The Best Card Game EVER

Yesterday my wife, daughter and I went to Buffalo Wild Wings for the very first time. The experience there is another story for another day.

After we order the food, we play the waiting game. Well, not literally. Actually my wife and daughter played a different game as of the result of our child’s creative mind.

The Art Of Mastery For My 5 Yr Old

How many things in life do we take for granted?

Things we do daily – sometimes even several times per day – that we don’t even think about. Usually it’s not until we can’t do them anymore that we realize how fortunate we are.

Or perhaps, as in my case, when you watch your child do simple things early on in their life do you begin to feel the same way.

There’s always a fine line as a parent between you helping your child, doing things for them, or you letting them figure things out for themselves. It’s very difficult to tell which option you should exercise and when.

So on Saturday morning, I sat and watched my Kindergartener for what felt like 5 hrs put on and ultimately tie her shoes.

The Most Uplifting Conversation Ever

I was walking out of my work building today and there are two guys walking out behind me. Both guys were wearing their matching pink t-shirts but were very manly general contractors (that has nothing to do with the story, but was worth noting in my eyes).

Anyway, I could hear their one-sided conversation. One asked the other; “Do you know what’s the number one cause of death in America? Heart Disease. Ya know what’s the number two cause of death? Suicide. Absolutely”.

Well this guy was full of uplifting information on a Monday.

Um, thank you sir

The Best Tip For The Ladies (This One Is Short)

One of the complaints that you always hear from women is that their man doesn’t listen to them.

This seems to be a universal complaint.

Yesterday I was accidentally came across the answer.

I was sitting at the car wash waiting for them to be done. There were two rows of benches in the waiting area and I was sitting in the back.

There were two people sitting directly in front of me, and they were carrying on a very engaging conversation using Sign Language.

I couldn’t help but notice not only the conversation, but how animated they were in their signs. Apparently they were yelling at each other or something.

But I realized that the only way to have a conversation with someone in Sign Language is for each person to play strict attention to the other.

When your eyes are your ears you have no choice.

So ladies if you have a problem with your man not listening to you, date a deaf man and learn Sign Language. He will have no choice but listen to you with his eyes when you speak.

Problem solved.

You’re welcome.
