Honey Boo Boo: Pass the Meds and the Razors

I don’t know what it was about this week’s episode, but it just seemed to hit a new jaw-dropping level. Starting with Sugar Bear and his underwear…. 1)       No one needs to about your underwear, or the lack thereof, Sugar Bear. 2)       When the family went to the park, I realized that no one can say that they don’t use their imagination for entertainment. However, I can’t lie—I was cracking up!! 3)       “Momentus”—Sort of like “momentum” 4)       I found it interesting that Mama June sneezes on her food, but would not eat a hot dog off the picnic table. I mean, at least she has limits. 5)       Man heels---Novel, Honey Boo Boo! 6)       Wait-----Was that a goat head in wreath on the wall?!?!?! 7)       A day at the spa---complete with “Chin Vacuuming” and “Neck-cials.” 8)       Mama June, no one…I repeat, NO ONE, wants to “jiggle your rolls.” 9)       Was anyone else confused as to why Honey Boo Boo covered her EARS when she was talking about the bad S

Honey Boo Boo: It's Just Too Much!

This week's installment of Honey Boo Boo!! 1)       YES!!!! Mama June opened it up with her sneezes---Those make me giggle everytime!! 2)       Was she handwriting her invitations?? With a sharpie?? 3)       No----she didn’t order some Porta Johns for the wedding/commitment ceremony----Y’all…… 4)       “Big girls wear lace ups”---Are we sure about this??? Because I kinda feel like some lace ups would look like a busted can of biscuits. 5)       “bat cave”-------a new name for my vajayjay 6)       I gagged……she hocked a loogie and swallowed----ok I can’t comment on that anymore! Moving on….. to the bat cave! 7)       “Stretch pants are fat girl jeans”---Confession: A friend and I   have considered “Pajama Jeans”---don’t you dare judge!! 8)       Their definition of health food and my definition are different---guess that’s what makes the world go round. 9)       “Hitcssssssed”---hitched/ married/ committed 10)    “Dancing is all about hand placement”---

On Being a Teacher

       This blog has been in my being for a few weeks now. However, today, I am sitting in an empty classroom and pondering. The desks are lined, new welcoming d├ęcor adorns the walls, and it is like the calm before the storm, or the deep breath before a high dive.      Students will be here in a few days, and the stormy journey will begin. I will challenge them and they will challenge me more. But, for now, everything is clean and orderly until the students will come in with their grand ideas and dreams. And I want nothing more than to encourage and nurture those dreams with them.     You see, I went to school to be a teacher of English, and yet there are things I haven’t learned.      Like the feeling when I see an old student who is getting ready for college--and suddenly I feel old and question "Did I do everything I could to prepare her??" No doubt she will succeed but did I do everything I could to challenge her enough... To push her beyond her limits a

Honey Boo Boo: The Smelly Lessons

It’s Wednesday, also known as Hump Day (said in my best camel voice), which also means its Honey Boo Boo day!! 1)       Let me start this one off just by saying that I was truly impressed with how Jessica, aka Chubbs, stepped up to the plate to keep the “home fires burnin’” while Sugar Bear was in the hospital. 2)       Honey Boo Boo, “The Maid”---One of her many talents!! She is quick and efficient! She’s green! She just mops the refrigerator and counter tops with the same mop and water she mopped the floor with……. 3)       To plan a bridal shower, at least in McIntyre, GA, all you need is a buffet, oh and meatballs. 4)       “Skin-Scurn” not to be confused with “concern” though the words are synonyms. 5)       If ever you are known or remembered by a smell, never, ever, let it be “The girl that smells like fish.”----This is not a compliment. And then to find out, by her own sisters, that Anna smells like Tuna…. Y’all….. I’m concerned. 6)       Also, onions, smel
