Growing Up So Fast

I was walking out of the grocery store the other day when I noticed a, and I'm only guessing, six-year old scratching off a lottery ticket standing in the lobby. I then noticed the fact that they sell scratch-off lottery tickets in a vending machine in this particular store. I realize her mom, or other guardian, probably bought the ticket and gave it to her to scratch but it still struck me as a little odd.
Kids, they just grow up so fast.

That's Not Conditioner

The Quality Inn off Tyvola in Charlotte, NC, while it may not be all that quality, does have superb shower heads. The sleepy-eyed shower Thursday morning already had me looking forward to Friday morning. And, I was please that my hotel-will-provide-shampoo-and-other-sundries gamble had paid off.
So, I grab the little bottles off the bathroom counter and hop in the shower. The water feels great, the shampoo smells nice and fresh, but the conditioner is very disappointing. While it smells light and clean, almost lemony, it just doesn't feel like it's going to condition the hair at all. And for good reason, probably. Lotion is lotion, not conditioner.
On another note, the configuration of the four mirrors in the bathroom provided interesting angles you normally don't see when brushing your teeth. Like, at one point I could see 12 of me. Kind of creepy.

Completely Inapropos

Was sitting on the plane on the way from New York (like 45% Jewish population) to Minneapolis today and the seriously gay male flight attendant comes walking through the cabin and says just about the most imappropriate thing I've ever heard:
"Holy Auschwitz, it's hot in here."
Nothing more to say than, wow.
