What I Meant to Say - 7th Edition

Chief is out on town boozing it up drinking diet Dr. Pepper flirting with the gay waiters in hopes of scoring an extra dessert hanging out on the lido deck writing blog posts in her head swimming with the dolphins on her cruise. But that's no excuse not to have fun while she's away. That's right boys and girls! We can still have fun with....




Want to join in the fun? Just write your post and then click the tag to link up. Meet new friends in this opportunity for group griping therapy. Oh, and Chief promised to bring back a bottle of rum pretty sea shell for everyone who participates this week. 


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~



When we were at the grocery store last week, the bag boy noticed my husband’s conference championship ring. 
Bag Boy: "Wow. That’s cool!"
Prince: "It’s from the last time we won the conference championship."
BB: "Man. I don’t even remember when that was."
Prince: "It was back in 1991."
BB: "Oh, yeah...I wasn’t born yet."
Cashier chimes in: "Me neither."
What I said: "Oh, you young kids are making me feel old."
What I meant to say: "Listen here you pimply faced hormonal mall rats...shut it before I call your mom and get your curfew changed to 9:00 pm."

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
When I went to the doctor for UTI general check up, the nurse took my pulse and said, 
Nurse: “Wow. Are you an athlete or something?”
Me: *insert puzzled look* “Ummm...no. But I married one and I had lunch with LL Buff Chick last week. Why?”
Nurse: “Your pulse is very strong.”
What I said: “Oh really? Hmm. Ok...great.”
What I meant to say:  “Really? You asked me if I was an ATHLETE?! Weren’t you the one who just took my weight today right after VALENTINES weekend? Is it opposite day? Is this Candid Camera? (Do you youngins even know what that is?) I love you so much! Will you marry me?” *kissy kissy*


Oh wait...that marriage proposal was totally inappropriate. But she has no idea how happy that made me considering the “milestone” birthday I will be avoiding in a few weeks and the Jack and Jill grocery duo who felt it necessary to snicker about not being born when we were in college.


Ok, you guys know the drill. Tell us what YOU meant to say and then link up. Go visit some of the other linker uppers too.

general check up uh?

Maybe those drapes needed to be hemmed a little sooner, huh?

At least u know ur heart is beating strong for the summer 'lympics

Tina said...

Kids...I would have went with it and actually said it, would have been good shock therapy.

carissajaded said...

Hmmm so you have a strong pulse, I'd run with that and not question it. I have no idea what it means, but I'm thinking you're a superhero of sorts right now...

Shana said...

Man, there are workers not born till after 91?? I feel old now too.

mintifresh said...

Sounds like those young 'uns needed a good ole' fashion wuppin'!

I think the 'strong pulse' comment was a total come-on!

Trac~ said...

I was already 23 yo in 1991 - ha! That "are you an athlete" is a new come on line I've never heard before - I think she was totally sizing you up! HA! Have a great day! :o)

Kmama said...

"Is it opposite day?" <----- LMAO!! That is hilarious.

Thanks for the laugh.

Shell said...

They weren't born yet? Yikes.

I look at some of these kids and get scared that they are old enough to drive. They look like babies!

Hissyfits & Halos said...

Evil bag boy. That sounds like something my daughter would tell me. The brat.

On the drive to school today, she made a comment about being so tired. I said, "Just wait till you're 30!" She smarted off, "OH, GAWD! MY FACE!!!!" (she's grounded, now) hehe

FYI, I was 15 in '91. ;)

Sara @ Domestically Challenged said...

...I don't know...you give off that athlete vibe. I am TOTALLY avoiding the doctor for about 6 years after my vacation. No weighing in for me!!

Evonne said...

You should go back and show your athletic skills out on the bag boy and cashier! Stupid teenagers

Brittney said...

LOL i think cashiers and bag boys should be trained on appropriate conversation at the register lol

Michelle Pixie said...

Stopping by from Kmama's and I am dying over the comment you left over at her place. You are a hoot!!

I need to find a doctors office like yours and I would totally marry that nurse! ;)

VandyJ said...

I graduated from High school in 1991. Gah--my 20 year reunion is next year--LALALA(fingers in the ears)I'm not listening, I'm not that old, no way not me--LALALA.

Meeko Fabulous said...

Is it opposites day she says . . . buah ha ha! :) And yes, I do remember Candid Camera! Cause I'm an old fart.

Adoption of Jane said...

Dayum Adolescents!! You should of took them both over your knee and spanked them with the Prince's Championship ring!

Margaret said...

You should have kicked there asses Princess. I would have never said anything like to anyone. It is just rude!

Terry said...

Shit...I was 24 in '91...that sucks!
Did you tell that nurse you don't have to be an athlete to have a strong pulse??? You're a princess for God's sake!!

Oka said...

My doctor tries to make me feel good about my self no matter what when I come in for a visit. Like if I failed to accomplish something, she will say, "Sweetie, look I am a single mom of two teenage girls. I know how hard it is to keep up with a "woman's schedule".... I'm not got place blame on you one little bit."

A few of the nurses try just as hard to make you feel good.


Just remember, those pimply faced mall rats will one day be our current age, and that next generations will be making snide remarks in their favor. Full circle

The Blue Zoo said...

Getting old sucks huh?!

I dont think the marriage proposal is inappropriate at all. Whenever someone tells me I look young I just about kiss them!

Ed Adams said...

You should have just bended those young punks over your knee, Grandma.
