How Quickly Things Can Change…

Having lived in Ohio virtually my entire life, I shouldn’t really be so surprised by today’s weather flip flop. But I am. I mean, for the past few days, my beloved Martin and I have been basking in central air-conditioning comfort at Xander’s house while the weather outside has been miserable, hot and humid. I wanted these on my feet –Flip flops

I wanted these flip flops. I love flip flops. I don’t wear them often (they are SO bad for your feet) but they are comfy and cool in hot weather.

However, given today’s dramatic temperature drop, now all I want on my feet are these –

ragg-wool-socks

Yup, I want some ragg wool socks. My feet are like two little icebergs today – OK, like two size 11 icebergs today. Anyway, today’s weather has been a welcome distraction for me from the BS happening in Washington. Oh, don’t think for a minute that I have forgotten – or forgiven – the cowardice displayed by key Democrats regarding the proposed immigration reform bill. You know, it’s where the gay and lesbian-inclusive immigration reform provisions were withdrawn to prevent the entire process from collapsing. It was just another example of how things can change drastically in less than one day, how politicians can flip-flop in the blink of an eye. Additionally, other than a few “strongly-worded statements,” I have failed to see the forceful, passionate call-to-arms support from our “alleged” allies.

But as I said, don’t worry. I haven’t forgotten and I will have trouble forgiving…

Hmmm… Maybe today, in addition to keeping my feet warm, I could take those thick ragg wool socks and stuff them in the mouths of Senators Rubio, Graham, Franken, Durbin, Feinstein and Schumer. The first two I just want to shut up, period, and the next four? I want them to keep quiet and really think about what they are saying before they open their mouths again…
