Not really related, but have you noticed that the bigger the deal people make posting that they are done with TAM is inversely proportional to the time until they return.

@CharlieParker, How annoying. Why did they even bother to ask you that? Maybe they'll be using those two years to improve their business sense (and common sense too!).

I had to give a friend some harsh truths.

He's the prototypical "nice guy". He initiated his divorce primarily due to lack of intimacy in the marriage. I don't blame him but unfortunately, he assumed he and his ex would continue to share in their kids' celebrations together. Aside from his monthly alimony and child support, his ex wants nothing to do with him. He gets his feelings hurt whenever she plans big family gatherings to celebrate one of the kids life events and doesn't invite him.

I tried to be supportive but I did tell him this was part of being a divorced parent. He walked away from all of the bad but also all of the good that came with being in that marriage. He wasn't happy with my comment. {Sigh}

If I want a certain kind of life, I'm responsible for making it for myself. I can't rely on someone else to do it for me.

Re: What's on your mind - Part 2

Some people think the word 'intimacy' only applies to sex until they realize there is a whole lot more that goes into intimacy.

I could give up chocolate but I'm not a quitter.

Aww man I hope he’s just taking a break. If he’s left for good that’s a bummer.

Between banishments and voluntary absences, quite a few people I care about are now MIA, some permanently. Just sucks.

I still think about a lot of the regulars who’ve left without a word, like @Haiku, @3putt, @jld, and others. I wonder if they’re okay; really hope so anyway. I understand the impetus (heck, sometimes I even get envious of them haha!), but I still miss their presence here.

Anyway, hope @honcho comes back and brings the others I’ve mentioned with him.

Here’s a little apropos (but hopefully not accurate) Morphine to ease the pain… Gone for Good

Why in the world would you tell him to move to Africa?

That's why I can only laugh at that guys video because it's so bananas he's filming like that. "Bro... we in a tornado!" Haha. That's tshirt worthy. Hilarious!

Yikes! Really glad you’re both okay @TheDudeLebowski and @ConanHub and your fams as well. How terrifying! (And yes, Dude, “Bro we in a tornado!!” is hilarious and should be on a tshirt…I’d buy one cuz it would always be accurate for what is going on inside my head haha!)

I love storms! Their chaos, darkness, violence, and power really speak to me and give me a jolt of pure energy. I feel electric and alive when they’re happening. When I lived in the South I used to thrive on the southern storms and downpours, so exciting and just…romantic!

But tornadoes full-on scare the **** out of me and not just cuz of the potential for me to be crushed by a house carrying a little girl and her dog either lol.

When we lived in OK, I would worry every time there were severe thunderstorms. I only experienced one truly terrifying storm where everything had that eerie sense of foreboding you were talking about, Dude, and you could just feel in your bones that something wicked this way comes. The sky turned a weird color, the air felt heavy, everything got quiet, and then the hail started.

I was already home so I gathered up our doggies and got us in a central area of the house in a windowless bathroom under the stairs and just prayed my husband would make it home. He had been at work but he left and was hauling ass trying to get to us and beat the tornado. We were really fortunate cuz it missed where we were in south Tulsa but it hit some areas northwest of us pretty hard.

Being a rural Oklahoma boy, my husband was unfazed, but being Cali girls, the hounds and I were crapping our pantalones!! I miss a lot of things about that area of the country but definitely not the tornadoes, ice storms, and snow. I’m too soft for that **** haha!

Anyway, just thankful you guys are okay.

Of course he wasn't phased haha! Me, the idea of earthquakes is so frightening. I'm sure you skip down the street in one. I'll take my chances with the sky before I **** with mother earth like that

Or the sea for that matter. Want no part of hurricanes or tsunamis either. Or wildfires ... I'll stay in tornado alley and dodge softball size hail every once in a while. Much safer here!

If my devils are to leave me, I'm afraid my angels will take flight as well.
