WEIRDNESS

We may not have it all together, but together we have it all.

As Piper Bayard would say, the end is near, and we deserve it. A man was recently arrested for riding his unicycle across a bridge southeast of Houston naked. Click this link to see the article and photos and a video clip. (Can I do this in a family-friendly site?)

Another article involving strange behavior reports 12 percent of younger moms use cellphone during sex.

Some moms are more into romancing the phone than romancing their mates: 12 percent use their phones during sex, according to a survey.

It takes a bit of imagination — maybe too much, really — to picture that scene, much less the logistics. And it does beg at least a few follow-up questions: Are those moms texting, talking or playing “Words With Friends” during such intimate moments? And if they’re talking, are they hands-free, er, that is, wearing a Bluetooth headset?

Those are answers we’ll never learn from the otherwise informative “Moms & Media 2,” a survey by Meredith Parents Network, which publishes several magazines including “Parents” and “American Baby.”

“When we saw the results we were wondering the same exact thing,” a spokesperson for Meredith Parents Network told us. “Unfortunately we don’t have any anecdotal data about the how’s or the why’s.”

The tech-centered behavior comes from mothers between the ages of 18 and 35 — dubbed “Millennial moms,” born between 1977 and 1994. “There is no part of their lives that is media free,” the company said in a statement.

    OK, you have picked some winners here today, David. I don’t know whether to laugh or cry – as usual, I chose the former 😉

    My hubs is always ranting about too much technology ruling the lives of people in that age group. We live amidst college student off-campus housing, so you can imagine the things we see. One day a kid nearly got run over crossing the street in this sleepy town because she was texting and not looking where she was going. Sometimes I long for ‘the old days’.

  3. The only reason you should use your cell phone during sex is if the batteries on your vibrator are dead and you put your phone on mute as a replacement for said toy. Neither of which, I would ever do, mind you. 😉

    For some reason, this does not surprise me. After all, I have heard women continuing to talk on their cell phones while doing their bathroom business in public restrooms. 😀

  7. Yes, David, it is attention getting. Cell phones are a ‘no’ at the dinner table. That might give you a clue as to where they are the rest of the time!
