MY NEW FAVORITE EXPRESSION

I was emailing Shady Lane back and forth like we do most mornings and I was telling her about Bret Farve not retiring and continuing to play even when he should have retired. People kept telling him to but he wouldn't and now he's playing for fucking Minnesota. (now the important thing to remember is Shady Lane knows jack shit about football and could care less about footfall and only humors me when I talk about football cause she's my friend and loves me.)So after listening to me whine about Bret Farve and the Vikings, Vick and the Eagles, the Cowboys new stadium and I can't afford to go see them play unless I sell a kidney and I can't sell my organs cause I had hepatitis and can't, yadda yadda yadda...I get this email back from her.


BUILD A FUCKING BRIDGE AND GET OVER IT.


What did I ever do before she became my friend 34 years ago?

Nobody in the real world can afford to see pro football live anymore. That's what sports bars are for, and thank The Goddess for them!

In the Cowboys only knew what they were missing! They should hire you as one of the people who does cross-talk and commentary during the games. I bet that would be a whole new ballgame in a bunch of ways.

Love the shirt!

Okay, I fucked that up. He said, "Love the suit." Fuck my declining memory. Please.

So Not Wishy Washy said...

Ha ha ha ha!!!

My line is, "Get off the cross! We need the wood!"

Debra She Who Seeks said...

I have a friend who loves that expression too! Now all she has to say is "Build a bridge" and we know what she means without saying the rest. The next time she bitches about something, I'm going to use So Not Wishy Washy's "Get off the cross" line on her!

I'd like to order several cases of those shirts.

PS. Brett Favre is a whiny girly girl.

"Cut a vine and swing across!"

Two new phrases for me I see. that shirt is simply great!

YELLOWDOG GRANNY said...

if you google the expression you can find a website that makes the tshirts...
by the way..i did a rain dance last night and there are rain clouds gathering on the horizon..was going to roll the window up on the truck, but figured that would jinx it for sure..so cross your fingers...we need the rain.

It's so funny... I have never been to/never wanted to go to a live Vikings game before...but now that Favre is here in Minnesota, I do. I don't like football but I have LOVED Brett Favre ever since I saw him in "Something About Mary". LOL!
