Wednesday means Quick Hits here at Cosas Totum. Quick Hits is a collection of short thoughts. It began as a way for me to work my way out of some writer’s block, but has since become a weekly article. If you’re interested in more Quick Hits, check out our full Quick Hits library!
Today is March 24, 2021, which means it’s been a depressing 37 years since Judd Nelson, Emilio Estevez, Anthony Michael Hall, Molly Ringwald, and Ally Sheedy had detention together.
Speaking of The Breakfast Club, how did I ever think Judd Nelson was a teenager in that movie? He’s like 35. Still a great flick, though.
March 24 is also National Chocolate Covered Raisin Day, and chocolate covered raisins are the worst. Why do they get a day? You’re thinking it’ll be a chocolate covered peanut or maybe even just a nib of chocolate, but then you get raisin? Yuck.
You know how beer has been brewed for thousands of years? Do you think there’s some ancient, foolproof hangover cure that we just don’t know about? That’d be something. Either way, I’m glad we have refrigeration nowadays so we don’t have to drink beer that’s been sitting in the desert sun all day.
Why does every American high school have a horse girl? A girl who is really into horses, not some female centaur. I’m not knocking horse girls; if I had the money to afford a horse and the time to treat it right I might get one myself, but it’s just crazy how every single high school in America seems to have a horse girl. Sometimes they’re also in band.
Do you think Charles Dickens ever went by Chuck?
I know it’s just a cartoon, but as someone who was born and raised in Texas, I can tell you I’ve met real people just like every single character from King of the Hill. I know about 20 Dal Gribbles, 20 Bill Dauterive, maybe 15 Hank Hills, and even a Boomhauer or two.
Golf is one of the least efficient ways to enjoy being outside. You can be in beautiful weather with beautiful scenery, but you can still have your day ruined because your putts aren’t falling that day. Plus it’s expensive. I love it, though.
Bands with names that make them sound like a metal band but in actuality they’re pretty soft: The Grateful Dead, Savage Garden, Iron & Wine, Of Monsters and Men, Widespread Panic, Joan Jett & the Blackhearts, and Death Cab for Cutie.
This isn’t really a Quick Hit, I just wanted to post this video because baseball season is around the corner and baseball ejections are some of my favorite sports moments.
Have a great Wednesday, everyone!
