Enough Already!

As a fan of the greatest football team on the planet, I have come to expect much more than what is currently passing as football at Old Trafford. Stinko. Today’s match at Watford has me wondering once again, what the hell is going on? Georgie Best is surely turning in his grave. I’ll tell youContinue reading “Enough Already!”

Stubbornness

This is one of my worst faults. I know, I know, how can it be that I have ANY faults, but I am serious about this one thing. If I think I am right about something, good luck getting me to change my mind. I will go to time immemorial before I acquiesce. Karen usedContinue reading “Stubbornness”

Be Kind Yesterday

 I am so ripped I just realized that TODAY Saturday, November 13th is World Kindness Day 2021. I am thinking back on how I was kind today. I did a lot of extra work around the house and being kind to Karen earns big dividends, although I am a pretty good partner as far asContinue reading “Be Kind Yesterday”

Best Gift I Ever Gave

Do you remember the best thing you ever did in your entire life? Looking back at every gift I ever gave or received, one stands out high above the others. I was in a very self-destructive stage of my time spent in Las Vegas (big shock there, right?) and I had been walked out on,Continue reading “Best Gift I Ever Gave”

Are You Serious?

The Domestic Despot enlightened me yesterday to a website that actually reminds people five times a day that they are going to die. Lovely. You don’t need a website. Go look in the mirror. Beneath all the mascara, make-up, and foundation, etc. you are dying. Underneath the bleached and dyed hair, the colored nails, theContinue reading “Are You Serious?”

Brrrrr!

I don’t give a hot damn what the local weather forecasters say about this “unseasonably warm weather we are having”, I say it is cold. I know, I’m a weather weenie. I get it. With today’s temperature climbing to almost (gasp!) sixty degrees, I was in my sweats and long sleeves. I barely made it.Continue reading Brrrrr!”

The Bus Trip

It was supposed to be a first-class plane ticket home, but I ended up squandering my grant money from school on a doomed football bet. I had to take a bus all the way across the states, and it turned out to be quite the adventure. I boarded the Greyhound bus in South Bend, IndianaContinue reading “The Bus Trip”

Reason

I admire people who use reason as their first instinct before deciding on a course of action. I admire them because I am usually the opposite in my reactions and following actions. It is a major flaw of mine (I know I just shocked those of you who see me as the perfect male, butContinue reading “Reason”

Ice

Where would we be if there was no such thing as ice? Warm beer. (But if you know anything at all about beer, that is a good thing). But no cold lager. Them’s fighting words. Ice storms would just be storms and those old ice skates in your closet would never have been made inContinue reading “Ice”
