Hump day has arrived. That is what we called it in my working days. Tomorrow is p**p (S.H.I.T.) day and so forth. I learned all kinds of things when I worked for the military. Like how to use an occasional cuss word in Spanish when something didn’t go right. One of my bosses was from Texas. She spoke fluent Spanish and when she was irritated she would go into a tirade in that language.
A long, angry speech of criticism or accusation: "a tirade of abuse".
It wasn’t long before I learned some phrases to use when I was aggravated. I still remember them all, I just won’t mention them here. SGT. A was one of the best bosses I have ever had. She was honest and didn’t beat around the bush when she wanted to get a point across. Some of my bosses at the AFB could only be described as horse’s patooties.
patootiesplural of pa·too·tie (Noun)
- A girlfriend or a pretty girl.
- derogatory. A person's or animal's buttocks.
But that is all in the past. Today, in the present, I was at the hospital at 6:30 AM for lab work. My daughter was with me. We went to Steak ‘n ‘ Shake for breakfast, and now I am home for the day.
Mid to upper 90s predicted for the rest of this week and next with no rain in sight. Our governor has declared Illinois a drought disaster state. He toured some of the counties in southeastern Il a couple of days ago. He opened an ear of corn and there were no kernels. This is bad folks. Illinois is right in the center of the corn belt. Think of all of the things made from corn. We will pay for this next year.
Try to stay cool and thank God that you are here to complain about the heat.
Stay safe and be happy!!
