Past Imperfect – #389

Once again, the members of Omega Delta Dawn make the walk of shame back to the sorority house after questionable decisions were made at the nearby fraternity… Betty, far left: “You’d think I’d learn one of these days that I shouldn’t drink anything a man is offering. They […]

Past Imperfect – #233

Casting Director, confused: “Okay, what exactly are you trying to say with this photo in your portfolio? It comes across as a little… odd. Help me out a bit.” Jean, auditioning: “Well, I was conveying my glamorous side and showing that I can do high-society roles. I can […]

A Pair of Pearls and Funny Girls

A biography, in snippets…   Barbara Joan Streisand, day one, dripping wet: “Hello!” Ida, mother, catching her breath after the nexus exodus, looking down: “Meh. Maybe the next one will be prettier.” Barbara: “But I can sing and dance and crack jokes!” Ida: “That’s nice. Here, play with […]

The Corona Chronology: Day 38

Monty, lower: “Thank you for using our Touchless Delivery Service.” Kate, upper: “As if I had any choice. This wretched caramba-virus has made a mess of things.” Monty: “It’s corona.” Kate: “What! I didn’t order any beer. How absurd. I have never stooped to such levels of depravity […]

The Corona Chronology: Day 34

Note: I’m once again breaking my “wait two years before you repost something” rule. Apparently, the pandemic has turned me into a protocol rebel. (But not like those idiots with guns who are protesting at state capitals. I never want to be associated with that mess.) I stumbled […]

The Corona Chronology: Day 33

Note: As the lockdown continues for some of us, whilst others are allowed to run free and get tattoos and manicures because their state governors don’t understand basic health science, it’s possible that some of us might be experiencing delusions due to the discombobulations. I pulled this one […]
