I Am a Seed

I once spent a lot of time sitting in a classroom full of first graders. Because of this fact, I found myself relearning a lot of things I’ve actually known for 30 years. Actually, more often than not, I found myself realizing that a lot of the things I know, which I’ve assumed for years … Continue reading I Am a Seed

You Know How I Know I’m Old?

I'm on daily medication to lower my blood pressure. That's right... It's finally happened. I'm just another guy in his early 40s who has high blood pressure and now has to have a prescription medication to take care of that little issue. Okay, I know that doesn't necessarily serve as an indicator that I'm old. … Continue reading You Know How I Know I’m Old?

Rewatching Quantum Leap – Episode 48

Theorizing that one could time travel within his own lifetime, Dr. Sam Beckett stepped into the quantum leap accelerator and vanished.

Question of the Week #325

Terrorists send the president a message saying that unless he gives them $25 billion, they'll detonate a nuclear bomb in Manhattan. What should the president do? What would you do? Would you feel differently if the city were El Paso or Indianapolis? I hate this type of question. It's the Kobayashi Maru of questions. A … Continue reading Question of the Week #325

Instacart Insanity

Warning: This post is another "Get off my lawn" rant. I've said it before and I know I'll say it again... The pandemic and subsequent lockdown of 2020 taught me how to be an anxious individual. Throughout most of my life, I've considered myself to be fairly laid back. And, generally speaking, when I'm interacting … Continue reading Instacart Insanity

The Facebook Friendzone

It's a funny thing, discovering that you're no longer connected to someone through social media. Did I post something they didn't agree with? Was I not posting enough to be worth their time? Was I posting too much and it just got obnoxious? So many thoughts run through my anxious mind over something so trivial … Continue reading The Facebook Friendzone
