Day 41

Though I’m not in the least bit upset about it, I know many people who are. It happens every year on this date, but it became yet another casualty of the coronavirus: Free Slurpee Day at 7-Eleven. Normally, on 11 July of every year, the date being 07/11, the 7-Eleven chain allows people to get […]

Day 40

I am back at home after my extremely quick trip to California. We drove to Arroyo Grande to get a transmission for my son’s Suburban. According to Google Maps, the shortest route was to go CA-58 past Tehachapi, then across the state down to our destination. NEVER WILL I TRAVEL THAT ROUTE AGAIN! I would […]

Day 39

I’ve seen a couple of places around town (specifically, several Maverik gas stations and El Pollo Loco) that have signs posted saying “exact change or card only”. At first, I thought why? Then I read something about a coin shortage. Now my thought shifts to what the fuck? There are literally billions of coins in […]

Day 38

Today is the 190th day of 2020. One hundred seventy-six days remain in this year’s hell. Have you ever called out of work, not because you were sick, but you were hurting physically? That was me today. I almost never call out of work, unless I’m so sick I can’t even get out of bed. […]

Day 37

It’s strange to think that thirteen years ago, everyone was excited because of the triple-numbered “lucky” date, 07/07/07. What is it about numbers that get people’s attention? Why is 13 considered an unlucky number? So much so that there’s an actual name for the fear of the number 1️⃣3️⃣: triskaidekaphobia. Is it due to the […]

Day 36

“It’s just another manic Monday…🎶” I might sound a little like Garfield in the comics, but I really don’t like Mondays. Monday at work recently has been a terrible shit show, and busy as fuck. Is everyone coming here from California to get away from the lockdowns? I know there have been a hell of […]

Day 35

Am I the only one who has a kid that is either too lazy to fix their own food, flat-out refuses to, or will forego eating because no one made it for them? I have a kid like that. This kid will bug me to no end to make food either until I relent and […]

Day 34

Today is the day many Americans celebrate the anniversary of the country’s independence from the British crown. Of course, for many it’s just a day of fireworks and barbeques; the spirit of the day is lost on a lot of these folks. For others, there’s hardly a reason to celebrate. One thing I wish we […]

Day 33

Tomorrow is Independence Day in the United States. It’s the day we commemorate our independence from Britain back in 1776. Many people call the US “the land of the free, home of the brave”. But, are we truly free? Are citizens of the United States truly a “free people”? Yes, there are things we can […]

Day 32

I don’t know if it’s society de-evolving or becoming more aware of things today. People seem to be ever more sensitive to everything. Some people call it being “woke”; others will say people are just being “butt-hurt pussies about nonsense shit”. Whatever you call it, things have changed dramatically over the last few decades. The […]
