There have been several hurricanes that hit the NC coast in the past years that almost every stairway over the dunes down to the beach has had the bottom section replaced. The Surf City pier has even had a big section of its railing replaced.
I wake up several times during the night and I am usually able to get back to sleep. I woke up around 6:15 in my beach cabin and it was still dark. Full dark. I rolled over and went back to sleep for about an hour. When I woke up the full morning light was streaming in all the windows. There was no transition between dark and light.
The holiday lights on the poles in beach towns are more than just snowflakes. There were seahorses, sand dollars, seastars, lighthouses and even a pirate or two.
I ate the latest apple and it was delicious. The Cosmic Crisp was designed to overtake the apple market. The Red Delicious was the best-selling apple for years, until it was replaced by the Gala apple because, frankly, it tasted better. More delicious.
The Cosmic Crisp, which is both a trademarked name and a licensed apple variety, is really crisp. This is what biting into an apple should feel like in your mouth. It is also tasty. There is a balance between sweet and tart that only scientists could have developed. I don’t know how they did it (Google it for yourself), but besides the taste and the consistency, this apple has some shelf-life staying power.
I bought it because I wanted to try it. I probably won’t buy it again until the price comes down.
I dreamed that I was walking home from work in New York City. I was going to West 82nd Street. The streets were not very crowded. There were several burlesque dancers on the sidewalk. I needed to get across the park as it was getting dark. I was waiting for the most efficient spot to call an Uber. The Metropolitan Museum of Art was on the wrong side of the street when I turned north on 5th Avenue, meaning the entire orientation of Manhattan was reversed.
Is it really possible to just buy one pear or do you have to buy two?
I ran out of hand soap and dish soap at the same time.
There is a place in Florida where a series of bridges and elevated roadways over a bay come together and take you to another place. It’s as if you get this bridge in Miami and suddenly you are in Tampa. It is a time-space continuum dream thing and gets you to a convergence point with only a short drive. There’s also a restaurant there.
I have dreamed about this place before. Or maybe I just dreamed that I did.
I must be in rural America because I saw a sign advertising Conceal Carry Gift Certificates. Nothing says peace on earth and goodwill towards others like giving your loved one a firearm and the ability to hide it under their shirt.
What causes a developer to name a street Red White & Blue Road? Besides extreme patriotism and a hatred of punctuation (because the post office will remove it if you try to use it).
