There is a illusion that politicians are different than us. Politicians should get nothing more in benefits than that which is given to the populace. (Have you ever seen a politician on welfare? Me neither.)
I’m starting to get acid reflux from writing about politicians so let’s change the subject.
Since all my wounds have healed from my last foray into “What makes a woman tick,” I jump again into the frying pan and ask a very stupid question: “Why do women listen to the dictates of the fashion world?”
In my lifetime I have seen women who have deformed feet from wearing those pointed high heeled shoes — you know the kind — they have pointy toes so you can climb trees or telephone poles or for kicking me under the table to shut me up.
I ask you, “Doesn’t it hurt to wear these shoes that ultimately cause your big toe to cross over at least two others?” I bet foot doctors could tell us some wild stories!
I do have a day dream — it’s very simple, “peace on earth.” It probably is an illusion but that’s life!
I’m pooped. As time goes by, that covers things for now.
