Joseph’s 950th Blog Post

Today, I’m writing my 950th blog post for you guys … and, today, I’m going to tell you about one of the classiest people that I have ever known.  His name is Tony Talotta.  Tony is a barber at Maestro’s Barber Shop, which is located in Bridgeville.  We both went to South Fayette High School together … and I have been friends with him for more than ten years.

On July 18, 2018, while I was at Maestro’s Barber Shop, me and Tony were able to wear our “Back in the ‘Burgh” shirts with class.  This was actually planned, believe it or not.

Tony Talotta is, by far, one of the classiest friends I have ever known.  Keep being classy, Tony!

My “super” friend and neighbor, Michael

Since at least the late 2000s, Michael Spicer has been one of my neighbors on National Hill .. and, up until the Summer of 2012, I didn’t really get to know him that much.  That all changed on August 29, 2012, whenever I introduced myself to him near his home on National Hill … and, just three days later, we became friends on Facebook.

I would just like to say that Michael Spicer is both a “super friend” and a “super neighbor.”  We have now been real-life friends for six years … and we also like to celebrate our “friendaversary” in a rather interesting way.  We both have the grey Superman T-shirts … and we like to wear the shirts on or around August 29th of each year.  As of today, I have decided to dub those shirts as our “friendship shirts.”  That’s because our grey Superman T-shirts are now the official shirts of our friendship.

This is Michael Spicer, who is one of my neighbors on National Hill. He has been one of my neighbors for over 10 years … and he has been one of my friends for six years. Michael is a “super” friend and a “super” neighbor.

For more than 10 years, Michael and I have been neighbors on National Hill … and, for six of those years, we have been real-life friends. We are both “super friends” and “super neighbors” … and we have the grey Superman shirts to prove it. The shirts are now the official shirts of our friendship. I have now dubbed them our “friendship shirts.”

Next time, I will write my 950th blog post on my blog … and it will be about one of the classiest people that I have ever known.

In honor of my blog’s fifth year, I would like to show you five blog posts that I wrote down on or around September 2nd in previous years …

Does “Mr. Classy” have a new “stand-in?”

This is a blog post that I had been wanting to write down for sometime … and, today, I get to do just that.

Now, in June of 2016, I became friends with a terrific person named Jonathan Reed.  Just in case you don’t know who he is, he’s married to a person that I went to school with more than 10 years ago.  Anyway, I “hired” him to become Mr. Classy’s “stand-in” just days after we became friends.  This way, he would be able to step up to the plate whenever “Mr. Classy” was unable to fulfill his duties.  He wasn’t able to do that too much, but he still did a fantastic job as Mr. Classy’s “stand-in.”  He gave up his duties whenever he had to part with the grey MK jacket.

This is Mr. Classy’s original “stand-in” … and his name is Jonathan Reed.  He was able to wear his grey MK jacket with class for a few months.  He gave up his duties as Mr. Classy’s “stand-in” whenever he parted with his grey MK jacket.

On August 16, 2018, “Mr. Classy” hired a new “stand-in” … and he would be able to fulfill Mr. Classy’s duties whenever he is unable to do so.  Of course, his new “stand-in” is a classy person.  Let me tell who “Mr. Classy” has hired to be his new “stand-in.”  His name is … Tim Smith.  Tim is a terrific person … and he is doing a fantastic job as Mr. Classy’s new “stand-in” so far.  Tim is married to my cousin, Sarah Smith.

“Mr. Classy” and his “stand-in” were able to wear the grey MK jackets with class on August 16, 2018. As you can see here, you can wear the grey MK jackets with either jeans or shorts.

An “ode” to “Mr. Classy” and his “stand-in”

Since late 2015, I have owned my grey Michael Kors jacket … and, just days after I bought it, I started calling myself “Mr. Classy” every time I would wear the jacket.  I was able to wear the jacket for a couple of hours this morning … and it’s actually too warm for me to wear the jacket this afternoon.  With that in mind, I’d like to write another “ode” for you guys.  This time, it’s about “Mr. Classy” and his “stand-in.”

“Mr. Classy” became somewhat popular in early 2016 … and, two years ago this month, “Mr. Classy” was able to hire a “stand-in” … and his name is Jonathan Reed.

