I never knew chickens could be purple until I opened the packaging to a large roaster today and saw it with my own two eyes.  I even held a piece of my son’s purple shirt up next to it to prove that the chicken did, indeed, have purple undertones under the skin. I was too …
Ok so I need to speak about a very important topic since I am a nurse practitioner.  It’s about the flu shot.  Before you groan, I want you to know that I am privy to both sides of the story.  Yes, given the fact I am in the medical field, I promote both giving and …
Did you ever have an innocent conversation with someone only to have it completely misinterpreted by that person and the more you tried to explain yourself, the worse it got? It happened to me a short while back and led to what I thought was a hilarious take on the simplest of things.  My husband, …

Wrap rage…I knew such a thing existed but I never knew anyone had slapped a label on it.  The truth of the matter is wrap rage is real!  I researched it this weekend after slicing my knuckle open trying to get the stupid plastic wrap off a bottle of soy sauce. It’s a rare occasion …
