Year: 2018

When something happens and the first thing you do is put it out on Facebook, you know it’s a big deal.  Kind of like my incident with a grocery stocker and a package of hamburger buns.  That’s right, hamburger buns. Some may have read the Facebook update so you know what happened.  Let me recreate the scene for you so you can understand just how I could get so upset at one miserable old man. I had gone to the grocery…

One thing I didn’t really take into consideration when getting a puppy is the expense you will endure for random issues. Sure, you know about getting shots and getting their nails trimmed, etc. That’s all in the ‘already know beforehand’ file. Today was a bit different and I want to share my day regarding the pup. Step by step. Also, there’s a pic at the end. Now you will definitely read on… 1. Dropped puppy off at the vet before…

One of the best things about blogging is the fact that you get to steal ideas from other bloggers. Crap. Borrow, you get to borrow ideas from other bloggers. This is a community pool right? What makes this okay (in my eyes) is that borrowing ideas when you can’t seem to get into a writing groove helps out tremendously. Which is where I am at. Dealing with Sprocket Ink and Studio30 Plus is one thing, writing random is again turning…

Last Saturday night, I found out that a childhood friend who I had not seen or heard from for about 15 years, but recently reconnected with through Facebook, was in a coma due to an extremely aggressive brain tumor. I just found out today that it will be today or tomorrow when they decide to pull her off life support. I believe with everything in me that things happen for a reason. This reason for her short life may never…

I couldn’t wait until after 5 o’clock that day. I remember just how slow the clock was moving at work. Mocking me. I had finally decided which flat screen to get. That particular Wednesday, I had finally made up my mind. All there was left to do was go get it. Flat screen and surround sound system. For a guy, that’s a memorable day. Especially your first one. Thoughts of getting it all home and hooked up and hitting the…

It’s sad to say but this is a true story… It’s a story that everyone can relate to. Not that what I’m about to say has happened to you, but that you can identify with it. This story happened about 3 years ago, but I am always fearfully reminded of its power every few days. It will forever be known as The Time I Almost Lost It. Literally. I had just left work and needed to see about a cheap…

I just read a post from one of my favorite bloggers. It was one of those posts that after reading it, you close your laptop and just sit. You’re not bored or confused but your mind is racing. You sit there and can still read the words in your head. You leave with a different perspective than you had going in. Best part is that this post didn’t want exposure. It was on the site…just because. Sometimes, posts can be…

One thing that annoys me is unnecessary conversation. The person that when it happens to be the first cold day of the year, they are “fake shivering”. “Can you believe this weather? It’s craaazy!” (You’re still in short sleeves, nodding your head.) “I can’t believe you don’t have on layers, it’s freezing!!” “Dude, it’s 70 degrees.” “Yeah, but I’m shaking! I bet winter will be really bad this year….see how I’m shaking?” Or… The guy at dinner that orders the…

I noticed her long before I first spoke to her. That was the easy part. Long beautiful hair. Beautiful smile. And those glasses. Oh those glasses. I always wondered what it would be like to simply say hi to her. To be next to her and smile. I wondered what that would feel like. I knew myself though. I knew what was and was not possible. Talking to her, wasn’t possible. Blame shyness or the fear of rejection. A plethora…

I got home from dinner last night. I had a couple things recording in my DVR. The Heat/Knicks game and The Oscars. The DVR is the greatest invention. Ever. Especially for things like the Oscars or The Biggest Loser. Is it just me or does everyone on that show have to comment 12 times each episode that they don’t want to fall below the yellow line because that means they have a chance of being sent home. Isn’t that the…
