Birds In Bushes Spying On Tushes?

So they say a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush. Hmmm on that saying today I will shush. Not quite as dumb as kill two birds with one stone. That one too I'll leave alone. For let's make a deal. Come and spin the wheel.

Searching for a job?
Searching for a car?
Maybe a house to rob?
The later you may not get far.

Do you pick and choose?
Do you just say yes?
What have you to lose?
Like some weird game of chess.

Need that job to live,
But it may surely suck.
No one is going to give,
So you can't pass the buck.

Need that car to drive.
Or you could take the bus.
So you can still survive,
Even if the bus makes you fuss.

A house to rob?
We wouldn't recommend.
For you may get a celly named Bob,
And he may force you to umm bend.

Do you take the first one?
Do you search around?
More lucrative may be spun,
But can you afford for it to be found?

The offer looks great.
But a better one may come.
Seconding guessing is a trait,
That could leave you numb.

Like cold on the street.
A street with no heat.
That wouldn't be neat.
So do you hit delete?

Hindsight is 20/20?
That much is true.
Present can screw you plenty,
But the past is there in view.

A take it and run?
A take it and grouch?
A wait for something more fun?
Or do you just sit on the couch?

The cat got the questions rolling today. Sometimes you just have to take what comes your way. There may be a better deal, job, house to rob or umm buy later on but can you afford to wait for that greener lawn? Will it ever even come? Could make you end up numb. But maybe you'll find some green grass. You just may have to sleep on it's green mass. That would not be fun to come to pass. Although I don't mind eating it with my little rhyming ass.

Later all, have a nice fall.

  2. Well, sometimes I ponder a decision
    and try to take in the full vision
    then rush into something I will regret
    work I must do, to stay out of debt

    It's fall, leaves blowing in a squall....

  5. The righ deal, what a steal
    Don't steal, you'll have to kneel

    Make proper deals save the blushes
    The choices aplenty
    Avoid the anxiety
    Not to jump in blindly in a rush

  10. Just check the choices,
    Then make your pick.
    'Cause analysis paralysis,
    Just makes me sick.

  13. I believe in taking things slow
    when one makes big purchases, ya know.
    people panic or jump in to fast
    that brings on debt and regret that can last.

  21. Sometimes you have to take that risk and see if a better opportunity comes around. I've held out on offers twice this month in hopes that another would come through, and in both cases, it did. But, like the song says, You gotta know when to hold em, know when to fold em, know when to walk away, know when to run....

  25. You're right, Pat. Sometimes you just have to take what comes your way and make the most of it.

    I remember one major turning point in my life when I had to take a minium wage job as a receptionist at an oil company called Honey Bear Petroleum. Its vice president hawked oriental carpets on late night tv in Calgary. Everything that is good in my life today hinged on my taking that job which looked like desperation at the time. I cried the night before I started that job, but I sucked it up and gave it my best. No one could have imagined how important that step was to prove for me! I still shake my head in awe at all it lead to.
