I know, my name is not familiar nor easy to remember.  I get that. That being said… It’s spelled phonetically.  Is it really that hard to say?  It’s three friggin syllables.  My name is Nabeha.  Say it with me…                                                       Nuh-bee-huh.  Not so tough, right?  You would be surprised at the number and frequency of mispronunciations...

I have an extreme amount of respect for our justice system and what it represents, though I have yet to fully grasp what specifically determines guilt in accordance with our laws. That being said..

Bitch Slap vs Regular Slap
While at the grocery store, my daughter accidentally (key word**accidentally**) pushed our cart into the backside of another shopper.  I apologized immediately, as did my daughter and I was surprised that she wasn’t so forgiving.   Her only response was an eye roll and a snide comment.  That being said… Dear Mean Shopping Cart Lady…I understand that it was probably...
