My girlfriend had a rescue dog that was a border collie that must have been crossed with velcro, because we never did anything as a couple — it was always a threesome.

My girlfriend had a rescue dog that was a border collie crossed, I think, with Velcro.  No matter what we did – walking while holding hands, watching TV, going for a drive, you name it – we never did it as a couple... it was always a threesome.

Random acts of kindness... My buddy said last week he was sitting outside his camper reading a book while the family camped next door had 5 kids all riding their bikes around the campground.
A boy about 3 or 4 came to a halt in front of my buddy saying the chain came off his tricycle. It would of taken 5 minutes to dig out a wrench and fix it. But my buddy was leary of any interaction with a minor which could be misinterpreted these days, so he didn’t.
It’s a damn shame the country has come to this, avoiding kindness because of the politically correct vigilantes.

The LinkedIn generator is a hoot. Especially
if your cringe factor is low. My LinkedIn
"friends" are pretty well curated so I don't
get too many posts like that; but they are
out there. And this works for profiles too.
