Twindaddy: Pottymouth

Last week I read an extremely provocative piece on the Daily Post regarding swearing, or not, on your blog. I know swearing is something that many people feel very passionately about. Some people can’t abide swearing. They feel it’s disrespectful and gauche. Others swear as a way to combat censorship. Swear words, to them, are just … Continue reading

Rant: Littering

During my commute to work this morning, I passed through a mowing zone. Workers were out and about this crisp autumn morn, bundled up in warm apparel and wearing their mandatory blaze-orange vests so they wouldn’t be hit by some unsuspecting motorist. The scene I passed through befuddled me. We had our first frost last … Continue reading

The correct response is, “You’re welcome…”

[Editor's Note: It's Friday, Maphia! I'd like to celebrate that fact by having a new guest grace this here weblog with her prose. Please welcome Sofia Leo, who has an opinion and isn't afraid to share it. After you've learned from Sofia's wise words, please head on over to her blog, where she is blogging … Continue reading

When Can a Kid be a Kid?

When I was a wee lad, I hated homework. When I got home from a long day at school (hey, it seemed long to me) I wanted nothing to do with more school work. I wanted to go outside and play a gritty game of football. I wanted to flip on the Nintendo and stomp … Continue reading

Rant: Passive Aggression

passive-aggressive adjective denoting or pertaining to a personality type or behavior marked by the expression of negative emotions in passive, indirect ways, as through manipulation or noncooperation (courtesy of dictionary.com) The internet has given a voice to millions of people. People who avoid confrontation,  yet still like to rebel. People who are pissed off for some reason or another, yet can’t bring themselves to say anything to the people responsible for their anger. So they express their … Continue reading

Miley Cyrus, MTV, and the Finger of Blame

By a show of hands, who here is tired of hearing about Miley Cyrus? Let’s see. Oh, wow. Everybody. Yeah, me too. I was tired of her when she was just a twinkle in her daddy’s achy breaky loins. However, the fine folks at the Daily Prompt have solicited our opinions on her “performance” at … Continue reading

Stop Violence Against…Everyone

Last night after I put Baby C to bed I went downstairs to fiddle around on the internet a bit while I waited for him to fall asleep and the twins took their showers.  I was on Facebook scrolling through a cornucopia of hilarious memes, pictures of my friends’ children, and funny anecdotes when I came … Continue reading

Hero of the Moment: Michael Patterson

If, like me, you’re disgusted by today’s celebrity-oriented society in which actors, athletes, and models or other celebrities are heroes simply because they’re famous, I have some refreshing news for you:  true heroism is not dead.  It’s just simply been ignored. I want to share with you a heroic story, though the story ends tragically. … Continue reading

Censored

I never claimed to be the sharpest tool in the shed.  This post comes days later than the prompt. The Daily Prompt from 6/22/13 queried the Dear WordPress Community what word they would permanently ban from existence if they had that omnipotent ability.  Twindaddy offered up the N word.  Out of respect, not censorship, I … Continue reading

The Golden Rule

Morals. We all have them. We all have a different set of them. What’s that you say? You know people without morals? No, you don’t. You know people with different morals than you. That can certainly make it seem like a person with different morals has absolutely none at all, but I can assure you … Continue reading
