Call me, Maybe?

So, that’s a maybe? The President of the United States gave a primetime speech to say “Maybe?” Odd. No, I am not getting all political on you. I hate politics. My husband ran for congress and it was a nightmare. I’m talking “1, 2 Freddy’s coming for you…” scary. It’s a dirty sport especially when you are not rich. Scoring $14.30 in soda cans doesn’t buy much. Well, a top local politician didn’t think he was worthy of running in the primary. Apparently, for some the whole We love the troops thing is just BS. “What have you done besides kill people?!” he screamed, spraying the room with his venomous saliva.

I don’t get into political debates. It’s just not my thing. Now, if you want to discuss the future of the RHONJ, I am your girl. My head isn’t completely in the clouds. I actually know and care about what is going on in the world. I worked as a journalist for a decade. (She says throwing a fancy title at you to prove her intelligence) I will admit, however, I have a hell of a time naming all the U.S. states on a map, though. The corners are easy.

Clearly, allowing my daughter to eat Bit O’ Honey before bedtime was not my best move as a parent. She made this sweet pouty face and said, “please, Mommy.” I couldn’t help it. What other 3-year-old begs for Bit O’ Honey? Next thing you know she will be asking for poppyseed dressing on the side.

I can report that Milli, Geo and Bot won’t be invading Syria. Will the U.S.? I guess, the president is telling congress, “Sike! You don’t have to vote yet.” When they do I assure you a few politicians will go with go with the My mother told me to pick the very best one and you are not it… process of elimination. President Obama threatened to spank Syria, but is giving it another chance. (But if you do this again mister you’re in big, big trouble.)
