When I brag on my wife, I talk about how she was a professional pastry chef, and is now going back to school to get her PhD in organic chemistry.

When she brags on me, she talks about how I do laundry.

I'd like to be my own lever, aimed at a weight of my choosing.

I listed out all the parts of my job, in order to figure out where I can increase the leverage of certain tasks and be more effective in what I do.

my friend was telling a story today about a time he went to the gym and there was a super jacked beefy dude on a machine. and a guy comes in who is equally ripped, just completely chiseled from stone, and he goes up to the shorter beefy dude and say "nice lift! i'm trying to get big like you!" and the other guy says "i'm trying to get big like YOU!" and the first guy steps a little bit closer and says "i'm trying to get big like YOU!" and the short guy stands up and says "i'm trying to get big like YOU!" and this continues until they hug and slap each other on the back, still repeating the phrase

more people showed up and they repeated the entire ritual each time
