Good to know

Did you know that you can get away with saying almost anything, no matter how blunt, if you end with the phrase "Love you!"?

It's true. A sharp criticism cannot be taken as offensive if those two little words are tacked on at the end.

Also "bless his/her heart" if you're from The South or wish to pretend to be from The South. As in, "My goodness, but that man is ugly... bless his heart!"

These are just a couple of the things I learned from the very cool teenagers I hung out with on the marching band trip.

I also learned that when you have one teenager, you have one teenager's brain. When two teenagers are gathered, you have one-half of a teenager's brain. And when three or more teens are gathered, you have no brains among them at all.

Bless their hearts!


  1. Yes, Bless their ever-lovin' hearts.

    And it is indeed a good thing we love them ;)

  2. Hee Hee, that's so funny, Lisa, bless your heart. Bless your humor too!

  3. I dunno... that post is hardly a glowing recommendation for group dating, though, is it? I wonder if any teenagers who read your blog might use your logic against you? :D

  4. What does it say about the brain of the person who got themselves on a trip with brainless teenagers?

    Bless her little heart and frazzled nerves and sleep deprived body.

  5. Hee hee hee ha h ahahaha

    That is so true, on both counts.

    Rhetorically (trying to impress your academically snobbish husband here) and teenagerly.

    Amen and Amen to it all!

    You can also get away with anything if you say "not to be rude but . . . "

  6. Gee, I forgot to use that on my last comment to you, Crash.

  7. Good to know. I'll be sure to use one of them next time I offend. I should have used it on my last post come to think of it. I will have offended plenty I am sure.
