the jig is up

999 puzzle pieces pour deliciously on the coffee table

The thousandth ran 2 laps on the grounds before coming to a calm post

The irregular shape of the piece against the perfect tiles makes it look like a spill from this height

Instead of water treating my head line, heart line, and life line, like a finish line, and racing through it like a hare, the shape of this puzzle piece has the profile of a baby tortoise upon slower analysis

“Turtles taste like cardboard” I expressed so I tucked in my puck

Roasting myself like, “You’re such a beanhead for letting that partner of theirs persuade you into spending Starbucks on a 3D puzzle instead of a flat white”

That pile of puzzle pieces sitting atop the mocha lava colored table is sculpted like a volcano, or did those cardboards just fall out the cardboard that way?

Maybe that’s why this turquoise turtle turned course? Poor little thing doesn’t know how to protect itself with its totally coarse shell yet.

Sugar dugar, I’m why your puzzle piece is missing

I have stolen a piece out of every puzzle made since 1991. The piece that most resembles a baby turtle. Don’t ask me how I do it. I don’t share my process with teenagers, mutants, or ninjas.

I was just a weird little zombie kid who wanted pet turtles

Because the pieces were all from different puzzles I never attempted to fill in the blanks with the tabs

Then one day during a commercial break of The Walking Dead I tried out of boredom and something amazing happened …

        1. If you know I used expressed so/espresso then you should be then you should know I would have kept with the theme. I stayed with two themes throughout. I even made it easy by making the words look “different” than the others. I actually just edited it and revamped a whole line. Refresh it.

Those are types of lines we have in our palm. The line before it said spill which is what it looked like on the floor. I’m saying I picked it up. When you hold water in your hands it moves between the lines. I also referenced tortoise and hare with finishing line. Look I’m just clever as fuck okay! Hmmm would you understand Spanish, huh essay ? Or S-A?

                    3. I decided when I came back from leave that I wanted my office to be the best in the company (there are 4 residential offices so this shouldn’t be hard). Part of accomplishing that is by implementing things my general manager said she hoped to accomplish company wide. Company culture is one thing and improving customer service. So I decided to have monthly pot lucks and go over where we are with reaching our goals, what issues or concerns we have and build moral by enjoying good food and each other’s company. This will be our first one and the food theme is Mexican/Spanish style food.

Like I want to tie the why Did I Get Married posts to bible journaling which ties to the products I want to sell on amazon and Etsy. There is also my I’m grateful series I had started which would relate to the product too. I also wanted to start another blog that relates to my line of work which will also tie into the product I want to sell. Like all three of those things I can connect with the ultimate goal of selling something and creating a new stream of income. The music part is just pure pleasure for now.

                    13. If selling products on Etsy and Amazon is your goal then you need a whole new blog. Whatever products you sell you need to take pics of it and show customers enjoying the product. You also need to get better at describing your products. Can’t be the same way other companies who sell the same thing .

                    19. Yeah I just popped open a fresh box last night. Got fruit loops marshmallows too. Non fat milk. Today is the last day for my Cinemax subscription and I’m watching The Theory of Everything. I’m not too much of a fake tough and not scared to admit I been crying for nearly an hour watching this movie. This has nothing to do with him recently dying. I been planning on seeing this movie. Just never got around to it. It’s my type of movie. It’s just so sad seeing this young handsome guy who was on his way to changing how we thought about science to be struck with losing his body. Then him finding love. But now the movie is pissing me off because this other man is in the picture. And because Steven can’t really do anything with his body (they say the sex organs are completely different and still function). I refuse to believe this. Anyway Stephen mother asked Jane flat out who is Timothy’s father. She says Stephen. Jonathan overheard the conversation and as he was on his way out they confessed their feelings for each other. Now Stephen and Jane already have two kids but his condition was better but it grew worse with their third child so it’s speculation on who the real father is. I just don’t like this. It went from this beautiful emotional movie for me to a lesson about marriage.

                    20. Perhaps my response is oversimplified(forewarning) luckily for you, you don’t believe in marriage and don’t have any plans to get married…but more seriously, marriage can be beautiful but you have to except that the fairytale idea of how it’s supposed to work just isn’t true and if you can’t except it then it’s best not to even get into it…but that’s just my opinion based solely on where I am now in life…but perhaps it’s really more like you said, people should wait for their soulmates but we live in a society that would lead you or women especially to believe that if you aren’t married by a certain age something is wrong with you or if you haven’t been with a person for a certain amount of time then you would be crazy to take that leap, anywho once again I’m rambling…love is a crazy illogical thing haro, but that’s just my current opinion

                    23. I’m a Gemini. I can change at any moment lol. I’m sure I did say that but only because of what I see in the media and what I witness first hand. I’m the type of person I don’t have to experience something first hand or multiple times. Once you do something that hurt me or is something I can’t imagine happening to me then I’m done. I just couldn’t allow a woman to do to me what I see happen to men. I can’t see a woman taking my kids away from me. I can’t see a woman cheating on me and expecting it to be cool. I can’t see a woman acting like she my mom and bossing me around. I can’t see a woman divorcing me and taking things I worked hard for. But the most important things is my kids. I can’t see that ever happening. I just can’t see a woman turning my kids against me. I will snap. Most of these men are so stupid to me and deserve the bad things that happen to them. They worship women like they are so mythical creatures like they should be a subject in college. Before I watched the movie I read a review that said how Stephen and Jane met. The reviewer said he was either shy or ignorant of women. What does that last part mean? I never hear things like that the opposite way. It’s never mutual. I never hear “oh that woman doesn’t understand that man.” It’s always “just fuck him and cook.” Than other things I pay close attention to I feel like men never questioned like the “happy wife happy life” shit. I can go on and on.

