Good Morning, Everyone! 💻 WORKING WITH A HEIGHT DISADVANTAGE 💻
🎶 The monkeys stand for honesty, GIRAFFES are insincere, and the elephants are kindly but they’re dumb…Orangutans are skeptical of changes in their cages…And the zookeeper is very fond of rum…At the Zoo…At the Zoo…At the Zoo….🎶 “At The Zoo” – Simon and Garfunkle – 1967
💻 He’s very conscientious, no STITCH is out of place,
He sits and works to DECODE with a look upon his face…
That shows the pressure’s mounting…he’s ready to embark,
And hit the GRAVELly pavement that will lead him to the park.
Always looking at a deadline, he needs fresh air to breathe,
The WINERY sounds good right now…he’s starting a slow seethe…
Like a KITTEN he feels cowered, his Boss is such a jerk…
How long can he BEMOAN the fact?…Above this guy just lurks!
He has to quit before he cracks, he’s such a nervous wreck…
No more will he put up with this guy BREATHING DOWN HIS NECK! 💻
Good Sunday morning, and welcome to JULY. We start our month with no new words, but perhaps a good mixture of HIGHS and lows. Of our 36 letters today, 1/3 are vowels…Will that prove to be a BEAST or the Least? Let us know: Write in and tell us what word challenged you today…Ok, our cartoon…We find ourselves this morning in the Offices of GIRRAFIC JAMB, a company that supplies Door and Window Jambs, and the LADDERS needed for their installation. We see our featured character, STRETCH, working diligently at his keyboard, recording STEP and EXTENSION LADDER shipments, and trying to get a LEG UP on the workload. But his Boss, the beSPECKtacled HY, looming over him, is being a major pain in the NECK, demanding to see the final numbers. STRETCH is STRETCHED! And the pressure is MOUNTING, as he tells HY that he’s REACHING his limit. I mean, C’mon, this guy HY is constantly…BREATHING DOWN HIS NECK! ..And BOOM! Now how LONG did that take? Good one, David! You’re always REACHING new HEIGHTS!
Ok, eye candy…HY is holding a steaming cup of coffee in his HOOF. Fancy FOOTwork, but a little hard to swallow…He’s wearing a SPOTTED TIE. From a relative perhaps? Family Ties? And in the background we see a CREATURE that seems to resemble the Tasmania Devil. I can’t identify him…It’s going OVER MY HEAD…But the LONG SHOT here? The POST-IT on STRETCH’S Cork Board...”WORK ON RESUME“! SHORT and to the point! So, There you have it, Folks! Done! Have a great day, Everyone! …And it beHOOVES me to mention…Please stay cool…Because is it hot enough around the country? With the temperasure and humidity running NECK and NECK? You bet your GIRAFFE it is! 💻🙋🏻
