What Do You Say When You See Someone?




Who knew this factoid, though it does make sense...


So unless you plan on calling me, don't plan on me responding with a "hello!"  It would not be appropriate.  Something more along the lines of, "Get the hell off my foot!" might be the reaction you get.  Or maybe "WTF?!?!?!"

Just sayin...

"Salve" or "Ciao".

ETA at the phone we say "Pronto" that means " I'm ready".

Believe it or not I have lovely manners irl, most of the time.  I chew quietly and with my mouth closed, I apologize profusely when I accidentally shove someone off of a curb, I remove my opera gloves before shaking hands with heads of state and the Pope...but at no other time.

But I am sure my sainted mother is glad she never lived to hear how rude I am when I answer the phone.  I have two greetings and you can tell my mood by which one I use:

"This is Buffy*"  I'm in a good mood.  I took the time to speak an entire sentence fragment to you...clearly welcoming.  If you insist on saying hello or asking how I am I will sigh and humor your need for insipid niceties.

"Buffy*"  Clipped tone - get to it.  Ask me how I'm doing and you will get a "fine - you? what do you need?" in rapid fire which allows no time for you to answer indicates I don't care how you are and am annoyed at the intrusion.

*Although I do use my actual name - although I'm thinking if I start using Buffy maybe people will get confused and stop calling me.  Something to think about.

      From the clip on Jinger’s instastory, Jeremy is there with her and seems pretty pleased with himself.

      Isn’t he always pleased with himself? I swear he acts so paternal with Jinger it makes me want to vomit.

      I can't believe they're already up to 14 grandchildren in less than five years. That's gotta be a fundie record- even the Bates family had only gotten to 10 grandkids within the same period of time. The Mortons had 12.

      Yeah the 4 couples that got married in a 4 month period all got pregnant pretty soon and then just kept having them at regular intervals. Allison may catch up to the others pretty quickly.

      Thanks for sharing your trip down memory lane, @PumaLover! Now I'm wondering if I've ever visited the "deepest regions of my being"  and what's actually down there.  I don't think I'll find what Elizabeth Elliott thinks should be there. 

      I love the Everything's Coming Up Roses and that that the menu names each dish.  It seems so...effusively Southern. Sun Splashed Salad! Variegated Veggies!  So. Much. Alliteration

      I googled Betty Boop potatoes and came across a recipe for crispy potato slices with melted cheese and bacon.

      Utterly bizarre that Bradrick! has set up shop in my home town. 

      I upvoted your post, but really wish there was that facebook "hug and comfort"  emoji as an option.  You might run into him at Walgreens!  

      I suspect that Bradrick! has a pleasant business persona.  No idea what his personal beliefs are these days. Probably still a very conservative Christian but not fundie.  Has he remarried?

      I highly recommend Not the Good Girl's Youtube channel. She is making great documentaries about cults.

      Ohh jeeze, GrandBerry6 just came to me, snuggled his face in my neck and barfed, all over me. In my neck, in my hair, on my face, down inside my nightie all over the front of my nightie. Ohh FUCK! Bath, washed hair, cleaned sofa. Good times, good times.

      I danced through my living room feeling awesome. From time to time I do this. Maybe wine is involved. Good music is definitely involved. It is awesome. I recommend it to you. With or without wine.

      After a few months of trying to decide what kind of new computer to get and my brother telling me a Mac would be the best decision I could ever make and my sister telling me that would be the worst and I ought to stick to Windows.... I now have a used Mac. I am trying to get used to it. Not easy, but the Magnifying program is a lot better than the Windows one (that was the ultimate reason for my decision) and FJ works a lot better than on my 10-year old Laptop, too!!

      Y'all, holter monitors suck. And naturally the palpitations that caused this test to be ordered are remarkably absent today. 
      I'm off to go work out in the hopes that triggers it. T minus 10 hours till I get this thing off.
