I fell this evening… and to be honest, even typing this is causing severe discomfort. BIG bruises and a lot of pain – and, of course, my right arm and hand got the worst of it (as I tried to catch myself). So while the automatic reaching out with my good arm may have saved my head and face, it means everything I normally do during the evening is now causing more pain than it’s worth.
Okay. That’s it. This hurts too much. Will give details when it’s not so painful. LOL
There are some people who doubt it’s existence… but I believe today’s photo of the day will prove that it is alive and well here in the heart of the prairies. Prairie machismo is that force that fuels everything that some men do. The force that compels them to be “bigger than”, “stronger than”, “tougher than” the next guy. It is the force that inspires jokes about rednecks on the prairie. It goes beyond testosterone driven displays well into the range of blatant stupidity. It is the crushing of beer cans on the forehead while pouring gasoline on the bbq and wearing nothing but green and white body paint stupidity… It is, as this man has done, wearing shorts and a tank top when it is five degrees celcius out.
So kudos oh great and mighty prairie man. For proving, once again, that “real” men are all about scaring little children by displaying way too much flesh.
Seriously though? Come on guy… cover up. It’s cold out there. You don’t look tough, you look silly. Everyone else is out with long pants, jackets, hats, and mittens…. dressing like it’s still Summer is just plain goofy.
Okay… I know it’s A photo a day (A as in ONE)… but I didn’t know which one to share. So here’s three. All of the exact same leaf, the exact same berries. A little touch of Autumn for you.
I’ve been indecisive lately… a little more so than usual. And today’s blog post is a perfect example of that. Seriously. I took three pictures, and couldn’t decide on one, so shared them all. LOL So which is your favourite? I couldn’t pick one. At least not today. LOL
