Since I've been on the road for the last week, I thought I might share some of my deep thoughts from the trip.
1. Restaurants advertise Chicken Tenders. I don't know about the Tenders but I predict huge sales if someone comes out with Chicken Chewies. Doesn't that sound fantastic?
2. There are two kinds of people in the world: those that go to someone's house and use the bar of soap that's in the shower and already in use by the host (sequentially, not simultaneously), and those that bring and use their own. I am of the latter category. I've no interest in pulling hairs from other people off the soap I'm considering applying to myself. Ew.
I've been informed that everyone falls into the former category and I'm just plain wrong. So, are you people completely disgusting or am I right?
3. If your house is less than 3,000 square feet:
a) It probably doesn't need statuary or fountains. I'm not talking about the small frog or Buddha in the garden. I'm talking about the 20' tall plaster statue of Woman with Lute that's takes up half of the front lawn. Scale people. It's a principle we can all embrace.4. When driving past a field with at least one bale of hay, it is always funny and never annoying to point and shout out "Hay!"
b) It doesn't need a name. It may be Twin Oaks to you but it's just another house on Elm to the rest of us.
