Martha Stewart doesn't live here


Written on Saturday, April 21, 2007 by Jessica

My mother-in-law gets a Good-Housekeeping type magazine called First. I had to laugh when I read one of its recent tips:

You're about to cozy up to your husband in front of the fire when it hits: a painful bout of heartburn. And there aren't any antacids in sight! Simply combine 1 cup of boiling water and 1 tsp. freshly grated gingerroot, then savor with small sips.
Uh, reality check, people. If I don't have something basic like antacids in my home, what on Earth makes you think I have some fresh gingerroot lying around? I'm so domestically impaired that I doubt I have a cheese grater to grate that gingerroot with.

    Heh ha ha. That's a good one. I love *rolling eyes* when they give you tips like that.

    Alex, if I ever need to borrow some, I'll stop by. It should only take me, what, 20 hours to drive there?

    You guys don't have ginger root ready to grate in your refrigerator when you have a tunny ache? Tsk tsk... for goodness sakes!!

    I do have to admit that I don't either.

    I also am NOT a gallionaire like Martha who probably has as assistant who wipes her butt when when uses the restroom
