petite merde // movita beaucoup

The other night, 2.0 told me that my underwear was on backwards.

movita: No. No, it’s not.

2.0: Are you sure? It looks lik-

movita: No.

2.0: But it looks like they are on backwar-

movita: I know how to put on my underwear, honey.

2.0: The big side is supposed to go on the back though, right? Are you sure you put them on righ-

movita: I know how to dress myself. My ass got bigger, okay?

2.0: Oh, okay. I just wanted to make sure they were on right. Because it looks like-

      In 2.0’s defence, he is usually trying to be helpful. Unfortunately, some help is the kind of help that you could do without!

    There is a fine line between helpful and asshat. Tell 2.0 he’s on the razor edge and best just step back! Waaaay back. (Also, may I suggest you employ a sewing machine to take in his undies on the side seam? Let’s see who’s laughing then.)

      Thank goodness he’s the most hilarious person I know. Otherwise he’d be dead by now.

    Was there ANY chance he was right?? 🙂

      No, Maureen. NO.

    The farmer once said to me, “Do you even HAVE eyelashes?”. Ugh…

    • movita beaucoup on February 27, 2017 at 1:25 pm

      So… you do have eyelashes, right?

    it’s because they put their own underpants on backwards on the regular, i think: they assume we do as well. we call that “over-helping” around here, and it’s used to describe times when my husband or my 6yo decides they know more than I do and would like me to do better.

    they are always wrong. but it makes them feel good to “help.”

    Thank you so much for making me laugh out loud at work! I now feel as though I can carry on with my Friday afternoon.
