The Toughest Job in the World

Wendi Aarons is today's Erma Bombeck - just as funny but she uses words like 'bullshit' - a word that probably never passed through Erma's lips.

Seriously, Is There Anything Easier Than Motherhood?
by Wendi Aarons
It’s been said that motherhood is the toughest job in the world.
And that is complete bullshit.
I’m sorry, but I have to totally disagree with Oprah on this one. Yeah, I said it. Oprah Is Wrong. (Please excuse me while I quickly go lock my front door and grab a baseball bat. There’s a very strong possibility that Gayle King just pulled up to my curb in an unmarked Humvee.)
But I strongly believe that motherhood isn’t the toughest job in the world. What about astronaut? Or neurologist? Or the guy who shampoos Elton John’s dog wigs? Those are hard jobs. We mothers can just sprawl on the couch drinking white wine and watching The Wonder Pets all day. Not that I do that, of course. Well, not anymore.

Thanks so much, Samantha! I'm a huge fan of Erma, so that's about the best compliment I could ever get!
