The Years Have Been Kind

November 27, 2011 // Posted in Living, Movies, People (Tags: , , , ) |  Comments Off on The Years Have Been Kind

Watched the movie, Robin Hood, with Kevin Costner, and in one scene he goes to find a woman that he knew as a child. She comes to the top of the stairs and talks to him, but she is old, frumpy and not really attractive. Not what he was expecting. The only nice thing he could think of to say to her was, “The years have been kind to you.” She thanked him and then asked him to leave.

I’ll have to remember that line when I see people at my high school reunion next time.

Take Away

The words have changed one me and I don’t know when they decided that the word “carry out” was not a good term for getting food from a restaurant even though you don’t want to eat there.

I used to order from the regular menu and them them to pack it up “to go.” Then I would drive over there, park the car, go inside and pay for the food, and take it all home with me to eat in front of the TV instead of in a huge dining room filled with other people eating and sometimes their bratty kids screaming and whining. It’s just more pleasant to eat at home when you are alone.

I would call that process “carry out” or “to go” but now the proper words are “take away.” I do understand the meaning behind the new words, but what was so wrong with the other ones? Did we really need to change the words?

Shake It

Stayed up too late and the TV had nothing but infomercials on most of the channels. I saw a commercial for an exercise apparatus called the shake weight. I was, like, “WTF?” It is a shaker for women to supposedly tone their arms. Get real. Its for women to get practice jerking off a guy. I guess the guys got tired of the girls saying that it took too long for them to get off cause their arms get tired.
