Hockey players love spitting
I don't get the correlation between sports and spitting -
or why the cameras seem intent to focus in on it every single time.
It makes me sick. ( literally - I gag every time I see it )
Really, who needs to do that and a better question might be - who needs to see it?
Anyway it seems prevalent in Hockey for some reason.
I gag every time
And John roars.................
This is the Stanley Cup that the winning team will take home
Do you think it's a coincidence that it looks like a spitoon?
I don't ...................
John says - Well what do you want them to do with it?
Suzan says - WITH WHAT?
John says - Their Spit
Suzan says - I don't know - where the hell does it come from in the first place?
John says - It's a very physical game you know
Suzan says - I can spend the day vacuuming - moving furniture around - cleaning toilets - making beds - and not feel the need to spit all over the place because of the exertion.............
Suzan says - I think Men just like to do it
( I have to mention here that I've never seen John spit - never - but he may be the only man I know that doesn't )
Men love to do it so much that it was once common for spittoons to be all over the freaking place.
Courtrooms - Hospitals ( OMG ) - Restaurants etc.
What are they?
A bunch of Camels for crying out loud?
So now I'll share a story with you - that's absolutely unbelievable to me
AND I SHOULDN'T BE SHARING IT
AT ALL except I giggle my head off every time I think of it ...................
I come from a family of secret holder's. ........and window closer's so they'd all be mortified if they knew how much I share...................
Most of you were introduced to my two Grandmothers ( HERE ) it would make sense to read it if you haven't -
One of my Grandmother's was the epitome of class - always -
Slip - check
Dress - check
Stockings - check
Heels - check
Hat - check
Hat pin - check
Red Lipstick - check
Hair dyed and permed - check
Matching shoes and purse check -
You get it, right?
One day we were out shopping - just my Nana and I - and as we walked around the aisles there was a little girl who kept sticking her tongue out at me -
I remember I tugged at my Grandmother's sleeve whining about the little girl
To which my Grandmother turned around and said something to the girl's mother -
I didn't have a clue what was being said ( my Grandmother was fluently bilingual and the entire conversation was in French - this was long before I knew a word of French ) the conversation became very heated and I was getting very very nervous.
As it reached it's height - the lady turned her back to my Grandmother and snarled out something that must have been over the top insulting because my Grandmother quietly said something under her breath - and when the lady whipped around to reply - my Grandmother stepped back and SPAT AT HER. !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
OMG - it was disgusting and brilliant all at the same time.
As we walked away I turned around and stuck my tongue out at the little girl.
We were such a dynamic duo - Nana and I.
She was my very own - real life Mary Poppins - always striving to teach me how to be a lady.
And except for that little slip up she was always the perfect lady in my eyes.
And no one ever knew about that slip up except for family -
and now all of you
( I think she's turning over right about now )
Sorry Nana, even skeletons in the closet need to come out every once and awhile and dance.
My Mother once told me that I made her a nervous wreck - she never knew what was going to come out of my mouth.
" Nothing's sacred in your world " she worried.
Well it was never spit Mom - not once.
It's Skunk Mating season - Hallelujah !!!
I wait anxiously every Spring for that sweet aroma to permeate every wall in my home - and wake up to it gagging - it's just so awesome !
Hey Pepe !
You think you could go hang around another street ?
I hear the ladies are prettier over there.................
And a random thought I had this morning.....................from where I sit in my office I can see the Church down the road ( it's very close )
As I'm typing up my posts in the morning I usually see this from my window
That's the early morning sun shining on the triangular window - isn't that spectacular ?
That's what I call sacred..................
( not silly secrets )
Does it make up for an otherwise gross chat today ?
It's part of a post I'm working on but thought I'd show it to you all today.
Hope the sun is shining wherever you are.....................
Have a wonderful day AND weekend everyone
