First one foot, then the other.

It’s like the Hokey Pokey up in here.

I realize I’ve been fobbing you off with the most low-effort Inktober ever, but I’m still not feeling 100%. It’s been kind of nice knowing exactly what I had to post for two weeks, especially while I’ve been feeling ick.

Hey! I recognize that left foot!

What do you think you’re doing fobbing yesterday’s foot off on us!

Day old foot! I shall complain to the proprietor-ess!

We expected fresh feet! Not sad day old sole!

Don’t work yourself into pneumonia over something you’re not even getting paid for 😷 😰 🥶 🤧

Tip: to get emojis in Windows 10, put the cursor where you want, go WinKey + . (windows key and period) and click on the emojis you want…they get inserted at the cursor.

Low-effort? It is in the nature of being talented that less effort need be expended to achieve superior results.

You achieve superior results, Stoaty, yes you do!

p.s. @DurnedYankee – The left foot is the new foot, it’s the right foot that’s recycled. If you look at the drawing in a mirror while standing on your head it will all become clear! (-;

Bwaaahahahahahah Emoji power.

And if you’re old, try windows key and the plus key.
You can press them if you’re young too I suppose.
If any young people actually lurk around here.

Now get off my lawn! 🤓

I feel like Salieri looking at Mozart’s first draft – with no corrections, revisions, or fixes.

Except that I can’t do anything like that, even with massive effort.

BTW… OCoDW? I crave holding it in my hands, just as agent GARBO craved holding the Iron Cross he was awarded by the Germans. (For – no kidding – his brilliant work in uncovering Allied preparations to attack at Calais. The Germans were suckers.)

@DurnedYankee …careful of the EmojiPolice: https://www.reddit.com/r/EmojiPolice/ …they’re on the prowl.

I’m old enough that I usually just use :+) for smileys :+) (I don’t usually put the plus sign but SWeasy’s blog converts them).

@QuasiModo – You don’t get your emoticons forcibly converted if you tilt them the other way! (-: (-; /-: O-8

@Uncle Al…good tip! (:

Beware: more than one link in a comment is apt to earn you a trip to the spam filter, where you will remain -- cold, frightened and alone -- until I remember to clean the trap. But, hey, without Akismet, we'd be up to our asses in...well, ass porn, mostly.
