I recently read an article where it’s illegal to go trick or treating on Halloween where kids older than 12 potentially face fines, misdemeanors or amazingly, even jail time for trick or treating! How old is too old to go trick or treating? Have you ever refused to give candy to someone you felt was too old or didn’t dress up?
The other day I found myself at Plaza Park in Lafayette (confirming that A Runner’s Mind really did close) when I realized it was dinner time and I was responsible for bringing dinner home. At that moment I peered into Sideboard wondering if they offered any interesting takeout options. Sure enough there was a sign for a bucket of fried chicken takeout. Tired of the usual go-to options like pizza etc, I decided to go for it and we quite enjoyed it at home.
In the above photo you can see the inventor of the airplane, Orville Wright. I wouldn’t mind sitting down for dinner with him but I think I’d most like to have dinner with Teddy Roosevelt or Bill Gates. Who would you most like to have dinner with?
Yesterday we learned that the vegetarian restaurant The Lettuce Inn will be relocating within downtown Concord which got me thinking about my own meager vegetable intake. When I’m at a restaurant I try to convince myself to order a vegetarian dish. But then I see any number of meat dishes listed and I get an unbearable urge to order that instead, even if I know it will be less healthy. How can I convince myself to eat more veggies? Are you a vegetarian? If so, what made you become one? Health, environmental or something else?
Although Vitamin Shoppe closed in downtown Walnut Creek this spring, the multi billion dollar vitamin and nutritional supplement market is still booming. Do you take any vitamins/nutritional supplements or do you believe they have no effect? I take vitamin D and L. reuteri probiotics. I feel good but maybe it’s just a placebo effect?
Traffic in the Bay Area can get pretty insane during rush hour. I feel lucky these days that I don’t have to commute as I work from home but throughout the years I commuted around the Bay Area both by car and BART. How long is your commute? Do you car pool or take BART? Would you consider moving to be closer to work?
As I browse cute pet photos on reddit sometimes I feel like I should get a pet dog or cat but the time and financial commitment is not insignificant. I know my kids would love one but for now a fish will have to do. Which animal do you think makes the best pet?
