My Funny Bunny – Stream of Consciousness Saturday

 

Sometimes I have to pause while I am in the middle of being busy, doing things in the house. I hear some little paws and wonder what they are up to. I wonder if that bunny of mine is ok. 

So, I take a peak and see he is sitting comfortably in his cage. I go back to work in the house and set about my business. In a minute  I hear a bell ring. Then in a few seconds I hear that bell ring again. 

It is the bunny ringing his bell to get my attention. I got him this bell a year ago. I remembered that a bunny I had long ago used to ring a bell when he was ready to come inside from playing in the fenced in yard. 

So I got this bunny a bell. It was in the bird section of Pet Smart. I attached it to the top of the cage. He can reach it with his little nose and ring. He knows very well now, that I come when he rings. 

You might say that he has conditioned me similar to Pavlov’s dog….or is he the one who is conditioned? Actually I think we are both conditioned. He knows to ring the bell when he is hungry and I know to jump when he calls. 

But the funny thing is that sometimes I answer the ringing. put food in the cage, get him all settled, and then he rings. 

He is not ringing for food. He is not hurt. 

If I ignore this type of ring, he will get very frantic in his ringing, the longer I do not come. Until he is banging the bell with his little nose, back and forth. 

So what is he ringing for? 

When I get there, I open the cage. He sticks out his head and brushes against my hand. He tucks his little head into the palm of my hand and stays there. 

He is calling for love.

January 2 Pause / Paws Writing Challenge HERE

The above  writing is for the Stream of Consciousness Saturday challenge. You can see more information about this HERE at the Linda G. Gill blog

Here are the rules:

1. Your post must be stream of consciousness writing, meaning no editing, (typos can be fixed) and minimal planning on what you’re going to write.
2. Your post can be as long or as short as you want it to be. One sentence – one thousand words. Fact, fiction, poetry – it doesn’t matter. Just let the words carry you along until you’re ready to stop.
3. There will be a prompt every week. I will post the prompt here on my blog on Friday, along with a reminder for you to join in. The prompt will be one random thing, but it will not be a subject. For instance, I will not say “Write about dogs”; the prompt will be more like, “Make your first sentence a question,” “Begin with the word ‘The’,” or simply a single word to get your started.
4. Ping back! It’s important, so that I and other people can come and read your post! For example, in your post you can write “This post is part of SoCS:” and then copy and paste the URL found in your address bar at the top of this post into yours.  Your link will show up in my comments for everyone to see. The most recent pingbacks will be found at the top.
5. Read at least one other person’s blog who has linked back their post. Even better, read everyone’s! If you’re the first person to link back, you can check back later, or go to the previous week, by following my category, “Stream of Consciousness Saturday,” which you’ll find right below the “Like” button on my post.
6. Copy and paste the rules (if you’d like to) in your post. The more people who join in, the more new bloggers you’ll meet and the bigger your community will get!
7. As a suggestion, tag your post “SoCS” and/or “#SoCS” for more exposure and more views.
8. Have fun!

To End This Call Hang Up

Did you ever get into one of those automated tele-mazes ( yeah, I made that up) and after you finish doing whatever it is you are doing, they say….

“To end this call, Hang Up.”

Really??

I never would have thought of that. I just would have sat there all night, waiting for instructions on how to end the call.

Or sometimes I get..

“To end this call Hang Up..Or..push 2 to end the call.”

Does anybody actually push 2?

You know what would be really funny?  If you were on a live phone call with someone who you did not really want to talk to anymore, and you said…

“Thank you for calling.  To end this call , Hang Up…or Just Sit There if you want to, but I won’t be on the phone anymore. ”

For people that have People Pleaser Syndrome and have difficulty getting off the phone when a relative is being abusive to them, we could make a recording of this message.

They could just hold the recorder up to the phone and push Play.

Pizza and Honey

Annie’s been sick in her bed
And a little bit too in her head
She fed pizza to Bunny
Then her kids carrots and honey
I think that’s enough to be said

Don’t Let Annie Write Limericks

There was a young woman from Druck
Who really loved only to suck
She sucked on big lollies
That gave her the jollies
And woke up with her hair all stuck

True to Life Math Humor – Funny Conversation

Here is a funny story that I just heard from my daughter. 

This was a conversation between 2 of the guys she goes to church with.  The first guy is 20 years old and the second one is 40 years old. 

Guy number one – “Wow, I am 2o and you are 40 !

Guy number two So?

