Smell vs. Smell

Don't think of the bathroom theme as being important to me, think of it as one of the more surprising places to find silver lining...
I walked into an invisible stench cloud this morning and quickly decided to pull my shirt over my nose for the duration of my visit.

Although this childish behavior is severely frowned upon in third world countries for the offense to the natives, that's not the reason I didn't want to get caught washing my hands while seemingly smelling my own torso... I just don't want to be caught looking silly any more than I already do. At least not at work.

So is the lining that I didn't get caught? Nah. That's too removed from the situation. The good news is, my armpits were a tad stinky.
"What? Why the heck is that good news?!" you ask.

2 reasons:
1 - because they were a tad stinky, they did a superb job of covering up something far more horrifying to the olfactory bulb

2 - Because my nose was down my shirt, I didn't have to wait until I stank through 2 layers before noticing that I needed a little DEO.
And some water.
Dehydration is notorious for sending out pungent pheromone-cover-uppers.

Inefficiency isn't always bad

I am by no means intending to be inefficient, but when I have to walk all the way back to another floor because I completely lost my train of thought... It's nice to realize that my pedometer is happier for the occasion.

the queens we use would not excite you

The bad news is that I had to spend one night in Bangkok.


BUT: the world is apparently my oyster. That’s good.

Cartoons aren't ALWAYS cool...

I just hit my head so hard that I was silent. Not that silence is incredibly difficult for me, but when you hurt yourself and scream, it’s one thing… when you smack your forehead on what I call a “triple corner” and just crouch silently in pain, it’s a different level. I don’t think I’m bleeding,




I saw those stars like in a cartoon. That was kinda cool.

Bald is valuable

Though I went bald prematurely, it had the advantage of making me look experienced and credible in the business world even while I was in my twenties.

Raisin Bran... CRUNCH!

SO Riley was toddling around and rifling through the pantry in our peripheral. Apparently the term "uh oh" is now in that select set of words that trigger the always-running-radar that trumps your attention.

She had picked up the box of Raisin Bran Crunch upside down and dumped a nice amount onto the floor as the bag uncoiled itself. The cuteness serves as quite an effective disarming tactic.

Silver Lining:
"I always wondered if it was worth using a bag clip on the bag inside a cereal box... now I know it's worth it" :)

or dehydrated yellow lining....

SO when I found the silver lining in this scenario, I had to get it in writing...

I walked into the bathroom here at work and both urinals were... unflushed. I thought to chase the perp down with a bottle of Gatorade because he was indeed dehydrated. But instead, I just flushed both, for sanitary reasons, and then chose one.

While I was washing my hands, I thought: Hey, at a guy who is that nasty didn’t touch the handle that I just touched. :)

Silver lining found.
