Random Thoughts

Sometimes, whenever I eat M&Ms, I like to hold two m&m's in between my fingers and squeeze as hard as I can until one m&m cracks. I eat the cracked one, and the one that didn't crack becomes the champion. Then I grab the other m&m, and force it to compete with the champion in this deadly game of m&m gladiators. I do this until I run out of m&m's, and when there is only one m&m left standing, I send a letter to m&m's brand with the champion m&m in it with a note attached that reads: "Please use this m&m for breeding purposes."

    You should really get out and meet people. Maybe get a pet, like a gold fish.

    I mean a dog or especially a cat would run away if they saw you eating crushed M&M’s one at a time. Maybe not the first one, but by the third one, they would start trying to figure out which door would be the best opportunity to run.

    I don't know how much of this tale was farcical, but I usually sort them by color first and eat one color at a time. And I'm ok with that. Also, I hate Skittles.

    I used to do this with Skittles. The M&Ms seem to just disintegrate. However I don’t send the good ones to Skittles, I just eat them. :tongue:

    You don't tell her you read the manual, and you tell her you know what the problem is, and you fixed it, because that what men do, fix things
    sure it has a flat response, and sure it has a lot of detail, and yes, it has good and clear lows. But is it enjoyable to listen to? Does it make you grin ear to ear? That’s what really matters.

    I always start with 1 and finish with 1.

    It’s the “in between” that’s the big variable...
