Our Absurd Life: 09/06/20 – What Really Matters?

What Really Matters?

Hola Night Owls

I hope everyone has had an outstanding day.  I spent my own outstanding day standing in my house–it was too hot to go outside.

Tonight’s Essential Cartoon was created for my friend Art and his blog.  I am hoping he’ll send me a link that I can attach to an upcoming email if anyone would like to visit.  I enjoy his self-help topics.  He writes about them very well, with valuable insight and humor.  

I wanted to thank Joseph E and Sandy S.  They both said they remembered their own fathers recite the peas with honey poem to them when they were kids.  Sandy’s version had a different 3rd line than the one George had sent me.

I eat my peas with honey

I’ve done it all my life

It makes the peas taste funny

But it keeps them on my knife.

If anyone else has a poem that their parents recited to them, then you are welcome to email it to me.  I’d love to see them.

I wish everyone a pleasant rest of the evening.

Until tomorrow. . .
