Typically, I write these posts on the 1st of the month but Easter this year fell on April 1st. That meant Easter Sunrise service in the cemetery to start the day… a little napping throughout the day… and a little time spent working on an April Fool’s prank video.
By the time all that was all done, I was tired and uninspired. But fear not! I’m back with another monthly installment of some of the things I’m digging right now.
What I’m Into Right Now – April 2018
Cinnamon Bears – Sure, we’re coming off a time of Easter chocolates, jelly beans, Peeps, Peeps, and Cadbury Creme Eggs… but one of my favorite candies of all time is Cinnamon Bears. A few weeks ago my wife got me a 2-pound bag and I’ve been working my way through it just a few bears at a time.
Lime Water – This isn’t some new fancy drink you can buy at the corner convenience store. I’ve simply been adding a quick squeeze of lime juice concentrate to my ice water. We ended up with an extra plastic lime full of juice at home so I took one to keep in my work refrigerator. It’s funny how just a little lime has me drinking more water.
Deception – I’ve always been a fan of magic shows… but this ABC TV show is a different kind of magic show. It features a magician who is helping the FBI solve crimes… in hopes they can help him exonerate his twin brother who was framed (and convicted) for murder. It’s equal parts magic, comedy, action, and drama.
Drunk Girl – This Chris Janson song isn’t getting much radio play (yet) but I really love this song… for both the music and the content. With a title like “Drunk Girl”, you might think this is an upbeat party tune. Actually, it’s a stripped down, piano-heavy tune about a guy who does the right thing. If I had teen boys I’d play this song to them as an example of what a true gentleman would do.
Throat Coat Tea – I’ve been fighting a cold lately that’s given me a sore throat which can be an occupational hazard when you have a daily 5-hour radio show to do. This tea not only tastes great but it really soothes a sore throat.
