'Your English Is So Good!'

I can read, write and speak in two other languages in addition to English and have a strong background in a third. My mother tongue is Urdu. However, my children grew up speaking English.

When Doctors Say "Scooch" It's Never a Good Thing

The doctor entered with his miner's light and didn't even say hello. He said, "Scooch." Scooch is never a comfortable word for a woman. Why does he get all chatty when he's south of the border? Once he's got out the salad servers, he starts talking about his golf game. One time he said, "Oh, you've been to the beach."

Five Things Hollywood Pretends Are Affordable

If you spend a lot of time watching movies, you begin to notice a trend: movies are about Average Joes. Yet it seems Hollywood apparently would have us believe that John Q. Public has easy access to all the things people with money tend to be doing. Here's a list of five examples of pricey things that we keep seeing Average Janes doing on TV and in the movies.

Maybe She's Born With It? Like Hell She Is

I think the biggest ruse that women try to sell themselves, and each other, is that WE are aging naturally. While some of us are 'maturing' better than others, my belief is that after a certain age most women are actively doing their personal best to slow down father time -- they're just not telling anyone about it.

Go over these phrases and try to figure out if they're Sex or Parenting?

While I believe it is important to keep our kids somewhat up to date with current affairs, do they really need to know and digest every piece of bad information that hits the ever expanding radar?

Eating Sushi? You Are Doing it Wrong

If a real friend is the person who tells you when you have bad breath, then what I'm about to tell you will make me your best friend; whenever you eat sushi, you are embarrassing yourself. That's right, the abominations you commit to your California Roll bring shame upon your whole family. Are you one of those people who rub their chopsticks together? Do you proudly explain to your rube aunt from Kelowna that this is how you get rid of the splinters? Dude, look around you. This isn't Quest for Fire.
