Throwing Little Thought Pebbles at Your Windshield Since 1996

My Stupid Boring July

I have reached the alarmed point in the summer…July is almost over, all 500 days of it, and I have not yet done anything X-treme. As you all know, normally by now I have done enough X-treme activities that I am left happy and content for the rest of the year. But I have not jumped off any buildings, ridden any rocket sleds, or roller bladed down an interstate holding on to the back of a semi. None of those things. No being shot out of a cannon, flagpole sitting or being set on fire for a movie stunt. Nothing. I have done the drone-like “go to work” thing and then the “go watch your kid play baseball” thing, but at no point did I wrestle sharks or attach balloons to a lawn chair and to go for a celestial spin.
I feel like the entire month of July was just a waste, and now I’m going to be all mopey because that’s a month I’ll never ever get back. I completely blew it.

  1. I’m glad I don’t feel that way about my July! See, I read The Big Dump Truck, which is an X-Treme experience all months of the year!

  2. Plus, we read your website, we know you’re more into “X-treme Yardwork” these days. 🙂

  4. My idea of X-treme is having a scoop of peppermint stick ice cream in my banana split, instead of just chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry. Yah, I’m livin’ on the edge!

    My boss is into X-treme work hours lately. He’s been on a tear and those “higher” ie “more experienced” people have to put in more time. Sorry haven’t been around these pages much. He also doesn’t want people to take vacation at a week at a time, if u can believe it. Guess he has no life and wants others to be the same. Although I still get my doyle field time in early morns (2mi a day running). I couldn’t run 100 feet when I was 20.
    I did get out to Via Alto 27 Italian place in Clinton, bit upscale but worth it for a Mr and Mrs Dump night out… Jerry
