Halloween Has Gone to the Dogs

18 Oct

 

Before the charcoal on the Labor Day barbecue grill cools, we are bombarded by… ARRGH!

HALLOWEEN

Orange and black invade the retail world. Pumpkins, creepy decorations, and feed bags of over-priced CANDY block the aisles of every store – including the pet store.

Which brings us to the burning question – who is your dog going “to be” for Halloween?

And when did dogs start wearing Halloween costumes anyway?

Summer Beach Bummers

14 Aug

 

Fun in the sun isn’t always fun.

A day at the beach can be more misery than merriment.

And now they tell us sunscreen gives us cancer? Ain’t that sweet 🙂

My 15 summer bummers… What are yours?

1.   Swimsuit wardrobe malfunction when faking bravado on the Boogie Board

2.   Sunburn on private parts

3.   Younger, slimmer, and obviously wealthier women donning floss bikinis, spray tans, and serious diamond earrings

4.   Being buried in bacteria filthy, crab infested, scalding sand for the amusement and photo opp pleasure of loved ones

5.   People who use “summer” as a verb, but not “budget” as a verb […]

Summer Fun? I Feel Your Summer Pain

18 Jul

 

Feelin’ your summer pain!

Barb Best I Feel Your Summer Pain

  • Trying to get in shape. Hmmm… Are your knees supposed to crack when you do squats?

 

  • Too much sun. Over exposed. Face it.

          Oh, well… Isn’t an age spot just a freckle that grew up? […]

Freaky Friday

Jamie Lee Curtis – she’s the mother, she’s the daughter, she’s the mother in the daughter’s body, she’s the daughter in the mother’s body?  Whatever!  Gosh, role reversal comedies are confusing!

She jams at The House of Blues with your garage band, tells your creepy English teacher to take a hike, hops on a Harley for a love ride with the dreamy boy you’re bonkers about and smooches him good – even if it is with her lips, not yours!

 

Mean Girls

Amy Poehler is alpha Plastic Regina George’s “cool mom” in Tina Fey’s screenplay.

What kind of mother flaunts her breast implants, talks trash with your gal friends and offers you an afternoon cocktail?

Hey, don’t judge – it keeps her feeling young! […]

2 Jan

 

Woo Hoo! 2015!

Got resolutions?

I’ve got RID-solutions!

BarbBestHumor

Good luck!

 

In 2015, let’s say Bye-Bye to…

1.      Denial.  “I’ll just have one more chocolate covered cherry because, after all, it’s a vital part of celebrating holiday traditions and participating in the pursuit of freedom.”

2.    Pride. I will not become irritated when I lose at tennis even though a) it is obviously my partner’s fault b) the sun is in my eyes c) I had too much coffee for breakfast d) not enough coffee e) I have a calf cramp f) I’m not wearing my lucky socks. […]

Happy New Year: 7 Things I Learned in 2014

26 Dec

 

Whoosh! Another year has passed like a kidney stone.

Happy New Year!

BarbBestHumor

7 Things I Learned in 2014:

We live. We learn. I feel your pain.

  1. If your hair is falling out, go to the doctor.
  2. Don’t ink and drive. Put the Post-it notes away!
  3. If done wrong, yoga can hurt you more than crocodile wrestling.
  4. The holidays can give you a hangover comparable to one from a Jacuzzi full of vodka martinis.
  5. Don’t bite down on ice, ginger chews, or errant popcorn kernels unless you crave intimate time with your gabby dentist.
  6. The more you do… the more that needs to be done. (Fig Newton’s Law of Momentum)
  7. With age comes perks. I personally delight in my cackle*
    *a raucous laugh resembling the cry of a hen or goose.

 New Year’s Tip: Keep Calm & Cackle On!

Ho Ho Ho Merry Christmas
