Dear Walmart Cashier, Thank you for your friendly greeting and personable manner.  I really thought you were the exception to the usual indifference I normally get at the register.  That is, until you scanned the Snickers bar that sat between the rye bread and shampoo and asked me if I wanted it.  Oh wow.  How …
I like rocks. I’ve always had a thing for them. I have a bunch of them in my jewelry box and other places around the house.  I’ve been accumulating them for years.  I have a pretty decent sized one in my glove box. My family refers to it as my “rape rock” meaning if someone …
  This morning my husband and I were talking about something (can't remember exactly what at the moment) and I was being my usual ornery self.  Our conversation went something like this:   Joel:  You're a pip. Me:  A pip?  As in a singer? Joel: You're a pistol? Me: What does that mean? Joel: You …

This video is a skit they did on a recent episode of Saturday Night Live. On its own it’s mildly funny but to my husband and I it is hysterical.  Give it a look. The reason it's so funny to us is because he swears I sneeze like that. I admit my sneezes are very loud but to …
My son has this tattoo on his forearm.    Why you ask? Why would he do that? That’s a question I’ve been wrestling with for over a year. The short story is he’s an idiot. The long and true story is that he wants to duplicate the tattoos his cousin Bobby had including this one.  I …
A few years ago I took a speech class that was required for my course of study.  One of our assignments was to get up and teach the class how to do something from start to finish.  I demonstrated how to make chocolate chip cookies. I even brought some finished cookies for my classmates to sample. …
This is my son Alex when he was a toddler. Look how cute he was.  Everyone in the family unanimously agrees that he was the cutest baby in history until my grandson came along. Here is a picture of him now.  I still think he’s adorable but I’m his mother so that shouldn't surprise anyone.  …
