FRIDAY FAST ONES
I've had my car with one of those electronic keys for about 5 years and only about a week ago did I realize that I don't have to look at the buttons on the key because righty locks it tight and lefty opens it loose! My light bulb moments are getting mundane - but at least I still have them occasionally.
2.) Thursday nights there is a big patio party with live music, multiple bars, fire pits, big screen TV and I don't know what all else at the restaurant next door to the hotel. It draws a huge crowd every week - valet parking is necessary for the overflow parking. The police are out in force at 10 when the music stops to pick off the drunks in their cars. We get a lot of very tipsy people trying to come into our place for the nice bathrooms and sometimes to keep drinking after the party shuts down.
Apparently the crowd at this event is on the older side. But I have to say - I am really tired of middle aged men coming into our bar complaining or joking loudly about "all the cougars" next door. I find the term offensive and every one of the guys is just as old or older than any of the women I have seen coming and going.
Why do men feel entitled to younger women. Why do they feel entitled to put down women of their age who are out there having a good time? She we just be locked away after 35? Am I taking this too personally?
3.) I took Ally to see the Head & Neck doc today. Her frequent sore throats, strep and mono have gotten to the point that she is insisting she wants her tonsils out. The doc agreed that her tonsils were huge and it could be beneficial to have them out.
I have no problem with doing it. I had tonsillitis repeatedly well into my 20's and never had mine out but would have liked to. I can understand her misery and she is sick a lot. The problem? Her dad. He is adamantly against any medical alterations to the body. He didn't even like letting her get her ears pierced.
So my question is - do I go against him in this? She will be 18 in a couple of months and can make the decision completely on her own - should we just wait? Any input on teens getting tonsils removed?
