Homeward bound

The market day in one of the neighbouring towns was finally over and this gang was heading back to their village. It was a good day, they sold everything and that journey home was going to be easy with that cart empty and those pockets full.

My thoughts on Irma

Everyone was watching those videos of Irma raging through the Caribbean and Florida.

I know that those short videos made some people think about the victims of the hurricane. Some thought about all the cool science behind the hurricanes and what we know and what we don't know and all those facts and statistics. Some raged about global warming and Trump. And I thought "Wow, it would be so cool to take a piss down the wind there now, you could reach so far. And what a bad idea pissing in the wind would be. Although all the piss that ends on you will probably be power washed off you in a matter of seconds anyway."

I then thought that unfortunately this probably tells one everything one needs to know about my level of intellectual sophistication, maturity and class. In my defence I will mention that I had two big watermelons by myself before watching those clips.
