HO, HO, HO...MAYAN'S by b. Malin
IT WON'T HAPPEN...
I'm FINALLY back Hubbing again. Where have I been? Well, let's go back to a few weeks after "Hurricane Sandy". So lean forward, grab something to eat, but don't get your Computer dirty, as you get ready for another tale to begin.
Lover Man is walking around the house deep in thought. I say, "What are you thinking about"? He says "the Mayans". I say, sounding puzzled, "The Mayans"? and then I add, "Why"? "Because, he says, sighing a very DEEP sigh, December 21st is right around the corner...the End of the World, according to the Mayan Calendar, and we don't have Flood Insurance". I can't help myself, I start to Laugh. Then I say, "we haven't had Flood Insurance since we bought this house, and we survived Hurricanes, Irene & Sandy with our house intact, except for the 3 feet of water in the "Crawl Space" and needing new Duct work. Which we have taken care of. Of course I agree we should have Flood Insurance, but not because I believe in the Mayan Calendar. I clear my throat, as I say, just hear me out".
My Theory... The younger generation of Mayans were BORED out of their minds! There was NO TV, no Real Entertainment, like Broadway Shows, or the Movies, or Concerts. No Iphones...No Text Messaging...No Electricity...NOTHING! So they began making up a "Calendar" on how long it would take until "Things" would get invented. Much too soon, they ran out of Space. What to do? What to do? The Elder Group of Mayans were Mad... The kids had used up ALL the "Wall Space"! A Mayan Meeting was held, and it was decided they'd pack up and leave in search of "New Wall Space"...And they were Never seen again, because each decided to go their separate ways..."Group Living" for the young, and the not so young, had lost its appeal.
Now Lover Man is Smiling. "So we should still get Flood Insurance". "Of course I say smiling back. and then I add, You do realize that if its true, the World coming to an end and all...what good would the Flood Insurance do?...Think about that one for a moment".
We do get the Flood Insurance, and a week later we take off for Florida, in our Rented, 2013 "Ford Escape", compliments of Geico Insurance and Enterprise Rental Company. The car is a Pleasure to drive, and we decide this is the car we will buy when get to Florida... A day before we are to purchase it, a RECALL comes out..."If the Engine light goes on, GET OUT OF THE CAR...it could EXPLODE"! Ok, ok, we are warned... and are NO longer buying the Ford 2013 Escape.
We finally, with less than 2 weeks to go with our Rental Car, find the Car we want to buy. A 2013 "Kia Sportage". I Love it, Lover Man Loves it, the Salesmen Loves it... He is New Salesman, and it's the first Car he has sold. So he is beyond Happy! It's right off the lot, with nice Amenities...lots of Bells and Whistles...And the Color is "Metallic Silver" in the grayish silver family. And best of All, so far, No Recalls!
Ok, so now you are up to date with me...And speaking of Dates, December 21, 2012 is right around the corner. Do I really think the World will end...Not a Chance. I'm standing by my Theory. Does Love Man still think the World will end...Well he still thinks something might happen...However, he's still saving up to buy a Boat...so what does that tell you!
