I like pizza with these three toppings together: jalapeno, onion, and pineapple.

I failed miserably trying to do Lent, even taking Sunday and SPD off as Fred suggested. I'm thinking of going on a mini-Lent, from now til Easter. Maybe make up for my failed first attempt.

Little League season is now upon us and my youngest grandson is playing. Of course, right off the bat (sorry), I take my little grand-daughter to the concession stand. There's no sno-cones, no popcorn, no huge 24-oz cups of root beer. What kind of ballpark is this, I'm thinking. So I asked the teenage girl working in the stand for some peanuts. We don't have peanuts, because of allergies, she says.

I didn't say anything. She's a teen, volunteering for this, and besides, my grand-daughter is there, ordering her skittles and small cup of frozen pickle juice.

Got a diet Coke?, I asked. Sure!, the girl replies, looking at me like I'm crazy. Maybe I am. Maybe next time I'll just walk right up and order a frozen pickle juice Popsicle. Little League concession stand, indeed.

I should have kept my mouth shut at Bible study tonight.

Still, it's hard to just sit there and listen, like all the others do. "The faithful wound their friends, while an enemy is deceitful with many kisses.".

Try telling a spouse the truth, when asked if their butt is too big.

There's a little pub about a mile from my house that I've considered my pub since it opened about five years ago. I just went there for the first time this last weekend. I don't get out much.

I ate quinoa yesterday at lunch. It wasn't bad.

Our grandsons baseball game ended and my wife and I headed home. I was hungry for shrimp fried rice and crab wontons. No way, says the wife. Especially no to the place I like, with the buffet. So home we go, to soup and beans, with crackers. I refused to eat. You're pouting, she says. Sure I am, I replied. I have no taste for this tonight. It's childish to pout, she continues. Not necessarily, I replied. I'm an adult, and I can pout if I want to. I think that's a misnomer, or oxymoron or something, she maintains.
What the hell? Ranch style beans are a long way from crab wontons, that's all I know. And very much worth pouting about.

There's no such thing as a butt too big.

Confession: I like big butts. (I cannot lie)

I once sat in a "how to teach Sunday school class" class and someone went nuts on a verse and everyone said "Amen!" and I interrupted with, "yeah, that all sounds good, but you're taking it out of context and that's not what it says."

Open your mouth and let 'em know.

I sometimes tell my wife that I am thinking about shaving my head and buying a kilt. She changes my mind rather quickly.
