Monday Meanders 8-16

This is mid-August. By now, the grass is SUPPOSED to be brown and crunchy. Not wavy and emerald green. WHERE is the complaint department?

That WAS a complaint, wasn't it? Oh, well.

I hope that there's a parallel universe where all backyards are concrete. Green concrete. And I hope my alter ego, living in that universe, has a nice, large, concrete yard that he never has to mow.

Speaking of parallel universes - if the science types are right, there's a universe out there, somewhere, where I won 47 million dollars in the lottery. What I'd like to know is why I'm living in THIS one and not THAT one.

I got a haircut yesterday. Rather, as in the old joke, I got 'em ALL cut. Yep. BALD. Now I look like my avatar again. Interesting thing, about the experience ... I usually get my haircuts at a "Hair Cuttery" which, although they proclaim a unisex atmosphere, they're really more of a female's type of establishment. But "Sports Clips" is aimed directly at the hormone laden heart of every young 30ish young man out there. And the best thing? The warm towel over my face as I got a neck and shoulder massage. Yeah, I like it there. And the girls doing the cuts aren't bad looking either. Do you suppose that's on purpose?

TOTALLY on purpose. Although I've never been. I have a Colombian lady who has been cutting my hair for 6 years. I'm a creature of habit I guess...

You should live in Atlanta. The grass is turning brown here. And in that parallel universe, you've won the lottery and have a lawn service. Meanwhile, I'm a supermodel/rock star/astrophysicist with a Nobel prize I wear as a belt buckle.

Are you sure you're not really living in your alternative universe? I mean, think about it. Hot hair dressers, green grass in August. I'm just saying.

would you shovel your backyard in the winter instead?

Our yard this year is more crab grass and prickly's. not so great for walking out barefoot.

That parallel universe, where the lawns are green concrete? Santa Rosa, Trinidad.
