Ahh, the day after Valentine’s Day.
Or as I like to call it, the day after people overcompensate with endless Facebook posts about how in love they are with their perfect significant other.
You’re in love? That’s fantastic. But like your Pure Romance purchase, the details are best kept to yourself.
-I’m not sure why this strikes me as funny, but my in-laws have dispatched me today to buy Pitbull’s latest CD. “It’ll make good party music,” according to my mother-in-law.
To do so, though, this means I’ll have to go to Target. What’s that, you say? You dare me to spend 3/4 of my paycheck there? Challenge accepted.
-Shameless self-promotion alert: producer Tasha Pinelo and I did a really interesting story that aired last night: boxing for couples . You’ve at least thought about taking a swing at your significant other in a controlled environment. OK, maybe a not-so-controlled environment. A class at UC offers couples a chance for fun and fitness – and a chance to keep their relationship off the ropes.
The real reason I liked this story so much was because it gave me a chance to use both boxing and love puns. There’s not much I like better than a good pun. Or a bad one, really.
-Let’s imagine we are taking a standardized test and this question comes up:
I’d totally guess false. Unless it was a Jetsons cartoon or a sci-fi movie.
-It seems like we talk about fires in and around college campuses way too often. Find out what our WCPO Digital team found out when it started digging into rentals around UC .
-On that same note, tonight on 9 On Your Side beginning at 5, Larry Smith shows you the right kind of smoke detector to have in your home – and why the wrong one could have terrible consequences.
From Today’s Show:
-Stop Checking!: The IRS is actually telling taxpayers to stop checking their website and app to check on the status of their refunds. Yes, we’re sorry, government. We apologize that we’re eager to get back the money we’re owed – the money we earned - in a timely manner. And we’re sorry that we’re bothering you.
The IRS says it only updates the site/app once a day, so we should only check once. Sounds like a very efficient process.
-First Full Squad Workout: It’s here. It’s officially here. Snowflakes, be darned. The first full squad workout for the Reds is today in Goodyear, Ariz. Sports director John Popovich starts filing his reports from the land of sun and sliders today.
