Tossing Salt Presents:
Annoying Songs, Changing Places & More
May 8, 2019
People ask questions and I have the answers, some of them anyways. These five lovely gems come from the ever so awesome Misty. She gets me. She really gets me. And now, let’s get this done. And away we go…
What is something that amazes you?
How some people manage to survive and get by in life. I see and interact with them at my job and it’s so obvious that the wheel might still be turning a bit, but the gerbil is dead! The easiest thing confuses and confounds these Mensa candidates like speaking, making a purchase, making a selection, reading a sign, etc and yet, they’re considered to be valuable members of society and actually drive and work and reproduce and all I can do is wonder, “How?”. Most people are okay so this isn’t a slam on everyone, but there are those few. Oh vey!
What song just really annoys you and why?
The Pina Colada Song, aka “Escape” by Rupert Holmes. And let me tell you why. In the song, the guy is tired of his wife and places an ad in the personal ads to cheat on his wife. He gets a reply and meets the woman and it’s his wife. They’re both cheating and they meet and they do what? They smile and laugh. Bull shit! He was trying to cheat on her and she was obviously trying to cheat on him and they laugh. No way! If I’m trying to cheat on my man with a stranger on Grindr and it turns out to be my man, I’m gonna be pissed and bust him in the eye. He’s freakin’ trying to do me wrong and cheat on me and that’s nothing to laugh about. And if I ever go on a date with a guy and he orders a Pina Colada, I’m gonna bust him in the face for that too, cause it means he’s a cheater and can’t be trusted. This song has totally screwed up my trust in others, especially if they drink Pina Coladas. Because of Rupert Holmes, I now see Pina Coladas, getting caught in the rain and not being into yoga as signs of a cheating sociopath. Plus the radio station we listen to at work plays this song at least twice a day, sometimes more. I hate this damn song!
If you could exchange places with anyone for 24 hours, who would it be and why?
Ted Turner because that would be just enough time for Ted (me) to set up a billion dollar trust fund for a favorite person of his (me). I’d be set for life lol.
Your favorite movie star will always be who?
This is an easy one. James Dean is and will always be “the man”… period!
Best peanut butter?
Choosy mothers choose JIF and picky people pick Peter Pan. I forget what the catch-phrase was for Skippy, but I never really liked it too much anyway. I guess all those people over the years who called me a “mother”, along with another word added for effect, were correct. I usually eat the cheap Food Lion store brand because it’s cheap and okay, but my definite favorite is JIF.
And there you go. My thanks to Misty for the questions. Now send me more. And if you have any comments, thoughts or questions of your own, about anything and everything, message me and let’s chat. Thanks again for reading and until the next time, take care. Have a great night.
