'Cause I Said So … More Snobby Mommy Musings

My daughter calls me Snobby Mommy.

There are times I can’t blame her.  I seem to let my perfectionist ways dominate my thinking.

And that ain’t right.  Because nobody is perfect.

Not even Snobby Mommy.

There was the time I was reluctant to shop at Aldi.  Boy, did I do a 180 perspective change.

In fact, my haughty ways had me avoiding junkyards at all costs.  I learned my lesson on that one.

See what I did there?  I’ve provided links to older, relevant posts.  You’re welcome.  But please keep reading, because there’s more I have to say.


I insist you’d be Snobby yourself if you came across some of the silly, strange, scary events that pass before my eyes.  Such, as:






Just the other day I received an email from a site that offers reduced-rate concert tickets.  This one read:

“Maria Callas in Concert:  The Hologram Tour” 

WHAT?  I read more to be certain…

Join us for a once-in-a-lifetime concert experience that brings together state-of-the-art 3D hologram technology, the greatest of Maria Callas’s digitally remastered recordings, and the thrilling live sound of the Lyric Opera Orchestra

Can this be right?  To be blunt, I thought this great soprano was dead.

So I’m basically paying lots of moola to watch a poltergeist move across the stage?

Er, no thank you.  Next, please.


It’s Fall, Y’all.

Fall season is approaching.  I love it as much as the next chick.  Bring on the pumpkins, fall colors and cinnamon scents.

I must remind others, however:  We do not use the phrase “Y’all” in Chicago.  It’s just not done.

Recently I heard that expression everywhere while visiting Louisville, KY.  It was charming.  Everywhere I went, people were so friendly.

How y’all doin’?” folks asked me, with an unhurried, almost romantic drawl.

Fine, thank you,” I replied in my robotic/nasal tone.

But that’s where it ends.  So, please, if you live north of Bourbonnais, IL, do not put up cute plaques or buy door mats that read:



Instead, go get yo’self a Chicago flag and hang dat up.
