What stops being cute after the age of 13?
Birthday parties. To quote the great Dave Barry – “there is a time and a place when you should stop expecting people to be excited about your birthday. That is the day you turn 7”. I say that, interestingly, roughly a week away from my birthday. As you might imagine, I regard myself as the exception to all of this. You can send gifts care of the website.
What is something you hilariously misinterpreted as a kid?
I assumed water was free. Like, I understood we had to pay for electricity (due to my father cautiously over-managing the thermostat in the house… like all dads)… but I had assumed water was just magically free. Our right as a taxpayer. Ironically, we now live on well water… so it is free!
If someone leaves an abandoned baby on your front porch what will you do?
Raise him/her liberal and compassionate and polite. OR… call the authorities. Probably should call the authorities… what with what happened last time and all.
What two types of people are there?
Ø Politicians that pretend to be compassionate, but really don’t give a shit (Democrats) and
Ø Politicians that at least have the stones to admit they don’t give a shit about anyone else (Republicans).
Me? I am a liberal, for sure… but I distrust them all. That being said, I think Obama was a dope ass President, and I am 100% confident history will recognize same.
What is a skill that almost everyone in our grandparents generation had, that almost none of us have today?
Basic self sufficiency – making clothes, baking, working on a car… shit like that. I work for AAA Colorado, and I can tell you the amount of adult males that have no idea how to change a tire is terrifying. Good for business, sure… but bad for society.
Not saying I AM super capable. BUT, I am more so than my Dad was. Also, I can change the oil, change a tire, can cook, and can play the guitar like a mother f’n riot!
