I think everyone has one of those friends that when they open their mouth, you just never know exactly what to expect. My boss, Rosie, is one of those people. She says these random phrases and nobody is ever quite sure where they came from, but I will tell you this... They are freakin' hilarious. So, for your entertainment:

(Translations in italics.)

1. Well, that'll go over like a turd in a punch bowl. (That isn't a very good idea.)

2. What a waste of skin. (Describing somebody who is lazy.)

3. That'll knock a buzzard off a shit wagon. (Can you believe it?)

4. What? You got a date with an egg and if you break it, you're gonna have to beat it? (What's your big hurry?)

5. What a toadload. (Describing somebody who is clueless.)

6. Dee-da-boo! (A general exclamation that is versatile enough to be used in most conversations.)

7. She's just a yummy-mummy. (Describing the women who come to the pool all decked out in makeup and jewelery with their small children in tow.)

These are just a few of my favorites. You can never tell what the hell is going to come out of her mouth. Last night, at our manager's meeting, Rosie actually asked us to explain a gesture she'd seen the lifeguards doing. It was "The Shocker!" We told her and Rosie thought it was one of the funniest things that she'd ever heard. Rosie never fails to entertain, that's for sure!

Peace, love, and oreos,

I've heard 1, 2 and 3. The rest are ones I intend to use in the future.

I love colorful people. They make life less boring.

She sounds like a fun boss!

BTW, I'm pretty sure you actually posted a picture of a turd in a punch bowl.

I will never be able to drink punch again.

Dave: My personal favorite is the "date with an egg" one, because it took me a while to get the innuendo there. Sorry about the punch, but can you believe that is what comes up on Google images for "turd in a punch bowl"?

Blogarita: She's a total riot!
