I sweat like my fawtha

by statia on May 10, 2004

One of the women I work with, has kind of adopted me as her surrogate kid here in the office. In the sense that she’s trying to make a lady out of me. She’s always trying to get me to stop swearing (which, for those of you fine folk that know me, know that I swear a lot. Me giving up foul language, isn’t ever going to happen). The constant attempts are futile, because I haven’t changed. I’m amusing (at least to myself I am), and I make the other mates here laugh at my stupid antics. It works for me. It keeps me sane here, otherwise, I just might have to go postal here at Sporty’s workplace o’fun.

The benefit of our interactions, is all of the things that she’s learned from me. It makes me so proud. Albeit usually ends up with her shaking her head, and telling me she’d have been better off without knowing. I still feel it’s my civic duty to educate her, you know, I don’t want her learning that stuff out on the streets.

Today’s topic: Swamp ass. After my trip to the gym on Saturday, I was pretty rank, and pretty sweaty. An hour on the elliptical will most definitely ensure swamp ass. I’m not sure if she was stunned that I had said swamp ass (though, by now, she should know not to be suprised at anything that comes out of my mouth), or that she had never heard of it.

I can see that when I explain salad tossing to her, I’m going to have to take a more gentle approach.

If the first thing she says when you mention tossing salad is, “Oh, I love a tossed salad”, try not to laugh too much. The older folks, well… they just are naive. Poor little beggars.

(Um, tossed salad does refer to ass-licking, right? In my day, we enigmatically called it “ass licking”…)

LOL. Swamp Ass! LOL Reminds me of the days when I used to own/drive a VW SuperBeetle. Talk about thighs sticking to the seat and sweating like a pig! ROTFL
