Put a Book on It by Rox of Spazhouse

Some of us are delusional in thinking that we are handy. My boyfriend and I have different tactics when it comes to home projects. He calls someone immediately. I “try” to fix it. This one reason why we like having our own places.

Recently, last week, I finally got plumbers over to fix a leak hidden somewhere in my vast lawn. I learned of this when I received an enormously large utility bill. Thinking it was the electric, (I live in Florida) I looked at the charge of usage. Holy crap. I am using quite a bit of water. I called the utility company. The customer service woman was very pleasant and explained the bill to me. …

The image is actually an iTouch by Rox of Spazhouse

I did not want you. At all. Due to advancement in technology and communication I felt that I was pushed into purchasing you. I was perfectly, almost happy with the smart burner phone (LG) with the very cool phone number I had for years. People to this day ask how I received such a spy sounding phone number. I paid for my service as I went along. Unused credits rolled over all the time and only when I roamed from my area code did I see a decrease in my credits. But, I prided myself in telling people that I can simply toss this burner and get another. …

Five Points’ Beautiful Garbage Can by Rox of Spazhouse

It is very simple. Take a different path or road. Do not take your normal route. Notice your new surroundings, think about what you see. Your brain will thank you.

Changing your routine allows you to become open to the unknown and serendipity and new connections in your brain. I chose to walk to the coffee shop on this street instead of biking.

You were tossed from a car with such vehemence that all your contents were scattered into the dental office bushes some distance away.

Why were you thrown? And with such force? The distance was at least yards away? What were they mad at?

Was the gift of banana bread just purchased from Fresh Market for $4.99 not enough?

How about the small first aid kit, complete with bandaids and neosporin was not to your person’s liking?

I guess this goes for the Burt’s Bees tinted lip conditioner and hand sanitizer as well.

Were you a gift to someone who felt being friends with your giver was such a burden? The recipient flung your small thoughtful container with such force only someone who is used to looking for treasure on the ground can find your scattered contents. Was it the untrained eye of the recipient a seemingly small and meaningless gift? I pick you up and marvel at my good fortune at finding you and the contents of you so early in the morning on my way to the pool. …

Found three orphan Hershey Kisses at the corner of Osceola and Oak St. Contact me if you lost them. You need to know what flavor they are.

Happy Friday in the Neighborhood.

Mozart was poor, I am poor. Mozart was married; I am married, Mozart’s gifts were recognized when he was still a child; my grade school put me in an advanced reading level as a child. Mozart was succeed by a a president named Johnson; I often work with a writer named Johnson. Mozart was hailed as a world renowned super-genius after his death; I, too can wait that long. CM from “National Lampoon” Magazine from circa 1990s or there about.
