In a Mundane World Part 1

Journal Entry: Mon Jul 6, 2015, 1:30 PM
This is strictly for your personal amusement as the mundane is seldom news worthy and thereby we can lose perspective of what is really basic daily life.

The subtitle for this writing is "in search of Ant Traps".

I'd finished my shift at work and was off the clock. A woman approached me, apologizing having recognized my shift had ended and I was doing some personal shopping. "Could you please tell me where the ant traps are, I can't find them?." " I need some myself, where have you looked?" She told me and I answered that "logically" they should be in aisle such and such which has automotive, lightbulbs, batteries, pet flea and tick control, etc. Ha, ha - Not. I momentarily slipped out mentally and muttered "laundry soap". She said "Laundry Soap?!! Lead on!"

Eureka, there they were right next to paper plates, plastic utensils and paper and plastic cups. Picnic = ants. :faint: Who, in this day and age, goes on picnics anymore, if that was the association some upper management person made while drafting the plan-o-grams.? She remarked "but there is only one box left -will you split it with me?" I replied "hang on" and got down on my hands and knees, leaned in to my shoulder and pulled forward five more boxes. We were golden.

So what's the big deal? Have you ever ingested one of these pisants accidently because it had scoped out your morning cuppa with sugar and was lurking on the rim of your dark, cobalt blue mug?

Blech and double blech!

Usually I'm tolerant of beasties but will wage war when necessary ;)

My pleasure Gerda!  This beats the pants off most of the contemporary art selling for big $$$. A giclee print on paper suitable for ink work, in this case, would be stunning and no one would be the wiser. You have many pieces I deem gallery worthy - you are talented!!
