Day Late, Dollar short, Again

And Who Do I Owe the Dollar To?

malingershoe1 malingershoe1 malinger3

I feel more of a malingerer, more remiss in my self-imposed duties by neglecting updating terrycolon.com (despite its almost total dearth of readership) than in not doing the laundry; you know, a real task and not digital virtual chore. Either I’ve got my priorities mixed up, or because folks across the webbie globe can tell if the site is behind times while no-one will ever know if my boxer briefs are beyond their wash-by date. Besides, I have my waning has-been reputation to uphold.

Then again, maybe I’m just the world's worst procrastinator. Though come to think of it, wouldn’t being the worst procrastinator mean I’d do everything in a timely fashion? Putting things off too long would make me a good procrastinator, right?

It’s the First Unofficial P.G. Wodehouse Day

Also Known as June First


So, despite the weak imitation (sorry), we celebrate 100 years, or whatever it is, of Wooster and Jeeves stories. So go read a P.G. Wodehouse book. Don’t have one? Buy one. Too cheap to buy one? Borrow one at the local lending library. Or borrow one from a friend. None of your circle of friends have any P.G. Wodehouse books? Get better friends.

A Short, Short, Short Story; In Fact a Paragraphic Tale

sharkLeg sharkLeg sharkMan

Edmund had somehow gotten it into his brain, such as it was, that he had become, not unlike like Gregor Sampsa, some kind of shark, not of the noted deep-sea variety, but a rarer fresh-air type, trolling the lawns of the immediate area. The neighbors, giving him a wide berth, stared askance at such a spectacle, all the while harboring deep suspicions about the disappearance of their Pomeranian.

It’s Frivolous Wednesday

coin3 coin1 coin2

Ever wonder why is a coin toss “heads or tails”? Look at your typical coin; One side has a head, the other side has something-or-other than a head. You get one head, not heads. Or one something-or-other than a head, not more than one. So why the plural “heads or tails” when it seems it should be “head or tail.”

On the other hand, the other side really, why tails? Heads I get; Coins often have a person depicted in profile on one side, i.e., a head. Tails I don’t get; I’ve never seen a coin with a tail on the other side. Buildings, scenes, animals, crests and stuff like that, yes. But a tail, no. How did the something-or-other than a head ever come by that term?

This is the kind of thing retirees with lots of time to kill think about. And create animation for. And then inflict it all on unsuspecting web viewers.

This Week’s Word of the Day

cuck2 cuck1 cuck3 cuck4 cuck5 cuck6

cuckold (kŭk′ əld) noun, A man whose wife is unfaithful. transitive verb, To make a cuckold of.

The word cuckold comes from the cuckoo bird. Not that the bird made up the word, all it can say is “cuckoo cuckoo,” rather the word cuckold was inspired by the cuckoo’s lifestyle. And I don’t mean living in clocks and cuckooing on the hour day and night. See, the cuckoo lays its eggs in other birds’ nests, presumably while the other birds aren’t looking, and let’s the other poor birds raise the chicks while the cuckoo sneaks away and goofs off, or whatever it is these lazy birds do.

Now then about that silly animation. If I have to explain it, you won’t like it.

Too Many Head Writers Spoil the daily


So far the staff here at terrycolon.com has not been very productive for 2021. But the year is still young. Unlike the staff which is still old. Elderly even. All the same, I’m hoping to whip them into shape soon. If possible. As you can see, they’re not looking too lively. Or even alive now that I look closer. Whatever the case, I haven’t given up entirely yet. Stress on the yet.
