se·ba·ceous (s-bshs) adj. – Containing an unusual amount of grease or oil.
I mentioned taking-in Actor of Valor yesterday but forgot to add my observation of the couple right in front of me . It wasn’t that the guy was wearing a cowboy hat or using his cell during the movie and his spouse didn’t have a Marge Simpson copycat coif to block the view but she did put a burr in my saddle by her choice of the pseudo-nutrition snack she wished to devour while watching the show.
Like most modern venues, the Cinemark Theater – right down the road – offers a variety of goodies to satisfy any palate but the days of popcorn, Milk Duds and Ju Ju Beads are well behind us unfortunately. Now, a full menu of over-priced snacks are on tap but, I digress.
To make a short story longer, just as the main feature began, the Mrs. returned with a drink and order of fries. Please! I like fries as much as the next guy but for some reason the aroma of grease-soaked spuds at that particular moment didn’t sit well. It was all I could do to keep from losing my two-hard-boiled-egg breakfast right there. I know. Just move you say. But I had the perfect seat say I. It was dead smack in the middle and the movie had begun. Why should I be the one to uproot and seek a more pleasing odoriferous pasture? I refused. So sit there I did, hoping for a change in the flight pattern of the offending molecules or the need to quell a voracious appetite of the Mrs. by gobbling up every last morsel without taking time to chew. Whichever it was, my wishes were fulfilled in short order and I was able to enjoy the flick without further bother.
Please excuse the triviality of this post. I had the urge to communicate my annoyance. Have a great day.
Then there was this:
I remember her well. The player/caddie softball games were quite a treat when she was on the mound.
Joan also had a predilection of being a tad errant off the tee and I recall Rick, her caddie at the time, charting yardages to the green from places far and wide. He new her tendencies and was prepared for any situation. Sometimes you have to put in the extra mile.
