I was taking a continuing education class to remain employed with my school system.
This one was on The Internet and Media.
We learned about this new thing called "Twitter." And we were introduced to "Tweets" and "Tweeting."
I laughed, being a man, and said to the instructor, "This will never catch on. Can you see real men, as they leave the restaurant, turn back to the table of friends and say out loud, DON'T FORGET TO TWEET ME!"
Never going to catch on.
Yet here we are. Even one of the most macho Presidents we've ever had is up at night Tweeting.
This is my little sis from Big Brothers / Big Sisters. She hopes to one day be a baker/pastry chef. For her 17th birthday, I asked what she wanted to do? Amanda found a recipe for a cake she wanted to make that looked WAY more difficult than I thought we could accomplish. But this wonderful young lady met the challenge! This cake took 5 HOURS to make, with Italian buttercream, American buttercream, ganache, sprinkles, an Ariana Grande tie-in... and a 3-layer Funfetti cake! This is what Amanda wanted to do for her birthday — a challenge that she could meet. So proud of her! (Amanda and I have been “matched” for 4+ years.)
