The IF Factor: Questions Answered #241-250

241. If you could have your spouse say one thing about you to friends, what would you want him or her to say?

"He's just awesome."

242. If you spoke English with a foreign accent, which would you want it to be?

Oh this might be the easiest question of them all...a British accent.

243. If you could guarantee the happiness of any single person in the world because they most deserve it, who would it be?

I have way too many friends who are single, it could be any one of them.

244. If you could learn the total number of hours you have spent in your life doing one thing, what would it be?

Playing MVP Baseball 2005 for the Playstation 2. I literally had to disconnect my PS2 so I would not play it anymore. Still the best video game I've ever played. Just never gets old. And of course, is insanely addicting. 

245. If you had to name the person you know with the best attitude regarding money, who would it be?

My wife. I always thought I was either frugal, or just a simple person when it came to spending habits. My wife takes saving to another step with her coupons, sales, deals, and of course, the occasional e-mail to management when she is unhappy with a service or a product. She always gets her money's worth. 

246. If you could have only one magazine subscription for life, which would you pick?

Men's Health Magazine. 

247. If you had to choose the most necessary thing you do each day, what would say it was?

The five minute period between checking my clock and eventually getting up for the day. Gathering myself with a quick thought process and prayer is always necessary. 

248. If you were to decide on a new punishment for convicted murderers, aside from life imprisonment or the death penalty, what would it be?

The ability for the victim's immediate family and loved ones to cane the suspect in public. Sadistic and harsh? Sure. But so was the crime. Some folks aren't afraid of death and jail. But embarrassment and suffering just might do the trick. 

249. If you could have one extra hour each day to do only one thing, what would you do in that hour?

Blog. Or...maybe sleep because everything else eats up the hours in my day. 

250. If the laziest person you know had to do one thing each day for the rest of their life, what would they do?

Volunteer at after-school programs, YMCAs, or other youth based programs. If you're not going to work, at least help give back to the communities or enrich the lives of others. Just don't be a total waste of a mind.

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 2/18/18

3 Up
1. Aaron Weiss - It shouldn't be hidden or gone unnoticed - Weiss is a hero. The football coach shielded many students during the shooting, and saved the lives of many students. Again, Weiss is a hero, that should not go forgotten in this entire unfortunate situation. 
2. Emma Gonzales - How frickin' cool is this girl?! Her speech this weekend was passionate, it was raw, but most of all, it was filled with empathetic truth. Emma, and the many students recently involved in this shooting have called out our government, and that is so incredibly commendable. Honestly, it is quite amazing to see the political movement of fifteen year olds calling out the President. But this is the new America we are now in. 
3. LeBron James - Kudos to King James on how he handled the situation between him and Laura Ingraham. He could have stooped to Ingraham's level, but instead his refusal to be "just an athlete" is one that is needed to be heard.

Dear Son, The Beginning

So I decided to start this series because after all, this blog has chronicled my life and my thoughts since I was sixteen years old. And while that is amazing to think about - almost, somewhat crazy to believe - here I am almost seventeen years later as a thirty-two year old man on the verge of having his first child. 
With that said, I wanted to continue that open and honest venture that has been here since day one, and plan to lay out all the thoughts, all of the feelings, and everything in between that will be this venture towards fatherhood. 
I've done similar series in the past such as The Unity Road Writings during my engagement, or even The European Chronicles, tabbing my time through Italy and England. But, this one just feels a little different. A little more personal, if you will, and again, that is rather obvious. [Insert "duh" here].
I have no idea how long this will last, or what will happen, or what I will write about in this open space, but I hope to shar…

Dear Son, Wild Imagination

--22 Weeks Old (Before Birth)--
Dear Son, 
As the weeks go by, the reality of YOU is beginning to settle just a bit more. I still don't think I fully understand it all yet, or even comprehend the transition that is taking place in my life right now in awaiting your arrival in a few months, but I am appreciating the journey. I am already seeing subtle changes in me, not overt lifestyle amendments - although, I'm sure that's to come - but simply, a renewed vigor of happiness, and of course, an all new mindfulness perspective. 
After all, I see how happy you make your mom. I can't understand this current stage. How can I? I'm not connected to you as she currently is - obviously - but you make her happy. And that makes me happy. And ultimately, it all makes me happy.

"Just Shut Up and Dribble"

Laura Ingraham of FOX News really stepped in it this week. Her comments to LeBron James and Kevin Durant in regards to their political opinions and her direct message to them of "Just shut up and dribble" has caused a stir among many on both sides of the political divide - a divide that seems to grow daily in this nation.
Rather than wait to pen my thoughts, mainly because I was so fired up to do so, I shared took to Twitter (ugh..I know, sorry y'all) on a Subway ride home after seeing her rather ignorant remarks. 
See below for the quick rant:
