I was an EMT, I treated strokes.
If you can’t talk, just call 911 and keep the line open. If you don’t respond, or if you can just moan, they’ll send the fire department to investigate.
The EMTs need to keep you from choking, so they’ll likely lay you down on your side so they can vacuum out your airway in case you…

Nope, it’s Ross. He’s an asshole.
Won’t let me edit... WTF
It used to be when two people didn’t like each other, they settled it with pistols in the middle of town. It’s a much better and more permanent solution than having two people who hate each other put up with each other indefinitely.
“You’re at an 11 and I’m going to need you at a 4“ is my go-to, especially for Gen-Zers.
The secret step to getting a cat to like you is to be an idiot. They love that - it helps their condescending personality. Ask me how I know
Never mind. I’m an idiot.
That one about the cats doesn’t give any advice on how to get them to like you.
Nerf Gun. No one is ever too old for a nerf gun.
I read recently about a GOOD Secret Santa exchange. You get a person’s name, then you buy a toy based on the person’s personality or interest. So you might get a football with their favorite teams logo, or a toy sewing machine for a crafter.
I’ve been doing scratch off lottery tickets for a while and it goes over well once people see they didn’t just get a Starbucks gift card. So I HAVE started to creatively wrap said tickets for maximum confusion and impact.
I found that an easy way to put a twist on a Secret Santa gift is the way you package your present. For instance, one year, I froze a gift card for a local hot sauce store in a block of ice. It’s easy to do - fill a container half-full of water, pop it in the freezer. When it’s thoroughly frozen, center the gift card…
Snuggie. Everybody loves them but no one wants to be seen buying one.
I give movie passes. For white elephant gift exchanges, I try to stick to the spirit of the thing (a crappy gift), and have definitely had people be upset that they got a bag of decorative gravel.
This is more dramatic
1. mix the umamis: msg + nucleosides, so: soy sauce with fish sauce with chicken bouillon with yeasties with parma cheese with wooster-shy with miso with with tomacco paste with anchovy etc. some of these are repetitons and thats okay
This works better with some foods than others. Freezing ruptures the cell structures of vegetables and meats, so the texture is never quite the same once they’re defrosted. Starchy foods like potatoes and beans freeze well, as do blended soups that don’t rely on the texture of the ingredients to be tasty.
This also allows for a little flexibility if you do intend to meal plan but then a wrench gets thrown into the system (speaking from experience when I was away from home far longer than I expected due to a medical procedure). The Worst is coming home to a fridge full of rotten foods. Goodbye, baked tofu, you would…
Back in the day my Mom used to save all the TV dinner aluminum trays and make leftover individual MREs for us. When the kids needed dinner and mom way away dinner was a defrost and re-heat away. TV dinners got old real fast but the trays were handy. To this day I still save individual portions of the big recipes,…
