Issues, Issues: We All Have ‘Em

Issues. Problems. Difficulties.

We all have issues

Issues, Issues: We All Have 'Em

I feel your pain.

  • You see oddball smiley faces in kernels of corn. And you photograph them.


  • You get jet lag from going to an air show.


  • You simply can’t resist the urge to take a selfie with a rattlesnake or a rabid raccoon.


  • You’re convinced there are sinkholes and lightning bolts with your name on them. And they are gonna find you. Soon. Perhaps on the same Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day.


  • Speaking of issues…  Mamma Mia!  Have you noticed that ALL of the candidates running for President have glaring Daddy issues?


  • Bazooka Joe Blow!  You believe all sugar is evil and that chewing gum is a gateway drug.


  • You have a 20-Something son (who lives with you) who is going for another Master’s Degree – this time in Ukulele.


  • Your Goth daughter is getting married by a Wiccan priest at a Taco Bell. You are conflicted. For the wedding, should you request she lose the spiky dog collar-choker and wear white? Or should you, just, roll, over, and, give, the, F, up?

Going On Vacation? A Message From Your Cat

21 Aug


This is a message (heh, a threat you say?) from me, your imperious cat.


Planning on leaving me (your cherished feline pet) at home while you go on a business trip or (how dare you) a fancy vacation is a provocation at best, and, at worst, an act of war.


Vacation? A Message from Your Cat

    Do I look pleased?


May I remind you… Actions have consequences!

My expectations are simple

Any pet sitters (or as I call them – my personal assistants) you hire will have to be approved by moi. I will not accept a total stranger, a mindless teen, or an idiot relative. You will have to fork the big bucks for a seasoned professional.

I will need the usual creature comforts: plenty of poached wild salmon, tuna treats, filtered drinking water, and fresh (not the cheap packaged stuff) catnip. A few new frou-frou toys would be nice.

I will be using your overpriced, purple velvet, hand embroidered, imported meditation cushion as a cat bed, and – if I’m in the mood – a Porta-Potty.

There may be some acting out – I may have to spray the sofa cushions and use the Monet as a scratching post.

Expect some attitude when you return home (the scene of your crime).

The silent treatment and the cold shoulder will be part of your punishment. Suffice it to say, there will be more hissing than purring for awhile.

You can always “talk to the tail.”

Although I am pretty pissed at you, I will save up my hairballs and dead mice for you. You can thank me later.



   Hear Me Roar!


Remember… I am the master. You are the slave. (MEOW)


THANK YOU  for subscribing to “I Feel Your Pain!” and reading it on and on Facebook.  YOU are the BEST!



Summer Beach Bummers

14 Aug


Fun in the sun isn’t always fun.

A day at the beach can be more misery than merriment.

And now they tell us sunscreen gives us cancer? Ain’t that sweet :)

My 15 summer bummers… What are yours?

1.   Swimsuit wardrobe malfunction when faking bravado on the Boogie Board

2.   Sunburn on private parts

3.   Younger, slimmer, and obviously wealthier women donning floss bikinis, spray tans, and serious diamond earrings

4.   Being buried in bacteria filthy, crab infested, scalding sand for the amusement and photo opp pleasure of loved ones

5.   People who use “summer” as a verb, but not “budget” as a verb […]
