only with good friends
can you pair wine and nachos
then add in a dash of spicy chat.
‘life is a nacho. it can be yummy-crunchy or squishy-yucky.
it just depends on how long it takes for you to start eating it.’
— john updike
all kinds of people with all kinds of agendas paint the rock in this decades-old tradition in ann arbor. the chat below was found on my community website and i especially loved how s.a. was at the ready with his how-to directions and a bit of historical support.
G.A. Does anyone know how much paint is required to paint a message on “The Rock” at Hill and Washtenaw?
P. L. Funny, my husband and I were just talking about this when we drove by it the other day.
S. A. Old gallon of house paint for the base, one old mop or broom, go to Denny’s down the road, come back and it’s dry for the message.
T. S. Can’t believe that no one has commented that is is illegal and vandalism…
S. A. Even Al Gallup, the living son of the Gallup who placed it there in honor of Washington, is okay with it.
‘passion is one great force that unleashes creativity,
because if you’re passionate about something,
then you’re more willing to take risks.’
sweet kinder spends her free choice time playing with the doll house.
when i stop over for a visit and ask why all the people are facing one way
she tells me they are waiting in line for the one bathroom.
(if you look closely, all the way to the right,
you’ll see the one toilet with someone sitting on it,
as well as a chef serving food out of a window,
and more people and animals scattered around downstairs)
what an amazing real world scenario.
how can i not love every single day of my job?
‘waiting in line is a great opportunity to meet people, daydream, or play.’
September 24th: National Punctuation Day
* “A celebration of the lowly comma, correctly used quotation marks,
and other proper uses of periods, semicolons, and the ever-mysterious ellipsis.”
National Punctuation Day gives you the opportunity
to dress up your sentences with all kinds of context and accentuation!
Or, take the day to remind yourself what a semicolon actually does.
‘i’m tired of wasting letters when punctuation will do, period.’
*(i may not be qualified to celebrate this holiday,
as i endlessly abuse this system of grammatical organization.)
