See that packages of cookies up there. Don't knock 'em 'till you try 'em. Those cookies USE to cost 99 cents a month ago, two weeks ago they cost 1.19, last week they cost 1.30. Holy Cow! These cookies went up 31 cents in a month. All the news channels keep talking about is food shortages, rising gas prices, and foreclosures. I'm actually starting to get scared. How am I going to feed 4 teenagers? (Yes, I'm well aware I didn't have to have this many kids) Are we going to go through another depression? That money that W. is sending us to stimulate the economy, should I cash the check and hide the money under my bed or should I spend it all on food and hoard it? Seriously, I need to stop watching the news. Are you guys worried, too?
I'm not sure why people hate soccer. Well I do, I think a lot of people think soccer is elitist. It's the idea of soccer moms and dads screaming at children about a sport no one really understands or plays, turns people off. There were comments about the cliques of parents. All of that I get, been there, done that. But....if your kids like it and are enjoying it or god forbid, good at it, what do you do? I hate schlepping my kids everyday to baseball and soccer practice and not eating dinner until 8 but I do it. I'm glad they are not spending all their time in front of a TV, computer (that's for me to do), or getting in trouble.
I think some people think of soccer like other people think of good food. Not worth their time. If you like soccer or good food you are a snob. That's not true.
AND...don't get me started on Top Chef!!! No polish sausage, but what the hell, stay on the show. Bite me!
I told you there was rambling and bad analogies. The dirty underwear line was to see if you were actually reading this post.
"Slay your fears. I will."
Thank you, Yoda. I'm gonna go bake some cookies.
