    Telemarketer:  Hi I’m calling from AT&T to let you know of our latest special on cable TV.

    Me: What do you mean? What do I mean? I mean we don’t have cable.

    If someone offers you something too good to be true, it usually is. Today I got a call from a friend, “Wanna go with me to loot some woman’s house?” And I of course responded with a yes, cause that’s what I do- take things that aren’t mine.

    This morning I’m making a French toast breakfast when I peer up towards the television and see a vision that nearly knocks me off my feet.  Normally, I don’t allow TV during the week.  We don’t even have cable. If my kids want to watch a movie now and again, I don’t mind as... read on
