Random ramblings from my beer soaked melon about politics, religion, sex, stupidities, nature, and any other subject that penetrates the haze. Sometimes crude and not for the faint of heart or people with normal intelligence, or an abundance of common sense.

I always wanted to be somebody, but now I realize I should have been more specific
Lilly Tomlyn.

List 6 things about yourself that start with a letter.
Jackiesue gave me S a few days ago and I am gonna try to think up 6 words that start with it before I get a bad grade for turning in an assignment late.
Let’s see…

Semi-erect: Get your minds out of the gutter. I have a bad back and throw it out once in awhile. That’s one reason this move is going so slow. I often have trouble standing up straight and look like a real old man when I walk, but I get over it after about a month.

Semi-literate: I was edumacated in the Good old USA. I couldn’t read at the end of second grade and got to do it over again. My parents were given the choice of letting me go on to third grade even though I couldn’t read my Dick and Jane book.
In the seventh grade I was required to take reading as it was required. I finished all the work required in the first 4 weeks and after that became the teacher’s assistant and spent half my time reading all the books in the school library. In every test they gave me I read with 100% comprehension. I read everything at a different speed so they couldn’t pin my reading speed down.
When I moved in my sophomore year the school librarian cried when she said goodbye and asked me who was going to keep the dust off all the books.

Semi-shy: Well not really semi in this case. I have always been extremely shy and withdrawn except when alcohol is involved. Then people wish I would go back to being shy.

Semi-sweet: Well that’s what people keep telling me. I don’t buy it but people keep saying I’m sweet, so I compromise and say semi-sweet.

Semi-couscous: I tend to go through life paying only partial attention. I seem to have about 10 different things running through my noggin at any given time. This makes me seem to be not paying attention. When people call me on it they usually find out that I can tell them what they were saying when I seemed to be a million miles away. Of course usually I am a million miles away but remember what they said. I tend to forget it when it tries to go from short term to long term memory.

Semi-driver: I really was for a short time. I haven’t driven in about twelve years but still have my Commercial Drivers License. I doubt I could pass the physical to work at it but I paid $3000.00 for the training so I’m gonna keep it as long as I can.
I loved the traveling but The Boss had trouble taking care of everything at home and that’s when I first started having trouble with my neck.
My two stepdaughters were teenagers and a handful at the time. Me coming home didn’t help though.
Well that’s me in a semi-nutshell, or is that a nutty semi-shell.
Dumb but it keeps me from lifting heavy boxes for awhile.

    Matt who... whatever!!!
    I like the semi-theme here. Shows semi-willingness to be open minded. And semi-smarts. And you could be driving a Semi.
    I think you have a semi-nutty inside.
