hispanic church

After being negotiated into going to church, we attended mass in Spanish. The mass lasted a week, she says it was only an hour and a half but I felt like that as soon as I walked out I was walking back in again. On the way out the priest stopped me and asked me in Spanish if I enjoyed the sermon, I told him “si, era muy emocionante”. He asked me which part did I like the most about the sermon. I tried to think and I just looked at my Colombian girlfriend and asked her in English with a whisper, what was the sermon about? She said “dile que parte te gusto de el sermon?” I looked at the priest, starting to sweat and said “el parte de dios, no tanto de el demonio” He smiled at me and said, in English “good answer”. As we walked away I asked my Colombian girlfriend why was I the only one he asked that question to, she said because you were the only one snoring.

Another true story from my life.



It was Sunday and I was laying down enjoying a lazy day and my Colombian girlfriend told me it was time to get up so we can go to church. I told her that it was my day off and that I would wait for her in bed until she got back. She laid her head on my chest and started to softly rub my arm, gave me a kiss on my chest. She said in the sweetest voice “come with me, like that we can be together in heaven too”. I said “We have to be together in heaven too!?” All I remember after that is more spanish words than I grew up with and my mom doesn’t speak English, thank god she was going to church so she could get some forgiving, didn’t know that there was that many dirty Spanish words in the Spanish language, and that the sermon wasn’t that bad.

27 year old

I went to a birthday party of a co-worker when I was 17. He was going bald and had a hard look. I asked him how old he was turning and he said 27. I just looked at him stunned because I thought he was much older and I said “27, how old were you before?” My other buddy started to laugh and the birthday guy looked at me and said “26”, I just said “oh yeah, that makes sense”. Still couldn’t believe it, he had to be 40 before.

Another true story from life.


divorce with children

The worst part about a divorce is how it affects the children. The effects can sometimes be minimal but can be seen sometimes in their grades as they start to dip, their behavior as they become more rebellious, their lack of closeness, their lack of caring and their lack of a path forward due to the parents not sharing the same plan or principles on how to guide their child.

Sometimes tough love is what is needed sometimes a lending ear but how would one know what the other is doing or what is needed if you are not there all the time?

DEMO DEBATE 01/14/2020

demo debate 01 14 2020

I’m going to make this real simple. In my opinion

Buttigieg and Steyer made the best arguments to be nominated.

Klobuchar had an off night but I think she had other things going on

Warren was good but attacked Sanders in a he said she said matter that should have never made the news

Sanders is the Godfather of the Democrats but was hindered by this he said she said business

Biden needs to keep focus, he isn’t stuttering, he is actually thinking ahead too much and conflating his answers.

Messages were all the same from the candidates with Buttigieg and Steyer seeming to resonate and be steady with their message

Still though a Klobuchar presidency would be interesting

Everyone saw that there was something missing at this debate. It was sort of boring. We all know what it is  …….         ….      Yang!

Whether we like it or not, it’s a television debate and your opponent knows how to work a camera, while boring is probably best for the head of the Executive branch, people watch to much reality TV and are drawn to the person that illuminates, like a shiny penny, so either get on your game or, as we say in the northeast, forgetaboutit…. So get energetic, take a 5 Hour shot before your debate, drink 5 or 6 red bulls, make us believe that you believe what you are saying because I literally fell asleep watching the debate

And for goodness sake, no petty sh….. stuff.
