Tongue in Cheek Tuesday
Of course I said yeah, because I am pretty capable of poking fun at myself or anyone else for that matter.
Lets start with a definition from WiseGeek:
Tongue in cheek:
When described as “tongue in cheek,” it means it should not be taken seriously. Tongue in cheek humor is often wry, subtle, and sometimes difficult to catch, in contrast with more blatant forms of humor.
I might have trouble with this, I am usually blatant and I also had to look up wry.
Or this one from Wikipedia, (who also wanted a donation while I was there reading):
Tongue-in-cheek is a phrase used as a figure of speech to imply that a statement is humorously or otherwise not seriously intended and it should not be taken at face value.
So if I have it correct a good example of tongue in cheek would be: "helll yeah I want to donate money to Wikipedia, I can't think of any place that deserves my cash more".
Or maybe that's just a lie? Whichever.
For the kick off to Tongue in Cheek Tuesday, that may or may not happen regularly and might not even be on Tuesdays, I decided to just poke fun at myself with out any tongue in cheek because sadly the story you are about to read is true, blatantly true.....
Last night I rushed around to get ready for a Christmas party of a committee I am on. I got all dolled up, Brawn wore jeans without holes, and we loaded ourselves up in the cold and headed out. We showed up promptly at 7:05, cream cheese pepper dip and homemade caramels in hand. Ummm mmmm, yummy.
In fact we were the first to arrive. Odd no one else was on time. Brawn said he didn't recall ever being first to a party.
Ding dong went the doorbell. The hostess answered in a festive red sweater but she really didn't look all that happy to see us.
THAT'S FRICKING BECAUSE THERE WAS NO PARTY BEHIND THAT DOOR!!! IT WAS LAST FRIDAY!
Four. Days. Late.
I apologize now to my oldest daughter..... these people travel in your circle and you will probably have to endure jokes at my expense. Please don't let my son in law agree with them, defend me.
Of course I won't live it down at home either. Child #6 has already threw it back in my face. I told him he has basketball practice on Thursday and he said he didn't think so. I said authoritatively, well it's written on my calendar, I got that info from somewhere!
And the little brat said.......
"ohhhhh.... just like that PARTY was written down on your calendar?"
I had pepper jelly dip for breakfast today. And lunch. And snack.
