I felt a tad flattened for a while after “Daphne Dishes” wasn’t picked up. Throw in some personal stuff and feeling father time was sitting on my face– and not in a good way– I got discouraged. Lost my creative way. Fell into “what’s the point?” and my health insurance costs a fortune. I gotta get a job at Hertz. Plus, the 2016 election and all that followed. America, how did we get out of bed?
But, after my Siddhartha like journey ( i.e. networking, talking to casting directors, agent, etc and most importantly my mother) I realized the parade may have kept moving, but I can jump on a float. The hard part is I have to build my own float.
When I thought about what means the most to me it’s 1) my kids 2) comedy 3) political issues 4) food ( 2-3-4 shift positions often). To that end in addition to this being coolmom.com it is also coolfoodmom.com and coolactivistmom.com. Because as my kids get older they still take a shit ton of my time, however I can’t exploit them as easily. They are on to me. Plus, I remembered my breasts aren’t just milk bags and I do have nice curvy hips and oh, yeah, there is a woman there.
I do really miss Daphne Dish’s, so I will do my best with my limited resources and lack of production value and reboot some cooking, comedy, sass. Here is my first attempt.
