Fly On The Wall In The World Of TikTok

     Welcome to another edition of Fly On The Wall, hosted by Karen of Baking In A Tornado. Today, Karen and I welcome you into our homes for a glimpse at what goes on behind closed doors. Since it's still hotter than Hades here in South Florida, the fly is quite comfortable while we humans swelter in the backyard. We've been trying to avoid him though by ducking into the A/C and binge-watching Suits on Netflix (great series!!)

     In last month's Fly On The Wall post, I talked a lot about my gratitude and joy for life. Now Husby is on board with my positivity--so much so that he thinks we should get matching tattoos that say something like, "Be Grateful."  I was okay with this until he said he wanted our tats to be the image of a bumble bee followed by a single grape and a full stomach...."BEE-GRAPE-FULL." Uhhhh....NO! 

     Other than that totally weird idea, the nosy fly has been privy to some other interesting conversations around here:

"Your mind is a strange place."
"Yeah, I don't even like visiting it."

"Why do I keep getting ADHD medication ads on my TikTok account?"
"Probably because you're scrolling too quickly between clips."

"Man, this pug farts a lot."
"Brewski is 12 years old. What do you expect? You're old and you fart a lot, too."
"Fair enough, but HIS farts are deadly. At least I don't have a lethal rectum."
"That's debatable...."

"You spend a fortune on sunscreen. Why are you so worried about your skin?"
"Unlike you, I don't want to look like a potato that has been left in the back of the crisper drawer for too long."

"My stomach is painfully full. Why do you do that to me?"
"ME?? I didn't force you to chow down like a pregnant woman eating for two."
"Oh, this appetite is for more than two; I'm pregnant with food baby triplets." 

"Did you mess around with the settings on my TikTok account?"
"No, why?"
"Because all I'm seeing on it now are animal videos, not sports or funny clips."
"If you watched even one animal video, TikTok will send you more of what it thinks you like."
"I know damn well I didn't ask for hummingbirds, orb weavers, or spotless giraffes!"

"I read about the RSV vaccine on TikTok and we need to get it as soon as possible since we have a new grandbaby coming in 7 weeks."
"But the shot is brand new, and you can't believe everything you hear on TikTok. I'm worried about side effects."
"What side effects?"
"I don't want to sprout a third limb. I already have enough limbs that cause me aches and pains---I don't need an extra one."

"It's so fun to watch all the squirrels go after the peanuts in our feeder." 
"That's why I call it the 'peter-feeder' because they love nuts."
"That's it---you need to lay off the caffeine."

     I guess it's time to hide the coffee maker from my husband now since his brain is like a runaway train. But that's not going to stop me from loading his TikTok account with clips of albino squirrels searching for nuts.

***WANT MORE MENO MAMA? This month you can find me on ALWAYS PETS talking about outdoor dog breeds (read it HERE) and my latest for Healthgrades on the benefit of certain foods for menopause symptoms HERE.

Now go check out what the nosy fly has been up to on Karen's blog at Baking In A Tornado.
