I’m a “Cracker”! What are you..and who really cares?

I haven’t been called a lot of names other than my own during my life. But the few names I was called weren’t mine. I’ve been called ”Louie”, “Lou” and ”Hollywood” all which I can accept, But call me “Cracker”, “White Trash”, “Whitey” or “Louise”  and my water starts to boil. Not really, I couldn’t give a damn!

So why do self-respecting people give a crap what other people call them?

“English” becomes “White” becomes “Cracker” Becomes “Caucasian”

“Colored” becomes “Negro” becomes “Niger” becomes “Black” becomes “African-American” and then whatever the new term is…

“Mexican” becomes “Hispanic” becomes “Latin American”

“Yellow” becomes “Asian” becomes “American-Asian” becomes “Pacific Islander”

“Redskin” becomes “American-Indian” becomes “Native American” becomes “Indigenous-American”

WHY do we care about labels so much? And how many of us are really only of one blood?

If used as an invective, then I get it. But otherwise, slow your roll.

Call me whatever you want, so long as you call me. And if you want to plié on with more labels that don’t really matter, then please comment below.

Every day I have to break my brain figuring out what to feed my three kids. Who ever thought that would be the hardest part of parenting. Are you on drugs? NO! Do you drink alcohol? NO! Are you having sex? NO! What do you want to eat? I dunno know?


OK, so who wants a sandwich? (2 of 3)

Who wants a hamburger? (2 of 3)

Who wants pizza? (2 of 3)

How about a salad? (0 of 3)

Seafood? (1 of 3)

Pasta? (3 of 3)…ok now we are making progress. So spaghetti and meatballs for everyone. NO! I don’t like sauce, I don’t like meatballs.  I only want noodles.  I want turkey. I want beef. No spice. @#$%&

Bacon and eggs? I love bacon! I hate bacon! I want scrambled eggs! I want basted eggs! I hate eggs!

Pancakes? I love pancakes! But no syrup but with butter. I love pancakes but only with peanut butter. I hate pancakes! I want waffles! I hate waffles!

Pork? Isn’t that a pig? Pigs are so cute!~

How about Chicken? I want baked! I want fried! I want fingers! I want nuggets!

O.K. then SALAD it is! Bon Appetite!
