For the letter Q, let’s focus on....
Sorry, Quirkyloon, I know you were hoping for a focus but then I’d have every other reader whining and wanting their own post and puppies and rainbows and yodeling gnomes and such…
This one comes timely since I “quit” my gig as the entertainment director for the old folk’s home down the street. I sight “difference of philosophy” as my reason. Seems they weren’t too thrilled with my monthly program:
Weekly “Guess the skin blemishes” contest. We’ll pick a guest resident each week and let everyone guess how many skin tags, moles, and other blemishes they have. Closest contestant wins a hearing aide upgrade!
Seek and Find. Similar to hide and seek but instead we round up all the dementia and Alzheimer residents and set them loose on the facility with the rest of the residents in the cafeteria. After 20 minutes we then set everyone loose to see who can round up the most.
Old Diaper. Sort of like Old Maid where you try and avoid guessing who has the filled diaper…
Pimp My Walker. A wonderful craft event…have the snappiest walker this side of Florida!
Why When I was Young. Join in on the fun. A participatory story telling event based on the theme of “why when I was young we had to walk 5 miles through mayonnaise filled streets” and other such nonsensical tales.
Name that Med. Try and name the med in the least amount of side effects as your opponents.
Still…quitters are celebrities too. Let’s take a look at some famous quitters…
That's right, Sarah Palin quit her governor job (before they kicked her out no doubt)

Former American Idol judge Paula Abduhl apprently wasn't being idolized enough on that show...
Dave Chappelle quit his Comedy Central show and walked away from 55 million (he could have at least called me to fill in)
Richard Nixon famously quit his presidency after Watergate
NBA coach Pat Riley quit three different NBA teams
David Lee Roth left Van Halen to go solo (yeah...that worked well, Dave)
Gary Larson quit his beloved "Far Side" cartoon at its peak in popularity because he didn't want to get repetitive.