Guy number one That means I am half your age

Guy number two Yeah

Guy number one –  That means that when I am 50 years old, you will be 100 !

Guy number two  ?

Ray Stevens and His Very Funny Songs…Guaranteed to Make You Smile

Ray Steven was one of the best writer of funny songs ever! You probably remember The Streak song and I will give you that link at the end.

I wanted to share a few other songs with you by Ray Stevens that you may not have heard. The one I will link for you is “It’s Me Margaret” . This song is very twisted but it is funny the way he does it.

This next one is “The Mississippi Squirrel Revival”  This song is so funny. A squirrel gets into the church and begins running up the skirts of the ladies during the church service. The results of this squirrel running up and down the legs of the ladies is worth a listen…

This next one is “Jeremiah Peabody’s Poly Unsaturated Quick Dissolving Fast Acting Pleasant Tasting Green and Purple Pills”

This song is presented like a commercial for a con artist Wonder Drug ! It Cures Everything from the sniffle to the blues to being overweight and having arthritis….even Water on the Knee !

Take the Wonder Drug that Cures all Your Ills! Take the Jeremiah Peabody’s, Poly Unsaturated, Fast Acting, Quick Dissolving, Pleasant Tasting, Green and Purple Pill !

And now that you have taken that Green and Purple Pill…

Yes…It is finally time…drum roll please….This one is guaranteed to make you smile….or your money back !

The Steak !

When I was a kid of about 6 years old. there was a rash of streaking in Baltimore. Every night on the news there was another incident of a streaker.

This was the time that I learned the word Streaker. I had to ask my Dad because they were talking about all these streakers on the news.

This song came out, right about this time I remember listening to this song with my father, when it came on the car radio. He thought it was so funny…

There is a line in the song that goes like this.

“Oh yes they call him the Streak….He likes to Turn the Other Cheek !”

That was one of our favorite lines in the song..My father and I used to laugh so hard at that line! He likes to turn the other cheek. Haha !  LOL

The end of the song is so funny…Ethel who at first seems to be shocked at the streaker…ends up taking off her own clothes,..much to the husband’s dismay, who is running after her yelling …Ethel ! Get Your Clothes ON !

Top 10 Ten List Random Thoughts

Random morning musings

1. People  can read lists, even when they are having  anxiety  and are rushing through  their busy day.

2. Reading  lists helps the brain to become more organized

3. Writing  lists helps the brain  to become  more organized.

4. See I mean say to organize the yes brain It is working very so much

5. Just kidding.

6. Did you worry about my brain or think my cell phone was acting up?

7. The brain needs to be active in order to keep working  well.

8. Learning new things keeps the brain active.

9. Learning things can be reading  about something,  learning a new game,  a craft, a new yoga posture….a new  love position. ….mmmm..

10. Just trying  to make you smile a little and see if you are paying attention. If I had someone to practice  love positions with, then I would not be talking to you guys right now….no offense ….sigh..

If you do have someone next to you in the bed that is sweet ..go cuddle and stop reading  my goofy post..

11. You might already know but I have issues sticking within the parameters  of a top ten list.

12. No….really…I just cannot stop talking…

15. And freeeeeeee  to go beyond 10…weeee…womp…womba woo

16. I am feeling a bit better today

17. Perhaps  this depression  that has been sucking me into a pit of darkness  lately, is beginning  to lift

18. I could  not have written  a funny post last week or the week before. ..or a few days ago

19. This is hopefully  a good sign

20. Talkativeness is usually a sign of depression  lifting for me

21. So is the feeling of wanting  to challenge  things, like ethical things at work.

22. But then….sometimes  doing the right thing gets me into trouble

23. I end up annoying  the ” normals” who want me to stay in my place….and not to incorporate  creative, innovative  thinking  into my work

24. Probably  good I am off today…

25. I need to be working  for myself  so I will be free to think outside the bix

26. And go outside the parameters  of top ten lists….so to speak…

Is There Still Magic in Your WorldI

???????????????????????????????????????

I need magic! I love magical moments and magical ideas. To me life is very boring without some kind of magical sparks here and there to spice it up. Here are some things that I consider magical.

1. Balloons I love balloons! I love the way they float in the air. I love the way they have a mind of their own and they will go whichever direction they feel like going, in spite of where you tell them to go!

I love the way the alzheimer’s patients eyes light up when I get the balloon out. They all smile and have so much fun just playing and batting the balloon back and forth in the air, with me. It is one of my favorite things to do at work.

