So, I'm sitting here reading emails from my loyal 46, no wait 45 just now, followers asking why I can't find anything to write about. Martie, whom I only know through emails and blogging, is a beautiful blogger out of Texas. I love her and she seems to have impeccable timing. She asked, "You have nothing to blog about??? But I love reading your blog! You always make me smile." So, I sat here staring at a blank screen wondering, "what the hell do I write tonight?" I could write about past things that have happened that I find hysterical, I could get serious and write about right now. But then, while watching the TV with a 1000 yard stare it came to me. In a commercial, no less.
I found myself laughing my ass off at a commercial. It was for Maryland Hydroponics. Yep, hydroponics. The ad states: "Turn your closet into a garden of green." Luckily, The Man was out of the room when I lost it. "Turn your closet into a garden..." Hmmmm. What kind of fucking plants do most people grow in a closet?? Tomatoes? Watermelon??? Hell to the No. Marijuana. Pot. Mary Jane. Weed. I just saw an ad showing people how to grow pot in their closet...Holy shit. So, even though growing it is illegal, you can now order what it takes to grow it, complete with instructions. Interesting concept!
I had visions of a house in our neighborhood with helicopters flying over like a scene out of True Lies. Vans, swat teams, helicopters, spotlights...With some poor bastard yelling, "But it's just a closet garden!! I ordered all this shit online!! I saw an infomercial! It's completely legal!!" while being butt-stroked (not in the gay sense) by some big, bullet-proof Arnie. Can you imagine? Yep, hydroponics...The funniest thing about the commercial was they WERE showing people with tomato plants in their closet...Yeeeaaaahhhhhh.
So, there they are. Two of my "moments" so far this week. I know, probably not worth blogging about, but if I don't share with you two, who AM I going to share with??? Besides, I'm hoping to make Martie smile just a little....Now go--go give Martie some love. Oh, and since I blew off Stick It, Tuesday give some to Supah Momma and Chief while you're at it.
