Hello, friends! Well, it’s been an interesting week. Let's sit down for a chat and I'll share a few things that I've learned so far...
- Your child will get sick and the school office will call right as you are participating in a presentation with a group of executives. You will leave early, pick up your child and see that he’s covered in a rash from head-to-toe. The child’s doctor will be stumped with this condition and ultimately rule it as a virus. Then, your Kroger pharmacy won’t have the prescribed medicine, so you travel to a second pharmacy to see if they have the medicine. And it just so happens to be senior citizen day at the grocery store where the pharmacy is based. You will have a breakdown in the parking lot.
- We always buy too much damn Halloween candy.
- Iron-on badges for Brownie uniforms are a farce. They never work and at the last minute, you’re forced to pull out a needle and thread to sew the patch on. Hey, Girl Scouts, ever considered Velcro? Hello??
- If you give people free stuff, they will support you. And those getting the free stuff will see this as a very good thing. But what they haven’t learned, that I have, is that they’ll experience no upward mobility through this practice. But, that’s okay because they're getting free stuff. Motivation is not the goal here; dependence is.
And that's all you'll hear from me on that particular topic. Moving on.
