I had to write a post about the full moon this past weekend.

And all the crazies the bubbled to the surface because of it.

The largest moon in 19 years, the damn thing was so big they named it The SUPERMOON.

Did you see it? It was spectacular.... really it was.

Did you notice anything else this past weekend?

Like maybe that the whole world had temporarily gone totally nuts..

SUPERMOON came complete with SUPERMADNESS...

Yes it did...

Kroger's seemed unusually annoying, it was overrun with irritable agitated inpatients waiting in line behind slow poke check writers in the 15 items or less aisle.

The bimbo behind me sucked up my personal space while we waited in line.

So much so she had me feeling a bit like the front bug...

When I finally shook her off I was accosted in the exit way by a couple of three foot tall hardcore saleswomen...who wouldn't let up no matter what I said.

"Would you like to buy some Girl Scout cookies?" they asked..

"No thanks" I answer politely "I already bought some".

(Honestly I did buy some...from my great niece who threatened Daddio with her fist when he looked like he may only buy one or two boxes...)

(seriously, the kid is so freakin cute she could sell Daddio anything)

"Well you can buy more and freeze em" they counter.

"No thanks, our refrigerator is broken and currently we are using a cooler..so no, they wouldn't fit" I fib...

"They keep in the pantry for weeks" they say.

"ummm, no thanks. I'm on a diet".... I lie.

"I'm gluten free"...

"I'm a recovering chocoholic"..

" No can do... stomach issues" ...

"I gave them up for Lent"...

"I only have a debit card"....

No digo el inglés....

When I growl and bare my fangs they finally let me pass, empty handed.

Come on admit it...you too barked at the moon...the SUPERMOON, didn't you?


  1. How on earth did I miss the Supermoon? I remember hearing that it was coming, and yet...I didn't notice it when it came. Yes, people were crazy, yes, my hormones were out of whack, yes everyone seemed ready to hurt everyone else...but that is a pretty normal weekend for me. I am bummed I neglected to look out the window.

  2. Don't tell me you have full moon weekends every weekend...? That would be awful!! I seem very sensitive to them... both in going nuts myself, and encountering many more just like me!!! Take care!!


  3. Great post! Hilarious :) I am upset because I ended up missing it. Oh well. Maybe in 18 years, huh?

  4. I normally don't remember anything either, don't ever think you're alone with that ;-) thanks for the comment.


Some bloggers write "gimme me some love".... as far as I'm concerned, I'd love some love, but I'd even take some hate, some expressions of your disgust, your outrage, mild irritation, sheer joy...whatever, I can take it, honestly I can. Just please (please) leave a comment or two and let me know what you think. Merci.
