Spring Flowers May Showers bring water to your wilted geraniums and may worms create a delicious compost." Judd found it harder and harder to write for Hallmark. Always eager to push the envelope, Hallmark's greeting card business wasn't worth the paper it was printed on. Judd had to get out of there before he wrote another sappy "Get Well Soon” card. Judd felt his destiny was meaningful writing, like restaurant menus or supermarket flyers. The Hallmark gig had allowed him to save a bit, so with $10.78 in his wallet He returned to that one stationary store near the food court & purchased that dusty leatherbound journal that he had seen two years ago when getting a gift for Annie. Momentary sad ness erupted from his brown eyes, trickled down his cheeks, & plopped onto the cashier's fingers as she extended his $2.13 in change. Embarrassed, he glanced up. Annie! "Sorry, Hon," she said as she dropped the change into hand, "but my name's Inez. Now move along, I have other customers." He clutched the $2.13 and stared in disbelief at her. The 3rd guy in line had no compunction about elbowing him away from the "business" portion of the register counter. "Yeah, dude, take your $2.13 and let Inez do her job", his elbow said, with a strange sudden pair of speaking lips. Everyone gasped. "Aw dont be so shocked, that elbows just sayn wut we're all thinking!" ...said his neck. Thus began the horror.

Wow, that is where we’re at, the “every body part for itself” point. Thanks Obama.

^ Nothing a little elbow grease won’t fix.

The grease must be from all the elbow macaroni the elbow is eating.

I blame it on the antidepressants Judd started to take when he lost Annie. Side effects! Poor guy…
