She came THIS close to being my favorite

During the morning commute:

Jane: Oh hey! That was Lily's Jenkins mom! Have you ever met her?
Alpha: Um, don't think so.
Jane: She's really nice. I worked with her on the last fundraiser. I swear she must be a marathoner or something. She has absolutely not ONE ounce of fat on her.
Alpha: Really!
Jane: Yeah, you know I should be a sport and offer to share some of mine with her.
Alpha: That would be SO nice of y.... I mean, what fat? Mom, you can't afford to spare an ounce yourself!

If she works on her timing she could have a future in politics.

Hey, at least she caught herself! My kids would have wholeheartedly agreed and thought nothing of it.

You should be able to come back and visit me now.
Peace

Passing the fat around is the neighborly thing to do. My girls know better than to even say that 3 letter word.

This conversation would not happen in my house.
Mostly because we are too busy discussing liposuction or stomach bands.

Can I just tell you Jane! That I had an honest to goodness dream that you and I were on a train together and I turned to you and said: are you Jane! and you said yes, and I think we hit the bar car together.

Even for me it was an odd dream, perhaps I lerve you.

Shanna said...

Close, but no cigar- even if we don't hear the words, we can still read the mind :-S

Soxy Deb said...

OMG Jane - that is so funny. But at least she did catch herself and then backpeddaled so fast she nearly tripped herself - lmao!!

Shupe said...

giggle-

You really don't have any to spare!

I don't know if her being in politics she could do her cheers! OH wait- Didn't Sara P want to do the talent portion with her flute?

OH my!

BBB said...

Sounds like she's thinks pretty fast on her feet to me!! I don't know what you are worried about missy. I have seen your pictures and you look great!! I know queen size fannies since I HAVE one....and you don't!

Have a great weekend!

Ahahaha. You gotta give her Kudos for the save though.

thesleepdeprivedmomma said...

Surely not JUST my stethoscope. LMFAO!!!! I don't know why my updates aren't coming through except that I literally posted that about ten minutes ago. TOPS!! LOL

Debbie said...

Oh yeah! Just edit out the first little part in your mind and you'll be glowing all weekend.

Kat said...

She still owes you money for the car, right?

Jane! said...

Wrong kid - this is the college student. Not the cheerleading car crasher.

Nadine Hightower said...

Like Duh Mom??

Too funny...g

JennyD said...

Oh geez, that was so funny. Her timing was just a tad off -- was she on that transit bus earlier? Those smells can disrupt the brain process, you know. I've got to hand it to you; every time I've tried to set foot on a bus here, I almost gag. Can't do it. It's like something died in there. Well, maybe when more people around here start changing their habits of driving cars everywhere, the buses will be washed out, then dunked in antiseptic and doused with Febreze and then I'll give it another shot.

Hey, when I landed here today, WOWWWWW what a page you made! It's adorable, Jane; columns and everything! You are good, lol.
Here ya go: I'm leaving you with a Christmas gift that I know you'll love and use: my extra 10 lbs of fat, lovingly wrapped and sent express.

MizAngie said...

Wow - if we COULD share extra pounds...just think how many people I could help! hahahaha...

Tonight was graduation. Hoooooo-rahhhhhhhhh. One more week and I'll be off for a coupla weeks. Do y'all shut down?

jill said...

good save, Alpha!

don't blame me...go yell at Carmi - he requested bright pictures this week.

we're having "winter" -- lots and lots of rain in our forecast and highs in the 60's...lol

Domestic Goddess said...

LMAO!! Sounds like her mother's daughter to me...

Kelly said...

I like Angie's idea...we could share a little with everyone and it would be our own little charity! lol

I came by from Kat's spot. :)

Miss Thystle said...

Do you have an address for Lily's mom? I'll send her mine. I've got PLENTY to spare.
