Over the past week I have become a little fed up with news. And its not just because of the psychotic lunatics who are engaging in horrific crimes. These are bad, but at least they may qualify as news, as unpleasant as it maybe to hear about.
No, I am talking about the other news. The news about the waffle shortage or that eating movie popcorn is the equivelent to eating 3 quarter pounders with cheese? I mean we do need to know there might be a shortage of Eggo waffles this spring? Could this possible effect anyone's life so much as to make it newsworthy?
And the movie popcorn - really? Do I really need to know just how bad it is. Can't anyone go to the movies any more and enjoy a bag of popcorn without the quilt. Its not like people eat it everyday. For those who do - well they have bigger problems then eating movie popcorn every day - that being the fact they are actually AT the movies everyday.
Sweet Pea is home sick today with some kind of stomach bug. Apparently its the kind of stomach bug where you intermittently complain about how much your tummy hurts and than how hungry you are and proceed to eat toast, two eggs and a bowl of tomatoes all before 10 AM. If she hadn't been awake half the night with stomach pain, I'd really think I'd been had.
All I can say is I hope I don't catch it. It's bad enough to get the stomach bug but at least you can usually look on the bright side by acknowledging at least you'll loose a couple pounds in the process. With this bug, looks like you get the pain and the pounds. Who the hell needs that!
