five days? but I'm mad now!

I'm sorry I'm so upset about everything today, you guys.

I'm not going to get into why treats after soccer games are so bizarro right now (orange slices, sure, but king-size candy bars? Big Gulps? really?), but I will tell you about how tonight after The Hulk's soccer game the parents in charge of the treat this time passed out chocolate Zingers and Dr. Pepper.

Remind me why America is dying, again?

Also I want to say that one of the benefits of having deprived children is that they view playing soccer as a recreational activity that they enjoy, and we don't even have to bribe them with money for every goal scored.

You should see the white-hot waves of self-righteousness billowing off of me right now. You could sear a roast on my face.

I'm mad about a lot of stuff too. I'm just not able to blog about it in a way that sounds intelligent or interesting.

Your plants look amazing, your daughter's name is beautiful and unique even if everyone else is jumping on your bandwagon, and I'd be flippin' right out of someone gave my kid Zingers and Dr. Pepper. But I bet the kids were thrilled. Like when a Primary teacher gave my 4 year-old, in her words, "like a cupcake with Zebra stripes and shaped kinda like a stop sign! It was SO GOOD!" Thank heavens for that super important rule in Primary: NO TREATS ALLOWED.

On a funny side note however, her primary teacher told me that Olivia was very grateful and thanked her over and over again. I guess gratitude is another blessing of depriving our children. Go ahead and add that to your roast-searing pride :)

Unbelievable...yet, not really that unbelievable. How do we stop the madness???
