    The waves crashed over the bow of the tiny boat as the storm hit its peak. Tossed and thrown upon the ocean, the fisherman struggled with the nets.

    The small hot peppers hung from the plant, ready to picked. My basket was almost full and my wife, Mrs. Piper was calling for me to come to dinner. Would I get a full peck picked?

    The polar opposite of myself would be someone who was bi-polar because I am strictly uno-polar. I am always positive.

  • Joe Carey commented on the post, blamed 6 years, 3 months ago

    He blamed her for his lack of feeling. He blamed her for his inability to communicate. He blamed her for the cold feeling in his chest. Why he married her he couldn’t remember. Then he burped and all was better.

    My mother suffers from arthritis and sometimes it makes me worry and fear the day it may afflict me. Having constant pain in my joints is not something I want to have to experience. I feel bad that my mom has to put up with arthritis.

    That man is walking on stilts. This is quite a shocking revelation to come to as you are sitting in your car at a light and the man in question is crossing the street in front of you. Wow. That man is walking on stilts…

  • Joe Carey commented on the post, antithesis 6 years, 4 months ago

    God how I hate getting a word like antithesis when I decide to exercise my incredibly poor writing skills by visiting oneword.com. A word like antithesis creates a mental block that prevents me from even being able to recall the actual meaning of the word and I’m not that stupid. oneword.com you are cruel…

    I kept mumbling my excuse over and over again like it would make it true. I knew I had messed up. I knew what I had done hurt someone I cared about. But I didn’t want to take responsibility. I just kept hoping that repeatly mumbling my lame excuse would make it all go away.

    It is important to build a house out of bricks as opposed to sticks or stones because if you don’t, a wolf will come by and blow it down and eat your pigs. At least that’s what they tell me.

  • Joe Carey commented on the post, salesman 6 years, 8 months ago

    As a business owner, I find myself regularly becoming a salesman for the company. I usually do not like trying to sell something to anyone, but i truly believe we offer a great product as a fair price, so playing the role of a salesman is not so bad.

    There are systems to achieving ones goals. Whether they work or not is always a question. We are meant to question because it is part of a system of achieving an answer.

  • Joe Carey commented on the post, cool 6 years, 8 months ago

    Cool people are seldom as cool as they seem. They are often just being themselves and their “coolness” depends on whether or not they fit your impression of what cool is. So be yourself. Many people find that cool.

  • Joe Carey commented on the post, politician 6 years, 9 months ago

    Politicians are not worth the carbon they use to exist. I believe we have a serious problem with our government and the politicians who are in the pants pocket of every corporation in America who donate money to their campaigns. This will be the downfall of the middle class and America.

  • Joe Carey commented on the post, promise 6 years, 9 months ago

    I so often promise myself I will change to be the person I want to be, but so often I fail to keep that promise. Why do I say I want to be a certain way, to be a better person, but when it comes to executing and being that person, I fail so miserably?

  • Joe Carey commented on the post, barrel 6 years, 9 months ago

    A barrel of fun is a rather peculiar phrase considering that fun is not something that one can easily put into a container of any shape or size. It must come from the Germans who keep fun in the form of bier!

    Five times was the number. Five times he tried to reach the top of the cliff but his strength was gone. He felt himself slipping until he completely lost his strength and plunged into the abyss.

  • Joe Carey commented on the post, living 6 years, 10 months ago

    In living one’s life, it is important to live in a good way. Each day should be devoted to helping others and not focused on the self. When we live as though each day is the last, we live a fuller life.

  • Joe Carey commented on the post, patient 6 years, 10 months ago

    The patient waited patiently in the waiting room with the other patients. The nurse poked her head from behind the door and called, “Mr. Johnson!” I looked around and saw no one move, so I jumped up. Turns out I was hard of hearing and didn’t know it.

  • Joe Carey commented on the post, available 6 years, 10 months ago

    Is this seat available? asked the young lady. He jerked up from his paper to see a short, frumpy looking woman in her mid-30s. Of course it is, he replied.
