For the last week or so there's a new commercial on the 5 a.m. news. It's for a weight-loss surgery called the Lap Band
. The commercial comes on just as my coffee is brewing and without that first cup, the senses aren't so sharp. So instead of Lap Band, I hear all these people raving about the Lap Dance: "Nothing worked for me until I tried the Lap Dance!" "The Lap Dance is right for people 75 pounds overweight." "I lost 105 pounds with the Lap Dance!!"
P.S. Apparently I'm not the only one who needs a good shot of coffee to clear the ears in the a.m. My conversation with Madi just went like this, "Do I have to go to Nanny's today." "Yes. But tomorrow is Mommy-Madi-Max day." "Today?" "No, tomorrow." "Mommy-Madi-Max day is today?" "TO. MOR. OH."
Of course, this is the child who just the other day took a sip of my coffee and said, "Can I have some of my own?" I said, "Just drink mine." And she said, "No, I want my own coffee in a sippy cup."
