Well come here, I'll take you out to their place. I'm not friendly enough with them to walk up and knock on the door of any of their homes, but the warehouse is open to the public. Willie and Jase live less than half a mile from me, as the crow flies.

Thank you.
It was neither, just funny and unexpected.

Wait, no, I remember we chatted about it some more... But I still don't remember what I said.
It was before that, when I was at your house I will probably never forget it and never repeat it...

Well, next time we go to NO, we'll have to stop in to see y'all!

Here is a random thought.

If you've read anything about introverted personalities then you also know they get overstimulated and start to withdraw in situations with a lot of commotion. That said, what if the soaring ADHD diagnoses are linked to introverted personality types?

In today's time with any type of information/game/news, basically anything only seconds away from your fingertips, an introvert can be constantly bombarded with excess stimuli and can't fully focus on anything with everything else going on around them. Leading them to seek the modern cure all "pills" which fixes the symptoms but not the problem.

I hope this makes sense, I just thought of it and had to write it down

Hahaha.......I always give a fake name, too, just to be funny. I've never been asked to give a name at a Burger King, though.

One time I was out with my three kids and we ordered at a place where they ask your name and you go sit down until your order is ready and your name is called. I gave my typical alias and we were sitting there. I forgot I used a fake name and they were calling "my" name for several minutes until my kids reminded me I had used my fake name. I felt so stupid. It appeared to everyone that I didn't even know my own name.

It's something that even a lot of fast food joints are doing now. Even though they don't bring you your food... Something to do with "not treating people like a number".

I've had people ask me, "Is Rooster your real name?"
Well... no. It's not. I've known several guys named Rocky. But no, my parent's didn't name me Rooster...

Oh, and Cinder reminded me last night of what I said about the 10MM 1911. I had been drinking, and she's already promised not to tell... I'm glad.

I used to scan the names on a waiting list when I got to a busy restaurant and look for a party of the same size as mine, then take that name. When they called that guy I would take his place and get seated with my party earlier. It works about 80% of the time if you play your cards right.

I wouldn't do that these days though, now that I am older and know about Karma.

If I ever get one, I'll let you shoot it if you tell me.

If you get one and you let him shoot it, I'm sure he'll tell you then.
