Lost Cat

We get a lot of the posters in our neighborhood. "LOST CAT" with a big picture of the cat. I always wonder if the cat comes by and sees his own picture on the lightpost.
Or if it's like for other stray/lost cats.

Six things I learned on my summer vacation.

1. PMS + 6 year old son + Statue of Liberty = Not a grand day out in NYC.
2. Disneyland has nothing on Times Square.
3. Pinwheel cookies that have spent 20 minutes in the freezer are better than Pinwheel cookies that have spent 8 seconds in the microwave.
4. People start drinking early at Holiday Inn on a Saturday.
5. Delaware has a store called “Ham Radio Supercenter” right next to a store called “Gun Outlet.” They also have many stores called "Affordable Divorce." I don't know whether the three are related.
6. In a pinch, $6 wine from 7-11 will do.
7. My husband comes by it honestly.

I always feel sad and a little bit guilty when I crack open an egg and find two yolks.

And now a word from our readers!

JD from Philly writes:
Did you ever notice how NO ONE ever drinks tomato juice? You never see it at anyone's house. You’re never offered it as a drink. Except on an airplane. And I swear at least 3 people in surrounding rows will order tomato juice???????

Good point, JD. I'm no expert, but I'm guessing each of those imbibers has a different motivation. Perhaps Passenger #1 has calculated the cost of tomato juice vs. the cost of Dr. Pepper and, even though he doesn't like tomato juice, is ordering it just to squeeze every last penny out of the airline. Passenger #2 has pondered the staining quality of tomato juice added to the turbulence factor of air travel and ordered the red concoction to support her therapist's postulation that she hates herself. Passenger #3 may be simply offering evidence to God that if he lets this plane land safely she will start making healthier decisions about her life. But I’m no expert and it is quite an interesting observation. Thanks for writing!

I like to imagine doormen and bellhops in their underwear.

It's not a sexual thing or a fear of public speaking thing. I just like to think about who this person was just before he put on a costume picked out by someone else.

Am I right in assuming we all secretly hate parades?

Shouldn't we all just fess up and do away with them or are we going to keep dragging our kids out and making fakers out of the next generation, as well?
(Love a parade? Please rebut.)
