He might be from Singapore

Audio (MP3): 20180905 - He might be from Singapore

Guys, don’t go south on Randall Road anywhere near Route 64 in St. Charles. It’s been raining, there’s bumper-to-bumper traffic, and your life will be put on hold.

There’s also a weird cat sitting on the east sidewalk looking at me. I think he might be from Singapore. Or Elburn.

Worst still, the 7-Eleven hung up a handmade “NO LOITERING” sign. It’s in bubble letters, too. I hate bubble lettering. 😢

Probably elburn. The cats there are very shady.

Is the kitty ok?

tcr! tcr! · Sep 5, 2018 at 5:29 pm

It was a white cat with black patches and the patches look like dents in his hide from a rough, battle scarred life. I assume he ate all the Bigfoots in his 20s, after he got out of the Cat Marines or wherever they serve.

I guess him to be in his 60s now but I still wouldn’t tangle with him. There was an open can of Hormel Chili beside him and since I didn’t see a can opener around, he must’ve opened it with his teeth. Maybe his claws, too. For leverage.

tamaraholby · Sep 5, 2018 at 5:47 pm

I was born and raised in the birthplace of Hormel. That chili and a can of spam will last forever. Oh and a twinkie

The 7/11 on Randall and 64? Who loiterers at a intersection with no foot traffic? You are right. Stay. Away.

tcr! tcr! · Sep 5, 2018 at 5:10 pm

Oh. I’m sorry. In my haste I forgot to mention the 7-Eleven with the sign is on 64 and 17th, a few blocks east. But the one on 64 and Randall probably has a similar policy. Loiter at your own risk!

tcr! tcr! · Sep 5, 2018 at 5:37 pm

Traffic makes me sadder and also angrier than anything else. Well, I can get pretty angry at the Target/Starbucks people who don’t know how to grind beans for a French Press. I get home and open the bag expecting to see coarsely ground beans and instead see a floury brown powder.

THIS IS NOT A GAME.

So what’s really funny is that I was banned a while back from the “What’s Happening in Geneva” Facebook group for posting similar anecdotes. I was also banned from WH in St. Charles, WH in Batavia, etc. etc.

I’m glad I have a blog because you all deserve to know the real stories.

hodges · Sep 5, 2018 at 5:39 pm

My badge of honor. Banned from Trump Facebook. Oh well. Left what’s happening in st Charles on the basis of meanness and belittling.

You were banned because your magazine was perceived by Kevin Ketchum to be competition for his local magazines. That’s my guess anyway.

Yeah, I wanted to leave my magazine out of the story and keep the focus on my personal wit and charm.

Me: It annoys me that I have to trim my nails weekly yet I have to live with the same teeth for more than most of my life.

Me: Why can’t I have replacement teeth every few years and just skip the other nonsense?

Maggie: I see you’ve thought about this.

Me: Yep. It’s the molehills that kill us.

Do you think the new teeth should push the old ones out or you should be able to clip them off, or that you should be able to pull them and then wait for new teeth to come in???

Hater McGhray Hater McGhray · Sep 4, 2018 at 9:16 pm

I would also like to know the answer to this.

tcr! tcr! · Sep 4, 2018 at 9:21 pm

Since the systems are already in place, they can come in like the others did. No need to reinvent the wheel. Or the tooth.

keamoose keamoose · Sep 5, 2018 at 3:41 pm

What if they just kept growing and you had to gnaw on wood to keep them worn down? And also you lived in a lodge made of branches and mud in a lake that you created by building a dam and when you sensed danger you slapped the water with your tail and dove to safety? 🤔

tcr! tcr! · Sep 5, 2018 at 5:12 pm

Would the lodge be close to Louisville, Kentucky?

keamoose keamoose · Sep 5, 2018 at 5:17 pm

It’s your dam lodge, you flood whatever town you want!

tcr! tcr! · Sep 6, 2018 at 8:55 am

I have a vague memory of building a dam of twigs in the drainage ditch behind my dad’s house. I was 11 and not a structural engineer mind you and completely underestimated the force of the current that day.

It should go without saying but I’ll say it anyway. The damn didn’t hold, the twigs and pebbles washed downstream, and I was left with a broken heart. 😢

No lives were lost.

A great tragedy of our times, indeed. Maybe reconsider the whole beaver lifestyle.

I wish this badge was because of my keen attention to John Cougar Mellencamp’s lyrics but I didn’t post that in the What’s Really Happening FB group.

It would’ve gotten me banned like I did from the other ones. 🏆

Crosswalk of Certain Doom

Audio (MP3): 20180904 - Crosswalk of Certain Doom

Crosswalk of Certain Doom

The scene, of course, is my truck as I’m headed to work.

Driving along Riverside Avenue and following a Toyota Corolla. The speed limit is 35 mph and we’re both sailing along about 40. There’s maybe two or three car lengths between us.

Other cars are around but they’re only slightly involved.

But isn’t it the law that drivers have to stop at those crosswalks for pedestrians or bikers?

gentile · Sep 4, 2018 at 1:24 pm

I’m sure it is, but at the same time, the point is that if you’re going to stop, don’t make it a split second decision. Like slamming on your brakes in front of a semi, you won’t win every time.

tcr! tcr! · Sep 4, 2018 at 3:01 pm

I might be misinterpreting it but it sounds like only when they’re in the crosswalk.

A STOP sign is posted on the east and west side of the bike path that crosses Rt 25. That would indicate to me whoever is using the bike path is to stop for oncoming traffic.
Illinois law states you are to stop for someone in the crosswalk. Very confusing!

I’ll admit to a short attention span, but that was similar to a short novel in social media terms, don’t you agree?

Do you ever find yourself staring at somebody’s eyebrows?

I hope not because then you would be a freak like Mellencamp.

In semi-related news I just saw three dudes picking out sheets at Target. I’d like to know how that lovestory ends.
