I guess you won't be hurrying down to the American Idol try-outs, I wouldn't even sing in the shower with that voice.
Did you sign your wife up for What Not To Wear? She has the fashion sense of an 85 year old escapee from the nursing home.
Even if I thought it (which I do not) I would NEVER say it.
I would never suggest someone try out for The Biggest Loser. You put on a few extra pounds or should I say tons?
Or maybe you are in your late twenties and not married yet, have you thought about applying for The Bachelor? Hmm, maybe you need Extreme Makeover first.
Your house is needs some updating, it is kind of a dump. Have your lived here long? Oh, let's nominate you for Extreme Home Makeover!
Have a couple more kids and you can get your own reality show. They can call it, John and Kate Know How To Mate.
No normal person would say those things.
So, why do people think it is ok to say this:
Them: Are you going to apply for it?
Me: What? Spanish Immersion (one track mind)?
Them: No, Supernanny, the auditions are coming to the Springs.
Me: No, I am not.
Them: Why not? It would be great.
Me: Not for me.
Them: But you have the three boys, everyone who knows you would think it is so funny.
Me: No, we are not going to sign up.
Them: Really, it would be so fun.
Me: No, I do not think it would be so fun.
Back up to earlier this morning.
Carter had a friend sleepover and join us for church.
Ben and Griffin were at a father/son camp out for cub scouts.
Hayden decided to sit with Carter and his friend during church. They were so good. I was right behind them. Carter was rubbing his little brother's back for most of the service. I was so impressed.
And then someone has to assume that since I have boys, I need Supernanny.
Do they get a little crazy sometimes? Yes.
Do they burp and fart and think it is hysterical? Yes.
Do they act any different than any other boys? NO!
Do not assume because they are boys that they are bad. Boys are different. Different is good.
100 reasons why I love the Testosterone Zone.
I wish people could think before they speak. I realize he thought what he was saying was hysterical. In fact, he probably thought about it all week and couldn't wait until he saw me on Sunday to mention it.
What I should have said was:
Do you think my parenting skills are so bad? Or is it my children you find horrible? Why would you assume being a parent of three boys would automatically make me interested in Supernanny?
Or perhaps I should have just said:
F _ _ k off. (which is exactly what I was thinking at the time.)
