I make sure my kitchen sink is completely cleared before I go to bed. Then when I wake up, I get upset that in the middle of the night my kids left the sink full of dishes.

For some reason I take pictures of the messy sink. What am I planning on doing with these pics…I have no idea, but it makes me feel better.

@Saltssaltgirl When I take similar pics (and it's usually my husband's transgression), I send them right to him... 😂

OH: a household member calling another household member on the phone telling them to not open the front door tomorrow unless they've checked to make sure the lizard sleeping by the front door has moved 🦎

@inquiline Me, but with bugs. The lizard is welcome anytime... 😂

@inquiline I once stayed with a cousin (in the Caribbean) and a lizard just chilled on the dining room wall for days. (The doors and windows were open every day, but he took his sweet time leaving. Lol) I was the only one willing to sit in there. 😂 I have a thing for reptiles.

@inquiline It makes sense you wouldn't want him to wander in and starve. As for the squeamish part: see my original comment. Depending on the type of bug, I might have to move! 😭😂

So the Parks and Recreation Department in Arlington, MA is proposing charging daycare centers $3,000-$5000 because residents are complaining about daycare children constantly using the parks. Let me say that again. People are complaining that kids are using a public park. 😶 (Video credit: WBZ-Boston)

@StillIRise1963 Eyes have been scaring me lately with their capacity for picking up things I hadn't thought was possible. Someone close to me just had strep in one eye and lost their sight...

WhatTheChel,
@WhatTheChel@mas.to avatar

@StillIRise1963 You and me both! Took forever (and multiple scraping surgeries 😬) to control the infection. And now they have to remove the eye. So scary.

@StillIRise1963 Initially right in the ER with no anesthesia because it was so severe. 😬 I try hard not to think about it...

WhatTheChel,
@WhatTheChel@mas.to avatar

@StillIRise1963 Exactly. Smh He's doing really well right now, thank God. But he does still need the eye removed...

Every Xmas eve when my twins were little, as they fell asleep, my sister would run down our street in NYC ringing sleigh bells with my doorman along side her yelling "Ho Ho Ho."

I, admittedly, curse way too much, but I just adore a faux curse. When I was a kid, one of my Mom's friends was a very proper Southern lady. Instead of saying "They think their shit don't stink" she would say, "Some people think they poo poo vanilla ice cream".

What is your favorite faux curse?

@RickiTarr Personally, I just go with the real thing, but I get a kick out of my mom saying, "Oh, shamrock!" 😂
