A tale I read

A tale I heard

Comedian Joan Rivers, 80 at the time, on whether she would ever retire:

“Ha. Never. Do what? What fun is this, to wake up and say ‘I don’t have a minute free today?’ It’s fabulous. I had dinner last night with Barbara Walters, who’s an old friend, and looking forward to retirement. I said, ‘You’re crazy.’ I bet Barbara, who is very driven, within two months will say, ‘Ooooh, I’ll do a special.’ She told me, ‘I’m retired. I’m going to have lunch and enjoy myself, I’m going to travel.’ I said, ‘Barbara, call me again in October. It’s nonsense. What are you gonna do? Take your dog for a walk? You’re Barbara Walters, you don’t want to retire. You’re gonna watch one person on TV be an ass and say, ‘I could have done a better job.’’”

A tale I saw

I Built A Shed by Jonny Fluffypunk 

A tale I wrote

They’re on the TV singing 
Twinkle Twinkle Little Star 
with smiles wider than the sky. 

Where do they go
at the end of the day?
What do they say 

to people in the real world? 
They’re on the TV dancing 
with eight dead eyes. 

The hours are long 
when you’re forced to wear 
something that doesn’t suit you. 

A tail I like
