Cell Phones and . . . .

I’ve seen women, mothers with toddlers and babies in the back seat, smoking (which is stupid and selfish) and holding a soda in their left hand, texting with their right hand and guiding their van with their knee going 70 miles an hour on the expressway.

I’ve attempted to shop with women, yes all women, holding up the line or blocking an aisle because they are talking on their telephone while shopping for groceries. If they were heart surgeons and discussing a patient, I would certainly understand, but they are not. Sometimes I hear people talking about what they did the night before and other trivial conversations.

I’ve been in public restrooms where women are talking on the phone while in the stall!! I flush on purpose more than once just to let the person on the other end of the call know where their fellow friend is while talking to them.

Couples in restaurants not talking to each other but with a cell phone glued to their ear.

I am glad I am a baby boomer. I know I have more years behind me than in front of me. I’m not sure I could live my life where people never focus on where they are or who they are with, but more interested in what is happening on facebook or some other trivial nonsense.

People Watching

Filed under: Fashion — by ReidmillerWrites @ 9:28

I am not sure if everyone enjoys people watching, but I find it fascinating. I sat on a bench in one of the local Malls just to watch the people and the styles. I was the minority, one of only a few not sporting a tattoo. I saw a women in her thirties push the waist of her skirt down so her tramp stamp was completely visible.
I also watched how people dressed. There were a few women wearing tight spandex pieces showing every bulge and the no no panty line.
Many women who wore shorts should not wear shorts. A few kept tugging at their crotch to pull their shorts down. I do not wear shorts. I have big thighs and in shorts I look like a sausage. I mostly wear skirts and ankle length pants in the summer months. I did not see anyone braless, which was refreshing, although I am not a fan of bra straps on display.
The young and old dressed appropriately and actually looked quite dapper.
Moral of the story, no panty lines, tramp stamps are tacky and keep the bra straps under wraps.

Drug Addiction

Filed under: Living a Healthy Lifestyle — by ReidmillerWrites @ 9:28

Ok, you are using drugs or someone you loves is always drunk or high. First you need to accept that they have a brain disease. The first use was by choice but the poisonous toxins in drugs and alcohol cause the brain to crave more. It seems illogical but drug addiction isn’t any different than cancer. When someone has cancer they meet with one or more doctors to determine the best treatment plan. Addiction treatment is the same thing.

Do not let the lack of money or insurance be an excuse. If you continue using drugs you will develop cancer, diabetes, hepatitis, liver damage and heart disease. Treatment for these illnesses is far more costly than rehab.

Don’t be upset if someone cannot just stop using. The power of the drugs is unimaginable and the cravings are powerful. There is only one answer, professional treatment.
