    Agreed. Scrambled or fried especially, with some hot buttered toast with jam, please, and bacon or sausage, and some OJ... yum!

    TNP's mouth is now watering.

    Yeah, I guess, but not for any savory reasons.

    TNP would be extremely irritated if one's HOA, which disallows all dogs except service animals, refuses to enforce their mandate. And would not be above taking matters into his or her own hands.

    Extremely irritated, yes. Taking matters into my own hands, probably not (depending on exactly what you mean by that).

    TNP needs a new toothbrush.

    Not at the moment. I have a few serviceable heads for the Oral-B electric, and plenty of fresh regular ones.

    TNP has a favorite toothpaste, and is willing to pay a premium for it.

    No, not really. As long as the bristles are soft but not too soft, I'm happy.

    TNP flosses daily.

    Nope. Probably won't go back in a while: I'm afraid I'd be disappointed again at how much things have changed.

    TNP has ever used "transition" lenses on prescription eyeglasses or (inclusive/"wedge") thinks they're pretty neat.

    A bit too sweet, dense and sugar-laden for my tastes at that time of day (and that's saying something!), but I guess so.

    TNP definitely has a sweet tooth.

    About once a year or so. Probably about the time those little rats come knocking looking for their "treats." I'm pretty sure they're parents have warned them about my place (and there's a limit on children at my condo community), and the "Don't Knock Or Ring Ever" sign duck-taped to the door probably reinforces that.

    TNP has a solution to this minor irritation: so, this woman still has my Flexfit ballcap that fits my 7 melon, and while I want it back, I don't want to converse with her even via text. Yes, I bought another one, but it wasn't the same hat, and I don't feel like buying yet another stupid ballcap, which I liked very much. A simple sample solution would be a text saying "Don't reply, please, just leave my hat behind my bar, where you seem to be skulking around." Or has another solution. And will say it.

    Yeah, that would work, or maybe if you have a mutual friend, you could just ask her to leave it with that person?

    Nah, that sounds like crazy talk! Isn't it going to freeze and get all funky over the winter anyway?

    [Yeah, more or less: the bartenders all know me and her, and they do little favors like that all the time for regulars].

    TNP has recently made him or herself rather ill by eating way too much Halloween candy. Yeah. "Fun Size," like I'm so sure people aren't going to eat an entire bag in one sitting!

    No, not really. Maybe Butterfingers or Reesies Pieces or whatever they're called. Of course, the king of all candies is Finnish Salmiakki/Turkinpippuri (salted [the salt is ammonium chloride]) licorice hard candies. The best and strongest are made by the Finnish company Fazer, but one isn't supposed to eat too much ammonium chloride in one sitting for various health reasons. Children would not like them in their Halloween bags, pretty sure!

    TNP has recently been kicking all kinds of ass at a various game/sport, and will provide details if so.

    Well... I'm doing pretty well on my latest round of Tetris, I suppose. Up over 300 or so, I think. Love that game!

    TNP has played Tetris in the past month.

    No, I have not! Oh, no! You've rekindled the tetris beast! Oh, man, what a terrific game!

    TNP has ever played the arcade full-sized format of Tetris. OR (TNP can choose), TNP has ever experienced true "Tetris effect" on the brain (also applicable to chess and such).

    Never heard of that before!: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tetris_effect. Yes, I guess I have, a little now and then. I've also read that Tetris has been found to be helpful to some soldiers suffering from PTSD, oddly enough.

    TNP knows a U.S. Army veteran well.

    Yeah. Worked alongside more Army vets than I can count, as well as the other branches of the armed services, but as far as knowing well, I guess it was my first "real" band, the drummer was Army all the way. Not a lifer, and didn't see combat nor was in for very long, but that definitely was a formative experience for him: in his words, it was "his college." Great guy and a brilliant drummer as well, especially for being so young (early twenties), who understood dynamics of sound and balance. Not in touch with that whole crew anymore, but rock solid dude.

    TNP, if he or she discovered that a former "special" acquaintance was suddenly working behind the bar during the times and days one has been habitually coming in after work for years, would not dream of changing his or her routine because of any potential unpleasantness.

    Probably not. "To thyself be true." I'd rather be myself than try to keep up appearances and lie to someone I once cared about.

