Welcome fellow Lappers!
Gheesh! That doesn’t sound right.
Some other blogs have cute nicknames for their readers, so…you know…we thought we would do the same…but nothing is really working.

Never mind, forget all that and welcome.
Here is what is happening this week:
Below is a topic submitted by the blog, Two On A Rant.
Join us over the next seven days as our team of world class, award winning, highly trained, practically famous in over 27* different countries, writers take on that topic.
(FYI: None of us has read each other’s work. It will be new to us as well.)
So sit back, grab a cup of coffee and a seat belt, and enjoy as Long Awkward Pause presents their thoughts on:
*29 to be exact
I thought of a topic at 3am this morning when insomnia came for her nightly visit.
The return of the Twinkie, an insult to food.
What is the best way to answer an insult the “giver” thinks is humorous?
1. Throw a tantrum?
2. Throw a vase you hate at the insulter?
3. Throw the insult back in his face?
Number 3 is a great deal more satisfying. Take, for example, the comment my husband made when my friend Vickie said she liked Twinkies.
We were discussing the return of the Twinkie (Described by nydailynews.com as, “…. lighter, leaner and last even longer.”)
I said, “I don’t like Twinkies.” (Mushy, overly sweet, disgusting lumps of flour and chemicals).
He asked if I liked Hoho’s. (Waxy, messy, disgusting lumps of chocolate, flour and chemicals).
He was trying to be funny.
That’s when I said I preferred “Jerky.”
No, I’m not the Hoho type. I tried it in 1991 (years before my husband and I met). Man, was that exhausting! After the smoke cleared I said, “Never again.”
I’ve had enough Jerky for a while. Some things aren’t worth overdoing.
