Happy Feel Good Friday to Da WWD! Hui!
It's also FF....... Furlough Friday - which has various meanings (consequences) for all.
If you're not a teacher or state workah, you gotta work anyways but we (non-state workahs) surah did benefit big time in one way...... da freeways/highways are supah clear! Da Wife and I got to work in about 17 minutes and people were still zooming past us too like they were on da autobahn trying to break da land speed record.
Wait a minute.
We have DAT much state workahs and teachers off today? Whoa.
It also meant that those with keiki had to scramble with day care or take a vacation day or for da lucky ones, bring their keiki to work with them. Business' are brainstorming for ways to help out - cash in - on a possible opportunity like Pearlridge's Free Furlough Friday Activities.
Wat I don't get is how come oddah state agencies didn't collaborate in helping out like how da libraries are suggesting to help out. They have to go through so much red tape (WWD!) just to change their furloughs from Fridays to Wednesday's in hopes to give keiki - and oddahs on furlough - a place to go to on Fridays.
Wat I reaaaaally no get is is if everybody get furloughs on Friday....... wat everybody going/can do?
How dis affects us all in da long run won't be determined till..... da long run so it's a wait and see for now with all da legal mumbo-jumbo flying around now.
I guess FGF could have stood for...... Furloughs Garner Fights or Freeways Gone Free or my favorite....... Families Get F#*&ed.
So for those who drop in on FGF (traditionally seems to be a slow post day), got any acronyms to share? Be witty, be clever........ and you'll win a minimum $10 gift card to Ryan's or minimum $15 to Kincaids with a possibility to win a $500 gift card to da respective restaurants! *Details on da card itself and gotta use by Dec 9*
So whether you come up with a clever "FGF" or if we hit post #77....... or maybe you just like one by asking, I have a couple of each to give away so good luck!
And of course, hea's da FGF Joke of da Day courtesy of rn2b:
The Sweetness of Married Life
A couple had only been married for two weeks and the husband although very much in love, couldn't wait to go out on the town and party with his old buddies.
So, he said to his new wife, "Honey, I'll be right back."
"Where are you going, Coochy Coo?" asked the wife.
"I'm going to the bar, Pretty Face," he answered. "I'm going to have a beer."
The wife said, "You want a beer, my love?" She opened the door to the refrigerator and showed him 25 different kinds of beer, brands from 12 different countries: Germany, Holland, Japan, India, etc.
The husband didn't know what to do, and the only thing that he could think of saying was, "Yes, Lollipop... but at the bar... You know...they have frozen glasses... "
He didn't get to finish the sentence, because the wife interrupted him by saying, "You want a frozen glass, Puppy Face?" She took a huge beer mug out of the freezer, so frozen that she was getting chills just holding it.
The husband, looking a bit pale, said, "Yes, Tootsie Roll, but at the bar they have those hors d'oeuvres that are really delicious... I won't be long.
I'll be right back. I promise. OK?"
"You want hors d'oeuvres, Poochie Pooh?" She opened the oven and took out 5 dishes of different hors d'oeuvres: chicken wings, pigs in blankets, mushroom caps, and little quiches.
"But my sweet honey... at the bar.... you know there's swearing, dirty words and all that..."
"You want dirty words, Cutie Pie? LISTEN UP CHICKEN SHIT! SIT YOUR A$$ DOWN, SHUT THE HELL UP, DRINK YOUR BEER IN YOUR FROZEN MUG AND EAT YOUR HORS D'OEUVRES BECAUSE YOUR MARRIED A$$ ISN'T GOING TO A DAMNED BAR! THAT SH!T IS OVER, GOT IT, JACKA$$?"
and...they lived happily ever after.
Sounds almost like a true story.
Happy Feel Good Friday Everybodies!
