Picture Postcard: The Inconvenience Store

22 Feb

February 22, 2023

A new store opened up in my area recently. It’s typical corner place, selling snacks, chips, the usual.

Of course, it does seem rather exclusive, but don’t worry, you don’t need an appointment to get in because, as the sign helpfully points out, walk-ins are welcome.

Reservations are preferred, but walk-ins are welcome too. I am sure they can squeeze you in.

“Hello, Bath Corner Snacks? I would like to schedule an appointment to buy some M+Ms tomorrow. Do you have an opening around 4:00? You say 5:15 is the best you can do? OK, I’ll take it. Excuse me? Why do I need proof of insurance?”

December 31, 2022

Once again, we, the Editors and Staff of Mr. Blog’s Tepid Ride (our motto: Hello? Is anyone out there?) stubbornly persist in our belief that Flash Gordon is still somehow relevant to today’s hip and with-it youth.

(Grrr, those long-haired hippies with their in-line skates, wearing their baseball caps backwards, vaping their doobies all over the place. But I digress.)

For the fourth year in a row, on the cusp of the eve of New Year’s, or something like that, we present the Annual Official Mr. Blog’s Tepid Ride Flash Gordon New Year’s Meme… FROM SPACE!*

* Remember: Accept only officially authorized Mr. Blog’s Tepid Ride Flash Gordon New Year’s Memes… FROM SPACE!
