Reflections from the Back Porch, Friday, 1 Dec 2006, “Misfits, loosers and angry loners”

By
Real Estate Services with Noted Curmudgeons

Jay’s Coffee MugThis morning, Medford & I joined the “Misfits, loosers and angry loners” group, complete with the misspelled “loosers” (losers), a nice touch.  We joined because Realtor® Teresa pointedly invited us in her focus statement: “Codgers are always welcome.” Although she did not send us an invitation, we were more than a little intrigued by the title.

Opinionated old men (people, really) can be, and often are “misfits” ‘cause our opinions are often (quite happily) at odds with conventional wisdom. What an opportunity for us—a whole new venue to be cranky!

The boys at the coffee shop will absolutely love this concept!

I prefer to think of being a loner is more like and Eagle.

Eagles don't flock they fly alone.

“Realtor®” Teresa: Don’t conflate not being “perky” (and running around with an insincere smile on your face) with “bad personality.”

KK & MM: “Realtor®” Teresa, Carole Cohen, Maureen & Dmitry, Kristal Kraft, Maureen McCabe, & Leanne Paynter, all are eagles, for sure. Medford & I are not familiar with Tricia Jumonville (yet), but she’s from the “Lone Star State,” and that alone says a passel!  Oh, and MM, The codgers had nothing to do with the formation of this group, other than providing a little encouragement with our collective cackling at the prospect.  We're just happy that we two old birds were encouraged to join.

I don't know the word "conflate" but will look it up and use it in conversation today if I am able to....  but I believe  I agree with Jay about fake perkyness,  without even knowing the exact definition of conflate. 

I find a true voice to be a lot more interesting ....than the canned "perky"  you often find in the industry.

Thanks for forming the group Teresa.  I believe I should say Thanks for inspiring the group to the "old birds."

According to Webster: “Con-Flate (kәn-flāt΄) to combine or mix (two variant readings into a single text, etc.)”
