I had a very weird dream last night. Lunch time was almost over and I walked into a workplace cafeteria where they were deep frying live hogs in a big pool, kinda like how you cook lobsters except instead of boiling/steaming them, the hogs were deep fried in peanut oil. One hog got loose with really brown crispy skin and the workers and everybody else acted like it was no big deal. The hog ran head first into a wall and died.
I heard the term “tableau” last night on ‘Modern Family’. I’ll be honest, I had to look it up.
‘Survivor’ – I’ve never seen Jeff Probst so ticked off, that one tribe try to play him the fool and he didn’t like that one iota.
