My 4 yo nephew told me today that he doesn't want a sibling because they would have to be a baby first. And he said he "doesn't like babies because they go potty in their pants and you can't even play dinosaurs with them". LOL. Smart kid, haha.

Where I grew up, they hosed us off after swimming in the local swimming hole because it was teeming with swimmers itch parasites. Yep. Gross, I know. But all the kids swam there. All the kids from my street would load up in the 1967 VW van and tool on down to the swimming hole. Then on the way home we'd stop and get an ice cream cone. Then once we got home, we'd line up in the back yard and get hosed off, full blast with the garden hose. Then the neighbor kids would hop on their banana-seat bikes and pedal on home.

I'm from a small town too. I'm embarrassed to admit this, but I thought Hispanic people were only on TV until I was probably 7 or 8. I didn't know that Mexico was a real place. I thought it was where Speedy Gonzalez lived because my town was predominantly white. I've also literally been "hosed off" instead of being given a bath. These places are real and they're WILD.

I've been sick with a nasty cold for days. Yesterday I was in the car with DD20 & I flipped the mirror down and said, "Wow, I look like hell." DD, driving, glances over at me and says, "Well, mom, you probably shouldn't wear purple eyeshadow when you're sick." .... "I'm not wearing purple eyeshadow."

I believe it. I know some people from podunk towns, and what's acceptable to them is NOT acceptable in normal society. The people who used to live next door were from a small town down South. One day they invited us for a BBQ. First of all, their backyard and deck looked like something out of Sanford & Son. Then, a little boy of about 3 pooped his pants. His mother yelled, "Well if you're gonna sh*t in your pants then you're going to sit in it!" See, she was busy drinking and on FB. When she finally went to clean him up, she just took all of his clothes off in full view of everyone, got the garden hose and sprayed the poop off of him - into the grass that other kids were running around in. Last time I went over there.

My daughter didn't get the job she was so excited about. After three interviews. And they didn't even give her a reason. I'm so sad for her.

In response to a confession. It's true, regardless of whether you believe it or not. Google Redkey, Indiana. It won't be so far fetched, then. But whatever, faceless internet stranger. Can't say I'm looking for your validation.

DD19 is now officially DD20, and has decided she wants a degree in computer science. She loves languages, and she's great at math & tech. She's very excited to learn coding as a new 'language'. I'm very proud of her. <3

The podunk-town-stick-of-bologna story was hilarious but honestly, doesn't ring true. Good story, though.

In response to a confession. Most cured meats are sold in stick form, as well as pre-sliced. Thought that was common knowledge.
