Based on a Breakable News galloping poll of wild horses in Arizona
of couples where one or both call the other their best friend. Don’t be shocked if divorce soon follows. Those wild ponies: always with the jokes!
of homes where cats hang out in the front window all day sleeping. There’s trouble inside. And the kitty is likely depressed and/or angry.
of neighbor dogs who run up to you jumping all over. They are not getting enough love in their home.
of neighbors, and their guests, who look like Proud Boys or Girls. They probably are.
of cars that come right up to your bumper at red lights. They probably have guns on board and are thinking of shooting you, especially if you also have bumper stickers such say We support Organic Farmers or Bee Kind.
of cute little kids, often boys, whose father allows them to ride fast electric toy trucks in driveways or on pavements. The father is probably a Proud Boy.
of publishers who write offering to publish your book. They won’t say it right off, but it’ll cost you thousands and they are basically vanity presses.
of people who, six months after the election, are still waving Trump flags. They are mostly likely clinically psychotic.
of big conventional chain food markets. Trumpsters often shop there, as do serial mass killers, and child kidnappers.
of clowns who walk about town in their costumes. Need I say more?
of used car salesmen. More than likely they are woefully behind in their rent, and, so, are likely to be mass serial killers.
of anyone who calls him or herself a Republican or a QAnon supporter, or, as is often the case, both. They likely have kidnapped children in their basement.
of about half the population of America (which half we don’t know). They think the pandemic is a hoax, refuse vaccination, think Trump won the election, and will not hesitate to cough on you as you pass them by, saying they were just joking. I would avoid such so-called people. They are likely serial mass murderers…and have kidnapped children in their basement.
Otherwise, no problem. Enjoy the day. Be happy. And on occasion, get in your car and SCREAM.
Oh, one more…
of authors who always seem to be promoting their last book. Like Into the Woods…and Beyond with a foreword by Thomas Moore.
Bernice Moore says
Just bought your book, Stephen. Glad you continue to write and contribute to our complex, distressed world.
Stephen Altschuler says
Thanks, Bernice. I hope you enjoy it. The writing does continue, with another book close to publication. A pandemic bright spot is that it’s given me the time and energy to write more. Still, I’m happy it’s on the way out and hopefully will soon be over. Hope you and family are well. Btw, if you like the book, consider writing a customer review at Amazon. It would help the promotion efforts.
JoAnn Green says
Hi, Stephen ~ I’m so looking forward to reading Woods. But why was I under the impression I’d receive a book or ebook by now for my donation to your fund-raiser ? (Congrats on that success, btw). Was it dreaming or wishful thinking? : )
Stephen Altschuler says
The signed book is enroute, JoAnn, though it may take awhile. Thank you so much for your donation. Hope you enjoy it, and hope all is well with you and family.
