You Talk Too Much

My older sister was a freshman at UCI in the fall of 1992. My parents wanted her to experience life in a university dormitory and avoid a one hour commute. The rest of us frequently visited her on weekends. On one such occasion, she was in tears. I listened as she told our mother about a student named Mickey. He was a nice guy who also lived in her dormitory. Mickey always had his left hand in the corresponding pocket of his pants. She had just asked him why this was so in front of a group of students in a lounge. He removed his hand from his pocket and showed everyone that it was deformed. You Talk Too Much (1985), by Run-D.M.C., is a song that most of us should hear on a regular basis. It reminds us of how dangerous the mouth can be. Sometimes we need to tell ourselves to be quiet. Sometimes we need to tell ourselves to shut up.

Do You Remember The Easy-Bake Oven?

I am all for bringing it back as a cremation oven toy. I may just pitch the idea to Disney for a Doc McStuffins edition for dolls and stuffed animals that prove to be goners. I wish more people would take action on good things for children.

Choice Of Colors

You cannot fight prejudice with prejudice. Prejudice is ignorance. You fight ignorance with education. Nearly all of us harbor some forms of prejudice. We must identify these forms before we can eradicate them. Such ignorance is not bliss. It prevents us from reaching our potential as citizens, loved ones, and human beings. Get rid of it. Choice Of Colors (1969), by The Impressions, is a phenomenal catalyst. Curtis Mayfield (songwriter) addresses African Americans but his message applies to all. Digest it.

There are those who are in the dark. Then, there are those who are in the light but choose to shut their eyes.
