It's amazing how fast time is going right now. Two little kids at home, a beautiful, hot summer, concerts, and weekends away... and blogging has gotten pushed to the back burner.
I don't mind - I never really feel the pressure to blog, and while I appreciate all of you who read and comment, I don't feel an obligation to keep you entertained daily with my self-important drivel. And I figure it's less likely you'll tire of me if there are occasional lapses in our semi-weekly one-sided banter.
That said, I am ready to get back on the bandwagon! I have about a million posts floating around in my head because you guys, so much funny stuff is happening! That's how I know I need to blog more... when on a daily basis I see something and it's like "What the fuck? Someone else needs to see this shit!"
On that note- funny random thing #1:
I was hanging out at my sister-in-law's house doing a little HIIT workout (which kicked ass, by the way), and sweet woman that she is, she brought me a beer after we were done. And it was an IPA from O'so brewing company. Hell yeah.
I noticed, but didn't pay much mind to the little warning label:
|"WARNING: bottle may contain hop cone"|
I shit you not, for some reason I thought it was a June bug, and the 12 year old girl that lives inside screamed a little bit.
I alerted Kathy to my predicament, and we went to the kitchen to find something long and skinny we with which we could fish out the intruder.
It wasn't a June bug, but what plopped out was equally disturbing:
|A freaking hop cone! Who knew?|
Half pickled brussel sprout, half pine-cone, half something else that reminded me of
O'so beer. Oso tasty. (see what I did there? I'm going to get a slogan job* after that one, for sure)
*Upon further review, "slogan job" sounds inexplicably dirty. Please replace with "motto-maker" in your head.
