People Watching


When I was a kid on the farm, we "went to town" once a week, usually on Saturday, shopping. I got to go to the dime store and the grocery store, probably other places too, but I just don't remember. My Dad usually went into the dime store and got a bag of maple nut goodies (still one of my favorites) and would sit in the car and "people watch".

Now when I am stuck on a dead table I casino gaze which is the same thing as people watch. You can see just about anything in a casino...from eye candy to eye sore.

The joke going around last year was --what do overweight men and young women have in common?? Answer: You can see their ass crack when they sit. Thank God the styles have changed and ladies waists have moved North again. Young guys are still hanging onto jeans and shorts so baggy that the crotch is around their knees, the waist around their hips, and their boxers prominently displayed.

It is great fun to watch people, I especially like to see some of the stuff people walk out their door wearing...doesn't anyone have a mirror at home?? I actually saw one girl wearing a t-shirt saying "I'm too drunk to f***, so just lick it". The stars weren't on the shirt though, the actual word was. Can you believe someone would actually wear that??? And she was cute and tiny...I just don't get it!! Around the holidays it's fun to see people in their finery, usually lots of sparkles and 4 inch heels. Oh and of course, bling. Even the guys dress during the holidays and it is nice to see people looking good. We even get to see the occasional bridal party, more so at Lake Tahoe than here.

Another thing I have noticed is that a lot of women only comb the hair around their face. Many of them have a big flat spot on the back of their head--I make sure to look at the back of my head with a mirror before I go out the door!

Now a word about today's weather....we are experiencing extreme weather. The prediction is for wind 35 to 50 mph with gusts up to 70 mph. It is unbelievable....you can taste the sand in your mouth!

Mary,


I got an e-mail with some shirts on it with sayings like you saw. My favorite was "I don't have Tourettes..... You're just a cunt!". I will send you the rest.
