You Never Know When Inspiration Will Be Delivered




Once again I have bamboozled an editor into believing I have talent. I am in the Boston Herald this morning (and this afternoon, this evening and the foreseeable future, if you buy a hard copy, which you should because being able to present same at the door will entitle you to admission into my party celebrating a Pulitzer being awarded to me - perhaps sometime in 2043 - wherein there will be free Cream of Wheat!)

As for the title of this piece, I wrote the newspaper piece immediately upon returning home from a store where the incident described in the newspaper piece took place. It was entirely happenstance and I was able to write it in about ten minutes. Thank you, God.

As always, thanks for stopping by. Additional thanks will be headed your way should you go to the Boston Herald website and leave a comment telling them what a wonderful fellow I am. I'm not actually tracking your internet movements, so I won't be able to tell for sure if you do, but I'll trust in your innate goodness and generosity.

Soon, with more better stuff.

P. S. The Cream of Wheat photo came from Mommy Noire. It features a recipe for "Grown Up Cream of Wheat" (which I hoped might contain brandy, or something else intoxicating, but no such luck.)

I tried to comment but for some reason it would not let me. I did learn something, though. Give a guy or gal a chance.

If you really want brandy in your Crem of Wheat, you have to add it after it is cooked.
Otherwise the alcohol will burn off and all you have is the flavor.
I suggest you substitute the brandy for orange juice.

All things considered, I can't believe I really wrote my previous comment.

You are right, it doesn't cost anything to smile and be polite. We don't make people get signatures to be on the ballot here, but you do have to get signatures to get any kind of initiative on the ballots, like the recent one where they want to sptil our town into two smaller towns. They couldn't get enough signatures, so they have to wait two years to try again.

for some unknown, to me, reason people just dont want or know how to be civil or even try to be polite ...

It costs nothing to smile and be polite, you are right, but what a weird way to run for office. have to get people to sign something. Can't you just fill out the forms and get your name on the ballot?

Not in most locales. I agree - anyone who truly wants to run should at least get their name onto the ballot. From there, people can choose to vote or not.
