Sunday Scribblings # 167: Absurd.

Me, blue hat.
Sulli, undecided :0-)

Absurd.

ab·surd (ab sʉrd′, -zʉrd′; əb-)
adjective
so clearly untrue or unreasonable as to be laughable or ridiculous
Etymology: Fr absurde , absurdus, not to be heard of intens. + surdus, dull, deaf, insensible

i.e

  • Fighting, crying, not eating, stressing, missing, pouting, pretending you're all right when you're clearly not: All because the one you want to be with, has doubts if it will work out between you.
  • Eating a Banana with a fork.

  • Celebrities being the youth's role models. If you need to 'follow' some body, why not try Jesus, Mohamed, The Dalai Lama, Moses...
  • Clothes made out of latex (when you're not a stripper, if you are, then perhaps buying a box of condoms, a needle and a thread, will save you $$$?)
  • ''O'' calories soft drinks. They are still loaded with aspartame, havoc on your health & they are STILL making you fat.

  • Diet Pills, male 'enlargement' pills, creams to make your breasts bigger...

  • Special treatment for athletes (in schools). I never understood what entitled them to a private computer lab...

I'm a sucker for, in local parlance, anything I could "tie up on meh hand". I think that in the store Suli's in, I'd go crazy with all those trinkets and bracelets.

I dig your list:] And I can't say I ever saw anyone eating a banana with a fork.

Enchantress said...

Great post...from eating bananas with a fork (I had to LOL at that) to privileged athletes.

AD said...
