I often hear people say that a decision is a no-brainer, meaning it is relatively simple choice.
That’s fine, but by the same logic I think we should say that a decision that requires some thought is a “brainer.”
“I am not sure what type of bread to buy; this sure is a brainer,” one might say, since bread purchasing is a difficult task. Continue reading “This post about no-words like no-brainer and no-doubter is a no-thinker”
After hurting my back recently in an impressive sports injury, I had a lot of time to think.
Most of my pondering was about important topics such as why bad things only happen to me and what the Avengers will do next, but a few were focused on items that you think about when you have an injury.
I am sharing a few of the thoughts here in order to see if you share any similar questions or epiphanies when you have a sore back, sprained ankle or painful ouchie. Continue reading “A few items you think about when you have an injury”
Most people are familiar with toes, but too often these amazing feet fingers are only thought of as a group and are not recognized for their individual talents.
Much like famous bands such as The Beatles, The Eagles, and Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem, though, each group of toes is filled with individual appendages that would still stick out even if they were all alone. Continue reading “Top Five Toes”
When I was growing up, I was lucky enough to have a comic book subscription.
I don’t know how or when it started, but each month for several years, the mailman delivered the latest issue of Amazing Spider-Man to my mailbox. It was easily the best mail I received each month and I always looked forward to it. (Full disclosure, it was also the only mail received most months.)

I am writing to you in order to share my concern over some of your recent work. Frankly, it has been substandard to say the least. Continue reading “An open letter to Spring”
The President is very concerned about witch hunts.
Our expert team of fake investigative reporters have determined, though, that he is also obsessed with other types of hunts and they have put together this list for us. I should add that they are probably greatest fake reporters ever with the biggest fake minds, and this is the listiest list you will see today, which is the greatest day ever. Continue reading “This post is a TOTAL WITCH HUNT!”
As a high-level (of age) athlete, I am fortunate to take part in several recreational sports activities in my community.
And in order to benefit humanity, I have decided to document my sports season for 2018 here on this blog. You’re welcome.
Actually, I thought the blog would be a good way to motivate me to get into better shape this year, play lots of sports and share some fun experiences. I am often involved in recreational soccer and softball, along with the famous Athens Jogging Club. We are trying to get a basketball game going again, too, and I plan to start exercising more in the summer, so this series will look at interesting (I hope) aspects of those events, as well as a few others from 2018.
