"Ha! I can only imagine what your mom would do (or not do) if she met me at at my petite stature of 4'11"! That's funny."

Want To Annoy Your Teen? Here's How:

Though I love my children dearly (even my two teenagers), their condescending tone can really get under my skin.  It’s like they think I’m an idiot, and they clearly find me embarrassing.  I don’t get it.  It’s not like I’m showing up at school in dirty sweatpants or revealing short skirts and high heels.  I’ve seen the other moms - I know there are many out there who are more embarrassing than me.  (Really.) That’s why my kids’ attitude bothers me so much.  So lately I’ve begun to retaliate. …See More

Things Left Behind: Chopper Our New One-Eyed Mutt

About seven years ago my in-laws moved into a small apartment and began purging unnecessary items from their lives.  Besides getting rid of needless junk, they sorted sentimental keepsakes from the past and then divided them up between their sons.  At the time we weren’t too happy about it.  It seemed morbid, and what’s worse, we were suddenly stuck with boxes of mementos from my husband’s childhood, and had nowhere to store them either.But after my in-laws’ deaths this past summer, we realized…See More

MY MOM: THE HEIGHTIST

I think if we're really being honest, most of us harbor some form of prejudice.  I’m not saying deep down were all hate-mongering racists, but I think we tend to be suspicious of people who are different.  I, for example, am wary of the perfectly done-up mom who styles her hair and applies makeup before dropping her kids off at school at 8:00 o’clock in the morning.  Overachievers like these are surely of a different breed.I’m equally leery of the earthy granola types with their long flowing…See More

The New Bizarre Online Security Questions

Blatant rip off of Jerry Seinfeld here, but what is the deal with those online security questions lately?They used to be so easy, so straightforward, like what’s your mother’s maiden name, high school mascot, or favorite pie?But now these questions have gotten strange.   Either the website designers are trying hard to foil the hackers or, as I suspect, they’re just really, really bored.  What else could account for these bizarre questions?
