CO AT OCA RNH HI OO = “ACHOO-CHOO” TRAIN
Good Morning, Everyone! 🚉 A RAIL OF WOE? 🚉
🎶 Pardon me, Boy…Is that the Chattanooga CHOO CHOO?…Yes, yes track twenty-nine, Boy, you can gimme a shine? …Can you afford to board the Chattanooga CHOO CHOO? I’ve got my fare…And just a trifle to spare…🎶 “Chattanooga Choo Choo” – The Andrew Sisters – 1940’s
🚉 Commuting can be stressful to those who ride the rails,
You’re often crowded into cars…congestion’s what prevails.
You feel yourself within the CRUNCH, it’s usually the norm,
You go in dressed so NEATLY, but you easily transform.
Think wet NOODLE and you will get an idea of the woes…
A SHIFTY guy you’re watching just stands there and blows his nose.
While CUSTOM’s no eye contact, no matter your LOCALE,
Just being packed so tightly most times this does not allow…
So when cold season’s upon us and it now becomes our bane?
You’re destined to be boarding what we call “ACHOO-CHOO”TRAIN! 🚉
We’ve often spoken here about the various ways we all go about solving our puzzles. And there are many…No one way is correct, just as no other way is wrong…Lately, I’ve fallen into the habit of immediately ZEROING in on the cartoon and the answer CIRCLES first…So this morning, as soon as I saw our conductor, TYPHOID GARY, SNEEZING , and noted the quotation marks, I thought RAILS and CHOOs…”A” CHOOS of course, because of the sneezing, and Rails because you only see a Conductor on the Rail LINES, not the Subway TRAINS. A quick glance at the words, showed an “L” in 3 of our words, but just a sole “R”. Figuring I was on the right TRACK, my first STOP was CRUNCH…So FAR so good. But by then, with 🎶Chattanooga Choo Choo🎶 already playing in my head, I’m thinking..Choo Choo Rails? STOP, that’s not right…And then I realized what I needed was a different TRAIN of thought…Oh, I CAUGHT IT! CLANG! CLANG!! …Oh, wait…That was the Trolley…Anyway…With the solution now in hand, I turned to our words…Mascot? Hmm, a little TICK…ET’s CUSTOM. NEATLY, ✔️..LOCALE, ✔️, FISHY? Not to a “T”…So I stared for a second..SHIFTY, ✔️NOODLE, ✔️. Done! NEXT STOP? I checked and besides our words all being Sweet Repeats, I saw that two of them, NEATLY and LOCALE both previously appeared together, on March 26th of 2017. I just thought I’d EXPRESS that fact…So, just to RED CAP…I mean Recap…A TRAIN full of Sneezing Passengers? They’re riding the …“ACHOO-CHOO” TRAIN! Ding! Ding! Good one, David! RAIL good one!
Ok, eye candy…With all of the Passengers CONDUCTing themselves in pretty much the same manner, there’s not much to CHOOS from.. Crazy seeing all these people spreading germs like this though, right? Riding this LOCOmotive? I’m RAILy aFREIGHT of how this may TURN out…But besides the two other cars in the background, with little people visible through the windows, the scenery doesn’t give me much to CHOO on…I think I’ll just CHUG it off for today…So, There you have it Folks, the END OF THE LINE! Have a great day, Everyone! And remember…Being dishonest can only harm your STATION in life…Always looking over your SHOULDER, needing to cover your TRACKS all the TIME..Better to walk a straight LINE and EXPRESS yourself truthFULLy…Yea, That’s the TICKET! 🚉🙋🏻
