That's exactly what a Markov-chain would say!

A friend of mine who teaches elementary school, taught her class, “don’t yuck my yum”

It was like a class mantra, all the kids knew and understood the phrase. So, if a kid brought a bean burrito for lunch, and another kid said “gross! I hate beans” burrito-kid could just say “don’t yuck my yum”

It became the perfect phrase when one student liked something another student hated it. Quickly, it moved from the tangible (food, smells, textures) to the intangible (music, religion, quality)

By the end of the year “don’t tuck my yum” was woven into the culture of the class. They actually used the phrase LESS by then, because yuckers would check themselves before tearing anyone down.

And that class of second graders moved to third, secure in the knowledge that it’s ok to love the things you love, even if other people don’t.

I didn’t think I wanted another pint glass from the Kansas City library summer reading program but turns out I really dig the winged cat and also libraries.

I just put on a DVD and I feel so retro. Like the menu is here and it has options like setup. So weird.

welcome @Adam_Stambaugh ! Sorry for the registration hoop but there's a lot of weird spam accounts that try to sign up every day.

I just explained batman to my kid, that was fun. He said that's not batman that's just a guy. It's Bruce Wayne kid!

I just used some rhubarb scented hand soap and it’s heckin great.

Okay you’re good on the ice but can you cook? This is a deeply strange timeline.

Today I hit max dad when I mowed the lawn in a baseball cap, sunglasses, hockey jersey, cargo shorts, and slide on clogs with socks.

If you want to know how things are here sometimes I ignore my actual cat while staring at Neko Atsume.
