Ferguson Decision: The Conversation Every Parent Needs To Have With Their Kids

Ferguson Decision: The Conversation Every Parent Needs To Have With Their Kids
I watched and listened as Bob McCulloch delivered the Grand Jury decision last night. The fifteen-year-old was sitting in the next room doing his homework while I watched Dancing With The Stars.  When ABC cut in with the ominous music, the kid joined me on the couch. Our family is part of the minority-we watch... Read more »

Keeping Up With These Kardashians is Like Literally Exhausting

Keeping Up With These Kardashians is Like Literally Exhausting
I’m not really sure why I find these clowns entertaining.  Suffice it to say I’ve already invested nine seasons of my time – why stop now? And, as I suspected, tonight’s episode did not disappoint.  Bible. It started out on a trampoline… Khloe clearly got the memo: Wear backyard friendly clothes for trampoline scene.  Kim...

National Restaurant Association Kicks Mom and Infant To The Curb
ABC 7 provided quite a tease prior to the ten o’clock broadcast last night. It went somewhere along the lines of this ~ A woman gets kicked out of Restaurant Trade Show at The McCormick Place–you’ll never guess why. The Chicago Tribune posted the breaking news regarding Saturday’s happenings. There is nothing shocking to me... Read more »

Honey Boo Boo:  That Baby Has Three Flippin' Thumbs?!?
Have you caught the Honey Boo Boo Show? Until yesterday, I was ashamed proud to admit that no, I had not. I caught the tail end of the marathon yesterday.  I tuned in toward the end of the episode where Chickadee birthed her baby.  Oh, My.  And, then the Halloween special.  TRICK.OR.TREAT.TO.ME. Here are some of my random... Read more »

Christmas RSVPs: A Menagerie of Merry Morons Who Need Not Reply

Leftover Louie ~ ah, Leftover Louie is such a stroke.  Last Christmas Louie and his family signed up to bring a dozen cupcakes, one pumpkin pie, a 9x13 pan of green bean casserole, and a stick of butter.  As soon as the last person cleared the dessert buffet line, Louie and his brought-from-home box of ziplocks sprung into action.  You watched in horror as Louie bagged up every last crumb of whatever his family contributed to the meal (including the eighth-a-stick of leftover butter) and ran like lightning to secure them in the trunk of his car for safe keeping.  So, it came as no surprise this past Thanksgiving when you were asked to contribute five pounds of mashed potatoes to the family feast over at Louie's place.  As you were getting ready to leave, Louie handed you a bag heavy enough to make you think you had the makings for a pretty sweet turkey sandwich with all the trimmings to take back to your crib.  And, sure enough...later that evening...after your turkey-induced slumber...as your mouth watered thinking about the turkey goodness, you made your way to the fridge and opened the bag.  And then as you took the all too familiar looking container out, you slammed it on the counter as you shouted, "THAT MOTH-ER FUCK-ER".  THAT motherfucker indeed.  Leftover Louie sent you home with the remaining four pounds of your mashed potato offering.  It could be worse.  You could be your sister opening a half gallon of gravy and a ziploc bag containing exactly two-and-a-half croissants right about now.
The holidays are here along with all the weirdos that seem to participate.  Just when you think the freak flags that fly at your annual family gathering are exclusive to your gene pool…think again.  The names and faces may be different, but don’t fool yourself.  Their stories and the freakiness that follows are all the same.  ...

Kids' Sports: When Everyone Wins Backfires

Kids' Sports: When Everyone Wins Backfires
I had a feeling there was more in the “fine print” located at the bottom of the kids’ birth certificates. More than feeding the heathens, dropping serious cash down on kicks they would outgrow long before the season was over, and of course maintaining a health insurance policy well into their twenties. Somewhere in the... Read more »
