10 Reasons Tacos Are Way Better Than Other People’s Kids

By  | 

other people's kids suckAh, the sun rises on another taco Tuesday, and the world is a banquet of choices. Will you have tacos al pastor with soft corn tortillas? Tacos al carbon on flour? Or will you go tacos gringos with one of those weird crunchy shells and shredded iceburg lettuce?

Who cares? They’re all delicious. So delicious, in fact, that you may wonder; is there anything that’s better than tacos? As you ponder this age-old question, preferably while eating a delicious taco, you will find that it is likely easier to make a list of stuff that aren’t as good as tacos. If the first thing on that list isn’t “other people’s kids” you’re not as smart as I gave you credit for.

Lots of things besides tacos are better than other people’s dumb kids. For instance, DMV trips. Wisdom tooth extraction. Tax Day. Vaginal itch. But it’s not vaginal itch Tuesday, now is it? No. It’s taco Tuesday! And if Megan Zander forgot to buy taco supplies again, I say we vote her off of Mommyish Island.

1.ย Tacos fit nicely into a trash can if you get sick of their little taco faces.

Unlike other people’s children. They don’t get in there without putting up a fight.

2. Tacos don’t break all of your stuff on play dates.

Other people’s children will break all of your stuff, pee on it, and call you fat, which there mothers will likely find adorable.

3. Your Facebook feed isn’t flooded with pictures of tacos you have no interest in.

Because that’s not a possibility.

4. Tacos don’t teach your kids bad habits.

Tacos will never teach your children that whiney voice you hate that you know they picked up at daycare. Tacos will only instill awesomeness in your kids and make them fucking radical.

5. You won’t regret offering to watch some tacos.

Unlike when you accidentally said you would watch some other dude’s kid, and then learned they weren’t stuffed full of seasoned ground beef.

    #3 because I would be jazzed if my FB feed was flooded with taco photos.

      This reminded me of when Eve would threaten me with the cold shoulder if I didn’t write certain things for her. Miss her already ๐Ÿ™

      Yay! You remembered!
      PS my countertops are almost identical to yours

    • Megan

      July 29, 2014 at 10:51 am

      Do you love them? We got them almost a year ago and I still get excited when I go into the kitchen.

      I like them fine. They were in the house when we bought it. Not what I would have picked, but they look good.
      My dream is to have light cabinets, a gray or white quartz countertop, and a subway tile backsplash. I am obsessed with subway tiles. Alas, I can’t justify tearing up our perfectly nice and very functional kitchen just yet, just because I want subway tile. In a few years maybe.

      Quartz countertops are my jam. Well, they would be if my husband wasn’t all about the crappy black granite that we have. He picks black everything.

    • Spongeworthy

      July 29, 2014 at 11:27 am

      Oof, yea black counters would be a little too dark for me. I love a light, bright kitchen with some splashes of color.

      It is dark, especially considering I went with a pretty dakr wall color because I like color! lol Really, though, my largest problem with the granite we have is that it’s basically just black – no cool character or whatever – just the occasional speck of white or grey. I hate it.

      I’m judging you for your “lite” sour cream. And your seasoning mix… girl, you probably have all the spices in your cupboard! P.S. I’m just mad I’m not having tacos.

    • Spongeworthy

      July 29, 2014 at 11:26 am

      Ha, that’s actually not my pic, but I’m with you. Full-fat or nothing!

      HA! Whoops… I make no excuses for my old-lady-like disqus commenting skills.

    • Megan

      July 29, 2014 at 11:34 am

      Hahahahaha I usually get fat free greek yogurt instead of sour cream at all, the lite is me living a little. And probably do have the spices, but the times I’ve tried to DIY it’s either bland or too much. If you have a DIY spice recipe please, share ๐Ÿ™‚

    • biggerthanthesound

      July 29, 2014 at 11:36 am

      No recipe, just use a lot of the spices. You think you are using too much, but just keep in mind how much powder is in those packets. Still judging on the yogurt ๐Ÿ˜‰

      Sweet paprika
      garlic powder
      Just do even amounts of everything, simple and awesome
      I also add a cube of dark chocolate and a couple teaspoons of gravy powder to the meat while it’s cooking, makes it really rich and yummy…. Tacos/nachos are my jam

      This recipe makes the equivalent of one package of taco seasoning: 2 tbsp chili powder, 2 tsp onion powder, 1 tsp ground cumin, 1 tsp garlic powder, 1 tsp paprika, 1 tsp ground oregano. I double the recipe and mix it in a little glass jar to keep on hand for various recipes… Like taco soup. It is a little spicy for my 5 yo, so I don’t use the whole amount.

    #3 “Oh THESE tackos”
    #9 That gif ticks me off every time I see it. I’m not generally a fan of spanking but my hand gets twitchy when I see a kid smack an animal.

      I feel like that kid is way too old to not know that he is hurting that cat.

    If you don’t like the filling inside the taco, you can just scoop it out and put something else in there, or just choose a new taco altogether. This is sort of frowned upon with children.

    Indigo tacos would have tortillas made out of blue corn. Way better than other people’s indigo children which are made out of personality disorders.

    STOP! I can’t go eat tacos and it’s NOT FAIR!!! You can’t talk about tacos in front of me! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Normally I’m with you, but pretty much anything is better than other people’s kids. So you’re really setting the taco bar low here.

    Bring on the tacos, and get rid of other peoples kids. I would much rather watch tacos.
