    Sure! It's all I ever do!

    TNP wishes there an easier way to buy, say, a case of vagina tightening cream and have it sent unawares to somebodies place of business.

    Heheh. Yes, that could have some definite joke potential.

    TNP likes this Morgan Wallen tune, which is my favorite new country song:

    Yeah. Not really my cup of tea, exactly, but I liked the line about "my Red Wings and her flipflops in the sand." (Red Wing make boots, primarily, for use in the trades...an investment, of sorts, in that they're not cheap, nor stylish, but have been around forever and I've never heard anything bad about their safety-toe boots....don't know anybody on the job who uses them in the dispatch yard, but they're serious boots, for sure).

    TNP has recently seen something fantastic and amazing in the realm of construction/carpentry/etc., such as pool tables being covered with new felt. Or such.

    Yeah, my nephew is developing into a pretty talented amateur carpenter, and I most recently saw a nice, rustic multi-drawered table he made.

    TNP likes the smell of woodsmoke outside on a crisp moonless night.

    Well, sure. If I can identify the source of the burning in the dead of night, such as a fire or something. Otherwise, I'd be suspicious.

    TNP is planning to wear shorts pretty much through October this year. And socks, shoes, and shirt, &c.

    Weather permitting, yeah. I'm in shorts and a T-shirt whenever I'm at home pretty much all summer.

    TNP is in shorts right now.

    Yep. Just arrived yesterday some Dickies "work" shorts with the extra "utility" pocket (good size for a cell phone or other oddments). Wearing them now.

    TNP will make the call: Carhartt or Dickies (for utility work clothes). Decide who lives and who dies!

    Don't think I've ever heard of Carhartt, and I have had some Dickies stuff over the years, so the Big D it is.

    TNP has someone's business card within reach.

    Sure. A lawyer I know who agreed to represent me or consult with me if I continue to have problems with unruly neighbors or my HOA. Probably some others on my desk, but that's the only one I care about ATM.

    ["The Big D"????? Did you just make a dick joke, EH? Oh, OK. I used to tease this former gal at the pool table by saying she was all about the D. For defense. Which was true! In both interpretations.]

    TNP thinks forty-six can probably go into twenty-two a few times to mutual benefit. Maybe modular arithmetic....but you all know what I'm talking about. Real TNP? Should it!?

    If I understand you correctly - and I'm not certain that I do - then sure, why not?

    TNP can see big puffy clouds from where he or she is right now.

    At the time of TPP's post, I could.

    TNP thinks a systematic, long-form plan of revenge and vexation would be appropriate for an ex-girlfriend who refuses to return an OOP book and two LPs lent to her. No physical harm, but complicated, devastating results for the guilty party, to be sure.

    As long as it remains within the bounds of the law, yes.

    TNP can think of someone he or she personally knows who really ought to die a slow and painful death.

    Oh. Yeah. I don't even know where to begin. Pretty much everyone who pisses me off.

    TNP has a pretty extremely aggressive temper, and if so, is just fine with it, so long as it is constrained from desired actions.

    I have an occasional temper, yes, but I wouldn't say it's "pretty extremely aggressive," not really. I find my temper flares when someone lies to me, or doesn't do what he said he'd do, or is cruel or rude to others.

    TNP has had cold feet at some point today.

    Nope! I've been rocking these Dickies Dri-Tech socks lately...they're pretty good.

    TNP has at least one "anonymous" Google Voice phone number, and finds it handy in some circumstances where one wishes to not use one's actual phone number.

    No, I don't! Never had a particular need for that.

    TNP owns stock in at least five different companies.

    Indirectly, sure, through my 401K, and some AMZN stock that aren't fully vested yet, as a kind of half-assed "perk" of employment.

    TNP thinks this whole "friend zone" thing that some...people...seem to be obsessed with is both real (because, sure, it's a pretty universal way of categorizing people, done by both men and women alike), but also ridiculous, given that people can and do change their perceptions about their acquaintances according to evolving, if not chaotic, psychological attitudes over time.

    Yes, definitely. But then, interpersonal relations will always be at least somewhat fraught in a time when (ideally) people are completely free to make their own decisions as to who to hang out with, date, cohabit or marry.

    TNP has least five divorced friends.

    Yeah. Not all close friends, but certainly I know about five divorced people. Probably more. Mostly just one half of them, though!

    TNP knows some or most of the slang terms for dice combinations in the game craps/shooting dice.

    No, only a few: craps, snake eyes and boxcars.

    TNP needs a cold beer right about now.

    Nah, don't drink beer much anymore -- like cocktails better.

    TNP likes wine okay with a meal, but doesn't really think it's superior to other beverages.

    I disagree with that, somewhat. A big red wine has certain qualities that can't be simulated or replaced by other drinks...not superior, necessarily, but I wouldn't want to live in a world without some decent plonk served in a clean glass.

    TNP has recently been humbled by losing badly at a game (or sport!), like chess or pool, or whatever.

    No, it's been quite awhile. A friend at work beat me at chess many years ago in the only game we ever played; she then refused a rematch. Grrrrr.

    TNP has big plans for the weekend.

    Well, I sort of did have big plans to rehabilitate myself, do some personal hygiene, shave this beard (symbol of my new-found bachelorhood!) off, tidy up around chez moi. Nah. Played some pool today, hung out with an acquaintance at his pad, drank some malt liquors, and all that.

    TNP has noticed certain peculiarities of parking enforcement habits over the years, and is pretty smart about not being cited for parking violations.

    Hasn't really been an issue for me. I'm pretty careful about feeding the meters when I have to, and otherwise prefer to park in garages anyway.

    TNP parked in a concrete parking structure at least once over the weekend.

    No, not interested in the least.

    No. I mean, I'd take it temporarily and cherish it for as long as allowed, but my 2-bdrm place is extremely cluttered with....stuff.

    TNP has strong opinions about the graphical "strike zone" imposed on televised baseball matches (the one that shows the strike zone and the mph of each pitch). And will share those opinions. Here.

    Eh, I don't mind it, but I wouldn't be terribly upset if they did away with it, either.

    TNP will be going in person to a MLB game in the next month.

    Hope so. With the kid moved out and working, my baseball world is changing.

    Only a little on TV. Never entire match or game.

    TNP could, in five minutes or less, explain the rules of cricket to someone who knew nothing about the game, and actually have them understand it.

    Yes. First in a long time. No alcohol, ten hours of sleep, and some good REM sleep with a few short, uninteresting dreams.

    TNP finds it difficult to depart from certain routines, like, for example, stopping in for a beer at the regular place after work. Or whatever.

    Yes, I tend to be a creature of habit, although when I do something different I enjoy the newness of the experience and/or the break from routine.

    TNP has been to a graduation ceremony in the past month.

    No. I haven't found those ceremonies to welcome those who are not only unaffiliated with any relevant group, but also openly consuming alcohol while peering around using binoculars.

    TNP knew that you can take an old smartphone, unattached to any mobile carrier, hook it up to your home WiFi, and make all the anonymous calls and texts you want using Google Voice. Not a "phone," but a superphone!

    In only the vaguest sense. Mostly I find it baffling.

    (I know one current CIA satellite photoanalyst, and two former NSA Russian translators).

    TNP owns at least two kinds of cryptocurrency.

    I don't own one and probably never will. To me they're just a well publicized Ponzi scheme.

    True! Accumulated over the years when I get an odd or interesting coin as part of my change, and some I've been given as gifts. I particularly like JFK half-dollars, and the various recent Lincoln pennies.

    TNP has been to Abraham Lincoln's birthplace in LaRue County, Kentucky.
