Twist and Shout


Since moving house, I've adjusted to most of the morning sounds that compete for my wandering attention as I sit in the backyard.

Birds chirp on their way past while squirrels rustle through walnut trees. Traffic hum and a tucked away air conditioning unit barely register. It's quiet here with me.

As quickly as peace sets in, war breaks out. Rat-a-tat-tat shrieking bursts from the windows next door as an Indian lady ensures the future hearing loss of her children and husband.

My only release is in the sound of the cap as it twists from a bottle of beer. By the four arms of Vishnu, it must be noon somewhere.

What is it with you and cranky Asian ladies?

Flannery Alden said...

...You're like a magnet for them.

Some Guy said...

Flann's right. Trouble seems to find you wherever you go.

Lisa said...

Thank goodness you've got the Beer Cure, Mrs. Piggle Wiggle.

Dale said...

It's the tapestry here I guess Flannery. I keep hoping for more run ins with the Russians but that's usually just in transit!

Thankfully it's just the kind of trouble I can handle Some Guy.

That's Mr. Piggle Wiggle to you Lisa!

I just realized that your move means no more Honeypot. You better start hanging out at Wal-Mart if you want good blog fodder.

Dale said...

You might be right, a new target is always nice.

I have found that whenever I move into a new place a couple of early morning warning shots usually keep the neighbors quiet.

Cormac Brown said...

No more "Honey?"

Crap, I'll forever miss "The Adventures of Honeypot."

Dale said...

I'm pretty sure I want to live next door to you Skyler's Dad. Wait a minute, I'm not so sure. Let me think about this.

She'll live on in my memory and maybe even yours Cormac. There may be a story or two I haven't told, I'll just have to think of them. Could be a while.

人家都說男人到大陸都會外遇包二奶
老婆淚眼說擔心他外遇
他了解老婆的擔心,只好用錢去彌補分離的缺憾
漸漸的,老婆的電話愈來愈少…
她說,她是怕自己太依賴
漸漸的,他知道其實是她有了外遇
於是,面對自己外遇的行為,他忽然覺得好過了些…

結婚、離婚、結婚又離婚...
陳經理喜孜孜的帶著他的新婚妻子參加公司聚餐
陳經理一直是身邊親友茶餘飯後的話題
這是他的第四任妻子
背叛似乎是總慣性
也似乎之於陳經理而言,離婚也能成為一種慣性
他總是因為外遇而離婚
一次又一次
當女人渴望名分,他就要求另外一個女人成全
他流連花叢,女人不因他的離婚紀錄而卻步
似乎卻總是認為自己能夠成為那個「特別的人」
結婚、離婚對他而言不具意義,只是一種手段
反正他總是能找到另一個傻女人

My motto entirely my dear boy. Plus what if you work NIGHTS huh? Your day's all screwed up. 8am might be 5pm to you. Beer is good anytime (I imagine)

Welcome back. Notice out of everything I focused on the beer.

Time for rehab I fear. Hi!

Dale said...

With two anonymous comments, do you get egg roll?

Beer is made with vegetables isn't it Miss Assassin? Doesn't matter, I'm drinking it anyway! Great to see you too!

曾經你也愛她的一切,如今卻因為有了婚外情,一切都變成了缺點。
婚外情甜蜜嗎?
因為少了柴米油鹽的破壞,所以婚外情份外浪漫!
婚外情有趣嗎?
因為時間極其寶貴不夠深刻了解對方,所以婚外情份外新鮮!

兒子交了個女友,我和老伴都不是很喜歡;
豐富社會歷練的我們一眼就看出這女生不如表現的單純,
但是兒子卻總是認為我們想太多。
朋友提議不如做婚前徵信調查看看,
希望兒子不要被騙,於是我們決定私下做婚前徵信
婚前徵信的結果才發現原來女方不僅交友複雜、晚上更做傳播兼差!
兒子看了婚前徵信的報告之後,才知道原來女友的乖巧全都是假象;
兒子說幸好有我們有做婚前徵信,不然等結婚之後才發現,一定又是一段不幸福的婚姻!
