Everyone knows that when you invoke the middle name, along with the first, someone is in trouble! One of my favorite Megan memories uses this point. She is about seven years old and we are at the pawn shop looking for movies. From another part of the store you hear, "Megan Nicole!" Megan looks up at the cashier and says, "My dad has a trouble name too."

I think early onset of Alzheimer's has begun... how can i go to three bookstores in one afternoon and buy the same book twice???

You know how cats like to bring the dead body of usually a headless mouse to show off so proudly at your feet??? After seeing the countless dead deer carcass pics on Facebook over the last few days I can only assume humans have picked up on this activity...

...and so it begins. The uncomfortable stare down between me and the Salvation Army bell ringer.

My vet said that the steroids might make my cat ravenous. By the size of the nuggets in the litter box I would say the steroids turned my cat into a dog.

Tuesday, November 4, 2014 at 6:06pm
I found half of a steroid pill on the blanket Buddy has been sleeping on. Looks like he did the old pill under the tongue trick on me. Well played Buddy...

Saturday, November 1, 2014 at 8:16pm
Buddy Update: He may be a three legged cat from here on out. The vet(s) thought he wasn't getting better but worse and that we should start thinking about putting him down. I said he has a lot of life in him as he purrs, playfully bites, limps to the litter box and goes potty now on his own. Plus you could see in his eyes that he just didn't want to check out yet. He isn't falling over as much but still does quite frequently and looks VERY frustrated at times. Tonight he got up on the couch by himself?!?!? Must be the Prednisolone... in other news - Buddy has been denied the Cat Hall of Fame as he tested positive for steroids.

We don�t get tips too often. We are usually offered something to drink or eat every now and then, and occasionally we get an email from a satisfied customer. We finished a small two day project this week that we got all of the above, and I also got a high five and a Polo Sweatshirt that belonged to the home owner�s dad. I have three things from my dad and wouldn�t part with any of them. This is the BEST tip ever! - (I�m wearing it tonight)

I am with my good friend Marlene at Crabtree's north of Marine on St. Croix checking out some of the cool stuff they had there. I picked out this cool looking bike clock to buy and she notices another one and it was leaning against the wall. She asks if it stands by itself and I put the kick stand down and say, "Yep." It's leaning kinda to the back with the kickstand all the way down (mind you we are tucked away in the corner of the store), when Marlene asks, "Can you get it more erect?"

So i am at work and the guy i am working with has to drop a deuce and heads out to the woods with a shovel. The home owner comes outside and you can guess where this story is heading. Her dog follows her out and bolts for the woods. Next thing i hear is, ''SHOO!'' The dog came back with... lets just call it a treat. End of story.

I watched a lot of Robin Williams clips last night. I have bouts of depression. I think we all do at one point or another and some deal with it better than others. Robin Williams was a true gem in this world and will be missed greatly! Here is my challenge to you. Create a poem using the words in a title to one of his many movies. Here is mine:
Dead Poets Society
If we could have one more day
To wake the DEAD
Just one more chance
To hear what�s said

In a POETS world
Words are the wick
Some burn for eternity
Others flame out quick

Oh captain my captain
Your words I recite
Just one more day
To help you fight

A SOCIETY mourns
Your light now dims
Words never spoke
Of the pain within

So this really super cool douche, I mean dude, is behind me on his crotch rocket doing a wheelie at about 65 mph. As his front wheel returns to the ground the police lights light up behind him and the officer escorts Evil to the side of the road to what I can only imagine is followed with a congratulatory high five on his awesome wheelie. Start seeing police cars.

Leaving the party last night at 2am and a kid shouts out, "Who's leaving?" I say, "The other Greg." He looks at me with squinty eyes. "OH... You're the brown skinned man."

Speaking of caulk... Here is another interesting observation from the single perspective. This should give you insight to not only what I am up against, but the decline in the male gender in today's online world. A LOT, or should I say ALL single women that I either have as friends, or have gone on dates with, express how they are inundated with penis pictures or equally horrible messages from online dating experiences. I have been off and on these sites the last 10 years and have yet to receive one picture of a vagina with the accompanying phrase, "and I know how to use it!"

Another disturbing trend I noticed yesterday. Not only at 48 can I still get the occasional zit that I thought wouldn't happen again once my youth left me... I also get the perks of having to shave my earlobes.

