Simple Pleasures

The part of the church where the silliest things happen. Conversations that sound like they belong in the youth room will be moved here.

A healthy, just firm enough to maintain a shape bowel movement that piles up above the water.
This becomes more meaningful as you get older.
I just finished with one of these. Wonderful!

I was given two pieces of advice from a former co worker. He was in his late fifties, but had the soul of an eighty something curmudgeon. We were pounding rivets in the belly of a plane one day when he rolled over and patted the beach ball that was his belly. "I've been bound up for days now. I need to take a dump before I blow up. My son, when you get to be his age your whole life revolves around your next bowel movement." The second piece of advice came when a group of us were on a motorcycle trip somewhere along the coast of North Carolina. He was packing his gear up before pulling out of the campsite and he said," My son, never travel without a spare pair." I turned around to find him proudly displaying a very large pair of whitie tighties that probably were very much older than me.
I was considering bombing this thread by mentioning the simple pleasure of letting loose a big ol' fart when no one is around to complain.

But you guys have already gone way beyond there....

I have always found it more pleasurable when someone else is around. On our second date, we were at my mom's house and I let a huge one out and the look on my mother's face was priceless. Then we stopped by on our way back from the honeymoon and let another one rip. My mom shot me another dirty look and I said, "What? We're all family now."

I see all lines in the sand as very wide swaths, big enough to park a 75 Cadillac Fleetwood on. There's lots of room to stand on before it is actually crossed.

Indeed. A bad bow tie knot is my version of a bad hair day.

That's only the 126th piece of unsolicited advice today! haha.

I get up for work at 4:30 every day ... it has been hell :lol:

Funny you say that. My wife was a champion college fencer at Cornell. Still holds their record. When we took our girls for the first time at 6 and 4, I was shocked at the happiness when they figured out they were allowed to bean each other with sabres.
