Are the posted questions getting worse?

  • Took a couple of days off to start potty training and get back online this morning to discover my employer has designated Juneteenth to be a company holiday.

    So, yay. People can attend vigils and protests on Friday.

    That's great!  I had already requested Juneteenth off for different reasons.  I had planned on starting my birthday weekend by attending an online board game convention, but those plans changed when my identical twin brother had a heart attack.  Now I'm going in for a cardiac stress test.  And, to tie things back, the online board game convention was cancelled, because the parent company remained silent on Black Lives Matter, so the organizers quit in protest.  To say nothing is to take the side of the oppressor.

    I hope your brother gets better fast. I hope your stress test goes well.

    And agreed on your last point. Silence is violence.

    And now, how to put the brakes on a migration project...

    Break your wrist on a bicycle ride so you only have one hand to type with and no immediate backup person to help out...

    Yeah, I managed to do one heck of a number on my wrist, thankfully not my "strong" hand, but still...

    Try doing all your typing with one hand...

    As they say in the theatre business, next time, break a leg 😉

    Gee Brandy, I would have thought that you would have been potty trained by now...

    My brother had a stent put in and, in his words, he is doing "fantastic."

    As for me, I'm optimistic.  I think that my dancing has helped me to stay in better shape than my brother, and I've also cut out Coca Cola and most salt from my diet resulting in me losing 15 pounds since the start of quarantine.  I've also been practicing reiki, which I find very much like meditation.

    Wow. Not only does my name get spelled wrong, but two people act as if they've never heard of a pork chop launcher and are courting danger!

    The sad thing is, the only way to keep the toddler on the potty is by surrendering my tablet so he can play toddler games.

    The good thing is, 4 days after starting this and one day not being able to do it at all because of a work emergency, he's finally figured out to tell us when he's left something in the potty because it means he gets to play with the faucet (washing his hands is a necessary evil to get to splash water) and get a cracker or cookie in response. I started out with stickers. They worked a bit, but he much prefers his grandpa's gingersnaps.

    He hasn't quite figured out how to tell us when he needs to go potty, so all we can do is get him seated on it until he goes. I'm really hoping this isn't going take very long.

    I'm sure he's on Tik Tok already.

    Same here. My otherwise borderline insanely obstinate son figured it out within a couple of weeks. My daughter was months and months of struggle. Although, lead to some great stories which we retell to her horror.

    Frankly, I'dve been happier if it had been my forearm instead of the wrist, probably in a cast for a while and done, instead of surgery tomorrow...

    I've not had to ever have something like that done to an appendage.  You won't need it but I wish you both the best of luck and a speedy recovery, Jason,

    I'm too busy dancing to take videos, but I might be able to find something online.
