Random Reading

Filed under: Random ramblings — denisedayspencer @ 6:59 pm

Today’s “Random Ramblings” are going to all pertain to things I or somebody else have read lately.

Last week I saw a van with a business slogan on the side. The advertisement was for a product or program called “Suddenly Slim.” Oh really? How suddenly? For that matter, how slim? This could get kind of scary…

Then there was the box of “Frosted Mini-Wheats” with the subtitle, “Big Bite!” If the pieces are large enough to constitute a “big bite,” they’re not exactly “mini,” are they?

Friday I was driving along one of the country roads in these here parts. It was a quiet little-traveled state highway between one tiny town and another small village. There, by the side of the road in front of his house stood a boy of about nine, holding a big sign that said, “Car wash!” He was in the middle of nowhere. He had no helpers. There were no customers. I didn’t even see a bucket or a sponge. Now that’s what I call optimism.

Today our principal called to my attention a sentence in our student handbook proclaiming that “Students are not allowed in any of the school buildings during the school day.” That’ll keep us from having to deal with those darn kids!
