This past week has been a week with some really weird juju. I don’t know what is going on but something is really off balance. The weather? The holiday? Hmmm…hoping this week is back to normal.
I ate some really amazing cheesecake on Saturday. Mango, key lime pie. MMMMMMMMMMMM. So not part of my traditional food menu but oh well. I won’t tell if you won’t.
I took Tiny for a walk on Friday afternoon because it was a sunny. We got to the park and all of the sudden the sky turned black and it started to snow HARD. Crazy. Then the thunder and lightening started. I have never run home so fast! Last thing I needed to ruin a fun time in the snow was getting struck by lightning. J
A high school friend wrote a blog post about her financial state of affairs and it set of a firestorm from some random chick that saw her post. Firestorm is probably an understatement. This young girl attacked my friend in a very personal way going so far as to accuse her of being a negligent mother because she was unable to pay for her children’s college tuition. It got worse from there. What I don’t understand is what gives some total stranger the right to make a parenting judgment call about a blog post that was not about parenting. It was simply a post meant to show readers that they are not alone is their economic woes and that financial crisis can hit you at any age and any time no matter what your background. I tend to notice that strangers really like to get nasty in their comments on seemingly non-controversial posts. (Comments on controversial posts are a whole other beast!) Anyway, can’t we all play nice?
I took a quick, cold walk on Saturday morning and witnessed something that practically made me pee from laughing so hard. This guy is staggering and burping his way around his front yard, shirtless, in 30 degree weather. He has a toilet plunger in one hand and a 40 ounce beer in the other. It is 9:00am. He starts trying the open the trunk of his car by using the plunger on the keyhole. This is the conversation that had me dying…
Drunk guy: “If you didn’t take the keys with you a-hole then I’d get you out.”
Trunk: “Check your ass crack Vic.”
Drunk Guy: (Reaching into aforementioned ass crack) “Well I’ll be damned. How’d my keys end up there?”
Trunk: (Amid giggles) “I put em there.”
Trunk is opened, guy gets out, I exit stage right. Wouldn’t have believed it if I hadn’t seen it.
