Hey I didn’t say it world be easy to live your life where every utterance can be spelled both forwards or backwards. But so be it if one wants to be among the truly Enlightened.
Lately I seem to be lucky:
A neighbor’s mom approached me exasperated on the street, phone in hand. She’s had enough of her son’s arrogant attitude and had SMS-ed him ‘ED U R RUDE!’
He replied: ‘AM I MA?’. As if his obvious character flaw was an un-proven conjecture.
Now I know Edward. Once you get past his exterior bravado he’s a sensitive entity in fact.
So that afternoon I SMS-ed his mother with my advice:
“REC: INSIDE, ED IS NICER”
Haven’t heard from either of ’em yet so cross yer fingers.
Been on the net a lot the last couple days; hey.it’s my job. Had to dig up the dirt on two job candidates here for a company I can’t name. Met one guy Damian, (under false pretense, of course) and barely escaped with my ears intact. What a gabber! The other fellow is a curious specimen; does ‘new-age’ lectures; I went to one, sat in the back row. He’s slick. Plus I’m told he works in private investigations for hospitals disputing claims.Name’s ‘Zelig’ and I fear he may be unstable.
Anyway I filed my report:
GOD, DAMIAN IS TMI-PRONE! ZELIG?.. ASK ROW 8. WORKS AGILE ZEN OR P.I. MT SINAI. MAD DOG.
Next stop was a rare bird shop down at the ‘Safari’ at Ramat Gan near Tel Aviv. I volunteered to take my neighbor Ed’s older brother, call him ‘S’. Most of the exhibitors, turned out, were young female police academy candidates. ‘S’ got into a fight wouldn’t you know. Runs in families I guess. Anyway:
‘S’ SORTA BLASTED A CADET’S ALBATROSS.
Hmm.. guess that’s the ‘takeaway’ as they call it these days.
Lucky Ed does have a younger sister, sweet thing. She was having trouble raising two ‘found’ kittens. They wouldn’t eat anything plus they seemed to be shivvering all night. I spent some time on net-research then an equal time convincing her to at least try what I recommended:
LOOK, STIR ‘EM RAW GELATIN, KNIT A LEG-WARMER, IT’S KOOL.
Last I heard they are still alive, albeit looking a bit silly in their purple knit 4-legged ‘ski-pants’.
Next time we’ll talk about how to create from scratch, no cheating, phrases for almost any situation. Hint: sit in a chair, pick a word spell it backwards in your head and see what comes out.
Here’s one: ‘PERCIVAL’ Ok a quick look at ‘LAVICREP’ and you see that with an ‘S’ you can get ‘SLAVIC REP. (Of course at a cost of making Percival plural or possessive. I went ahead and made SLAVIC REPTILE but now we have to deal with the ‘ELIT’, coming from the other direction. Need a verb ending in ‘EL ‘MODEL CANCEL? As you can see it’s a lot of Panamanian canal-digging in both directions. The reader is invited to flesh out ‘PERCIVAL. The big bucks, be reminded, go to Palindromes which make sense and don’t look contrived or contorted. Be well/ JS
