    Well, in all seriousness, there are plenty of high school students who have been told they should become a psychiatrist. The present day high school juniors and seniors should graduate college just in time to begin treatment of Mr. Magazine Time, Jr. Wow! It's like a 10 year jobs plan! Contact the White House! Mr. Magazine Time just saved/created a job!
    LOL.

    Thank you for doing your part to help the economy, Mr. Magazine Time.

    It is nothing short of astonishing that a man like this commands a yearly salary of $100,000+. Even his bosses grouse about how little he does, but since neither likes confrontation, they don't fire him.

      Dear Facebook, I want a million dollars.

      I think the difference is that there are far more people eager to part with a baby than there are those who are eager to part with a million dollars. A million dollars doesn't pee on you while you're changing it or scream for 48 hours straight.

        And it probably doesn't barf in your shirt pocket either. Thanks for the memories, Perpetually Sticky Panda Sibling. The drooling on my shoulder, the peeing in my face, the Diarrhea Meets Shag Carpet incident, the Day The Pocket Died, the booger fiesta, I was so ready to trade him in for a unicorn. Or a chocolate bar. Or a penny.

          Do we have the same sibling? Because that really sounds like my younger brother.

          I used to upend the laundry basket on top of him and then sit on it.

            NICE.

            I had a bald spot from where he liked to yank out my hair. And I do not miss spooning all that baby food into his mouth and then scraping it off his chin and reinserting it into his mouth to get sloshed out again. All over his face, in his hair, on his hands, all over the high chair, all over me, on the floor, on his bib, on his clothes . . . yuck.

            I need a T-shirt saying: I wanted a unicorn, but all I got was this sticky sibling.

            • That was the one time I didn't get in trouble for hitting my brother (the other one, not the sticky one). We were in the back of the car, and he reached out and ripped out a fistful of my hair. I instinctively belted him and he screamed. My mother turned around, saw the fistful of hair (with roots and some scalp still attached) and told him he completely deserved it.

              I was an only child for the first six years of my life. I love my brothers now, but I spent many years wishing my parents had decided to stop there.

                That reminds me of a Teaching Moment years go.

                I had a student who enjoyed tormenting others. It was awful. He'd watch to see what kids' triggers were, and then do precisely whatever it was to set them off. I knew this boy for almost two years and nothing ever made it better, and over time, he got worse. He loved it. Take a kid's beloved stuffed Barney and enjoy the screaming, shove a kid to the cement and smile. There was no reason for any of it; all of these instances were unprovoked. Talking about feelings, time-outs, calling Mom and Dad, it made no impact. He was a predator, in kindergarten form.

                Then one day, we got a transfer of a boy with high-functioning autism. Things had to be just so or he'd have a meltdown. Little Predator did what he did best and started preying on him. We stopped it as often as we could, but in a packed classroom, he still managed to get around us. And he'd take the kid's pencil. Nudge his toy. Scribble on his art project. Hiss a name. And then the victim would have his meltdown, throwing things and screaming and smacking other people, and Little Predator sat back with a grin.

                Finally one day, as I let the kids out for recess, Little Predator did or said something to this kid (it was always unprovoked) and the kid lost his temper and punched him in the face. Little Predator looked back at me and another teacher, waiting for us to haul that kid off the playground, and we pretended we hadn't seen anything. And we didn't do anything. Little Predator deserved it. And he deserved every single punch from other kids that I'd managed to stop in time. And you know what? After that punch, Little Predator didn't bother that kid any more.

                • My sisters and I were always fighting. Well, that's not quite true. My youngest sister and I got along great and covered each others asses when middle sibling would create stories about how we were torturing her or exaggerate what we did to her. (Did I mention I saved middle sibling's ass from many a bully?) One day, I got thoroughly pissed at middle sibling's antics (she milked mom and dad and exploited her ADHD label), knocked her to the ground, and started a fight. I was tired of her being so damn special that she always got her way. Middle managed to get away and went running inside with a faceful of North Texas clay to rat me out. I'm running in to the house to deflect some of the punishment and I hear Mom say "Well, that's what you get for trying to start something. Go play."
                  Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"

                    LOL. I loathed one of my brothers for similar reasons. Once when I was about 10, I was alone in our shared bedroom, standing at the table watching my hamster spin in his wheel, and this brother sneaked up and karate kicked me in the back. Then he fell to the floor with a wail that I had struck him, and I got in trouble for it. Jackass favorite cub.

                    • And the reason for no Q updates is that Q refuses to budge.

                        • Hi GP! Long time no read as I've been busy with stupid stuff... (read: grad school assignments, work)

                          Congrats on finally getting Q to start moving. I'm also doing low carb, high fat, mod protein. It broke my plateau in 3 days after spending a month stuck at my own Q. You're doing great and I look forward to reading more of your stories.

                                Buttered coffee: strong coffee with 2 Tbls unsalted butter (grass-fed) and 2 Tbls MCT oil blended in until frothy.
                                Fat Bread: a marvelous concoction that I found by doing a search of the threads here, then clicked the link to the original. It's fabulous slathered with either butter or baconaise.
