Of slime and flies.

.

Fashion is ephemeral. One day something is trending hot and everyone has to wear it/do it… the next day it’s passé. Here’s hoping this never catches on, because honestly? Eew.

.

.

Sorry, but that just looks like five globs of mucus…. and if I don’t eat the slimy shellfish? I certainly don’t want them on the end of my fingers.

.

.

I added the perfect glass to the man cave bar shelf yesterday. Because I do, to both.

.

.

It’s official, I will be calling our vacuum the rollsuck supreme from now on.

.

.

Yeah, because I need Dudley to stare at me more than he does already . Not!

And speaking of Dudley, for your viewing pleasure here’s a quick clip of him enjoying his latest hobby. Fly catching.

.


.

And while it’s a bit disgusting he insists on eating them? On a positive note, our house will be fly free for the foreseeable future.

.

Products for a pandemic lockdown.

.

The first one supposedly has merit in the fact that you won’t have to touch strange doors.

.

.

Unfortunately, (or fortunately depending on your point of view) it also looks like a kinky sex toy.

Next is an electric wine aerator.

.

.

Because Covid has us all at the end of our ropes and we don’t have enough patience left to let our reds breathe on their own.

.

.

A wobble cushion to activate my core?

Just, no.

Isn’t that what husbands are for?

.

.

Frozen shot glasses. Now we’re talking.

.

.

I don’t bore easily and can’t see the need for one of these…. but our friends had one at their lakefront camp last year and said it was a riot.

Ya know, if frying insect life to a crisp is your thing.

.

Products you’re too embarrassed to admit you want.

.

But I know you do.

.

.

Admit it, we’ve all wanted to feel a little warmer and cheesier this year.

.

.

This gives a whole new meaning to the word shortcake.

.

.

Skin as soft and supple as a nice juicy brain? What woman doesn’t dream of that!

.

.

I have to admit this one might have validity. We live next to a horse farm and see our fair share of flies. A real life arcade game with salt bullets… hmm.

.

.

It’s not easy being a deer.

 

This is the time of year my heart goes out to these graceful wild creatures.

Because in Maine?

It’s fly season.

And there’s nothing flies like more than a juicy deer.

The poor things are covered in them.

Day and night, night and day.

All over their bodies.

They twitch, they scratch, they shake like a Parkinson’s patient to no avail.

I can’t even imagine how horrible this must be.

I go berserk if one nasty fly finds me when I’m mowing the lawn…. I’d be stark raving mad if I had to contend with this many!

Because I’m helpful.

 

Since we’re all staying home and social distancing in an effort to slow the spread of virus, we’re going to have a lot of time on our hands.

We can blog.

Or Read.

Or binge watch our favorite trashy Netflix series.

But for the crafty and artistic few among us?

Please feel free to steal this idea.

The rest of us are still bored.
