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. 


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. 




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




The Lost Purse

Have you ever done something so dumb, so stupid, so unlike you that you can’t believe you did it? But you did and there is nothing you can do now except try to do better the next time.

It’s a long story, but it started like this:



MEMO: To All Cats

It has come to my attention that many house cats are content with staying inside and do not know how to escape the constrictive nature of a life indoors. Therefore, as an experienced feline with many breakout skills and years of practice, I feel it is my duty to share some of the techniques I have learned.  FULL STORY


Pumpkin Eater

Autumn has arrived, time for falling leaves, apple cider, and especially for those orange orbs that seem to invade all aspects of life at this time of year… pumpkins. I think pumpkins are great as a fall decoration and make a lovely jack-o-lantern. But pumpkins are not content to remain where they belong. They have jumped the garden wall. 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



A Woman's Work

Since I retired from my job, I've been a virtual whirlwind of activity. I don't know why I am in a hurry. After all, as Honey keeps reminding me, ”You can do it tomorrow.”  I think my many years of hurry and stress has become a habit and carried over to my home life. I don't know how to slow down. FULL STORY



Love It or List It

My daughter recorded a bunch of TV shows for me to watch that she thought I might like. One of the shows with multiple episodes was called "Love It or List It." A real estate agent tries to find a new dream home within a budget and persuade a couple to move while a decorator completely remodels their old home to entice them to stay. After watching a dozen episodes, I began to notice all the things wrong with my home that needed changing in order for me to love it.  FULL STORY
