Our Absurd Life: 08/18/21 – Spaghetti #7

Spaghetti #7

HOLA Night OwlZ & Early BirdZ

Tonight’s Essential Cartoon pokes fun at myself.  

Ever since I was a teen I had tried to roll my R’s when practicing Spanish.  35 years later, I still can’t do it.  I can flap my tongue around in my mouth like a flopping fish, but that’s all I can muster.  No nicely sounding motorboat R’s for me.  I learned tonight it’s  actually called an alveolar tap or trill.  

Thanks to Miriam for helping me to decide Spaghetti’s gender — female.  Tonight’s cartoon clinches it.

And thanks to George for putting a few Spaghetti cartoons in the Active Seniors Inc online newsletter this month.  That would make 700+ more people checking out Spaghetti.  (And thanks bunches, George, for all the help getting the new vanity and toilet for us, too!)

And thanks to Lisa & Jerry for a great celebratory meal last night.  It was great to see you both.

Until mañana + 1 . . .

Humor abounds.
