Slim Pickens


Were you ever picked last when playing sports?

Me neither.

I’m sure it’s character building and loads of fun though.


note: Team Captains were usually the 2 best players and nobody wanted them on the same team … or everyone did.
Nobody or Everybody seems to agree on stuff … usually Nobody.

double note: not being picked at all really picks me … or something like that.

triple note: I picked and ate the fruit from this tree, but it tasted awful and made me sick. I’ll be more knowledgeable next time.

quadruple note: Did the Garden of Eden have a tree of stupidity too?  … or one with pineapples? … cause I like those ones.

quintuple note:shoot, a fella could have a pretty good time in Dallas with all this stuff.
Slim Pickens as Major T. J. “King” Kong in Dr. Strangelove.

sextuple note: it’s another 2 entry night.


notes to myself #91

The nextdoor neighbours don’t care if you eat the grapes growing on the side of their house, but it’s more fun to do stealthily and under the cover of darkness anyway.

  1. I was the skinny geeky kid until I was at grade 10. Then there were geekier kids than me and I wasn’t the last chosen. Poor sods!

    Yeah, I was thinking of the actor as well. What a hoot!

  2. ” Did the Garden of Eden have a tree of stupidity too?”

    You mean they had other ones also? My relatives must have not made it to those areas~~~ LOL 🙂

    I was usually picked in the middle or was the one doing the picking. I hated it! 🙂

  3. It all depends who’s game it is. I learned early on that it pays to be the one who intiates the game.

    Cue the pan pipes…..

    “I’d rather be a sparrow than a snail.
    Yes I would.
    If I could,
    I surely would.
    I’d rather be a hammer than a nail.
    Yes I would.
    If I only could,
    I surely would.”

  4. Thanks for the comments.

    S. Le: I was usually picked in the top 4 for most things: I make no apologies. Being picked last for a game of solitaire probably would hurt.

    Doraz: I’m sure there were a lot of trees growing around in the Garden of Eden: it’s always the squeaky wheel that gets the grease … or the squeaky tree that gets all the attention. I don’t know what I’m saying. hee hee!

    razzbuffnik: the game of choice growing up was road hockey and usually the kids with goalie equipment were the pickers.
    After going to South America I think I have gotten over that song. hee hee!
