    It feels akin to begging because it is begging, using children as props.

    For years I bought wrapping paper only from school fundraisers. It only stopped when rhinosaur moved in. He would just get it at Target.
    I have also bought magazines and nuts, and once I got some pizzas.
    When you're single and living the downtown lifestyle on an engineer's salary, and there are no grocery stores or Walmart near you, $6 for about 3sq ft of really pretty wrapping paper that will be brought to your desk at work seems like not that bad of a value proposition. Too bad kids don't sell door to door anymore.

    Re: breathing too loud

    My parents have been together many decades, and I often wonder how they made it so far. But I think I have an idea. They're both introverted. They've slept in separate rooms for as long as I can remember. My mom is an artist/musician and when you look in her bedroom, there are peach colored walls paired with fluffy pink rugs, her art hanging on those walls, and a beautiful white bedspread that looks like a wedding dress and lacy white curtains. My dad, idk what his job title is exactly but he does something with roads/signs/public safety, and when you look in his bedroom, everything is stacked up perfectly, and his clothes are folded like a department store. He's got a grey comforter, white walls, only white horizontal blinds, and zero decor. He has tons of shoes of the same brand and style which he "rotates." He goes to bed at like 8pm and wakes up at 4a, whereas my mom goes to sleep at midnight and wakes up at like 10am. It makes sense

    Anyway, the moral of the story is that my parents sleep in separate rooms that look how they want it to look because they would rather do that than hear each other snore or be consumed by each other's stuff.

    There's also the couch. Couch is a good home away from home

    This is what Rev text me after he left the house;

    "Sorry about the breathing. If I could get a plastic surgeon to sort it out so I could breathe normally, I would. It only takes it to be slightly blocked to be really blocked and I hate that it makes me sound like Darth Vader. I'll get some nasal strips to help it so I don't make so much noise."

    Lol. The apology and absurd reason for the apology made me laugh.
    All truth passes through three stages:

    First, it is ridiculed.
    Second, it is violently opposed.
    Third, it is accepted as self-evident.

    sounds really passive-aggressive to me, lol. but I have a migraine so maybe that's why

    edit: but if he actually gets nasal strips nvm. Keep us updated on the nasal strips news

    It was literally like being woken up by Darth Vader though...

    I can't remember what he said happened to his nose (that's how attentive I am), I think it was broke years ago, now he sounds like a pig that's been hog tied.

    Breathe through your mouth, moron!
    Lol.

    That ain't it, chief

    I don't like big bang theory, but I was forced against my will in one of my classes to watch an excerpt of it where Sheldon used positive reinforcement with chocolates. If you were to give him a chocolate anytime he got somewhere close to your desired outcome of something then begin to administer the chocolate on a variable ratio schedule, I think you could train him a bit better vs. outright emasculating him

    Is there a lesson / personal reflection you could take away from this story Rokki?
