Humor by Sheila Moss

Welcome to the website of Sheila Moss, Tennessee humorist and columnist, writing about the humor in everyday life before it gets away. Funny stuff happens to people all the time and they don't realize it. Sheila looks for humor in ordinary life and tells stories about the crazy things that happen to everyone. 


My refrigerator hates me! I curse the day I bought that thing. I had no choice, or at least not much of a choice. My ancient relic from prehistoric times had finally quit. I needed something new, and I needed it today. FULL STORY





The Natchez Trace Trek

“This looks like fun,” Honey said, reading an email. “Do you want to go on a tour?” It didn’t sound like fun to me, a bus tour of the Tennessee section of the Natchez Trace. I knew what it would be, a busload of senior citizens, that’s what. FULL STORY




The Smudging

Everyone deals with life's little disasters, domestic or otherwise. We may call it luck, karma, fate, juju, God’s will, destiny or a bad hair day.

Recently, I heard that cleansing your house of negative energy can be done by burning sage. FULL STORY




The Credit Card Caper

If you read my column on a regular basis, you will recall that I was shopping for a pair of navy pants a few weeks ago and ended up buying everything else in the store, but no pants. Not easily discouraged, I decided to check out a different store.  FULL STORY





Are You Dressing Your Age?

The fashion police are at it again. This time they want us to tell us how older women are supposed to dress to avoid seeming as if they are trying to look like a teenager. Do Medicare mamas really want to look as if they are still sweet 16?

Of course we do! FULL STORY





The Pursuit for a Pair of Pants

Who would think finding a pair of women's navy dress pants could be so difficult? There are dozens of pairs of black pants everywhere, but navy is a different matter. FULL STORY






I've Been Scalped

I've been scalped. You ladies know what I mean. I have a lousy haircut. My worst nightmare has come true. FULL STORY








Selling the Entertainment Center

"Mom, I want to get rid of the entertainment center in my room. It takes up too much space and is in the way."

"But that is a nice piece of furniture. I paid a lot of money for it only 25 years ago."

"Mom, entertainment centers went out with invention of flat screen television. I don’t want it. FULL STORY



"Why don't you come to St. Louis and visit me?" My sister asked. "I am having surgery for my back in the middle of the month, but I don't have anything to do between Easter and the surgery. If you fly, I can pick you up at the airport." FULL STORY




Another Flat Tire 

"Oh, no! Not again!" 

I had driven my car earlier that morning and it was fine. Now the dashboard message said "low tire pressure." Something had to be wrong. FULL STORY




The Joy of Mom Jeans

I bought a pair of jeans this week. Okay, they are mom jeans. Mom jeans, in case you have been living under a rock, are not your daughter's jeans. They do not hug your hips; they are not low cut; they are not flared at the bottom to enhance your figure; they do not fit skin tight and do not have a designer label.  FULL STORY


Going Green

The main event in my life this week was signing up for a new recycling service. Yes, you heard me right – recycling -- which shows how dull my life is if trash excites me. What can I say? FULL STORY
