Is Something Wrong Here?

I just got back from Wally-World and today was the first time in a week that I've been outside the house.   Literally: the last time we were oot and aboot was for a commissary and beer re-supply mission that occurred exactly a week ago today; and not-so-literally, as in we've actually stepped outside to take the garbage out, dust off The Tart, and to see if the sunshine was warm enough for an outdoor Happy Hour which, alas, it was NOT.  Other than that we've been pretty danged reclusive this past week.  I wouldn't have gone out today if it were not for the fact we ran out o' lettuce and tomatoes this past Thursday and were at the bottom of the half-and-half.  And Reese's Minis, too.  Ergo, necessity.

I know I'm crazy a sick puppy; there's no doubt about that.  I've always been that way.  Be that as it may, we're always looking for those signs of incipient mental illness in ourselves (coz we ARE of a certain age) and being reclusive is one such.  On the other hand, it COULD be the fact it's been colder than a witch's mammary glands lately... so I'm gonna go with that.

Shorter:  I'm not crazy, I'm just a little unwell.

  1. There was a hermit that used to live up in the mountains around Red River. He did some mining to make a little money. He was also an alcoholic and came to town to buy groceries and beer. One winter his cabin burned down - with him in it. Apparently he had passed out and did not wake up.

    1. Sorry, Buck. Although I didn't think about it much, there was kind of a Freudian thang to that comment. But don't be a hermit.

  2. Unwell?
    I think not.
    Like me, you are of an age.
    If there is no reason to go out, we don't.

  3. WRONG vid, Buck. SHOULD have been "Flagpole Sitta" by Harvey Danger "I'm not sick, but I'm not well."

    (OR maybeee that's MY descriptive music vid, lol)

    1. I think you're right Virgil. That IS a better tune, except for the "hot" bits; I've been pretty cold of late. But you, in sunny SoCal, prolly ARE hot.
