POETS Club Drink of the Week: Satan’s Circus

Three Ring Circus

If you have ever been to a three ring circus, and I am sure most of us have, try imagining how you would  keep up with what was going on in all three rings as well as overhead, if  it happened all at once. I am sure you can see how madding  it might be.

I am the Ring Master and that has been my week…


clownsSo, the  name seemed appropriate considering how crazy work has been lately. Walking on a tight rope of time, juggling various clowns to get  jobs done and done right, as well as working hard on My Old House.  So hard in fact that I have done an excellent job of beating up my body, yet again. Thank goodness for hot tubs and massage therapist!

Interestingly,  I don’t seem to be the only one on Mr. Todd’s Wild Ride…  I have heard from multiple friends that they’re on similar, crazy schedules. I don’t know, is Mercury in retrograde or something?!?!?

Alas, for me, things will quiet down a bit very soon, as the condo project is winding down and should be finished up by mid next week. Then it will be back to full time work on re-doing my old house so we can get it rented.

Oh, and the Condo Commando from the Flaming Asshole cocktail… she finally stuck her head out of her condo yesterday, she wanted to know who she could get to replace her windows…

PS…The Satan part,  that equates to the pain I have inflicted on my body… pain is evil… Satan is evil… if you believe that sort of stuff.
