Time For The 10 of 2020

 


Seriously, who puts a toilet on stairs? You humans are weird. I mean unless you are the perfect height, you either miss or hit your head on the ceiling. Or look like some demented frog when you sit down. The cat will keep the lid shut on this thing, much like how many wish to shut the lid on 2020 and watch it all flush down the toilet. But you may not want to do that just yet, as 2021 will be more of the same. Why flush twice? All right, before the Blabbermouth-ed one declares we are obsessed, let's get on to 10 things learned in 2020 that she wanted to do with the cat.

1. Essential and Indefinitely

Two words you only heard sparingly before 2020, unless you truly were essential, but once 2020 hit, they became the new go to words. 

2. Toilet Paper is Gold

People didn't rob for money. They robbed and pillaged for toilet paper. Really? If you have no food to eat, do you still need toilet paper?

3. Gullible

This is known, but 2020 proved it all the more. Put the nail in the coffin for the human race. Sooo many are sheep. See a Youtube video and suddenly it's the truth. Listen to some blowhard orange buffoon and suddenly it is the truth. Really? Whoever believes 5G caused COVID needs to go live on the moon. Actually, that is too close. Ship em to Mars.

4. Unmasked

People go wacko when you ask them to put a simple piece of cloth on their face. Like you asked them to wear Grandma's dirty drawers on their face or something. Yet humans can dress up in spandex and go to cons or dress up in masks for Halloween. Or you know...furries!!! But a mask...nope! It was directed by Hell itself.

5. Transportation Rules The World

Without Truckers, shippers, etc. no one would get anything. Everything would dry up in a few weeks and that would be that. Until you can go all BTTF and create stuff outta nothing, even the smartest and most essential person is screwed without them. Unless you already have your bunker fully stocked, then you are good for a few years anyway.

6. Capitalization Withstands All

 If you wanna make money, just wait for a pandemic. Hoard a bunch of TP and cleaning products and sell them at a premium. Not really new, but it does further show that there is no depth to which some won't sink.

7. Make Believe Is Still Alive

"Adults" think they leave all that make believe behind once they grow out of childhood, well 2020 sure proved that wrong. At least kids make up things to have fun and learn. "Adults" just make up things to suit their own agenda or belief so they can do what they wanted to do anyway. Pfffft.

8. No Money? Pffft No Issue

What's another few trillion in debt? If a country runs out then they just print more and more and more. Throw billions at the issue and hope something sticks. Worry about future problems in the future. The human way!

9. Double The Fun


Didn't think we'd make fun of humans for all 10, did you? Why get one mutt when you can get two? Learn from each other. Keep each other company. Make double the mess. Double the work. Double the love. Double the poop. Yeah. Just double. Don't you want two mutts now?

10. Don't Take Those Close for Granted

2020 has proved that you never know what might be around the corner and that it may be something that flushes all your plans down the toilet, so don't wait to spend time with people you care about. Even if you use common sense and do it over Zoom or the like, it still counts and keeps those you care about alive and/or healthy. Things can change on a whim and you may regret the little moments you miss. So don't miss them!

And there we go. That is that for the things learned for 2020. What? Did you expect them all to be cheery? Pfffft. You humans don't make that easy with your stupidness and other idiotic things you do. And we thought planking was as bad as it could get. Not really, but we are trying to give you the benefit of a doubt. Really trying. I guess you'll have to go to Jax if you want 10 all touchy feely ones. Just don't touch for real. That spreads germs. Not like you humans care though. Have to ra ra ra about a piece of cloth. I'll leave you with it while I take a nap. Maybe you'll accidentally choke on the cloth. What?

2020 is almost done. Time for more of the same in 2021.

  1. Your last line said it all Pat :) If I never heard the line "we are all in this together" again, I would be so very happy. I saw a meme that said every job is essential which basically everyone who has a job considers it essential to pay their bills. I still don't get the rush on toilet paper. I still question a lot out there but I don't consider myself a sheep and I detest masks but wear them when I'm supposed to. I put no faith in them :)

    Happy New Year :) I truly hope it is a better one but I don't see that happening :)

    1. lol yeah. That line has been said to death too. Essential as you have to eat indeed. The tp thing was just eye roll worthy. And yeah, masks suck and they may not work as great as some claim, but it isn't like one is chopping a finger off.

      Yeah. Doubt it will be better.

  2. and you gave THE perfect summation of 2020 and on into 2021. And so it goes on and on and on.....

    Happy New Year?? The question mark is the key to life. Take care and thanks for your blog posts this year.

  3. I knew you were obsessed, but I had ZERO clue that you literally have toilet thrones! Stairway to heaven??? Nope, the cat gets a stairway to his TOILET!!! Obsession is no longer an obsession. It's become close to a poop stalker status. That aside, I'm very proud that you stuck to 10 this time. You're right about the transportation. The whole world came to a screeching halt when things couldn't be delivered. Ironically, this past semester I took a course on Globalization and transportation was the main driver in that course. It's something we all take for granted, but it's the most essential of the businesses.

    1. lmao well obsessed with poop beats stalkers of actual people. 10 on the nose, figured I'd give you one good thing this year from the cat lol Without transportation we'd be in The Walking Dead or something.

  4. There is a lot about 2020 that needs to be remembered and a lot to forget too!

  5. Well, this made me laugh, which is saying something lately!! Can we also add the word, ‘unprecedented’ to number 1? As in, Bijoux never wants to experience an unprecedented anything ever again!

