Time for more stuff that just doesn’t fit into any other post… enjoy
Last night, the kids made up a new game. They were playing outside and I could hear them yelling things to a ‘Roger’. Dan was grilling some chicken out there and as he came back in, the kids came to the door and were yelling “Roger, come back here” and “Roger, where are you going?”. I asked Dan who they were talking to and it became obvious that they were calling Dan Roger. It seemed really weird to me since I have no idea where they heard the name Roger and why they randomly decided to call their dad that is beyond me. But for about 15min, he was Roger and they thought they were hilarious with their new game. Even Dan & I had to laugh.
I just caught the new New Kids on the Block video and it brought so much pain to me, I don’t even know if I can describe it in words. I mean, can you really call yourselves the New Kids on the Block if you are neither new, kids or live on the block? How does that work? I barely survived their first go around and was probably the only tween in America that despised them then but really? Do you people that liked them back then really think it’s ok for their sorry selves to be dancing around in a McCheezy video as if they are hot or relevant? While the song is hardly tolerable to my ears, my eyes have cursed me for watching the atrocity. I’m scared that if I view it one more time, they’ll punish me forever by making me blind.
What’s in a name
It’s been on my mind and growing inside me until I finally admitted it to Dan that I hate Scout’s name. I love our other pet’s names. They seem to flow well and feel like their name. Like it en capsules their personality just by saying their name. But not Scouts. Originally, we had a pet rabbit and that name fit her perfectly. I think it was panic that led us to naming our puppy Scout. The days kept going by and we didn’t have a name. At some point you just have to name them and we settled on Scout. His non-fitting name probably plays a giant role in his emotional problems. I’m convinced if we had only figured out his real name, he’d be a better pup. But what can you do? Can you change a dog’s name after he’s had it for over a year? I wish I could have a do over.
The agony of defeat
The Target brand of mustard is the devil. While it tastes delicious and very mustard like, it is impossible to get out of it squeeze bottle after about the 5th or 6th use. I usually end up either A) hurting my hand, B) getting so mad at it that I start talking to the stupid container or C) give up. My recommendation is to spring for a more expensive brand if you truly enjoy mustard and don’t want to taint your hot dog with the taste of defeat.
