The Dude

This morning it was the same old thing. He's barely inside when he begins with, "Hey, did you know Wal-Mart is filled with those types?"

He hates gay people, or so he claims. His assertions are never ending...always with the hate talk. Like this, "I hate those mother*uckers. They're everywhere. I bet six out of ten men in that park are lip smackers. Know what I mean?"

I change the subject. Ask if he's seen or has knowledge of a box of .32-20. Then, it's back to the subject of gays. I think perhaps he protest far too much...especially since he dresses in muscle shirts, tight trousers, loud colors. He's married with two children.

"I'm telling 'ya, Stephen, those people have ruined our country."

"Okay, Mac."

I again changed the subject. Mentioned the Marine in Mexico. Him, "Boy I bet when he leaves that prison you'd be able to hear a BB rattle in his rear."

See what I mean....

Hey, live and let live.

Sweet Wife is home building a beef stew. My phone has only screamed twice, so far. She's a good cook, but the structure, routine of a beef stew is new to her.

Still, I bet it turns out just fine...

Gotta run, later.

  1. I used to think that it was hard to ruin a beef stew, but that assumed common sense on the chef's part. Then my brother-in-law got hold of a bag of barley ...

    Even the coyotes wouldn't touch it. I know; we tried.

  4. We were once friends with another couple. Our kids played together and went to the same schools. He and his wife drifted into a cult church and became extremely homophobic, among other things. I finally banished them from our home. Seems some folks just have to have something to hate, and a community that supports that hate.

  5. I'm having beef stew too. Also I checked with a friend who owns a gun shop he can't get any 32.20 ammo either. I'm starting to take this search personal. I will find that ammo

    1. Corey, I did find individual rounds for sale...the fella wanted just shy of $2.00 per round. Limit, one round. 'Nuff said. Thanks, my friend.

  7. My lovely wife has many fine qualities -cooking isn't one of them. She married me for my cooking. :)

    As for hating folks for being different . . . well . . . I'm too lazy to put all that energy into hating.

  9. I agree. It's hard enough to get everything done and keep everything together to worry about that particular issue. It's a waste of energy.
