Half Past Kissin' Time, as well as others, in this endeavor. If you're feeling in a fragmented mood, check them out here.
** I read somewhere this week that when we are born, our eyes are the size they will be for our whole lives. It's one of the reasons babies are so cute, because their eyes are larger in proportion to the rest of them.
I guess the person who invented Precious Moments already figured this out.
** I also learned that, even though our eyes don't grow, our ears and noses never STOP growing. I find this frightening. I wish I had know this years ago; I would have measured my nose then, so I could keep track.
** Why do some places with public bathroom facilities insist on stocking them with the cheapest, thinnest, most worthless toilet paper? Colleges. chain restaurants and highway rest stops are particularly guilty, in my experience. Note to those proprietors: You may pay half as much for each roll of inadequacy, but I use FIVE TIMES AS MUCH tissue. Even if I don't need to.
** I was shopping at the local dollar store the other day, picking up some temporary props for the play, and noticed something interesting at the checkout. They sell home pregnancy tests. Take a moment and absorb this. They sell home pregnancy tests. For a dollar. Now, I'm the first person to try to save a few bucks whenever possible, but do we really want to be trusting the results of a home pregnancy test we picked up at the dollar store? However, if you're okay with it, you can shop online and buy a case of 72 for the bargain price of - you guessed it - $72.
** I wonder who designed lacrosse padding. I wonder this because the shoulder/chest padding (for boys, anyway) covers their shoulders and about one-third of the top of their chests. I mean, it's not like, when your child has the ball in his stick and is running at top speed down the field, that the other team is indescriminately whacking at your child, trying to get him to drop the ball or anything. Really, what are the chances that some of those hits will land somewhere other than the miniscule part of him that is covered with padding? I'm sure there are no vital organs in those areas. I'm just grateful they have to wear a cup. I want grandchildren some day.
