news briefs...

reading the newspaper with mom today was a hoot. first we read a report citng a study that found belly fat being related to one's risk for alzheimer's. mom said she thought maybe she had alzheimer's. we ended up deciding the study was bogus because all those "nuts"(her description)where she lives are skinny. i didn't point out her rotund shape.

then we read the craziest thing...

"a woman who may have spent two years in a bathroom, sitting on the toilet so long that the seat adhered to...pam babcock, 35, was found stuck to the toilet in late february after her boyfriend called authorities to say something was wrong with her. police believe she sat on the toilet for about a month."

when we finally stopped laughing mom said it must be a slow news day...
then she asked me what rap music was. i told her. a minute later she asked again. so i took the paper and read selected parts of it. that usually helps lessen her confusion. the article was about rappers tupak and notorious B.I.G. and sean "diddy."

"sean bibby?! is he a rapper?"
"not that i know of mom."

hahahahaha. sean bibby is her grandson. and not a rapper.
