Every day while I’m trying to figure out what to blog, I have on recorded CSI, or the local news. Lately, I find myself wanting to yell at the TV. Today, you guys will get to hear my responses to some of the stories I’ve seen recently.
Cough Syrup—The New Drug: I’m hardly one to poke fun at teen drug use, but come on, people. New? My mother has reported people drinking cough syrup to get drunk when she was a teenager. That would make this new craze approximately thirty-five years old. People were doing this when I was a teenager. Let me tell you, drinking cough syrup while wearing jeans and tennis shoes, and sitting on somebody’s ratty couch while their parents were out was never my idea of a good time. Want to turn me on to addictive substances? Put it in a pretty glass, let me wear a great dress, and give it a cool name like “Tom Collins.” Nyquil? No thank-you.
Local Politician Pays Prostitute in City Services: At first, I was intrigued. I mean, the cost of natural resources is pretty high. Has it come to this? People whoring themselves out, so they can get some air conditioning? Or maybe this lady was too lazy to cut her grass and Public works came over and took care of it. Or maybe she just did some “favors” to get a ticket taken away. But no, this lady was paid with a WATER BILL. What in the name of the Lord was she thinking? My last water bill was $17.25. You did it with a stranger for the equivalent of twenty bucks. I’m sorry, but that’s just straight0-up lazy. You could probably pan-handle for that kind of cash.
Well, I guess you can tell people in Arkansas don’t have a lot to do. Here is our version of the news. Wouldn’t you want to scream at the TV too?
Please enjoy the rest of your regularly scheduled programming🙂
PS: Tomorrow I’m letting the kids dunk me at the school fair. Should be interesting. Mr.K has agreed to bring his camera. I’ll put up the pics over the weekend if possible.
