Not everything needs to be wrapped in a 500-word post, but they're still worth a comment or two....
I have a giant file cabinet at home where I store all the information people share that is none of my damned business. Fortunately, it's a virtual file cabinet with infinite capacity, since I seem to be the recipient of TTTTTTTMI.
If I could ever figure out exactly who "they" are, I'd remind "them" that it's my life and "they" should STFU about it.
The worst job in the world belongs to the guy who cleans the bathrooms at the airport. Sisyphus had it easy by comparison.
My retirement spreadsheet is looking better and better as I get closer to death. Not quite sure how I should feel about this one.
I won a case of wine at a charity casino event a while ago, not by being a good gambler, but by being a nice guy.

I’m always impressed by the old cathedrals in Europe, started by men who knew it would be their grandsons, or great-grandsons, who would be putting the bell in the tower.

I feel sorry for people who live in areas where the weather is nice all year. What do they have to talk about when they meet an acquaintance on the bus?
