So I’m a beta tester.

Small scale stuff but fun nontheless. I’m beta testing for Evernote, Skitch, Aviary, Nova Launcher, and a couple of other Android apps through groups on Google+. It’s easy to do – just look for the beta testing group on Google+, ask to join, then once you’re in, you click on the link in the group that will take you to the beta test sign up, then you’re good to go. If you already have the app installed on your device, it will update it with the beta version rather quickly, at the most an hour later in my experience. If you don’t have the app installed, then you just go ahead and install it, then it will update to beta version. Pretty cool, if you are ok with testing out slightly buggy versions of apps on your device. I have yet to have a major hiccup on my testing devices knock on wood. I enjoy being on the bleeding edge of apps!

But, there are some phrases you should just stop saying. Every time I hear them, I  contemplate a one-way ticket to Tahiti…for me. Alone. All by myself.  For starters, here are five things you should never say to the mother of your children:

1. “I need a couple of minutes to go to the bathroom.” Almost without fail you come home, say hello, kiss me on the cheek, get the kids riled up with excitement to see their daddy and then excuse yourself to go to…
