Odds and Ends

1. Are you interested in language and grammar? You simply must read this. Absolutely fascinating to me.

2. Relationship dealbreakers. Apparently, according to the comments, issues around cunnilingus are paramount. #okaythen

3. Listmakers, have you seen this pretty little app?

4. Michelle Obama killing it in Italy. I just adore her.

5. Humanizing evil. (Did you read the original article in The Atlantic?)

6. Television channel accidentally puts kids show subtitles on a political debate in Sweden. Fantastic.

7. Every summer, I find my perfect sandal. This one is it. (I got the pewter shade.)

8. Forget beachy highlights, the newest hair color trend is charcoal.

9. Harvard student submits rap album as his thesis. So cool!

10. OMG. These tweets of kids’ quips and responses are hilarious. Two Christmases!

11. This happens to my kids! #tinglymouth #soweird #slightyscary

Happy Friday to all! Our last day of school was yesterday, so summer break is officially here!

    About the itchy mouth with fruit – if it happens with bananas and mangos especially, it can be a sign of a latex allergy FYI.

    Another thought on the itchy mouth – my son used to get that when he ate non-organic apples, but eating only organic apples was fine. He does have seasonal allergies and a cashew allergy, so OAS seems plausible, too, but he can take down anything organic no problem, so might be worth a try for your kids.
