Cafeteria Politics

Those who know me, know that I’m a fairly even keel, middle of the road kind of guy. I am like that with my political views as well. I’m not a Republican nor am I a Democrat. I hate that America is pigeonholed into a two party system. I like ideas from both sides of the aisle. 

I wish, instead of a rightwing bag lunch or the liberal combo, I could order my politics à la carte. I just don’t understand why you have to choose sides and swallow your particular political party’s ideology hook, line, and sinker. 

I want to do bong rips at a gay wedding, firing guns in the air while having the peace of mind that comes with sound fiscal policy.

I also dislike that every political debate turns into school yard name calling. Don’t call each other libtards or Nazis, we are all doing our best and different life experiences shape each of our ideas.

If it ever gets tiring come sit in the middle with me I will save you a seat.


Summer Daze

Have you ever watched monkeys put together a jigsaw puzzle? This is my afternoon. My neighbor is a hairstylist and slightly OCD. She doesn’t trust anyone else with her hair but she is unable to do the back. She calls my wife to come help her mom cut her hair. 

I show up to watch this debacle and the three of them are watching a YouTube video of the style my neighbor wants. Needless to say it is not going well at the moment. 

There has been much bickering and snatching of scissors. Might be the end of friendships or even a slight murder by the end of this hairdo. 

Did I mention that my wife has little to no experience cutting hair?

Myself, I have been enjoying the show. In fact there should be a reality show based on amateurs cutting a stylist hair based on verbal directions. I would binge watch the hell out of that.
