Finally Friday!

This has been the longest week - following the longest A to Z month of April. I'm still thinking about my Reflections post that's supposed to be posted on Monday (Thank you for the week off!) but in the meantime, I've got other stuff to do - like leading my Girls Scouts on a camping trip this weekend.

But... thought I'd take a minute to share this. I had a ton of junk mail in my inbox this morning, but one really funny forward from a fellow scout leader, who will also be camping this weekend.... I read it and it sounds like I wrote it out myself. Tell me if it sounds familiar to any of you as well. Be honest.


(1) Fine : This is the word women use to end an argument when they are right and you need to shut up. 
 (2) Five Minutes: If she is getting dressed, this means a half an hour. Five minutes is only five minutes if you have just been given five more minutes to watch the game before helping around the house. 

(3) Nothing : This is the calm before the storm. This means something, and you should be on your toes. Arguments that begin with nothing usually end in fine. 

(4) Go Ahead: This is a dare, not permission. Don't Do It! 

(5) Loud Sigh: This is actually a word, but is a non-verbal statement often misunderstood by men. A loud sigh means she thinks you are an idiot and wonders why she is wasting her time standing here and arguing with you about nothing. (Refer back to # 3 for the meaning of nothing.) 

(6) That's Okay: This is one of the most dangerous statements a women can make to a man. That's okay means she wants to think long and hard before deciding how and when you will pay for your mistake. 

(7) Thanks : A woman is thanking you, do not question, or faint. Just say you're welcome. (I want to add in a clause here - This is true, unless she says 'Thanks a lot' - that is PURE sarcasm and she is not thanking you at all. DO NOT say 'you're welcome'.. That will bring on a 'whatever'). 

(8) Whatever : Is a woman's way of saying...Go to Hell... 

(9) Don't worry about it, I got it : Another dangerous statement, meaning this is something that a woman has told a man to do several times, but is now doing it herself. This will later result in a man asking 'What's wrong?' For the woman's response refer to # 3.
Have a great weekend!!!!


  1. Firstly congrats to us for completing our A to Zs. I do agree with those warnings for men but they won't bother to read them! And I hope the weather's good for your camping trip. It's going to pour with rain in the UK... again!

    1. Oh, 80% chance of rain here, too, and it's already drizzling. I have a history of bad-weather-scout-camping (blizzards, hurricanes, etc.) so not surprised.

      Congrats on finished A to Z - I'm interested to read everyone's thoughts next week ;-)

  2. Nothing and Fine are two that definitely made it into my vocab. :(

  3. Excellent, I think I hit about 8 out of ten of those. The other half here was amused as well.

    I'm a new follower, still making my way through the A to Z list. Nice to meet you. Hope you will drop by my blog for a look, too.

  4. Left an award for you on my blog today (Sunday)


Go ahead - leave a comment! You know you want to! But don't be Anonymous - that'll just get you deleted. And who wants that?
