Truth Is: I know I haven’t been blogging much this week. I’ve been fighting a ferocious sinus infection. We’re talking the ice bag on face, Anbesol on gums, Advil every chance you get kind of thing. Honestly, I haven’t had one this bad in a long, long time.
Truth Is: If someone cancels a date due to a sinus infection, please know it’s actually in your best interest. Please don’t respond with the following: “Really? You’re bailing over a sinus flare up? If you don’t want to go out with me, just tell me.”
Here’s the thing: Unless you would like your date carrying a drippy ice bag, downing Advil, snotting, drooling from a numb mouth thanks to copious amounts of Anbesol, and likely face-planting in her food, be happy about a cancellation.
Truth Is: I’m really looking forward to seeing The Hunger Games, but I would love for people to stop saying it’s the next Harry Potter. No, it isn’t. They’re two completely different stories set in two totally different worlds. Besides, Harry Potter stands alone.
Truth Is: Tim Tebow is now a Jet, not Bennie (B-B-B-Bennie and the Jets…sorry. Great song, though).
I’ve heard people say that Tim “needs to change to fit the NFL. He needs to act more like a football player.” These folks aren’t talking about his game; they’re talking about him as a person. Ooh, it really boils my blood!
Change to fit in? Well, bah on them! I say dare to be different. No one should ever, ever, ever make you feel like you have to fit some absurd standard “they” deem appropriate.
Tim Tebow is a true role model, and if people don’t like it, then maybe that reveals a little something about their true selves. I hope more than anything Tim has the chance to shine in New York.
Truth Is: My dad is hilarious. He brought out his fan and there were two big “X’s” drawn in Sharpie marker over two of the buttons.
Me: “Um, Dad? Why are there two big X’s on your fan?”
Dad: “Because they remind me those two buttons are evil.”
Dad: “Yeah, well, they screw up my settings, make the thing go WHOOOOOSH, and then it just stops. Thought it was broken a time or two. And you know I always end up pushing one of those two stupid buttons. Not anymore,” he said grinning like the Cheshire Cat.
