Groundhog Day. . . ??? WTH, DST?..

I think she meant that she would take that day back. There's no way she likes Nickelback. Guaranteed.

Agreed. She means that she'd go back so that she could un-see them. And thereby remove Satan's splinter from her eye and the dark prince's piercing wail from the inner recesses of her worm-riddled brain. If she had any real decency, though, she'd go back to the inception of the band-which-will-not-be-named and prevent its malformed birth.

If I had to? As in I have no choice in the matter? If i don't have the option as to whether or not I would, I doubt the particular day wouldn't be my choice either.

You might want to go back to that day in second grade when they taught everyone how to spell fourth.

Today is National Hug a Bird day. I put my coat on and took the turkey out of the freezer and gave it a nice big hug.

"“ The first time I saw Nickelback.” — Eva Nelson,, bartender at Conroy’s Pub, Tilden, Neb."

When I first read that statement, I thought she would take it back, which is reasonable because Nickelback sucks but the word "first" got me, like she has seen them multiple times and wants to relive the experience....poor girl

I want to relive one of the days that I was hanging in the mom's womb....didn't have to work, get up early, learn spit, free health care and room and board. I guess I could do that now, but it would be called social welfare....zoinks!

SOB!!!!! Now I want to hear that story

MarcoPogo 5 years ago

That was the first thought I had as well. It looks like the question may have been asked in different ways for different people. Or does the first guy really want to go back and disappoint his parents again?

Yeah, really. Cry me a river, pal. At least you can narrow it down to one day. I've got thousands to choose from.

I didn't notice she was from Nebraska at first... now it all makes sense!!!

If I'm just reliving & not changing, I'll choose our wedding day only this time I would like more cake.

If I get to edit, I'll go for last Wednesday & tweak my powerball ticket.

I've heard there was a secret chord That David played, and it pleased the Lord But you don't really care for music, do you? It goes like this The fourth, the fifth The minor fall, the major lift The baffled king composing Hallelujah

It's a sad day, at least for me. Dave Brubeck has passed away at 91.

Eddie_Haskell 5 years ago

That sucks. I felt the same way Sept. 28, 1991, the day Miles died. I met him in May 1988. He wasn't very friendly, but then I'm white.

Buddy, I'm still trying to figure you out, You seriously need help. A makeover might be a good place to start. You look really tired, beaten down and guilty. But then most Irish people do. I think it's a Catholic thing. Was it the time you knocked your Uncle's tooth out at the family brawl on Bloody Sunday? Wait, I know. It was that trip to Thailand. Man, don't feel bad. I really thought the one I met was a girl too, until we got to know each other better. Even then we really hit it off. Go easy on yourself. Tell the folks to take a hike.

There was that day after I started dating my future wife, that we were snowed in by the ice and snowstorm for a full weekend. That was . . . a productive day.

"Life is more about the journey, not where you have been or where you are going."

Um Artie, I think where you've been and where you're going are both parts of the journey. Are you drunk again, or do you just need a map? I broke my moral compass a long time ago.

Do I get to make changes? Or just relive it?

Eddie_Haskell 5 years ago

The day I tried to live, BoB? This is a really confusing question. Yellow journalism, that's what it is. I think I'll go back in the bathroom for a while.

And here I thought you were going to say Nov. 6, 2012. You were looking forward to that day for so long, I thought for sure you would want to relive it.

The day I returned home from Vietnam.
