Good Morning, Everyone! 🙌🏻 MIME over MATTER! 🙌🏻
🙌🏻 🙌🏻 The first time that I saw a MIME on a street in New York City
I remember thinking “He’s flexible…I wonder if he’s witty…”
And my FATHER grabbed me by the hand and took me from the GUTTER
And said, “You can’t get up so close…Come, Let’s go find your Mother…”.
“My Mother, Are you kidding me? She’s somewhere in the mob…
We know so many people here…and she’s one to HOBNOB…”
Of course it wasn’t said out loud, but this is what I thought,
My Father was still tugging me, ’cause tickets he had bought.
A show?…I want to PICKET it, the show held no allure…
My mind INFUSEd with wonder now…The Mime, please an ENCORE.
So when the show was over, I forced my Dad to seek
This white-faced man with that one tear, who he said didn’t speak.
I wasn’t going home yet, and I made my Father walk,
I wanted to give money to this man who couldn’t talk.
We found him and I stared wide-eyed at that one falling tear
I got up close and said, “Don’t cry…and I hope you can hear…”🙌🏻 🙌🏻
Childhood for me was a mixed bag of fun and endless, endless questions. Sort of like our words today…Are they new, B B with an H, Farther, how do you spell Feng Shui? Fun, but questions…Great words, though, if I do SAY SO myself. So, our cartoon. Jeff shows us a street scene; a group of people, with a mime passing the hat around. And sadly, the only two who care are the oldest and the youngest. Oh, and the dog. By the dialogue, the other three are all TALK, no ACTION. The indifference though, leaves me SPEECHLESS. “An imaginary dollar”? Please, there are NO WORDS. It’s a tough crowd for this mime, like walking through a MIME field! Dave’s clue TELLS us that the mime “earned ‘Some’ money…” Jeff’s showing us it wasn’t much…”NOTHING TO SPEAK OF“. Good pun, Guys. (Good lesson, too). Eye candy today? Coffee cup? Man-bun? Waggin’ tail on the dog? Two blonde women dressed in purple? (Oh, I forgot. We weren’t going to TALK about that)! No, it’s the quarter going into the hat. Enlarged, you can actually see Washington’s profile! Kudos, Jeff, what detail! Now THAT’S SAYING something!
So, there you have it Folks, Done! Have a great day, Everyone!
And today, let’s try thinking Outside the box! 🙌🏻 🙋🏻
