In my early 20s, I sat on my mom's sofa and watched MTV.  I complained to my mom, "What happened to all the good music?"  She laughed and said that was a sign of me getting older.  I reunited with all my old 90s or something later music and share with you the list of... (drum roll)

If you're looking for UnReal or Devious Maids, Lifetime will disappoint you this summer.

Netflix had a few good shows/movies, however, to kick off the summer:

5. Black Mirror
4. The D Train (shot at my old high school and jogging path!)
3. The Angriest Man in Brooklyn
2. The Big Short
1. A Place Beyond the Pines

Share the list!
Disclaimer: This is the sole opinion of Crowley Belle, and she has great taste.

After a week into summer vacation, my 15-year-old woke up and asked, "Hamburgers for breakfast?"

I told her it was noon.

Always write incomplete sentences.
The difference one space makes.
(When you mean to say...)
Always write in complete sentences.

You meet someone new with an 18-year-old kid, and you yell, "Wait, how old are you to have an 18-year-old kid?"  When the response is 38 and you realize you're turning 37... and then your best friend points out her kid is turning 18 next month...

Share if you laughed!
