Weekly News

Welcome to Christmas Eve four times removed, or would it be three times? Whatever. Hi there. It’s Wednesday yet again and time for some news tidbits to tantalize your taste buds. I bet that made you hungry for chocolate more than news, huh? Tis the season for that as well.

I don’t have chocolate for you, but I do have news.

This first one had me at first asking who would have a life-size mannequin seat-belted in their car. Once I read further, I understood. But what I don’t get is the kind of dipstick who could not predict having that kind of mannequin belted in could lead where it led. Was he really surprised the cops busted into his car? Some people refuse to think outside their own little bubbles.

This will probably gross most people out, and I must admit that the worm ones look awful. But … I have eaten a cricket stir-fry that was good. It was at a science conference, and it was well done. The crickets added a crunch without adding the funky flavor I expected.

Last but not least, science. This new study shows that motherhood not only improves your life but may also streamline the brain. I like thinking of my brain remodeling into a sleeker, better model of itself because of my son. A few months of poor memory and bad sleep is worth all of this and more.

That’ll do it for me tonight. Merry Christmas to all of you out there who celebrate this weekend. Happy Holidays to everyone who celebrates one of the assortment of other holidays which take place this week and weekend. 🙂

I am a forty-something-year-old writer. I'm currently drafting my second book. I've also written short stories, poems, and some non-fiction over the last several years. My interest in writing formed during countless hours with my nose tucked in books. I may have even been clutching a novel as I was born. :)

    My brain isn’t streamlined either. LOL I’m sure my husband would agree with that.

    Merry Christmas.

  2. Probably shouldn’t have left the mannequin in his car, but I’d be mad as well the cops busted out my window.
    Guess I’ll just have to tell my wife her brain isn’t streamlined…
    Merry Christmas, Kim!
