This Week's Hairbrained Musings (12)

Another week of moments and musings.




*Public restrooms are full of learning opportunities, and most of them are lessons you'd rather not learn in a public restroom.  (Tampons, anyone? Or floor tp? *gag*)

*People who tip their hairstylists get way better haircuts than those who don't.

*If your kid says "Nice outfit, Mom", you should probably rethink what you're wearing.  Especially if your kid dresses like my kids!

*A lasso of truth sure would be nice! I'd like one for my birthday, please.  It would go well with my mental theme song.

*Door-to-door salespeople are some of the most annoying people on the face of the Earth!  They're like a chihuahua that doesn't like you-- the one you try to shoo it away politely, and in return it tries to bite you or pee on your leg.

*Ikea should issue leashes or tracking devices for your kids as you enter, and wine or valium for the parents as they leave.  Sensory overload for EVERYONE!  And I have never seen as many brain-dead bored men in one place, ever!

*It is STILL a bad idea to let my kids stay up 2 hours past their bedtime.  Big surprise, I'm sure.

*When your child hands you something crunchy wrapped in a tissue, DO NOT LOOK INSIDE!  You will almost always regret it.

*Easy Bake Oven-- making baked goods that taste like ass since 1963!  You'd think after 40 years, something would have gotten better, but I attended Birdie's tea party this weekend and confirmed that this is not the case.

Until next time...

  1. Never look!!! There are just some things you are better off not knowing about. Easy bake ovens are parents worst nightmare... You enviably will have to pack up the kids and drive to the real store to get real cake because it tastes like the brownies in a tv dinner... Yuuuuck

    1. Easy Bake is disgusting no matter what you do-- but my daughter never seems to notice! I end up trying to swallow it whole, and then raiding the fridge for something to erase the taste in my mouth. *shivering in disgust just thinking about it*

  5. Wait, your kids have a bedtime??? How do you enforce that???? 14 & 12 start school on Wednesday and I'm lucky if I can get them into their rooms by 10. Tonight the cell phones get turned in to me at 9:30, that'll be one less distraction.

    Great musings.

    Pubic restrooms **shivers.....
