It’s Friday! You know what that means, right? It’s time to examine the things I learned this week.
This week I learned…
…that I dont’ want to be the baboon in charge. Playing second fiddle to the big cheese is better for your health. All the benefits – none of the stress.
…that Jennifer Lopez should chalk this whole marriage thing up to experience and never, ever do it again. It’s quite obviously not working for her.
…that I don’t have to go far if I wish to have a long life expectancy. Of course, I’m pretty sure I’d much rather live somewhere else in my golden years. A beach house in the Caribbean, a villa in Rome, or Börsborn, Germany.
…that New York is making good on a promise – never forget.
…that pissing contests like these benefit no one – least of all the children who, I might remind these two governmental entities, are the future of our country.
…that I prefer my daughter’s summer gymnastics schedule. I don’t know where all the obnoxious, nitwit stage moms have gone for the summer but I hope they stay there. I can actually write in peace.
…that sometimes I should keep things to myself.
…that having short, stubby legs might not be such a bad thing after all.
…that I still don’t understand what “ranch casual” is really supposed to entail. Now they’ve thrown “summer ranch casual” at me. I am equally perplexed by this concept. Guess I’m going shopping. Again. This time, however, I draw the line at cowboy boots. Not happening.
…that the pre-dawn landing of the space shuttle Atlantis was a beautiful and emotional thing. The end of a wonderous era. I’m glad I watched.