Wednesday, April 9, 2014 at 8:52am
About 1 in 20 pronounces my last name correctly?!?! It sounds just like it's spelled. This morning calling customer service I get Gregory Simstem. I tell the lady, "close enough" and when asked to verify my name and address I sound out my last name just like it sounds followed by my address. The end of the call... "Thanks again Mr. Simstem and have a great day." Customer service reps?!?!

Saturday, April 5, 2014 at 9:31pm
Stopped at Holiday for another cup of coffee this afternoon and you know how they always try to up sell you with, "Would you like to buy a lottery ticket or car wash with the coffee today?" Today the guy was pretty funny as he quips, "Anything else today? Car wash? Lint roller?" CATS!?!?!

I am cleaning the common areas in our buildings and am almost finished with just two laundry rooms left to clean. In one laundry room a guy is doing his laundry. With no regard to "pubic" sanitary codes. He deposits these little curly bastards all over the machines! I packed a few in a baggy to bring down to the local PD for DNA testing. He's probably a serial killer too...

I've found myself over the last few nights in a Forensic Files marathon again. I've noticed that there seems to be a specific audience that must be targeted by the advertisements shown each night. Let�s just say that Forensic Files is not for everyone, check with your doctor and see if Forensic Files is right for you. Some people who have watched Forensic Files have noticed weight gain, dementia, and in some cases... even death.

Maybe this only applies to Samsung Galaxy SIII users. When you call an account you may have and they say press 1, 2, 3, etc. to continue, your screen goes away EVERY time you try to hit the number. If you own this phone you should know what I am talking about?!?!?! It's become a game of "Whack a Mole" - I don't win too often...

I can't remember a winter like this in 48 years. Someone said this to me this morning... "I think that the beauty of winter is a reasonable trade off for the cold. That said: This is an especially beautiful winter."

While waiting for the ground to thaw, I spent the last hour + looking at past Vikings NFL drafts. Teddy Brown and Dave Huffman were drafted before Joe Montana in 1979. Michael Boireau and six others were drafted ahead of Tom Brady in 2000. I think with my extensive landscaping and property management background I would be a good fit for the Vikings GM position. Sending my resume right... Now.

Friday, February 21, 2014 at 7:04am
Tell your boss I said it was OK to be a few hours late today. If they ask who Greg Smedstad is. Tell them I am a friend on Facebook!

Not a fan of Woody Allen. Never have been. He gets a lifetime achievement award? The back story on this man should have him in prison. His son's tweet on fathers day - "Happy father�s day � or as they call it in my family, happy brother-in-law�s day." OUCH!

I think one of the perks to being a wallflower is having a tunnel song. I want to find my tunnel song...

Saturday, January 11, 2014 at 10:19pm
It's not something you plan. It just happens. You try to distance yourself but to no avail. You walk away but find yourself coming back. I didn't think it could happen to me but it has, and it has happened on more than one occasion in the past. Tonight; I find myself... in a Forensic Files marathon.

I'm going to wade in... I am happy that ZZ Top was fortunate enough to have a good run on cable creating a dynasty of ducks after their decades of success playing rock. Like ALL reality TV, I don't care if their camo makes their butt look big or if the Kardashians went on a shopping spree for purses. I don't want to see two families swap wives or what's washed ashore in New Jersey. Live in the real world instead of watching it. I don't care for, or spend my time on ANY of it! If Duck Dynasty got cancelled tomorrow I say see ya! One more hour of your day to spend with those you love the most. I would rather read about how Donovan's greatest joy this Christmas season so far was seeing a tag on a present that said To Dad From Henry (he's 4 so it's cute as heck in his own penmanship). I like to know that Heather, Joe, and Lisa are cancer free or seeing pictures of Liza and Chase in the snow. Cohen and Bennett being cuter than anything except for my own daughter who has unfortunately blocked me. Still LOVE her more than anything in the world even if she is a little lost right now and doesn't want to hear my opinion. And no Kerry... you can NOT have Curt and Lisa's dog! I like seeing what kind of mischief that silly elf is getting into over at the Cragle household. Seeing Mike and Michelle happy they found each other and the adventures they share... someday I hope I will be as lucky! Amber is having a baby - I remember when she was just a baby! Make your own reality instead of watching someone else's on TV. Their opinions, views on life, or what they had for dinner mean NOTHING to me. My family and friends do and I wish you all a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year (since I am too lazy and not sending cards or Christmas letters out for another year consider this my Hallmark moment with you).

