What a Wick: the last 7 days in 19 (18th to 24th September, 2010)


“You boung to leave your house looking like that?”

Do you believe that a vagrant said that to a friend of mine when she stepped out on an errand one Sunday morning? Yes, she admitted that she’d just removed her  weave the night before and that she’d just rolled off her bed, but to get dissed like that by a vagrant….Whoa! Made me think…maybe vagrants are laughing at us while we’re busy pitying and scorning them. Why do we think that all homeless people are unhappy? There may be some who count it a blessing not to have to worry…

  8. …About unwanted guests: A British teen had to cancel her party because she mistakenly invited the entire Facebook community to her birthday bash, and got 21,000 attendance confirmations.
  9. …About politicians being real with the electorate: In Sweden the election report shows that some people voted for Donald Duck, the king and God in the recent general elections.
