In honor of Father’s Day, here’s an oldie but goodie from a few years ago. Enjoy!
Did I ever tell you about the time when I was taken to the men’s restroom at El Chcio’s because a waiter thought I was a little boy?
Not one of my finer moments.
If memory serves me correctly, I was around six-years-old rocking a fresh Dorthy Hammil haircut. I’m sure my parents were trying to implore some sort of independent will in their young first grader by suggesting I approach said waiter to direct me to the nearest water closet. I knew something was up when I saw the urinals on the wall. I used the facility, washed my hands, politely nodded to the baffled man entering upon my exit and returned to my nachos.
In light of recent events in Charleston, I didn’t feel like posting a funny entry. Then I looked at my monthly schedule and saw that I had already written today’s post. I humbly thanked the Lord, knowing the He had planned this entry long before last night’s tragic act. I hope it makes you stop and think.
A few weeks ago, I was extremely irritated with someone. Let the record show that I had every right to feel discarded and disrespected. That gross feeling of “SERIOUSLY RUDE PERSON?” consumed me.
The anxiousness continued to grow as the days passed. I’m pretty much the opposite of confrontational. You can imagine the delightful ulcer I developed, wondering when this feeling was going to go away.
Many of you probably know Melanie Shankle of the blog Big Mama. A jillion of you have purchased her new book Nobody’s Cuter Than You. When I decided to review the book for Entertainment Weekly, it didn’t occur to me until the piece was finished that I needed a picture of her book cover to accompany the post.
Fun tip: It’s illegal to jank pictures off the internet without permission. In today’s age of social media, we do this ALL the time. It’s frowned upon, but nobody is going to jail for it. Sure you may have to pay several hundred dollars to Getty Images, but it’s worth it to have tons of Instagram hits on that one pic you posted celebrating Ryan Gosling’s birthday, right?
What could possibly go wrong?
