Would You Rather: Questions Answered #11-20

11. Would you rather spend three weeks cleaning the bathrooms at LAX or spend 48 hours under observation in a psychiatric ward?

I would probably prefer to spend the three weeks cleaning the bathrooms at LAX. 48 hours under observation really can be damaging, and quite frankly, if it's in isolation, that would be a nightmare. At least at LAX there is a silver lining experience that could come out of that work. 

12. Would you rather get married through an arranged marriage or spend the rest of your life being single and never dating anyone?

Arranged marriage. That may sound crazy, but there are at least some odds of liking the person you are set up with. Heck, it might even be a hit. Being single and never dating, really, never sharing life with anyone - that's absolutely zero odds. I'll take my chances with the arranged marriage.

13. Would you rather have the next year off at full pay or get paid double at your current job for the next year?

Paid double. I actually love my job, and to be paid double with the same vacation time would be fantastic. Plus, the extra money would give me so much more opportunities and financial support for options for my vacations. 

14. Would you rather eat three whole raw habanero peppers or perform CPR on a stranger?

CPR on stranger. At least I'm potentially saving a life, the worst, helping someone in dire need. What would be the point of eating raw habanero peppers? 

15. Would you rather live without TV for the rest of your life or give up coffee for good?

Give up coffee. I like coffee, but I also like tea. TV is essential for me in baseball season. Coffee is not worth that at all. Not even close. 

16. Would you rather give up your smartphone for two months or give up alcohol for a year?

Alcohol for a year. With my job, I survive on a smartphone. And personally, from my music, to blogs, to reading news, to whatever, my smartphone - much like everyone these days - is very essential. 

17. Would you rather give up Instagram forever or eat the same meal for the rest of your life?

Ummm, bye Instagram. I love ya, but I like food more. 

18. Would you rather not use email for a week or be hungover for four days?

Being hungover for four days sounds like hell. Really. I hate being hungover for a few minutes. I would give up e-mail for a week for sure. 

19. Would you rather win a free laptop or a trip to Hawaii?

Hahaha - hello Hawaii! I'll buy my own laptop, thanks. 

20. Would you rather eat roadkill for the rest of your life or have every person in the world sound like Gilbert Gottfried?

This is a rather weird one. Actually, seriously weird. I'll go with having everyone sound like Gilbert Gottfried. Sounds like a "them" problem. Give me something else to eat and enjoy rather than "roadkill"

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, 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.

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…

"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:
