Personal Favorites ...


There’s a scene in movie “Being There” in which Chauncey Gardner (played by Peter Sellers) tells you everything you need to know about the character with his words, “I like to watch.”

Well, I like to write.

If nobody but Mom read my posts, I would still enjoy writing.

Still, who wants to toil in obscurity? With this in mind, I write about things that I hope will interest others.

But not always.

I periodically pursue what I consider worthwhile topics knowing they’re not exactly click bait. Other times, I’ll fall into the trap of writing to amuse myself which is how I came to dominate the Google search term, “esoteric smart ass.”

What follows are some of my personal favorites that never gained much of a following:
