“Ferrando tells the tale of a gypsy woman burned at the stake for witchcraft and how the gypsy’s daughter takes revenge by flinging into the fire the infant son of the nobleman who had condemned the woman.”
What? Whoa. Happy Mother’s Day, Mom. Hope you liked this heart-warming tale.
Creepy as that is, it was still a great performance. I like opera. Who knew?
In between my split shift today, I went to Smart Cow and watched some Spongebob Squarepants. Somewhere, beneath the Cap’n Crunch, gummi bears, bobas, sour gummi worms and sprinkles is low-fat yogurt. Live healthy, yo!
There’s a family that comes into my salon. They’re a rather large family: seven kids in total. I’ve been cutting the boys’ hair for years and the other day, I had my mind blown.
I realize that it takes a lot of budgeting and financial planning to raise seven kids. They’re all clean, well-mannered and presumably talented children. The parents seem to be doing a solid job in their upbringing. Then, out of the blue, the mother brings up their plans for college.
It would seem that Mom and Dad feel that college is very important and they are completely ready to pay for tuition as the kids finish their home-schooling. However, they will only pay for their sons’ tuition. Four girls, three boys. Only the male children will have the support of their parents when it comes to college aspirations. Sure, if the girls gain full-ride scholarships, that’s fine but there will be no plans set into action to send them to college.
