Time for a bit of gratefulness, courtesy of KMama’s weekly Thank You Very Much. It’s a fun way to get that bit of aggravation out – better than egging someone’s car or knocking their garbage can over. And probably less jail time too…
To the woman behind the Lancome counter – yes I’ve tried what you were trying to sell me. I let you give me the spiel for 30 seconds, then told you that the ridiculously expensive lipstick lasts all of four minutes before needing to be reapplied. You actually had the nerve to tell me that it was the long-lasting stuff and I was wrong.
When I again told you that I was constantly reapplying it, you ended your sales pitch with “you must lick your lips a lot”. Yeeeeeah… Not buying it (literally). Thank You Very Much.
To Gymboree. Yes your stuff is unbelievably cute.
You do realize we’re in a recession, right? Thank You Very Much.
(ps – I heart your little boy clothes. Feel free to send me a gift card to make up for my public blog drooling :)
To the big truck that kicked up the rock that smashed my foglight, Thank You Very Much.
Actually – it was pretty darn funny to see Mr. Daddy duck and then look all over the windshield for the crack he’d heard… expensive entertainment, no?
To the kid who has refused to eat anything without peanutbutter lately and the Daddy who is enabling his habit… Thank You Very Much.
To the online shoe store that decided to cancel the 15% off code that was issued three hours earlier – Thank You Very Much.
I appreciate that you did that AFTER I put an order in for shoes that I can’t find anywhere else.
(Though to be fair, I whined about it and they “found” another 15% off code once I said to cancel it if they weren’t going to honor 3-hour old offers :)
To the husband who is protesting an upcoming family photo session… Moms trump Dads on this issue, Thank You Very Much. If they didn’t, the only proof grown children would have of their family time would consist of photos of daddy with a dead deer.
Just wear what I put out for ya, show up, smile, and consider it my Christmas present, k?
(I promise only to post the flattering ones of Mr. Rockin Hottie Magnum Daddy! And wait till you hear who is taking them! :)
Alrighty – that’s enough gratefulness for one day… head on over to KMama’s for some good readin!
