It’s time to get outside and exercise! Or is it?

It’s spring and I’m excited about getting outside and getting back into shape!

The weather is beautiful, it feels great to be outside and I have no reason not to jog and exercise more often.

Well, work is a pretty good excuse. It’s been busy lately and I have been tired after some long days. I’m too tired to exercise. Continue reading “It’s time to get outside and exercise! Or is it?”

How are 6 paper towels like 9? Things that annoy me in grocery stores

While I love grocery stores and talk about them way too much, there are also several things about them that annoy me. Here are a few of these items:

What do we call them? – Is it a supermarket, market, grocery store or some other name? Supercenter? Hypermarket? I looked up a few definitions and found that I rarely shop at a grocery store, since those businesses officially only sell food items, while supermarkets sell food and other items.

Friendly grocery store clerks can make your whole day

It’s funny the impact that someone can make on your life, often without even knowing it.

The grocery store is a great example of this because it’s a place where you are constantly interacting with people you don’t know while you are simultaneously avoiding people you do know because you look terrible (at least that seems to happen to me a lot).

President Obama has been wiretapping my phone, too!

While I usually try to say out of politics, I feel I must announce that President Obama has obviously wiretapped my phone, too.

Believe me, I’m as shocked as you are, but the evidence is easily the greatest evidence in the history of the world and it all points directly at the former President.

Why would he do this? What evil plot is he involved with here? Continue reading “President Obama has been wiretapping my phone, too!”
