McDonald’s, Kale, Hockey, and Blood Pressure | Seriously??

Dear Kid,

It’s National Blood Pressure Month.

Unfortunately, it’s also soccer season and hockey playoffs which means your father will not be participating in National Blood Pressure Month in the normal keep-your-blood-pressure down tradition.

It’s also National Barbecue Month and National Hamburger Month and National Salad Month.

I’m not sure these things are as well coordinated as they might be.

 If you don't like something change it; if you can't change it, change the way you think about it. ~Mary Engelbreit DearKidLoveMom.comIn other news, Starbucks has a new mini Frappuccino (only 4 billion calories of caffeinated brain freeze) and McDonald’s is serving kale at select locations.

Yep, you heard me. Mickey D is serving kale.

(I’ll give you a moment for that to settle in.)

The golden arches is testing kale in breakfast bowl. In Southern California. Because everyone goes to McD thinking “Hmmm….Egg McMuffin or Quinoa and Kale?”

Except for the alliteration (which I like a lot) the idea of Quinoa and Kale at McDonald’s does nothing for me. I take that back—it makes me slightly queasy, but other than that, nothing.

In case you’re in a betting sort of mood, you can be safe in betting that Girlfriendology and I will not be hopping a plane to Southern California to test the new food offering.

Enjoy lots of new taste and try lots of new things on your trip. (You are not required to try fast food kale if you don’t want to.)

Love, Mom

Sleeping and McDonalds

Drop anchor and stay for a while DearKidLoveMom.comDear Kid,

According to the latest research, teenagers’ bonds with their parents affect their sleep.


If you don’t have a good bond with your parents, you’d be up all night worrying about the lack of bond. And that’s a kind of bond Crazy Glue won’t fix.

The research did not discuss the impact of deadlines, finals, study sessions, interesting sporting events, parties down the hall, important phone calls texts from friends, 8 am classes, unexpected fire drills, or snoring roommates on sleeping, so in my opinion it is flawed research at best.

In other news, McDonald’s had an employee website (McResources—seriously) which provided all sorts of “helpful” information to Mickey D’s employees. Like how much to tip au pairs and fitness trainers (um, really? These folks work at McDonalds. Don’t think they can afford a fitness trainer or an au pair.). Recently (as in a few days ago) the site carefully explained to employees that eating fast food wasn’t a particularly healthy choice. Rumor has it that Ronald lost it and so the company pulled down the entire website. Ya’ think?

Happy Thursday.

Love, Mom