First Impressions: I am out shoveling my sidewalks this morning after a good cup of coffee and piece of cake for breakfast. Nothing out of the ordinary, and only a light dusting of about an inch covering the pavement. With winter there are always hazards though, like slippery ice to fall on, with the quick look afterwards to make sure no one saw your embarrassment. Frost bite, car starting problems, furnace goes out, and a whole host of other issues occur that only winter can bring. I had one of those occurrences this morning...

I am about 3/4 of the way done with my shoveling. My fingers are starting to feel a little bit of the numbness that the -1 degree temperature that old man winter was dishing out. Relatively warm otherwise and a slight sweat from the workout was even starting to form along my hairline. Up ahead on the un-shoveled walk was a beautiful husky making his or her way down the snow covered path, with what actually appeared to be a smile upon its face. The husky was also gently pulling this gorgeous woman who was bundled up behind holding onto the leash. I'm going to play it all cool like Fonzi, when she gets right up on me, and with an incredible smile she says, "Hi" Of course in my mind it was no any ordinary hi, but a hi that says "he's kinda cute, we should go out for coffee" kinda hi. It's at that precise moment that I blew a bubble. Her eyes quickly became fixated around my nose, and I was no longer Fonzi cool... but Potsie Weber cold.

Monday, December 9, 2013 at 7:22am
For breakfast this morning I had cake... and I ate it too.

Didn't get me much sleep last night. Dad gum smoke detector chirpin' like a song bird all night long. Don't care much for the tune he be playin'. Time to go knock him off his perch and change his noise maker...

I went out into the balmy Minnesota winter to take out the recyclables with just a t-shirt (pants, socks, shoes were optional). Came back in and cut some glass...

Thursday, December 5, 2013 at 12:11pm
Temp drops to single digits overnight. 7:30am shoveled for the 7th time in three days. 7:45am finished back walks as all 20 digits froze like Popsicles. 7:47am put fingers under warm water to thaw. 7:48am yell curse word. 10:15-11:30am finished sidewalks with new boots and mittens. No curse word uttered.

As a father with a daughter, my very near future purchases include: Gun for hunting, baseball bat 'cause they're cool, large butcher knife to cut things, wood chipper for small branches not human limbs, chainsaw - see wood chipper, shovel to bury things, small parcel of land (possibly a cornfield) to bury things using shovel. Maybe every season of Dexter... and I better call Saul.

Tuesday, November 19, 2013 at 6:50pm
Hibernation has begun. Googi Bear (my nickname given to me by my dad when I was a wee wittle boy) has come indoors for the long winter ahead. For what it's worth... I saw my shadow today.

One of the greatest marketing plans ever devised: You run out of ink in your printer. You get in your car and head to the local store and pick up some new ink for around two Jackson's and a Hamilton. Return home to install new ink and without asking it runs a test page and uses about 1/2 the ink you just bought... GENIUS!

For fun this morning I thought I would "air quote" while out doing some errands. I'm at Tire's Plus and say - I am here to get my "brakes" fixed. As his eyebrows raised upon his forehead with a puzzled look on his face he says - So you want to get your brakes fixed? I'm like "yes" Upon returning to Tire's Plus, my Mini was outside so I figured they were done. I go into the store and the same guy is at the counter. He almost looks scared as I approach him. I ask if my Mini is "done" He scrunches his eyebrows this time and says Yep. So I say - I would like to "pay" my bill... I highly recommend trying this! I think later I will answer every question with a completely unrelated answer...

Wednesday, November 13, 2013 at 6:58pm
In Soho's 1990 song Hippychick, I have always sung one line as, "And I won't deal with true blue debble dorf corrections." I just looked up the lyrics and apparently that is NOT correct. It says they are: And I won't deal with true blue devils of correction?!?!? - I'm thinking debble dorf makes WAY more sense!

