Gloating....

Monday, October 12, 2009....

Did you ever hear the expression: Gloating causes wrinkles? Well, it does.

My husband is going to be very surprised when he wakes up in a few days looking as though he's 95.

It's one thing to gloat about his Yankees winning, but I don't need any reminders about my Red Sox.

Maybe I should purchase some Geritol or Depends to go with his new look.

I am laughing out loud. We are Red Sox fans also :(
Oh Well, maybe next year!!

I know! I was so upset! We totally had it right up 'til the last friggin' minute! (Plus I was all the more heartbroken that my future husband Pedroia didn't heroically pull us through once we were down to our last strike...)

Berowne said...

Do not be downhearted. In another 85 years or so the Chaussettes Rouges may start winning again!

Karyn Bernard (French Charming) said...

You are so funny! Sorry about your Red Sox...well not really, I live in California and have been a life long Angel fan. Please don't hate me...PLEASE! Next year sweets!!

Hugs,
Karyn

Smooches,
Sassy Chica

Drahdrah said...

You made me laugh !!! Don't worry, I'm sure you'll be able to gloat about something soon !

Green-Eyed Momster said...

LOL!! Do you still have Curt Schilling? I've lost touch since he left us.
Just imagine how hot you'll look next to a 95 year old man!

Hugs!!

Does gloating also cause grey hairs? Or, better yet, thinning hair? That'll teach him.

Matty said...

He can gloat all he wants....UNTIL they fall to the Phillies in the fall classic.

La La La Leah said...

uh was this for the world series? I don't follow the baseball.... Its not big in Utah. When I lived in Atlanta I did go to a few Braves games... so I don't totally hate baseball just don't watch or follow it, like some people

Sunshinemeg said...

Hilarious. I hate when my fiances teams do better than mine. I feel your pain.

Heckety said...

Oooh! Scorch!!!!

Life, Love And Lola said...

LMAO!!!!!!

Actual Scale said...

If it is any consolation, we're Cardinal fans here...very disappointed Cardinals fans.
Heck, we don't even have football to fall back on...well, except college. Go Mizzu! ;)

Dorkys Ramos said...

Oh so sorry for your loss. I live a couple minutes from the stadium and the train was packed after the game that night.

Maybe next year? I'm not a fan of either though.

maria.palermo said...

are you a Patriots fan too? If so, then our friendship could have some ramifications......I bleed Green as in Gang Green NY JETS!

New England Girl said...

Ugh. Those Red Sox... pff. I am very upset with Papelbon, I'm not going to lie. I am avoiding any of my Yankee friends over the next few days. Maybe even weeks, depending on how they do against the Angels. A sad end to a great season, but there is always next! :) Boo to the Yankees... hopefully the evil empire will be crushed! :)

Living and Loving in L.A. said...

I am so sorry about the Red Sox. It was a pretty good game and I was SURE they were going to win. Plus, my step-dad is a HUGE fan, and he said that if the Dodgers (my boyfriend's team) were to play the Red Sox in the world series, they would make a trip out to L.A. to go to the game, and then I could have seen my mom and I really miss her, so TRUST ME, I really wish your Red Sox could have won. XO.

a corgi said...

oh......I guess I shouldn't remind you that I live in Southern California......just mere miles (60 or so) from Angel stadium.....

betty

Otin said...

NA NA NANA NA NA NA NANA NA!!!!!!

:) :) :) :) :) :) !!!!!!!!!!

DB said...

You know, if Billy ever ever wants black forest cake in your household, he should probably quit the gloating ASAP. ASAP I say. I just hope the Angels beat the Yankees now...

Monkey Man said...

Hi, my name is Monkey Man and I'm a Red Sox fan. I am hooked on following my home state and fellow OSU alumn Jacoby Ellsbury and am afraid of the withdrawal I will have to go through now that they are out of the playoffs. Baseball is dead to me.

Til next Spring.

Captain Dumbass said...

Ouch.

Joanna Jenkins said...

What a hoot!
Dare i say Go Dodger!?!?

NINA said...

Gloating is good, with or without wrinkles.
Mmmm, the Red Sox, Really???
Just kidding.

midlifeslices said...

I'm doing some "catch up" reading and enjoyed all the rants/raves, facts about you and one word answers but now I've got a question.

