Does Anybody Out There Twitter?

Oh, Lordy, I am WAY OVER 40......WHY did I just sign up for Twitter? I thought twitter was when you got nervous and excitable and was said to be "all - a - twitter".

After I signed up I asked if it was just for use with cell phones. I have a cell phone but it is one of those inexpensive tracfones. I certainly don't want a bunch of folks sending me text messages - man, that could get expensive and use up my minutes that I am saving in case I need to call 911 for an ambulance. As a senior citizen, I think about things like that.

So, you can see now why I'm "all-a-twitter" about Twitter! The little blank square is where you're supposed to type in "what are you doing now" mean, right now? Well, if I'm typing in that little white space then...THAT's what I'm doing......... or do they mean what WAS I doing (putting my teeth in, multi-tasking - reading a book while resting on the throne) or what I am going to be doing when I finish typing in this little white space (taking pills with a glass of milk, musing about whats for brunch and dinner, listing some new treasures on or BISI) So many things I could type. Does anybody REALLY WANT to read about my day that is full of senior moments?

Do you really think some tech savvy person is going to be impressed with my musings?

Oh, senior there's a current topic........

"WHERE is my SUNDAY paper?!" The irate customer calling the newspaper office loudly demanded, wanting to know where her Sunday edition was.

"Madam", said the newspaper employee, "today is Saturday. The Sunday paper is not delivered until tomorrow, on SUNDAY".

There was quite a long pause on the other end of the phone, followed by a ray of recognition as she was heard to mutter, "Well, shit... so that's why no one was at church today".


Now, what was I talking about....................I it.

These are some neat things I added this week to my stores. Please check my stores out - I know you will find a bargain........

OH, NOW I remember....what is all the twitter about Twitter about? This is something I need to know, now that I have a Twitter account and don't know why..............
Where the heck did I put my glass eye...........
