And don’t forget, it’s a day of international solidarity for workers who make the world go ’round
By Bob Berwyn
Good morning and welcome to VoiceOver, the world’s only column that is feeling rather ebullient on this fine spring day, after having spotted several bluebirds and some fuzzy baby ducks. In our world, this means spring has definitely sprung, Despite the rather chilly weather that’s prevailed recently, we KNOW that the season for cruising in shorts and open-toed shoes is just around the corner.
Of course when we went to dust off the flip-flops we found that the new pup had chewed off one of the toe straps, which is a problem in terms of getting the flip-flops to stay on your feet. So we got a new pair, and now we are ready! We’re feeling pretty sure that we’re going to go straight from winter to summer this year, so forget all about that wishy-washy transition stuff and break out the cut-offs!
By the way, does anyone still wear cut-offs? We’re talking about the Real Thing here, not that store-bought, $39.99 Nordstrom’ “faux” casual wear. We mean where you wake up one day and, realizing it’s too warm to wear long pants, you just impulsively grab those faded, comfy Levis and a pair of scissors and hack away. What a liberating feeling! We highly recommend it to everyone as a way to celebrate May Day. Just try and get the lengths the same on both legs, so that you don’t have to go back and even them up, otherwise you might end up with a pair of hot pants, which could be good, or it could be bad. It all depends. We’re not making any value judgments here, we’re just sayin’ there are certain people that can wear hot pants, and other people who should never, ever even consider the idea. (more…)
