Ed’s Award Winning Chili

The weather is finally cool enough which means it’s chili making time.  My taste buds are acting up just thinking of the scrumptious taste of good chili.  And because I’m humble (word used loosely)  I won’t mention that my chili is in fact Award Winning Chile. haha. For four years straight I submitted this recipe in a chili cook-off and won first place every time. An ironic thing was one year the prize was a recipe book for CHILI.  ha. It kind of made me chuckle. Why in the world would you give someone that won a Chili cook-off  a recipe book on how to make chili. haha. It still makes me cackle at the thought.

I Would Have Rather Sat In Someone Else’s Urine

TMI:

I go to the restroom more often than I should. Sometimes I take my time while I take care of business and other times my bladder is on the verge of bursting so I run in… sit… breath… and exhale.  Those are the times that you gross out because the person that was there before you never learned to pee correctly and peed on the seat. Or the previous person must have forgotten how to wipe because they tinkle on the seat.  Yeah GROSS! Sitting on someone else’s pee is super annoying & disgusting. Well, luckily that was not what happened to me… THIS TIME.

Chocolate or Poop: When in doubt… go with poop!

If you’ve been around children, you most likely have heard the saying, “Chocolate or poop” once or twice. It had been 5 years since the last time I dealt with the dilemma of what “IT” was. You can read about the funny (or gross) Chocolate or Poop story here.

Today a student told me that someone wrote on the bathroom wall with poop. My first thought was, WHAT IN THE WORLD? There is no stinking way that a student would do such a thing. So my thoughts were that it was most likely a student playing a prank and smeared chocolate on the wall.  When I went to the bathroom stall to check out the supposed poop on wall (chocolate in my mind), I looked at it. Examined it (with my eyes) and it actually didn’t look like poop. What a relief!.. So I thought.
