Twenty Six

I turned 26 years old on August 28. In honor of this age, I am going to name a favorite thing of mine for every letter of the alphabet.

Apricots a delicious fruit, I’d eat them every day
Bananas will make me smile, the yellow peel is bae
Classic cars are always a great sight to see
Dogs are way better than cats, much more loyal to me
Eminem is one of the greatest rappers in all history
Football is the greatest sport, wife is in misery
Girl will you run away and marry me?
Hot summer days, kicking up to 90 degrees
Icecream slowly licked, melting in my hands
Jello vodka shots, only two I can really stand
Kisses from a loved one, great for my vibes
Leaving for a new city, so glad to be alive
Michigan, my state born and raised
New hat, new shoes, leave them quite amazed
Online video, can’t get enough
Peanut butter an addiction, licking my fingers of the stuff
Queen, one of my all time classic bands
Running in the rain, no umbrella in hand
Salty rimmed margaritas, quench my thirst
Toffee flavored coffee, hot and first
Underwater pictures, a new world to see
Volcanos, how I love the lava heat
White tender chicken, juicy and irresistible
Xmas still my favorite holiday, better with people
YouNow, my favorite livestreaming app
Z is where I’m at right now, think I’ll take a nap

Share Your World – 2015 Week #28

What is your favorite comfort snack food?

Got to be peanut butter. Just spooning or kniving it out of the jar and eating it like candy lowers my stress and makes me feel comfortable. But of course I love making peanut butter sandwiches (even if many people hate them). I love the thick crunchy peanut butter more than the smooth variety.

If you had to spend one weekend alone in a single store but could remove nothing, which store would you pick? (except food or beverage)

Great question. The first one I thought of was Walmart and of course the movie often dubbed “The Walmart Baby” where a woman has a baby while accidentally locked in the store overnight. It’s actually one of my favorite stores, where I can find almost anything I want for low prices. I would love to sleep on the display furniture (big comfortable fluffy beds) and play in the electronic section watching shows and playing video games on the big HD screen TVs. Warm me up some chicken tenders in the microwave, don a pair of Beats headphones and try out one of the new iPads. Or how about I just hit the deli and eat whatever delicious stuff they have in storage? Take an exhilarating ride around the store on an Amigo, recording myself. Go behind the dairy section to where they load the milk and eggs on the shelves. What a Weekend at Walmart it would be.

What was the largest city you have been to?  What is the one thing you remember most?

Chicago, obviously. Now I would not remember this because I was still in my mother’s womb, but I was at a baseball game at Wrigley Field in 1990 or 1991, the family and my pregnant mother sitting somewhere in the top tier of seats (she had to climb all the way up there). Cubs vs. the Mets. Cubs won, I believe my mom said. I would not get to see Chicago with my own eyes and awareness until 2013 when we were just traveling through there to get to Kansas to visit the college my sister Emily thought about going to, Kansas University, but decided not to. I remember the part of Chicago we were in looking kind of cruddy and rundown – it was the South side where the Sox play. My sister Liz who was driving the van was urged to drive a little faster through the shady area, because everyone except sensible me was afraid we were going to be mugged or shot! Not the glamorous part of Chicago like I said. When we all walked into a Walgreen’s at night at the same time, the clerk behind the counter looked at us suspiciously.

Finish this sentence:  It has recently come to my attention that ….

… I just can’t get a job. Not in this city, for that matter. I don’t know how many times I’ve been rejected and it seems as if I’ve going to have to get creative and start really looking for things I’m good at or love (like photography or design), return to college, or move away to a city that hires you as soon as you walk in and turn in an application.

Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?

I’m basically grateful for continuing to stick through with writing my blog and continuing to improve and strengthen relationships with other bloggers out there. I also love that the weather is nice, except for the rain showers we’ve been getting. The MLB All-Star game has already come and gone this week, something I like but don’t necessarily look forward to every year except getting to see and know the players from either side. I just finished reading my copy of Roots by Alex Haley, and am looking forward to watching the rest of the miniseries online (I’ve already seen the first episode). I’m also thinking about applying to attend the Culinary Institute of Michigan next year through Baker College.

The Macbofisbil Cuisine

I’ve been waiting for the day to use my alter ego in a creative way…

If any restaurant is going to name something after me, they’d better have a good reason to. What are my contributions to this unnamed eating establishment? I must have donated some money or did something incredible, such as eating all of their crackers up in one setting or tackling their previously impossible to eat Sasquatch Burger, since other than my laid back lifestyle, there really isn’t that much unique or interesting about me to have my mark set on something.

But let’s be optimistic here – if the Macbofisbil cuisine was suddenly put on the menu at Mystery restaurant, I would prefer my very own custom made burger to be the centerpiece. The bun would probably be light and fluffy and mostly air, describing my enjoyment of silence and the solitude, ideal ways to for me to write, practice photography, listen to music, or read books. Many layers on this burger, since I am no one trick pony. Two all steak patties, Colby jack, Swiss cheese, mushrooms, tomato, onion, pickles, special sauce, banana peppers, lettuce, on a toasted rye bun. You know the Big Mac? Well try the Macbofisburger, named after my online penname. It’s not just for blogging anymore. You and everyone else who pops into Bob’s Steakhouse will absolutely enjoy this burger, since it is made with the same love and care that I have, for most of the time, applied to running this blog – and some magic as well. Thick cut steak fries come on the side.

But that’s not all – since peanut butter is one of my favorite foods they would name their little in house spread packets after me. Macbofisbil peanut butter or something like that. Combine that with my ultimate favorite food, icecream, and you get the all new Macbofisbil specialty icecream on the dessert menu. I’m envisioning it as a sundae. With Macbofisbil peanut butter on the bottom and a juicy red strawberry on the top. That’s right. It’s not the cherry. Buck the system, buck tradition.  You can expect blueberry syrup running down over three scoops of yellow icecream since those colors describe my love for the Michigan Wolverines. I know this is not a common color of icecream but a scoop of grey would symbolize the grey areas in my mind, areas of the unexplainable, undefined, characteristics of my personality that aren’t really that clear to me. There would also be a scoop of mint chocolate chip, my favorite, and a topping of pecans (which are optional if you’re allergic). The Macbofisbil Sundae. Would anyone order this or the burger? I would assume so, since food is food, no matter what the label says. More menu items would come after these food successes. And then my very own Macbofisbil restaurant. Boy, it’s fun to dream.

And what a great way to extend my “brand” by having food bearing my invented name? They wouldn’t even have to know what it means.


In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “You, the Sandwich.”

If a restaurant were to name something after you, what would it be? Describe it. (Bonus points if you give us a recipe!)
