Things I’ve Been Learning Lately, vol. XVI

Hi, hi, hi!  I’m back.  Happy Friday!  How’s your world?  I hope it’s well and that you’ve been having fun and enjoying your October.

I think my favorite thing that’s happened to me this month is that I got called out for using my phone during a concert.  I was texting someone the address of the venue while the musician was in the middle of telling a story, so he joked that I wasn’t paying attention and that I didn’t care about his story.  It was a good time.

And then he covered “Folsom Prison Blues” and I died.  And THEN he covered “Mercy Street” by Peter Gabriel and I died even more.  I’m actually blogging from beyond the grave right now.

(P.S., if you don’t know Mike Mangione, what are you doing with your life?  Fix that right now.)

Anyway…

I haven’t really touched this blog much in the past three weeks (other than simplifying my tagline and changing my About page) because life’s been busy.  But last week I finally decided to start an editorial calendar for this blog, so I could plan and schedule posts.  So now that I have plans for posts, I should be able to return to posting pretty regularly.

Here are just a few things I’ve been learning for the past few weeks.

  • Traveling nearly two hours for retail therapy and lunch is worth it if you live in the middle of nowhere.
  • Finding ripe avocados in West Virginia is a really hit-or-miss thing. It makes me sad.
  • On the subject of un-ripe things, did you know that some bunches of green bananas just won’t turn yellow? The missionaries bought a green bunch one day thinking it would ripen but after two weeks they were still as green as the day we bought them.
  • I think baseball might be the one sport that even non-sport-fans like me can enjoy.
  • Jesus is so, so sweet. I’ve just started reading “He and I” by Gabrielle Bossis, and Jesus’ words to her are startlingly gentle.
  • There’s nothing like finding that you enjoy whiskey to make you feel like a real-life adult.
  • Adele is queen of everything.
