And Nothing But The Truth

Truth Serum

You’ve come into possession of one vial of truth serum. Who would you give it to (with the person’s consent, of course) — and what questions would you ask?


You know that saying, ” It’s funny because it’s true?” I like the truth when it comes at me like that.

I hate it when people use the truth like a mallet and bash your brains out with it and then say…”I’m only telling you the truth because I care.”

Oh really.


I’d use my little vial of truth serum on one of those people ( and we all know a few of them, don’t we?) and I’m sorry but I’d skip the asking part. I’d dose them and turn them loose in let’s say, I don’t know where is the last place anyone wants to hear the truth?

Oh got it.

At a funeral.

Second to that, weddings.

Funerals and Wedding are planned, they are arranged and we know how to behave and what the steps in the process of each are. We even know what we’re suppose to wear and what to say when we talk to each other.

Do you know what happens when you don’t observe the ritual as agreed upon?

You not only get voted off the island, you get sent to another island where you are buried up to your neck in the sand, your face is smeared with honey and then you are covered with ants and bees.

Nobody wants to know ‘the truth’ at these events and much in the way of reality tv I don’t expect to hear it there either.

So using this truth serum would be like lighting the fuse on a bottle rocket.

You know, you stick the bottle rocket in a bottle ( or a beer can ) then you light the fuse and wonder- is it going to go up or just blow up there on the ground and in your face?

It would be fun just like that.


Without a doubt.

That’s what I would do- and that’s the truth.



It’s Like This

I read an  article called Stephen King On How To Write -and King says:

Oftentimes, you have to continue writing even when you don’t feel like it. “Stopping a piece of work just because it’s hard, either emotionally or imaginatively, is a bad idea,” he writes.

I agree but the truth is there’s always exceptions to rules and in this case the exception is puppies.

That’s right if you get a puppy you get to take time off from writing.

So that’s what I did.

Me and my husband got a puppy.

I named our pup Hamish Macbeth.

Hamish Macbeth was one of my favorite TV shows...and by far that name is one of the best names that’s ever been given to a character.

I almost named him Boris in honor of Karloff and Halloween.

Anyway, I’ve spent the last few days getting to know my own Hamish but  now it’s time to get back to writing and Dude..Halloween is on its way.

And in addition to writing I have to get a costume for Hamish to wear on Halloween.

Yes. I mean it.

On both counts
