I didn't feel like an exotic species, I was peacefully enjoying a halva-fest when I rather felt accused.

I think she was a little bit panicky, not understanding the language or being able to read anything. She kinda pounced on me in an unsettling way. We were in Greece but she asked me whether I'd feel safe travelling to Turkey. ['Cause, you know, it's just up the road an that].

Accused? Wow, that's weird and I didn't read that into your post either. Very strange indeed. I'm surprised this person even made it to Greece with the refugee issues.

That looks a bit like an aching colon, if you ask me.

It was the way she said it. Loud. Piercing. A bit spitty. It shook me from my meditation on chocolate halva. (I should have nutted her.)

I like to read the obituaries in the paper each day and I thought it was a strange that someone wrote that a guy who was born in 1922 "died unexpectedly."

No one dies of natural causes anymore. They're always specific unless the family chooses not to mention it.

My daughter, son and I went to a salsa tasting festival in my hometown. Here the kids are, eating fried catfish, beans and rice from a local food truck.

One of my favorite bars is closing down. Pacific Coast Brewery in Oakland. They were kinda on the forefront of serving craft beers made in No. and Central California. I've met a buddy of mine who lives in Berkeley there occasionally for years. Some BCBers have met my buddy Kevin - Minnie, Hatz, Quaco. We're going to try and visit one last time this month.

Looking like I'm going to have to cancel our first vacation since The Girl was born on account of delays in starting two new campaigns.
That's what I get for thinking I could get a week every three years...
Let U be the set of all united sets, K be the set of the kids and D be the set of things divided.
Then it follows that ∀ k ∈ K: K ∈ U ⇒ k ∉ D

I used to think about doing that when the kids were small and it's a big mistake. Luckily, my wife talked me out of it.

Think twice about what you're doing.

Can someone, anyone, fill in for a week? Are you really that indispensable?

I'm working on it, man, but the company isn't keen on approving the time off...
In this case, Isabella would be staying home with her grandma anyway, but still, yeah...

I call my son almost every afternoon just to check in and see if everything's okay after school. We were having a little conversation and he made a crack about my intelligence.

I told him I was going to make a dentist appointment. He asked, "Why?" since nothing was wrong with his teeth.

I said, "There will be."
