After careful consideration of your current blog and writing style, Chicagoparent.com has decided that you really need professional help. You swear an awful lot. Your husband sounds angry. And we're not sure we really want to promote mothers who drink Mike's Hard Lemonade on a regular basis. We can't figure out if you're serious or kidding, and that kind of ambiguity makes people uncomfortable. You make people uncomfortable. Please seek some guidance immediately and don't ever bother us again. Your name has been given to security.
You can imagine my surprise when Carrie actually emailed me about starting a blog over there. I flipped out. When can I start? she asked. Sh*t!
I'm taking my half-blind mom in for her second eye surgery tomorrow morning. Before that, I've got to deposit my children at 3 different homes to be kept in a holding pattern until they have to start school. Doctor-Friend and her family are also coming in this weekend and my house is a disaster. Food choices are limited to frozen pizza and left-over hush puppies...and my friends are foodies:
|I figure if I dress the hush puppies up for the evening, my friends won't notice that they're actually just re-heats of leftovers. Or that there are only 5.|
So here's where I once again need help from my half-dozen followers (minus one because mom won't be reading anything for about a week): I need a name! A new blog name for chicagoparent.com only. Something that will entice all of Chicago to tune in. Something about the southside? Drinking? Virgins? Southside drinking virgins? Come on, gang - think!
As a side note, how much swearing and sacrilege do you think they'll let me get away with over there? Not too much, right?
Yeah. That's what I thought.
