All The World’s A Canvas

All The World’s A Canvas - Kids

If you’re a parent of a young child, you’re going to have some of your possessions ruined with an unwanted drawing. Children that young are beginning to develop their fine motor skills and their artistic side, and are eager to use any available surface to compose their next masterpiece. Usually the damage is fixable, or the object is replaceable, but for one parent it meant being detained at a foreign airport until his embassy could sort it out.

The father, “Mr. Chen,” is Chinese and went on a business trip to South Korea with his four-year-old son. (First mistake right there.) When the father-son duo went to the airport to return home, Dad discovered his son had scribbled all over his passport–complete with a new makeover for Dad that included scraggly hair, a beard, giant lips, and eyes as black as a shark’s.

Unfortunately, airport security didn’t have a sense of humor about the situation. The two were detained, and the Chinese embassy tried to issue them a fresh passport.

We’re still waiting for the Chinese industry to turn this incident into a movie, perhaps in the vein of Tom Hanks’s classic The Terminal.

Introducing The “Dating Resume”

Introducing The “Dating Resume” - Friends

What’s the most extreme thing you’ve done to get a date? Unless you’ve created a professional resume detailing all the ways you’re a catch, like this Michigan State student did, you’ve got a ways to go.

(Yes, this is a competition. Looks like you’re losing.)

The story begins last week. With MSU’s school formal coming up, junior Ashley Harrington was concerned her roommate didn’t have a date. She went on Facebook and posted an open call for a date for her roommate. The post itself is a gem:

We all had a few friends in college who took their studies more seriously than their social life, and it sounds like Ashley was doing her roomie a solid.

Enter the hero of this story, 21-year-old junior Joey Adams. A friend initially saw the post and tagged Joey, and Joey eagerly responded to the call to action:

Before we delve into the resume, we have so many questions. From the time stamps it looks like he replied with his resume just minutes after the initial post. Did he have the resume already made, and was he just waiting for the right opportunity to use it? Or did he whip it together in such a short time? And where did he get the idea to do this in the first place???

OK, now let’s take a look at the larger version:

Some highlights:

-Points for being honest about who he is. He notes his love of puppies, his tendency to cry during Marley and Me, his “dad-like” behavior in public, and the time he spends Facetiming with his mom.

-He’s clear about what he wants: he’s not after a hookup (he doesn’t have Tinder), but a meaningful connection.

-He’s even got a bit of a sense of humor on him, making light of the fact his job title is “Lubricants Consultant.”

Unfortunately, the original roommate never responded to him. But the story has a happy ending. Fellow MSU student Simone Campbell saw the resume, and Tweeted it, and the story has gone viral. Young women began reaching out to Joey for dates:

 

All in all it looks like Joey’s got a great dating attitude
