7 Quick Takes - Vol. 97 (Bad billiards, scary Skittles, cheese addiction and more)

Everyone makes mistakes. But it's especially important to proofread before you hang a sign on your business. Perhaps it's just a translation issue, but I'm pretty sure that "billiard" is misspelled on this sign I passed the other day. And what's a "culb"?


Out of curiosity, I looked up the place online, and "billiard" and "club" are spelled the regular way on the business' website.

It's also important to double check your political ads before you mail them. I felt sorry for the local political candidate who apparently sent out a bunch of ads with insufficient postage then had to re-send them. I'm not a political activist, so I won't mention the person's name.

We never get too excited about Halloween in our household. But we had fun taking the kids trick or treating. My main observation after scouring the neighborhood for candy is that some adults seem to take Halloween way too seriously.

Are people still worried about poisoned candy on Halloween? The only scary thing I found in our kids' loot were these Skittles that looked like they were recreating the scene from Alien where the thing jumps out of the man's stomach.

I think my two-year-old is part mouse. Whenever we ask her what she wants to eat, she always requests cheese. But we can't give it to her all the time because it makes, uhh, diaper time difficult for her. The other day I gave her a piece, and she said, "I love cheese in my mouth."

She also seems to crave condiments. One day she started eating salsa with a spoon. And sometimes if we offer her ketchup or mustard, she'll prefer that over whatever the main food item is. She also picked up a packet of Chick-fil-A's Honey Roasted BBQ Sauce and started eating it like it was a delicious dessert.

My next post for Austin Catholic New Media next Wednesday will be something I've been wanting to write for a long time. I'm finally going to be compiling a list of the funniest things I've heard priests say over the years. Don't miss it!
