That is an actual sentence that came out of my mouth this morning. I find myself saying the most ridiculous things on a regular basis, and I am not the only one.
Usually, of course, the ridiculous words are directed to children ('At our house, we don't spit'), but not always. Ever since I started noticing this phenomenon, I hear them everywhere. Consider this one, heard this morning at a brunch party while playing Pin the Nose on Rudolph: 'Help her! Help her! She's blind and pregnant!'
Not that this is relevant, but I won the most gorgeous striped scarf at the Rudolph game. I think I might have inadvertently cheated, though. I used the other players' markers as landmarks. Is that fair? Well, no matter, the scarf is mine. MINE, I tell you! But back to the discussion at hand....
So far, my favorite ridiculous yet totally reasonable statement, made by my friend Jennifer #34,632 (mom to four children), is:
'You! Put down that dog poop and you! give me that knife!'
Do you have any to share? Put them in the comments; I would love to hear them!
UPDATED: I have become what I have sneered at.
