More Popular Than Wonderful, Stinky Dads

Scott: I love you, N.

Daughter: I love you, too.

Scott: I think you’re wonderful.

N: I think you’re wonderful, too, Dada.

Scott: You’re the best daughter ever.

N: You’re the best and sometimes stinkiest Dada ever.


While my daughter’s bringing the facts, I’m becoming more popular by reading and writing elsewhere.

My Other Hangouts (don’t tell my blog):

Favorite posts I didn’t read, I mean, write:

  • Reddit Users Attempt to Shame Sikh Woman, Get Righteously Schooled: From Jezebel, a Reddit user posts a picture to make fun of a Sikh woman and instead of it just being a series of intolerant comments, she responds and he listens. (amazing)
  • You: From Just Shireen, an amazing piece about being single and why some of us find our person so much later in life. (thoughtful)
  • Beauty Can’t Be Stolen: From Girl Body Pride, a mom whose daughter was sexually assaulted at 4 1/2 years old talks of her fears 5 years later of her daughter never believing she’s beautiful. (hopeful)
  • Two Guys Prank Whole Foods Employees With Nonsense Grocery Lists: From Laughing Squid and Mediocre Films, 2 comedians give each other grocery lists of fake foods to ask for at Whole Foods (pinch-a-loaf bread). (funny video)

Alex Iwashyna

Alex Iwashyna went from a B.A. in philosophy to an M.D. to a SAHM, poet and writer by 30. She spends most of her writing time on LateEnough.com, a humor blog (except when it's serious) about her husband fighting zombies, awkward attempts at friendship, and dancing like everyone is watching. She also has a soft spot for culture, politics, and rude Southern people who offend her Yankee sensibilities. She parents 2 elementary-aged children, 1 foster baby, 3 cats, and 1 puppy, who are all Southern but not rude. Yet.
