Kemp begs not to tell children that their mom is recycling cloves

What ingredient or antioxidants could be hidden in a seasoning

SENIOR SLANT

Trust me folks, there’s not a chance of me getting out of the wrong side of the bed these days. Trying to avoid the little men in white coats ain’t easy. How did they find out I’ve been recycling cloves?

Whatever you do if you cross paths with my kids don’t tell them.

I’m not a cheap skate but I draw the line on the $7-plus price of a tiny jar of cloves. Should the Kemps have invested in McCormick’s? What natural ingredient or antioxidants could possibly be hidden in a seasoning as tiny as a clove? Hmmm. Maybe they’ll announce that cloves eliminate dark spots, freckles and belly fat from the inside out. Yeah, sure, as soon as we get rid of the belly fat, a fat belly will replace, todays’ ”redi-clue-less” fashion statement, big butts.

Unbelievable musician Bob Hughes and his pretty wife, Diane, are celebrating 48 years of wedded bliss and blisters. Diane loves to iron, so much so, that younger-than-I-gal refuses to recycle her board for surfing. A good thing, really: the board is metal, with a million tiny holes and full of embedded starch that will ooze through and pollute the ocean.

I have had to cancel my Halloween mystery trip to downtown Williamsville’s underground bed and breakfast located 100 feet below the now “defunctified” general store. My broom is being held for an outrageous ransom: an unobtainable 10 eye of newts and 13 four-leaf clovers. Rumors abound that the local leprechauns are in on this scam ‘cuz I unwittingly, stumbled into their latest hangout.

My claim that I was pushed is so true. I have handprints as proof. I’ll admit to being clumsy but it was just another one of my cover-the-waterfront boo-boos.

For sure, the folks who only believe half of what they read understand my dilemma — help I’m failing and I can’t get help. Be forewarned that the most fragile plant grows as bodaciously humongous in my yard that even my six-footers refuse to trim for Delmarvans of any age. That is if they’re lucky enough to have retained their balance and sense of humor.