A truly horrifying Halloween tonight. Sit back kids and let me tell you a tale... It started around 11:00 am with a text that a new resident would be moving in tomorrow on the first. It was a remodel and the text said the apartment would be ready to clean tonight. A little more notice would have been nice I thought. I replied with a simple "O.K." My regular job kept me away until 5:30 when I got home. A quick peek into the unit I was to clean was in order; queue scary Halloween theme song. THE HUMANITY! The remodel wasn't even close to completion!?!?! Mother F'ing Jones I thought to myself! I sent a quick text saying it wasn't even close to ready. A reply was sent back saying to do the best I can. As I surveyed the project I headed toward the bathroom; queue scary Psycho music! Lets rewind just a bit. These residents that had lived here had been in this apartment for close to 10 years. They were owners of a cleaning company. Flashbacks filled my mind of the bumper sticker on the back of their work truck that read, "A New Level of Clean" Remind me to NEVER... reach that level!

Thursday, October 31, 2013 at 10:11pm
I usually don't like to swear much. You may hear a Mother Pus Bucket now and again. After watching Horrible Bosses, and when I do swear, I say - "Mother F---ing Jones!" Tonight I'm Jonesing...

Tomorrow, I will attempt to have 60% of all words out of my mouth be said in Christian Bale Batman voice every time...

Tomorrow (or today as it were), I will respond to every thing uttered with... "that's what she said"

Friday, October 18, 2013 at 4:06pm
The last time I checked, we don't have a whole lot of status updates that feature the word indubitably. I'd be doing myself a disservice, and every friend that I have, if I didn�t perform the HELL out of this word!

My submission to Urban Dictionary for "Beefwalk" was rejected. Here is my definition with example: Beefwalk: When cattle strut their stuff and show off the latest trends in cowhides at state and county fairs (fashion shows). Heidi, dressed in spotted black and white, showed off her udderly fabulous fashion sense at the Holstein beefwalk during the 2013 Minnesota State Fair.

Monday I return to man stuff like: things you can do with a class A license, lift heavy things (sometimes while passing wind when you need a little extra effort), being all boss and shit in the bobcat, making things with dirt, farmer blows, swatting mosquito's while doing your business. You know, man stuff. I will tell my landscape brothers of Sunday though...

Sunday, August 11, 2013 at 3:39pm
Day of firsts in Stillwater. Started with Brunch at the Waterstreet Inn. Followed by my first ever massage at Just For Me Spa (Raymond was not my masseuse and nothing moved). Did a little wine tasting at my first visit to the St. Croix Vineyards where I bought a little bling bling from a local artist. Then off to the new rooftop seating at Rafters for a quick beverage before my first pedicure and manicure at Turbo Nails... and it's still only 3:30 :) Quite the enjoyable day - Thanks Kelly!

I don't do fast food very often anymore and to my horror... the unthinkable happened today at McDonald's� I go through the drive through, get my order, and everything seems to be in place as I get a McDouble and a large fry. I like to eat my fries first when they are still piping hot from the fryer. As I finish licking the salt from my fingertips I dip my hand into the bag and reach around the McDouble, stir up the napkins a bit and go from corner to corner of the bag. My hand goes from side to side and then under the McDouble and through all the napkins one more time. My heart starts to race and the panic starts to set in. This can't be happening I thought to myself. I then remove the napkins and McDouble and physically look into the bag when the traffic has subsided. DENIED! No stray fry. Not One solitary stinkin' stray fry! Isn't there a law against such blatant disregard for what has always been this unwritten fast food etiquette? There is ALWAYS at least one fry to be dispersed into the bottom of the bag. There are no exceptions... except on this day :(

Ghosts, fairies, little men and trolls have been reported to haunt The Devil�s Punchbowl in Menomonee, Wisconsin. People who joke about the trolls while in the Punchbowl have returned to their vehicles to have them not start for unknown reasons. Bring a shiny stone or some skittles to appease the trolls. I didn't take any chances and appeased the trolls with some Skittles. Mainly purple ones...

Until recently, I thought all skittles tasted the same. Upon separating by color and tasting the flavors individually I have concluded I am not a fan on Facebook of what appears to be the purple colored one...

...so this kid at work continually uses this one word wrong EVERY time he uses it. He uses it on a daily basis. Do I tell him or let the comedy roll for the rest of the year. Today's word - "Do you think it would be OK to put a snickers bar on the commercial Holiday� credit card? Metaphorically speaking."

Tuesday, May 28, 2013 at 7:03pm
Spent the better part of 10 hours today swinging a 10 lb mall and busting up concrete. Off for a 4 mile run and then maybe crochet me a blanket later...

I am thinking the "Derek Zoolander Center for Kids Who Can't Read Good and Wanna Learn to Do Other Stuff Good Too" is being under utilized in America...

