    I am almost positive I could come up with new

    I recently had the pleasure (not

    so much) of being stared at by a bratty 9-year-old girl. It made me super uncomfortable. It's like... stop staring at me! I think I would feel uncomfortable with anyone just staring at me. Even my husband. I don't mind it sometimes, but other times, even him staring at me can...

    Now I Will Give Them Their Shots

    People who do not cover their mouthes when yawning. Hats worn indoors.  (Baseball caps worn backwards - yikes!) Personal space invasion by cell phone.  All Eddie Murphy movies made after Beverley Hills Cop. SUVs and other gas-guzzlers with one passenger. "...

    There's one thing that I can't stand.

    My pet peeve is when people say to others,

    "eww, you're ugly". It bothers me a lot. If someone says you're ugly, that is not true because your personality tells if you are beautiful or not. Looks don't always matter, folks. It never can tell how a person truly is on the inside. And this may sound cliche, but its true, if...
