Conversation with my friend Laura:
Laura: So you didn’t buy the taxidermied marmot? Were you drunk?
me: Of course not. I was just socially drinking. Not drunk drinking.
Laura: Drunk drinking?
me: Drunk drinking = drinking to get drunk. Which I don’t do.
Laura: Drunk drinking.
me: Or “drunking”, if you prefer. It’s shorter and probably more likely what you’d call it if you actually were out drunking.
Laura: Got it. Now I kind of want to go drunking.
me: And that’s why words are dangerous.
What you missed on my parenting blog on the Houston Chronicle:
What you missed in my shop (tentatively called “Eight pounds of uncut cocaine” so that your credit card bill will be more interesting.):
What you missed on the internets:
- Free Juanita Weasel stick puppet
- From the latest issue of O Magazine
- From Vanity Fair
- Kick-ass stuff I pinned.
- I’m really more of a jiggler.
This week on shit-I-didn’t-come-up-with-but-wish-I-did-because-it’s-kind-of-awesome:
This week’s wrap-up is brought to you by my newfangled friends at CoffeeTable, a (free!) iPad app that wants to be your bff and take you shopping—from the comfort of your very own couch / loveseat / pouf. Oh you want your favorite catalogs and exclusive sales and to buy your goodies in just two taps and a magical unicorn? It’s all here (maybe except the unicorn). YOU’RE WELCOME.
