The Friday Fives

1. What is incorrectly perceived as a sign of intelligence?

Being Right handed. It ain’t true, people. There was a time when teachers, parents, and clergy used to force us lefties to move to the right and it messed folks up.

2. What ruins a cup of coffee?

Sugar and cream. Gross. You want to taste the coffee. Coffee is life!

Nicely crafted gin and tonic.

4. What is the best smell in the world?

Freshly roasted coffee; I am lucky enough to enjoy that small at my house a couple of times a week

5. What food do you swear people only pretend to like?

Kale. As a friend of mine summarized Kale use to be a condiment; smething used to decorate the salad bar. I am not a fan.

  1. 1) Fluid public speaking. In days of yore the smart speakers were usually the ones grifting everybody.

    2) Not being dark or thick enough. Blond roasts are stupid. Watery weak drip coffee makes me want to murder…again.

    3) Vodka martini, classic mix, 2 olives, not dirty.

    4) Baking doughs of almost any kind.

    5) Most foods that I used to think this of are now pretty tasty, like brussel sprouts. Greg will put avocados. I am going to land on licorice. Pro licorice people like to say you either like or not. And I say, they are liars…there is only not.

  2. 1. Echoing what Tony said, confidence is often mistaken for intelligence. The loudest person in the room often has the least grasp of a situation.

    2. Excessive heat. Burned coffee is almost as bad as burned garlic.

    3. Whiskey please!

    4. Bacon frying, and coffee brewing. The smell of a morning and of being loved.

    5. Wheel of Fortune. I mean, don’t we all watch it to mock the stupidity of the contestants?

  3. 1) Used to be perceived as smart if you wore glasses. Trust me I know first hand sone real dumb people tha5 wear glasses.

    2) Hot coffee =good
    iced coffee=good
    Room temperature coffee, fuck you!

    3) Ummm I’ve really been enjoying Waterloo grape sparkling waters.

    4) Fresh movie theater popcorn.

    5) Fuckin right Tony! Avocados are gross but the one I definitely thing people pretend to like and are straight up lying is Oysters. I can’t think of anything less appetizing than boogers on the half shell.
