I TELL YOU WHAT ... I said "this is a goddamn b*tch of an unsatisfactory situation" to a coworker describing work. She hasn't seen the movie but laughed because it's such an apt description of our workplace right now. (Do I get any points for that?) This same coworker's favorite swear word is b*tch so I introduced her to son of a whoresn b*itch.  I admit I find some relief muttering that under my breath.

Another coworker and I always say, "I'll miss you!" even if we are going to the copier and coming back. This often segues into some version of "I wish I knew how to quit you!"

There are so many phrases that I think to myself or sometimes say aloud that I could quote the entire book & movie but there's never enough time, never enough.

This is not very funny, but I find myself clutching at my neck just like Ma Twist did whenever I have to deal with some very irritating person...

Lately when I am sending off a proposal, I include the statement, "Thank you for the opportunity" and I have to stifle a snicker.  ;)

Today we were on the patio watching the cat stalk (but not catch) birds at the bird feeder.  I got to say 'That's some high-class entertainment.'   8)

I was at the wonderful and happenin' Wal-Mart the other day in my rural Indiana town. There were two guys who were loading lawn furniture in a pickup. The one guy said to the other … “It ain’t goin’ nowhere, let it be.” Immediately, I thought …. did you two “he men” watch BBM? I had to smile.  ;D

When I'm driving and look in the side mirror, I think of myself as having the expression that Jack does when he's driving his truck away from Signal and glancing back at Ennis. Only in my case, instead of seeing the love of my life recede in the mirror, I'm just looking at the car behind me.  :-\

My girlfriend is having an affair....she is married, he is single.....so there are many many problems happening, and she talks to me about it, and asks my advice....


I dont know how many times I have said to her...."If you cant fix it, you gotta stand it".......
Being happy doesn't mean everything is perfect.

It means you've decided to see beyond the imperfection

Katie, she could fix it by getting a divorce, couldn't she? And dly, you should have called out, "Harmonica don't sound right either" to see what their reaction would be!