                      One part of me want to be the type married to my purpose in my life like my career and die leaving a mark. Then another part of me want to balance that with 4 kids (2 boys. 2 girls) and my soulmate. Someone I can make money with and have a company with.

                      I need to see the last 30 mins to do that.

                    24. Ha! A man can be the one being bossy asking you to abandon everything you start to accomplish on your own then treating like you’re worthless or incapable of doing things for yourself like you are a damn child but perhaps the woman’s real issue is she just wants to live her life and be loved for who she is flaws and all without someone telling her she’s not good enough. Men can be exactly what you described they can take and they cheat and curse you out and call you dumb for not asking about it when you first felt something may have happened. Bullshit, men are assholes, they take advantage of you being sweet and nice until they corrupt you then call you crazy. They make babies and abandon them especially when you decide you don’t want to marry their crazy behinds, some of them only want to make time for their kids if it means you will be there with them too smfh…sorry I didn’t even read the whole response I just got triggered off that first part😤…not all men are that way I guess…let me finish reading you reply 😒

                    51. If you referring to what I said about me thinking at one time I may meet my wife on here, yes, I really did think that. Something actually happen recently back in 2016. It went from periodically commenting on this girl post then me seeing how she looked when she posted a pic. I made up in my mind I had to come up with a plan to get her. I didn’t lay out no blueprints but I just started commenting on her blog more without caring if she came to me. Somehow someway we end up getting close. And we had so much in common. Both had no kids (she was in a bad relationship at the time due to being stalked by her man’s baby mama). We both were in the insurance business. We both had the same health issues although we never directly said it to each other. I just knew what she was going through cause I was too. She was understanding of things a girl would say is a deal breaker. Had I played my cards right she would have moved down here and we would have got married and had kids and I knew she would be a great mom. The problem was obviously me and my temper. But looking back on it although we had similarities our personalities clashed. She was super sensitive and I’m brash/in your face. The downfall came when I showed her my post about the skinny jeans. She was super sensitive about that and I thought I made fun of rape. I only brought up that post cause i started a convo about our most controversial or creative posts and I wanted to show her that. She is the reason why I took the real names off it and put a trigger warning on it. I even came close to putting it on private. We use to talk every night before then she wanted to take a break. That devastated me cause I really liked her. I’m not that angry because she was too sensitive and she didn’t get me. I really hated it cause because we was about to also verge our blogs together. Two people were becoming one. I just hate she didn’t get me and we had so many misunderstandings after that damn post. I just couldn’t win after that.

I went back and forth with myself on going another route with the idea. That post was just me finalizing how I felt when I sent you all them messages. The post actually makes sense the other way around as well. There really is a National Institute Trial Advocacy. I read on their website they teach you hands on.

                    63. I’m confused. Are you referring to Perhaps where I posted a Lorde song? Nah I’m referring to what I told you in that message from last night (Chocolate Heart and it’s sequel). The Lorde song has nothing to do with that post cause I wrote it back in 2016. The lines I posted from that song (Ribs) always remind me of you. I listen to it when I run on the treadmill and I always get excited during that part. It really pushes me. I just think about our friendship and how I want it to feel like that song. It’s a high.

                      You know how they say music is a drug. All I listen to on the treadmill is Lorde, Lana Del Ray, Cults, and Sleigh Bells. Sometimes rap when I’m feeling aggressive. We have a big wall mirror in front of our treadmill and every time she gets to the outro “you’re the only friend I need” I sing even louder and point into the mirror.

I do it while I’m running so it may sound crazy cause I’m breathing heavier than someone who is standing still. I know for a fact the music pushes me. All the times I did over 700 calories it’s cause I was distracted by the music instead of constantly looking at the screen on the treadmill. When I’m feeling real exhausted I have to change to a certain song to pump me up

        1. Oh let me check it out. I didn’t click the link. I think the best way is to honestly write about current events and things people search for. I hate doing it cause that’s what everyone else do. The best way is to see what’s happening online and put it in your own words. Just make sure you use keywords. Since I been blogging I had two people who found my blog from search and actually commented. I had posted about my fortune cookie and someone else got the same one and found me. I think that’s pretty cool.

Yes, the obvious one or not so obvious one (lol) is jig is short for jigsaw. Also, it refers to a completed puzzle (the flat ones) cause once it’s done you can hang it up like a picture, which it is anyway, just broken when you first start out. I’m pretty sure you didn’t catch some other stuff as well then. The whole time I was scheming and doing word associations.

                    3. Off topic. I’m starting to think some people either should not get married or wait until they’re old. I always notice how married men are confessing their attraction to other women. I’m only saying this because of my involvement with guy talk. I don’t know if it’s just guy talk or what. But I always say in my head “dude you’re married.” Anytime they say something about a girl they comment on her physical attraction. I be expecting a married dude to not comment at all. Girls do it too but I only know from overhearing because it’s girl talk just like we have guy talk. It just makes me wonder if you think someone is attractive I’m pretty sure you will fuck them if given the opportunity and you wouldn’t be caught lol

I did one where a group of guys and women were talking about their relationship and one girl/guy wasn’t talking about their relationship and they thought that person was either single or gay. Then it turns out the info that was said was used by the other participants to cheat. And the ones who didn’t say nothing had a faithful relationship. That’s something I believe in which is why I wrote it.

        1. Just messing with you. “Sugar dugar” was a late edit. It wasn’t originally in the text. Every time I post something I think it’s ready and it is but after I read it over and over my mind starts thinking of other stuff. I kept saying to myself I didn’t use cream or sugar. I didn’t see a place where they fit until I remember it could fit where “I’m the reason your puzzle is piece is missing” cause I’m talking directly to someone. Plus it’s a song I like. Maybe I just need to sit on posts for a few days cause I hate publishing something then adding things later cause I know people may not read it again.
