Beg Pardon? – December 3, 2020

Stupid things we say

Shoot me an email.”  
Is it email season already?  Sure.  Soon as I see one, I’ll shoot it for ya.

We should have lunch one day.” 
No, um, we’d stand a better chance of having a baby.  I’m not up for that either, thank you.

I’m a hapless idiot, huh?”
Should I aspire to be full of hap?

“What on earth were you thinking?”
Um, nothin.  I’m male.  Not in the job description.

From the archives
Fooling around, cleaning-up “Surrogate Episode VIII” but got tangled up in just how far I could go.  Ended being fairly-well fed-up with myself. Let it sit.  Maybe later.  Well, shoot, that left me empty-handed.

Pulled a piece written originally in 2009.  Country lyrics.  Studio owner in Music City and I beat it about.  He admitted it was good but tough to put music under. What trashed the push though, was that the new “country” audience doesn’t want country, they prefer techno-engineered yelling.  This piece I’m gonna throw at you shortly is suited for a twangy novelty piece, good old boys half-potted and having fun pretending they are “bad boys.”  Surely at least R-rated.

If you don’t like country or novelty country you’re all done here.  See ya next time.

Still with me?  The piece does have a Christmas theme.  Makes it kind of seasonal, huh? Being lyric, it reads kind of like poetry.  Definitely not high-brow.  Old Saint Nick (Is Coming Pretty Quick) is now stuck out there in “Poetry and Lyrics.”  Take a look.

Now, if you’ll excuse me, Imma go look for some trouble. Shouldn’t be difficult.

Retired career IT software engineer, or as we were called in the old days, programmer, it's time to empty my file cabinet of all the "creative" writing accumulated over the years - toss most of it, salvage and publish what is worthwhile.

  1. Looking for more trouble! Look out for that old Saint Nick, I hear he’s pretty quick! Had to smile at those sayings you’ve mentioned, you’re right we do say some bloody bizarre things at times! All the best SP, hope you’re enjoying the middle of the week and getting ready for a lovely weekend! All the best my friend.

    1. I’d call that a mild success. Thank you for your time. You do see you have a fan, right? Fortunately you are a young man, else you would stand no chance at all of ever reading Midas.
