The bad news is, my appetite has returned with a vengeance. Oh how I long for the postoperative* days of not feeling hungry and weighing less as a result. And I really got stupid groceries now that I’m hungry. If I see one more can of spaghetti-Os Ima scream.
[*News flash: I had surgery]
Anyway. I can’t recall now who sent me the banana bread during that, my convalescence, fmr., but whoever sent it made teensy little cute individual loaves, and put them two-by-two, like delicious Noah’s Ark loaves, into really nice plastic baggies.
My point is I froze a bunch of them and the other day I was pushing aside the frozen salmon I’ve been ignoring, I’ve been pushing it upstream, and what did I discover but a DEEEEEElicious Noah’s Ark banana bread couple! Oh, it was a fabulous discovery.
And that’s about as exciting as it gets, over here. I’ve been working like a demon, and you know how THEY work. I’ve been stroking my tail with an arrow at the end. Why do demons have tails with arrows at the end? Who decided that was a thing? Who decided they were red? Am I getting all my demon imagery from Underwood Deviled Ham? Why is anything mixed with mayonnaise suddenly “deviled”?
Also, while we’re delving into the depths of my thoughts, remember how I didn’t know England was an island till I was 25 and, you know, got to England?
And remember when I didn’t know the Underground Railroad wasn’t underground till I was, you know, 52?
Last time I wrote you, I asked for advice about making my African violet bloom, and I googled some follow-up stuff about it after I read your thoughts. I don’t mean I’m literally reading your thoughts now like Sylvia Browne or whatever.
Anyway, what I read mentioned that in Africa, where the violets originate …
And I was all, wait.
AFRICAN VIOLETS ARE FROM AFRICA?
And right then, I knew.
You know how everyone thinks they have good taste and a sense of humor and that they’re good drivers? Does everyone also think they’re a little smarter than average? Because I always did, but signs point to no. Signs point to Africa. Is Africa an island?
Oooo, this is a good theme. What’s a thing you learned that after you learned it you felt like an imbecile?
