Thursday Three

I had a longer post planned for today, but instead I think I'll get off the computer. (Not to be confused with "Getting off while I'm ON the computer", which is another thing entirely-- not that I would know anything about that).
Anyway, the reason I'll be logging off is because there are storms approaching. We're under a tornado watch until midnight. Some counties are under a tornado warning, which means tornadoes are already being spotted. On my way home I could see big storm clouds in the distance with lightning in them, and now I can hear thunder off in the distance.
So I'm going to go light some candles just in case the power goes out.
That way I won't be immediately enveloped in utter darkness.

If a tornado does hit, and I get swept away, here are three things that might happen:

1) I may land on your kitchen table, wearing a pair of ruby slippers and a cheap blue dress that does not compliment my figure. If you don't HAVE a kitchen table, please hurry up and get one before I land. That floor looks awfully hard.

2) Hailstones may hit me repeatedly in the head, causing me to think I am Carmen Miranda. I will then attempt to wear a giant hat made of fruit, which will be so heavy it will instantly snap my neck.

3) I will be blown across the border into Canada, and will enjoy it so much I will want to spend the rest of my life there. (Which may be brief, depending on how soon I wear the fruit-hat.)

Sorry I couldn't bring you a list of thirteen.
Now please go spread something soft on your kitchen table.
If you don't hear from me for a few days, e-mail Canada.
(They DO have e-mail there, right?)

My floor is softer than my desk - a.k.a. kitchen table!

Just don't hit the trunk, or I'll probably have to just throw you in there & pretend I don't know you.

Just sayin'.

I spread pillows EVERYWHERE and waited all day.You haven't crashed in yet. I assume all is well? I hope so!! Otherwise I haven't done my job well!!

Oh...ok...I thought you were ignoring me.

You're in luck if you crash down in my dining room, because it's not a dining room anymore. It's a library with a nice soft reclining chair. And there's soft carpet if your trajectory is off just a bit.

Now the good thing is that the tall fruity hat does create a good wind drag.

On word of advice. If you see a white rabbit with a waste coat and a watch, you'll know you've been blown to the wrong place entirely.

Janna said...

Tug: Why can't I hit the trunk? What's so special about the trunk? Now I WANT to hit the trunk, just to find out...

Metalmom: Thanks for the pillows!

Travos Travis Travis: You're right; the carpet was VERY soft.

Square1: No, that was LAST week when I met the rabbit. I think I'd just drank some expired milk.

Lynda said...

We were under watch also, but just in case, I put some soft papers on the table for you to land on. Oh, who am I kidding. The papers were already there.

So, why didn't you drop in?

Marilyn said...

I know they have e-mail in Canada... I just don't know which one is yours.

So, you survived the storms intact, I assume. You know Canada would be infinitely better than Kansas. No offense to Kansas (my hubby was born there, as were his parents), but I've been to Kansas, and...well, I'd rather be...anywhere else.

Still studying the headers. I'll let you know finally within a week, 'kay?

Turnbaby said...

Glad you survived that mess--funny stuff!

Mr. Fabulous said...

I thought Michigan was already part of Canada...

Janna said...

Lynda: Thanks for the papers. Some hot sauce would've been nice too, y'know. Just sayin'.

Marilyn: As soon as I find out myself, I'll let everyone know!

Desert Songbird: I hear it's very... flat.

Turnbaby: Yes, I seem to have survived intact, more or less!

Mr. Fab: Only during the winter.
