TELL ME SOMETHING GOOD: A Graduation Story That Will Give You All The Feels

TELL ME SOMETHING GOOD: A Graduation Story That Will Give You All The Feels

It’s gradation season. Time for parties, diplomas, and throwing caps in the year to celebrate the class of 2021. It’s also time for feel good stories that show some things a just a little more important than walking across the stage.

A grandmother in New Jersey tragically broke her hip two days before she was supposed to fly to Minnesota to watch her granddaughter’s graduation.  When her granddaughter heard the news she decided to get on a plane and fly to New Jersey. She showed up in the hospital room in her cap and gown to surprise her grandmother so she could see her in person. What a wonderful thing to do.

Congrats to all the grads this season!

MUNDANE  MYSTERIES: What makes a show or play “off-Broadway”?

MUNDANE MYSTERIES: What makes a show or play “off-Broadway”?

Broadway has announced that shows will be coming back this September which is very exciting. I always thought the difference between Broadway and Off-Broadway shows was the location, turns out it’s not. It’s all based on the the size of the theater actually.

Anything 500 seats is considered Broadway. 100 to 499 seats is “Off-Broadway” . And then there is a third tier I had no idea about which is 99 seats or less called “Off-Off-Broadway.”

Can’t wait to get back and see some shows this fall in NYC. On, off, or off-off.

TELL ME SOMETHING GOOD: Creative Couple Help Out New Parents In Hilarious Way

TELL ME SOMETHING GOOD: Creative Couple Help Out New Parents In Hilarious Way

If you have kids you’ve absolutely gone through that new parent phase where all the expenses start adding up and it can feel overwhelming. Especially the diapers! Who knew you’d spend so much on a product that gets thrown away more times that you can count in a day.

This one couple in Los Angeles understood that new parent pain and decided to do something good for them. They recently went around to different Target stores in the area and hid cash in packs of diapers so when a new parent bought some they’d get a little surprise. They hid about $1,000 in cash total saying they just wanted to spread some joy and kindness. So nice of them!

MUNDANE MYSTERIES: Why is a computer mouse called a mouse?

MUNDANE MYSTERIES: Why is a computer mouse called a mouse?

You’re probably using one right now. The reason it’s called a mouse is pretty obvious. It’s small and quick and the cord that connects to the computer is similar to the mouse’s tail. But did you know that it wasn’t always named after this famous rodent?

Early versions of what we all know as the computer “mouse” now actually referred to it as a turtle. Which also makes a lot of sense! Turtle’s have a hard shell on top and moving parts underneath. Back in those days computer experts weren’t sure that we as consumers would embrace “the turtle” so they went with mouse instead. Which seems to have worked.
