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. Stay a while and enjoy the funny side of life.


The Two Table Tangle

We won the prize for bad restaurant customers tonight. It was not intentional, honestly. It just sort of happened. MORE




Goodbye 4th of July

Dear Humans,

I just wanted to let you know that I am very upset with you. I do not think it was nice to laugh when I was afraid of the fireworks on the 4th of July. After all, it was an extremely loud noise and I'm not used to having a war going on in the front yard. For all I knew, it could have been terrorists trying to blow up my doghouse. MORE






Sleepy Head

I can't believe I slept until 11 AM this morning. What has come over me? I am usually up at 5 o'clock sharp and on the Interstate headed for town by 6 o'clock. At 11 o'clock, I would be eating lunch. I thought my watch was wrong when I looked at the time. But if it was wrong, the clock had the same problem. MORE



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.  MORE



Easy (for some people) Cheesecake

Have you ever looked at the price of a cheesecake in the grocery store? It is absolutely ridiculous. You can easily make your own. In spite of many previous attempts to cook and the disasters that ensued, this recipe is so easy that anyone can do it. MORE





Road Rage at Wal-Mart

I've seen old people ride around Wal-Mart in those electric carts with big baskets. It sort of looked like fun. I never had used one, not even after my knee surgery, but my back has been really bothering me lately, especially when I walk -- very especially when I walk all over a big box store like a Wal-Mart Supercenter. MORE




A Message from the Car

Dear Vehicle Owner:
I think it is about time that we get a few things clear, and I don't mean my windshield. I am not satisfied with the way you are treating me.  First of all, you are driving me too fast. I am not a sports car. I thought for sure you were going to rear end that little Subaru in front of us the other day. It was so afraid it changed lanes. Please slow down! I do not want to end up in the junkyard before my life is half over. MORE



If I Had More Time

I could chase dust bunnies under the bed and polish furniture until it shines. I would not have to hope no one comes by to visit because the floors are dirty, and I can't remember the last time the windows were cleaned.   MORE





The Seventy-Year-Old Car

Clackity, clackity, clackity. "What is that noise?" I wondered. No, the left-turn signal was not on this time. I could not tell where the sound was coming from. When the car stopped, the noise stopped too. "It will probably go away," I thought. "It's nothing." MORE




The Wrong Day

It has finally happened - dementia. I knew I was getting old but I didn't expect to lose my mind so soon.

I had a dental appointment the other day, my 6 months checkup. I had it on my calendar. I always write things down like that so I don't forget. MORE
