Hi Lady Lee!!!!!!!!!  And thanks Linda for hosting.

As kids, we love to yell from high on the hilltop and see if our voiced echoed.  I guess we were never up high enough but I do not recall every hearing the reverberating sounds of Hello, Hello, Hello, Hello … except from my brother standing next to me saying those words in an echo like voice.

For some weird reason the movie line “in space, no one can hear you scream” is on a loop in my brain.  I wonder if things echo in space?  I wonder if a tree falls in the woods and no one is around to hear it does it make a sound?  Perception is everything y’all.  Very trippy.

My picture of the Super Blood Wolf Moon from last night was very blurry.  In my defense, it was cold and I heard wolves howling.  I had just seen “The Passage” and I thought they were going to eat me. Hubba, hubba Mark-Paul Gosselaar. But he is not a wolf!

And, … well, … Okay I did not hear wolves.  I heard my grand-pups.  Anyway, I took the out of focus shot and ran back inside. This morning the moon was still out in full force and stopped twice in two different parking lots to get these.  Oh and once at a red light.  Shame, shame on me.

And that’s all she wrote.  For this … I am going to try and get my Haiku on.

So, … Funny Math the Obesity Crisis Edition

I treated myself to a happy hour Coke with lime from Sonic. I’m really off the sauce I promise. This treat is a once in a very long time occurrence. Upon purchase, I observed funny math and I feel like whining.

My drink cost $1.99 + .30 cents for 1/4 of a lime minus $1.00 for happy hour. When it was all said and done, I paid .99 cents + .30 cents = $1.29 + .11  for tax = $1.40 total per 20 ounces. Hey! Why wasn’t my lime .15 cents?!?!?


Anyhow, memba the $1.40. “Real” as opposed to happy hour price is $1 more with a skootch more tax. 😂. A regular 20 oz. bottle of Coke without lime (princess don’t do diet) from the ice house or grocery store is $1.89 plus tax. Immediately consumable gets taxed in Tejas; I checked. A two liter is 99 cents plus tax.

Do ya see where I am going here? Bigger is cheaper. BUT WHY?!?!?!?!?!

Now I get why the happy hour 20 ounce is more … well because half of a half of a lime is a delicacy apparently.  Uh duh.  And car hop service is special (no sarcasm because I couldn’t make and car hop those drinks). The regular price should be more than the bottle IMO.  I am paying for service.  My only regret is that I parked in stall #13 cuz ya know, 13 is unlucky.

Still I had to exclaim:  Sacribleu!!!

I mean really?!?!?!  Don’t “they” … those greedy money makers know that soda is the new smoking in the way standing is the new sitting or sitting is the new smoking or whatever. 😆 And now I feel fluffy … and nauseous. Drinking my H2O in the hopes of flushing out those toxins.

I really need a 10 day cleanse retreat like in the book “Nine Perfect Strangers” by Lianne Moriarty.  And no I am not a paid reviewer.  I just really enjoy this book.  I think I could give up electronics for 10 days.  I know I could dig on someone else meal planning for me.  And I am sort of certain I could take a vow of silence for the first five days.

Okay now.  You can quit laughing.  I hear you.  But tis true, I know how to shush when called upon.

As always more to come.
