Our Absurd Life: 10/25/20 – Bedtime Story

Bedtime Story

Hola Family & Friends

I hope everyone had a nice day.  It seemed like a nice sunny day in Salinas, but I was stuck inside playing catch-up (no, not playing with ketchup).

My friend Miriam caught the joke that the word pandemic does not have 9 letters.  I had originally lettered the cartoon with it reading “8-letters,” but as an afterthought I thought it would be funnier if it read “9 letters.”  So I used my handy-dandy electric eraser to make the edit.  Also, for our friends and family out of state, Chualar is a small town about 15 minutes from Salinas.  I often drive by it on my way to a real faraway place called King City.

My housemate Mike made spaghetti and meatballs with garlic bread for our Sunday fiesta.  And our gracious neighbor, Mimi, brought over a pumpkin-roll-cream-filled-dessert-delight.  Thanks Mike and Mimi!

I wish everyone a restful rest of your evening.  And if you haven’t yet, there’s still a little time to be creative.  You too, Sam!

Until tomorrow. . .