I would just like to say that “Mr. Classy” and his “stand-in” are both able to wear the grey Michael Kors jackets with class.  Whenever “Mr. Classy” is unable to fulfill his duties, his “stand-in” will be able to fulfill Mr. Classy’s duties.

I have had a classy friend for one year! (June 18, 2017)
I would like to give praise to Mr. Classy’s “stand-in” today! (April 13, 2017)

Hopefully, “Mr. Classy” and his “stand-in” will be able to remain classy for at least another year or so.

Joseph’s 900th Blog Post

Today, I’m writing my 900th blog post … and, in more than 100 days or so, I will write my all-important 1,000th blog post on this blog.

Today, my 900th blog post will be about one of the classiest people that I have ever known … and his name is Derek Cryblskey.  Derek is one of the classiest friends that I have ever known.  He is a terrific friend and a terrific neighbor.  He also knows one of my store’s co-workers.

Recently, we were able to wear the camouflaged Yeti shirts with class.

Two Macho Dudes In One Night

On Wednesday evening, I was able to go to Bee’z Bistro and Pub, which is located in South Fayette.  I went there with one of my relatives for two hours … and I was able to see one of DJ Joe’s shows for the first time in almost two years.

I was also able to wear my purple Macho Man shirt to Bee’z while I was there on Wednesday evening.  I really like the shirt a lot.

On May 23, 2018, I went to Bee’z Bistro and Pub, which is located in South Fayette. I was able to wear my Macho Man shirt while I was there.

At around 6:30 that evening, I saw DJ Joe walking through the restaurant’s front door … and I noticed that he was wearing a purple shirt as well.  Just minutes later, I realized that he was also wearing a purple Macho Man shirt.  We sort of planned this.

IMG_20180523_195500331
On May 23, 2018, my friend, DJ Joe, who was also at Bee’z Bistro and Pub that evening, was also wearing the purple Macho Man shirt.

So, obviously, me and DJ Joe were wearing our purple Macho Man shirts while we were at Bee’z on Wednesday evening.  So, obviously, as today’s blog title states, there were “two macho dudes in one night.”

On May 23, 2018, me and DJ Joe wore our purple Macho Man shirts to Bee’z Bistro and Pub. We were both able to wear them with class. According to this blog’s title, there were “two macho dudes in one night.”

Before I left the restaurant on Wednesday evening, he was doing something called “Name That Tune.”  Now, I didn’t play it myself; however, I was able to see how the restaurant’s customers were able to play the game.  It looked like a fun game to watch.

I will do my best to see another one of DJ Joe’s shows in the future.  His shows are fun to watch!

Enjoy your day, my friends!

Joseph Has Owned His Grey Pens Shirt For Two Years Now!

Two years ago today, I purchased a grey Penguins shirt at Bridgeville T.J. Maxx.  The shirt was only eight dollars … and I was also able to talk one of my friends into buying one there as well.  The friend in question is Chuck Lazzini, who is also known as “Captain Cool.”  Since then, we have been able to wear them with class a few times.  This is actually my favorite Penguins shirt ever.

I will continue to wear this Penguins shirt many more times in the future, but I do have a new rule that I will implement, starting today.  I will wear this shirt during hockey season, but I will do my best not to wear it whenever the Penguins are playing their games.  I will wear my other Penguins shirts on game days.

This Neighbor Is Classy And Cool!

In the Fall of 2016, I became friends with a very classy neighbor … and the neighbor’s name is Mason Miller. When I introduced myself to him back then, we both wore our black Nike Pro Combat shirts outdoors … and we did that again in a selfie several days after I introduced myself to him for the first time.

In October of 2016, me and Mason Miller wore our black Nike Pro Combat Shirts outdoors. I had introduced myself to him a few days earlier. Mason is one of the classiest people that I have ever known.

I have had a “super” friend for 5 years!

Five years ago this week, I became friends with a “super” friend named Michael Spicer.  He is also one of my neighbors here on National Hill.  We have been neighbors for over five years.

Me and Michael both have our grey Superman shirts … and these shirts are the “de facto” shirts of our friendship.
