If you’re new around here, confessions are a time for us to all unburden ourselves of the silliness we’re feeling at the moment.
I share dumb things, then you share dumb things, and we all have a better day because of it. Let’s get started!
A few months ago, Bennett came home from school to tell me he had lunch in Mrs. T’s classroom. Mrs. T is our school counselor.
Me: Oh, how was that?
Me: Mrs. T is there for kids who are having big feelings. Are you having big feelings? It’s ok if you are. Want to talk about it?
Bennett: (looks at me like I’m an idiot), um, she has a bunny and I get to play and snuggle with the bunny during lunch.
Turns out one of Bennett’s friends at lunch HAD been having big feelings a few weeks before. So, Mrs. T brought him into her room and told him he could invite two friends.
When my little con artist realized there was a bunny in there, he somehow finagled it into they got to have lunch in there every Thursday. He’s the animal-motivated elementary version of the Tinder Swindler.
Jack’s soccer team and Bennett’s baseball team all use an app called Sports Engine. It allows the team to put in the games and practices, for us to RSVP, and for a team group chat.
Overall it’s fine, despite being VERY slow lately. But it is free, so I can’t complain too much.
In the group chat you can “like” a comment. Most of us do this to respond to a coach’s note about which uniform to bring, that practice is starting a few minutes late, etc. Just an “ok, cool, acknowledged”.
But, the thing I HATE is that the option says “like” and then it puts a heart next to the comment. If you give me the option to like something, give it a thumbs up. The heart looks creepy in most instances.
I truly don’t understand being afraid of appliances. I’m part of many Facebook groups for air fryers and Instant Pots. This is a work thing because we can share our recipes, and that brings us traffic.
But almost daily, a new member will join and post “I’ve had my air fryer for 3 months now but it’s still in the box. I’m too scared to use it”. Whhhhhhhhat?
I’m not making fun of anyone for these fears, but it’s just an appliance. The Instant Pot is not the pressure cookers of the 1920s that had issues. An air fryer is essentially a countertop convection oven. Are you scared of the oven?
I always respond “choose something small and cheap to start with. You can do this! I believe in you so hard”.
Jack’s orthodontist sends an obnoxious amount of confirmation emails, texts, and calls. It’s basically the teeth version of WUPHF.com from The Office. If you know, you know.
Time is money and I understand that people forget about appointments and therefore screw up the schedule of the office. But Jack has been a client for three years now and not only has he not even missed an appointment, but he’s also 15 minutes early.
Add me to a special VIP list for people who always show up and don’t need to be hounded. Please and thank you.
