The Friday Fives

1. What’s the best cereal?

I don’t eat much breakfast cereal nowadays and if I do it is some sort of multi-whole-grain muesli kind of thing.

But in my cereal eating days, I really dug “Golden Grahams.”  Just enough crunch to milky sogginess.

2. If you could de-stress the nation by saying only one thing, what would you say?

The titles to my soon to be completed best selling business tomes:

Volume One:  “Chill The Fuck Out!”


Volume Two: “Get Your Shit Together!”

3. What’s your ‘HOLY SH!T IT WORKS!’ moment?

I look at this question as a validation of a life hack that I use.

It’s this – eat your Cheetos from the bag with chopsticks – still yummy but no cheesy powdery goo on your fingers.

4. Who would you call if you caught bigfoot?

Who I always call, Julie.

5. Which scar on your body tells the best story?

My five-year-old self running through the glass part of a storm door headfirst and cutting up my face and hands.  Four scars that are still quite visible 50 years or so later.

    5) Hmmm, I have a glass door childhood story with big scars on my shoulder. But the faint and almost undistinguishable scar on my scrotum harkens back to being impaled by a 5′ bar of cold hard steel, bruising the jubilees and missing making me a human popsicle by an inch and a half and hitting my pelvic bone instead, stopping a much deeper and organ-scrambling experience.

  2. 1) Fruity Pebbles are delightfully disgusting.

    2) It’s so simple, follow the words of Bill & Ted, be excellent to each other.
