I have a question and an answer for you today. Now the question is not a riddle like it might sound. It is a valid question that I need an answer to.
What is it called when a gay man has a crush on a woman?
A full blown, act like a school boy, perma grin crush? I witnessed this first hand last night when I was out with my brother. It was so cute. She is a bartender in a restaurant he likes to hang at in Chelsea. He was so excited to go in and see if she was there. When we were on the sidewalk he saw she was behind the bar and I swear to God I watched him go from a grown man to a 13 year old kid in a matter of seconds. I'm going to tell you what, she was super cool, if I was a gay guy I'd probably have a crush on her too. For real. We hit it right off, we chatted and talked and talked, we had one more cocktail than expected. We talked yoga and the laws of attraction, facebook, life, you name it we touched on it. At one point my brother said, " Amy, I'm about to go all Tonya Harding on your ass if you don't shut up." Whoops.
Food for thought.
What do you do when you are out in public with your kids and they start to fight?
You bark like a dog. This comes directly from Marc. He called me today and told me he figured it out. Saige and Chase are 15 months apart. They have a tendency to bicker. He said though, if they start to do this you simply start barking at them. They get so embarrassed that they shut up right away. If you are in the car and they start to fight you just roll down the window and bark at the driver next to you. After a while all you have to do is growl at them and they straighten up in seconds. I'm sorry, I think this is genius. There is no begging, no threats, no tears of despair. Just act like a dog. Kids are so quickly humiliated. Brilliant. You can thank him.
