Cleaning Corn in the Store?

Since when are you able to shuck corn in the store and leave the husks all over the display? I have seen people doing this multiple times and I feel it is quite rude. What makes these people think this is OK? You don’t see anyone opening up a cantaloupe, scoping out the seeds, cutting up pieces and leaving the rind behind do you? Put your corn in a bag, take it home and clean it there, just like everyone else.

One Birthday Card for everyone

Have you ever stood at the card racks at the store for 20 minutes trying to find just the right birthday card?  If not, have you ever stood with someone for 20 minutes while they looked for a card?

Why do we do this?  I know you want to get a meaningful card, but really.  Do you keep all the cards you get?  Maybe for a week, but sooner or later they get pitched, no matter how funny or clever the card was.  And in some cases, the card you spent so much time painstakingly picking for the birtday boy ends up being a dupliate of a card someone else has given.

So I ask, why not publish one birthday card for everyone?  Publish it in 4 colors, all with the same wording.  You’ve just saved yourself 20 minutes.  And you can personalize the card and make it really funny or extra meaningful by writing your own words inside. 


Or, I’m even open to a mad lib style card.

Dear ________,

I want to wish you a _______ birthday.  You are __________________.   I hope you ______________________.  Happy Birthday!

Love _________.

Dear Sally,

I want to wish you a happy 34th birthday. You are the best. I hope you get all the presents you asked for. Happy Birthday!

Love Steve.

Drink Preference While Eating Spaghetti

I prefer to have milk when I eat spaghetti.  If I get it at a restaurant, then I don’t get milk.  But otherwise, I always have milk.  I’ve been told that is odd.  What do you drink with your spaghetti dinner?
