So there we are in this tire smoke filled parking lot, blue and red lights flashing, and we are all just laughing uncontrollably at how stupid this whole situation is. So after a minute or so everyone sort of stops laughing. I ask the cop if he wants to give it a go and we all start laughing again. and the cop just says "[expletive] it, go home guys."

I laughed all the way home, hell I'm laughing now.
You are lucky you were not shot dude.
I'm white. I don't have to worry about that.

I had a white cop grab his gun because I "Moved toward him in a threatening manner." I got out of my car after he pulled my ex wife over for the 4th time in 2 weeks and walked towards him with my arms out my showing my palms. I went off on him about him grabbing for his gun, and then went off on his shift commander.

That's scary AF. I'm pretty sure in our case though the cop knew we were just two guys out horsing around. It's a small town, even though I didn't know him, he probably knew who we were because everyone knows everyone.

Am I the only one who, when picking up a banana, holds it to their face like a phone and says "hello" before peeling and eating?

Just remember it's banana to mouth and not mouth to banana and you'll be ok

I just realized that I haven't had a single sip of booze in over a week. The last time I had any was at (and after) softball on Thursday, August 8. I'm going to correct that as soon as I get to the airport in about an hour and a half most likely. It's Friday. Might as well have at least one beer before I leave Boston. Probably won't have enough time between flights at Dulles but as soon as the wheels touch down at Lambert, I'm heading straight home to drop off my luggage and then straight to the bar. I'm hopeful that I can get to the bar before 8pm to take advantage of Power Hour!!!

My wife's friend that I don't like comes over too often. I really dislike it when I come home from work and she's at our place. I'm tired, I've just commuted. I just want to turn on the game, put on some music, and talk to my family. Instead I have to hang out in the awkward air of this person I wish would just go.
