Five Things I’ll NEVER Do Again…Probably
We took the kids to Sam’s Club for a free sample extravaganza this month. It was miserable. People were sample-hungry scavengers. And, I am convinced they train the sample giver to move at an “I can’t even believe you’re moving that slow” pace. I will no longer actively seek samples.
When I was in high school my dad randomly declared that he would NEVER eat another french fry again. I didn’t believe it, and told him I would NEVER eat another fry again. He has, and I have not. It’s been 20 years! Though this summer I randomly popped a McDonald’s fry into my mouth without thinking, but I spit it out.
Sticking with my food theme, someone told me apples were good for your teeth, so I’ve been letting my kids chomp away, even after they’ve brushed their teeth at bedtime. I just learned, they are NOT! Drats! I’m not sure why this didn’t occur to me before. We’re stopping our bedtime trend.
In junior high I became obsessed with MTV and took up swearing around my friends. (My parents had no idea.) I think I had a gift for it. But alas, I gave it up when I started high school, never to return. Though I need to come up with some new words. Sometimes “drats!” just doesn’t cut it.
I used to do this a lot before I had kids. Now I don’t have a single soapbox to stand on. Though I do judge judgmental moms on their judging. Hmm. I guess that means I still judge.
