Sometimes you just need to take an inventory of how you feel about the important things in life.
Candy corn’s cool older brother. However, I eat one & it’s almost too much sickly sweet mellow-cream confection in just one shot. Yet I continue to go for those dang pumpkins. Everytime.
Geico vs. Allstate.
They both have great commercials. Mayhem vs. the gecko. I think I choose Mayhem.
George Lopez getting canceled.
My only question is this: How does the least funny person on earth even get a show to cancel in the first place?
Poor customer service.
I recently went to a burger joint where the service was terrible. I was told “cash only” when I tried to pay with a debit card. Luckily, my friend spotted me the two bucks I needed. I was handed my food and the worker never came back to take my payment…so “Cash or it’s free”? I liked that idea. I awkwardly left the $2.81 on the counter. Best burger of my life though. I’ll probably go back.
Teenagers and their relationships.
I see a teenage boy kiss his girlfriend and I just want to inform them both of the expiration date on their high school romance. I fight the urge…but it’s tough. Furthermore, how do parents put up with buying dinner or gifts for their son/daughter’s significant other? There will be absolutely no return on that investment. Let alone invite them on family vacations? I would have to kindly ask the boyfriend/girlfriend to take the family picture on our trip…I don’t want to have to photoshop them out later. I’m not that tech. savvy.
All the Christian books about hell these days.
I hit up the local Family Christian Bookstore yesterday, and boy were there a lot of books about hell. It almost seemed like a fight taking place on a bookshelf. Love Wins, Erasing Hell, Heaven is Real, Christ Alone: An Evangelical Response to Rob Bell’s Love Wins…they were all placed next to each other. It was intense.
I detest the preachers on campus screaming at students that they are going to hell. (Yes, hell is real. I agree.) The Jesus of these “preachers” is not the one I serve. Their goal is not to get these students to turn to Christ or even tell about salvation, it’s just complete condemnation.
What pressing issues have been on your mind lately? Seriously, how do you feel about candy pumpkins?
