Friday Jumbles

--It is unwise to give a fifteen-year-old a steroid medication and then assume you can live peacefully under the same roof with the kid. Send them away for the duration of the prescription.

--It is also unwise to let a steroid-filled teenager drive your car, or any car for that matter.

--If you shoot water up your Yorkie's nose while bathing him, he will make a noise something like Arnold the pig from Green Acres for the rest of the day. I am unclear as to why.

--It is questionable judgment for a parent to leave two teenage boys alone in the Halloween costume department of a store with a digital camera.

--What is it with my youngest son's "Garden-of-Eden-I-hate-to -wear-clothes" fixation?? Are all third-born children exhibitionists?

--I saw a jacket in the teenage boys clothing dept. of a store that had a faded argyle pattern with a skull over it. WHAT???? Is that some sort of retro-preppy-emo-death thing?? I can only assume that I am now an old person.

--In an effort to economize and trim the grocery bill, I have been trying cheaper brands of toilet paper. I would like to point out that the stressful events listed above would have been handled in a more graceful fashion if the lady of the house had her beloved CHARMIN instead of the John Wayne toilet paper that is rough and tough and won't take any crap off anyone!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

--If my blatant and sometimes crass opinions are offensive to you then you should probably avoid my blog on Fridays as this is when I am most likely to let it all hang out. I like to think of it as a literary "dress-down" Friday thing.

--Today is "Talk Like A Pirate Day". (I know you don't believe me...go Google it and see) AARRRRGH! Have a happy weekend, Matey!

There are just some things in life that fall into the "necessities" category--cut the grocery bill somewhere else but keep the Charmin!

I am a Charmin girl through and through! I think I tried to buy a cheaper brand one time and was miserable. Some things are just worth the extra couple bucks!

I was on steroid medications once for about 2 weeks. I nearly got into a brawl with a lady I'd never met before. That incident has changed my view of mood altering medications altogether.

In regards to toilet paper, I'm in agreement with the others. If you must save money, buy cheap canned vegetables or something. You just can't skimp on some things. I would also throw hairspray, spaghetti sauce and olives into this category.

can I just say that some second-born children are exhibitionists as well, and leave it at that?
