"T" is for:
'Time Bomb'. It's a game within the video game Wii Party.
For those of you not familiar with this particular game, the players take turns passing a game controller to each other, while pressing specific buttons on the controller. But you have to be very careful not to jostle the controller around too much, and you must press & release the correct button, at the correct time, otherwise the "Time Bomb" blows up, and the game is over.
Now, imagine a highly excitable, borderline ADHD 7-yo and an incredibly klutzy 6-yo trying to play this 'Time Bomb' game.
Absolute hilarity. They couldn't get past Round 1, and kept blowing each other up.
Who needs cable or satellite TV when you've got kids to keep you entertained?
"A" is for:
Not that I think that one zit necessarily qualifies as acne, but 'zit' starts with a "Z", not an "A", so bear with me here on this, folks . . . m'kay?
I have a zit on my chin, and I just popped it. So now it's oozing blood & pus, and it's disgusting. But I couldn't help it. I have a compulsive need to pop any zits that I get. It's a sickness.
It hurts. I had to put some peroxide on it to clean it up. :-(
It must be nearly "that time of the month", because that's really the only time my face breaks out. So be forewarned . . . PMS is on the horizon, people! Be prepared to duck and cover!
"C" is for:
Specifically, crime in my local area. After reading on John Thomas' blog about some humorous tidbits that appeared in his local paper's police blotter, I decided I'd take a closer look at my own local paper's blotter. I wasn't disappointed; the following stories appeared recently.
How's this for a doozy: A Wilkes-Barre, PA, woman told police, at 7:12 p.m. on 1/14/13, that someone stole her fruit basket. The U.S. postal service said it had been delivered on 12/19/12, but the woman never received it.
Or even better: A burglary in Wilkes-Barre, PA, was reported Saturday, 12/29/12, after the victim, no name or age given, said someone broke into her residence and stole her debit card, bra, and underwear. Police do not have a suspect.
"O" is for:
I hate this fucking thing.