I need a mulligan. A Gilligan. A go again. A do over. A Vinny reset...

Looks like summer came a little prematurely. Old man winter has other ideas with another 6-9 inches. Dear Penthouse Forum...

Did I just read the forecast correctly??? Another 6-9" tonight. What The Flake!?!?

Saturday, April 20, 2013 at 7:54pm
Either it's chilly in here, or I have been inadvertently rubbing my nipples...

Tuesday, April 16, 2013 at 7:06pm
Longest run of the year at 9 miles. Had one stop at the half way point. It appears that homemade split pea soup is NOT a good choice for a pre run meal.

Some people in the Deep South believe Minnesota summers have lakes and rivers with ice year round and the chance of snow is possible 365 days a year... I'm starting to believe them.

As an adult you have a lot of decisions that impact the rest of your life. Some days I wish I could just go back in time and just play with my stinking Evil Knievel Stunt Cycle...

Saturday, March 16, 2013 at 5:44pm
...and a side note: I like to end every rep at the gym with 49... 50! Then I look around all tough like. Sometimes I like to add 50 lbs to the machine when I'm done so the next guy is intimidated. This one time... this dude is like 60 lbs... Dude!

While running on the treadmill tonight, I find myself becoming better... stronger... faster with each mile. The last 1/5 of a mile I am running at a 5:45 pace. (Insert Bionic Man sound effect)

Thinking about lacing up the Air Smeds� and getting my 12" vertical to the Y for a little hoops. Old white men CAN jump... just not as high.

I am WAY too hyper right now! Time to head to the gym and hang with my over 65 peeps. I think I saw Bette White on the incline bench yesterday... her hair was perfect.

So I hit my head Thursday afternoon. Not even that hard if I recall correctly. No bump. No bruise. Headache is getting worse though. May be concussed. Amnesia is one symptom. How would I know if I suffered the effects if I had Amnesia?

Wednesday, December 5, 2012 at 1:14pm
Wasn't happy with the Kris Kringle look so I am growing a reindeer instead. Pretty much the same as a goat but more Christmasy.

I'll admit it. I love romantic comedies... chick flicks. Watched Phenomenon again. If you've seen the movie my favorite part: George Malley: Hey, would you love me the rest of my life? Lace: No. I'm gonna love you for the rest of mine. ...I'm off for a manly 5 mile run now.

I did what many thought impossible. I dumped an entire wheelbarrow of dirt on my head. Added bonus... My giblets got spanked simultaneously.

Many of you look to me for common household tips. Here's another. Leaving milk in the bottom of a bowl for more than 3 days leaves a formidable scent... It stings the nostrils. It's quite pungent.

Driver pet peeve #2: You find yourself behind Slowey McSlowerson for 10 miles going 45 in a 60 and no chance to pass with heavy traffic. Here comes the passing lane which lasts about a 1/4 mile. McSlowerson speeds up to 70 and then right back down to 45 after the passing lane... Penis!

We had Jared who lost 245 lbs. on the Subway� diet. Now some gal from Virginia claims to have lost 68 lbs. on the Starbucks� diet. Many people have asked me how I lost 50 lbs... steady diet of Holiday� donuts! It's not for everyone but it works for me.

I might be losing my mind just a smidge... off for my second 4 1/2 mile run today?!?!?!? Tomorrow I might run to the end of town.

Cut my hair this past weekend... wasn�t sure if Megan said I should cut it like Avril Lavigne or Adam Levine?

I am most happy when Megan is with me. I will be heading out shortly to pick up my daughter. Ergo...

Outside at PD Pappy's tonight with the water literally lapping at my ankles on the patio. I think I saw a muskie belly up to the bar and order a drink...

Friday, June 22, 2012 at 4:46pm
Can't seem to get the image of the five or six turkeys I saw ripping the meat off a dead deer on the side of the road out of my head. As God as my witness... I thought turkeys were herbivores.

Wednesday, June 20, 2012 at 4:34pm
My cat obviously has no clue on the difference between "No Buddy" and "Nobody". Maybe he thinks I am saying "Know Buddy" I am pretty sure the inflection at the end of my sentence means NO Buddy! CATS?!?!?

Three ticks found so far. If I die in the near future have the coroner check for Lymes Disease.

