St. Patrick’s Day – March 17, 2021

Believe it or not went from ABBA to ABAB in “Aging Gracefully”. Try that sometime! Might be a bit randy. No swearing, just randy. As in “Eew!” Happy wearin o’ the green? “Happy St. Patrick’s Day to you!” “Bah! Humbug!” “That’s your gleeful greeting for Christmas, Grinch.” “Okay. How about ‘What a load of blarney’?”Continue reading “St. Patrick’s Day – March 17, 2021”

At A Loss – March 4, 2021

Recycle, recycle, recycle. Dunno where to go.  Readers need my rambling to have something that makes everything else seem better by comparison. Started off on a rant.  Was a good one too.  One of my faves.  The gender/sex/undecided thing.  Determined a lot of difficulty or controversy is because those who love to feel themselves theContinue reading “At A Loss – March 4, 2021”

Kids These Days – March 3, 2021

Dang. Two days in a row. I apologize.What else will I do with this junk? Master Andy Jackson Naughty Andy Jackson caused his parent some distress,A small scrape here, a dust-up there, this time an ugly mess.Pure of heart, with motives gold, still troubles fell like hail.The Jacksons now, are pressed for cash to makeContinue reading “Kids These Days – March 3, 2021”

Miss Anne Thropy – March 2, 2021

There’s people that amaze me – the impressions they beget.I’ve paid some mind to what they’ve said, seen stages that they’ve set.Please don’t think that I’m unkind,Having spoken thus my mind.With mild distress, I do confess, these folks I’ve never met. © SP Wilcenski 2021

Ode to a Narcissist – February 19, 2021

We’d share our time and words exchange.Our social contract thus free-range. You spoke to me, I spoke to youThe way good friends of course should do. Yes, I heard you and you heard me;Quite back-and-forth as should it be. ‘Til of a sudden one fine day –I saw the real game here at play. IContinue reading “Ode to a Narcissist – February 19, 2021”

Two-day Rule – February 18, 2021

Hey, Jack! – February 7, 2021

Searching for a character name for a fictional piece, a name suggesting significance from legend or history, I did a few quick searches.   You know, something to match or contradict my character.  I’m still looking. Along the way, the name “Jack” impressed me in several ways.  Aside from naming a placeholder in a pair ofContinue reading “Hey, Jack! – February 7, 2021”

Lost in the Fog – January 30, 2021

Photo by Tomas Anunziata on Pazootchkie!  Sitting here avoiding work on the next installment of “In Their Own Words” by poking my nose into WordPress comment alerts, I happened to glance out my office window.  Readers I think, judge I spend too much time looking out that window.  You could make a case.  I’dContinue reading “Lost in the Fog – January 30, 2021”

Electron Wastebin – January 4, 2021

Time to get out the whisk broom and dustpan.  Let’s open up the bulging “Wordpress Pending” folder.  If an item looks useable, use it.  If it was ill-conceived when scrubbed from the post it was intended to adorn and still shows no promise, scrap it.  If it’s a complete mystery, leave it in “Pending” anotherContinue reading “Electron Wastebin – January 4, 2021”
