Here is My List of Things I don’t like or don’t Understand…

OM at Harsh Reality started this with his list.  See it here.  My list is different, but I notice some similarities.  Have fun!  Enjoy the nice weather and the holiday!

  1. I hate when I am on a dating site and I read about this fantastic woman and her traits.  I am really happy, then I read the last line, “If you voted for Trump, we won’t get along.”  Heck, that’s fine, but couldn’t you have said that FIRST!!!?
  2. I hate when you grab your phone for an important call you had forgotten to make, see the power bar is flashing and you punch in your number only to have the phone die when they answer.
  3. I hate when I grab my satchel and keys, drive 15 minutes to the store, face the crowd, only to find out I left my wallet next to the computer earlier – then, it rains.
  4. I hate when I download a good movie to my tablet, then, when I go to watch it, it says “expired”.
  5. I hate when I walk into the kitchen to get something, can’t remember what it is, figure that out and pick up the thing, then can’t remember why I wanted it.
  6. I hate when I get beat to a parking space or rush only to find the next car is over the line, and all I can think about is Kathy Bates in Fried Green Tomatoes.
  7. I really hate when a blog writer doesn’t know when to stop…

Namaste,

Scott

March Madness where the Madness is mostly in the Universities! (Language)

I have to admit I really like John Oliver.  He may not be all 100% accurate 100% of the time, but I think he hits the nail on the head more times than not.  So, here in March in Indiana, I bring you John Oliver on March Madness:

Namaste,

Scott

David glanced around.  The world of New York City, lights, busyness, and noise was gone.  All of it was gone.  In its place was…nothing.  Well, just sand, grass, and the expansive sky.  He had never seen so much blue.  The sun glared; the sand burned right through his loafers.  He scratched his head and the sand was already laced through it.

“Dang!” he thought.  “Those dating sites aren’t worth it.  I don’t understand… “Then, he did.  He thought back and he did.  When it said “occupation: witch”, he had laughed.  Perhaps, he should not have done that on the date.

Uphill Living

By Scott L Vannatter – 100 Words

Zane looked down below at the beautiful home of Mortimer.   Mortimer was having another party.  It was another party in which Zane had not been invited.  He could not help being poor.  It had taken him two days and all of his donkey’s efforts to move the five-foot boulder to a good spot in front of his house.

“Tonight would be a bit different,” he thought.  “Tonight, Mortimer would learn two things:  First, he would learn that parties are meant to be celebrations among friends and neighbors.  Second, he would learn that I am poor, but live uphill.”

He pushed.

Friday Fictioneers – 7/19/2013 – “Leaf It Alone” PG

Friday Fictioneers: 7/19/2013 – “Leaf It Alone”

By Scott L Vannatter (100 words)

The thought came harder than it was supposed to.

“Why can’t I ride it?!

I watch all the others ride it here in the park.

Some of them even look like they are training.

I work out.

I stretch and bend; maybe not as much as the young ones, but I try to keep up.

I don’t have a bike of my own, but here is one, good shape, decently new, not too many gears.

It’s just not fair.

Hmm, I think it’s those pedal things mostly.

Who am I kidding?

It’s really obvious; it’s because I am a tree.”
