Weekly News

It’s Wednesday, and this week I got the day right. 🙂 Applause, applause. I’ll bow now. You can’t see it, but the flourish I just made with my left hand was spectacular. I may even be good enough to replace Vanna. It doesn’t matter that she doesn’t do the gestures for prizes anymore; I’ll bring them back. I’m a trend-maker, you’ll see. In the meantime, on to the news.

 

Our first story shows a definite case of a career-minded young man. He doesn’t mean to commit crimes, it’s just that he knows what he wants to be when he grows up – a bus driver. Come on.

One question: Would you like fries with that?

Fossils are cool, and we learn a lot from them. But, um, who wants a fossilized piece of crap? Seriously?

I’ll leave with that last news piece. There’s not much I can say to top it, so until next week…

About kimlajevardi

I am a forty-something-year-old writer. I'm currently drafting my second book. I've also written short stories, poems, and some non-fiction over the last several years. My interest in writing formed during countless hours with my nose tucked in books. I may have even been clutching a novel as I was born. :)

    The school bus incident sounds a little amusing until you think of how easily he could have run someone down or caused and accident. Then it’s not amusing. $200,000 for a water tower (without water) that is painted like a ketchup bottle? And there’s a great bridge in Manhattan for sale, too… Poop! I’m surprised they can’t figure out what animal it’s from. Yeah, mounting it on black marble makes all the difference…right… 😉

      I agree that the bus theft is dangerous. What worries me is parents who have so little impact that he wasn’t scared shitless after the first instance. A bridge you say? Let me get my checkbook. 🙂 I know the marble makes it shine for you. Wouldn’t that look absolutely delectable in your living room?

  2. I’m impressed a 12 year old can drive anything. I tried learning in my mid-thirties and gave up because I was so bad at it!

    • kimlajevardi says:

      Some kids live in areas where they get some driving training early. Rural areas in the U.S. actually boast kids who learn to drive as young as ten. As long as they’re on their property, it’s legal. Not advisable for certain kids, especially those with a propensity toward the criminal side, but legal.

  3. People really do analyze fossilized pieces of crap. No thanks!

      Scientific analysis I can get on board with. If a museum or institution had the crap, I would understand. But to buy it? Really? What historical or collectible value could it honestly contain? Weird.
