Things I don’t understand but thanks to Wikipedia now do

Obviously, this list is not comprehensive.  In fact, it’s just one thing.  But I am considering making this a regular column. 

What is Ruth’s Chris Steak House?  I mean, I know what it is, but why on earth does it have that bizarre and difficult-to-say-without-spitting-all-over-myself name?  Well, after years of headscratching, I went to the all-knowing Wikipedia and learned that a woman named Ruth bought a steakhouse in 1965.  The name of the steakhouse she bought?  You guessed it, Dominick’s Steak-and-Shake.  Just kidding.  Chris Steak House.  No possessive apostrophe, apparently.  So now we have the oddly named Ruth’s Chris Steak House, which must have seemed to make sense at the time.  By the way, I think steakhouse should be one word. 

Any other mysteries you’d like me to solve by using Wikipedia?  Let me know because I’m on it!

After an extremely long and entertaining (for those over 6) retirement party, my little Bear has crashed with her little bear. . . . I’ve heard through the office grapevine that some peeps don’t think kids should be at events like this. And that’s a legit opinion. But it’s not mine or Aaron’s so I think we should be all good. . . . Retirements are so bittersweet. This one was a doozy. . . . #wisconsin #friends #ourkidcomeswithus #wiscobarkid #bearonbear #workfamily #humility #sincerity #honesty #love #b&w #eyelashes
A series I’m calling An End of a Era: Skye Had a Limit. Truth be told, she ghosted on Skye and the gang maybe two years ago so this era has been over for some time, but I’m just now getting around to offloading it. And in doing so, I was reminded of both how much we accumulated and in how many forms. The Etsy pegdoll form, in which she asked me to give them little matching string scarves; the tiny little ones Molly insisted on painting because she saw it on YouTube; the pirate series; the Patrollers as poofy rubber squishy friends; and so many more. I love how kids get so into these stories and characters, but the merch is overwhelming. Still, I got a teensy emotional clearing it all out. As you may have guessed. . . . . #pawpatrol #cleaninghouse #growingup #etsy #toomuchstuff #growingpains #decluttering #endofanera
The answer when I Googled why I couldn’t see as well. I’m no doctor, but this seems to check out. #googledoc #visionprobs #over40
Somehow this pic disappeared from my feed! I cannot stand for such an injustice. The best breakfast sandwich in Madison must be seen and heralded. Blueberry jalapeño jam?!? Who knew?! @ancorakingst apparently. #madisoneats #sandwiches #breakfastsandwiches #sandwichesofinstagram #sandwichesofwisconsin #sandwichesofmadison #ancoracoffeehouse
