WW (Fill in the Blank) Do?

When I find myself in times of trouble, no one who is either a mother or named Mary comes to me.

Probably because I have no words of wisdom.

Let me be.

Instead, when placed knee-deep in the ickiness of great duress, I ask myself. . .

. . . What Would Patty Do?

Because Patty is da bomb.

She is the woman who is the yin to my yang in all difficult situations. Within the body of a birdlady beats the heart of a lion.

While I tortoise, she is direct. While I am fighting the urge to slowly curl into a fetal position and hum, she is the one with all the right questions and all the right actions.

Yet, for some strange reason, this cartoon somehow struck a chord with me:

from "Pardon My Planet"

Just don't tell Patty.

Please.

She kind of scares me.

my little birdlady heart was all a flitter.........thank you for your kind words. However, I would never wear sandles unless they are like flip flops and have a toe seperator as my toes over lap.
Sometimes my inner monalog filter doesn't catch what my fine controll button is trying to send it. As Scarlett O would say fidell dee dee.

Countess of YY: To my mind, your lack of inner monologue is definitely one of your charms.

As for the toe thing? Eww. TMI.

Countess MPM: The sun'll come out Tomorra...

(but you can always wear sandals in the house)

Countess AG: And loving them?

So right.

Several times a day at work, I'm compelled to ask myself "what would Zeus do?" And so help me, one of these days, I'm gonna do it.

Count Cormac: Please tell me that you don't work in a place with any pillows around...

Most def NSFW!!

Cormac Brown said...

No, no pillows...

"Most def NSFW!!"

Hey, I should get my middle name changed to those four letters.

I ask myself 'What Would MARTHA Do' on a daily basis. I have never made a wrong decision when I handle my affairs her way. She and I are BFF...she just doesn't know it.

And sandals. ONLY if I have had a pedicure.
