Absolutely Useless Facts About Yourself, No One Cares About

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

I ordered two toilet seats. I have never installed toilet seats.
They come with installation instructions.
Do they come with instructions to uninstall the previous seats?

Did you get the correct sizes?
Yes. I am actually quite good at measuring.

Day 1 of VBS is done. I’m doing Recreation and there was a mixup on the schedule so I had the pre-K and Kindergarten kids for an extra 20 minutes. I’m wore out. Also, one of the kids recently learned to flip people off and wanted to share his new knowledge with everybody. Fun stuff

I tried to reconcile with a estranged relative after 5 years, but 5 years apparently wasn't long enough.
I know this as well. Though it's far more than 5 years.

We share some blues; you and I.

Get a cheapie harmonica in E. They are like 5 bucks.

We'll jam for like 4 minutes or something. Eventually.
I'd love a harmonica in E.

I've never had fried pickles.

Should this go in the confessions thread?

The last VBS I was a part of I was a character called "Maintenance Mac." He was an inventor janitor at Hero HQ. Good times. This was a decade ago at the church I grew up in back in PA. I enjoyed that. The brown Dickies pants and blue Dickies shirt I wore for that role are still my work clothes. I just had the pants on today.

VBS. I don't even like the sound of it. They ruined it forever for me as a kid, forcing me up at the crack of dawn for a week, right after finishing 9 long months of school. Standing out in the hot morning sun, waiting to parade into the church, carrying the flags and a Bible. The pledges were cool, though, and I still think about the Bible Pledge sometimes. But then the cookies. Cheap imitations of Oreos, off brand vanilla wafers, and some other sort of chocolate marshmallow thingy that I still am not sure of. And watered down punch to wash it all down. Hawaiian, or perhaps Delaware. I don't think either of them are still made anymore. We did make some cool popsicle stick items and flower vases, I have to admit. I think these days of VBS are over now, though. Some even do it at night. But I don't remember anyone flipping people off.

But tomorrow? Tomorrow morning early, Lord willing, I'll be playing golf with a couple of buds at a course I've never played before, and I'm looking forward to that.

I've had three gin and tonics this fair evening. I'll sleep good tonight.

I've had the same amount of Sambuca.

Also, am I the only parent who has to bolt skirts to the bottom of the boys' beds to keep them from shoving all their dirty laundry under there hoping I won't see it?

I grew up in a three bed one bath house. My parents had three sons. I shared a room with my middle brother for several years. When I finally got my own room and the youngest brother moved in with my middle brother we moved his bed. There were several pairs of "very soiled underwear" jammed between the bed frame and the wall. He received a spanking for each pair. A bed skirt would not have prevented this.

Growing up in the 1960's, we had a family hamper where all clothes needing laundry were stored. It had a lid. Don't pile your dirty, nasty, boy panties and socks on the TOP of the hamper or death ye shall see. Mondays were linins day. The only day you got to throw your sheets in a wad over by the washing machine. Oh, glorious Monday's of youthful sheet wad tossing, I miss thee.

There was nothing under our bunks (brother & I).

Nothing.

Ever.
