Nice Save

The other day I was talking to my conservative mother and I was going to say the word crap. I knew that she did not approve of this so my brain said "Quick think of a synonym". Then for the first time ever I blurted out @#$%. Yes, nice save brain, that is a synonym, way to get me out of a sticky situation.

My bathroom is set up in such a way that things easily fall out of the medicine cabinet and into the toilet. So when I saw that my expensive mineral makeup compact was taking the fall I quickly used my ninja skills to karate chop it mid air across the room. Nice save. Unfortunately, it opened, broke apart and scattered the makeup all across the master bedroom's beige carpet. Apparently that stuff really stains. Oh well at least I have ninja skills.

Ha! That is absolutely hilarious!

The weirdest thing for me was when my father, who used to threaten to wash my mouth out with soap if I said "bum" when I was a child, recently quoted to me the title of a book which included the word "bull****". Oh, and he also gave a sermon in CHURCH in which he said "son of a bitch". Maybe he's going senile???

Doesn't it totally suck when a great save goes bad??

But kudos on the karate chop.
