Stuff Happens All The Time... Some Of It Sticks... Doesn't It... 😎

Life is filled with stuff that we stumble upon. Last week, a bunch of stuff, caught my attention...

I filled a prescription at the pharmacy on Tuesday. There was a notice on their board ; 'Tell us your humorous side effects stories and get featured on our website'. I thought about it. Who doesn't like to be 'featured'?

The mall is where I visited my shoemaker ; we all have one... don't we? The sign on the glass door said ; 'Back In Fifteen Minutes'. I guess you have to give people hope. He showed up an hour later. I stayed busy drinking coffee and casually gawking at well dressed lady shoppers. It wasn't as creepy as it sounds. OK... perhaps it was.

My 'new' young neighbor isn't quite used to the concept of 'real' mail. The mailman was delivering some envelopes last week. She caught me as I walked down the stairs and asked if she should tip him per piece of mail... or per visit .

I feel good about my bathroom again. I've had a leaky faucet (since forever), so I put a zip lock, sandwich bag around the tap. It's temporary, but I don't hear the drips any more ; unless the bag fills up and falls off. I'm sticking duct tape on the plastic...that should hold better.

We live in such a needy society these days, don't we? I had a power failure last Saturday ; in fact, the whole block went black. I was OK - thanks. I have an 'unlimited data plan' (on my cell phone), so I was still able - to 'log on' HERE . Some people though... such a reliance on electricity . I mean, take the milk and leftover chicken legs out of the fridge and put it into the snow, on your balcony. What's the problem?

It's hard to be upset if something bad happens... and YOU , are the one who caused it. My toilet was backed up. I've got enough issues with my own shit ; I certainly didn't need anyone else's... to confuse me.

There's other stuff I could mention. I'm sure you've got yours. Some of it sticks - doesn't it?

Do people get 'regular' mail? I do. 😊
I'm surprised my shoemaker is still in business. I don't give him enough work.
Who does? πŸ€”

I just enjoy your point of view on things, it certainly brings a new perspective to things. And yea she should only tip her Mail Man at Christmas, and I wonder what she would give him as a tip..

Oh how I wish we had snow here if there was a power outage to keep our stuff cold that would be great!!

The funniest one though was the prescription side effects I can somehow in my mind visualize all the HORROR stories that would be posted.

Thanks for sharing, and I hope your day is a great start to your Holiday week..

Seduce the mind and see what a wonderful adventure the body will take you on..

I'm shaking my head at 'humorous side effects'. What genius thought up that promotion? I suppose I must be humor impaired, because it's hard to think of a side effect that would be funny. Maybe excessive burping or farting.

The lack of electricity- folks just gotta think> I always have candles and batteries ( for the flashlights you pervert ). Leave the fridge closed and call the pizza place that delivers. I get snail mail and I believe in the US the mail carriers are not allowed to accept tips or gifts. I confess one year thought the guy who took such good care of my mail during my chemo- he was going to retire- I gifted him with a 6 pack of beer and $25 and told him to keep it under his bar. That said we all need to take care of our own shit and duct tape wiont fix that

Ah, yes...the Stuff of Life. You share it well.

Your faucet probably just needs a new washer. Isn't there a shut off knob underneath?

Opportunity may knock only once, but temptation bangs on the door forever!

Wow... I understand. I do.
I think it's all fixable... And at the very least.. πŸ’•
It's what it is. AND... let's make short bread cookies.... and worry about stuff later...
Yep... if LIFE were like that.

There's no 'shut off valve', for life... is there?
That's not what this was all about.

Aaaah, that puts a whole different spin on it. I approve (not that anyone cares ).

Man, I have nothing to tell (you can tell by my lack of posts lately). Heading up to my sister's lake home tomorrow to spend a couple days with her fam, should be nice. Have a good holiday, Paul.

When I'm postponing a leaky faucet fix, I lay a wash cloth in the bottom of the sink so I don't hear the drips hitting the sink.

I like your idea better. Thanks.

Life is full of snippets / moments in time. Some we choose to remember; others we brush off like a pesky gnat and continue on with our lives. My only Christmas wishes are for good news at my next medical appointment and peace and happiness for my family and friends.
