add line cutters to the list of people who never prosper

Natalie...don't look at it!

Spoiler alert!  We’ll be talking about “chuck” in this article.  You know.  Upchuck?  Puke?  Hurl?  Heave?  Retch?  I’m sure you get where I’m going, here.  Be warned, if you’ve got a sensitive constitution, best click here to view something a bit more pleasant.

It’s amazing what a little bit of regurgitated foodstuffs can do to a gaggle of people.  Take, for instance, what happened to Natalia and your friendly neighborhood jman while we were standing in line at a Chick-Fil-A at one of our local malls.

add line cutters to the list of people how never prosperPaint, if you will the picture of you and I engaged in a kiss this picture for yourself.   It’s the silly season, we were at a mall, and the lines at the food court were as long as the day is long (Wait a minute.  I’m pretty sure that’s not how that idiom goes.  Oh well.  You get the point.).

The Trials and Tribulations of New Phone Buying.

ahhh...the memories!

It’s that time, once again, for your friendly neighborhood jman.  Time to lock myself into two more years of substandard phone service and outrageously priced data plans all for the pleasure of owning a wicked sweet smart phone.

"...she's my ball and chain.  my lock and key and she'll always be wrapped up around me..."
“…she’s my ball and chain. my lock and key and she’ll always be wrapped up around me…”

I was being facetious through most of that, fyi.  Except the owning of a wicked sweet smart phone.  That part?  I’m as serious as a heart attack.  One of the things I don’t talk much about on this site is one of my other loves…technology.  Especially gadgets.  I love ‘em both.  I don’t think there’s a technological gadget out there I couldn’t convince myself that I need.  Or, in the very least, make my life utter and completely complete.

Bet You Can’t Guess What Designer Water Tastes Like…

I’ll be the first one to admit marketing works on your friendly neighborhood jman. You slap the word “new” on a package?  I’m there.  Same goes with, but to a lesser extent, the word “improved”.  Put your product in an interesting package?  Shit!  I’ll make a special trip to the store to buy your product.  Just don’t make the commercial too obnoxious, otherwise…just take my dollars.

I might have a problem.

Help! My Kids Abuse Their Towel and Cup Privileges!

When you’ve got four kids, you go through a lot of stuff. Clothes, food, toilet paper, you name it. As soon as you buy some type of perishable item, you might as well consider it gone.

My kids, though, they go through two items in particular that drive me nuts. And no matter how often I tell them, no matter how I beg, plead, bargain, or scream, it’s always the same: “Daaaadddd! We’re out of bath towels!” Or my other favorite refrain: “Daaaadddd! We’re out of cups.”

I don’t know if I should admit this here or not, but I can use the same towel, let’s say ”more than once.” My kids? I think they go through two towels per shower. In fact, I know my girls do, one for their hair and one to dry themselves off with. Look, I have long hair (here’s something else I probably shouldn’t admit here either), but I wrap my hair up, too … with the same towel I dry myself off with. You know, that towel that I use “more than once.”

If you’re so inclined (and you best be), you can read the rest of the article, “Help!  My Kids Abuse Their Towel and Cup Privileges“, over at parentsociety.com.
