Friday posts are going to be random. Just warning you.
Thoughts on grammar: How did we ever get to the point where people use this phrase: ‘a whole nother‘? Like, ‘I was talking about brussel sprouts, but she heard a whole nother conversation.’ I’ve probably used this phrase. But categorically, I’m against breaking words apart and tossing adjectives in the middle. I’m just sayin’.
Beloved snacks: I absolutely love vanilla yogurt and peanut butter.
The inner voice, on meal planning:
The Girl (10 years old), walking away from our pantry: “I’m hungry… for something healthy” (a very pointed comment aimed at the need for a grocery run).
My inner voice: “Healthy? Wha??? Isn’t that a ‘100 calorie’ snack pack you’re holding? Sheesh.”
Sunscreen convictions: after experimenting a bit this summer, I’ve arrived at these decisions: (a) name brands are worth it, and (b) spray-on isn’t.
The inner voice, on things that need to stay ‘inner’: This week, a new word keeps popping in my head in response to various situations. craptastic. As in ‘isn’t that just craaaAAP-TAS-tic’. Horrible. Just horrible.
