Pinch-hitting: Uncomfortable truths by Jan Moyer

I've never met Jan Moyer (@moyermama) in real life. She's Canadian! As a matter of fact, we haven't even known each other on social media for that long. 

But some people, when you find them, you just connect. And in Jan, I've found a real soul sister. She makes me laugh out loud (if you're not following her on Twitter, you're missing out on a daily treat), and we're constantly echoing each others' Tweets.
I KNEW that she'd be the perfect Canadian! addition to our lineup of pinch-hitters with Uncomfortable Truths, and Internet, she didn't disappoint. When I read her email of submissions, I grinned from ear to ear. And I bet you will, too. Here they are!

1. I read an entire book and pronounced Phoebe “Fobe” the whole time. Later learned it was Fee-Bee. Ditto on the character “George” from Nancy Drew. I still say “Gee-orge” in my head.

2. When I was home on my first maternity leave, I timed my lunch so I could watch “Arthur” (yes, of PBS and TVO fame) at noon most days. Baby laid on his blanket while I dined on leftovers or a grilled cheese and caught up on Arthur, D.W., Buster and all their friends.

3. I have never eaten cereal with milk. I have a bowl of cereal and a glass of milk. Take a bite, take a sip. That’s how it should be done and I’m proud to say I’m the first one to discover that.

4. When any form or survey asks me our annual household income, I always check “prefer not to say” because I prefer not to say that I don’t know.

5. One summer I was a bank teller and it was the most stressful job I have ever had. I was so tired of never balancing my till that one afternoon I took a twenty from my own wallet just to even things out. 

Now, go follow @moyermama on Twitter and on her blog! (Only 192 Twitter followers ... that's SHAMEFUL, Internet! Go get those numbers up.)

We make fun of her every time she eats cereal at work.