In fact I am the one that usually stops at CVS pharmacy  to get balloons when we run out. No matter how bad my anxiety may be before I get to work, the magical powers of the balloon can make it better. I can almost feel my blood pressure lowering, from the first time one of the residents smiles and holds out their hands to catch it.

I love the way little children are entranced by the balloon and how it floats and flies in the air. They love the way it feels when they touch it. To really amaze my little niece,  I can rub in against my hair and make it stick to the wall.

2. Creative CollaborationCollaborating on a creative, inspiring project can have a magic all it’s own. I have a very good friend that like to collaborate with me on business projects like redesigning his web site or coming up with new slogans.

The two of us work together in a perfect harmony and once the inspiration begins, we bounce ideas back and forth off of each other. It is .almost like a dance, where one of us takes the lead and then the other one steps together and the two creative minds do things that neither one of us could do alone. That is magical and fun.

3. Random Dancing –  My friend Hanorah, is a very old woman that lives in the assisted living where I work. When she sees me in the hallway, she always puts her hands out and says “Time to Dance!” It does not matter who is around or what part of the building we are in.

Once we even danced in the elevator, on the way up to her floor. She just takes my hands and begins to dance to the music in her head. Then I will sing something for her, like “Five Foot Two, Eyes of Blue” and she sings along with me. She always loves to see me, because I will dance with her, just because.

4. BunnyMy bunny is magical, as most bunnies are! He hops and plays. He even hops into the air and makes a turn right in the air, to change direction and to be silly. He kisses me on the lips and he dances a special love dance around my feet, which is like a figure eight, going around one foot and then the other.

When he wants my attention, he will get it. If I am typing on this laptop, for my blog and he feels left out, he will jump right up and land his bunny butt right on this keyboard that I am typing on now. He just sits there, with his fuzzy butt in my face, and won’t move. So funny!

Once he took my cell phone away from me. I was talking on the phone, to my boyfriend and the bunny hopped over, took the cell phone with his teeth, and pulled it right out of my hand. He tossed it on the bed and then hopped away. So funny! Bunny is magical because he can make me smile no matter what my mental state it. He can always get a little smile from me, because he is so animated like a cartoon.

5. Bubbles Bubbles are magnificent as they are blown in the sunlight outside. They float way up in the air and catch all the colors of a rainbow as the sun reflects off of them. Bubble are fun indoors too. I have a bubble necklace (you can get them around valentines day ) that I can wear and when the alzheimer’s residents are least expecting it, I blow some bubbles into the air and they love it !

I also just like sitting outside and blowing the bubbles to see how they float. It is relaxing and magical.

6. Spending the entire day on the phone with a very special friend –  which is what happened today. My best friend, who is usually too busy working to be on the phone with me for more than 30 minutes at time, during the daytime, was off today! He stayed home sick in bed and I am sorry about him being sick. But he has been getting better throughout the day, as we have been on the phone.

He kept me on the phone for company all day, from 11 am this morning and he is still with me, but I hear him sleeping now. It is 10pm. He fell asleep a few times on and off and I just kept doing what I was doing and stayed with him, so that I would be there when he woke up, for comfort.

I went out to the store and back, and did some other errands, but we stayed on the phone together anyway. I just brought him with me. It was nice to be needed for comfort and I loves having the company all day. Too bad he only does that when he is sick. But I am thankful for the wonderful day together.

7. Blogging Blogging is magical in many ways but there is one that is most significant to me. You get to meet and connect with people in a deep and meaningful way. These are people that you would otherwise never have met, because they live so far away from you.

8. The Floating Lanterns in The Picture on the Top of This Post These lantern are beautiful and they look like they should have some magical element to them, to me.

9. The Laughter of Children – The sound of children laughing naturally, because they are children! It is a wonderful sound.

10. Dr. Seuss Dr. Seuss stories and all the creative nonsensical characters are magical. I love their funny hair and the funny creatures. His stories like The Cat in the Hat. Green Eggs and Ham, Horton Hears a Who and The Lorax are very special and I have never gotten to old for them. (but on the other hand…you are taking advice from someone who still plays with balloons and bubbles LOL )

Let’s have some fun, since I feel in a good mood today, because I felt supported all day, by my friend. You all can put the things that are magical to you, in the comments below and that way we can all learn about each other.

I did leave out my favorite magical thing in the world to do…but I was trying to keep this a post G rated!  LOL!

Ok, so what are Your Magical items, Activities, and Magical Moments? You can think back into your past, if you want to. I did that for this post also.

Blessings,

Annie
