Thursday evening my mother & grandparents came over for supper.  We ordered from Applebee’s.  I love broccoli, my mother…………………………not so much, her meal came with broccoli too.  I took on the role of a parent “You can’t have _______ until you finish your broccoli”.  She’s on a special diet to lose some weight, in order to have her right knee replaced.  I really had no leverage on her.  She had her left knee replaced on Monday, June 26th.  She was determined to go to the Saskatchewan Roughriders home opener on Saturday, July 1st in the new stadium.  She asked every family member if we thought she’d be able to go to the game, we all said “no”.  Finally she spoke with a nurse giggled & said “no”.  My mother didn’t even leave the hospital until Thursday, June 29th.  She’s doing really well though & no she didn’t make it to the game unfortunately.

Friday was the laziest day ever.  I just sat on the couch, & only got up to use the washroom, fill my water bottle, & eat.  Kim went to the boxing gym around noon to train, did laundry while sitting on the couch with me.

Saturday I watched the Saskatchewan Roughrider game that I had recorded from the night before.  Kim was in & out of the house I called iTunes support about the latest Trivium album I had downloaded from iTunes that had the songs out of order.  Took a while, but my problem was solved!

We went out for supper with Corey, Jolene, 4 year old Hannah, James, & Sherry (Kim’s sister).  Kim’s real birthday is today, so the festivities weren’t finished Saturday night.

Tonight we went out for supper at “The Keg” I’m full & tired!  Kim’s real birthday & Rachel’s on October 30th.  No more food until Christmas for me!

 

FAR MORE IMPORTANT THAN MUSIC STUFF!

 

SEXUAL HARASSMENT

Not cool!  As a male I’ve never had to deal with any type of sexual harassment.  Quite a few people I went to school with are all coming out on social media saying “me too”.  It hurts me deeply that they’ve had to deal with this.  I’m glad every person that has dealt with this is now saying they’ve experienced this & want it to stop.  I do also.  It sickens me that there are idiots out there that think this is OK.

Just because I’m a white straight male doesn’t mean it can’t happen to me.  I know that Slipknot/Stone Sour vocalist, Corey Taylor, experienced sexual harassment as a young child by an older “friend”

Those who have dealt with this please remember this one thing.  It’s never ever been your fault.

 

More often it’s a female who gets assaulted.  I have no idea what it feels like to go through this type of harassment.  On behalf of the many more men that share my view on this, I’d like to apologize for all decent humans.

IT WAS NEVER YOUR FAULT!

Watch this movie, but know why it was made.  Joseph Gordon Levitt wanted to show how women are treated as objects & not people.  He sat down with Scarlett Johansson before offering her the script, to tell her why he wrote it?  He wrote it to show how women are viewed as objects not people.

I imagine my apology probably won’t mean much, but I don’t know what else I could say or do, other than support those who have been through this.

 

PLEASE SHARE THIS WITH OTHERS?

 

The more you share this, the more readers I get.  No, I’m not profiting from this in any way.
