    What's proper etiquette if your misdelivered package is on a neighbor's porch? Do you just go up there, look through their packages and if it's there grab it, or do you wait for them to see what packages have arrived?

    This has happened in our neighborhood a few times. We knock on the neighbor's door, and tell them in a very friendly manner that we were just picking up a package that was misdelivered, and wanted to let them know so they don't think we're pilfering their mail. Then show them said package, and let them read the label.

    And now I'm blackballed. Blocked by my friend on her page and honestly I'm thinking this is not a great loss.
    All I said was "can't you be happy with what nature gave you?" in response to her asking should she go for her fake boobs?

    Not quite the same thing, but funny. One time I was walking into the office from the hangar and there was a group of Coasties and engineers standing around talking. One guy was saying, " my sister-in-law is getting breast reduction surgery. Why would any woman want smaller boobs?!" I stopped in my tracks and turned around. I was only going to say that maybe she wanted an end to backaches, but boy, those guys scattered like they were scared to death of me. As I've said before, I am barely 5 ft tall.
    I had a friend whose husband used to tease her about her itty bitty titties. She had implants and felt so much more confident that her husband was worried she might leave him. Maybe your friend just needs some kind of confidence booster. I color my hair, some people augment their bodies.

    I guess it is a confidence booster that's for sure just I think I really put my foot in my mouth here but I am not really one to filter my words. If I think something I will say it.

    I eat hash browns every morning. I can't help it. I love them.

    How does that make you a rule breaker?

    Because normally I can't stand hash browns.

    I only ate them because I didn't want them to go to waste. I didn't order them, I don't know why the waitress brought them...and I didn't' feel like being a "male Karen" by making her take them back.

    I'm thinking of trying to start waking up at 5AM until such time as it is possible to stay out late with friends again.

    The major benefit of this is getting in bike rides on work days before traffic picks up, or runs in the summer before it gets hot. But also, it makes it so I can do productive hobbies before work instead of after and after work if I'm tired I can just relax and play video games, and eat whatever I want for dinner without dinner needing to be a prep meal for a workout.

    Should have occurred to be sooner that when the option of going out with friends isn't available, non-daylight hours have much less utility.

    Not too bad means, well not bad tasting, compared to milo bought this year I think it's actually better than milo, and yeah that's not saying much I know.
