My Eight Year Old’s New Business Plan

Just went downstairs to see a sign, made by Simon. It says:

Simon’s Bar: Drinks, Uno, Tick-Tack-Toe (sp), Math Drills and Dreidel.

Yeah, that’ll make money. And no, I didn’t ask what they will be drinking.

    Sounds great to me! I could go for drinks and Uno. I wouldn’t mind learning about dreidels, either.

    During happy hour, the math drills are two for one, I assume?

    Now, that’s why I’m so bad at math! If I’d had math drills with beer I’d be so much better now! LOL

    Peace to All,

    If he’s serving milkshakes, I’m in. Milkshakes and Uno sound like my idea of fun.

    So we’re guessing Eric took a gamma ray burst to the right side some years ago?


    Actually, looks like a lot more fun than my graying process- I wound up dying my beard for years; my beard grayed first, and the gray came in all weird and lopsided- not interesting looking like Eric’s.

    I hope, and am sure, the Environmental Physics is fascinating. I had a bad experience with mine- we had a course of “Physics for Biology Majors” – and I dropped out after the first month; which did not please the prof. It was all physics; from the viewpoint of a physicist- zero actual communication or relevance I could see. The prof insisted “you need this course!” and I responded, “yes, I do! But I’m getting nothing here, and it’s not getting any better.” I still regret it. Partly I already had a lot of physics- but partly also there was just a total disconnect between me and the prof.

    Of course, I had bio profs where that was true, too!
