You know how parents are always going on and on about their kids? "My kid this and my kid that" and shut up already, ok? Some of us don't even have kids and others of us have kids but those kids are really just sacks of potatoes dressed in clothes and we bring them around and introduce them to people like they're our kids but then we get hungry and we rip off their little baseball caps and eat the potatoes and OH MY GOD I ATE MY KID!
So parents! On Facebook! Annoying! Sometimes you want to just write them a nasty letter that's like, "no one cares about your dumb kid. Shut up." But you never actually do that because you understand that the parent just loves their kid and parents are supposed to love their kids and they want to be proud of their adorable kid and sing its praises from the rooftops and you understand in your heart, in your bones, that that is ultimately a good thing and complaining about it would not be a good look.
Some people in Australia apparently did do that, though. According to news.com.au's Em Rusciano, a woman named Jade Ruthven received the following enraged letter from a group of "friends" who were miffed by her over-sharing:
Hillary Clinton announced her presidential bid yesterday. There were a lot of reactions! Conservatives had reactions! Liberals had reactions! Lions, tigers, and bears had reactions! All of those reactions were garbage. This is the one true reaction.
Zeke is ready for Hillary. Just not in the way she'd probably expect...(This was Z's immediate reaction to viewing HRC's announcement video. Instant meltdown.)
The British go to the polls next month to determine whether Tory PM David Cameron gets to stay at 10 Downing St or if Ed Miliband and Labour get to form a government. Polls are close. It's getting down to the wire. Fascinating stuff. This post is not about that.
During a photo-op at a school in Westhoughton yesterday, Cameron gave some students a "reading lesson." But what one precocious child learned was how to steal the scene.
