True Life Thursday: My mouth could give any sailor a good run for their money.
Yall would be absolutely stunned at how much profanity you probably use in every day conversation. It is UNREAL. As a direct result of cleaning up my language, I now notice & hang onto every single curse word a person uses when they are talking to me. You know when people are on a diet & they compulsively stare at the french fries on someone else's plate? Its kind of like that. Basically, by not doing something, it makes you hyper aware of the people who are doing it.
I use the french fry reference because that is exactly what Kev decided to give up for Lent. Bless his heart. Have I mentioned how much I looooveeee French Fries? They are definitely one of my top 3 food weaknesses, and I refuse to give them up. Not because I can't do it, but more for the reason that not eating french fries won't help me better myself.
Sooo.. Kevin. Whenever I order french fries, he honestly looks/acts like a person who has been away at fat camp for the past 4 months & i'm dangling a twinkie in front of his face.
|Please tell me yall remember this movie? Such a classic. The Blob? Amazing.|
It's pretty sad. Butttt, both of our sacrifices will both help us in the long run become better people. For me, my filtered language will ensure the fact that I will now never be considered for a role on the Maury Povich Show or Cops, which is a win for everyone. Before hand, it was looking like I could be a shoe-in because I sounded oddly similar to those featured on such programs.
**Side note: Obviously its not a favorable comparison, but such a comparison does kind of make me feel like a total BA. See what I did there? I've even cleaned up my blogging.**
As for Kev, his no french-fry diet will decrease the chances of him ever being considered for my 600 pound life or Biggest Loser. Not that he was headed there for anything, but less fried foods will obviously make the kid healthier. Now.... if we could just get his addiction to Pizza under control. Wish in one hand, right?
So just remember to be throwing me some positive reenforcement during this no-cursing endeavor because I have a feeling this sacrifice is going to get about 2000% harder as we roll into the NCAA Tournament this week. Ohhhh, you can't read that?
It just says.... The Cats got the NUMBER ONE OVERALL SEED FOR THE WHOLE TOURNAMENT. No biggie. However, I've said it before & I'll say it again, when a UK game is on at our house, our neighbors probably confuse our
profane ref bashing
