It’s one thing to get the last word, but then there are famous last words. And you can quote me:
I only need to get a couple of things at Costco– This is not possible; I’ve tried! There are no couple of things at Costco, only huge numbers of things. I’ve managed once or twice to get out in the $30 range, but most often I go in for a rotisserie chicken, some avocados and one other item and come out with: giant boxes of cereal; a huge bags of peppers/ lemons/ mangos/grapes/lettuce/broccoli/insert other produce; several loaves of bread; new books for my pile (even though I really should buy them at our wonderful local book store); almonds; beef jerky; new socks; stamps… Kaching! $300
For the record– There are lot of things on the record.
Oh! I could never finish this whole thing! – Don’t say this; just don’t. Chances are you will finish it, and then everyone will know that you ate a whole lot of something.
I’m only going to eat two of these chocolate chip cookies/brownies/ insert sweet thing (I’d never be foolish enough to say ‘one’) – It’s not going to happen. If I make a batch, and it’s sitting in the kitchen, all bets are off. I’m going to eat them… all. And blame the kids.
I would never… Never say never darling. It’s just bound to land you in a heap of I told you so.
I’m just going to check one quick thing (on my computer)- Down the rabbit hole! Every. Time. Call me a sucker, but here, try it. START HERE: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uz_s8ThT6oc&feature=player_embedded, THEN THIS: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7yNdpaSBTzo&feature=related AND THEN: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rEPgd2v1LTQ&feature=relmfu OR: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wJgVeeQ1KNo&feature=related THERE’S MORE!(who can resist babies?): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hb9RJlHvjXQ It’s endless Alice!
I just want a little bite– Of almost anything that I would say this about… it’s a slippery slope.
I mean it!– Generally translates to: Seriously, don’t make me say it again… Stop it… really… I mean it!
I’m not going to say this again– Translation: I’m about to say this again.
Oh Grow up!– It’s one thing to say that to our children, but oh how it stings when they do.
We could really use some rain: Inevitably leads to “Rain again?”
I’m going to tackle that mess in my office– Tomorrow.
I’m going to get all of my holiday shopping done early this year.– tick tick tick…
