Recurring Themes

“My daughter’s teacher in kindergarten helped her write this little note for me for Mother’s Day. Do you notice a recurring theme? I suppose I should be flattered that she thought I only looked half my age!”

Demon Bush

“Twenty-five years after dummy broke up with me, I married him.  It was the sweetest thing in the world and everyone was excited for us.  His brother Brian agreed to take photographs of us at the local museum.  We took some stunning ones at the front and on the lawn of the offices, but followed the advice of an administrator and went to the North Garden as she said, “That’s where my daughter’s best photos came from.”  I was going through the pictures when I saw I totally blocked my husband out with my big hair.  When I posted it on Facebook with the admonition, “Never marry a woman with big hair” a good friend of mine pointed out the bush in the background looks like a demon.  Needless to say, it elevated this photograph to Super Awkward Status.  Enjoy.”
