9:48 a.m. - March 24, 2006
Unlike on Tuesday, when dance class was scheduled it was a minor crisis. Katie had a solution, as always. She told Liz to call Miss Deborah and tell everyone to get behind our car, since we could drive in the snow, and that way everyone could get to dance class.
Ah, well, a creative mind she has.
So that means that instead of regaling all of you with tales of the first ever soccer game, and how Smed acts as a sports parent, my mind wandered to other things.
Sometimes it just goes in odd places, like now. It also means I really got nothin’ right now. Well, I got a little somethin’ going on, but it’s still percolating.
And then I decided to finish a long simmering project that I’ve been toying with for a while, and well, unleash it on the masses. No time like the present to embarrass ones self, I guess, in a creative manner. So here goes:
Most everyone knows the song “50 Ways to Leave Your Lover”. Well, as you know that is incomplete, as Paul Simon listed only FIVE ways, and one of them is “You don’t need to be coy, Roy”, which is no action, really, at all. You can’t LEAVE your lover like that.
What you need to have are actions that either directly or indirectly would cause you and your lover to bolt, amscray, get gone, get thee hence.
So, why not, let’s fill them in.
I guess you can call this a preliminary list of 50 actual ways to leave your lover.
Gotta be vicious, Aloysius
Yes, it includes the actual four ways to leave your lover Mr. Simon, as we needed to use that as a base. However, I think the other 46 that I and others came up with work just as well.
Of course, if Paul put those in the song, then it’d be almost as long as “American Pie”, and would we really want that? Seriously.
