Thanks, Dad.

Last night, I was talking on the phone to my dad, when he felt the need crack open an egg of wisdom over my head.

Bone Daddy: Dear, if you want to get married, you have to do two things. First, stop being such a wise ass; and second, stop being so flip. Those things can be intimidating.

Bone Junior: Really? Because I happen to find those qualities quite endearing.

First of all, I don't even know what it means to be 'flip'. Then again, this is coming from the same man who on the night of my senior prom, told me I looked 'very sharp.'

And here I thought I wasn't married because I don't cook. Thank goodness for the wisdom of fathers.

WOW. I love the "you look sharp" comment. Dads are so funny! I'm sure you looked hottie-gorgeous at your prom! You aren't married because men are stupid, blind, retared, slow, bald (which can be good), and retared...again.

Flip as an adjective means to be "pert" or "flippant" or "informal" Don't worry, I had to google it. Pert means to be saucy, jaunty, stylish, chic, sprightly, and boldly forward in speech & behavior. Flippant means nimble, limber, and pliant.

Honestly, I'd hate to disagree wtih Bone Daddy but I like it...and I wouldn't change a thing. Keep your head up. You'll find the right guy (or gal?) for you. :)

Who cares about being married?

Its for the birds.

To love and be loved is what I want, and I want someone to love me back specifically for being "flip", being a wise-ass, and for being whatever else I am. Even if its unfavorable.

Please don't change. These are the things I love most about you :)

Ran across your blog. Love it!

Also, here is what I think about this stuff:

Those who want to offer sound advice usually offer more sound than advice.

If your dad was right, I'd never have gotten married...

Did he mean to finish that sentence, "Stop being so flip...ping good looking." Just wondering.

I think Andi's got the right idea. HA! Sash, I thought you weren't married because you were too busy spending your free time racing your hot new ride and recovering from boob jobs. Both of which are way more exciting than being married. And cooking.

Mikki is right. Men are often "retared." Thanks for the laughs Bone Junior, keep it gangsta, while I apply another coat of this here tare.

hey if you were back here in Philly you would be able to say you are not married because you choose not to be a barracuda and jump in the feeding frenzy anytime a single guy enters the stake. Next thing you know the girls her will start buying their own engagement rings...

Love the laughs from your blog..
