More Than Enough Winking

I posted a picture of myself trying to wink with my right eye, which luckily I can’t because I wouldn’t be able to tell my right from my left if I could. Happily and unexpectedly, some freaders played along…

sellabitmum wink
My superstar sellabitmum because she sent me my first wink.
conscientiousblog wink
The make-up-less wink from ConscientiousConfusion.com and her toddler photobomb of adorableness.
walt wink
The fabulous Walt wink and his lucky puppy.
Katie winks
My sweet sister and her winking chipmunk cheeks.
@MegRSB wink
The @MegRSB Elvis lip curl distracts you from her inability to wink. Genius.
Erica's Son's Winking
Erica told her son to be a pirate and his argh made him a winking master. She’s officially my parenting guru in the most important sense of that word… winking.
Denise wink
Denise’s wink is my favorite because she has decided to never wink again, and she still let me post it. She’s my double-favorite!
Chara wink
As if I should’ve been surprised to get a sassy double wink from my friend Chara.
Abby winking on Benadryl
And this is the hilarious Abby trying to wink on Benadryl. I’m pretty sure she pulled a muscle.
Nicole family wink
And of course, as Nicole as says: “The family that winks together, stays together. Probably.”
Billie RightfromLeft
So this isn’t a wink (obviously) but this is how my friend, Billie, tells her left from her right. I’m not so weird after all.

You should either visit these people’s blogs, high-five them in real life or find friends like them because THEY ARE ALL AWESOME.

When I’m not in love with my freaders and their ability to be ridiculous, I’m becoming more popular by reading and writing elsewhere.


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

  • How Big Is Your Village?: On Richmondmom, I am confronted with possibly drunk young teenagers while out with my kids, and I decide to focus on my family instead of finding someone to tell about the teenagers. Did I do the right thing? What should I do next time?
  • Moms on Breast Cancer: On Circle of Moms and in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, my piece on Cancer Politics was included in a blogger round-up.
  • Halloween Toddler Crafts That Look Cute Even Though Your Kid Did Most Of The Work: On This Blogger Makes Fun Of Stuff, a Halloween craft I did when my kids were toddlers, but I had them do it again to take pictures so this whole post kinda makes fun of itself. However, the craft is still awesome.

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

  • An Open Letter to Ann Coulter: From Special Olympics Blog, John Franklin Stephens’ response to Ann Coulter (again) using the R-word is amazing. Read it. (thoughtful)
  • Halloween DIY: Family Fun Themes: From She Knows, my Halloween costume skills prowess got picked up in their homemade costume roundup. Jessica Watson went with our always-awesome Still-life Painting Family Costume complete with an apple, a banana, a bunch of grapes, a bowl and a large wooden frame. All handmade. (BOOYAH!)
  • The Tonight Show: From Jay Leno, President Obama just after video minute 1:30 makes a fantastic joke about growing up with Donald Trump. (hilarious)

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.

  1. Yay! I’m officially famous. And you’re right…I did pull a muscle. Is it weird that it’s a muscle in my leg, though, and not my face? 😉

    Oh, lookie there! Another wink! 🙂

  2. How do you (and others) not understand the L on the left hand? That’s the easiest way!! Go to shooter position then put the index finger toward the sky. The one that is a capital L is the left! It’s the best method! LOL! I guess I should send a pic!

    1. Although if you read my original post that started all this winking at me business, I long ago decided that only winking one eye made me a demi-god. Of course, I thought I was all alone in my abilities then… now my god-ness is kinda crowded.

  3. That is so awesome! But I think we might need to think up a new word than freaders. I was thinking free-loaders? Free-readers? The word friend didn’t even enter my mine right away. There might be something wrong with me.
