I should have known what kind of a day I was going to have when I cut my grapefruit in half and forgot to cut on the equator. I haven’t done that since my sister showed me after she learned it in Home Economics! (So I already knew it when I took Home Economics two years later; sometimes it’s not so bad being a little sister.) So I did learn something today: it is possible to eat an incorrectly cut grapefruit with a spoon.
I know, other people had other things happen to them — their own fault or otherwise — that were far more uncomfortable, inconvenient, or worse. But I was struck by my own ineptness and wanted to mention it.
I thought I would add a picture to pep things up and found this little cutie in my Media Library (I tried searching for something new, but had no luck and less patience). So here we have a Monstrous Monday post.
It is also a Post-Rehearsal Post, because I have recently returned from a rehearsal of A Trivial Murder, the interactive dinner theatre we are putting on to benefit the Herkimer County Historical Society (perhaps you read my other blog posts bout it).
That is the cover photo on the Facebook event of the mystery. Murder is pretty monstrous, right?
Here is another monster who is supposedly human. (Spoiler alert: I’m about to talk about endings of Halloween movies!). I say supposedly, because I saw Halloween II, where he walked out of a flaming room in flames himself and flopped down on the floor, continuing to burn. I could buy that he got shot and walked away after the first Halloween; maybe they missed all vital organs and it only looked like a lot of blood. Those flames would be really hard to live through. I did not see another Halloween movie till Halloween H2O, and I don’t remember how they dispatched Michael Myers in that one (although I saw it just now when I Googled Halloween H2O to see how to spell “Michael Myers”) (and I still think it’s funny that he has the same name as the guy from Wayne’s World).
So this is my Monday post. Sufficiently monstrous, I trust. I hope to see you all on Tuesday, when I hope not to be too Tired.
