It may not be age-appropriate “quite” yet, but I found the AARP blog: 11 Things We Didn’t Know Last Week, and thought it would fun to create my own: 10 Things I Didn’t Know Last Week. Looks like I knew one MORE thing than AARP knew.
1. When selecting a prom dress, be careful when purchasing from Vogue Prom Dresses online. The dress may be unwearable or “not as pictured,” forcing you to scramble to find your 16 year-old another dress, costing upwards of $500. She won’t be crying anymore, but you will.
2. The word discipline, when used in Hebrews 12, means “to train” not “to punish”. I think many of us think it means something altogether different.
3. Michael Jackson, like Tupac, is still releasing music.
4. The term “LARPer,” was used to describe a male, walking around outdoors, dressed as a witch hunter. The acronym LARP stands for Live Action Role Playing.
5. While still scratching my head on that one, my son pointed out that the guy was more-than-likely a COSPLAYer, someone who blends costume and play. I’m still not quite sure I understand the difference between t#4 and #5, but I’m okay with that.
6. Major-league baseball players can choose to have whatever kind of music they want, playing as they walk up to bat. I’d love to have a theme song playing as I walked into Lord & Taylor.

7. The Pentagon has a plan to stop the zombie apocalypse. Did we pay for that?
8. Gugu, short for Gugulethu, means “our pride”. After seeing Belle, I think she is well-suited for her name.
9. MERS, the Middle East Respiratory Syndrome, is a viral respiratory illness that first surfaced in Saudi Arabia in 2012.
10. I DO like green smoothies, but I’m not giving up the coffee. Sorry JJ!
