Friday Fluff ~ and other random happenings...




I was driving through town the other day and saw a billboard for a local radio station. This station has been around since I was a teenager. Back then they played hard rock music.

Now they play "Classic Rock."

It occured to me that they are playing the exact same music, but because it is 25...(cough-cough)something years later, it is now called, Classic Rock.

Same music, but now it's "Classic."

That got me thinking...

Wendy's has a Classic cheeseburger...same burger...years later...now it's a Classic.

What about the old Mustangs and muscle cars of our day?? Same cars as before...now their "Classics."

That old pair of Doctor Scholl's sandals in the back of the closet...now "Classics."

Can we do this...

Wednesday night's lasagna is Thursday's "Classic" lasagna!

Why not?!

So I've concluded that the wrinkles and grey hairs don't make me old,
they make me a "Classic."

So I went to my "yearly" (actually year-and-a-halfly) check up this week. My doctor is an old friend (girl-friend) and there's nothing like catching up on what the kids are doing while your feet pointed at the ceiling.


But this is not as bad as when I am answering all the nurses questions and I tell her the ages of my children...20, 18, 16 and 3. "Wow" she states, "kind of like having a grandchild huh?!" (Clenched teeth *grin*...eyes squinting)..."yes, kind of like that."



Also...am I the only one that stresses about how fast to dis-robe when the nurse leaves the room? I wish there was like a little switch I could turn on that worked a light in the hall so that it would go from red to green when I was ready. It's really silly because they are about to come in and see the whole show anyways, but I am traumatized by the thought of them coming in WHILE I'm in the process of taking my clothes off and before the little gown is on.



So now I put the gown over my head while fully clothed and then take everything off as fast as possible while that is over my head- by the way, you have to plan ahead for this and wear button down shirts.

In honor of Mother's Day, here are some fun quotes for women:



"I refuse to think of them as chin hairs. I think of them as stray eyebrows." -Janette Barber-



"You know the hardest thing about having cerebral palsy and being a woman? It's plucking your eyebrows. That's how I originally got pierced ears." -Geri Jewell-



"I'm not going to vacuum 'til Sears makes one you can ride on." -Roseanne Barr-



"I'm not offended by all the dumb blonde jokes because I know I'm not dumb . . and I'm also not blonde." -Dolly Parton-



"I want my children to have all the things I couldn't afford. Then I want to move in with them." ~ Phyllis Diller



and finally...



"My mother had a great deal of trouble with me, but I think she enjoyed it." ~ Mark Twain


Happy Mother's Day! Love, Sue

I enjoyed this post, and the quotes! And YES, I too stress about the quick disrobing, which is ridiculous - but I do it anyway, so you're not alone!
LOVED the "classic" thing, too, and I'll be using that term myself now!
Thanks!

Oh I love it!!! Too funny on the quotes and your story about the office visit? You are NOT the only one. I am the fastest "dresser" (or better said un-dresser) in the East when it comes to getting in those flimsy little Dr. office robes... (smile)

Happy Mother's Day to you!

Grace said...

Wishing you a Happy Mother's Day, too!

D-Ann said...

Happy Mothers Day..
(I guess I am classic, now that I'm 25...)

What do you mean you get robes? I've only been given paper "gowns". They tear easily, did you know that? It's best to put them on before you sit on the table. I want to go to your doctor. I'd rather wear a robe than paper.

Happy Mother 's Day

I had my "yearly" or two yearly exam this week too. I blogged about part of my experience too. Anyway...I barely made it out of my clothes and into my robe before the doctor came in. I didnt even get the sheet unfolded first.

Alesia said...

Sue,
This gave me maniacal fits of laughter. I know EXACTLY what you mean!

Happy Mother's Day, to all here!

Deb said...

you're not alone...I do a quick change too!

Mocha with Linda said...

Happy Mother's Day.

And as of this month, my college diploma is now a classic! Yikes!

Loved the office visit scenario - I'm right there with you! - and the Mother's Day quotes!

Dionna said...

I think that is so funny - your thoughts on your fast switcharoo changes in the doc office. I have changed really quickly too - but now my doctor DOES have a switch. I click the green one when I'm ready. SOOO nice!

Denise C said...

Happy Mother's Day to you too my friend!!!

Roo said...

heheh
ahhh yes! I AM THE SAME WAY! my dr is a sweet lady and we often talk about all sorts of things while in a very uncomfortable position. (for me!) it always strikes me later what a funny picture that is.

oh the joys of womanhood! mine are about to intensify as there are around 57 days until i deliver the newest little blessing.

Love Friday fluff, even on Monday!

Xandra said...

LOL about the stress of getting undressed/dressed in the exam room! Sometimes I feel like I'm half in-half out of my bra and my underwear is on inside out, but at least it's all covered!! I really like the button on the wall idea...

Jessica said...

Loved your description of the Dr.'s office "presto-chang-o" scenario! Made me laugh so hard!
