This one has been going around for a while, so you may have heard about it. It's that thing where people try to bring awareness to the problem of hunger and food stamps (or SNAP benefits as they are now known) and then write about their experiences. And now, celebrities are joining in, by challenging themselves and one another to live on the amount of money afforded under the program—$29 a week.

Unfortunately, the awareness program seems to have jumped the shark.

Mom, is it weird that I like this? ... Is it weird that I think this? ... Is it weird that I don't like that?

I get a lot of this from my 10 year old, a remarkable young girl who loves reading and justice, who doesn't abide bullshit. The overthinker who will probably write that book before she's 18, while I've been talking about writing my book since way before she was born. She's the one who makes things happen. The girl who breaks big concepts down into a sound bite, a skill she developed as a preschooler.
