Writers Workshop - Glass

I am soooo depressed. I have no idea why, but some days you just get in a funk. Maybe, it is because I feel dirty and used. Maybe because I feel half empty. Maybe it is because people treat me like I am transparent. I dunno. I mean, last night everything was going fine. There were a ton of people here, we were all having a good time. There were drinks everywhere. Wine glasses with merlot, shortballs with scotch straight up, shot glasses with the tequila flowing. Some idiot even pulled a "Flick Nynn" (tequila shot, snort the salt, squeeze lime in eye; WHOOOOOOOOOAA!! BABY!! THOSE BURN!!) The poor fool was hacking salt out of his nasal cavity for an hour and squinting like Popeye for almost as long. The party went on and on into the night. Eventually people started wandering out into the night to head home and Shaggy and Batgirl were doing some late night straightening. Tables got wiped down hastily, food got wrapped and stowed, drinks were poured into the sink and dishes put in the washer. Finally they cleared out up stairs to the Batbed.....and left me all alone down here in the dark. ALONE. FORGOTTEN. A.B.A.N.D.O.N.E.D. it was like they didn't even see me over here in the corner under the lamp that hasn't worked in ...I dunno...how long?! sometimes it is enough to make you contemplate......no, no can't think of that!! Well, I am reaaaaaallly close to the edge here. Screw it, I 'm jumping.


C R A S H!!


ooooooooohhhhhhhh. Sheesh that didn't feel good. Damn carpet!! Well at least they'll have to clean up the mess in the morning.....crap here comes that poodle.


Thanks, Mama Kat, puuuuuurrrrrrrrrrrrr! I really like these workshops and some are pretty challenging..


Saturday, I will post about the pictures on the TUESDAY CAPTION CONTEST. Everyone has until Saturday to submit entries. Angie, I still haven't seen where to send this CD. Ask Melissa and Wendy if they like theirs (for references). I did buy two of the new Jack Johnson CD. I listened to mine already and it is on par with his other releases. If I can find one more song of his like "BUBBLE TOES", it will have me dancing on my hardwood floors for long hours into the night. And "MUDFOOTBALL", is still my pick-me-up before rugby games..


Gotta go for now. Have a good day all and God Bless.

Funny stuff! I have just one question... why wasn't I invited to the party? It was Troll-Guy, wasn't it? You invited him instead of me, didn't you? I'm crushed, Stu Pidasso. Crushed. I'm going off to cry now. Have a lovely day.

Poor forgotten glass!

There have to be plenty of glasses with that attitude at my house ... my wife drinks water like that little girl in the movie Signs ... I feel ok about this because we are apparently protecting ourselves from the aliens ...

Sometimes Sophia said...

Amusing. This "Flick Nynn" stuff is new to me. We never did fun stuff like that when I was in college (or during any of the decades since.) Dirty and used, indeed!

Drama Mama said...

Now THAT was funny! Good Post! I didnt come up with anything this time...too much other stuff going on in my life to hash up bad Jr. High Memories!! Lmao!

rachael said...

Michelle said...

Very clever......I love it!

Diva Ma said...

A depressed glass! LMAO! Good one.

Sheri and George said...

Loved the suicidal glass! Next time though he can call my house, there's always a glass or two hanging around looking for some action.

Maybe it is because people treat me like I am transparent

That line got a good guffaw. I'm glad I didn't have anything in my mouth! Well written & so much fun! Great post!

Rhonda said...

GREAT post!!! That poor, poor forgotten glass! lol

Melissa said...

Great story... I am sooo not creatice enough to come up with a witty glass on the edge of the table story... and YUCk, who does "Flick Nynns"?? Doesn't sound too fun...

jenn3 said...

Haha. This was great. I purposely avoided this one because my brain wasn't being very creative today. Good job!

Mama's Losin' It said...

I love how creative you got with this one. Why doesn't ANYONE think about the GLASSES!?!

Stu Pidasso said...

Thank you all!! I wish I had time to go and read all 70 or so that posted on Mama Kat's site. There are some really good writers playing along.

The "Flick Nynn" is a hilarious way to do tequila shots (aside from the severe nasal cavity burn and the excruciating eye burning). No one told me that the inventor, who is the head of a department at a major Texas university (he's teaching our children??), keeps his eye SHUT when he does it. I had my eye wide open and took all the pain needlessly. That rat bastard! T'was not fun, no, not fun at all. I did get a few free rounds from laughing bar patrons, however. I am not a victim of my pride. And Diane, Troll Guy and I have had a thing for a while, he only called you to try to make me jealous, that bi-atch!! NO NO NO!!

I think they just all forgot about you because they were all drunk?! I am a non-drinker, so I can blame all things on alcohol and assume I'm right......like this: The world is at war--because of the alcohol!!! ;-)

we all get in funks for sure. Just write through it my friend...write through it ;)!

You want a great song to listen to? Check song #2 on my Playlist. Maybe you've heard it: Sweep The Leg by No More Kings. It's about the Karate Kid. The video is THE BEST! They got all the original Cobra Kai guys to be in it!

And I can't believe your real name is Stewart Pidasso. I thought it was just a funny made-up thing for sure. Is it? You know--like I.P. Freely?!

Wow! For a comment this is really long isn't it?!
