Looking Back: Parental Edition

A few days ago, a few different people on Facebook shared the same image. It was this image here:

It’s definitely a chuckle worthy picture, but it brings up a good point. You view things differently as an adult than you did as a kid, especially if you’re a parent.

I saw a similar post to the one above a while ago about The Little Mermaid. I tried to find it, but couldn’t so I’ll tell you about it. It basically said that girls used to think that Ariel’s dad was an ass for trying to stop her from being with the prince. Looking back on it now, however, they realized that she was a 16 year old girl who was claiming to be in love with a grown man who she’d never met. Seriously, what father wouldn’t react the way he did when confronted with that?

Bathroom Poetry

A while back, some of my more immature coworkers decided to start writing/drawing on the wall above the urinal in one of the bathrooms. Some of them were easily identified as the work of the high school kids that (thankfully) no longer work there, such as the numerous depictions of penises. There were a few other different ones, like the written hope that the person standing there will, “Have a good pee!” Most of these have been covered up not long after they’re put up.

There is one thing, however, that keeps getting put back up whenever it gets painted over and it’s a poem that someone scrawled on the wall. Now, I’ll admit that I chuckled after reading it the first time, but the rest of the guys who work there go on like this poem is the best thing ever. I’ve heard more than one of them recite it from memory in the break room. Personally, I don’t think it’s as good as they’re making it out to be, but I’ll let you all decide for yourselves.

The day was bright

The sky was blue

Down the alley

The shitwagon flew

A bump was hit

A cry was heard

A lady was hit

With a flying turd

My very first blog!!!

My beautiful wife has started her own blog. Head on over and check it out!

The Life and Thoughts of Mrs. Revis

Hey, my name is Mrs. Revis, I am a wife to the most amazing man of 12 years(married 12, together for 19ish years, I tell people I had to make sure he was the right one, Lol) he is known as Revis Edgewater as he too blogs, I am a mother to two crazy, sassy, beautiful girls, one of which we just adopted, they will be known as Baby E who just turned 9 and Baby J who is 13. I also work in clinical triage for the orthopedic department of the hospital I work for.

A Pattern

I was recently looking through all of my most recent blog posts and I noticed something. The majority of them are my fiction writing, with a few of my random thoughts thrown in. I think I’ve also done one or two reviews of a book/movie/TV show, but not many. Most of it has been my fiction writing. Almost none of it has been about my life.

When I first started on this blogging adventure, I would regularly post tidbits from my life. Generally, it would be about something that happened at work or something that Baby E had done. Over the course of my time here on WordPress, I gradually posted them less and less. I’m not entirely sure why.

I think part of it is that I don’t really live a very eventful life. Outside of a big thing from time to time, my days are pretty much the same. Work, housework, family time, and sleep.

Lather. Rinse. Repeat.

I’m not sure what the rest of it is, but I’m going to make an effort to post more non-fiction things than I have been lately.

Another Anniversary

Here we are again. It’s another day that I was greeted with a WordPress notification. This notification, to be exact.

Eleven years. It’s been 11 years and 973 posts later I’m still here. Maybe not as much as I was when I first started on this blogging adventure, but I am still around.

Have a Good One

In one of George Carlin’s stand up specials, he does a bit about the different ways we can say hello or goodbye, such as Aloha. “They say that in Hawaii, of course, and that means both hello and goodbye, which just goes to show you that if you spend enough time in the sun, you don’t know whether you’re coming or going.”

He goes on to list off a bunch of different words and phrases that people use as greetings or valedictions. One of the phrases he talks about as a valediction is “Have a good one”. He then goes on to say that his response to that phrase is, “I already have a good one. Now I’m looking for a longer one.”

I never really used the phrase “Have a good one” before I saw that bit, but now I say it quite often in hopes that someone will give me the George Carlin answer someday.
