Army of Mom

So this is how liberty dies ... with thunderous applause.



It will be another one of those days. Chasing down elusive people and information. Putting out fires. Being in two places at once. And, kissing ass. *insert DEEP sigh here*

I really hate that part of the job. I have to act like a little helper and I really hate that. Oh well. I do enjoy giving the tours and the people who are on them are usually delighted. It is just the execs whose asses you have to kiss.

So much for my giving up cursing. I'll keep trying.

I'm also going to see about designing an orange safety vest that is made out of a stretchy material, maybe a poly/cotton blend of some sort, that is more form fitting. I look like a cow in this safety vest. Maybe I can make them form-fitting and almost like the baby-doll tees. Although that could be really bad. If I make the construction workers stop now to gawk, how much worse would it be if they could actually tell that I have a nice round ass and big boobs? Ha. I just hate the boxy design of the vest. Although, I guess it wasn't really designed for women or to look good. *shrug*

Back to acting like an administrative assistant today. I finished my big project so now my boss has me acting as his personal secretary. Oh well. It could be worse.

    I've got a similar day going on over here. *sigh* Must be something in the air today.... too much pollen or something.

    Oh gees, if I sneeze again I'll die (while talking about pollen). But, my tour was a dud. I had to sit and wait for an hour for the meeting to end, which sucked. Then, we only had 30 minutes to get to the site from the admin building and back. So, we had maybe 15 minutes to show him the terminal. I only managed to show him a fraction of it. *shrug* Whatever.

    Oh my god when did u give up cursing? That's real tough shit right there, I tried it once, 23 minutes, a whole 23 minutes, I was going into spasms whenever I censored myself.

    Cashin, she tries to give it up now and again. It has never worked.

    I gave up "Fuck" for Lent a few years ago. My damn friends kept trying to piss me off so I slip up and use it, made it two out of the 40 days. That's really pretty fucking good for me.

    When I was a daycare teacher assistant, I really had to watch my language. Teach the children proper grammar, and absolutely NO CUSSING!!
    One day, I was in the 3's Room, and got frustrated trying to get a knot out of a shoestring.
    "Oh Puddlefrickets" I said in my very bestest cussing tone of voice.
    The little girl had the biggest, darkest eyes and asked innocently "What does that mean?"
    I said "It's a swear word", just as the knot came loose.
    "You are NOT Supposed to Swear" she declared quite sternly.
    "I Know, but that's one you can say at school" as I finished with tying her shoe.
    The next morning, when her dad dropped her off, he asked me about the swear word you can say at school.
    Aaannnd, It Begins with a P.
    He sounded just like his three-year-old daughter.
    So I said "Puddlefrickets", which caused him to burst out laughing.
    By the end of that day, every child in the room was "cussing" on purpose, and giggling no end. They even asked me to say other cuss words which would be fine at school.
    "Aggravation Proclamation" is adorable when a three year old is booming it across the playground.

    Good point MrsDOF.

    My kids use the Spongebob swear words and it is hilarious to hear my 5-year-old proclaim "tartar sauce" when he messes something up. Fish sticks is another one they use. I used to say Mother Frogger when I was in high school. That was a good one. I'm going to try and use some of those words instead. We'll give it a good old college try.

    And, I bet aggravation proclamation from a three year old is funny.
