1. You have a lot of hair!
I get this from hair dressers a lot. I have thick, long hair. I know I have a lot of it. I've taken to going, "I do?" when people say this now. If you state the obvious, I get to be sarcastic. Right?
2. Stop drinking Diet Coke. It's so bad for you!
Sure. Okay. I'll stop drinking it. And then turn really, really mean. Diet Coke is how I get my caffeine since I don't like coffee. If I stopped drinking it, my family would beg me to have some after a day. I promise.
3. How can you not love country music?
Well, because a lot of it reminds me of a dying animal. I don't like twangy noises. Mind you, I do like SOME country songs. But would I listen to it all the time? No.
4. Why don't you think Norman Reedus is hot? (He plays Daryl in The Walking Dead.)
I don't know. His face is all squished and his eyes are too small for his face. He doesn't do it for me. You can have him and his arrows. Congrats.
5. Just tell her no!
Someone always says this when I write about how Natalie is being difficult. Just tell her no? Why didn't I think of that? Thank you so much for the fabulous suggestion!
6. Your son is going to resent you when he's older since you had him circumcised.
Is he really? So the fact that I clothed and fed him and kept him alive all those years will mean nothing? Let me go ask my husband. Wait. He says to stop saying things like that, you crazy, crazy Internet people. He does not resent his mother. In fact, he thanks his mother. Worry about the penises you are raising. Thanks!
7. How can you not like Harry Potter?
Levicus nothanktus! That's magic for, "I could not get into the books!" I've tried. Many times.
8. You should not air your dirty laundry online.
I try to watch what I share...however, I'm not going to pretend like my life is sunshine and daisies and chocolate all the time. It's just not who I am. I want people to understand that life isn't perfect. That bad things happen. Drama happens. Life is blunt, and so am I.
