Humor by Sheila Moss

Welcome to the website of Sheila Moss, Tennessee humorist and columnist who makes the ordinary seem extraordinary by the way the story is told.

The rest of the country can only look on in wonder as the Northeast panics over a snow storm. "Aren't they used to snow?" We wonder. It snows there all the time. Do a few extra inches really make much difference? They have snow plows, snow scrapers, salt, cinders, snow blowers, and snow shovels galore.  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


Cheap vs. Thrifty

I've watched several episodes of a TV show called "Extreme Cheapskates." Cheapskate is hardly an adequate word for people who are so cheap they find a way to reuse bath water to cut down on the water bill.  FULL STORY





Do You Like Chocolate?

My man is a chocoholic. I suppose I should have figured this out when we went on our first date to the Hershey chocolate factory. You can no longer tour the actual factory, but instead you go through a simulation somewhat like a ride at an amusement park. I will say that chocolate manufacturing really smells delicious, though. FULL STORY




The Runaway

"They hate me around here," said Misty the Cat. "I am going to run away from home. They will be sorry for not feeding me Fancy Feast." It was not long after that that Misty's human opened the door to look out. As soon as the door was cracked, the cat charged from behind and ran out into the pre-dawn darkness. FULL STORY



Home Tweet Home

The frost killed all my flowers and only a few hardy survivor plants struggled in the cold winter ground. Soon, they too would yield to the cold. Winter birds scurried around the bird feeder looking for food. It was depressing to look out my window, but I had an idea.  FULL STORY





Scarecrow Interview

Here I am, standing out in the middle of a muddy cornfield trying to interview a scarecrow. Pumpkins are more popular at this time of the year, but, unfortunately, the Great Pumpkin was not available due to a previous commitment. 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






Hoarders' Heaven

My joy over having a clean house was short lived after cleaning the cabinets, closets, garage and anything else that was cluttered. I soon realized that the downstairs was only a minor part of the mess driving me crazy. I think I must have an obsessive-compulsive disorder. FULL STORY



This Gnat is Making Me Crazy

This gnat is making me crazy Every time I sit down at the computer, this gnat flies between me and the screen, right in my face. It is really hard to type and swat at a gnat. I end up with a lot of left-handed words like sdcftfa (swat) xxsstr (swat) fdfsee.  FULL STORY
