Random Thoughts

- I think that 99% of non-Jewish people don't know what a dreidel does but could tell you in a split second that it is made out of clay.

- The Lady Friend (Fiancee?) mispronounces "terrace" as "Terrance". You should see the reaction of the people at the reception halls we have spoken with when she asks if they "have a Terrence out back."

- I know (thanks to Google) that Tacoma means something about snowy mountains - but in my head everyone in that city went to town on taco night and are now in a taco coma.

- The worst time to be a bed wetter has to be asparagus night.

- The Lady Friendiancee and I use the same deodorant. Not the same brand. The same stick of deodorant. Is this more or less gross than sharing a toothbrush?

- Do you think if Eve had never taken a bite of that apple we'd all still be walking around naked? But not in the Garden of Eden - because the bible doesn't mention cable TV. I assume we would have still had all the technological advancements we have now to get us to this point of awesomeness - but we'd all be naked. And without all those stupid fucking clothes, no one would give a shit about Lady Gaga.

Paradise, indeed.

It's spelled dreidel. Clearly you are part of that 99% ;)

You share the same stick of deodorant AND you have 'asparagus night?'

Dude.

What. HAPPENED. To you?

Narm said...

Mary - thanks - I even Googled that shit.

I think the deodorant thing is only gross because you have armpit hair that probably gets stuck to it. This has been my main deterrent from using JP's. Should I admit that I've even considered using his?

PomJob said...

I'm more concerned about the scent issue than the actual cleanliness. My deodorant smells like coconut. So do you smell like coconut or does she smell like Old Spice? Or do you share a tube of unisex, unscented sweat preventer?

It's much less gross to use the same stick of deodorant. That's probably just efficiency. The question is, do you both smell like a man, man?

My husband and I use the same stick and I'd throw out my toothbrush if he ever used it. So based on that criteria I think sharing a stick of deo is waaaay less gross than sharing a toothbrush. You can see this is a very impartial criteria I am applying here.

My boyfriend and I use the same deoderant. It started b/c he ran out one day and it took him a couple days to get to the store. It continues b/c he feels like he gets better tips when he wears mine (he waits tables). So no, totally not gross.

Sharing toothpaste and deodorant is gross but not as gross as sharing the same squares of toilet paper.

You'll need at least a terrace and maybe a dedicated bar, for the DC blogging crowd alone!

Oh, and sorry to disillusion you but every dreidel I've ever touched has been made out of plastic.

And since it's a transliteration, you spell it anyway you damn well please. Throw in a silent q, if you want.

I'm completely cool with sharing a stick of deodarant with my girlfriend. Besides, I'm the one with the hairy armpits.

anna marie said...

I'm ok with sharing deodorant. I'm pretty sure the husband likes smelling like cucumber melon.

I have no idea what a dreidel does.

Ed said...

That's it.

It's officially time to stop calling her Lady Friend/Fiancee, and to start calling her what she is....The Boss.

the same stick of deodorant?

EW!

Amanda West said...

Dude, me and my husband use the same deoderant stick.

I didn't ever think it was all that weird.

Brandonian said...

I use the same deodarant as my girlfriend and use her toothbrush just to piss her off. Then I turn on every light in the house just to watch her explode. But then I have to watch gossip girl marathons and get my own beer! Is it worth it? Yes

Ok, after reading this, I can't tell whether to laugh or to feel slightly insulted. lol. I live in the Seattle area, and Tacoma is probably the biggest "ghetto" town we have, minus Bremerton. But I have to admit, I have considered the word "coma" to have something to do with people's lack of brains when it comes to driving over there. haha.

The technical term is "asparapiss."
