Word of the Day...

dysleptric (adj)

To purposefully make a bad choice.

As in: King David was being dysleptric when he married Bathsheba.

Goal: Use this word three times in a sentence during the day. Come back and post people reactions here on this blog.

Today's blog posted in honor of John and Dena Culpepper and to smart alec's everywhere and those that love them :)

Here's your Sign...and mine must be on again!

My friend Kellie swears I have a sign on my forehead that says:
"If you are weird and have slight or majorly off balance opinions that you'd like to share come talk to me".
For a while the light must have gone out of my sign because I hadn't had any of these "weird" encounters for a while, but then came Blackmon Mooring Steamatic...who I must say did a lovely job extracting water from my flooded house but who's hiring criteria must include the ability to talk the bark off a stump! I have heard more random chatter on the most wide ranging and totally useless topics...such as opinions on why a 20ish year old guy should or should not continue to write romoantic literature, whether same said guy should continue to date a girl from a halfway house...whether said girl should change her lifestyle or not...whether said girl was capable of changing or not...what was the correct proceedure for taking soggy carpet from the house; roll by roll or wait till there was pile and then remove the pile. Then I heard the opinions of a slightly older father of 5 on what to do with sexual perverts, what to do with the Middle East, (oddly enough the solutions were similar) how to raise pit bulls and rotweilers and how to raise kids (again solutions were similar), today I got to hear about salary caps in football and baseball, about the ungodly perspective of Toyata entering the Nascar arena and the positives of driving around picking up fans from previously flooded homes verses driving a forklift.

I think I'm going to get a tatoo that says..."I see your lips moving but I don't have a clue what your saying" maybe it'll counter a little that sign that I can't seem to turn off!
