Tossing Salt Presents:
A Day Of Dougie
Frosty, Justice In America & Think Twice
March 23, 2020
Good afternoon and welcome to a very special edition of the award-winning, never imitated, self-therapeutic, rock & roll forever Day of Dougie blog. I’m Dougie and do you want to know why this is a very special edition of the Day of Dougie series? Because we’re surviving the Coronavirus. Because I got my boot! And because you’re special America. I love you, my Peeps!
And also since I actually have a few minutes of free time to spare before I have to head to work. Liquor stores are essential. Did you know that? I get it though. If you’re going to be stuck in a house on self-isolation with a spouse and kids and don’t have a few bottles of booze to help you get through, someone is most likely liable to end up dead or divorced. A good bottle of fine spirits. Don’t STAY HOME without it. We’re open until 8:00 pm. And now you know.
So what’s the agenda for today’s piece? I could talk about my nearly $1800.00 “crow boot” that I picked up today in Pinehurst. It’s custom made, ugly as hell and looks like a Frankenstein boot. But it’s also comfortable, helps keep my foot secure from moving around and hurting and will prevent it from getting any worse (or so they say). It’s going to take some getting used to, but it’s what I have to do if I want to walk and get around in a relatively pain-free manner. Luckily, I don’t have any fashion sense so just because it’s bulky and ugly doesn’t really matter all that much to me. I also can’t drive with it on, but that’s only a minor problem since I can just take it off when I drive and then put it back on when I’m getting out of the truck so I’m good with that. Annoying yes, but still manageable. I’m sure that I’ll end up bitching about this thing quite a bit in the months to come so I’ll find other topics for discussion. Where is the Magic Bag at?
I found it waiting on my desk to be remembered and used once more. Let’s find some topics. And today, we are talking about Frosty the Snowman, Justice In America and Think Twice. Are you ready? Let’s do this…
Frosty The Snowman…
He was a man who was made out of snow. He wore a magic hat on his head, loved kids and said the words “Happy Birthday” a lot. And we watch the cartoon about him every year. I think he even got married at one point to Mrs. Frosty, but I can’t remember for sure. He’s an iconic figure in American culture and it’s all because of some worrisome little placing a hat that didn’t even belong to them on the head of a snowman that they made to replace the lack of parenting and guidance in their lives. If that little girl who got sick had good parents, would she be running around in the streets with a strange snowman? Think about it. Actually, I’m kidding here. I liked Frosty and he was, for an obviously possessed by a demon snow creature, not a bad dude. He was cool and dare I say it, chilling. He wasn’t as cool as Ernie, the Elf who wanted to be a dentist or the Abominable Snowman who could put a star on top of the Christmas tree, but he was a good egg regardless. Let’s move on.
Justice In America…
It doesn’t exist. When it comes to our courts and legal system, justice is a farce, consisting of smoke and mirrors and a pony show, but no actual intention to help the victims or protect the innocent. The trial I was forced to testify in a few years ago cemented that to me and based my observations up to that point, I was already suspect. There are good people with good intentions in our legal system and thank God for these people, but they’re few and far between and it seems that there are less and less each and every day. Criminals have more rights than victims and if you’re not wealthy or connected and actually do get charged, you’re going down and down hard. It’s all who you know and how you play the system. Nothing more and nothing left. And real and true justice. It died years ago.
When I hear those words, I think of this song. It was featured on the Bad Grampa movie by Johnny Knoxville, but I found it many years ago on Limewire. Remember that? It’s Jackie Wilson and Lavern Baker. Here’s the video. You’re welcome.
And with that, I’m done here. Work beckons and I have to finish getting ready, plus practice walking around in my new Frankenstein boot. My thanks for reading. Any comments, thoughts or questions, drop me line here at the site, at my e-mail of Doug28352@yahoo.com or on Twitter at @Doug28352. Follow me and I’ll follow back.
Until the next time, stay safe and look out for yourself and each other. Enjoy life, laugh at the dirty jokes, watch lots of wrestling and remember that today and every day is always a Day of Dougie. Take care.
