Hatchimal is a word you probably know by now if you’re a parent of small children. It’s the toy you have to buy this holiday season to prove your love to your kids, and it can’t be found anywhere because once parents get a clue that they might be able to buy their kids’ love, nothing can stop them. No parent wants to see a look of disappointment on their kids’ faces come Christmas morning, so if a hatchimal can fix that, it must be done! Personally I think a little disappointment at Christmastime can be a great developmental tool for young kids, but what do I know, I’m not allowed near school zones anymore. But with this hatchimal shipment coming in, I won’t have to.
Many young students entering college gain the freshman 15. Some people like to make fun of this; I openly welcome it because it puts girls 15 pounds closer to my league. However, there’s now a freshman 15 for adults, and it’s called the Trump 10. People who are so stressed out and tired from the election cycle and Trump’s election in particular are eating their way into a food coma to ease the stress level. I say eat on; no one wants to live the years past 70 anyway.
Nothing’s better than when a newscaster has a meltdown on the air. In this day and age, with trigger words gaining more power to rattle the already off-kilter emotions of the type of people who want to be in front of a camera, we should get to see more of this. This week there was a great meltdown on CNN caused by none other than the “n-word.” Maybe if the newscasters makes it hers and owns the word, like black people did, it won’t bother her anymore. It might bother a few other people though.
