Last night we had elections where I live and a friend of mine was celebrating getting re-elected to office...so I was out celebrating as well and didn't get as much sleep as I should have. Good excuse to be tired right?
Today on the show:
6:15- When you are a teenager, your parents mere existence is embarrassing to you. I saw this funny and so true list of things that are cringeworthy behaviors of parents. Any of these ring true to you? The sexual ones aside, the dressing like teens and all that stuff hit home with me.
I remember asking my mother to drop me off at the side entrance of the mall because I didn't want to be seen with her when I was a teenage. I also remember going to a movie with her and she was laughing really loudly and I was so embarrassed, I asked her to stop because people were staring at her. Ha! :)
Try as they might, parents pretty much can’t avoid embarrassing their kids. A survey of 2,000 people revealed the top 10parental behaviors that made kids cringe.
1. Watching movie sex scenes with your parents
2. Talking about sex
3. Using abbreviations like LOL and OMG
4. Parental PDA
5. Dads who go through mid-life crises
6. Moms who read Fifty Shades of Grey
7. Wearing revealing bathing suits
8. Getting drunk
9. Discovering your parents’ sketchy Google search histories
10. Dressing too young
7:15- I aired the interview with Maggie Stuckey. She's the author of the book called: "Soup Night: Recipes for Creating Community Around a Pot of Soup" Get the book here or here. Listen to the interview below.
