Is It Wrong to Dope Slap the Man in Brown?

Last week, the Big Brown Truck stopped in front of my house. It had two Men in Brown, something we only see in December. I went outside before they had exited the truck because

IT'S THE CHRISTMAS SEASON AND WE'RE GETTING A PACKAGE!!!! WoooHoooo!

One Man in Brown--not our usual--was approaching the house with the handheld tracking computer. The usual Man in Brown was in the truck retrieving a box when he yelled out, "Make sure the signer is over 21!"

My first thought was WoooHoooo!!!! Wine!!!!!

Then, the new Man in Brown yells back, "Yeah, she's definitely over 21!"

Good feeling gone. Definitely gone.

  3. Sorry for giggling, but here's another one for you: the twenty something office girls discussing how old their mother are. "Oh, my mom is really old. She is like 46". EXCUSE ME!! Forty six (or 44, ahem) is NOT reeeaallly old!!

  4. LOL! It's the use of the word "definitely" that really stings.

  5. 1) I thought you were going to say they stopped in front of your house but didn't have a package for you. I have had that happen - I thought my head would explode.

    2) Good thing they don't work for tips.

  9. And then I'll bet he called you "Ma'am"...

    Giggling (only because I'm older than you and know what's coming up by the time you reach 50-something...)