    I don't think so. My mom would puddle up a little now and then, when I was in my teens, but that just a manipulation technique.

    Not particularly. In the one hand, I don't care. On the other hand, he "got with" my gal Rachel Wesiz. Meh. Don't care. Eff that dude. I hope he dies.

    TNP has ever leaned on a car horn for over ten seconds in a parking lot to alert an incompetent who tried to back up in the midst of normal traffic flow of 5 mph. Well beyond, that is, the simple "toot toot" that was probably required, by an order of magnitude.

    Yes. I know it's manly and all to take a cold shower. But I ain't no damned Steve McQueen, or whatever. If "bracing" or "invigorating" cold water touches more than a small numerical value of the surface integral of my skin in toto, I'll probably be inclined to kick somebody's ass.

    TNP actually thinks Buffalo has a good shot at reaching the Superbowl this year, despite last week's unfortunate episode against fricking Jackonsville.

    No. I only bet on games where I control the outcome, like playing pool.

    TNP, if he or she is a gambler, is just fine with breaking even in the end. Or would be.

    No. Five bucks or so on a rack or a game of dice is about my limit: if one bets all the time, it can add up, so twenty a frame is going to end up more than I can afford when the day is done,

    TNP really enjoys "speaking" through a megaphone/bullhorn and has done so in recent memory.

    Yes. I call it an A=440 Hz tuning fork and it lives in a jacket pocket. Song comes on the jukebox, you want to know what key they're doing it in? Reference note and some common sense.

    TNP: Led Zeppelin or AC/DC...............most often heard at the local bar/whatever.

    Led Zeppelin, but not by a huge margin. Neither is really my favorite group.

    Yeah, kind of. Some chooch was watching the 49ers/Jacksonville game while I was trying to catch the Bills/Colts game on another TV (which was a pathetic game, but I'm a masochist so I watched right up until the final second............meh..........WTF BFLO? Maybe a wild card slot........not so good), and now I've got Frank's Red Hot smell in recent memory. Dude, who the hell watches the 49ers? Not as bad as being a Patriots "fan," but still, whatever. You know they're going to clean up, as they did. Packers lost by a small margin, but that was a good game. Seagulls also....meh.....as Ra Teasha at work said on our way out the door today, "don't even say it!"

    TNP thinks he or she would have done due diligence by calling the county sheriff's non-emergency number upon taking down a stop sign immediately, and waiting on hold for 0.5 hours, while waiting for a tow from AAA, and, if so, is like "Hey, come at me, bro! Gimme a citation, don't give a fuck! Knock on my door, chucklefuck! Dude, it already cost me plenty, so pile it on, don't care!"

    "Upon taking down a stop sign"? Like, by hitting it with my car? Yes, definitely.

    No, sorry to say. That does sound like good fun, but I haven't been reading anything much except music recording magazines, sheet music, and the Wall Street Journal.

    [Yes, "take down" as in run it the eff over at about 50 mph...hey, man, AAA wouldn't even take the call to tow me out of the mud until I made contact with the sheriff....but after being on hold for half an hour with the non-emergency county sheriff's number, I was like...I'm sure they'll make contact with me, probably a citation. Maybe nothing. Who knows. They have a record of my call, as does AAA, so given that there was an actual literal riot in the city that evening, I think they had their hands full. Whatevs: I tried my best, so, I don't know what else is reasonable to expect of me. I'm no scofflaw, but AFAIC, it's just ancient history at this point. I don't even know what the municipal revised statues say about my liability, but I do have collision insurance and all that, so...we'll see.]

    TNP is just plain getting too old for this shit!

    No, it's been a few years since I saw those for the first time.

    A little better than that, I suppose. I can play basketball, soccer and baseball with about average skill for my age, but I can swim like a fish.

    TNP would like to go swimming this week.

    No sir. See, the thing is, it's pretty damp outside already, and likely to remain so for the indefinite future, and I'm extremely used to being soaked in water head-to-toe, from sweat, rain, or both, five days a week. No thank you! That is quite enough for me.

    TNP knows somebody really well who super enjoys traveling by train as a mode of transportation, and can completely understand the appeal.

    Yes, my Uncle Frank has been a train buff from 'way back. He'd probably go on a train ride every week if he had the chance.
