    That'll leave a mark.

    About twenty years ago we had a pretty good hail storm come through the city where I live. My home at the time had a spanish tile roof. To my unskilled eye it looked undamaged, but I reported it to the insurance company anyway. They sent out this adjuster who was maybe 14 years old. He climbed up there, looked around and announced that he saw no damage. He said, "these spanish tile roofs are pretty sturdy. Usually they'll handle up to basketball size hail."

    My response: "Basketball size hail??? Isn't that what wiped out the dinosaurs?? W T F?
    That community is already in the process of dissolution where each man begins to eye his neighbor as a possible enemy, where non-conformity with the accepted creed, political as well as religious, is a mark of disaffection; where denunciation, without specification or backing, takes the place of evidence; where orthodoxy chokes freedom of dissent; where faith in the eventual supremacy of reason has become so timid that we dare not enter our convictions in the open lists, to win or lose.

        Had some rain here. Maybe a touch of thunder. I was expecting much worse at first, then remembered I'm just inside the western side of the heat island (494/694 loop). It was gonna go either north or south, but not really through.
        Never really developed a taste for tequila. Kind of hard to understand how you make a drink out of something that sharp, inhospitable. Now, bourbon is easy to understand.

                        But I don't deny it. I embrace it. YES, I WRITE CHECKS AND EVEN BETTY WHITE SHAKES HER HEAD AT ME! I HAVE A FLIP PHONE AND I LOVE IT!

                          Checks is one thing (they can still serve a purpose), but I'm not sure that having a flip phone is something to brag about.

                              I'm not paying $600 or whatever it is for a goddam phone, since all I use my phone for is for TELEPHONE CALLS! And ok, a text ONCE in a while.

                                I don't particularly like admitting this, but texting (whether it's actual texting, or Tweeting) is virtually all I do with my phone now. Some 4G Internet browsing when I'm on the road, plus data for my Delta and Hilton apps when I'm at the airport and WiFi is being squirrely, but that's standard.

                                Also, the prices for a new smartphone lately are more like $800-1000, which is why I haven't upgraded in 3 years. It really is an outrage now.
