"May I just say, I LOVE to hear you mad? I didn't know you had it in you, and I freaking love the phrase "give a rat's ass". You go girl!"
A direct quote from Bina.
I have to tell you this made me roll on the floor laughing. Seriously.
She didn't know I had it in me?!
Makes me question just what image I am projecting to you all? A sweet, peace-loving hippie? A granola-girl who only wants every one to "be happy?" Me skipping through meadows making daisy chains? What?
Just ask Hubby or Man-Child. They will tell you that I "DEFINITELY" have it in me to get mad. In fact, I can imagine their response if asked.
"Oh Lord! PLEASE don't get her mad. Especially if it's directed at ME!"
And yes, that would be the response from both of them (and probably a **few** others, that may or may not have had my venom directed at them)!
Now granted, I don't lose it as often as I used to (or for that matter, as spectacularly - there was that time the cake got taken for a ride to the woods.....which is now family legend and repeated often - although in all fairness? THAT cake had to go!). I believe the term is "mellowing with age." These days I'm more likely to go off on an inanimate object (say....the computer that is not behaving properly....yes, just ask my co-workers who hear me berating the computer, or any other piece of office equipment, on a daily basis) or the poor guy with broken English on the other end of the line as I'm trying to re-connect to the Internet that has been mysteriously cut off for no reason......or Ebay.
Yes Bina - I definitely "have it in me" to get mad and (as they say in this family) you don't want to "get my Irish" up because it can get ugly. And I can hold a grudge like you wouldn't believe.
So now that I've complety shattered your image of me as the sweet little southern belle...I'm off to make daisy chains and to tell everyone I meet, "Don't worry! Be Happy!!"
Thanks so much Bina! I needed that laugh today!!
