Why are mini Hershey’s ranked so low? They are darned expensive! I can’t believe Skittles, Nerds, and Sour Patch ranked higher than almost all the chocolate bars!

Trick-or-treaters who don't like chocolate are welcome to donate to the nearest adult. And remember kids, y’all are lucky to get any free candy at all.

I'm only commenting so that I'm considered "thoughtful, wise, insightful, and good-looking" all at the same time. (But seriously, this was funny. Loved it.)

It's also useful to put aside a piece of writing for a long time so that it falls out of your short-term memory.

I spent 5 years trying to write, rewrite and publish a scholarly journal article. At one point, I left the text aside for a full year. When I came back, I found a major stylistic error in the first sentence.

I had read that document so many times, but missed that error because I was so used to my own text.

When I was 13 or 14, I wanted a pair of Earth shoes so bad. We had to drive to a store on the University of Tennessee campus, because despite having a half-dozen clothing stores on Main Street, my little town had no Earth shoes. Then they cost TWICE as much as any shoes I'd ever worn before. I was so proud of them! But a few weeks later, I realized that walking around with your toes elevated above your heels was not all it was cracked up to be.

That brings to mind the episode of Friends when Rachel and Joey dropped spaghetti on the floor in the hallway and both got down and ate it off the floor. I guess it depends on how hungry you are!

They have a school on Sarumon street? That sounds a bit inauspicious.
What's a "Nutsschool"? A school for nuts?
OH! A "Utility School". That makes it . . . well . . . not much more clear to me. A school for nuts to complement the school for bolts?

Barbara Bush was always one of my favorite people that I would have liked to sit down and have a cup of coffee with. Near the end of his Presidency, George declared a National Broccoli Day. When asked he said "no, I do not like broccoli and I am President and do not have to eat broccoli." I wished that on his first morning as First Citizen, Barbara would have made him a broccoli and cheese omelet telling him "Your no longer President, eat your broccoli."
