Real Life Adults

My friends Dad passed away this weekend. It's the first time a parent of someone I have known has passed away from natural causes. I remember thinking to myself a while back as my Dad gets older and more worse off that it is becoming my turn to be a real life adult. Joe Rogan does a stand up routine about being real life adults just realizing one day in the grocery store line that you are the one that the bagger should call ma'am or sir really shakes you to your core. Not just because you know how much older you are, but because you are absolutely positive that you still don't know what's going on but are being left in charge. Funerals are always sad not just because someone you know has passed away but that nothing puts your own life in perspective faster. So my thoughts for the day...Mom buy the boat, J I'll still visit you in London, promise.

On a more cheery note, there was just a special on the Today Show about hugging and how they are coining it the new hand shake. I love this, because I love hugs. However they were showing the different types of hugs and of course the A Frame and one armed hug were in there, boy do those hugs drive me crazy. I think it's a good way to tell someone I am hugging you out of obligation but would rather not touch you. So let me get this straight you are choosing to hug me and make me feel awkward all at the same time...gee thanks.
