How long has it been?

I'm Back!!! It has been too long since my last post. I am truly sorry for that. Life throws you into so many new and exciting directions. I have been enjoying life, trying to hang on and avoid drowning. I have been doing a little work on the site. Going back and editing some posts for clarity. Mistakes have a way of slipping by you when you are a third rate writer. I mean that sentence with complete honesty. I try to look at the bright side. I used to be a fifth rate writer.
Some things that make my blood pressure rise up:

  1. People who say "I completely changed my attitude and thinking on a subject. I did a 360 on the subject." No you didn't. You did a 180 on the subject. A 360 would put you right back where you were. Learn some geometry.
  2. When you say I'm Sorry to someone for something that has happened to them and they say "It's not your fault." I didn't say it was my fault. I did not apologize. I said that I was sorry that whatever happened to you happened.
  3. This one really gets my goat. It has happened to me several times over the years. I am fat. I get that. I don't try to hide it because I couldn't even if I wanted to. With that being said, people will tend to think that if someone else doesn't want their food and does not want that food to go to waste, then I will eat it. This part of it doesn't really bother me. Usually I will eat it. I didn't get fat for no reason. The part that gets me is what they always say. They will point to me and say, "Give it to Mikey, he will eat anything!!". They are of course, comparing me to little Mikey from the old Life cereal commercial. The only problem is, they are all miss quoting the commercial! The commercial is like this; the other kids don't want to eat the cereal and one of them says, "Let's give it to Mikey." The other kid says, "He won't eat it, he hates everything." Then the kids are amazed because Mikey actually likes the cereal. Somehow in the last 30 years, people remember he hates everything to he eats everything.

I will try to post again soon.
