To Open Push Here.....Really?

Has anyone ever been able to open a box of Kraft mac and cheese where it says To Open Push Here?

Anyone? Anyone?

I have never. I try, and the harder I try, the more the box bends in. Finally I resort to tearing the top off, piece by piece, but it is glued pretty tight and it ends up being an exercise in why I should stop biting my finger nails and grow them out. I need a bit of nail to slide under the flap to loosen it.

So, Kraft Mac and Cheese, really? Is that really how to open your box of delicious high sodium goodness?

Maybe I'm not pushing on it right. The directions seem easy enough to follow, but it never works for me.

I also might be giving this yellow half circle of mystery way too much thought over the years.

Banana Butts Are Gross

What kind of sick, twisted person eats the butt of the banana? That little tip that sticks out? All weird and blackish?

Not me, that's for darn sure. I carefully peel a banana and break that tip off inside the peel so I don't have to look at it. Even if I'm making banana bread, that banana butt is not going to be in my bread, lurking about, waiting for an unsuspecting mouth.

I'm not saying it's poisonous, but it can't be good for you. It's totally gross.

I thought I raised my kids right. Until today, when my daughter said sure, she eats the end of a banana. What's the big deal?

Only that it's the grossest thing ever.

Where did I go wrong?

Toothpaste Is Not A Haircare Product

It's the simple things in life, the things we all know....I mean, really, we all know toothpaste is not for hair. Duh.

And then it somehow gets into your hair and you truly understand all the whys and hows and reasons that toothpaste is not a haircare product.

All I'm saying is, to my brand new nephew who has his first picture taken with Oh Cho with her hair looking like a birds nest disguised as a pony tail, you wouldn't understand man. You weren't there. It was on my comb and I didn't know it until it was too late and then I had to run to the school to get the kids, then run to the hospital to wait for your birth. I didn't have time to wash it out.

And since we are speaking of universal true truths, I knew you were a boy. Never question Oh Cho's gestational gender guesses. I'm always right!

Welcome to the world R.G.C. Our next photo will be much better, or I'll destroy the memory card it's on!
