You learn something new every day, whether or not you realize it right away. There are no exceptions to this rule.

Today I learned the difference between bowler hats, pork pie hats and fedoras. Before today, they were all just fedoras to me. It never occurred to me that all three of these different hat styles had different names.

I also learned that Roseanne is Jewish, and that gummy shot glasses exist.

It doesn't have to be anything life-changing or significant or anything, just something that you learned. So AG, I ask you now, what did you learn today?

I learned not to buy grapes from Walmart. Or at least from one particular store in one particular town.
Two days in the refrigerator and half of them are already moldy. >_<"

I learned that a good chunk of the 7-8 year olds I deal with this week already know far more swears than they should. I let this one little boy text insults to one of my friends and he wanted to use some...questionable vocabulary. How do children learn these words? Who gives them access to that stuff?

Also I (re)learned that some children have no concept of personal space and GRAB ONTO YOUR LEGS WHILE WALKING
However if the child is small enough I can walk a reasonably fair distance.

Last but certainly not least, I learned that there's only one person at the espresso bar I go to after my shift that can make a decent cream soda. If it's not made by the tattooed guy, it's less good.

The internet. Seriously though, parents. Not kidding. It's been proven that these kind of things are learned through parents (lying as well).

Anyways, I learned how far my limits of hate can go without exploding and making me kill someone and I have yet to discover that limit (one day I will, possibly soon). I wish I wasn't taken as such a peaceful and bystander sort of guy in real life so I could ACTUALLY REPLY AGGRESSIVLY FOR ONCE WITHOUT EVERYONE THINKING I'VE GONE MAD, I GET ANGRY TOO WORLD, DEAL WITH IT.

Anyways.

You get the idea, I'm really hatred by the circumstances I am dealing with right now. And I clearly can't let it all escape or I will get in so much trouble you would think I escaped my house at 4 am.

I learned that two of my posts were deleted within the past 5 days. I'll never know which ones they were, nor will I ever care in the slightest, but I've always kept a close watch on the number.

I learned what a Latvian musical instrument called a kokle sounds like. This is probably the most interesting thing that Ive learned in a month.

A new "neologism".

Made by a waetherman... instead of "band of cloud" he used "rain-banger (rain-sausage)"
