Maxim of the Week


Overcome with the responsibility of being a new father, 
Lance thought that maybe he would have to give up his Indy band 
and get a regular job.
Maxim:
Life isn't all beer and skittles.

    Although the new baby is cute
    Life is qute funny
    Children cost money
    I guess that my strings will stay mute.

    Your early morning cartoons make me go from bed to verse.

      I see that you've donned your alternate identity along with your dressing gown.

      I think he specializes in Radiohead tunes, played on an acoustic guitar, of course.

    1. Blue Sky,
      I'm not even sure what Skittles are/is! I think a game of some sort, originally? (looking it up I find: Skittles, also known as Ninepins, which was the pre-cursor to ten-pin bowling, has been a popular English pub game since the 17th century. The pins are set up in a square pattern and players attempt to knock them down with a ball. It is still played but not so much as previously.) Is this what you're recalling?

      There's also a popular candy called Skittles. And further research reveals a vodka of the same name.

      Name your pleasure, Blue Sky!

  5. It's quite a shock when we find that out......or whatever the equivalent of beer and skittles is!

    1. Ruby,
      Definitely a rude awakening from our lingering adolescent self-absorption!

  6. Love this one, Lynne! Life has far too little beer and skittles as it is, doesn't it?

      From beer and skittles to the school of hard knocks in no time flat! Ah, but that's a maxim best left for another day.

  7. Oh, that is so sweet! Maybe Lance will graduate to champagne and dark chocolate covered almonds...!
