Whats the saddest breakfast?

Brain and I are setting up her trip to visit me and before she flies back home we are going to have breakfast. She edited that breakfast to read sad breakfast. I edited it to add “What’s the saddest breakfast?” This is what followed: Linda is red. I’m blue.

lol is this a riddle?
No. I’m asking a question. That’s what the ? is for.

20/20

Following the convo, Linda edited the breakfast to add “(Don’t answer, this is a rhetorical question)” I wrote the question expecting her to say: “THIS ONE.” I should have learned by now to never ever try and predict Linda.

greatest man in the world

Today is Bear’s Birthday. He turns 22 today. ;) I know I haven’t posted lately, but trust me, Bear deserves some serious accolades and cheers. I know I’ve done Bear love posts in the past, but this post isn’t about me. It’s about Bear.

Bear’s life started out kinda tough. If you ever get to meet him, you should totally ask him about his life prior to age 16. He has amazing stories. Some of them might break your heart, but they are all worth hearing. I feel honored that I get to hear them.

Bear has a freakish memory. He can remember a ton of stuff. Sometimes it’s not stuff I would like him to remember, but if you ask him about the first computer to use a floppy disk, he’ll probably be able to tell you about it. If you ask him about the processor that he’s most interested in buying in the next 2 to 3 years, he’ll be able to explain to you in detail why he thinks it’s interesting and what it’s worth. However, he can’t remember where he left his slippers from one hour to the next. Sometimes I think he should have gotten a Ph.D because he would make an awesome absentminded professor.

Bear has freakish senses. He can smell, see, hear, taste and feel things that I swear to you, 99.9% of the population does not have the ability to smell, see, hear, taste or feel.

He has a high pain tolerance, but he’ll start saying ow at the slightest hint of pain. He is not stoic.

Bear is a conundrum. He can be lazy and ambitious in the same moment.

He has the most PECULIAR sense of humor. It isnt dry or crass or any of the normal kinds of humor that you run into. Often I feel bad for him because I am not a good audience for his jokes.

Bear is a serious geek. That freakish memory of his doesn’t just have computer info in it. It also has anime and video game knowledge. (My mom and I made the creatures below after he asked for them. If you know what they are, comment and make his day.)

Bear knows how to cook amazing meals as long as they are only meat and starches. He is trying really hard to get better at cooking vegetables. He cares about our health and he cares about feeding us well.

Bear tries to be a great husband. He is a great husband, but part of that is that he makes those attempts. It makes me feel very special and lucky that I benefit from this.

Bear is a straight arrow. He won’t lie or cheat or steal or take someone else’s credit or betray his sense of right and wrong or take more than he is given for anything.

He is extremely shy. This post is going to embarrass the hell out of him. I can’t wait.

Bear loves his house and spends. countless. hours. trying to think of ways of improving the lawn, roof, curb appeal, decor, furniture.

He likes cuddles.

He hates getting up in the morning.

He is always sweet when I have to wake him up. He sometimes will say “I’m awake” in the middle of a snore.

He hates going to sleep at night.

He has a blog, but he doesn’t post.

He loves Pepsi with a dedication that is incomprehensible to me. He will talk about Pepsi the way that wine aficionados talk about vintages. His favorite Pepsi is from a can with real sugar. I got a flurry of IMs when Pepsi rolled out Throwback.

He always says Grace before eating.

He’s agnostic.

Did I mention he’s a conundrum?

He worries about zombies. He even owns a guide to surviving the zombie apocalypse. He’s never read it.

He likes to say he’s “old as dirt”. Don’t listen to him. He’s been saying that for as long as I’ve known him. He was pretty young when we met too.

I think this list ended up being more of a, how much of a riddle can one man be? The answer is Bear.
