Monday Teeny Poll

Monday, January 12th, 2009
By Glinda


In last week’s poll, I asked if you thought moms had favorites. The highest vote-getter was “yes, but they’ll never admit it” with forty-two percent. Another thirty-six percent said that moms might get along better with a specific child, but they don’t really have favorites. At the moment, I can’t answer for myself as I only have one child, but I have seen many mothers who play favorites, and often quite blatantly.

This week, I want to direct you to an opinion piece by one Joel Stein. In it, Mr. Stein claims that “Your kid doesn’t have an allergy to nuts. Your kid has a parent who needs to feel special.” He feels that the sudden rise in nut and food allergies are a construct of Yuppie parenting.

You Can’t Spell “Diet” Without Intimations of Mortality

Does my fat make me look fat?

Now, I’m all for being healthy. I’m all for exercising (as long as it’s not raining, or too cold, or the weekend, or I have anything better to do). I’m all for eating right. But today I saw something.

And that? That thing that I saw? That just ain’t right.

I shook my head. I had another cup of coffee. I watched old Lily Tomlin specials.

I trawled the internet, looking for parallels, and I found them, of varying degrees of utility and authority: The Olive Oil Diet. The Coconut Oil Diet. The Linseed Oil Diet. The Palm Oil Diet.

But…the Baby Fat Diet?

I don’t care what they say: that shit’s just not right!
