Poetry in Motion

We carpool to school with another family and I usually have the afternoon shift. This week, however, my work schedule is all over the place since I am plowing through Major Work Project and the bulk of my deadlines are this week.

Yesterday morning I was driving Miss C and her friend to school. We live near a four-way stop and as we approached it and slowed down I saw another driver approaching from the left in a mini-van. She glanced at us and kept driving. Granted she slowed down a bit, but she definitely did not stop and she definitely did not do the rolling stop.

It was all I could do to not shout out something really inappropriate. I quelched my desire to fling out some significant obscenities as I remembered that Miss C’s friend’s dad is a minister of music at one of the big Baptist churches in town. Instead I honked my horn and yelled out the dirtiest non-curse word I could think of…

    Our favorite “kid-friendly” driver story involves hubby’s aunt. When she would want to name call stupid drivers with he and his brother present, everyone got the “LOOK OUT BUCKO!”

    I don’t name call, but instead, mutter derogatory sarcasm at would-be idiot drivers. They can’t hear me but it makes me feel better.

    We love us some Sponge Bob at our house! Seriously, the educational benefits for children under age 6? Awesome! 😉

    Any way, there’s nothing funnier than watching a 2-year-old get completely engrossed by Patrick and Sponge Bob and Squidward.

    You toilet mouth you! *gasp* I’m just shocked.
    Frap knuckles is my current favorite.
    peanut butter balls.

    either one gives me odd satisfaction. Yes, I’m weird.

    You crack me up!

    I like Frap Knuckles.

    Sometimes I say Fart Knocker…whatever the heck that is.

    Really I wanted to shout out Shithead! Or Effing Bitch…but I stopped myself.
