    I don't get why everyone in the US is addicted to iced coffee now. I see people walking around with these a lot around the city:

    I drink 1-5 litres of tea daily (depending on how long i'm up, what i'm doing, etc).

    unsweetened, make it at home for about two bucks a day, doesnt upset my stomach. forgot my thermos one day, had a cup of coffee, wanted to puke and shit my guts out for the rest of the day.

    AKA I don't get it either.

    Two bucks for 5 liters of tea? Must be some nice stuff.

    Someone in my general vicinity at the opera tonight farted multiple times. I mean the audible kind. Why would a person do that? Pride would prevent me from doing such a thing.

    On the other hand, at least tonight's audience did not guffaw during the weepy parts, as they did on Wednesday. (I guess while I'm at it, I don't get that either. How can one person interpret scenes as weepy parts and others as laugh-out-loud funny parts? For the record, I am right and the rest of the audience are wrong.)

    It's sweetened out the wazoo, that's how. It's coffee flavored soda. This being America, sweet is always better than bitter.

    Farting loudly at an opera has artistic merit.

    I couldn't tell who did it, so no. I guess it could have been worse, though, so I shouldn't complain. Three operas ago, someone near me smelled like urine.

    I'm pretty sure it was coming from an old guy. But he wasn't that old.

    Oh yeah, just remembered an experience at the grocery store two nights ago. A mother and young daughter--maybe 12 years old or so--are shopping together. Mom asks daughter to go over one aisle to get something. The daughter protests that that's too far to go, and the mother quickly concedes the point and apologizes for asking her daughter to do it in the first place. It is probably not irrelevant to the story that both were overweight. But still, the idea that young children would turn down an opportunity to move their limbs seems very odd to me. You didn't have to twist my arm when I was 12 to get me to move around.

    I always park far away at the first available spot instead of circling to find a closer space, and all my friends bitch. Very annoying. You can't walk an extra 100 feet?

    Yes!!! I never take the closest spot, mainly because I'm still relatively young and able-bodied. There are older people who don't have disabled placards, but who nonetheless have a hard time getting around. When I pass by the closest spot, my equally able-bodied passengers act as if I'd just sentenced them to hard labor.
