Sesame Street Wisdom

So I turn on the TV this morning so I can watch something while stretching out pre-run. Stretching is very important at my age. I like being able to walk upright.

When Our TV comes on it defaults over to channel 2, which is PBS in our area. Then you have to turn the cable on, (all by remote, since one of our kids, (or possibly the wife), broke the power switch on the actual TV. No one's fessed up yet), and flip to whatever you want. For me its ESPN in the morning, porn at night.

At any rate, this morning "Sesame Street" was on. In the time it took me to flip over, I heard one of the muppets ask another muppet, "Do you know my friend Margarita?" And I thought to myself "Oh yes, I know your little friend Margarita. She's a cute little number who comes on all smooth and dainty, and then the next morning you wake up and realzie she's clubed you over the head and stolen your wallet, leaving you with a bad headache and no money. Yes, I do indeed know Margarita."

In other news, it doesn't look like we'll be making a move on that house. While it did lack zombies or a graveyard, the kitchen is very small, the master bedroom has zero closets, there is no room in the house for our pool table, the lake in the back is a resevoir for the next town and therefore completely off-limits for any kind of activity, and the in-law apartment is directly below what would be our bedroom I am rethinking our ability to buy a house and remain in this town, as the prices just seem ridiculous for what one gets. So I'm rooting for a near total collapse of the housing market.

Don't judge me.

I'm thinking that it's good they didn't ask, "Do you know my little friend Big Bird?"

That sucks.

I don't see how anybody affords to live up there period. You'd shit if you knew what we get for the same money. Plus all the educational benefits of living in Bumfuck.

Tysgirl, the pool table gets a lot of use. We're keeping it.

LS, I spent enough time in my parents house trying to havve sex without them hearing me. I don't need a repeat.

E, I skinny-dip anyway. it's the not being able to use the canoe that bothers me.

Maggie, yes, that could have gone horribly wrong.

Syd, tell me about it. Our town has a top 5 rated school system in the state. The next town over, (which actually shares our high school!), is ranked like 150. We can get a colonial with 11+ acres for $100,000+ less than what we're looking at here for two acres. We may need to rethink our approach.

I'm just impressed that you run!

The only thing that will ever prompt me to actually run is one of my kids bing hurt.. and even then it would need to be something really serious.. you know, like a head wound or something. :D

Thanks for not telling me what you use it for because I'm 99.9% sure I don't want to know.

I miss margaritas! Really good ones, with fresh lime juice....

Sesame Street has a lot of wisdom, but they really blew it with the furry red guy. Have you ever seen "All About Eve?" The furry red guy is Eve, and Grover is Bette Davis.

Crying over here at your description of Margarita-so accurate.

Housing in my town is cheap-dirt cheap. We're on the decline as a city, with the money you're talking about, you could own a whole city block here.

Small kitchen, eh, maybe.

Then you lost me with a bedroom that has zero closets. My poor shoes.

No room for the pool table? See ya. I's got to go.

No need to mention the other stuff. You lost me when the words, "zero and closet space" were joined together.

Groovy Lady, that's because you haven't actually seen it!

Tysgirl, the DNA makes the balls jump. Interpret that anyway you want.

Alkelda, I'm sorry, Gover as Betty Davis? I need to go do drugs.

Nonny, true, but then I'd own a whole city block of Akron and who the hell wants that?

PG, the real deal breaker was probably no master bath. We're tired of sharing with the kids.

Actually, the prob with the housing market started with the banks' creating a lending glut, so we're waaay past judging anyone for that, particularly if you're not a large corporation.

Enjoy the upright walking while it lasts ;)

I never judge anyone. I’m too concerned that they’ll return the compliment.
