Things That Leave Me Scratchin’ My Head {Coffee Talk}

Coffee Talk {Living Outside the Stacks}1. I love bacon. Goodness knows, I love myself some bacon. My friends and I are constantly discussing the many ways bacon can be used to enhance everything from steak to chocolate but it has never once occurred to any of us to use bacon as currency. But one guy, Josh Sankey,  is traveling across the U.S. on Oscar Meyer’s dime using bacon as currency. Everything he gets from gas to food to lodging is paid for using bacon! GeniusDude, if you’re ever in Missouri, I’ll trade you one of my hand crocheted scarves for some bacon. May even throw in a kid or two….

2. And while we’re on the subject of food, did you hear about the college professor who breast fed her kid during class? Now, before everyone gets all “breastfeeding is natural” on me, let me explain, I agree “breast is best” but there are some places a breast should never make an appearance and the classroom is one of them.  The professor’s excuse was that her child was sick and hungry, ummm, stay home with the kid, excuse yourself and let the TA take over while you handle your business, there were plenty of other options.

3. I guess this next one is only natural ’cause what goes in must come out… And, apparently, this mother thought it was OK for it to come out in the middle of a restaurant. Yep, you read it right, a mother found it to be too much of a hassle to take her tyke to the bathroom so she decided to  plop her kid on the pot in the dining area of an eatery. I know how tough it is to potty train, but that’s not right and the manager would have been well within his or her right to ask the parents to leave. And, ummm, doesn’t that violate some health code? I guess she’s never heard the old saying “Never pooh where you eat.”

What had you scratching your head this week?

    There are some places, many really, where kids just don’t belong. Add to that, wear training potties don’t belong. If you can’t be bothered, don’t be bothering others with your poor choices.

      I was one of the few people who supported a restaurant owner who decided to ban children under the age of 5 from his business. I don’t think everyone should just have to deal because parents don’t know how to tend their kids. And potty training in the middle of an eatery just confirms my belief that banning may be good business.

    Bacon as currency!!! I love him and I love Oscar Meyer. Bacon is KING!! Yeah, I’m not down with the breastfeeding teacher. Keep the sick kid home and don’t pull your boobs out in front of your students. The potty??? No freaking comment.

      Isn’t that bacon idea one of the best ever?! And that professor ought to be reprimanded, totally not cool.
