It depends. When I eat popcorn, I eat popcorn. I don’t want any nuts in that. However, I love pecans (Pronounced “Pea Can” not puh khan) in my chocolate pudding. I love brownies with pecans.
Almonds are good in just about anything.
If someone made a movie of your life would it be a drama, a comedy, a romantic-comedy, action film, or science fiction?
I try to keep my live as drama-free as possible. That ain’t happenin'’. So, most likely it would be a drama. In the early years, it would have definitely been a comedy.
One instance of this was when, back in high school, my friend U.J. had a headache. A girl in one of his classes gave him a Midol. A few hours later, he and I had band class together. He had no sisters and was kind of out of the loop when it came to female matters.
I told him that a Midol is not a headache medicine. I told him that a Midol was meant for girls to help them with their menstrual cramps. I told U. J. that a Midol was just loaded with female hormones. I told him that he was going to start growing things he did not need and things he might need would go away. I said, “In fact, you are looking kinda cute to me now”.
U. J. freaked. He put aside some of his fears and went to see one of the biology teachers to ask her what he should do.
I received a lecture from her about all the wrong information I had. I had to “fess up” and tell her I knew all that, I was just messin’ with U. J.
She thought it was funny, too. But after her laugh, I got a strict warning not to be tricking gullible people.
Who talks real sense to you?
Suzanne is my sounding board. When I am messed up, she tells me so. We typically discuss anything major. She makes good sense to me all the time.
Back in the day, my father had some really good advice. It is amazing how the older I get, the wiser he gets. The advice he offered back years ago seems to be much wiser than it was back then.
Do you have a favorite board game?
When the kids are all home, we like to play the My Little Pony version of Monopoly. When I was younger and had more of my brain cells, I loved chess. I was never very good at it, but I did enjoy it. I taught myself using the World Book Encyclopedia.
Optional Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
We had both daughters home with us back at Thanksgiving. We had a good time. The oldest daughter had to work. She worked the early morning shift at Walmart.
This week, I can’t really think of anything to look forward to. It is just another day in paradise.
On a random note: I think that legislation should be enacted called the Take Back Thanksgiving Act. In this act:
No company can compel a non-executive employee to work on any day that is their personal holiday.
Any employee who works on Thanksgiving or Christmas should be paid triple time for the entire time they are at work. They are to be given fifteen minute breaks every two hours and a one hour CATERED lunch, all of which would be paid at the triple time rate.
ALL employees of the executive level (CEO, CFO) at any company that has any employees who must work on Thanksgiving or Christmas must work at least eight hours in a store at a line-level position (cashier, stocker, waiter, busboy).
All board members of any company that is open in its entirety or in part must work a standard eight hour shift at a line-level position.
Majority stockholders would be required to do the same.
The penalties for the those not working the eight hour shift would be for the company to pay one twelfth of that employee’s annual pay, including all bonuses, and stock options, etc. or $150,000, whichever is greater.
This would make companies think twice about being open on days when employees should be able to be with their families.
