Celebrating Women for the Real World

Tickle Tuesday and Other Stuff

It’s not Monday; and it’s not Hump Day; so it must be Tickle Tuesday!  Tickle Tuesday is our attempt to lighten your load and brighten your day. 

My theory on life:

What Makes 100%? What does it mean to give MORE than 100%? Ever wonder about those people who say they are giving more than 100%? We have all been to those meetings where someone wants you to give over 100%. How about achieving 103%? What makes up 100% in life?  

Here’s a little mathematical formula that might help you answer these questions:


If: A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z


is represented as:
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26.




8+1+18+4+23+15+18+11 = 98%




11+14+15+23+12+5+4+7+5 = 96%


But ,


1+20+20+9+20+21+4+5 = 100%




2+21+12+12+19+8+9+20 = 103%


AND, look how far ass kissing will take you.


1+19+19+11+9+19+19+9+14+7 = 118%


So, one can conclude with mathematical certainty that While Hard work and Knowledge will get you close, and Attitude will get you there, it’s the Bullshit and Ass kissing that will put you over the top


An update to yesterday’s post:

Thank you for all the kind words and thoughts.  Mother-in-law is out.  One doctor looked at her and asked her why they admitted her.  According to him, she’s perfectly healthy. 

Regarding the choice of hospital – Anyone who has an aging parent should relate – you can’t teach an old dog new tricks.  That is the hospital she had her babies at.  That is the hospital that has treated everyone in her family.  In her mind, that is the ONLY hospital in Texas.  Oh, and according to her, all the meals there “were the best meals she’s ever eaten.”  Note to self – must take mother-in-law out more!

Have a great day!
