You almost always pick the best times to drop the worst lines

Don’t you hate it when someone says something, and initially you’re like, “ok, whatever,” but then you think about it and you’re like, “fuck, I should have said (fill-in-the-blank).”

Case in point he told me I’m nothing like his other lover, and I was like, “uh, thank you?”

But then I got home and was like, “dang it! I could have used that line from The Incredible Jessica James (movie)!”

Let me set the scene...
Jessica is eating dinner with her blind d who says, “you’re nothing like my ex.” As a viewer, one would easily assume he meant ethnically since he’s white and she’s blac She has a quick look of disgust at his comment, like “did he just fucking say that?”

Sdrastically she responds, “what? Is she short, fat and fugly?”

It was hilarious bc the dude’s face was like, “didn’t see that coming... uh, not too sure how to answer that...”

It would have felt so good to use that line, but fit for me so like, I’d say, “what? Is she tall, skinny and fugly?”

It probably wouldn’t make much sense if he never saw the movie. Whatever. It’s still a great retort.

LOL. I have a visual of a 6 year old wearing a shawl yelling at everyone to get off his lawn.

I think we should compare notes.

You’re on. Be prepared to come with 10-15 supporting studies from within the last 5 years. 🤓

Hey! Good for the little man! It is a sign of maturity to know what he needs to get into the correct head space.

In other news, "spanking" is either the wrong word in that sentence or we may not have the connotation in mind.

Yeah, he’s one of those children that are 6 going full on crotchety old man using his advanced age as an excuse to act badly.

The term “spanking” does seem to have different sexual connotations. I wonder which one I meant. 🤔

Agree with you 100%! The photo inspires all manner of naughty thoughts.

Sounds like good boys need a spanking every now and then, also. 😏

I often thought I could do with a team of writers whispering in my ear so I could always sound clever. I also have thought a theme song would be cool! It would play as I entered and left a room to set the appropriate mood.

Could you imagine having a team of writers at your disposal speaking into your ear? I love the idea of having theme song as you enter the room. Speaking of theme songs to get hyped, my youngest can be terribly shy sometimes. The morning of his first day of Pre-k, he asked for my phone as we were walking up to the school, and he started playing Sunflower like really loud. Pretty sure the song added a little swagger to his step. It was adorable.

Aye McGel, I often read or hear quips like that and immediately wish I had been the one to make them......

One thing that occurred to me as I read what yer fella said - doesn't he have a filter?

He’s on this “laying it all out there” kick right now, so I've been letting him. I mean honesty is good and all, but I agree that maybe I need to clarify that I don't need to hear EVERYTHING.

    Hippiechick1967, I love your walking away comment you made, that made me laugh even though it sounds like it was ment to be a true statement and not really ment to be funny, I bet the satisfaction you got from saying it was priceless.
It was a true statement: my Irish husband had a very small penis but I married him because I loved him. He was very self-conscious about it and I was always reassuring him how it didn't matter. ON that last day, he learned otherwise to my tremendous satisfaction, lol.

Elevate me...

    Near the end of my marriage, my husband began doing things he never did before, like calling me names. It happened twice and, both times I thought, I should have said something back.
    On the last day of our marriage he said to me, "Have you looked at yourself in the mirror lately? Do you see anything I'd wanna have sex with?" But I was prepared! I looked back at him with all the love I could muster in my eyes, as I walked away and said, "And you have a tiny dick, but I still wanted to make love to you."
    It was a very satisfying moment for me.

I can't tell you how many times that has happened to myself and probably most people.

I agree that if my brain would have engaged just a moment earlier I would have had a good line to say back but then again maybe it best I did not and I just walked away with a thought that " maybe I am a better person for not making a return dig .... ha ha, got ya with my silence ! .... lol

just a thought ... giggle


EarthAngel512 replies on 2/7/2021 9:44 am:
The interesting that at most digs or caustic statements is that the person saying them is hoping to get a response whether it’s you picking a fight or shrinking into nothingness.

Seems like the best response in that case is a neutral one like silence or asking from a true place of curiosity “what makes you say that?”

I have yet to master either of those responses, but I feel like I’m leveling up with every interaction.

First off, let me tell you that you are a queen!

Second, what a beautiful response to the end of a relationship to a shithead. I wonder if he could even appreciate the beauty in how accepting you were of his shortcomings—literally and figuratively.

Thank you for reading and taking the time to leave such a beautiful post.

You could also include heavy drinker, smoker, druggie, and not well educated.

Please don't let me be misunderstood.


EarthAngel512 replies on 2/7/2021 7:26 am:
Yeah, I’m not a huge fan of being with someone who has any kind of addiction. I agree that being poorly educated or being what I call willfully ignorant is also a huge turn off. Interestingly enough, I also think highly educated or well read people who use their knowledge to look down on or make other people feel less than is also a huge turn off.

Thanks for reading my post and leaving such a thoughtful comment.

Yep, all the time. Never have the right words at the right time.

I never do like it when I get compared to people's other whatevers. My brain always goes into no-shit mode thinking, "and if I was, you'd be with them."


EarthAngel512 replies on 2/7/2021 7:12 am:
It’s probably a good thing that I don’t come up with what I think are witty retorts all the time, because no one likes a sarcastic smart ass. I know I don’t. I do remember my ENT was a surly fellow, feeling his services were better used in the hospital doing procedures not doing sleep studies in a clinic. To which, I looked at him and said, “I guess it’s true what they say about surgeons.” It took him a second before he realized I was calling him an asshole. Looking away, I could see his chiseled jaw tighten as I’m sure he envisioned yelling or throwing something at me, but when he looked back at me, he saw that I a smirk on my face, and he laughed. Needless to say, he was a little softer after during our appointments after that.

My point is, I’m a huge believer in divine timing, and if the timing wasn’t right to say certain things, it probably wasn’t the right time.

To be fair, I know he wasn’t trying to be a dick about it, but it does beg the question, “wtf was he thinking saying that?” Well, I guess the obvious answer is “nothing.”
