Quick Hits, Vol. 42

Happy Wednesday, y’all! It’s time for the forty-second installment of Quick Hits! I’ve decided to publish a total of 52 volumes of Quick Hits, so there will be ten additional volumes after this one and then we’ll move on to a new weekly feature. But who knows? Maybe I’ll sprinkle in some Quick Hits even after that.

But enough about future Cosas Totum. Let’s live in the moment and get right to the Quick HIts!

Wouldn’t it be fun to see school games played at the Olympics? You know? Four square, hopscotch, wall ball, tag, hide and seek, etc. Wouldn’t that be great? Imagine how intense those games of hide and seek would get. And I wonder if they’d have a “no cherry bombs” rule in four square.

Speaking of sports, it’s wild that there are two different sports call football and two different sports called handball. The English language has about 171,000 words in its lexicon, but for some reason we have duplicate sport names. Unreal.

If you refer to sports drinks or fruit candy by its flavor rather than its color, you’re more adult than I will ever be.

You ever get a craving for something you’ve never even had before? Isn’t that weird? I randomly got a craving for some Peking duck not long ago and I’ve never even had Peking duck before. To be fair, I have had duck a couple of times, so I guess I would know what to expect as far as the general taste and texture of the meat, but I have no idea what actually goes into making Peking duck. So strange.