    I will never understand all the selfishness that came to light in 2020. Between those who won’t wear masks to the hoarders, it’s unreal. And now we have dumbasses in Congress and others getting ahead of front line healthcare workers in the vaccine line.

    Make Believe Is Still Alive . . . Omg, that is hilarious, Pat! As someone who has had to deal with a paranoid schizophrenic for a mother, it’s nice that the rest of the world has joined me in the front row!

    Sorry so dark today. It’s been a rough few months here. Hope your 2021 is normal.

    1. Good that it was good for a laugh at least. Yeah. That can be added. Ugg on and on they say that too. Enough life experience and unprecedented experience here too.

      Humans are me me me when shit really hits the fan. At least most. Dumbasses abound, sadly.

      lmao yeah, the whole world is in make believe land these days.

      Hopefully the next few months will be better, but doubt it, as there are still so many assholes out there not listening to anything but make believe crap. Normal and 2021 probably won't be a thing. Try me again in 2022 lol

  6. So true about #3 and #7. People believe what they want to believe whether it's true or not, and reshape the reality to fit their narrative.
    I've never seen a toilet on stairs! Must have a nice view :-)

    Replies
    1. Yep. They want their narrative to be right and will go to great lengths to make it so. haha nah, just a sink and a wall.

  7. I learned we were gullible in March when we let the media terrify us in hoarding and the government to shut us down without a protest.

    When that toilet overflows it will make a pretty waterfall. LOL!

  8. Well, now, you summed up this year that was (I can hardly WAIT to talk about it in past tense...) pretty doggone spot on. For a pathogical optimist like me, it was disheartening to see how utterly selfish and cruel some people have been this past year... but it's also uplifting to see how many people have rallied in the name of decency and empathy. I dunno if 2021 is going to be better than this year or not, but I'm hopeful. I don't know how to be any other way... 'tis in the nature of the beast.

    Take care, and Happy New Year! (Or at least, a Less-Crappy-Than-This-Year New year...)

  10. This year we saw the great toilet paper hoarding. It was ridiculous.

    ReplyDelete
  11. This year showed me how truly stupid people are. Humans just don't deserve to be on this earth. Hoard the toilet paper and sanitizer, bitch about cloth on your face, can't go to church but can riot and protest without consequences, government telling us what we can't do, but get caught doing it themselves. I'm so over all this nonsense. Hope 2021 knocks some sense into people.

    1. lol it may take a 10000 years to knock sense into people. So 2021 has its work cut out for it. People are just so whiny and stupid.

    2. I'm not holding out much hope for people to be any smarter this year. Or in my lifetime, really. Too many idiots in this population and it only grows in number by the day.

    3. The idiots are the ones breeding more too. So never ending.

  13. As you know, #10 hits close to home. I lost several family members to this blasted virus. One of them in his early 40's in perfect health before he got it. I think that's why it drives me bananas when I see people refusing to wear a mask or wearing it incorrectly to prove a point.

    The other day, I saw a lady wearing it over her nose. Just her nose. Her mouth was uncovered so she could talk freely. *eye roll*

    Wishing you a happy, healthy, New Year!

  14. Things really can change on a dime. Some of the changes we have seen this year, I never thought would take place. I am babysitting my niece this week and I showed her the cat on the toilet, that's on the stairs. Of course, being 6, she found it all quite hilarious. :) I saw one other toilet on stairs, years and years ago at a friend's house. I forgot all about it until I saw this one!! Happy New Year to you and the fam, including the pets, of course too!

    1. Yeah, never thought they would take place either, but here we are. haha guess it isn't the only toilet on stairs then. Toilet humor can be a winner many a time haha Hope you all have a Happy New Year too.

  15. Indeed we cannot take those close for granted. Even if we are stuck at home trying to stay home due to the pandemic, we have to stay in touch somehow.....it has been a hard year, one which I will be glad to say good-bye to. Always appreciated your blog, Pat. You have been a loyal cyber friend for a while now....thank you. And Happy New Year!

    1. Sure been a good decade or so since we started following indeed. Hopefully this year won't be worse, but not looking good yet.

  16. Well said my friend. So many gems of wisdom and I totally agree we cannot take those we hold dear for granted. No one knows what tomorrow will bring. We are all vulnerable. I had
    to laugh about the the TP. I do have a small stash here. The one thing I have learned in the
    last year is how selfish people can be. This includes my own family and friends. It feels as
    if we reached that point in time where the line was drawn in the sand. So sad...You know me
    I choose the frequency of love always even when I don't see eye to eye with others.

    1. Ps - Happy New Year even though I know it's just another day, I just want to forget about 2020.

    2. Yep. Sure see how close friends/family can be selfish too. These days all the crap comes to the surface. A good stash of tp is fine with the hoarders about lol

      Happy new digit day

  17. I'd thought about doing a best-of or what-did-I-learn, but had next to no leisure computer/phone time the last six or eight weeks; had to literally throw a lot of canned stuff onto my blog and see where it landed!!! I think you captured 2020 pretty well in a nutshell. Wow, it's been so long, I didn't know I could still rhyme!!!

    1. haha the rhyme just flows back. Always there like toys in Santa's sack. Yeah, no time is a big one, can sure bring blogging to a halt.
