My collection of tie-dye t-shirts has doubled. I have two, which is two too many. I have a drawer full of bandanas. I rarely wear one on my head or around my neck anymore. I grew a beard. Two winters ago, I let it get more than an inch long. The beard makes me look older and more interesting.

I used to know a guy who would cross the street instead of walking past a graveyard. The same guy, I saw attack a payphone with a crutch. I heard later that he was rumoured to be a latent homosexual. There was a lot going on with that guy.

I worked with a guy who was obsessed with the weather. The same guy was obsessed with the Dallas Cowboys. I heard later that he got fired from Big Mother under a cloud of secrecy. I should have asked Crazylegs about this when I saw her a couple of weeks ago. There was a lot going on with him too.

I know a guy who creates detailed google maps showing high tension power lines, water treatment plants, city dumps and french emersion schools. The same guy, once won a lip-syncing contest and a trip to New York City. He doesn’t have a drivers license and I heard that he never bought a home.

I read a story last week about a submarine smuggling cocaine caught when it got lost off the coast of some country. They had to surface when they ran out of gas. Everyday I read statistical infographics that sometimes surprise, sometimes delight and always make me go, “hmm…interesting.”

I don’t like to watch Youtube videos with a question mark in the title. They always disappoint. I’ve learned that the question mark indicates clickbate. I’m critical of having my time wasted by clickbait.
