This is the contest I entered. I *know* I am better that #2 (whose voice totally cracks on the high note at the end) & #5 (although she does accompany herself...she gets points for that). #3 kicks my butt, & I didn't listen to the guys.

*sulk*

I might have automatically gotten disqualified cause I didn't sing "3-5 minutes." That, or I might have frightened them with my dorkiness.

OK....there's something I've always wondered.

Why are people so sweet to kids & so not to adults?

I am thinking of mainly doctors, nurses, hospitals, etc.

I have aged a bit now, but for a while, when I was 24-27 years old (ironically, I think my face finally started to age when my mom died when I was 27), people thought I was anywhere from 12-18. I once, when I was about 22, walked up to check in at a airline ticket counter. The lady behind the counter got her baby-googly voice goin' on, & said, "And will be traveling alone today, sweetie?" She was very embarrassed when I told her I was 22. Another time on a plane, I was sitting in the exit row. The stewardess saw me, did a double take, & said, "Are you old enough to sit in this row?" I was dumbfounded, & said, "Gee, how old do you have to be?" She said, "16." I laughed & said, "Yeah, I am old enough." I was 25.

My point is this....whenever I have been in an ER or hospital, the nurses were always really sweet to me. When I started to look older, that kinda stopped. I have watched nurses & doctors with children, & they are so calming, sweet, patient, & gentle. When you are an adult, they tend to not be so nice.

Why is that? Why are kids worthy of HUMAN KINDNESS, & when you hit 18, you are no longer worthy of that? When you are hurt or ill, it doesn't matter HOW old you are....you are scared, & sometimes alone. Hospital personnel should treat EVERYONE with human kindness, not just kids. In my opinion, kids are no more special than adults. Why would they be? Granted, it seems a little more unfair when a 2 year old dies of cancer, but should we feel much less sympathy for a 30 year old who dies of cancer?

Why can't people show human kindness to people of all ages, not just reserve kind treatment for kids?

Yeah....I should be at Haunt right now.

I called in.

I worked on "American Dreams" again today. Let's see, let's do the scale thing. $56 to get smacked, abused, bruised, achy feet, for 8 hours on my feet.....or $125 for 6 hours there, probably 30-45 minutes MAX of actual "work," watching a TV show get made, sitting in a chair & reading PEOPLE magazine the rest of the time. Hmmmm....tough decision.

Despite that, I STILL felt guilty. Can't help it. I feel I made a commitment to them, crappy job or not. But basically, it comes down to a wise financial decision. I am SO broke, I had to dig money out of my truck cushions & my couch at home to scrounge JUST enough (I mean, literally, it came out to $8.65, & I think I had $8 in bills & maybe a dollar in change) to get KITTY LITTER. I had run so low, Ernie was peeing on the floor (he's really picky about it being deep).
I can't buy groceries. I was scarfing that free craft services food, taking some "to go," even. I am THAT poor. My grandmother told me to buy my tickets home for Xmas, & she'd send me a check. HAHAHAHAHAH...tix are like $450!!!! Riiiight. So anyway, my point is, $125 compared to $56....yeah. No real choice to make there. Sorry Knott's.
