AA mother of an infant patient expressing her frustration at being here for hours (like a hundred other people) to AA staff physician - "I don't want to have to start acting like a Black person here."

Same woman reportedly talking about our tech - "If that Indian fucker walks by and looks in our room one more time..." I asked him if he was Indian, I had assumed some Middle Eastern ancestry, and he said he was "Pakistani, close enough". I have no reason to assume he's not as American as anybody else.

A mechanic walks up to the Ford parts counter with an invoice in hand - "take off the service charge and add $300 to the cost of the transmission". Why? Let me guess; a service charge in the hundreds will piss anybody off but the same amount can be added to the price of an already expensive part and nobody will be the wiser.

While spending an hour at the dealership this morning I encountered a woman who could well have been a sister to internet sensation Sweet Brown



When I walked into the waiting room she had trapped some nerdy little white guy who was falling all over himself to be polite and sound engaged by nodding and saying uh-huh but at the same time looked like he wanted to die. Customers came and went and she never let up. Some of the more memorable parts...

-her Detroit home ("Mansfield, between Puritan and Six Mile." I know because she announced it) burned out. The insurance company gave her 169K and the home was completely rebuilt from the inside and now they have tile everywhere. "I mean everywhere."
-Insurance company began with an offer of $70,000 but that's no kind of money at all. "You can dream a number and win that much." I'm having the wrong kind of dreams, I think.
-Her mother in law hated her. Hated her. But her own husband married her for love. "That women she tricked her husband. She was seven months pregnant when they got married, but there wasn't no baby in my stomach when I got married because my husband loved me." I get what she was saying, but you could argue it the other way, too.
-Security guard who chased then shot dead the man who robbed his house... he did a good thing. No argument from me.

I could go on, but I'll cut to the chase. This one dude showed up and was kind of into the screed and after a while tried to jump in with a story of his own. "My house was struck by lightening and burned" he offered. Now that's got to be a pretty interesting story, but it didn't slow down Sweet II one bit.

Two ladies at the grocery store:

"I ran into Richie a couple weeks ago."

"Oh yeah? How's he doing?"

"He's doing really good. I guess he cut way back on the heroin but he's drinking a lot more."

Kid with his mom in front of me at the Honeybee/El Colmena checkout. Kid is hugging this hideous gargoyle looking thing -

"Honey, it's a pinata; it's going to get smacked"

Cross to Explanations.

Turns out that they're sold empty and you fill them up with whatever. I asked. Mom also shared that she's bought cheap ones but the Honeybee models are "virtually indestructable". Huh, I thought destruction was the whole idea. Cross to Ride the Kids Hard and Put Them to Bed Wet.

Also, specific themed pinatas may or may not be available by special order. Hold off on that Trump, Hillary or Obama model until we're sure we can get them.

OMG: NAACP leader uses F-word to apologize for using T-word after N-word meeting


http://www.theamericanmirror.com/omg-naacp-leader-uses-f-word-to-apologize-for-using-t-word-after-n-word-meeting/

Synopsis: high school kids in Phoenix play a racist prank and are compelled to publicly kiss ass and cry and apologize. In covering the event broadcast media gets remarks from the head of the local NAACP (a white guy, by the look of it). NAACP head forgets the absolute rule that every mic and every camera should always be regarded as live, which in this case they were and it's fortunate that they were or we'd not have heard him remark after the interview that one of the reporters has a nice rack.

...nipping...


I'm going to leave out the actual dialogue, but the long & short of it is (1) nipping is a fashion faux pas for girls, (2) guys have probably never heard the term (I hadn't) but we know what it is and up to a certain age spotting it is like finding gold, and (3) surgical tape offers a ready solution. Oh, and (4) evidently one of my little girls now has cans.

I think you're going to have to find a new adjective other than "little" for your daughter now.

I heard something and figured it out at a high school graduate's open house last weekend.

1. You have to be pretty old to have the name "Dick"
2. You have to be pretty old to be comfortable shouting across the din to a new acquaintance "Dick; my name is Dick!"

Living fossils, you know. When time finally takes them then the cruel twist of language and culture will have passed.
