Friday Fives – grownup-ness edition

What was your worst attempt at hitting on someone that actually worked?

Lets say I had a great move or line.  Let’s say it’s so great it helped me bag the love of my life.  Now why I would give that away?

What is the most shitty thing about becoming an adult?

The in-escapability of work.  You have to work.  Always, for the rest of your life.  It’s not that I don’t like work, or that I am looking for a way out.  Sometimes, though, it just feels like a trap.

Especially since I have an awesome life.  Great job, great home, great car.  Truly, I live the American dream.  All that came from work, and to keep it means I will work every day for the rest of my life.

However, all of this has taught me the value of work.  I used to work as a fraud investigator.  You would be amazed how hard people work to not work.  Meaning, I watching criminals who were incredibly smart and worked incredibly hard to work around the social contract to make money… to never have to ‘work’.  Yet, these people are working crazy hard… AND having to look over their shoulders and will eventually lose it all.  If these guys worked half as hard at a legitimate job, they could have been very successful.

Conan and Andy have a bit: What is a sentence never spoken before.  What could you contribute?

Well, Apple, you sure made that process easy and transparent

You just won $200 million in the lottery.  Now what?

Lawyer up.

What’s an irrational fear you’ve had since childhood that you still haven’t grown out of as an adult?

I think all my fears are rational.  Well, spiders.  I fear and dislike spiders more than is probably necessary.
