Hello old friend.
Alas, the tree is gone, chopped up and put in the very compost bin that once stood as its impromptu tree stand. We thank you for your service, and look forward to another slow death in 2018.
Now it gets tense. The tree has officially been passed over for two consecutive garbage day pickups, and now the owner has to make a decision: Hope the garbage company takes it, wait for a good Samaritan to do the job, or actually deal with it. Meanwhile, it’s starting to turn fairly brown. We’ll be watching!
I feel like I’ve met a few writers in my time that have pulled the same stunt…
Everything you ever wanted to know about RC Cola (and why it never became popular).
Still my favorite soda… though I don’t even drink Coke any more…
Me: Hey kids, look, a flock of cows!
Zoe (13): Brown cows!
Me: Uh, yeah, a flock of cows!
Zoe: Yeah, brown cows!
Beckett (9): It’s not flock.
Me: Yeah, flock of cows!
Beckett: Flock is for birds.
Me (frustrated): Yeah, flock of cows!
Beckett (rolls eyes): Never mind.
Since upgrading my brand new Lenovo Yoga 3 to Windows 10…
- webcam doesn’t work
- iTunes won’t even load
- keyboard randomly doubles up on characters about 1 of 100 times you press a key… but about 1 out of 5 times you press the letter C
- and there’s no help for any of this online
Is it just me or are the April Fools’ Day pranks of today getting entirely tiresome? I think it’s because the internet makes it too easy to pull them off. How about painting the Golden Gate Bridge blue or releasing a herd of cows inside City Hall? Now that’s a prank, people.
Case in point. (I can’t tell if Eater even got the joke…)
So UPS, let me get this straight.
Someone ships an express worldwide package — 58 pounds — to Ghana, Africa, using my UPS account number, but from an origin that’s about 2,000 miles away from where I live. The bill for the shipping is over $1,000. I almost never ship anything, let alone anything to Africa.
You don’t see anything just a little bit odd about that scenario?
Dixie cup filled with Froot Loops cereal. OK then.
