Just The Notes

Parenting Note #728 – Giving Credit Where Credit Is Stolen

parenting note #728

I feel bad for my kids. I feel bad for all kids, especially the ones unable to go to summer camp, swimming, or do all the normal activities kids do during this time of year.

This year has been the drizzling shits.

Kids, your parents will make it all up to you somehow, I promise.

Either with the greatest vacation ever, a brand new car when you turn driving age, or possibly a country that figures out what the fuck it’s doing someday.

In other news, I need to address a photo on my Twitter.

On Monday night, a reader sent me a photo being passed around in a text chain. The photo is of a sign inside a vintage store in Arizona.

I found the sign humorous so I posted it to Twitter, forgot about it, and went to bed.

I woke up the next morning to 100K+ likes and retweets.

The photo now has over 350K likes. The Today Show reached out about the sign. I told them I didn’t take the shot and I’m not sure where the photo originated.

A few followers pointed out the sign is inside Antique Sugar, a vintage store in Arizona.

Hopefully, their sign going viral got the store a little more foot traffic the past few days – all those people wearing masks of course.

Other Stuff I Did When I Wasn’t Writing On Notes

I started a podcast about the running life with my friend/co-worker Nick called We Run This. Our first three episodes are live.

After getting snubbed by another runner on the trails, I found this article on HalfMarathons.net about the unwritten rules of running.

While Nick and I agreed with more than a few of the points, some were completely ridiculous.

In the latest episode, Nick and I discuss the Unwritten Rules for Runners when on the road.

Please listen and subscribe on Spotify, iTunes, or watch all the shows and subscribe on YouTube.

These Twitter Responses To Question Asking ‘What’s Something You’ve Said Recently That Would Make No Sense In 2019’ Are Hilarious And Sad

A man in Louisiana was arrested for jumping into a pool inside a Bass Pro Shop and his soggy escape is hilarious.

People shared their most absurd wedding stories and I don’t miss going to weddings at all.

And that’s about it.

Stay safe out there.
