I went to bed last night at 10, & woke up today at 8 am!! So I'm getting over the steroid 'rush' ('roid rush? is that an expression? should be...), & now I'm ready for the bummed feeling for a couple days...(sigh...where do I register my complaint for this kind of health? Is there a complaint department anywhere?)
I was flipping channels on tv the other night, & saw "toddlers & tiaras" on TLC, & I watched, transfixed by the obnoxious behavior...mostly of the little girls, but 'the moms, oh my God, the moms!' It showed us exactly where kids get their behavior training. Kids being spoiled, demanding brats, and the parents acting like 'She has personality...she's sassy...' as if 'sassy' is something every parent would want their child to aspire to...A generation ago, if a kid acted like that, like it or not, they might get their butt smacked...not now..."Isn't she cute?"...Sheesh, Tif had personality at that age too, but I made sure she was not obnoxious...she was likeable....someone that people like to be around, not someone people make excuses not to have to be around!! In about 20 years, these parents are going to realize they've created monsters...just think, when the parents go to a dr or lawyer, said dr or lawyer being 'sassy'...I may weep for the future, but, I'd just love to be a fly on the wall then!!
That's my girl up there!! One of the most favorite times of my life...she was so full of life (sassy? you betcha!...but she was never a spoiled BRAT!), that this was at the time she was a beautician at a salon, and also volunteered one morning a week at the local radio station...it came to be known as "Tiffany Tuesdays"! She was great on the radio, she & the head dj were a helluva team! He was always thinking up something for them to do...oh, my mistake....something for Tiffany to do....but it always worked well! My girl did the 'wacky stuff', for laughs...like the pictures above show, this was the 'laundromat lottery'...Gary made all the painted ping-pong balls with lotto numbers on them, they drove across town, & Tiff got in a dryer with all the balls, he'd start the dryer, & every so often, open the door & have Tiff give him a number! Or there was the time around Christmas where they had a contest for people to gargle & sing a Christmas song at the same time...they were always doing something funny!
The group of 3 pix up there is really there just to show the middle pic, which shows Tif's look when her uncle gave us a Dalmatian puppy for Christmas!
