    We live in different times

    I drove my mother and aunt around to thrift stores today, plus one antiques/collectables place. It was a lot of fun and the ladies really enjoyed themselves. So did I. The last stop was the Habitat for Humanity “ReStore” store. When we walked in, I noticed a big clock against the wall.

    To show them what a civic “progressive” I am, I felt it was my duty to enlighten them. They just had to know how incorrect they were socially and politically.

    “Oh, look!” I said to my mother and aunt, but loud enough for the counter people to hear. “A grandperson clock!”

    “You mean a grandfather clock,” one of my relatives responded.

    “No, a grandperson clock. You can’t call it a grandfather clock anymore because it’s SO SEXIST!”

    One of the young girls behind the counter smiled and let out a little laugh. So did my mother and aunt. This sexist stuff isn’t for them. I guess they didn’t get Madeleine Albright’s memo about there being a “special place in hell” for women who do not support other women. Oh well.

    I know I’m not two times a lady. Heck, I’m not even a woman, but I’m taking no chances. So from now on, this is a GRANDPERSON clock! No grandmothers, either. We are living in an asexual/pansexual world and we need to accept it.

    Now, excuse me. I’ve got my nightly twerk-a-cizes to do.

    Very funny writings to say the least however there is no way in heck it will ever get that bad. Then again, It may get worse before it turns around....And no, it will never be accepted. It is only used as a political weapon, and if anyone believes it isn't, well I feel sorry for them.... BTW, did you ever serve in the military, just curious.......Thanks for the laugh!

    I sure hope it never gets that bad, Jill! But we are living in an age when kids send nude selfies to each other because it's OK to be friends with benefits. Huh? That's not my cup of tea.

    I agree that politicians are the ones responsible for social "adjustments" regarding what should be acceptable and what shouldn't. Both political parties do it and they're both wrong.

    Did I serve in the military? No. I grew up during the (Vietnam War era) draft and my number was very high. I am a true pacifist. I have never owned a gun and I never will.

    Thank you, too! I am glad this gave you a good laugh!
