My Thought Process

My younger sister likes to poke fun at me because she says that my mind is always running. I admit it is true. It was confirmed again this morning. I rolled out of bed, hopped in the shower, and before 6 AM I had thought the following thoughts.

  • I think that I will make it a point to always learn the name of the waitress when she first introduces herself. It seems that every time I am eating out I want to call her while she is walking by but there is no easy way to get her attention.
  • Speaking of eating out, whenever I am in a salad bar I always like to try one crouton while I am still in line. More often then not, I get back to my seat and realize how good the croutons are so I have to go back to the salad bar. If I try one there, and like it, I know that I should grab more. Also, I will go back to my table thirsty and more excited for the Coke waiting for me.
  • The tubes inside of toilet paper rolls should me made of clear plastic so that you can see how best to remove the bar so that you can easily replace the toilet paper. I think that more people would change them when it was time.
  • I wish that itches were visible on your skin so you, or others, could scratch it on the first time.
  • The two most annoying habits when you are first learning to date are boys that think it is funny to poke a girls side and girls that think it is funny to take a guy’s baseball hat off his head. I hope those traditions stop soon.

(The gem today comes from Papas Fritas. I admit I like it because the beginning kind of sounds like “Billie Jean” and the girl’s voice is cool. The song is called “Way You Walk“.)


  1. My wife thinks its funny that I always remember the waiers/waitress’s name but I have found that makes the dining experience better. They always seem more friendly when you call them by name and always seem to take care of you more.
    A good thing about your plastic tube idea is that you can save trees. While they’re at it why don’t they make it so that you can take your used plastic tubes and refill them cheap, or turn them in to be used again…

  2. and i can’t type… dang it, i hate that no matter how many times you reread your post you always miss atleast one word. Thats suppose to be waiTer’s name dang it.

  3. Always mulling… Just once I would like to see your thought process. I mean, all these points are clearly viable to have, but I just want to know how they lead from one to another in a 20 minute period. But I agree with the dating one especially. That is one of my worst things. Thanks for the gem!
