I think we can all agree that our world is one big mess right now. A lot of it is the result of the pandemic. It has wrecked the economy. Ruined our social lives. Killed off 250,000 people. Produced an even greater level of disruption in our society and is probably putting our actual country in real danger. How can we know when there’s no one following national security briefs?
We’ve got two separate vaccines that look like they may be ready for use pretty soon, but of course it will be Biden’s administration who will be in charge of its administration. They can’t even make appropriate plans. In the middle of this massive national crisis, Trump is going to pull troops out of Afghanistan. He would be no means be the first president to do that. Presidents — Republican and Democratic — have done the same and not just one. It’s just that no one has done it quite this close to the end of an administration and given the timing, it’s hard to imagine that this isn’t another attempt to play politics with other people’s lives. He seems to have no problem watching us die because what is he doing?
Playing golf. Wow.
Is cereal soup? Why or why not?
Soup is soup. Cereal is cereal. I don’t think I ever considered one as the other. Am I missing something?
What are some interesting ways to answer everyday questions like “how’s it going” or “what do you do”?
I spend a lot of effort not going near anyone who will ask me either one of those questions — unless they really want to hear an answer. These two questions (especially “how are you”) are high on my list of really annoying questions. Mainly, it’s because the “askers” don’t CARE how I am or what I do. It’s just mouth music, something to say to break the silence.
What was your favorite toy growing up?
Dolls. All of them. I had a lot of dolls and loved them to death. I still have a lot of dolls, but they live on shelves. Dusty, but not being dragged face-first on the sidewalk. I actually gave away about 50 of them recently and I’m sure someone made money on them, but I didn’t. I hope they went to good homes.
If you have a pet, and you could ask it three questions, what would you ask?
- Why do you beg for food you don’t like and won’t eat?
- Really, no kidding — how ARE you?
- What do you have against the dog who lives next door? You aren’t enraged about OTHER dogs, just that particular dog. He’s never done anything to you, so what’s your beef?
What’s one simple thing society at large could do to improve our world?
Stop hating people you don’t know. Talk to people. Read a book. Read a newspaper. Check your facts before you assume you know anything. Then check once more! Let’s all make America intelligent again!
