And my father moved from...Illinois to Indiana. And his father...not sure if he moved. But his father moved from Germany to the US. And my paternal grandmother was part American Indian and those people moved with the bison.
Is there other news? Oh, yeah. I've hit the wall on sleeping. I'm able to go to sleep whenever I want (say, 8.00 pm) but then I wake up at 4.00. Then at 6.00. Then at 7.00. Then I just lie awake for an hour before the time when I'm supposed to wake up. So it's kind of a waste. Better to go to bed at a reasonable time and sleep for a normal eight hours. Can play video games and whatever in the evenings.
Let's check Tinder. Hey, a response from this 30 year old Australian woman who I recently matched with. Looks positive. Quite lengthy. The key here is that she's 6'1". So tall women have a smaller potential dating pool. I've gone over this 100 times.
Ooh, also a match with an 18 year old who's really 16. Those are always weird. Paging Simon Price.
You know where Simon Price is these days? He's a 50 year old gay dude who got AIDS and lives in a hospice in Brighton. According to his Twitter, he's also senile and doesn't remember anything past 1996.
Anyway, did I tell the "teacher's AIDS" story before? I think I did. You know what I need? New childhood memories. We can't keep talking about the same old shit.
Anyway, this guy Jimmy made up a game called "teacher's AIDS". This was in the fourth grade at the height of the AIDS scare. The game was like cooties. Not sure if that game exists in the UK. But instead of giving people cooties, you give them teacher's AIDS.
The teacher quickly heard this game being played and put a stop to it. I don't know if that 45 year old married woman was promiscuous or an IV drug user or what but she was really pissed off by this "teacher's AIDS" game. It seemed to really hit home for her.
Cooties is such a stupid game, though. It's like "tag" but you're immune from being tagged by breaking out some invisible cootie spray and applying it liberally. So the first person might be able to quickly pass it on but once you hear the word "cooties" everybody gets the spray out and then you're fucked. There's no cure, after all. All you can do is pass it on but you can't pass it on to people who have been inoculated.
On tv, you sometimes hear of cootie shots. I don't think that we had those at our school. It was only the spray. I think both are equally effective but the spray is clearly the less invasive procedure. The shots also seem to be delivered by other kids (via a punch) whereas the sprays can be self-administered.