The cats get me up at 4:30. Fill food dish. Replenish water with fresh water. A scratch behind the ear, under the chin, and a few purrs later... they are back to bed. Cats?!?!?

7/16 Price Books. I think I could turn this into something...

Woke up this morning to a 1/2 hour kitty massage from Annie. This was no ordinary massage and a first for Annie. When you have two paws kneading, vibrating, and pulsating your face and temple... it's nothing short of nirvana! Now, if I can get Buddy to make my coffee.

I LOVE following politics. So when the pill controversy reared its head this week, an unlikely counterpart shows up as well... "Why is Viagra covered by insurance then?" If you want to bring God into this equation then you have to believe that if he can't get it up... he was, "A prime candidate for natural deselection." Sorry Dude, God says your play time is up (or down as it were).

Those of you who are going to hit the stores soon or are already in line... remember the little mom and pop shops too, even if it's just a cup of coffee or breakfast between stops.

I believe Lee Harvey Oswald acted in his spare time. I believe there ought to be a Constitutional amendment outlawing Astro the Dog and the designated hitter.

I Spilled a bit of gas on myself today and went to the bank shortly after to deposit my check. Teller asks if I am a mechanic. I say no. She says you can tell where some people work by how they smell. I say, "Because I smell like gas?" followed by, "I'm a landscaper." She says, "Oh?" I say, "What you�re saying is that I would normally smell like dirt?" Dirt... I smell like dirt.

I'm not sure where I got this magic 8-ball but after I shook it vigorously it read, "Beer is in your near future." What does this mean?!?!?!

1913: Federal Income Tax is implemented. Wisconsin is 1st state to enact minimum wage. Charlie Chaplin began his film career. The Panama Canal opens. President Woodrow Wilson says US will never attack another country and Lorna Pederson was born. RIP grandma...

Odd things that creep into the mind for no reason... About 5 years ago I was working up in Robbinsdale when a young man came in looking for a job. He fills out an app. and under work history he lists Cub Foods as his last employer. Duties: He was a Night Stalker :)

This little old lady is moving to Stillwater from Arizona and she is squawking about the illegals and how they will kill, rape, and rob you blind - and steal your job and live off the state every chance they get... today her moving company arrives with Juan, Julio, and Jesus (pronounced hey-Zeus :) as her movers?!?!?!

18 months ago I quit smoking after 25 years. 4 months ago I hit my highest weight at 210 lbs. 4 months & 2500 miles on my bike & I have lost 34 lbs. I finally made it to 90 minutes to do 27 miles on my bike. Fast forward to today. At the 18 mile mark - blown tire. Non repairable! Like Forrest Gump I just ran�

A "Birther" was recently asked how President Barack Obama's birth was recorded in both of Honolulu's newspapers in August of 1961 and he replied, "He must have had some kinda… Hot Tub Time Machine"

Somedays, like today, you have 14,122 things to do. 14,121 should, have, or need to be done. I just want to do the one thing :-)

Always enter a room with poise and confidence. If you accidentally slip or stumble, stop immediately and start licking yourself rigorously - it distracts would-be hecklers.

Much like the Shaolin monk Caine... I too, will walk this Earth alone.

So...I am in my car, tunes are cranked (Tiffany - I Think We Are Alone Now). Seems we weren't. A guy comes walking down the sidewalk. I quickly turn the tunes even LOUDER...to (Marilyn Manson - Beautiful People), followed by the universal head nod, "Sup..."

Some of my favorite Minnesota slang: Gotoda - Used in a sentance: I need to gotoda store. Whateya - Used in a sentance: Whateya got in the bag?

Lotta or lotza - Used in a sentance: I have lotza candy. Nutter - Used in a sentance: Give me a nutter piece of candy.

It was just 129 years ago today that a 13 year old girl named Laura and her Pa, Mary, and Ma loaded up the wagon in Walnut Grove and headed to the big town of Sleepy Eye for some MAJOR deals for what is generally thought of as the first "Black Friday."

I think it's easy to sit there & say you'd like to have more money. That's what I like about it. It's easy. Sitting there, rocking back & forth, wanting that money

I find myself sometimes carrying two sacks of something when I walk around. That way, if anybody says, "Hey, can you give me a hand?" I can say, "Sorry, got these sacks."

I was at the mall & a guy came up to me & said, 'How's it going?' So I grabbed his arm & twisted it up behind his head & said 'Now who's asking the questions?'
