Say it like it is....R-Rated Style....

Okay...so another post about how much I love Etsy....I love Etsy....I always find fab-u-licious things that I won't find anywhere else...and usually at amazing prices.....(Sounds like a commercial for Wal-Mart or something).....


Last week I ordered something I thought would be a PERFECT Christmas present for my future sister in law.....She lives in Detroit...and is getting married next summer to my Brother in Law...and is needing things to set up her new home.....and well to put it delicately....she tells it like it is.....all the time.....If you don't want to know the answer....you shouldn't ask the question.....sometimes she scares me a little...it's like when Dr Bruce Banner turns into The Incredible Hulk.....Yikes....no good....everyone kind of scatters ....




Don't get me wrong....I like her....it's just....I have parents who grew up in the south...where you catch more flies with honey than with vinegar....or I was told constantly that if you can't say anything nice...then don't say anything at all.....just a cultural difference of opinion.....

What I do tell my lovely husband though...."aren't you glad you married ME?".....

When the Box arrived from Vintage Lucys.....I was so excited.....I ripped open the package like a 3 year old at Christmas....and proudly took out the saying I know I've heard my new SIL say many a time....and a saying sometimes I WISH I could say....I am in no way consider my self a cusser....profanity usually only escapes my mouth if I stub my pinky toe really bad....or someone is a jerk while cutting me off on the freeway....But I just adore...


The Amazingly Enough I Don't Give A Shit kitchen towel........It is awesome.....It is so fitting.... she'll love...it absolutely love it.....which sometimes is a little hard......she is a self proclaimed High-Maintence chick....(her words...not mine)....anyone who actually self admits to their own bitchiness....definitely deserves to dry their dishes with this towel....




and after looking at it sitting on my very g-rated.....foul mouth free countertop all day....I have decided...

That I must have it...and that I'm going to keep this one....and just order her another one....luckily it's still 6 weeks till Christmas....

Now If I am a little peeved at Juice......I don't have to say anything....I can just whip out the towel...."what? What's that?...Well you know what? Bam....there ya go"...It's great...I can be a bitch....well without being a bitch....who wouldn't want that?????....Just my luck though...he'd end up towel snapping me with it later.....darn it....

But otherwise

Life is good....oh yes]......Life is so good......Look...I'm already telling it more like it is.....I think the towel really works......or maybe my new SIL is rubbing off on me.....

Oh lord....I didn't even think about that...luckily Pooh is still illiterate.....for now...so I guess I'll only get a few years out of it...then it will have to go into hiding....

LOL
Fantastic towel! She is going to love it.
My own sister is a "tell it like it is" kind of gal. We all just have to shake our heads at some of the things that come out of her mouth!

hahahahaha! That is too funny! I also am a attract bees with honey not vinegar girl! It's not too often that I let those words slip out, but I had a calander with those vintage girl and those kinds of sayings! It's great to be able to "say" what you want, without having to say it!!

Mandy said...

LOL I love it. I am (or was) a say it like it is kind of girl, but moving from Oz where alot of us "say it like it is" to the midwest of the USA I had to quiet my tongue a little.

Julie said...

I really NEED one of those. I wonder if they put that on an apron? That would be awesome :)
