Could That Possibly Be The Same?

I expect most men, even my friends, would be a bit embarrassed by this.

Have you Facebook fans noticed their new feature, the post in which you, yes you, have reached some anniversary or milestone on Facebook?

An example: today Facebook notified me that it has been six years since I became friends with one of my nieces. Actually, it’s a best friend’s daughter, but I think of his kids as a nephew and four nieces.

Anyway, it has been six years.

Here’s the embarassing part: the post shows a photo of me, it happens to be my regular photo or profile photo or whatever the photo is called that shows up automatically now and then. I happened to notice that in that photo I am wearing the same shirt I’m wearing today.

It’s a good shirt, an L.L. Bean’s, and I’ll probably still be wearing it six years from now if I’m still breathing.

Besides, it still washes up pretty well. And nobody else of importance (read: wife) has said anything about it.

Does kinda make me think about the other stuff in my closet, though I’m pretty sure it’s all newer than my Facebook shirt.


Small Toilets….?

The other day a headline in our local newspaper intrigued me.  It promised a brief article about “small toilets.”  Had me wondering about a variety of weird things until I read the article and quickly realized the headline writer meant “smart toilets,” which had me wondering about a variety of other weird things.

Smart toilets?  I have just enough tech savvy to know that the “Internet of Things” is the next big thing, but smart toilets?  What, we’ll be able to flush from anywhere in the world with our, you know, smart phones?

“Honey, hand me the phone.  I think I forgot……”

“Here darling.  While you’re at it, please make sure the refrigerator doesn’t order another jar of that awful mustard.”

Good grief.
