Welcome To Case's Column

Let me say a big welcome to all of you for joining me here. I'm going to call these blog meetings Case's Column. I wanted to use "Corner", but that was already taken. Since 2008, it's been a real privilege to come on here and share some of my life with you, and it's a big world where we live.

In these blogs, I'll just speak whatever is on my mind, but we will be playing within the rules here. I may pick a particular topic, point out an event, or shoot the breeze. I'm a little bit of an essayist at times, so I'll just speak what's on my mind, and I might tell a story or two. Or, I might spew out an opinion or three. There will be some serious moments, some tender, some poignant, but there will also be those moments that you'll just bust out laughing. But, hopefully, everything will be in good fun here. And, of course, there's a place below for your comments and thoughts as we go along here. So feel free to join me for the ride -- I sure as heck hope I'm doing this right and not making any mistakes.

Thanks for taking your time in reading Case's Column. Hopefully, you'll enjoy being entertained by it as much as I've enjoyed putting these writings together. And thanks for the time you spend in City-Data.com, where it's great to be alive!

From Our "What’s for Dinner?" Files: Frisp And Slithered

Posted 04-12-2024 at 11:42 AM by case44

Sometimes, we have such great moments on our City-Data forums, and there are all kinds of people on here who share their personal stories. All types of things can happen at any moment, and many times, we can get caught up in the moment.

That's as best as I can describe. Sometimes, we'll say things that are unintentional, but then, those accidents become ideas. Below is a snippet from our "What's For Dinner?" thread, perhaps the most popular of all of the threads in our Food forum, and our friend puginabug shared with all of us what plans she had for dinner last night. She got so excited about it that she said this:

Frisp?? Now, before we overreact here, we just might be on to something. Maybe it's not a mistake after all; perhaps we may just have a gem. I'm not wishing to make fun of puginabug; rather, I'm choosing to have fun with this. Frisp. This gives me a great idea for any future dishes! I mean, won't french fries or tater tots bring a new dimension as they are being made? Now, subsequently, she clarified that she'd meant to say "crisp", but I still couldn't resist the moment.

Look, if it'd make anyone feel better, your writer made a blooper of his own just a few posts later that same day but chose not to correct it. This happened when I thought I had the right word and later, it turned out that I didn't. While I won't bother to use the entire quote, I referred to my enchiladas as having slithered jalapenos.

Say what, case??

Hardly a gem there, but what I should have said was slivered, as those slices were razor-thin as they were not just a topping, but a slight garnish. Slivered.

On my end, 'twas just another senior moment.
