Wednesday Reads: Starfish and Pee PeePosted: April 25, 2018
I needed to post something lighthearted today. My mama is in the hospital with internal bleeding, the doctor had her stay overnight while they gave her a blood transfusion. Now we aren’t sure what the next step will be…
So this is going to be an open thread….
Let’s enjoy this song from Prince:
As well as the song’s origin story by Susannah Melvoin…here is just a little taste. Be sure to go to the link and read the whole story. It is special. And you will also find out about the starfish and pee pee line.
Prince and I spent many hours together, either in the studio working, or driving around Minneapolis talking to each other and listening to music. We talked about our histories and our secrets On a few of occasions I told him stories of a 12-year-old girl named Cynthia Rose. My sister Wendy and I knew Cynthia intimately because we shared six years in a classroom with her, plus a bus ride to school It was the Bus rides that I got to know Cynthia.
Cynthia reminds me of my brother Denny. There is a part about Cynthia’s favorite number …
Cynthia never had much interest outside of her own personal space, so watching her was an unedited version of what was going on her head. I’m certain if Cynthia were in school today? she’d still be as interesting and extraterrestrial as she was then. I think Cynthia was dropped off from another world filled with extraordinary images. Images only Cynthia knew the’ meanings behind.
Her Favorite number for Many years was the number 12. I knew this because she’d rock back and forth in her seat asking you if you knew what her favorite number was for the day… It was always shocking to her that you knew what her favorite number was I would inevitably say “I think it’s twelve, right Cynthia?” She was amazed and joyous that you guessed it right. Once more I’d watch how she would ecstatically experience the world.
Denny had a favorite number too…it was a dollar amount….8 dollar. No matter what, anything else you asked him…it usually would come to the question of, how much? And he would always reply: 8 dollar.
Just a couple of things:
What the fucking hell is this:
Is that a joke?
Oh wait, I guess this explains it:

If I am able to add more cartoons to the post I will.
It is open wide.
