Ballsy

Lots of people make spectacles of themselves — the Egg included — but this guy is doing it for all the right reasons:

So if you see him — and his very large ball — in your travels, connect!

(And make a donation if you can.)

The letter Z

Tonight was sponsored by the letter Z…

…as in I fell asleep on the couch soon after I ate dinner, and woke up around 11.

(Perhaps it was sponsored by many Zzzzzzzzz’s.)

When I did wake up, my first thought was, “Man, I”m ready for bed.”

I must be catching up on sleep I lost back in college or something.

That’s a thing, right?

This just in…

Wow. Crack me up.

Oops

I forgot yesterday.

I forgot to write a post.

Since I launched The Egg almost five years ago, I haven’t missed a day.

Until yesterday.

I have great excuses: A packed schedule. Business travel. Lack of sleep. Or do I have…a brain cloud?

It almost got Tom Hanks in the movie classic Joe vs the Volcano.

Clearly I need a really great steamer trunk.

(This only makes sense if you’ve seen the film. Don’t want you think the cloud is upon you…or is it???)

Where have all the BBQ corn chips gone?

It’s not a silly question — it’s a timely one.

national corn chip day

Today is a national holiday devoted to this salty, crunchy, life-altering, lunch-completing, yummy snack.

Sure, I’ve eaten a few.

Personally, I prefer the BBQ variety.  But for some reason — I’m thinking all those healthier choices crowding the snack aisle — BBQ corn chips are harder and harder to find in my neighborhood bodega and grocery store.

So today’s post is my personal plea to Frito Lay, a company I have helped keep in business over the years:

“I want more.”

What makes it all better

My cold won’t go away.

It’s been two weeks.  I don’t mean to be rude, but…

LEAVE already.

I felt poopy all day but had to work hard. With congestion. And coughing.

This sounds like a job for…

Thanks, Ditch Plains.

Cold whisperer

Rory and I were walking around the neighborhood yesterday,  seeing if  anything had changed while we were in Montauk,  when I sneezed three times.

Per usual.

A friend was walking by and witnessed the sneeze.

“Are you sick?”

“No, I just sneezed.  I always sneeze three times.”

“Sounded like a sick sneeze to me.”

“Oh, I doubt it.”

Well, this morning my throat is scratchy and tight. My head is achey.

That man has mad skillz.
