Things That Make Me Say...

"I am too pretty for this!"

(This is the only picture I have of the face I make when I say it!)

I've said that phrase a lot lately, but here are a few examples of when I break it out.
  • When my computer overheated midway through video work and I had to start over from scratch. My computer is apparently going through menopause... hot flashes are becoming more and more common.
  • When a friend suggested I date a 19-year-old Russian carnie because "he can make homemade vodka!"
  • When her friend agreed with my sarcastic suggestion I date a (hypothetical) former criminal with three illegitimate children and a shady career path.
  • When yet another friend (where do I find these people?!), after hearing the above, offered up the idea I find someone with mob ties (yeah, I've done that and it's not as much fun as it seems).
  • When I discovered my Kermit the Frog shirt has not only burn marks but a HOLE in the back from when friend lit me on fire (I've worn it since said on-fire incident but not since the hole discovery).
  • When the students who were frantically emailing me all weekend about last-minute details for their Monday speeches chose NOT to show up for class today. Glad I spent my weekend helping, guys.
These are only a few of the things that come to mind (yes, there really are more). I bet you have some similar stories from your week, too -- share them in the comments!

And then say it with me: "I am too pretty for this!"
