As I was walking into the local Five Below store and a little dog was walking around (yes again, first the grocery store, now Five Below) wearing doggie UGGS I was just confused. It made me starting thinking about all the things around me that I just don't get. So what better way to start my day then blogging about them all (or at least as many as I can before it is off to Lunch Lady Land).
1) Dogs in Uggs. Have you ever seen a dog wearing these things. Honestly they are so stupid looking. And the poor dogs always look like they are struggling to walk. Don't their owners see that. Do they enjoying torturing their pet just because they think they look "cute"? I am not a fan of the sweaters either, mostly because dogs are born with a natural defense against the cold, it is called fur, but then again society has bred such wimpy little critters that I think we have ruined that natural defense in some of them so I will excuse the sweaters.
2) Food Allergies. When I was a kid (I know it was like a million years ago) nobody had food allergies. There was one kid in my class in 6th grade that was allergic to bee stings and had to leave class if a bee flew in the window but that was it. Now it seems like every class in school has a kid with an allergy. Where did they come from? Did allergies just start appearing out of thin air? I had a woman come into the restaurant once and ask for a water with lime and said to make sure it was lime and not lemon, because she was allergic to lemon. Really? They are almost the same damn fruit, just different colors. I know another mother who was allergic to peanuts so she just assumed that her kids were too and didn't bother to get them tested. Now these poor kids miss out on the joys of peanut butter and jelly because their mom has and allergy. I do feel bad for these kids however, it must suck to have to sit at a separate table at lunch with all the other allergy kids. Plus, I know my son is not particularly fond of one kid because when he was in the same class as him in Kindergarten nobody was allowed to bring in treat for birthdays because of this one boys allergy. It is 3 years later and my son still talks about that. I am just thankful my kids can, and do eat anything.
3) Political Ads. It seems like now that the Iowa caucus is over the politicians have turned their attention on the rest of the world. I wish they would go back to Iowa. Every other commercial last night was of a candidate who is running for President. It made watching Revenge last night a bit less enjoyable. Seriously Mitt, don't be wasting your money here in Massachusetts, we already know your game and now you are just pissing us off even more. Huntsman, you got about 3 votes in Iowa, so just go away you are not going to win. Perry, you are a whack job and your commercials showcase that, not really helping you. Santorum, until 4 days ago nobody had ever heard of you, I was actually looking forward to researching you as a possibility, well, then I saw you talk and all possibility is gone. Newt, I got nothing, moving on. Thank you Bachman for dropping out. Herman Cain, please come back, I want to get back on the Cain train. The more I see these annoying ads the better Obama is looking. Oh no did I say that? Not me, I am a conservative. Just stop all the ads people and let me enjoy my trash TV.
Ok, that took much longer than I thought and I now I have to cook for the kiddies. I have so many more to get through, maybe later, maybe tomorrow. Feel free to send me any ideas you have for things you just don't get because chances are I probably don't get it either.
