Things I found out recently

- My dad stole a route 69 sign when he was in college

- I really loathe the sound of acrylic nails being tapped on a table. Like it makes me homicidal.

- When presented with cookout food, I will just keep eating and eating until I either fall asleep or someone takes the food away from me.

- I am an amazing golfer. Okay this one's not really true, I just wanted to find a way to squeeze in telling you that I totally got par on a par 3 hole on Sunday. I know that isn't a big deal for most people, but it is huge for me so praise me immediately.

- Apparently 3 year olds don't really have any idea who their mom is. A couple weeks ago Steph, Christy and I were at Wade Oval Wednesday sitting on a blanket drinking wine-it was really romantic. All of a sudden I felt two little hands on my shoulders. I turned around, and there was a little kid standing there yelling something. I had no idea what he was saying or why I was being accosted by him, but I have been accosted by less quality men before-and certainly less cute. Then he wrapped his arms around my neck and gave me a big hug at which point I realized his mother was sitting on the blanket next to us and he thought I was her. Once he realized I wasn't his mom, without missing a beat and completely unaffected by his mistake, he walked over to her and started yelling the same thing. About 10 seconds later his dad walked up almost in tears he was laughing so hard. Ways in which I looked like his mom: we are both female. I'm serious that was it. She had on glasses, I didn't. Her hair was straight and shoulderlength, mine was curly that day and long. Later on his dad came up with their younger son and said, "I thought I should introduce you to our other child since you are the other mommy." I waved hi and the little kid pointed at his mother and said, "Mommy?" It's like he was saying, "So listen you don't look like my mom, but my brother was kind of all over you, and I just need to make sure that I have all my parental figures straight for when I need something later-like if I need to go potty or if I need juice or if I need $20."

Mini-Golf doesn't count silly.

Kids are funny. I would like some cookout food now.

I too hate the acrylic fingernails. Also, people who sit and tap their rings on counter tops and such.

I golf, so I totally know what a huge deal a par is, even on a par 3. (And it's total bullshit that people try to downplay a par 3; that shit is hard, so shut up and congratulate me already.)

And I'm totally going to Cleveland next weekend for my company summer party. Please feel free to pass along any sightseeing must-dos. And by sightseeing, I mean bars.

Congratulations on the golf thing. I understand your joy, because I suck at golf.

Kids are brilliant, I've had so many kids tap me on the shoulder... they tend to realise their mistake at that point though.

I watched my kid do that once, except when he realized the woman he was clinging to wasn't his mom, he started crying. It was classic.

You are a far superior golfer than I am. I suck. Now, if people need a drunken golf cart driver, I'm their gal!
