Cross-Country Connections: Ridiculous

Cross-Country Connections is a Biodork weekly blog entry dedicated to telling stories in pictures of three family members – me, my sister and Mom – living in very different locations across the country. Every week we choose a different theme and then take or contribute a personal photo that fits the theme. This week’s theme is Ridiculous.

From Erin in Takoma Park, Maryland:

At Irish Channel Pub in DC, not only did someone bring their newborn to a bar; they promptly let it chill out on its own while refilling their beer.

From Mom in Carbondale, Illinois: 

CCC Ridiculous MomThe myriad of things one could say about this ridiculous picture is mind boggling.

From me in Minneapolis, Minnesota: 

CCC Ridiculous Brianne (724x1024)Wait, wait. The sexist “women think cars are scary” message isn’t what’s ridiculous. The really ridiculous thing is that this is copyright 2002.

      Hah! That’s what I was going to say.

      When Eldest (now 20-something) was wee, I used to bring him to the outdoor patio of a local beer house to hang with my friends. As a young, single mom, sometimes that was my only chance to socialize with grownups that week. It was a tossup of what’s worse: bringing toddler to a bar for a few hours in the early evening or sitting bored and lonely in an empty house with my brain quietly eating itself.
