    I’m Socially Skill-less

    My husband recently told me that I pulled a bait and switch on him. When we met, I was a super social, outgoing extrovert. I could hold a mean conversation. Politics? Yes, I have an opinion! Religion? Sure, let’s chat! Current events? Bring it. I’m totally up-to-date. READ MORE

    Felicity Huffman's What The Flicka - We Said Yes
    Mary Theresa Archbold and Pat Shay

    We Said Yes

    WE did it. The unthinkable. We decided to go to see Elmo Makes Music.

    There were a hundred reasons to say “No”:

    Our two year old son isn’t the biggest fan of “the Street” to begin with.

    We just had a new baby too – and our kids, like Pro Wrestlers, like to tag team their naps.

    Did we really want to sit in a theater with hundreds of preschoolers, getting yelled at by people in mascot costumes?

    Mary actually donned the red suit professionally for a brief while. The experience still brings out night sweats.

    So, of course. we said “Yes”. After all, it’s not like Thomas the Tank Engine is going to sing and dance. READ MORE
