Punch this.

Today, some random “personal reveals” about me. Just because I will stop at nothing for the good of the blog.

When I go to the grocery store, half the fun of it for me is bagging the groceries. I always use paper. The only reason for this is that the heads of cauliflower do not roll around in my trunk when I use paper. With plastic, all bets are off.

Grocery store workers must let the customer decide if they want paper or plastic because baggers can’t be choosers.


Years and years ago, I worked for a bank. Not many people know this.

So yes. I used to be a banker, but then I lost interest.

Uggh. Uggghh.

Before that, though, I studied Chemistry in college. At Butler University. Actually, I was pretty good at the whole deal. A chemistry whiz on my way to molecular proportions. Until I learned about their fate.

When chemists die, they barium.

Super Duper Ughhhh.

Some of you know, that right now, I volunteer for one of the local schools. I get the opportunity to work in the classroom with the kids. Some days, I do testing with them, or reading and such. Other times, I do clerical work, like Ninja Photocopying and Laminating. I wear my black belt on those days. At any rate, I’ve met lots of nice people from teachers, to admins, to lots of great kids.

Sadly, though, there was some local news on that:

There was a cross-eyed teacher who lost her job because she couldn’t control her pupils.

Uhh. Uhhh. Uhhhhggghhh.

Most of you know too, that I do not drink alcohol anymore. It didn’t suit me very well. Over the years, I’ve heard a lot of sad stories along those lines.


I know a guy who’s addicted to brake fluid, but he says he can stop
any time.

Uggggeee. Ugh.

Finally, with a name like Kronenberger, you know that I take my German Heritage very seriously. I am German through and through, on both my parent’s sides. German. German. So yes, I am pretty sensitive about that whole deal.

But I have found that people will give me a hard time, I’ll tell you.

Jokes about German sausage are the wurst.

Okay. Just. Ugh.

I hope this made you smile, in some small way. And that your day is on the upswing from here on out. You see, I’m a writer and an artist. Definitely not a performing artist.

And once….

I did a theatrical performance about puns. It was a play on words.
