I know some very funny people who crack me up all the time. Here’s some of my favorite quotes. Not from famous people. Just from my people.
“I was going to go to Vegas on my 40th Birthday, but I got a divorce instead” – said by genius new friend within 10 minutes of meeting each other. That’s how I knew she was my kind of folk. I think this is what her memoir should be called!
“Money isn’t life mom.” – said by an 8-year-old boy in Target who wanted to buy a $50 Lego set. Lego sets….I think they were the real cause of the ’08 financial meltdown.
“How can I fly with eagles when I’m surrounded by turkeys?” – said by an old co-worker who dropped jewels like this all the time. She is missed.
“Middle School is the ultimate rated R movie mom!” – said by a 13-year-old girl trying to convince her mother of letting her watch rated R movies (great quote – answer is still NO).
“I’ll just be here in the corner, chewing on wet cigarettes butts if you need me” – said by the most hysterical person I’ve ever worked with. She can find a funny sliver lining on any situation – thank god for her.
“Is that a taco?” – said by a friend who was confronted at a party by someone he had been ignoring for months. When cornered and asked to explain his disappearance he panicked and said the now famous line and walked away. There were no tacos anywhere. I think I peed my pants that night. This line is now ubiquitous with any situation in my life that warrants getting out of dodge fast!
