I am an absent-minded professor, an empty-nest mommy, an internet social media watchdog/liaison, a professional writer, an education advocate/critic, and a speaker. I do not suffer fools gladly, and I don't think you should, either. I believe in proper public behavior, good grammar, and fairies. I loathe political correctness, euphemisms, smokers, and people who let their kids run wild in public. I have not yet given up on my childhood ambitions of being an astronaut and a ballerina, and people with no sense of humor are very, very, very boring.I love to bake (bread machines are for sissies), sew, quilt, read, and sing along to all kinds of music - especially Broadway, and except country. However, just because I DO sing doesn't mean that I SHOULD. My apologies to all within hearing distance. Children are first. We are last. Period.
