  1. *howling with laughter*

    Oh GOD, I’m dying here–that’s utterly priceless. Sweetie, you probably scarred that poor boy for life. *snicker* I love it.

    However, I have to say, I’m a little amazed– Spanx have been around for several years now and Oprah’s only just now getting around to extolling their virtues?

    • I’m not sure if he was even capable of independent thought, poor soul.

      Spanx has some new products out on the market. Plus, the entrepeneur who developed them was featured, and she gave Oprah 1 million dollars for her all-girls school in South Africa. That was a tear-jerking moment!

  3. See, there’s the proof. For years I’ve said that those so-called customer service reps are, in truth, scripted bots that only *act* like they’re real. There’s no way in God’s green earth that a guy who was actually breathing wouldn’t have taken the bait, just once.

  4. You should have told hi you wanted to buy him a sense of humor. Hello? Isn’t it part of good customer service to attempt to be somewhat friendly. Sheesh. he could have gave you a little chuckle at least.

    Now I’m off to check out the garment. I hope it can make more than 10 pounds dissappear. I’ve really slacked on my workouts the last 2 months…

  6. YOU CRACK ME UP
    I know I keep saying that but you are so funny
    in a wholly natural way.

    DO YOU KNOW THIS?

    I am trying not to laugh out loud because the entire house is asleep (finally) and I’d rather not disturb the peace but…

    Girlfriend, you are a riot and a half.

    Not sure why you need that Spanx but take it from one who knows: I’ve worn them under Better Outfits and they Work. They do not hurt to wear. You can breathe. But your belly does go down and makes for a smoother line. Love you, Ms. Spanx. {}

    You too, the Divine Ms M! {}

    • For serious? I make you laugh? Ooooh, *is happy about that!* Laughter is a healing for the soul, isn’t it? It ranks right up there with the matzo ball soup (“Jewish penicillin,” as my Long-Island-born hubby calls it) we ate for dinner last night!

      ((Love you, too))

    • I love laughing with you, but darlin’, that Postum is no laughing matter! Here, friend o’ mine, try a mug of the goooood stuff: hazelnut/vanilla beans, fresly ground and brewed just for you!

  7. LOL. Yes, you must kill him!

    I was blushing to read that “you straddle sizes A and B.” Hearing him say that would have sent me into fits of laughter!

    Congrats on the prank award!!

    • A Mars vs. Venus episode, don’t you think?

      Thanks, Liz, for the congrats and vote of confidence. I had fun writing my essay and I hope everyone enjoyed reading the winning entries.

      • Yes indeed! I just went and read the entries, and the winner reminded me of one a couple friends and I pulled in college. We spent so much time in elevators on campus that one jokingly suggested they ought to have bar set up in the back that served people as they got on. We couldn’t do that, of course, but one evening we comandeered an empty elevator and visited floors, grabbing a table here, a lamp there, a stack of magazines. We set it all up so it was like a nice living room, and then pushed the first floor button. We all sat in the chairs, perusing mags. When the door opened, there was a well dressed woman standing there. We looked up from our mags at her, as if we were surprised to see her. She stared, and didn’t get on. Next stop, basement. We unloaded the contents of the elevator, and tore up the stairs to the second floor balcony and peeked down at the elevator lobby (it was a cathedral-like setting– three floors opened on the central hall). There she was, standing in front of the elevators, with a security guard, explaining her story.
        Finally the elevator opened, with nothing inside.
        I always wondered what she made of it.

          • You know, I’d forgotten all about it until I read that entry. We did have some fun times. The one that came to mind when I saw the contest was when, one summer during high school, my boyfriend and I went to toys r us and tested out all the squirt guns for range, and then drove around squirting people with their windows down. Some kid in an expensive convertible got mad and chased us up and down the hills until we finally lost him.

            Nothing I’d recommend– scared the daylights out of us. And anyway, it wasn’t nearly as funny as yours

          • Tito’s son told me stories about The Gloved One riding anonymously around Encino with his nephews, shooting saucer guns at cars they passed. I can’t verify it’s true, but can you imagine?!?

            By the way, I just got an email saying the cards I ordered (with your LOVELY Valentine’s Day image imprinted on the cover) shipped today. Yay!!!!

          • Wow!! What a concept!! At least ours weren’t harmful– and it was a really hot day!

            Of course, today, we’d probably have been expelled for carrying things that looked like weapons and pointing them at people. Times change *sigh*

            Hope you like the cards!

  8. LOL! My gosh, me thinks Jeff is very lacking in the sense of humour department. And I don’t think he’ll be winning any employee of the month awards either. šŸ˜‰

    Oh, and congrats on the contest!
