I'm craving pizza right now. Bad bad. The only thing that keeps me from ordering a veggie & meat loaded pizza is the 10lbs I've recently lost and Christmas peeking around the corner. I did remarkably well over Thanksgiving, but then again I wasn't at my Maw Maw's long enough for her to force feed me stuffing, turkey, cake and pie. You guys know what I'm talking about:
Maw: "Did you get enough to eat hun?"
Me: (Getting up from table) "Yes ma'am. The stuffing, turkey, corn, peas, cranberry sauce, potato salad, macaroni and cheese, and roll you suggested I get a plate full of was plenty."
Maw: "Well how about I fix you a piece of cake then?"
Me: "No Maw Maw, the last bite of roll I just had hasn't even hit the end of my throat yet. I'll get some later."
Later (as in 20 minutes)
Maw: "Jill, let me fix you a piece of that pie you like so much..."
After a little arguing, I, along with the other members of my family, give in to her and crack smiles at each other when she serves us each a plate with not only that piece of pie, but a piece of lemon cake, a chess square, a hello dolly and some chocolate covered pretzels as well.
So yeah, having a boyfriend and jumping from home to home can be a lifesaver. Or should I say, a calorie saver?
What was I talking about? Oh yes, pizza...
I want some.
Moving on. People that say "Huh". I bet you are thinking "Huh?"
I understand people pick up words and use them to death until the word's impact is no longer there. For example, a lot of bloggers use the word "tard" which I think is pretty funny but know will soon fade and a new word will be developed.
My boyfriend's new word is Huh. As in "Huh? I couldn't hear you."
Yeah Babers, you know where I'm going with this one.
J has recently taken up this word and uses it most frequently. We'll be having a conversation, a completely simple and understandable conversation... there will not be any blaring tv in the background or radio playing, there are no loud children to try to tune out... just me and him having a conversation merely a few feet away from each other.
Goes a little something like this:
Me: "So you have two company parties then?"
J: "Yes. The one here and the one back at my place."
Me: "Do you want to go to both?"
Me: "I said do you want to go to both?"
J: "Yeah I'd like to."
Me: "Do I need to dress up for both?"
*silence" At this point I peer at J. I realize what he is doing and decide that I could just save myself time and breath and repeat what I've said, but decide that I'm going to nip it in the bud (WHAT does that saying mean anyway??? Nip it in the bud?)
Me: "Huh? What do you mean, Huh?"
J: (stares at me)
Me: "Like Huh I didn't hear you or Huh I don't understand?"
J: "Well, I -"
Me: "What were we just talking about?"
J: (he realizes he's saying this word as a reflex, like someone would throw Like or You Know in randomly.) "We were talking about my Christmas parties."
Me: "Mmm hmm. And I asked if I needed to dress up for both."
He then answers the question with a smug little smile on his face. Yeah, its funny. BUT, after a while of repeating myself I start to feel like a broken record.
I'm always bragging about J and posting all kinds of sweet, happy, uplifting things. Well hello, I blogged way before I was in this relationship with J AND I KNOW how much bloggers enjoy something with a sarcastic flare and get bored with all things shiny. So, I had to share. I'm sure J won't mind. (I love you?)
