If there were reality TV cameras in my house...

There would be a thread about me and you would all be mocking me relentlessly.

I thought about that earlier when I was singing the chorus of The Butt-Wiggling Song for the umpteenth time today (with accompanying choreographed dance.)

I just adore my grandpibble, but he's what one would call a lively dog.  Or a handful.  So I do what I did when my kids were small and also getting a little too rambunctious (I had 'lively' children.  No surprise as according to my mom I was a 'lively' girl myself) and that is ... out silly them.

See, sometimes the chaos and the noise makes me want to yell and get cranky.  And I don't like me that way so I subvert it with made up songs and ridiculous dance numbers.  Or sometimes puppet shows with socks and potatoes.  Or free form poetry disguised as rap battling the four legged ones.  I always win - I suck but I'm more verbal than the dogs are and the cats just ignore me.

Once, when my youngest kidult walked in while I was in the middle of signing my latest hit, "Who's My Sack of Love Potatoes?" he stopped and just stared stonefaced until I was done.  I reminded him I did this to them when they were small and his reply, 

"I know.  Sometimes I wish you'd have just smacked us instead."

I don't know where he gets his sarcasm.

I’d watch your show to get ideas. And to hear more sarcasm from your kids. 😂

      I can highly recommend the tv show "Charite", wich wikipedia tells me is available on netflix US. It's a german show about the famous Charite hospital in Berlin. It mixes fictional characters with real one. Season one starts in 1889 and has famous physicians like Robert Koch, Rudolph Virchow, Emil von Behring, Paul Ehrlich, Kitasato Shibasaburo and Arthur Conan Doyle. Season two starts in 1943 and has famous surgeon Ferdinand Sauerbruch and his wife Margot Sauerbruch, Adolphe Jung, psychatrist Max de Crinis and the spy for the allied forces Fritz Kolbe.

      To me a "red shirt" is a Star Trek character who is killed <2 minutes into an episode.

      I remember when I realized Juliet was wearing a red shirt on LOST, and yes she was killed off.

      The cynic in me says it was to do with the timing of the show (didn’t she release the news just before the season started?) but jm2c’s reason is nicer.

      If are referring to Jessa then no  she announce in January just before the season end. Lauren and Jessa was due at the same time, but then Lauren miscarried and Jessa waited a little but more to announce

      My sisters and I were a surprise when we popped up on the ultrasound because there was no known history of multiple births on either side of the family, other than I think a great-aunt may have had a twin who was stillborn. Meanwhile, my husband’s dad and grandma are/were both fraternal twins, but that won’t affect whether or not I have twins (if I ever manage to get pregnant...) Only the fact that I’m a triplet will, I assume, affect my chances. My sisters and I are two identical, one fraternal.

      Thank goodness I was a career woman because it enabled me to escape my abusive marriage.  If I hadn't been earning a good paycheck on my own I would have been stuck in a miserable situation. So, Flicka, I am damn happy that I could take care of MYSELF when I hit one of those "deep pits in the road."  I am so tired of the judgmental crap.
