Inside the Mind of Isadora


I’m Addicted

WARNING – An unusual post for me – Joke may be a bit BLUE


Today is Wednesday in these here parts of Florida.  I’m mentioning this for those of you who reside in other places.

Yesterday, Tuesday, I realized that I’m addicted to my tech toys.

My electric was off which meant nothing was working.

Yes, I did pay my bill.

Yes, we’ve had some very, very high winds because of tropical storm Earl. He decided to by-pass my area but the rains

must have flooded power lines.

Candlelight is nice for a romantic evening.

But, no phone, , no cell, no computer, no television – Tuesday night is America’s Got Talent – I need to vote for the best talent.

Begrudgingly, I took out a book to read on my Kindle which has a small light besides the bright screen.

I wasn’t happy.

I wanted to catch-up on some blogs; I wanted to post something. I wanted to check-up on my kids and grandkids on FB.

Then, I realized how awful that was.

At one time, a book or a mind expanding scrabble game would have taken precedence over electronics.

I wanted a pick-me-up. I took a joke book from my office book shelf and with a flashlight started to recite a joke to hubby.

Then, he recited one back to me. Before we knew it, we were laughing hysterically.

Perhaps, the glass of wine – Mmmm .. maybe, two – helped.

For your laughing pleasure … here is one joke that had me laughing hysterically.

Of course, besides the wine, it may be funny because I went to Catholic school.

Enjoy …



Sky - Clouds

Three nuns who had recently died were on their way to heaven. At the pearly gates they were met by St. Peter.

Around the gates there was a collection of lights and bells.

St. Peter stopped them and told them that they would each have to answer a question before they could enter through the pearly gates.


 St. Paul: “What were the names of the two people in the garden of Eden?”

1st nun: “Adam and Eve.

The lights flashed the bells rang and in she went through the pearly gates.

St. Paul: “What did Adam eat from the forbidden tree ?”

2nd nun: “An apple.

The lights flashed the bells rang and in she went through the pearly gates.

St. Paul: “What was the first thing Eve said to Adam ?”

3rd nun: After a few minutes of thinking she says “Gosh, that’s a hard one!”

The lights flashed …

My Nightmare

Flash Fiction 2- wpid-photo-20150907210618095

I couldn’t sleep a wink all night. Shoe shopping is thrilling!                                                                                                                                               At first light, I showered and dressed. There wasn’t a moment to spare.
I’d found the perfect dress the day before. I knew exactly where to find the ideal shoes to go with it.
Why hadn’t I purchased them together?
Driving in the downpour was blinding. I forged on.
As quickly as my stylish wedged shoes could carry me, I went straight to where the shoes had been the day before.
I was shocked. Disheartened. It can’t be. Everything’s rearranged.
Is it that time, already?
My shopping nightmare.
