    As far as the glasses go, it depends on if they’re prescription ($$$) or drugstore ($). I use both but keep my prescription glasses in special places, while the drugstore variety may freely roam.

    As for the rest, we call them Post-it notes or sticky notes, Xerox may be used as a verb but I’ve stopped saying mimeographed (mostly), and quit smelling my copies (mostly), Band-Aids may be “Pick up some Band-Aids but not the Band-Aids brand”, “pop” is the usual term here in the Pacific NW, soda usually applies to plain soda water (as in “scotch and soda”), although “cola” may be used as a generic term for Pepsi/Coke, etc. And RC Cola and Pop Shoppe Pop were my favorite colas, back when I drank colas!

    I think Google likes being a verb, because it gets them more name recognition. I use them, but do prefer DuckDuckGo, just need to reset my computer- again. Microsoft pushes Bing on me daily, which I hate. And “hook and loop” is the stupidest name; there aren’t even hooks involved (or Captain Hooks, for that matter). Just call it Not Velcro! ;)

    What about a cat in a shark costume riding a Roomba? (My all-time favorite cat video!) =^..^=

    Alaska will pay your loans if you agree to practice there for four years. ;) (Currently rewatching “Northern Exposure”.)

    20 of the first 22 doctors who deigned to see me when I was exposed to mold were suffering from the “god syndrome”, becoming a “god” the only reason they went to medical school, where I’m sure they placed last in their classes. If they didn’t know what the illness was and couldn’t placate their victim, I mean, patient, with the pill of the day to get their free luxury ski trip from Big Pharm, the condition didn’t exist. The gastro told me women frequently fake illnesses so they don’t have to work, as we prefer to “stay home, watch teevee, and eat bonbons”. That was after I told him I was regularly passing out when I tried to eat, but whatever. Myron the gastro god knows all!

    So yeah, many doctors have absolutely no compassion and no soul, but just went the doctor route for money and status.

    I do hope you don’t mean that Brad would become a “mechanic” because he’s a slacker. ;) Good automotive technicians, as they are called professionally, what with today’s cars being computers on wheels, are highly sought after and easily make 100 grand and up.

    While I have occasionally muttered/yelled a few things like, “If you wanted your spouse to be able to help you move heavy items, you should have married Tom or Larry!”, my husband and I recently made it through the “Hanging the Gallery Picture Wall” test, and are moving up to the next level, the “Installing the Wood Floor” test. Wish us luck!
