The End is Near

Today is the second to last day of A Clown On Fire’s blogroll contest.  I don’t normally post on the weekends because my brain needs that 2 day break.  However, I couldn’t forfeit my clown noses for today, so here I am!

Today’s challenge was brought to us by Lame Adventures and was actually quite difficult!  Remember, you too can play even though you are not a contender and have your noses sent my way.  Visit today’s challenge to join in the fun!

I have to say however, I will not be held responsible for anything you don’t get done today because of the hours you will spend reading through all of the brilliant comments from our fellow bloggers.  I truly am in great company and even if I don’t get a spot, I am thankful for all the new friends I have met and the new blogs I now will be following because of it.

The bonus game today, devised by Le Clown himself challenged us to post a picture pertaining to the contest.  This is my entry:

Why is A Clown on Fire like Vodka? Because they both make me happy and could eventually lead to a dangerous and destructive addiction….notice how empty that bottle is….

Yup, That’s What She Said.

Ah yes, the infamous “That’s What She Said”.  My love for this phrase is so strong that I have been named the TWSS Queen in the past by friends and coworkers.  I never miss an opportunity to mutter the words…even in inappropriate situations.  No one is safe around me when I feel the need to say it – not your kids, your mother, the pope…nobody.

I thought I would share some of my favorite TWSS moments with you:

  • A coworker of mine was tracking down a guest who needed to sign something.  When she finally found him she told him “I saw you on the escalator but I was going down as you were coming up…”  — that’s what she said.
  • I was trying to type in someone’s name into my email “to” field and couldn’t quite get the spelling correct so that it would pre-populate for me.  I called the person and said “It wouldn’t pop up for me so I couldn’t put it in” – that’s what she said.
  • I had done something at work to resolve a situation and my boss had responded via email with just these two words “Clam happy” yup I did, I had to respond with — that’s what she said.
  • A coworker and I were working on a situation and had to approach one of the “big wigs” with something.  She said to me “I hate to poke the dragon, but…” – that’s what she said.
  • My mom was helping a friend move her seat up in the car.  The seat was one of those manual ones with the lever instead of a switch.  Mom to her friend “See that thing there between your legs?  Grab it and pull!” – that’s what she said.
  • Just yesterday I overhead my coworker on the phone with someone and she said “It was really hard and I wasn’t sure how to hold it” – that’s what she said.
  • At the dinner table about a year ago, my husband had a funny TWSS moment.  I leaned over and whispered into his ear “That’s what she said”.  My nosy son, thinking he was missing a secret turned around and asked “WHO?? WHO IS SHE??”
