Random Musings of a Sleep-Deprived Dope Mom

So, last night’s Presidential debate happened and to my surprise, I stayed up and watched most of it; I’m paying for it today, but caffeine.  Anyway, my thoughts while watching last night’s political debacle, ‘what is this shit show?’ While I did lose a few hours of sleep, after watching  Hillary Clinton “debate” Donald Trump I was reminded of a few things:

  1. Make sure I am registered to vote in my state. Today is National Voter Registration Day and if you haven’t had the chance to register, now is your chance. For many states, the cutoff for registration is October 14th; so handle your business people.
  2. “A wise man told me don’t argue with fools. Cause people from a distance can’t tell who is who.” – Jay Z (via Mark Twain)

  3. I forgot to remind all my dope parents (that happen to live below the Mason Dixon line) that it’s Puss Moth Caterpillar season! Seriously, that thing on Donald Trump’s head reminded me to be on the look out for these pesky, poisonous pests.

If you’ve never seen a puss moth caterpillar, you’re probably wondering what the hell I’m talking about. Hell, before moving to the country, I had no idea this thing even existed. Prior to migrating to North Carolina, my bug interactions were limited to roaches, flies, and bigger f**cking roaches…what is happening? Now I’ve got to look out for Poisonous Pompadours? Dis tew much!

This Creepy Closure looks furry and friendly and your little may even be inclined to pick it up and pet it…DON’T. This shit will hurt you, like seriously leave you and your child feeling like your bones are breaking. I know of one mom whose son had a close encounter with these Fuzzy Follicles last weekend and her description of her son’s swollen, red, and intensely painful stings has got me a little shook up. Amir is in his explorer phase, picking up leaves and sticks wherever goes, my worst fear was that he’d pick up a piece of fossilized dog poop…now I’ve got to worry about this damn Trump Moth!

Be safe, beloveds.
