Things You Will Never Hear Me Say

     My husband accuses me of talking too much, especially when I get together with my gal pals. He might be right, but I swear, there are times when I know to keep quiet. And there are plenty of sentences you will NEVER hear me say. Ever. This would include:

"Can I hold your pet tarantula? He looks so cute and fuzzy."

"I'd like to purchase an airline ticket...."

"Please invite me to your baby shower so that I can watch you open 30 gifts over the course of three hours."

"Of course I'd love to go to a Miami Dolphins football game in 90 degree heat and drink a warm beer with you."

"Keep driving---I don't mind holding my leaky bladder another 50 miles until the next restroom stop."

"I can easily give up wine for Lent."

"We don't have to order dessert after dinner."

"I'd love to go swimsuit shopping!"

"Yes, I ate the entire box of chocolates by myself."

"Nap? I don't need to nap. That's for old people."

"I can give up social media anytime."

"This cabbage soup diet sounds like a lot of fun."

"Sure, invite me to your Essential Oils party."

"A Cross Training program at 5:30 a.m.? Count me in!"

"I don't need under eye concealer."

"Yes, let's stop dying my hair. I'd be thrilled to go natural gray."

"I don't need any more dogs."

"I'd be happy to babysit your rambunctious toddler in the hotel room while you go bar hopping for five hours."

"We should turn the thermostat up to 80 degrees to lower our monthly electric bill. A little sweat won't hurt me."

"I don't need to keep blogging because hey, who has time for humor?"

     Humor is EVERYTHING. As Erma Bombeck once said, "When humor goes, there goes civilization." I couldn't agree more. Keep laughing, my friends.

***WANT MORE MENO MAMA? I was on Her Story this week sharing an article about losing my sister. You can read it here: I was also featured on Blunt Moms with my aviation traumatization story which you can read here:


  1. These are universal truths. Except for that airplane ticket thing. Honey, you gotta get over that one!!

    1. I know, I know.....but I'm such a phobic wuss.......

  2. Good ones...but that plane thing...

  3. I'm with you on so many of these! Bathing suit shopping.. the worst. I don't like booking travel either. Luckily, my husband could be a travel agent he's so good at it. I'd add, "I'd love to train for that marathon with you," and "Let's party all night."

  4. With you on all of these. And I know the 'plane' one to a quiver . . .

  5. Love it! I can relate to most, although I'm doing quite a bit of flying and have gotten used to the take offs and landings...not so scary for me. I love your humor!

  6. I dragged my wife to a Dolphins game last Oct and we absolutely melted!

  7. Clever way of telling the truth in a roundabout way. Thanks for sharing. A to Z Challenge - L is for Learn Something New!

  8. Don't worry about that airline thing, I buy more than my share, enough for both of us.
    One thing I'd never say: "Sure, go ahead and use my bathroom" to the oven installer. Well, I did, but never again.

    1. Gahhhhhhh! I don't even like letting the plumber in there!

  9. haha, these are perfect, Marcia. You had me laughing the whole way through. "Of course I want to take your mom out on our anniversary." "No, I don't want another glass of wine." and " No, I don't need more time to get ready..." Really? True lies, all of them!!

  10. i was nodding my way through most of your list... and am going to see what else i want to add to my own

  11. I'm a talker, too. I wouldn't say those things either. But I do talk too much on other stuff. I might change now. :-) Thanks.

  12. This cabbage soup diet sounds like a lot of fun." LOL
    And the essential oils! I've been invited to several.
    In the midst of whatev, you always make me giggle! xxx

  13. i mostly love spending summer in nederlands and summer vacations in nederlands called zomervakantie and this zomervakantie 2018 i am going to nederlands.

  14. Lmao....Love you mama for the list and the laughter...What a thing to read before sleeping... Gn

  15. Loved these - particularly the baby shower & going without wine.
