Actual Conversations In My House Part 5

by Jodifur on April 13, 2014

Michael: Mom, why do I have to do the 4 questions EVERY PASSOVER?

Me: Because you are the youngest.  It is is the rule.  Before you came I had to do them.

Michael: But I hate it.  I hate being the center of attention.  Everyone looks at me.

Me:  I’m sorry Michael.  I can help you if you want.

Michael: No, it’s okay, I’m also, the cutest.


One day, Michael and I were walking to school and it started to lightly drizzle.  I complained about what this weather would do to my hair.

Michael: You care about YOUR HAIR?  What are you?  Some kind of fashion model?

Me: No, I’m not a fashion model.  But I do care about my hair, deeply.  I have a whole love hate relationship with my hair.  It goes back years.

Michael: I will never understand girls.  All they care about is their hair and saving baby ponies.

Me: Michael, I care about a lot more than my hair and saving baby ponies.  I have a big important job where I do big important things and I talk to big important people.  I need my hair to look good when I do these things.

Michael: You also care about shoes.

Me: True.

The minute I dropped Michael off I called Doug and told him to please have a conversation with his son about “the things women care about that do not include their hair and saving baby ponies.”

Good vs. Bad Customer Service

April 7, 2014

I had a terrible customer service experience today.  They kind that makes me want to write a blog post calling out the company and tell you point by point what happened.  But I won’t. Because I’m a grown up and worried about being sued.  No, that’s not it, because blog posts like that don’t help […]

In Case You Forgot Just How Bad My Taste In Television Was

March 31, 2014

When we cut cable everyone told me I would watch LESS TV.  That has not happened.  What has happened is I watch TV differently.  I watch more shows live.  I make sure I catch Scandal, and Grey’s, and I missed the HUGE BIG THING that happened on the Good Wife and it was spoiled for […]

The Problem with “Helicopter Parent”

March 26, 2014

Old School Blogging

March 19, 2014

I found this through Jean.  Link up is here. I love the idea behind this.  Remember back in the old days when we blogged up hill in the snow both ways and we answered random questions and memes?  Also, I have nothing to blog about. What is the last thing you watched on TV?  I’m […]
