      Haha the podcast version would be excellent! Maybe someday. I do have a good delivery when I try and make a point, or at least that’s what I tell myself based off of a presentation I did and the marker said “Good delivery” lol.

      Glad you enjoyed this!

    2. I need family and friends like that.
    6. As soon as I read this, I had a picture in my head of walking through the city streets, ringing a big bell, and yelling, “Bring out your dead!” And I immediately laughed and felt ashamed at the same time. Because how horrible is that image during a pandemic?
    7. Is someone using your feet as pillows? Are you being held against your will? Blink twice for yes.
    19. I’m with you. In spirit. At a safe distance.
    22.5. Thank you for that… I’m totally ignorant. Though I assume that’s a Tim Horton’s thing? Fun Fact: Dunkin Donuts calls them Munchkins.
    25. “Put me back in there! I’d rather become charcoal than continue this exposure to your room temperature!”
    36. You’re likely better off. Overrated, in my opinion.

      25. Bread is so particular

    Let’s talk about All Elite Wrestling! I watched it a little bit on Wednesday night and loved it. It’s hard to put into words but it’s just a better product. They market it better. It’s more exciting. It’s more interesting. I think maybe the key is Jim Ross. The guy’s voice just does it for me. AEW is gonna dominate soon!

      I love AEW! It’s what wrestling should be. They actually care enough to tell stories and it’s not just thrown together for no reason. I’ve been meaning to do a blog post about it. Might do it soon!

  8. Tom Brady is no longer a Patriot but nobody really cares right now. That ought to tell you what kind of a world we are living in. Excellent list, bro.
