I'm Very Sorry


The Crotchety Old Lady has threatened me with bodily harm gently reminded me that pestering you, my favorite reader asking anyone for gifts commemorating my birth, my bloggiversary, or even National Joe Day, is in poor taste. She also yelled at the top of her lungs kindly suggested that perhaps I had enough useless crap I was blessed with all that I needed.

She also wanted me to let everyone know that she doesn't shop for my gifts at the Texaco station (despite the faint aroma of Hi-test) as plenty of places sell Slim Jims and car air fresheners. She also suggested that I wouldn't need as many car air fresheners if my diet didn't include so many Slim Jims, but that is a debate for another day.

It looks like I am going to have to write a letter to the birthday fairy to get everything on my list.

What an adorable puppy! Is that your puppy or a stock photo? Do you know what breed it is?

We are looking to ad a canine member to our family, otherwise I wouldn't be gushing so. Lol!

Da Old Man said...

@ Lola: It is some photo I found on the net. But I'm pretty sure it's a beagle.
If I were to get a puppy, I'd get a pappillon.

ettarose said...

DOM, it looks like the only thing you will get from that fairy is a sexually transmitted disease!

Sherry said...

Yep, I want to know the identity of the fairy. Looks somewhat like the person in the "caption this" photo last week. :)

dizzblnd said...

Well Dom, she is absolutely no fun! Maybe the birthday fairy will come through for you.

Lauren said...

My boss has papillons. They are adorable. I hear they are one of the smartest breeds. Maybe that is what we shud all get you. Hmmm

Don said...

It's a beagle--bugle? Maybe a bagel? Hell, good luck with the birthday fairy anyway. You weren't being tacky though. Just desperate.

ReformingGeek said...

That fairy looks like one of the runners at my last race. I'd much rather have the puppy.

I'll be happy with your leftover birthday gifts.

Lady Sarcasm said...

I still heart your wife LOL She's hilarious even behind the scenes. She's got to be a power source of some kind, to make you blog about what she says.. Then again my hub has tried the same on me, making me "clear up" things so to speak. Pfft I say. Let them get their own blog, and chit chat in defense that way.

Lin said...

That woman is a buzz-kill. I hate when people remind you of manners and what's "appropriate". What fun is that? Sheesh.

She can rest easy, I wasn't going to buy you anything anyway. :)

C.B. Jones said...

Just as well...I ate the tapioca anyway.

Charmaine said...

I like that woman. Flat out.

Da Old Man said...

@ Etta: He seems nice. Kind of like Santa without all the good press.

@ Sherry: Could have been. I'm sure he gets around.

@ Dizz: I know. She is taking a lot of fun out of my special weeks.

@ Lauren: They have that rep. And they are so darned cute.

@ Don: MMMM. Bagels.
Mrs. needs to go to the store.

@ Reforming: I have a feeling I'm getting the middle of a donut.

@ Lady Sarcasm: Yeah, she's ok, I guess

@ Lin: Don't I know it.

@ CB: That is one of my 5 favorite pudings.

@ Charmaine: She's ok by me, too.

Patricia Rockwell said...

I've been asking my husband for diamond earrings for my birthday for years. He finally got me a vacuum cleaner. So my question is, "Did you get your wife what she wanted for her birthday?"

Michelle said...

Old Man so how OLD will you be turning on the 27th of March? Like really old? Do you need a walker or perhaps an old man scooter to get around faster??

Let me know OK?


Lipstick said...

LOL about needing air fresheners b/c of Slim Jims. Mr. Lipstick loves him some Slim Jims so I know ALL ABOUT IT.

Da Old Man said...

@ Patricia: Of course. I bought her diamond earrings a few years ago, and take her away for her birthday every year.

@ Michelle: National Joe Day is the 27th. My birthday isn't then.
It's a couple days later. I'll be really old.

@ Lipstick: Yes, they do have a effect.

Wow, when I had commented on an earlier post that my birthday was also coming up, I didn't realize that it was also National Joe Day! I feel all special now. Does it matter that my name isn't Joe?

Or should I change my name? :D

Why? said...

We always want what we can't have! You wife seems to be telling you that.

Da Old Man said...

@ Hillbilly Willy: True words, my friend

@ Kalos: Check it out on the google. It's the day you get to change your name to Joe.

@ Why: She tells me that a lot

Michelle said...

March 29th???


kalos_eidos said...

I googled it like you said, Crotchety. I'm going out for my birthday; I am SO going to wear a name tag that says "Hello, my name is Joe"!
