Damn Typos

Is it worse to draw attention to a typo in a memo you sent to someone or is it best to just let it be.

On the one hand, you’re acknowledging that you realize you made an error and you’re not a total idiot. You know the difference between they’re, there and their…

On the other, you’re drawing attention to the error.

Oh the dilemma.

Word Play

You can’t have “Funding” without “Fun!”

Nope, pretty sure anytime funding is the issue, there is absolutely no fun.

But perhaps I’m a little jaded… which is a sad statement given my young-ish age.

To Run or Not to Run — NOT

You know that ecard that says “If we’re going for a run, there better be something to motivate me, like a clown with a knife chasing us.” Or something like that…

That’s how I feel about running. I’m really only going to run if it’s for my life.

I simply do not understand this new fad with running. I’ve noticed all my facebook friends jumping on this running craze/bandwagon. Which is fine for them! I have no objections because these are people that want to get healthy, fit, lose weight, gain confidence, etc.

But there are so many other better sports out there for people to learn that burn more calories, tone more muscles, etc.

Swimming is the first example that comes to mind. You don’t see very many 80-year-olds running the dirty dash or some other 5k/marathon type event. However, you do see 80-year-olds swimming. All the time! It’s a life long sport that allows you to work more muscles at once, burn a ton of calories and takes less time to burn the same amount of calories.

Ultimately, I will probably not jump on the running bandwagon. I may go for a jog with my spouse but I’ll slowly work on transitioning our workouts to the swimming pool ūüôā

The Inaugural Post

I decided to start this blog because of a thought I had while on the toilet this afternoon.

How did people ever occupy themselves in the bathroom before smartphones?

The only reason this came to mind was because I realized how bored I was, just sitting, waiting <insert the rest of Jack Johnson’s lyrics> for my body to complete it’s daily afternoon ritual. Or, as I like to call it: my afternoon poo. Yup, that’s what I really call this ritual.

Really, am I so addicted to my technology that I have to bring it with me into one of the most disgusting and contaminated places to exist, the public restroom?

Apparently.

I was bored enough to think that in the future, I won’t forget my phone.

The next problem is, how do I sneak it into the bathroom? You know literally (read in the voice of Chris Trager)¬†everyone (okay, not literally) is on their phone when they’re in the john. You can even see them with their lit up screens if you’re a creeper and look through the cracks of the door on a bathroom stall… Which I definitely do NOT do…

Anyway, I feel as though I should not be that dependent on my phone and yet at the same time, not¬†embarrassed¬†that I want to do a little social media catch up, or pinning, or even the¬†occasional¬†news headline surfing, while I’m on the pot. I mean in reality, it’s the best way to multi-task and in our fast-paced 21st¬†century¬†world, every moment is precious and if you can shoot out a quick email while you’re shooting out a quick¬†deuce. why not?
