So how many rainy days does it take before a mother orders two identical princess umbrellas for her girls because they won’t stop fighting over the same, stupid, broken, pink, crap umbrella?
Oh, about 8 days of rain.
I used that 1 click ordering on Amazon.
How scary is that 1 click feature? I mean, you’ve barely started to contemplate whether you really need a genuine leather executive jacket for your Kindle and suddenly you’ve impulsively clicked and within what seems like 45 minutes, a postman delivers it to your door.
There should be some kind of safeguard feature on that 1 click ordering. At least for moms stuck inside with kids who won’t stop arguing about dumb umbrellas.
So today, despite the weather, there were a number of paparazzi camped out in my neighborhood, waiting for a guy named Kiefer Sutherland. That’s them outside Sutherland’s apartment building.
Usually the “24” star just comes and goes without much attention.
But not this week.
Because recently, Sutherland allegedly head-butted a fashion designer at a party at the Mercer Hotel. Apparently, the actor, who was talking to Brooke Shields at the time, thought the designer got too close to her.
So of course, the obvious solution was to head-butt the guy.
And you see, I would have been so obsessed with talking to Brooke Shields, about the gross unfairness of “Lipstick Jungle” being canceled while “Two and a Half Men” is still on the air, that I would have totally forgotten to head-butt anybody.
Happy Mother’s Day ladies! May your Mother’s Day be whine free and sunny and lovely.
