Happy New Year!


I have always felt that the antidote to obnoxious was a snappy comeback.

And I was looking for a blog topic to close out 2011, so...

Mr. RK and I went out to dinner, then stopped at the grocery store to get movie snacks. I am not a big party person, and always stay in on New Year's Eve to avoid the drunk drivers anyhow.

So the guy who rang us up at the grocery store is kind of a creeper - he got a little too friendly one time when Mr. RK was not there - and when he finished ringing up our non-alcoholic purchases he said, "Well, it looks like you guys are going to have an exciting time tonight."

I replied, "Actually, I'm a nymphomaniac with my own brewery."

I stole that line from a BBC show called Coupling, that sadly only made four seasons...

Mr. RK said he is proud to take me out in public, by the way. :)

Here's to more snappy comebacks in 2011. Happy New Year!

Haven't said hi in a while-
I had to drive back from work about an hour ago, n it was dangerous with all the idiots out-making turns from incorrect lanes n stuff... yikes.

Happy New Year RK!

Ooh I wish I could think that quickly on my feet. And you sure as heck were having a better new year than him. :)

Happy New Year, my friend.

How can anyone compete? You are the queen of snappy comebacks! Have I told you lately that you are a RIOT?

About the only snappy comeback I have is when people compliment me on Pooh Bear (very long story) sitting in my pocket.

I say, "He's my only friend."

Yapple Dapple, hope you had a spiffy New Year's Eve.

Oh, I love it!! I'll be borrowing that line next time someone gives me any shit while buying :D

Happy New Year, Chica!

Haha, nice. I love Coupling but it just wasn't the same after Jeff left.

Hope you have a great year!

You found a grocery store open? Every grocery store in my town was closed by 6pm. I of course found this out at 5:45pm. Had to quickly adjust my dinner plans for the evening.

Happy New Year everyone! Iasa, you are a true fan...and I agree.

Logical Libby said...

I am very proud of you. I probably just would have said "you Mom has a big evening." And then he would have cried.

Riot Kitty said...

L: Oh man! That would have been even better!
