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 […]

The Corona Chronology: Day 32

After the eye-opening exposé that had aired at Bonnywood Manor the previous night, concerning corncobs and lonely Saturday nights, it was difficult for actress Joan Crawford and director David Lean to keep a straight face whilst handing out the statuette for Best Supporting Actor. But they were professionals, […]

The Corona Chronology: Day 31

Looking back, I suppose I should have known that this would happen. After all, folks are huddled in their habitations, discombobulated by having their daily routines routed. They are desperate for diversion, and since many of them have forgotten (or never knew, for the younger crowds) how to […]

The Corona Chronology: Day 30

Note: During these troubling times with the pernicious pandemic, wherein we are all cloistering in place, we sometimes learn things we didn’t really want to know about each other, as evidenced by this dusty dialogue from the archives…   Past Imperfect – #181   William: “What the hell […]

The Corona Chronology: Day 27

Once upon a time, in the land of Pandemic Trumpmerica, members of the Association of Republican Governors with No Soul had a meeting. The topic? How to re-open their states in the quickest way possible in order to maybe, possibly get a quick pat on the head from […]

The Corona Chronology: Day 26

Cleo the Cat: “Daddy.” Daddy continues working on a story, in the zone. Cleo: “Daddy.” Daddy is trying to decide which character should get the zinger line he thought of in the shower this morning. This is a critical plot point. Cleo leaps into the ample lap of […]

The Corona Chronology: Day 25

Howdy Folks, How y’all doin’? Still holin’ up at the homestead and coverin’ your piehole until you can’t hole any more and gotta run to the feed store? Good, good. Listen, I got me an idea for a blog post thingy and I wanted to run it by […]

The Corona Chronology: Day 24

Note: I realize I just posted this thing last year, breaking my own general rule about not re-sharing a piece for at least two years, but it IS May Day. And I don’t have anything else prepared so, yep, we’re going with it…   10 Random and Absurd […]
