Miss's Mailbox

Dear Miss,
If it is a penny for your thoughts and everyone puts their two cents in, who keeps the profit?
~Kanrei

Dear Kan,
I do.


Dear Miss Begotten,
Why do fools fall in love?
~G-man

Well, Dearest G, it's like this. Fools have an off-kilter center of gravity which causes them to stumble about and fall over quite a lot. Consequently, they have an alarming tendency to fall in love while all rolled over -- and giggling. Conversely, smarter people (because they have better balance) ease into situations vertically. They'll thrust and parry, test the waters, take two steps back for every step forward, and just generally proceed with extreme caution. So, who's happier in love, the fool or the smarty-pants? Who can say? Certainly, not the middle-of-the-road Miss B.

Dear Miss Begotten,
How do you find the time and energy to be so consistently clever and funny?
~Just Askin'

Dear JA,
Did you know that ja means yes in German? Just sayin'. Miss B has no idea what the answer to your question is. All she knows is that she gets busy on Thursday nights, thinking up a storm, ciphering out the answers to y'all's questions. Mainly because she knows that if she doesn't come up with something, she'll look pretty dang dumb. And there's already plenty of that to go around Monday through Thursday.

Dear Miss Begotten,
I gather you read a lot. Do you read strictly for pleasure?
~Wondering Dude

Dear Dude,
There's no percentage in doing anything you don't want to do; i.e., unless there's pleasure in it. So yes, Miss reads for the sheer pleasure of it. Of course, she does other things for pleasure, too. Just so we're straight on that; i.e., Miss isn't strictly a bookworm.

Miss has TWISTED LINGUISTICS for you today. Of course, she does!

anectodes - Story-telling, warty frogs.

paculiar - A strange way of packing for a trip.

You're turn - You WILL twirl and turn.

facinating - Fixating on facts.

crumplled - Forced to eat crumpets and crullers.

onfo - Call for you, Line 4.

Be weary of people who... - Sick and tired of humanity.

somemore - I have more than you. So what?

answered this tread - Speaking to tires.

Muslin attitudes - How one feels about one's sheets.


For a little lagniappe at the end of the day, how about yet another quiz?

You Don't Need Extra Attention

You're perfectly happy with who you are, and you don't need attention to feel good about yourself.
You prefer to let your actions and accomplishments speak for themselves.
Working hard to get people to like you is your idea of a nightmare.
You've got a lot going on, and anyone with half a brain will notice that on their own!

You come across as: Confident and serious

People may wrongly think you're: Stuck up and shy

Stuck up and Shy? You? Bwahahahaha!

I live. Sorry I have been MIA this week. It has been one of those weeks.

How did I know you would keep the pennies?

As I commented yesterday's, you posted anew.

Dear Miss,
What does an honest person have to do to get ahead?

***You Are An Attention Seeker***


You're only human, so you can't help but want a little attention every now and then.
You love the spotlight, but only when it's well deserved. You'd hate to be known for the wrong thing.
And you also don't mind sharing the spotlight. You can easily give someone else credit or a complement.
You know there's enough attention to go around, and it makes you happy when your friends shine.

You come across as: Friendly and interesting

People may wrongly think you're: A little more modest than you actually are!

Can't decide if I agree with this quiz or not. There are loads of times I go out of my way to keep from getting attention. Especially when the law is involved. LOL

We all have our MIA periods, Kan. Don't sweat it. You'll get back into it when you feel like it.

How did I know you would keep the pennies?

You're a very good guesser. LOL.

Interesting question, Charles. Thank God Miss has a whole week to think about it.:)

I hear you, Roxan. Not a good place to be, especially with the law.:)

VE said...

I thought the IRS got all the profits??

Serena Joy said...

Only if they get there first, VE.:-)

Oh I'm sorry..Miss Begotten...

OK..
"Which is better...
Wal-Mart..K-Mart
Sam's..Costco
Burger King...Wendy's
Pizza-Hut ..Little Caesar's?"
The suspence is killing me..xox
Have a Great Night..
It's not too hot and wet down there in your neck of the woods is it?

ThatGreenyFlower said...

I'm an attention seeker. Never would have guessed that, though. I thought I avoided the spotlight...though I do love to dance!

With regard to my question, nice answer. You might have been born yesterday, but you've been up all night, haven't you, you cute thing!

Serena Joy said...

Scientfic, Galen? Me? I wouldn't bet the farm on it.:) Wow, a shopping question -- I'll work out an answer to that for you.

Nah, it's cooled off significantly now. Yesterday was still hot and humid, but today was fabulous. TGIF and happy weekend, G.:-)

Don't worry about the stupid quiz, Greeny. Damn thing has tunnel vision if you ask me. I DID spend all night answering that question. How did you know?!:-)

Lee said...

Be still! Be still! Oh! Foolish heart!

I often wonder if I'll fall in love again....haven't found nor have I seen any likely candidates lately...umm...

I don't need extra attention & the rest that it says...{ won't be the third person to repeat it all}

Dear Miss,
What does an honest person have to do to get ahead?

A. Asks oneself honestly, " Is this for me?"
