The return of BWO
Breakfast with Oz is a reincarnation of a blog I used to do for a WOW guild named Myth Guard. It is a long standing guild still active on the Farstriders server. BWO, as it was affectionately known, was so named because I wrote it at breakfast time every morning.
Ok, I’m calling bullshit on that last statement. That’s NOT why it was called BWO. First of all, who the hell tries to write and eat at the same time? Hmmm. I actually have been guilty of that, but certainly not on a daily basis. The real reason for the name was simply because the blog talked about whatever happened to be on my mind at the time I sat down to write it. Makes sense, right? Because when I have breakfast I just eat whatever happens to be in my way. Look, it’s just a damn name. Who really cares.
So, today I’m 65. It’s not my birthday so don’t bother sending me well wishes or presents (unless you insist. I do love presents). I mean, I was 65 yesterday, and I’ll be 65 tomorrow, but today is what we’re talking about and I’m 65. Now that’s not particularly old anymore. There was a time when I was far less than 65 and 65 was really freaking old, but now that I’m 65 it really isn’t like that anymore. I collect social security, which I never expected would happen. I always thought I would never get to this age, and further assumed that even if I somehow did make it, the program would be broke. Well, I was wrong on both scores. There, I said it. I was wrong. Don’t be saying I can’t admit my mistakes just because I don’t make any now.
I have other things to talk about, but I don’t want to spend all my time on this singular post. I just wanted to introduce the purpose and topic of Breakfast with Oz,which is none and none, or more accurately, everything and anything. Oh! Hey, reading BWO might go well with your breakfast! Maybe that was it…
