Don't you hate it when...

Don't you hate it when you find out you're not funny, you're just mean?  But everybody except for the person who is most important to you thinks you're dang hilarious?  Its not fair, because you just want to keep the roll of thunderous applause for your clever-wit rumbling along, but you don't want your dearest to continue to feel hurt.  Don't you hate it when you can't even put up an example of what you're talking about, because it would probably just be exploiting the situation for more humor? And don't you hate it when you are confronted with acid wash, plaid, mullets, and slap bracelets, and you absolutely- under no circumstances- had better laugh at that?

And finally, don't you hate it when you have an item at your disposal that you are absolutely certain could WIN you the adorable little bird prize and the gift card, but if you used it, you'd be in the doghouse for months?

*I'm fully expecting your sympath vote here.  Don't tell me you don't vote "sympathy" I've seen some of the past winners! ;)

This is mostly just my acknowledgment of Shelle's contest...if you want to see the "real" entries...the one's that will make you laugh and say "Yeah, I really DO hate it when..." visit Shelle at BlokThoughts.

Yes! I hate it when that happens.

I'm proud of you for your restraint, though.

Nobody You Know said...

Well, I don't have a clue what you're talking about, but I am sure glad I can finally view your blog again. I've been trying for ever and when I click on your link I get redirected to some weirdo google page.

Have you even missed me?

Your wit will sometimes annoy but always bring rolling and thunderous laughter! I say cross your fingers, apologize in advance and go for it!

Channon said...

I've always loved that contest. I won one week... with alot of sympathy votes might I add. Anyway you've got mine!

Chris said...

I get that. I removed my entire blog post yesterday because I was having reservations and then my husband said it wasn't funny. So AWAY IT WENT. :) If it's not funny to him, then it just isn't funny.

Chris, funny you should mention "husband" in regards to this topic. ;)

T said...

My life was so much simpler before my husband bookmarked my blog on his blackberry...

Shelle-BlokThoughts said...

Can't a loved one just take a joke? lol!

My husband has to just get use to it...poor thing!

I say EXPLOIT! EXPLOIT!!!

The Wixom Zoo said...

Yeah, I hate that. (But the evil little brat inside of me still wants to know the story...)

clan of the cave hair said...

Heatherlyn said...

I'm lauging at T's comment about her husband bookmarking the blog on his blackberry. Yeah, that kind of limits what you can blog about!

I visited the site hosting the contest. She is a riot!

Bee and Rose said...

Acid wash, plaid, mullets and slap bracelets....that has to be some good bloggy stuff right there! LOL! I hate it when I want to create a "humorous" blog about my loved ones (ok...make fun of them in the blogosphere) and they just don't want to play along..(ok...they threaten my life...)

Mina said...

I don't think I could stay serious with acid wash and a mullet.

Erin said...

It must be an 80s story or joke. Slap bracelets, mullets, acid wash? I remember those times all too well.

the letter Bee said...

Ah... Slap bracelets. Didn't those come with Hammer pants??

binks said...

I hate when that happens. Significant others can be quite the killjoy sometimes.
I can't for the life of me know why the heck I am not following you.....

You get my sympathy vote Deary!
I hate it when we have to be the grown-ups and do the right thing...even when it is a real Party Pooper!
