The Secret Subject Swap

     Today I am participating in a fun little blogging project known as Secret Subject Swap, which is the brainchild of blogger Karen @ www.bakinginatornado.com. She has started something special here that motivates other bloggers to get creative by working off a prompt that has been secretly assigned to them by another blogger. Fifteen brave bloggers are participating today, simultaneously revealing their prompts and writing a blog post based on their interpretation of the topic chosen for them. Here are the links to all the sites now featuring Secret Subject
Swap:




     My prompt, "Write a list of things you are NOT going to do today and why"--- was submitted by http://stacysewsandschools.wordpress.com

WHAT I'M NOT GOING TO DO TODAY....AND WHY:

* I'm not going to shave my husband's back because if I do, I'm going to get creative and trim it into an FSU logo.

* I'm not going to eat the worm at the bottom of a tequila bottle. Last time that happened, I hallucinated I was dancing with the Care Bears.

* I'm not going to allow my husband to wear my Spanx at the next holiday party because that's just wrong on so many levels.

* I'm not going to unpack my long johns with the butt flap because nobody in Florida wears that stuff.

* I'm not going to ride the Goodyear Blimp today---I don't want a repeat of the Hindenberg incident.

* I'm not going to wear a bra today because baby those puppies were born to be free!

* I'm not going to flush down somebody else's anaconda size mess in the toilet---get a damn plunger and do it yourself.

* I'm not going to ride a donkey today. I might make an ass of myself.

* I'm not going to wear my husband's Depend Undergarments because they have a big pouch in the front.

* I'm not going to get drunk tonight because the last time I did, I ended up crawling on all fours in search of the rabbit hole from Alice In Wonderland.

* I'm not going to try on my skinny jeans today...or any other day. I ate french fries last night....

* I'm not going to strap on a mask and cook liver and onions for my husband (even though he loves it)
 because it always makes me feel like I'm on the set of Silence Of The Lambs.


What AM I going to do today after cooking/dishes/laundry/exercising/facebooking/house cleaning/ and sneaking chocolate?

* Feed a baby panda at the zoo.

* Pour myself a glass of pinot grigio.

* Cuddle my chinchillas.

* Make sure I have enough toilet paper for the week.

* Play tug-of-war with my pug.

* Kick off my high heels and dance to my own tune---the Hokey Pokey!


......and then take a long nap.....

  1. Awesome across the board! I am dying laughing at several things you are not going to do - and envious of many of the things you ARE going to do. Especially the nap...

  7. You were born for this subject swap. Good thing you thought to check out how much toilet paper you have or you'd end up in those adult diapers with the pouch in the front after all!

  17. You know I love you, right? As always, your post was hilarious and frighteningly relatable. No bra? No man-SPANX? No toilet flushing? Thank God there are others out there who are making sure they have enough toilet paper, Pinot, and time to nap. :)

  23. That was a tough assignment. I generally write myself a list of things I HAVE to do today (suddenly I find myself in a loop of saying over and over todotoday todotoday todotoday – fun word combination) – but never would I think to write a list of things not to do today – todotoday todotoday – but you did a great job! :)

    1. Thanks, Theresa! I'm with you on that--My "to do" list is always a mile long. What I really should blog about is the list if things I WANT to do but never have time to do!!!!

  24. Haha! Fun post! Does point number three imply that you once did let your hubs wear Spanx in the past...? We've got to see a picture of that.. after the caveman post I'm sure he's game for it;) My answer would have included 'I'm not going to shower or floss or brush my hair....' you get the idea!

    1. And stay in my bathrobe all day, avoiding phone calls and visitors! You are right though--it would be funny to do a post with the hubs in a pair of Spanx!
