There's something in the water

A couple of weeks ago I got a job at shoppers drugmart. I work mostly night shifts 6pm-12am and let me tell you it has been an eye opener. So far it has been like watching a parade of stereotypes. From about 10pm on the only people in the store are women buying tampons and chocolate, men buying condoms and sports drinks and sick people buying cold and flu drugs. The best one was the couple that came in to buy a pregnancy test and condoms. Can you say oopps?

Tonight was a little different, in the last four hours of my shift i sold about 10 pregnancy tests. by the end of the evening I wanted to go home and check the calender. We all Know that these things are contageous. Watchout ladies there's something in the water.

I love the word 'but'. It is the word everyone uses to say what they really mean. Dr. Phil said when you use the word "but" it means forget everything I just said what I actually meant was....

Some of my favorite but phrases are:

  • I don't want to be a nusance but,... translation, pay attention to me!!!
  • I Know you don't want my opinion but,... translation, of course you want my opinion, I know everything
  • I don't want to be a nag but,...translation, if you had just listened to me in the first place we wouldn't be having this conversation
  • He's really nice but,...translation, I would rather spend my evening cleaning my bathtub drain than waste another minute with him

What's your favorite but phrase?

Boys Will Be Boys

For all those who belive that gender is learned behavior and not genetic i would like you to meet my son, Monkey Boy. My son, from the time he was a fetus, was all male. He likes to run and jump all the time, he loves mighty machines, and last night he started displaying the typical tendencies of older males. While my husband was watching t.v my son came in and sat down next to him. On the screen was a beautiful skinny girl wearing a bikini. Monkey boy looks up and says "that girl (pause for effect) is smart!"

What is with boys????

I wish I were smart.

By the way Monkey boy turns 3 next week.

I don't know what it is but when you do something new, something spontaneous, it's always more fun when you od it with someone watching. Riding a new bike, better when youyr friends are watching. Getting your ears pierced, better when your friernds are doing it with you. Getting your first kiss, better when you tell every one of your friends about his slobbery lips.

This is Missy's new blog and two of her friends (myself and A) are here to watch and witness the deflowering of Missy.

How many times does one have to listen to someone say"you need a blog. Do you want a blog? Get a blog!" befor you succumb to peer presure. I lasted about a month. So here i am with my very own blog, get ready world here i come.
