I haven’t given you a taste of some good ol’ fashioned stream of consciousness in awhile so here we go. I often wonder how the hot sauce at various restaurants feel when it has been used by a customer. Do you think it feels full despite being constantly emptied or perhaps we take away its life-force when we make our foods a bit saucier? To be perfectly honest, if you put hummus on nearly anything, I would eat it.
The only exception to that rule would be something sweet, but I have seen dessert-hummus in the grocery store and this is absolutely disgusting. A comfortable couch is important to have in a living room, but a comfortable bed is an absolute necessity. Submarines have the ability to dive deep, but I’ve found that submarine captains tend to be pretty shallow and mindless.
Not sure what you just read, well here’s what you missed in the news yesterday.
Biden, Now We Can’t Do This…
It has now come to the media’s attention that Joe Biden, former vice president and potential presidential candidate, has been accused by a second woman of him touching her inappropriately. Earlier this week, Lucy Flores, a former lieutenant gubernatorial candidate, came out and said that Biden had kissed her forehead at a campaign event and it made her incredibly uncomfortable. On Monday, Amy Lappos told a Connecticut newspaper that Biden rubbed noses with her at a 2009 fundraiser. Lappos stated that it “wasn’t sexual” but her head was grabbed.
Naturally, Biden responded with his own statement:
“In my many years on the campaign trail and in public life, I have offered countless handshakes, hugs, expressions of affection, support and comfort. And not once — never — did I believe I acted inappropriately. If it is suggested I did so, I will listen respectfully. But it was never my attention.”

Anytime friends of mine get into Ubers or other ride-hailed vehicles, I always remind them to check the license plate on their smartphone app and compare it with the vehicle that has shown up. Unfortunately, a University of South Carolina student was taken advantage of and murdered over the weekend. The body of Samantha Josephson, 21, was found in a forest on Friday night when she didn’t come home after a night out.
“We want every college student in America to take a pledge that says they will never get into a ride share without first asking the driver, “What’s my name,’ to make sure that they are getting in the right vehicle. This is really a national problem. We thought we had a safe city here and a safe campus, but this might happen again this weekend if a student gets into one of those vehicles and hasn’t fully confirmed that it’s the right vehicle.”
