September Surprises

howsoonisnow200

It is almost October, but already there have been several surprises. I guess you could say they are premature October Surprises. That is when they drop the political bombshells that affect the elections. This post is not about politics, though. It is just that a lot of surprises happened to me in the last few days, and they seem at first to be negative, but I think the outcome will ultimately be positive.

My friend Jerub got arrested at the BLM demonstration, but maybe that will cause people to rally behind his cause? Like he will start a GofundMe. You know the drill. He was also trying to launch his brand on IG. Don’t know how he intends to monetize that, but he seems to think he has it under control. He showed me his statistics, and he was getting a huge increase in viewers. Like 500 — 800% increase. So what, like 5 viewers, and now it is 8? He posted a video of him working out at the gym. There are some people who are into that. Who watch it. Probably homosexuals — not that there’s anything wrong with that! Anyway, he is posting videos of himself dancing and working out, and he is handsome and attractive. He has youth going for him, as he is in his dirty thirties, but due to his healthy lifestyle and diet, he looks better than most 20 year-olds. I would post a link, but I am jealous. So, he will probably do all right without me, but don’t want to give him a boost. 

Well, besides getting arrested, he cut his hand. Wrapped it with duct tape and he was good to go. Or was he? He has these really sharp knives that he uses for his mangos. His diet, from what I gather, consists almost entirely of mangos. I wish he would have done a proper wound bandage, but what do I, a Late Boomer, know? He was excited about the Black Lives Matter demo, and he hastily cut his hand on his sharp and steely knife. Another interesting thing he told me was that there is a demon associated with Jezebel, and his mother, or so he says, was blessed or cursed with that spirit. Also my recently Xed GF. 

My cat Samantha, should have been my cat, Jezebel. And definitely my dog, Delilah. She was a Jezebel from hell, that is for certain. 

“Lily Belle, your hair is golden brown” is a line from “Southern Man” by Neil Young. I was thinking it said Jezebel, but it was Lily Belle. But there is this from the Bible:

1 Kings 21:5-16 King James Version (KJV)

5 But Jezebel his wife came to him, and said unto him, Why is thy spirit so sad, that thou eatest no bread?6 And he said unto her, Because I spake unto Naboth the Jezreelite, and said unto him, Give me thy vineyard for money; or else, if it please thee, I will give thee another vineyard for it: and he answered, I will not give thee my vineyard.

6 And he said unto her, Because I spake unto Naboth the Jezreelite, and said unto him, Give me thy vineyard for money; or else, if it please thee, I will give thee another vineyard for it: and he answered, I will not give thee my vineyard.

7 And Jezebel his wife said unto him, Dost thou now govern the kingdom of Israel? arise, and eat bread, and let thine heart be merry: I will give thee the vineyard of Naboth the Jezreelite.

8 So she wrote letters in Ahab’s name, and sealed them with his seal, and sent the letters unto the elders and to the nobles that were in his city, dwelling with Naboth.

9 And she wrote in the letters, saying, Proclaim a fast, and set Naboth on high among the people:

10 And set two men, sons of Belial, before him, to bear witness against him, saying, Thou didst blaspheme God and the king. And then carry him out, and stone him, that he may die.

11 And the men of his city, even the elders and the nobles who were the inhabitants in his city, did as Jezebel had sent unto them, and as it was written in the letters which she had sent unto them.

12 They proclaimed a fast, and set Naboth on high among the people.

13 And there came in two men, children of Belial, and sat before him: and the men of Belial witnessed against him, even against Naboth, in the presence of the people, saying, Naboth did blaspheme God and the king. Then they carried him forth out of the city, and stoned him with stones, that he died.

14 Then they sent to Jezebel, saying, Naboth is stoned, and is dead.

15 And it came to pass, when Jezebel heard that Naboth was stoned, and was dead, that Jezebel said to Ahab, Arise, take possession of the vineyard of Naboth the Jezreelite, which he refused to give thee for money: for Naboth is not alive, but dead.

16 And it came to pass, when Ahab heard that Naboth was dead, that Ahab rose up to go down to the vineyard of Naboth the Jezreelite, to take possession of it.

Well, there is more to the story, but it is late, so I will continue next time. Same Bat Time. Same Bat Channel.
