It’s one of my favorite sayings and also what finally convinced my own mother to get that massage (at the age of 60) she had always wanted to get. How my friend made it down to the pool in her “mom” bathing suit to make some memories with her kids on vacation. It’s also how I have managed to get out in my jammy shorts and bunny slippers to pump gas so that everyone made it to school that morning. (Just look away dude — nothing to see here.) Hahaha! Anyway, I’ve sort of, unwittingly, created this “giggle proclamation” for some of my friends and family of “You will never see these people again!” whenever there’s something they want to do but think they might feel the mighty wrath of judgement from people. Lol!
It’s actually turned out to be quite liberating and on more than one occasion — hilarious!! But the best one may have happened just a few weeks ago when my mother called me after spending a “glorious afternoon with (my) Yittle…”
Grandma: (About to walk out the door with Yittle for the movies) “Uh, Yittle, you have a sneaker on one foot and a flip flop on the other — why is that?
Yittle: “Oh, I’m expressing myself Grandma.”
Grandma: “I see. Do you think everyone at the movies will understand that you’re expressing yourself?”
Yittle: (As she heads out the door in front of Grandma) “Oh Grandma — I’ll never see those people again!”
I like that about her. 😉
