I had a dream that I was at a restaurant and @sophia was working and I didn't have the balls to talk to her.
There was a large country music "festival" at a local park this weekend. I'm not really a country music fan, but I like live music, so it i wasn't really a big deal.
One thing I notice is how very white it all was... and I kind of really uncomfortable with the gathering of all the white folks. As a white guy, i felt the lack of diversity.
One reason I ♥️ 'Old Town Road' - the world needs more diversity.
@ifixcoinops also... played against the #6 in the country.
@ifixcoinops - whelp I did about as good as I expected I might. I played 3 games and lost 3 games. It was a 3 strikes tournament... last place in a group got a strike. Most of the folks were cool. If I'm free the next time, I'll probably go. Might also head out and spend $5/week between now and then to learn the machines better.
@ifixcoinops I signed up for a Pinball tournament tonight. Just something to do. I hadn't played pinball other then randomly dropping a few coins every once in a while... but no more than one game in a row. Watching some videos of the tables we're playing tonight. Any basic tips?
In response to someone sneezing... (as I deconstruct my beliefs) God Bless you and bless you seem oddly religious. In googling what to say instead.. Gesundheit seems appropriate, but it brought up a larger questions. Why do we acknowledge someones sneeze with a response? When was the last time you responded to someones belch, fart, gurgle with someone that was simply saying... I noticed you did that.
My 14 yo son asked me yesterday if I would mind if he dated someone of a different race. My response to him was of course not, is there anything that I've done that would lead you to believe this would be a problem for me? It kind of broke my heart that he felt that he needed to even ask. I feel like I may have failed when it comes to teaching acceptance.
Happened on this album this morning. Thoroughly enjoying it. Any other Jukebox the Ghost fans?
