Dear Brick & Mortar Stores

Sometimes I want to pick something up and touch it before I buy it. Sometimes I want it right then. Those are times I go to brick and mortar stores.

My hope is, if things go well, that I walk out if your shop with less money, a smile, and a bag of stuff I went to get.

You know what I don't need to do? Go to your store and be told you don't think those sell well enough to stock but you can order shipped directly to the store at no cost and I can pick it up... some time.

No. I know how to order things and I can also have them delivered to ME and not have to go BACK to your store that didn't have what I wanted in the first place.

So, I get it, you instruct your helper monkeys to offer that service, but seriously, I'm holding a smart phone in my hand. I'm showing you your own website that says you have it. I know how the Internet works.

I also know I have never and will not ever, let a brick and mortar order something for me that I have to go back to get. At least offer to ship it to me. I'll still say "no," but at least it'll appear you're trying to be convenient for me.

I find I'm enjoying my Spam experiments in culinary excitement... namely frying some up and adding it to everything.

It's like bacon in the same way an apple isn't.

If you see Spam on sale anywhere let me know. My blood pressure should go logarithmic if I keep eating it like this. So much salt.

Reminds me of the time I went to the Dead Sea. The water is so salty there the only thing that doesn't float in it is Spam, which has an even higher salt density. It merely rests above the water separated by a molecules thin layer of ionized salt and never actually comes in contact with the water.

So delicious... The Spam, not the Dead Sea. The sea tastes like unbaptized sinners, their sin, and fish poo. I'm not sure which is worse. Tourists, if you're going to wash your sin away, please remember to gather it up into a little baggie and take it with you when you leave. The rest of us don't want to go sloshing around in the detritus of your distilled evil.

Love this song still

Hermione: Hello. I'm Hermione Granger. Are you Tom Riddle?
Tom: Yes. Nice necklace.
Hermione: Thanks. It's a Time Turner. Do you know what a Horcrux is?
Tom: A what?
Hermione: Brilliant. Accio lungs.
SPLORT

I want a smart pocket watch.

Why don't they exist?

Manufacturers, quit being dumb. Think if the things you could do with all that space. And in a case all the time so ruggedized.

C'mon.

Get making so I can get buying.

I've used ancestry.com but what other DNA tests have you used for ancestry and genome data (health type) have you used?

Which were you happiest with?

Any I should avoid?

Other people tweet about politics and world shaking events or cats or inspirational memes... Me? I'm still staying up nights about McDonald's drive thru screen being BSOD.

Get your priorities straight people. It's hard enough to get what you order through the drive thru!
