"Down the Drain With Jane"
Wednesday, November 19, 2008 • Posted November 19, 2008

Have you ever wondered why there is more packaging than there is product? I go shopping and when all is said and done, there is more paper in the trash than there is food in the refrigerator.

Why is it that we order a double meat and cheese burger with fries and a “diet” drink? Or, why we drink bottle water, from who knows where, and not the well water in the back yard?

Have you noticed that Southern folk pronounce “Politics” Pile-a-ticks? Actually, if you want to get down to the nitty/gritty of the word, we Southerners pronounce it correctly! And, twenty-two months of Pile-a-ticks, is too much for one's mental health. I was itching in the sixth month!

How come, I’ve never been “Poled?” I’ve got a whole lot to say about stuff. In fact, I consider myself a master of “STUFF!” I have all sorts of opinions on these pile-a-ticks and other matters, ranging from a to Z.

However, and for whatever, you’ll have to admit I’m right with the plastic poinsettias!

P.S. “If you hunt with your kids today, you won’t have to hunt for them tomorrow!” This is a First Willie Mae verse.
