Army of Mom

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



One of my favorite movies of all time is Heathers. I can't believe I haven't thought of that as I've answered all the goofy memes about movies I love. I own it on VHS and have it in a box somewhere in my packrat areas.

But, I forgot about it until I saw this.

Two of my favorite lines in the movie:
What is your damage, Heather?
Fuck me gently with a chainsaw.

I say the first one frequently - minus the Heather part - to my children. They dont' get it; they just think it is a mom thing. I saw the latter occasionally when I'm surprised. At the funeral I attended yesterday, the lady's granddaughter was speaking kind words about her and mentioned some of the things her Memaw used to say all the time. I hope my grandkids don't get up in my funeral mass and say "You know, Mimi (because I won't be called Granny or Grandma, etc.) used to say "Fuck me gently with a chainsaw!" and "Goddammit!" whenever she was shocked by something stupid we did.

Remind me to clean up my language. My eldest does frequently.
