You might not recognize it, but we see a lot of phone numbers while we’re driving through town. They’re so ubiquitous, that we don’t even register them anymore unless we’re specifically looking for them. But if you are looking for them, you might be able to end up making a friend, even if it’s the kind of relationship that lasts a mere four text messages.
Still, having the guts and temerity to reach out and connect with someone just because you’re suffering through the same kind of traffic is nice to see in this day and age.
Moms Know the Score
Who knows exactly what happened to make this kind of message necessary, but apparently it involved a lot of crying. Spicy crying. Did you know that eating spicy foods improves your mood? It's true!
You may be familiar with something called serotonin, which helps your body naturally reduce depression and stress. Well, eating spicy foods boosts your body's production of this substance. It's produced in response to the spicy heat, which the body interprets as pain. It gets pretty complicated after that, but if you're feeling down, try some jalapenos. And if you're drunk, text your mom, not an ex.
We Are All Scared Now
Don't mess with moms. They've been putting up with your monkey business for far too long, and clever stuff like this, funny as it is, might not fly. Mom only has so many hours in the day trying to keep you alive, well-fed, and happy, so don't go antagonizing her.
And it looks like this conversation just got in the way of her shopping at Target. You went and disturbed Mom at her happy place with something you knew would make her pull a face, so don't be surprised if you get grounded when you're home.
It's an Easy Mistake to Make
You know, they do look a lot alike, don't they? And they must be pretty happy to have both been famous, though the Rock doesn't get much press nowadays. His twin Dwayne is grabbing all of the headlines with starring appearances in one movie after another, though.
If you want to be able to tell the difference, The Rock has a short 'do, while Dwayne Johnson is clean-shaven on top. That's the only difference. Funny how you've never seen them in the same place at the same time, though. Well, The Rock must be enjoying his time out of the spotlight.
There's Just Too Many Daves
Don't get your Daves mixed up, people. It can lead to some pretty embarrassing interactions with someone you haven't spoken to for several years. You could also give people more than just a first name when you add them as a contact on your phone, that's another option. Or at least give them an epithet, such as “Dave (driving instructor).”
That would help you to avoid these issues a lot. Then again, there are so many Daves out there it's always going to be hard to keep them all straight. At least they aren't as bad as Joshes. A dime a dozen, those Joshes.
