the smell of my desperation has become a stench

Well dressed men

Yesterday we were having lunch when I noticed that Tyrant kept looking at the time on his phone. He finally looked up and said, “I hope you don’t mind, but Chris is scheduled to be here any minute so that I can show him how to tie a tie.”

You guys remember Chris? We know him because he was an RA in the dorms when Dane lived there, and he has since become very close friends with everyone. And I guess he doesn’t know how to tie a tie. So he made an appointment with Tyrant to fix that, like, real quick because he’s giving a speech today in front of a very large and formal crowd. I’m glad he didn’t ask me because I don’t know how to tie one either and I’d have suggested that maybe he buy one that’s already tied? Do those exist? A clip-on? Maybe just rebel and go shirtless?

I love that scenes like this happen during my work day. Yes, sometimes working from home can be isolating. And other times, not so much.

Hi. I’m Heather B. Armstrong, and this used to be called mommy blogging. But then they started calling it Influencer Marketing: hashtag ad, hashtag sponsored, hashtag you know you want me to slap your product on my kid and exploit her for millions and millions of dollars. That’s how this shit works. Now? Well… sit back, buckle up, and enjoy the ride.
