A church has a rat problem

The church doesn’t want to kill the rats so they trap them and release them far away, but the next day they are back.

Next they try ask them politely to leave, still they won’t budge.

Finally the priest has one last idea, he baptized all the rats.

Now they only come at Christmas and Easter.

man walked into a bar. He sat down and asked the bar tender “If I impress you, can I have a free drink?”. The bar tender said sure, so the man reached in his pocket and pulled out a tiny piano. He then pulled out a small rat and set it by the piano. It crawled on to the bench and began playing

music. The bar tender was amazed, so he gave the man a beer. Next, the man said “If I impress you even more, can I have free drinks for life?”. The bar tender didn’t think it was possible, so he agreed. The man pulled a frog out of his pocket, and it began to sing by the piano. The bar tender smiled and told the man that he was impressed. A man in a suit with a cane walked into the bar, saw the small animals, and offered to buy them for $2 million. The owner said no, but he offered to sell the frog for $500k. The rich man agreed, took the frog, and left. The bar tender couldn’t believe the owner just did that and said “Why did you just sell the frog?! There is no singing now!”. The owner laughed and said “Don’t worry; the rat is a ventriloquist!”.

Two professors of economics were walking down a road when they saw a dead rat.

The older one said – “If you eat this, I’ll pay you ₹10,000”. The younger one makes a quick cost-benefit analysis and finally eats the rat.

The younger professor experiences a bad after-taste and wants the older professor to experience the same. When he sees another dead rat on the road, he dares the professor to eat it in exchange for the old ₹10,000. The senior professor, eager to recover his reckless bet, eats it.

After a few minutes of walking silently, the younger professor finally says – “Looks like we’ve been eating dead rats for free.”

The older professor remarks, “But don’t forget we just added ₹ 20,000 to the GDP!”

RATS!

Been deciding what part of my book I want to use as a sample, to send to the publisher. It’s difficult, because I need it to show my skills, and worry anything I give them won’t be enough. I also joined a course to improve my social media plateform. If I want to be a writer, I need to tap into the right online audience.

Later we took daisy on a lovely walk and finished the night playing xbox with my hubby.

Still in my mini routine of working and doing yoga. I also like to watch a documentary in the evening.

Mood is ok, Im still getting anxious about searching for a job but I’m trying to not give myself a hard time.

“I write because I love it. Words are free, and they soar with wings unbound from my mind to my fingers. And then they travel great miles to reach your eyes. Here are the stories that I have to share. They stem from my observations, my experiences, my joys, my anguish, and my pure love of writing. […]

Guest Blog Post: My Road to Getting Published by Geoffrey Simpson

Happiness Between Tails by da-AL

The story of how author Geoffrey Simpson, who just released “The Three Hares,” got his first book published — in his own words…

Geoffrey Simpson, author of The Three Hares Geoffrey Simpson, author of The Three Hares

On a gloomy January morning, the air was heavy and uninspired. I read an article about ancient symbols—a distraction from those about politics, rife with propaganda. One symbol, with three rabbits chasing one another in an infinite circle, struck a chord. A whirlwind flooded my conscience.

Although I’ve never written before, a few story ideas were tucked away for a rainy day. That same morning, I began to plot. That same gloomy day was the beginning of an adventurous journey to becoming an author. 

Three months later, manuscript in hand and an intent to self-publish, an author friend of the family strongly encouraged me to find an editor. I hadn’t planned on investing in this project, but I also never…
