The other day, Festivus came up 2/3 of the people here had no clue what it was.
I would have a lot of problems with those people...
For what it's worth, they're great people.

I probably am more aware of trending pop culture garbage and vices for young people, than millennials.

How many of you have heard of Juul?

I got socks for Christmas (early family gathering for out of town folks) and am really excited about them.

I went from looking 21 to looking 40 in the span of like three years. Are people going gray a lot quicker these days? I'm bad enough but some of my friends from college are even farther along. I bet it's somehow RedBull's fault.

A 4 year old challenges you to a foot race to the mail box and you've got to kill yourself to beat him. My wife looked worried while I was catching my breath. The little punk.

I got in a bit of a foot race with my nephew over the weekend. It didn't end well for me.
