Excellent advice

...or "Why didn't I think of that?" Enjoy.


· Dear Bloggess: My boss goes on and on about how HER daughter makes her own baby food and her daughter's baby sleeps through the night and blah blah blah . . . how do I deflect that crap since i'm lucky to even see my baby at the end of the day? ~ Roo

Anybody's baby will sleep through the night if you give it enough whiskey, but that doesn’t necessarily mean it’s a good idea. Also, baby food tastes awful. Have you ever tried it? It tastes like vomit. So, yeah. Your boss’s daughter is really good at making food that tastes like vomit. She must be so proud. Sadly, you can’t win at this game so just give up and try a new angle. Start mentioning to your boss how amazing your mom’s boss is. Mention that your mom’s boss brings in home-grown organic lunches for all her employees and lets them work from home every Friday to increase productivity and that your mom’s boss also has a naturally high metabolism and once saved a baby kitten from a fire. It probably won’t help but it’ll make you feel better.
