Recently, the whole famdamily was running errands together. This always makes for some quality and silly conversations in the car. We had to stop by a place of business and pick up some stuff from a friend of ours. This friend is an odd bird.
After we got back into the car, I said: gosh, so and so is just sooooo strange.
Coach’s reply: Yep, so and so certainly does struggle with sanity.
We all busted out laughing because of the ‘matter of fact’ way he said it…and he wasn’t trying to be funny.
For the rest of the day “struggling with sanity” was the phrase that pays.
For sure every 28 days or so, I will declare to the whole family: Stay away…I am struggling with sanity and I have a shank! Then I’ll give them that evil laugh of mine….mwwwaaahhhhhhaaaa.
If I warn them, then my conscience is clean as a whistle. (According to my attorney.)
A few days later, Lo had a wacky face book message from a person who ‘struggles with sanity.’ (not a friend…but a parent of a friend)
She read it to me, and I said: wow, that was quite snarky.
Lo laughed at me: Snarky? Whaaaat?
I said: snarky….you know, sassy…catty….not nice.
She shook her head, like I made this word up myself.
A day later she was watching an episode of House…and they used the word Snarky.
I have been vindicated.
Now, it is a fact…you know since it was on fictional TV and all!
Don’t you ever get the urge to shank some snarky person who is clearly struggling with sanity?
I can’t be the only one.
