The Ten Word - Get Some Rest
"No more splurging on deep fried Spam sandwiches and ice cream cones for late night meals." Brian thought to himself. "My insomnia is already problematic and that food combination just turns my few moments of sleep into nothing more than a bizarre dream fest." First it was a flower girl swimming through a pool of milk in the middle of the local orphanage, then it was the lyrics of that David Bowie song playing over and over in his head. "Turn and face the strange, cha-cha-changes..." He knew the second dream was was brought on by the continual political adds that were running on the television while he slept, but the first one still baffled him. "Man, could I use a good night's sleep. Maybe a nice warm cup of cactus tea will help."
The Mini - Party Time
There once was a man named John, Denver born originally, who now lived in Hollywood, CA. Since moving out west, he'd learned about swinging from a star named Poppy Seed Sprinkle. One of his favorite ways of showing up at these parties with Sprinkles was in drag, racing from one couple to the next in his heels and feather boa. After leaving one encounter he looked down at the floor and exclaimed, "Hey, I think your diagram fell out!"
"Oh bloody hell," Sprinkles chimed in, "he's drunk again. He meant to say, diaphragm!"
