Invisible Lines



Why is it okay to try on someone’s glasses and say, “Man! your eyesight is messed up.” … or hop around on someone with a broken leg’s crutches and say, “How can you hobble around on these things?

but … if you try to wheel yourself around in someone’s wheelchair or put someone’s toupee on, you are the biggest prick in the world!

There should be a rulebook or something about this.


note: hearing aids … I don’t know about.

double note: if I’ve offended anyone, I haven’t meant to.

triple note: this is the best Christmas present I have received for a very long time. Someone is a mad person!!!!!

*SPECIAL NOTE: I think I’ve put on 5 entries tonight. I may have other stuff to do this weekend … but maybe not.



The Blue Monkey #7


The Blue Monkey predicts:

In our lifetime wheelchairs will only have one wheel.

People’s balance will be greatly improved for some reason.



The blue monkey is a lesser oracle who predicts what may happen, not what will happen.He has studied many different disciplines on his path to enlightenment, including: using ouija boards, reading horoscopes, counting cherry pits, blowing out birthday candles, opening fortune cookies, pulling wishbones, watching Kung Fu reruns, listening to the weatherman, twisting apple stems, and shaking the Magic 8 Ball. All behold the blue monkey!

BEHOLD: The Blue Monkey #1
             The Blue Monkey #2
             The Blue Monkey #3
             The Blue Monkey #4
             The Blue Monkey #5
             The Blue Monkey #6






Is driving through puddles in a car just a natural progression from jumping in puddles as a kid?

It must be very anti-climatic at the wheelchair stage.

note: sidewalk tsunami victim in the rear-view mirror! hee hee!

double note: I think the unseasonable raininess here has precipitated this idea (and the next one).


My Wheelchair

About 7 months ago I bought a wheelchair at a recycle shop.
I didn’t need it, but for 1000 yen (about $10) it was a bargain.
I pretended not to notice the look on the clerk’s face, forked over the money, and took it home.
Ever since I was a kid, I’ve always wanted one.
And now I am the proud owner of one!
I think most people, who don’t need them, have a fascination with wheelchairs.
There is something about sitting in that seat and wheeling yourself around.
I had a BBQ party and 90% of those who came either sat in the wheelchair or took it for a spin.
I could see on a few friends’ faces that they were debating whether they should get one too.
We could have races on weekends!
