I’m going to take a little break for the holidays now. And when I return on Jan. 10, I promise I’ll have new adventures in swim-coach spousing to share!
In the meantime, just to make life easier for you all, here are links to what I’ve found are my most popular blogs. Most have made their way to this list because people obviously have a deep and abiding interest in water-based gender warfare. (I also have well-visited blogs because some people also have a deep and abiding interest in using search engines to find Internet content about MILFs and “boys in showers.” I have chosen not to spotlight those particular blogs.)
With a few others I’ve listed, it’s because they are also my personal favorites. Whatever brings you to this site, thank you very, very much for reading. I hope you all have a great holiday season wherever on this planet you are, and I’ll see you on the flip side of the New Year!
“Coaching Girls vs. Boys” – when this one first debuted on “another Web site” back in August 2008, it ignited accusations of sexism (I chose not to transport those comments when I set up this site in March 2009). Obviously the accusers have neither coached nor parented both genders.
“Coaching Girls vs. Boys, Round Two” – the evidence was piling up, so it was time to download some new observations.
“Coaching Girls vs. Boys, Round Three” – since this one ran in October, our hungry young man has added another entrée to his shower menu: pomegranates. You might think he’s just messing with us, but clearly you haven’t met Max.
“Are You There, God? It’s Me in Last Place” – this is probably my personal favorite. I live in a state that is arguably the buckle on the Bible Belt, and rarely a week goes by when I don’t thank God (or your Higher Power) for making Sister Caroline Mary a part of my education.
“Just Look at the Parents” – I wish I had transported the comments when this one first ran on “another Web site” because I heard from a swim club in Chicago that really had tried to recruit the oldest Obama child to compete for them after she aced their swim lessons. It’s a small world after all.
“Spouse Coaching” and “Spouse Coaching, The Return of” – these two have been visited quite a bit but the visit that gave me that heart-swell of authorial pride was the one that came in on the Google search term “coaching a paranoid spouse.” Likewise the visit (from Italy, no less) that came in on the search term “get your own damn dinner.” When you see that your words have gotten stuck inside someone else’s head like a cockle burr sticks to a sock, then you know you’ve made your mark in this world.
