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 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






Home on the Kitchen Range

I give up, I tell you. I give up. I'm sure everyone has things that go wrong, but I seem to attract problems like the living room sofa attracts cat hair. When the kitchen range stops working, it is aggravating, especially when said kitchen range is only three years old. 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 donít want it. FULL STORY



Life from the Good Side

You are probably sick of hearing me rant and would like to read something pleasant for a change. Problems are often so aggravating that it is hard to get past them. But, rather than tell you about everything that has gone wrong lately, I am going to talk about the things that have gone right. FULL STORY





Wild Women of the Succulent Something

"We can go to a retreat for women when you come visit," my sister said. "I went last year and it was fun.  You can join a group on Facebook for the details. I will send you an invitation." 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



Life In a Rut

Not much to do this Friday except wait for the dishwasher repair man to come. My life is so exciting lately that the big event of the day is waiting for a repair guy. Bor-ing. Other than the dog trying to eat him alive, there is not much I can say about his visit. He had a part left over when he finished, but promised to come back if he figured out what it was for. FULL STORY



Fighting the Frizzes

My hair was a mess -- I had the frizzes. "I look like Broom Hilda in the comics," I thought, trying to smooth it down without success. I knew what caused it, but I didn't know how to fix it. FULL STORY




Tax Forms, Tax Forms, Tax Forms

It is only February and I should not be worrying about income taxes until at least the first of April, but I always start biting my nails at the end of January when the tax forms start coming in the mail. I absolutely hate tax season. I don't fully understand what can be deducted and what cannot. It is going to be another nerve wracking year. I can tell already. 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 Ė recycling -- which shows how dull my life is if trash excites me. What can I say? FULL STORY
