Strange Noises In the Potty

May 5, 2009

A recent trip to the little boy’s room made me recall a humorous conversation/debate I had with wifey and her friends a while back. At some point during that conversation, it took a downward spiral (probably thanks to me) as we discussed the riveting topic of bathroom etiquette. Curiously, I axed the shy sistahs if they actually made “noise” when handling’ their bidness at a public restroom.

You should’ve seen the cold stare (not to mention the deafening silence) I got from that one. Sheez.

Upon returning from the death stare and silence, they asked me, “Why!? Do YOU!?!?”

Now if you know anything about me, I’m all about honesty. No shame! So I gave it to them:

“Of course! Why not!? I don’t know any of these people, and, even if I did, who cares? It’s human nature! It’s unhealthy to hold it in!”

[insert more cold stares and silence in addition to crinkled noses and “Ewwwwwws!”]

I continued…

“BUT… at work it’s a different story. If somebody saw me going in, or they know I’m in thurr, I try and hold back shmall kine.”

There’s just a different set of rules for work potty usage no? Ya gotsta stay professional up in the heezy. I don’t exactly want the trumpet to blow while one of the execs sits in the stall next to me. That’s just weird. Plus it might affect my year end reviews. 😉

There’s also a timing strategy involved. (Eh, no laugh! I know you got the same strategy! *grin*) You gotta make sure that anybody in the bat’chroom with you is gonedos before you make your grand exit. There’s nothing worse than playing a virtual virtuoso of noises in the stall, only to step out to a bunch of glaring/inquisitive co-worker eyes who were wondering who that Dizzy Gillespie-wannabe was tooting in the stall. LOL!

Don’t get me wrong. I’m not exactly a noise maker extraordinaire, but sometimes ya just gotsta let loose, ya heard? After all, it’s not very good for your health… 😛

(… I still can’t believe I just wrote about this topic. Apologies… 8) )

Gimme Back That Filet-O-Fish

March 19, 2009

* Is it just me or is that damn Filet-O-Fish commercial addicting or what!?!?

It never fails. Every time that Filet-O-Fish commercial from McDonalds appears as I fast forward through shows on the DVR, I have to rewind a bit and play it back for wifey so she can giggle and sing along. At first I was like “WTH, this is lame, lemme keep going,” but now I find myself delightfully amused, even bobbing my head to the beat.

Whoever thought of the idea of using that well known talking/singing “trophy fish” to sell MickeyDees’ fish product is pure genius. And whoever came up with that even catchier tune is just jingleriffic.

Mad props.

You got wifey and I (and errryone else for that matter) a-talkin’ and, undoubtedly a renewed interest in the Filet-O-Fish. Maybe I’ll go pick one up for lunch today. *grin*

Gimme back that Filet-O-Fish
Gimme that Fish
