Would-be Game Changers

A lot of randomness takes place within the confines of my cranial cavity.  So not surprisingly, one day a visual of an evil dictator sitting stoically behind a rather imposing desk sprang to my mind.  I wondered “What do evil men do all day?”  Did Joseph Stalin have a secret unicorn stamp collection?  Did Kim Jong-il brunch with his mother?

And those thoughts led me to another: What factors might have somehow altered the lives of evil men in history?  So I began a list…

  1. Coloring breaks
  2. A Beagle puppy
  3. Building a Galaxy Explorer Space Cruiser out of Legos
  4. Watching America’s Funniest Home Videos hosted by Tom Bergeron (Sorry Bob Saget.  We can’t get past Full House.)
  5. Receiving candygrams on Valentines Day
  6. A free personal pan pizza from earning 5 stars on a Book-It Badge
  7. Quality time with monkey bars
  8. A friend like Teddy Ruxpin
  9. A piano tie
  10. A lollipop from the teller at the bank
  11. Coca-Cola
  12. A Winnie the Pooh nightlight
  13. An entire crate of silly putty
  14. Birthday Cake ice cream from Bruster’s
  15. Cassette tape of Bill Cosby’s stand-up routines
  16. Supervised access to sharp scissors and construction paper
  17. Removal of all products containing lead-based paint
  18. At least one birthday party at Chucky Cheese
  19. Less purple stuff and more Sunny D
  20. A funnel cake from the fair


What do you think is missing from the list?  And please, no Jesus Jukes.
