Quick look! Ooooooo Shiny!

My husband made a good point yesterday when he told me that we need simply to distract President Trump (oh that hurts to say) with shiny things in front of his face before he notices the real things he’s actually going to screw up. 

Think about it, the dude gets pissy at tweets, pictures, and tv shows. So let’s stop him from ruining our country by finding the little shiny tweets, pictures, and tv shows that keep his little mind busy.

Think we can keep him distracted for 4 years? I’m up for the challenge.

Step one, follow @halfonioninabag on twitter. Effing Brilliant!

Step two, tweet him pictures of shiny things like this…

And this…

And my personal favorite…

Don’t have Twitter? Join in by watching every show he hates to boost ratings! Come on y’all, we can do this.

Feel free to add your own shiny ideas! Tweet your shiny ideas out for the world to see! #distracttrump

If we were having coffee…

If we were having coffee we’d be sitting in my living room, with the essential oil diffuser going, and sipping hot apple cider instead of the normal iced coffee with cream I’ve been going for. The whole house would smell delicious and stress free. We would chat about our plans for Halloween and I would show you the costumes I’m nearly done making for the kids. 

If we were having coffee I would tell you about my therapy appointment the other day and how I’m supposed to be find things that refill my energy and positive moods. I find that so hard most days as I find myself lost in my anxieties, but today as I sit here with you I feel a bit rejuvenated. 

If we were having coffee we would eat chocolate and laugh about nothing in particular. We would play games, tell stories, and giggle like kids at a sleepover party. Today I need to hide inside. I need to stay home. But I’m not so off today that I can’t enjoy some aspects of the “outside” world, and so am on Twitter, and reading others blogs, and appreciating that I can be a part of the world even though I am separating myself from the world.

If my 5 year old had twitter

My son is obsessed with sharks, and I mean OBSESSED! His current favorite movie is a documentary on sharks, and not a kids one, no, a predators documentary. Anyhoo, he’s been begging us to let him watch Jaws so today we finally gave in. We watched with him, ready to turn it off if he got scared. He proceeded to sit on the couch giving commentary to his stuffed shark “Sharkys” the whole movie and it finally struck me how similar he sounded to someone live tweeting a movie. So I thought I’d share my amusement. Here is my sons “tweets” on his first watching of Jaws.

Get her, GET HER! See Sharkys? When you hear dun dun, dun dun, you attack.

The sharks gonna come. It’s hungry it needs to come now. Come on shark!

Whoa the shark got him! See Sharkys? That was a tasty snack for a shark.

That’s not the shark! You’re looking for a great white! That’s NOT a great white you caught!

Dun dun, dun dun, I see a dorsal fin!

WHOA! That is a BIG shark!

You can’t catch the shark like that, he’s gonna eat your boat.

You can’t catch the shark! You’re a fisherman, not a sharkman! *sigh*

The shark is just hungry, okay? He’s not mean, he’s hungry and needs to eat you.

They got the shark. It’s okay Sharkys, it’s just a movie.
