A Day of Dougie:
The Masked Singer, Classic Cars & Ultimatums
February 7, 2022
It’s a cold, yet beautiful day outside. Hopefully, in just a little while, I’ll be experiencing the cold, crisp air and the warmth of the sun on my face. For the first time in seven days and only the second time in just over three months that I’m getting out of the house without a doctor being involved. Yeah, I’ve totally embraced the solitary, hermit lifestyle. It’s not by choice mind you, and I feel more like a prisoner in a German POW camp in World War II than myself most of the time, but every so often, there’s a slight break in the darkness and I get a moment to relax. Even if it is just for a few hours, every little bit helps and I definitely need all the help I can get.
But now is not the time to discuss the hard times, if you will, that I endure each day. Now is the time to get a little bit more random and find some crazy things to talk about. Did I say crazy? Maybe just different is a better term. Let’s get right to it, shall we? Let’s find the Magic Bag and determine what the topics for discussion will be today. We have The Masked Singer, Classic Cars, and Ultimatums. I think I can work with this so let’s get ready, okay? Hey hey hey! Let’s do this.
Quite Note: I wrote the intro yesterday. And then I went and watched the show Riverdale for several hours. My bad! So we finishing up today. Are you ready? We rejoin this column already in progress.
The Masked Singer…
This is a show I’ve heard about, but have yet to watch. I’ve seen a couple of clips on YouTube, but have no interest in pursuing it any further. A person comes out, wearing a costume that hides their identity, sings, and the celebrity judges try to guess who it is. It’s an interesting concept, but according to recent news about the judges, they’re a bunch of snowflake weenies. I know you’ve seen the news. A masked person sang and when he pulled his mask off, was revealed to be former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, Judges Robin Thicke and Ken Jeong got up and walked off the stage. So a plagiarist and guy whose only talent is throwing up on demand are offended by the man once known as America’s Mayor? That’s rich. That’s also so very unprofessional and childish, it’s not even funny. Of course, I’ve yet to ever see anything with Ken Jeong that is funny so at least he’s consistent. And Robin Thicke? I’m sure his father is so proud! Steals songs, grinds with Miley on National TV, and now can’t even be a judge in a musical competition. Unprofessional as well as untalented. Welcome to America. These two clowns need to be fired for being stupid idiots, but this is the world we live in and they’ve shown their true colors, yellow. Screw ’em both! Let’s move on.
Older cars are cool. They have style and personality, something that is clearly lacking in today’s cookie-cutter world where all the cars look alike, last five years at the most, and cost more than an average house. Give me the oldies anytime. And as for the best, I’ve owned in my lifetime, a 1968 Chevy Nova SS, a 1971 Volkswagen Beetle, a 1972 Volkswagen Beetle, a couple of station wagons, a few pick-ups, and one or two other cars. Those first three though, had style, class, and personality. They were classics and they absolutely rocked! Let’s move on and wrap this baby up.
I don’t do them. If someone tells me that I absolutely have to do something or else, my mind instantly goes into rebellion mode, and my body tenses up and my mouth says, with a great big smile, “Fuck you!”.
Even if I initially agree with the person about doing whatever it is, I don’t like being bossed around and told that I have to do this or that or else. Ask nicely and I’ll think about it. Tell me that I will and I most definitely won’t. And if you try to make me, things will not turn out nicely and that’s not a prediction, but instead a spoiler. It’s a total fact. So the bottom line for ultimatums is… don’t do that!
And there you go. My thanks for reading. Comments, thoughts, and any questions you may have about absolutely anything are welcome and appreciated. Until the next time, take care and be good. I’ll see you at supper.
