Moaning and Groaning with Don Flamenco
Why do people put their heads in tight areas? I’ve never understood anybody getting their head stuck in between two posts in the stairwell. It’s pretty easy. If you don’t need to put your head in an area that it may not make it out – don’t do it.
My favourite old interview comment is from the Beatles back in the day.
Reporter: Is Ringo the best drummer in the world?
John Lennon: Ringo isn’t even the best drummer in the Beatles.
Currently I’m playing coed slo-pitch with coworkers. Nobody takes things all that seriously. Except for the 62-year-old man that we played against this past week. He questioned the rules of the height of the pitch. Then the ump went back at him saying that it’s always been that way. The 62-year-old man was not satisfied with this answer. He then began to throw the ball extremely low to prove some weird point. We play in an “F” league coed slo-pitch league and the score was 11-3. I would get more fired up if I had $5.00 on two raccoons racing against each other in the parking lot.
I turn 40 next month. I’m not sure if I’m supposed to feel different. The only things that have really changed are that I actually care less about things, and it really affects me when I don’t eat healthily. Oh, and when I first get out of bed it takes a minimum of 3 minutes to walk normally. Generally, it’s a hard Frankenstein walk with a bunch of bones cracking, and a couple of fu**s thrown in there as well for good measure.
There is always one person in a group of friends that just says the wrong thing at the wrong time constantly. Asking a woman if she’s pregnant when the answer could be 50/50 is maybe the most dangerous conversation that you could ever have. I would rather go to a Luke Bryan concert at an outdoor stadium in Detroit in – 23-degree weather than load that question up.
Once again Descendants Brewery is doing something cool. They are having an Arrested Development trivia night. Stop doing cool things. I dislike your beer. Now, I still have to go to your stupid brewery because I can’t pass that up. Oh, you also have delicious pretzels – fu** you.
Does anybody sit down with a bag of pretzels anymore? They aren’t a bad snack, but really lack the flavor of others out there. I just can’t envision myself walking up to the cashier with a bag of pretzels in the shopping basket. Walking by the all dressed chips or Doritos section would be difficult. I can eat these plain brown weirdly shaped things that make my mouth extremely dry… or I can rip into a bag of Nacho Cheese Doritos and not feel my tongue and make a mess of everything. Doritos all day.
Nothing will make somebody more upset than you getting the controller greasy from chips while playing video games. Chips were blamed for losing to Piston Honda in Tyson’s Punch-Out so many times back in the day.
I’m fairly certain anybody that created those characters back in the day was extremely stoned. There is a dude that’s from Paris that has a special dance across the ring with a rose in his mouth before he fights Little Mac. He was so fancy that I wanted to beat the crap out of him as soon as I had my chance. No idea why he upset me so much. Felt like he was taunting me with that rose. Like I was easy prey. The anger is all coming back now.
Flowers are extremely stupid. Sorry for those that enjoy receiving them (Sara does not for those that were thinking in their head “oh, well his wife might not think that”). Flowers don’t do anything. They don’t entertain. They smell ok I guess. They sit there and then they die. If I could eat the flower for some crazy nutrition I may be happier with them. Put gummy worms out and look at them. They are pretty and are delicious after.
Top 3 ways to have people do things for you in a family setting
3) Mention the long hours that you’ve been working. “I’ve been shoveling all day, every day for the past 2 days – my back is just about going to give out.” When they ask what you’ve been digging – just moan at a bit louder tone than usual.
2) Mention that you haven’t had time for just yourself in an awfully long time. “I’m always thinking about everyone else. You know it’s tough.” Generally, people will not question you on this one, but if they do… Just say in a bit louder tone “It’s tough”. Doesn’t mean anything, but may get you off of the hook.
1) Make sure you have a mighty moan and a groan when you first sit down on the couch. Everyone needs to hear this. You will receive at minimum one, possibly two drinks brought to you.
