After the Honeymoon

After the kids,

Come the granny pants.

You know the ones.  Underwear as comfortable as the flannel nighties and Crocs you started to wear when "feeling sexy" finally slipped off your list of Life's Priorities.

Chuck saw "underwear" on my shopping list and humbly requested that I buy some panties that don't look like the ones from his mom's laundry basket.  Some that live up to the name - unmentionables.

So, I decided to honor his fantasy and bought a package of the cutest, cheap, plus-sized Hanes ladies' briefs (those high-cut, hip-hugging kind) that Wal-Mart carries.

A couple of days later, I pulled on a pair and, "Darn!"

"What's wrong?"

"I just tore a hole in my new underwear!"

Chuck sighed, "Well, I guess they just don't make 'em like they did in '1956."

Sigh.  Nope, I'm sorry, Dear.  They don't.

Chuck often chides me for spending too much time yakking it up on the Writer's Digest Writer's Forum.  I've tried to quit, honest, but I'm addicted to that place and the people.  If you are a writer or writer wanna-be, you owe it to your career to check it out.  Not only do we have a lot of fun, but you will learn A LOT about writing, publishing, grammar, and why you need to kill your adverbs.

Earlier this week one of the authors started a thread about using real-life people in fiction, which inspired me to parody the Miranda Warning for writers.  Maria Schneider, WD Editor, posted it here

And now, I'm going to bask for a while.

 

 

 

(Beep)ing Off

Last night, I popped in the PG rated movie Spaceballs thinking it would be a fun family movie. Good ‘ol Mel Brooks! Within 30 minutes the boys heard nearly every cuss word we’d been shielding them against since birth. I was mildly relieved that the first – and even second – sh*t blew past their heads without their acknowledgement. But we had to turn the movie off when the a*hole dialogue started; the part where there are six or so guys on the bridge and they each take turns calling someone they know an a*hole. Chuck told the boys that he would like to see the movie, but with the bad words beeped out.

That was critical back-story to understanding the day we had today.

Just a Warning Shot

Many important and life-altering discoveries have been made by accident. Think of Penicillin, Velcro and Post-It Notes, to name a few. Today I accidentally discovered how to kill or maim a person using 2 ordinary household items: a plastic 1-quart bottle of half-n-half and a single car key.

Remember from my original, introductory post that I aim to keep this website 'G' rated.  I also reserve the right to include 'adult' material.   That's the first disclaimer.

Further, since I've long since abandoned the notion of this being a site where a reader might find any thoughtful - much less, dignified - exegeses, blah, blah, blah... .  That's disclaimer number two.