How do you like Jillian's 30 day shred? You HAVE stopped eating coconut gelato and actually started doing the moves, right?

Ink Obsession Designs said...

You totally just made me laugh! :)

Deborah said...

Here is the inside scoop on Smokes, sometimes I can't get him in! But I refuse to keep him outside.. My son has to call him! Last night it started raining so I lucked out, then he wanted to come in. He won't even come in for food!!It can take up to a full hour without my son being home. He doesn't listen to me at all!!

kyslp said...

I swear that I don't gloat so I'm not sure what is wrong with my face.

LiLu said...

As a fellow BoSoxer,

SAD FACE TO THE MAX.

Little Ms Blogger said...

Deborah – It was hard to laugh when my hubby was smiling, dancing and going on and on about his wonderful Yankees.

Noththatkindofgirlblog – Can you believe it? I was like NO WAY. I thought it was in the bag. Please talk to your future husband about this.

Berowne – Ouch. So not true.

French Charming – I don’t hate you. I just think you may a bit misguided.

The Actors Diet – Really? You never had people around you gloat about anything?

Sassy Chica – But, I’ll look hot being next to Mr. 95 year old.

Drahdrah – I already have, but not to him.

Green Eyed Momster – You’re right. I’ll be a trophy wife.

Pseudonymous High School Teacher – I wish it did. Maybe if you gloat and do the gloat gig the hair will begin to thin or go gray.

Matty – I’m with you!

La La – No. Not yet.

SunshineMeg – I’m glad someone understands my pain.

Heckety – Scorch? Never used that expression, but may now.

Life, Love & Lola – It’s not funny (as I stamp my feet )

Actual Scale – Oh that’s not good, but isn’t college football HUGE in the Midwest?

Dorkys Ramos - Thank you.

Mp – No, not a Patriots, but certainly not a Jets fan – Giants babe-eee.

New England Girl – Hmmm…. I think he’d notice if I changed the locks on the door or put duct tape on his mouth as soon as started singing Yankee praises.

Living & Loving LA – I’m sorry they didn’t. It sounds like you would have really had a great visit with your mom & stepdad.

A corgi – I knew, but had forgotten until now – thanks. Thanks a lot.

Otin – I CAN’T READ WHAT YOU WROTE (similar to I can’t hear you)

DB – Unless he brings that stupid cake in the house, it’ll never come in.

Monkey Man – This made me crack up.

Captain Dumbass – I’m assuming you’re agreeing with me that it isn’t fair he gloats so much.

Joanna – Say whatever you want NOW….It’s over for me till Spring and as long as the Yankees get squashed, I’ll be happy.

NINA – Gloating actually is good with red wine.
I’m ignoring your last statement – I’m thinking it was a typo.

Midlifeslices – I got off the couch – no more gelato, but will be starting the 30 day shred tomorrow.

Ink Obsessions – easy for you to say, you’re not living with mr. gloater man

Deborah – good thing someone can get him in.

Kyslp – LOL… Okay, that made me laugh. Gloating just causes wrinkles faster and if you have wrinkles, it causes you to have more of them.

LiLu – it’s tragic, but more tragic if the Yankees win.

Midtown Girl said...

LOL- can I just tell you that you are one hilarious chick! - Your comment had me rolling, seriously.

If I ever need a sidekick hitman, you will be my partner in crime - LOL!

Helen McGinn said...

*LOL* I know nothing except that my old boyfriend loved the Dallas Cowboys and I have their shirt which I used to wear to bed.

Constructive Attitude said...

hahahahaha

Sunshine Mama said...

I love reading all your comments to the commenters. You say the wittiest things. I'm not a baseball fan, but I dimly recall my husband mentioning something about baseball the other night. Was that last night?

Oh, I took your idea and declared that this entire week be my birthday week. I mentioned it in my blog, and now my dad wants to do the same thing for his birthday in Januar.

Can you imagine if everybody decided to have a birthday week? Good thing only a few people have this idea. Well, then again, week-long parties could be fun.

Dan said...

Don't forget the walker too!

Midlife Jobhunter said...

Ha! Gloat is not a good thing to have lingering about. Could be time to hang the Red Sox banner on the bedroom door.
