I saw this sign on the way home.
What’s the matter; you can’t read it? It shouldn’t matter. Neither can the audience it is welcoming. Under the DoubleTree by Hilton part it says, “WELCOMES NATIONAL FEDERATION OF THE BLIND.” This amuses me to no end. I wonder if in their amenity packages they offer free pay per view movies while highlighting that the foreign films are all subtitled for their viewing pleasure. If the DoubleTree hosted the National Federation of the Deaf, I’m sure the entertainment would be live music in the lobby. Yeah yeah, I know deaf people can feel the vibe and see the action, but still! The fact that the DoubleTree put up a sign welcoming blind people to their facility is delightful.
I was also delighted by my Rain Man of a son.
He guessed that there were 328 pieces of candy in the jar. 327 was the correct answer and he won the whole loot. My sweet little idiot savant!! How nice that days before Halloween he acquired 327 pieces of candy, because he needs it. After all, when I moved in July, I finally threw out a jar full of last year’s Halloween candy.
Further delight was provided by the name of this place.
This place is located in Salem, MA, rich in history with witch-hunts and colonists. The average joe may assume that ‘bunghole’ refers to the hole bored in a vessel such as a keg, barrel or cask through which liquid is poured in and out. However, we all know a bunghole is an anus. Beavis and Butthead utilized ‘bunghole’ quite often in everyday conversation, like I’m sure you do on Monday mornings around the water cooler. I wonder if Cornholio will be part of the reemergence of Beavis that I’ve heard is coming soon.
Another delightful time in my world is having dinner with my boys. We usually just have stimulating conversation about school, books, friends and life. But sometimes Drew gets all Shaun White on me with his threads and decides to play on the Mac instead.
And sometimes Will decides to go all Zombie on me and talk about eating brains for dinner.
And sometimes I just like to eat pumpkin brains.
Delightful things can make my day. What has delighted you lately?
