A few years ago I dreamt up an idea to take over the world. I'll probably never be able to go through with it but dreams are good. First, I will run for president of the United States. My one and only platform would be to save the people of the United States of America money by not painting the black line between the two yellow lines on the road. If you notice, whenever there's a double yellow line on the ground, there is a solid black line between the two yellows. That will save the American people one-third the regular cost of painting double yellow lines on the road. When I am president, I will destroy the current form of government. I will then be known as the High Commander. I will have a selected group of people that will assist me. I will then engage in a compromise of common borders between the United States, Canada, and Mexico. United States has the intelligence and ingenuity. Canada has the land and resources. Mexico has the hard working labor force. Together, we will become to most powerful nation in the world.

Communication works in two directions. You need a speaker and a listener. Between these two is a third component: implications. Implications, itself, is divided in two. The speaker can give an implication and a listener can receive an implication. Although it's in the same conversation, it may not be the same implication. A speaker might not imply anything but the listener still receives something implied. On the other hand, a speaker may imply something that a listener might never receive. Therefore, it is important that the speaker and listener coincide with their conversation. It is not good to be quick and judge what a speaker may imply since no implication may exist. It is also bad to not pay enough attention to get an implication that is there. Be careful of what you say, but more importantly, be careful of what you hear.

I think it is important to note that not all Subways are created equal. Subway sandwich prices differ from one Subway to another. I've found 6" Cold Cut Trios from $2.49 to as much as $2.99. Each Subway offers different choices also. One Subway has garlic and Parmesan while others have Parmesan and oregano. And what happened to white bread? Was it not "classy" enough that they have to call it Italian? At a good Subway you can choose from American, cheddar, or provolone. Mediocre Subways only offer American. Nicer Subways have olives, peppercini, cucumbers, and pickles although with the lettuce, tomatoes, onion, and green bell pepper that can be found anywhere. I like how thin they slice the cucumber. You get the refreshness of the cucumber without all the massive chunk of cucumber. I miss the u-cut they used to have. Also remember to Eat Fresh.

I ate a cup of tapioca pudding. The texture wasn't quite right. The pudding bit back. That's the importance of have good texture when you cook. Texture is seldom remembered.
