Tossing Salt Presents:
A Day Of Dougie
People, White Knight, Howard The Duck & More
August 4, 2021
Recently, I added almost four hundred new topics to the infamous “Magic Bag”. And what does that mean? I have over 1300 topics to choose from when I decide to reach into the bag and write a “Day of Dougie” blog. Yeah, we should be doing this for many years to come. Normally, I pick three topics, at random, from the bag and that’s what I write about. It’s a tried and true process and it works to help stimulate me creatively and at the same time, provide some reading entertainment for you. At least that’s the plan. I never know what the topic will be in advance and thus have no time to prepare. It’s all totally off the cuff and that means that the simplest topic of discussion is liable to go anywhere. That’s the fun part.
So what was I saying? Many new topics in the bag and rather than the usual three, we’re going rapid-fire today. I draw out a topic, write the first thing that comes to mind, and then move on to the next one. This could be fun or it could be a disaster. There’s only one way to find out so… let’s do this. And away we go.
People: Some are good and some are bad, but in general, I like most of them. Just don’t tell them that though. I do have a reputation as an asshole to maintain.
Survey: I did one last night. Well, it wasn’t a real survey so much as twenty-five random questions about random things, but it counts in my eyes. Go read it and let me know what you think.
San Diego Chicken: I remember the chicken, but I can’t remember what actual team that this infamous mascot represents. I just know it was in San Diego. I’m sure he’s not there anymore and has probably been fired for appropriating the culture of barnyard fowl. Either that or he’s working his new job, fighting Peter on Family Guy. Who knows?
Howard The Duck: Another feathered fowl. Arguably one of the greatest bad movies ever made. Yeah, it sucks so badly, it’s awesome. I like it anyhow.
White Knight: The good guy who saves the day. We all need a white knight in our life. Unfortunately, I think mine got ran over by a bus and I endure alone. Oh well, life goes on.
He-Man Woman Hater’s Club: Spanky, Alfalfa, Buckwheat, Froggy, and the rest of the Little Rascals had this as their official boy’s club. They don’t like the girls… until Alfalfa fell in love with Darla. And then all bets were off.
Walk Of Life: It’s what we do every day as we continue to move forward and keep going to live and see another day.
Broken: My spirit, my soul, my heart, my mind, and especially my body. Yeah, it’s not a good day right now.
Projects: It’s what we do, apart from the normal routine, to make our mark in this world. This site, it’s a project of mine. No, it’s more than that. It’s my release and my little dose of light in a dark mood and world.
Hot Blooded: A great song by Foreigner. I think those guys liked to have sex with the groupies. They even wrote a song about it.
House Hunters: A great show on HGTV where families go in search of a home to buy and invest in, sometimes domestic and sometimes in other lands. We see the ins and out of real estate and the stress of buying a new home and hopefully a happy ending at the end of the show.
Under The Bridge: Another great song, this one by the Red Hot Chili Peppers, is about heroin addiction of all things. I’ve never used heroin, but the parts about being alone and feeling lost and never wanting t be that way again, I can definitely relate.
Walking In The Woods: A great way to relax, enjoy the splendor of nature, observe animals and plants in their own environment, and be one with the plants, trees, and life. I did it often as a kid and wish I could still do it now.
Cry: If there’s a tear on my face, it makes me shiver to the bone. I never cry. At least not on the outside.
And there you go. I need to end this now because I have to go to work. Also because the other person who lives here in this house with me is awake and making all sorts of noise and getting on my last nerve really quickly. So that’s all for today.
Thank you for reading. Thoughts, questions, comments, and anything else is welcome and appreciated. Until the next time, take care of yourself and be safe. I’ll see you on the flip side.
