i've read recently of some bad mommas. i was in the grocery store sleeping in my pet human's pocket, when i poked my head out. i smelled blueberry coffee wif a touch of hazelnut, my fav. ( today is national coffee day ) giving the aisle a sniff, i saw a cute girl in a cart, and she wanted some cereal, and her mom, like any mom, did not think the brand was good for her, "no honey, not that cereal, let's pick another..." to which the girl replied, quite loudly, so all of us could hear: "YOU'RE A BAD MOMMY!!"
i dived for the safety of my warm pocket, wif a wiggle, and the pet human chuckled. obviously, the lass had it backwards, but it might take her a few years to figure that out. this is not the kind of mommy i am instantly referring to. no, i'm talking about those mommys who provoke fights, and get arrested or find themselves on the evening news occasionally. i read where one actually scheduled, set up the fight, then famously recorded the action on her iPhone. was this for posterity, or to relish the lovely moment during the holidays?
why a mom would set up an after-school fight between two kids is beyond me. whether by osmosis, or any other transference the kids involved will probably grow up to be bullies in the least, lead horrible lives; or become drunkards, like my swedish Uncle Freddie.
i have asked these two rapscallions not to wrestle in the street, it might give the neighborhood a bad rep, but they persist. i've spoken to their mom, she's on the right, in the bushes, she seems to encourage their hood behavior.
not only do the two offenders not care who sees their dysfunctionality, of which they are blissfully unaware, they are quite comfortable stopping traffic, and letting the entire planet see this disreputable conduct.
should i even bother speaking to the mother? i have mixed thoughts on this, i think she's just interested in finding another hit of fall berry sauce.
