Conversations with a Neurotic Dog

HH:  Did you hear that? Me: Hear what? HH:  That!  That noise. Me: What noise? HH:  It sounded like a puff of air. Me: Yes.  You farted. HH: I did not.  That's ridiculous.  Wait!  There it is again!

Stop Oversharing, I Was Only Being Polite

So today we came back to the office after a long holiday weekend.  I settled into my daily routine quickly, albeit begrudgingly.  I lamented not being independently wealthy and not being a princess.  I reviewed emails, worked on projects which I didn't care about on Friday and otherwise made myself productive and useful.  They like … Continue reading Stop Oversharing, I Was Only Being Polite

Talkin’ Dirty

Ever seen this? Yeah me too.   I will readily admit my giggle of delight the first time I saw it referencing Jersey girl 'tude.  Since then I have seen it applied to every, and I do mean every person. Wait!  I'm not done yet.  Every person...and I've seen it for every ethnicity, sports team, hobby, city, state, … Continue reading Talkin’ Dirty

Apparently This Is An Option I don't mean to judge, especially my sisters out there... But are you kidding me?  What dipstick looked at this option and said "Hey!  This sounds awesome!!!?????..." I'm going back to bed to mourn the collective "DUH" that seems to be running amuck and abroad right now.
