What does this mean....."ghosted the hell out of him" from this article....

Sean Penn and Charlize Theron started dating in late 2013, got engaged in 2014, and broke up last month after she reportedly ghosted the hell out of him. Now they've reunited for reshoots on the Penn-directed, Theron-starring The Last Face, which means both of them are forced to spend uncomfortably long hours literally reenacting things they once did together as a happy couple. Look at their faces: This is the darkest breakup time line.


I've just never heard that line before.....ghosted the hell out of him

When God called me to talk politics and Scott Walker .....by S.L. Wisenberg

The phone rang early this morning. The clock radio said it was 3:30, my husband mumbled that it hadda be a crank and the phone screen showed “Unknown.” I answered it anyway.

It was God.

I was peeved: “Why are you calling at the crack of dawn?”

“Oh, you know I don’t keep track of hours and minutes,” she said. “For me, everything takes place at the same time, past and present and future. I separated darkness and light, and called it a day.”

“But …”

“I did have a pocket watch for a while, but it keep slipping through,” she said. “No pockets. Anyway, I’m calling to tell you to run for president.”

“You’re kidding,” I said. “You mean just like Scott Walker?”

“Oh, that governor of Iowa?” said God.


“I get all those cheese and corn states mixed up,” she said. “Maybe like him. He’s a radical Republican, isn’t he?”

“I guess you could say so,” I replied.

“I love those radical Republicans,” God said. “Take that Thaddeus Stevens — such a strong voice against slavery. And the tall, dark-haired guy, the one who splits hairs.”

“You mean rails?”

“Yeah, I guess,” said God. “Must have been a typo.”

I told God that the United States had abolished slavery 150 years ago. She was confused. God said she’d assumed that slavery was still allowed below the Mason-Dixie Line because on her last visit there, she’d seen a lot of Confederate flags. I didn’t try to explain, but I said: “And it’s Dixon.”

Adult coloring books anyone? I've got one, and use colored pencils instead of crayons.

Can only color for about a half an hour as my thumbs are pretty arthritic. But love doing it.
