Two Things

Thanks all, for your jelly bean preferences. I think I might be in the minority but just for the record: If I'm ever elected King of the world, you will only be able to buy red jelly beans. I will tax the other flavors out of existence. The black one might just carry the death penalty. I'm serious about this. Kind of.

The Kansas City Royals, our closest professional baseball team, have lost so many games and attendance is so poor, that if you call for tickets and ask what time the game starts, they will ask "Well, what time could you be here?"

Lunch break is over and it's back to the planter.

I went to an Indpls Indians game yesterday (AAA Pirates team). The game lasted 15 innings. By the time it was over, there were about 12 of us left. An older couple sat next to me. I turned to them and said "you must be parents... only parents sit through 15 innings". They were.

Only red jelly beans huh?? Well, I reckon I could live with that since they aren't tops on my list of candy. Now if you taxed Butterfinger candy bars then we might have an argument there!

Are you planting corn?

That's really sad about the Royals. If they include lunch with the team, I might try and make a trip to see a game.

Black jelly beans will be available on the Black Market, which will be run by ME!

Get back to work!

If your election platform is to do away with black jelly beans, I'm going to have to vote for your opponent.

Paul said...

So are you going to The Big City to watch somebody beat the Royals? Lemme know. I might join you.

Maria said...

What No Black Jelly Beans. Shoot, I should have stayed with the Socialists. I am not positive, but I believe they are all black jelly bean eaters. You know how we damn liberals are and you know if you said "red" I would say "black".

It is good to be back reading blogs.
