Question of the Week #202

Would you be willing to commit perjury for a close friend? For example, might you testify that he was driving carefully when he hit a pedestrian even though he had been joking around and not paying attention? No. And I'm sure that would lose me some friendships if I were put into that position. I'm … Continue reading Question of the Week #202

Movie Nights

Back in my Bluefield College days, specifically during my sophomore year, my roommates and I played host to a weekly movie night. Typically, these would happen sometime on Wednesday evenings, after the Baptist Student Union's weekly Bible study/worship time that we called GAP (Growth And Praise). Looking back, I'm not sure how these movie nights … Continue reading Movie Nights

Question of the Week #196

You have arranged an evening with a friend, but on the day preceding your date a special opportunity arises to do something much more exciting. How would you handle the situation? Knowing myself the way I do... I'd probably do neither. At least, I'd want to do neither. Being social? Doing exciting things? That doesn't sound … Continue reading Question of the Week #196

When Bloggers Meet

I've been blogging off and on (mostly on) since 2005. No, it hasn't all been here on The Confusing Middle or hosted by the good people at the WordPress. My first decade in the world of blogging involved a blog titled Carp Dime and was hosted over at Blogger. I'm pretty sure Carp Dime is … Continue reading When Bloggers Meet

Question of the Week #195

Of all the people close to you, whose death would you find most disturbing? I really hope it's not a cop out to say my mother. Because, at this point, that would probably tear me up the most out of anyone I know, be it friend or family. She's the only parent I have left. … Continue reading Question of the Week #195

Question of the Week #192

When you are with your friends, do your interactions include much touching--for example, hugging, kissing, roughhousing, or rubbing backs? Would you like to have more of this? No. And no. At least... not as far as I'm concerned. I very much enjoy my personal space. I get uncomfortable when there are crowds full of people … Continue reading Question of the Week #192

I’ll Be There For You

I'm certain we've established that I, from time to time, have some pretty freakin' bizarre dreams. Exhibit A. At times, they can be kind of disturbing. Exhibit B. Recently, I had a dream that was, yes, bizarre. But it was less disturbing than it was incredibly awesome. In this dream, I was married. But I … Continue reading I’ll Be There For You

Splitting the Check

All right kids, help me out with this. What's the norm? When you go to a restaurant with a big group of people, do you tell your server that you're on individual checks or do you let the restaurant just divide the check up evenly, no matter what everyone gets? Personally, I've only ever experienced … Continue reading Splitting the Check

Life Story: Chapter Seventy Three

Welcome to a series of stories that basically make up my autobiography. It’s not entirely thorough, but I’ll do the best I can with the memories locked away inside my head. Could be therapeutic for me. Could be humorous for you. Either way, enjoy… Previously on Life Story... I auditioned for a choir known as … Continue reading Life Story: Chapter Seventy Three
