Legalize It - Behind The Awkwardness

“I recently moved to Colorado, where my grandmother smoked Pot legally for the first time. She has been listening to a dubstep Frank Sinatra song on repeat for an hour and a half.”

Houston, We Have A Problem

Houston, We Have A Problem - Behind The Awkwardness

“So a few years back I was digging through old family photos at my mom’s house and I came across this magical gem from sometime around 1990. That is yours truly rockin’ the pink shorts around age 9 and that is my mom. This photo was taken in our old living room. Now, there was some major family drama regrading this specific photo because I swore to my mom, grandma, aunt, etc that the painting you see hanging in the background of this photo was of an astronaut taking a piss on the moon. My mother however refused the claim arguing she would never in a million years have been so ghetto as to have a painting of an astronaut pissing on the moon hanging in her living room. I argued the claim for 45 minutes but was outnumbered by the women in my family who accused me of nothing more than trolling. I however stood firm by my claim, trusting my memory wasn’t betraying me. This whole thing has since become a running joke on me, all of them ganging up on me to rub it in my face that I would think something so stupid and argue them over it…oh how I effing wanted a copy of this painting to prove them wrong!”

Then an old World of Warcraft friend sent this:

“VINDICATION AT LAST! The astronaut is indeed draining his lizard and no matter how much my family will try to deny it, I now have proof that at least at one point my mom had some pretty trashy ghetto taste for art. The interwebs is indeed a beautiful place. Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to give my mother a ring.”

It’s time to put your family’s health aside for 24 hours. National Donut Day (yes, it’s a real day), also known as the best free food holiday of the year, is today Friday, June 5th.

Dunkin’ Donuts

The deal: Get a free donut — any donut — with the purchase of a drink at participating stores nationwide.
When: All day.

Krispy Kreme

The deal: One free donut of your choice, and you don’t have to buy anything. Available at participating stores in the U.S. and Canada, just not Connecticut and Puerto Rico.

Tim Hortons

The deal: One free donut with any purchase — if you show them (or print) the National Donut Day offer that will be posted on the Tim Hortons Facebook page.
When: All day.

For National Donut Day, participating Jiffy Lube locations in the Houston, Philadelphia, and Florence, S.C. areas are offering free tire air pressure checks to help you avoid having to use a spare, or a “donut tire.” Along with the pressure check, you’ll get some complimentary donuts — just keep in mind, you’re going to a car garage for free donuts…
When: Free donuts all day Friday at the above locations, and free tire pressure checks throughout June in the Florence, S.C. area.

Tales Of A Fourth Grader

Tales Of A Fourth Grader - Behind The Awkwardness

“My 4th Grade school picture.  This was the last year of my life that I remember being blissfully ignorant of what others thought of my appearance and it shows.  Even my own mother calls this my “Only a mother would love” picture.  Soon after this my parents got me contacts, presumably out of pity.”
