Kind Words

“Wise sayings often fall on barren ground; but a kind word is never thrown away.” – Arthur Helps

Say Thank You

It seems like saying the words “Thank You” is becoming a lost art. This applies from minor things, like holding a door for someone, to more significant things, like giving someone a ride, alike. My hope is to help this lost art be found, so if someone does something nice for you, no matter how large or small, please say the words.

Thank You

Sore Body

Today my body is sore and has been since Saturday. I feel like I have a pulled groin and torn ab at the same time. Most of the time there isn’t any pain, just a mild annoyance. It’s kinda like having a bruise that only hurts when you bump it, but you keep forgetting about and accidentally bumping it. Unfortunately in this case it’s not just bumping it, it’s also moving certain ways.

Simultaneously not being able to stretch nor engage my midsection makes things like getting out of bed, sitting down, loading the dishwasher, and walking up stairs a guessing game as to when it will switch from annoying to real pain. This means I’ve spent most the weekend doing very little other than moving from my bed to the living room chair and back, plus catching up on Orange is the New Black. I’ll explain why my body is sore later, after I’ve fully wrapped my head around it.

Can’t Believe You

“I’m not upset that you lied to me, I’m upset that from now on I can’t believe you.”

Las Vegas

Last week I spent 6 nights in Las Vegas, which is at least 3 nights too many. The trip was for cheer meetings, but since we were there we figured we might as well eat well and see some shows. I had 2 nice dinners. The first was at Gordon Ramsay Steak and the second at Prime Steakhouse. Gordon Ramsey’s was the clear winner between the 2. Show wise I saw Mystere, Absinthe, and O. This contest was much closer, but I think I’d have to give the crown to Absinthe based on me being crowned the interracial lap dance champion.

P.S. – The passed out guy on the floor pictured below was not with us.
