I remember being a kid and my best friend would call me up on the phone. We would discuss the hot button issues at the time. The main topics for discussion was what cartoon Stick Stickly would land on. The main topic for discussion was Nick in the Afternoon. There was a cartoon that I can remember only being landed on once. I, for the life of me, do not remember that show, but getting to see old reruns of Hey Dude, Salute Your Shorts and You Can’t Do That On Television was so worth it. The years 1995 to 1998 it was just sheer awesome to do a little Popsicle stick. I can still remember the jingle going through my head. Write to me, Stick Stickly. P.O.

It brings back a time when there wasn’t any pressure. The biggest worry of the day was going to be getting a chocolate or white milk. Being a child was great, but when we get older I think we forget what it’s like. We are so worried about everything in every aspect of life. There is always one person that we forget to make happy. That person is ourselves. I remember that childhood moment, cause it was really what started me being a pop culture whore. It’s true. That same friend would call me and we would get excited about Plinko on the Price Is Right. We have lost that art. When I am saying WE, I mean all of US, as a whole. We need to make “us” happy. It doesn’t matter what causes it, just as long as we are happy. The old saying “maybe we should stop and smell the flower” rings so true. Tonight, when you are sitting down for dinner, I want you to think. I want to think of the little things. I want you to think of the moments that have made you happy and just know that more will come. Want to know why? When you are happy you know Where It’s At.
