Word Butter: Fast food double-downs are making me crazy

I saw in my Twitter feed that Taco Bell recently introduced its Naked Chicken Chalupa. If you've been under a rock and somehow missed all the silly television commercials, here's what you've missed: Instead of the traditional tortilla shell, it's a fried chicken shell, wrapped around lettuce, tomatoes and cheese, along with some avocado ranch dressing. Yep. This thing is 4 ounces of marinated, white meat chicken, seasoned with Mexican spices and shaped like a taco.

Word Butter: Lessons Learned from a Little Creative Wall Art

Kids grow up so fast. Too fast, in fact. As I cleaned house this past weekend, I looked at a picture of my niece, who's now 11, which is stuck to my refrigerator with a couple of magnets.
