Stir Up Saturday – Weak Week

I wish I specifically knew what had caused the lack of posting five years ago. I wish I knew, because I’d love to look back with 20/20 vision. I’m sure I would think, “Dude, that was nothing.”

Or maybe I’d say, “If you got through that, then you can get through anything.”

Or maybe I was just lazy that week. I’ll never know. It doesn’t matter either. This is a M.U.S.C.L.E. website and I’m glad I didn’t bore you with specifics. Looks like I waited five years to do that.

Something that wasn’t boring was MMMM #27. I love the group picture, but I love Terry’s story even more. It spans from childhood to adulthood. It’s a great M.U.S.C.L.E. story. And it seems like Terry still has the pinball machine.

I love hearing stories about how M.U.S.C.L.E. figures intertwine into peoples’ lives. It’s my suspicion that many people don’t have those stories. I have less than I would like, but I certainly have some good ones. Maybe the strangest one is from, what feels like, hundreds of years ago.

My wife, at the time girlfriend, was buying her work-coffee from a M.U.S.C.L.E. collector. She ended up taking figures to work for a trade. In retrospect I don’t know what is more amazing. Figuring out that the coffee guy was a M.U.S.C.L.E. collector or my wife taking M.U.S.C.L.E. figures to work. That story has to be, at least, 15 years old – if not more.

The Epilogue from five years ago is ok. I don’t know if my “unplugging” was happening around this time, but I am a major subscriber to unplugging. I almost entirely turn my phone off on the weekend. I probably border on rude because I unplug so often and so completely. I don’t care, because I’ve never missed anything.

I still think of the Chicken Lady when I see Giada De Laurentiis. I think it is really because I still want my wife to laugh at the joke. At this point, I probably have a better chance at getting a Cabbage Head laugh.
