So I don't have alot of time today, but I promise a longer post tomorrow. I have to go into town in the midst of this blizzard because both Lu and Hubby have dr. appts. And since I can only get Hubby to the doctor like once a year, no way am I canceling! So instead of my planned post which has been unceremoniously bumped to tomorrow's schedule, I give you the following conversation~
Picture this...I'm sitting here on the computer diligently reading and commenting on blogs. Sean is drinking coffee and watching the Today show on the TV in here. Lu is in my bathroom, curling her hair. Now, my bedroom is directly across the hall from this room and the bathroom is located just off the bedroom. Therefore, it is possible to have all three of us in the conversation (if we shout. which we often do).
Sean: Wow. Gerard Butler got fat.
Me: What??! No way.
Sean: Look! Quick...look at the TV.
Me: (twisting around in my chair like a pretzel to view the screen. A picture of Gerard from 300 and a picture of "fat" Gerard. Gone were the rock-like washboard abs and add some love handles) Oh he doesn't look that bad! Besides I still love him.
Lu: (shouting from the bathroom) what about Gerard?!
Me: they think he got fat.
Sean: He did get fat.
Lu: So? He probably just took a break from working out. He'll lose it.
Me: Yeah, it was the holidays, everyone gains some weight. They should cut him some slack.
Lu: Exactly. Poor Gerard.
Me: Besides, he's still got that awesome accent and those killer eyes.
Me: I could work that extra weight off him no problem!
Me: I just totally killed this conversation, didn't I? My bad.
Lu: Um yeah. Because I was totally picturing me & him and then you...and um...yeah. Eew.
Sean: I was picturing me & him and um...oh shit...did I say that out loud?
*convulsive giggling on all parts*
Sean: (shouting) what's that Dad? You need me to hammer something? Monster trucks and football!!*
Sean: Oh...look Jessica Simpson got fat too.
Me: (once again with the pretzel antics) Yep. She's fat.
Lu: Oh yeah. She is.
Ever wonder why we willingly cut men slack and not women?? Guess we're mean girls.
*Now, for the record, Sean is not into guys like that. Well, not as far as I know, and I wouldn't have a problem with it. He just says things like that for the laugh. And the laugh is NOT at the expense of gay people. The laugh is at the expense of men, who after saying something that might be deemed homosexual, suddenly launch into macho displays of how manly they actually are. I just wanted to set the record straight. No pun intended. My gosh...I just keep making it worse...I'm going to quit now...and just hope everyone gets a laugh out of it...
