I’m Old

It’s a sad day when you have to turn to the Internet to figure out the rules for playing checkers.

More Junior Stories

My son is apparently the greatest source of amusement my sister has in her life. Quite recently she had to walk away from us because she was laughing so hard she had to go to the bathroom. That was at the mall, where the three kids were picking out clothes for their new stuffed pals […]

Another Ice Cream Truck

My Matchbox/Hotwheels ice cream truck collection just doubled in size…to 2. You’re probably saying to yourself, “Hey, why didn’t I know that Jody had an ice cream truck collection?” and the answer would be “because I never mentioned it.” I don’t mention it because I don’t want the world inundating me with ice cream truck-related […]

Now We Are Six

Me: So you’ve just given up. You’re never going to even try to wipe you’re own butt? When you are forty, I’ll be seventy-three. You’re not going to want that. Him: When I’m a grown-up, like a grandpa, there won’t be anyone to wipe my bum. Me: No. Him: So I’ll have to sit on […]

I’ve been working since June without a vacation, and I’m starting to feel it. I’d insert a *sigh* here but […]

Dropping Like a Stone

Boy, a twenty-five degree temperature drop. Just what I like on a weekend. I’m wearing three layers today; for some reason I just can’t get warm. I’d say it was my thyroid going out of whack but I just had my bloodwork done and my meds adjusted a couple of weeks ago. Granted, my Endo, […]

Freakish Snack Product Review

Now how could I ignore the bag in the vending machine that said “T.G.I. Friday’s Mozzarella Snack Sticks (Original Flavor?) I mean, the picture implies cheese, and I’m wondering what they did to get cheese in the bag. Gah. God bless the artificial flavor industry, but this is just too odd for words. They’re like […]
