Who’s the kid?

So, I’m watching the ATP World Tour Finals on Tennis Channel whenever time zones and my time allows.

And they’re doing those creepy child escorts again for the players as they enter the indoor stadium.

atp tour child escortsI know this is a cultural difference, so I am trying not to judge.

But I think the players look uncomfortable — the kids look uncomfortable, too.

(This child looks a bit like a tween Chucky doll, which is also a bit unnerving.)

Once the players reach their chairs courtside, what are they supposed to do?

Hug the child? Pat them on the head? Ignore them and go about their prep?

All choices look creepy…from my point of view.

From a ladder

It hurts to raise my arms.

I painted my bathroom today, then recaulked my tub.

Even typing hurts.

Home improvement begats very short blogs.

Hang in there

You can find art — and drama — almost anywhere.

Case in point:

Of course, I still argue that the toilet paper (and the desperate couple pictured here) should be clinging to life on the back side of the roll.

That’s how I was raised. That’s how I roll.

Statistics say I’m in the minority with 80 percent of folks adopting the over-the-roll method.

Sad that so many people are wrong.

Servin’ up a selfie

This pic from the ATP World Tour Finals in London is proof positive –

Everyone should suit up for their selfies.

Hot!

By the book

Remember the relationship manual Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus?

Yeah, I didn’t read it either.

But I did read today that Venus is 24 million miles from Earth, the closest planet in our solar system.

In comparison, Mars is 34 million miles away.

Based on this fact alone,  I surmise that women are infinitely more knowable.

So, there.

There’s still time

You can, too.

Polls are open in New York State until 9 p.m.  Be heard!

(Then wear the sticker and be seen.)

The fine print

If you have purchased or are planning to invest in the convenience of TSA Pre, be warned:

They don’t tell you everything in the sales pitch.

Paying your $100 and completing the in-person interview does not guarantee that you will receive TSA Pre on your boarding pass for every flight.

On random occasions,  you will be placed in general boarding. Just because.

Huh.

Wonder if I will receive a ‘random’ reimbursement for a portion of the fee?
