Daily Tidbit of Wisdom #220: Having problems finding buddies to go out with to Monster Truck events, pro wrestling matches, etc.? Pretend till you befriend! You've probably seen some guys at the gas station, or bbq/ribs shack, or Walmart, and wanted to introduce yourself. Just walk right up to those guys and act like you have some smidgen of the confidence your mama and the good Lord gave to you. And if you get nervous just remember this tip: you can't spell 'afeared' without 'ear,' so just stand and listen and nod your head and smile.

I feel like at my age now, I'm trying to pare down friends not make new ones. I also enjoy solitude much more.
God bless!

I ordered my first pair of glasses that are bifocals on Saturday.

This makes me officially blind in 2 different ways at the same time......now i have no distance or close vision that is clear....go me.



I am hoping that it helps with the constant headaches.....i haven't had a headache free day in months...:(

I went to the Sports Authority website and they had some backpacks on sale for one penny off. One penny.

Stock up, big sales like this only happen once in a while.

I have to get some cavities taken care of at the dentist tomorrow, and I'm pretty terrified. I've never had a cavity in the past and I don't know what to expect when the dentist treats them.

I'm sorry, James. The dentist is never my favorite place but I've found my anxiety about going is worse than the actual visit itself. Getting fillings isn't bad. They'll numb you, then drill them out. The drill is loud and feels strange. The sound is pretty crazy, I think. Don't be afraid to ask for more novocaine if you're uncomfortable. Once the drilling is over the filling part is easy peasy. I'll pray that everything goes super smoothly and comfortably for you!
