Bob—my minion, courtesy of my husband—is a symbol of my excesses:
Too much chocolate and champagne: I, like Bob, am a candidate for the cakewalk rather than the catwalk.
Too much grieving: my father, who was affectionately called Bob (not his real name) by our extended family, died 13 years ago, but his ghost still looms at dawn.
Too strange a sense of humour: dark, subversive, and sometimes toilet.
And now I’m laughing too long and too loud.
Have a silly weekend.

Nice to have some silly infused into one’s day!!! http://judydykstrabrown.com/2015/07/11/the-rabbits-navel/
Silly is good. Thanks for popping in. 😃
I love minions! Haven’t seen the latest movie yet but just the ads are a crack up. 😀
They are a delight. 😄
farts make everyone laugh 😅
We’re all children at heart. 😋
Ah…I shall dedicate this week to being silly! Cheers and thanks for the smiles.
Haha. Thanks, Charles. A week of silliness – what a good idea. 😄
Oh, lovely and just what I needed. I can’t be silly this week, though – my collie Bella goes in for spinal surgery. I’m a wreck.
Oh, poor Bella, Monica. 😞 is it a congenital condition? Hope all goes well. Hugs. xxx
Haaaaaa! Now I’m laughing. Jokes like that never age 😀
Hee hee 🙂
Farts get more frequent—and less embarrassing—with age.
I think most of us are minions at heart 🙂
I love that expression … a candidate for the cakewalk rather than the catwalk … I’m going to have to remember that one!
I think you’re right. 🙂
I’m trying to find a happy medium between the two walks by walking more. 🙂

looking again at this post, BB, I find we share a lot – chocolate and champagne, too much grieving – I know your poems about your father – and a subversive slant on life – silliness is a good balance
I hope we can share champagne and chocolate together some day, Monica. Thank you. 🙂
a lovely thought, BB – I hope so, too
