You're too cute. I got my first bra in 5th grade too and some bitch snapped the back strap the first day I wore it to school. I shoulda clocked her one in the jaw.

lessssssssley: i heart you too! i can't even remember what the guy said but i just flipped out. wailing, kicking. it scared the shit out of me. losing control like that. though the little fucker deserved it, he was a smelly jerk-head anyway.

frogdiva said...

thanks for your comment

lesley said...

I've punched two creepy guys, but I've never gotten in a full blown fight. I've had dreams where I've lost control and started wailing on people and it scares the crap out of me even thinking about doing that. fighting is yucky.

poopee shmoopee said...

lesley: i totally agree. i'm too much of a control freak to lose control like that again.

Happy almost birthday!
You can celebrate by going to get a flu shot ;)

murl.the.squirrel said...

i can't whistle either. or roll my tongue or roll my r'rs. i do remember, however, when i learned how to blow a bubble with gum and my friend couldn't do it. but she could whistle so i guess we were even.

Hedy De Vine said...

Happy birthday, poopee monster!

What are your two tattoos and where are they?

poopee shmoopee said...

me: i promise i'll post something soon.

wendy: ok!

dave: thanks! oh goodness, getting your first bra and having people laugh at you is sort of like as if you had your first hard on while you were standing up in class and everyone noticed.

hedy: thanks, girl! i'll have to post pics of my tattoos at some point. i've got one above my left ankle and one at on my back at my waist. i'm planning to get a couple more but am putting it off until i can scrounge up a few hundred bones and decide on a design. 'cause i want to design them myself.
