Mother knows best

telephone Several months ago, my mother called me.

Mom: “I’ve ordered something for you and Mr. Strong.  You are going to LOVE it.”

Me: “Cool.  What is it?”

Mom: “It’s a magic bullet.”  OMG!  Why would she do this?  We barely even talked about the birds and the bees when I was growing up… It was more comfortable to ask my friend’s mother to help me buy the monthly necessities.

Me: “Uh… Mom?  Why?”  What do I say?  This is so embarrassing! 

Mom: “Because I knew you’d love it.  And it has all kinds of attachments.”  Holy carp!  I can’t stand the visual of my puritanical mother shopping in one of *those* stores…and attachments?!  What the heck?

Me: “I’m not sure we need one.”  Really, I can’t accept a gift like this from my MOTHER.

Mom: “Your step-dad loves when I get this out because he knows he is getting a treat.”  Agh!  Lalalalalalalalala…

A couple of days later, the mailman brought my new surprise.

magic bullet 

For some strange reason, I blush every time I make a smoothie.

Haha. It's really too bad it's not the other kind. Isn't that a Magic Rabbit?

I've had my Magic Bullet for a few years now. My son even uses it to make scrambled eggs (like a bowl and a fork isn't easier?).
Maybe I need the "other" kind?

Jan said...

ROFLMAO!!!! Thank you for this.

Due to circumstances beyond my control, I have to start my Project365 over. But I WILL be back! I miss you!

I always feel like smoking after a good smoothie, don't you?

Frogs in my formula said...

So, um, does it do double duty? Heeheee.

Paula said...

Yeah, we're never old enough to have "the talk" with parental units. When I want to throw my son off I bring up sex, then he's in full retreat. And we had lots of talks when he was growing up. It just goes to show that some things never change. Happy smoothies!

mama-face said...

LOL. What would you have done if it had been a different magic machine?
=) Holy carp.

I like that "Holy carp" thing. I always say "Holy mackeral" and feel like a dork doing it. Glad to know I'm not the only one to say Holy fish instead Holy sh*t.

TechnoBabe said...

I get such a kick out of the way we all communicate!! This is so funny. And the fact that you blush whey you use the Bullet is part of the fun of life. Great post.

otin said...

LOL! Even I know what the Magic bullet is! Silly!

I have been following that link for Elizabeth.

Fragrant Liar said...

You know, my magic bullet is just eating through the batteries. I totally need to get one I can plug in! Way more opportunities to get full and satisfied at the same time. ;-)

Kulio said...

perfect!

Christine Gram said...

For some reason I did not think of what i think you were thinking of. Yea! I'm still young and naive.

Ann's Rants said...

NO WAY.

This is hysterical.

H.K. said...

Maybe the magic bullet has more than one use?

Smart Mouth Broad said...

LOL! You are too funny. I'm not sure how you've managed to miss the ads for this "special gadget" but I think it's hysterical!

We have one in my office. I'll never look at it the same.

Chief said...

This is the winning post of the week for me!

I love it! OMW!!!

LMAO!

Mrsbear said...

LMAO. Magic Bullet totally sounds raunchy, although I've wanted one since I watched the commercial, that thing can do everything...well, except that original thing you thought of, don't think that was its intended purpose.

Mandeek @ 4 Quarters of Me said...

lMAO! The whole time I am reading I am thinking, "I hope she finds out this is a blender thing and not a sex toy"... ha ha ha!

By the way, I have one and love it! I have had mine for 4 or 5 yrs. use it all the time.

Bethany said...

A Free Man said...

Cristin said...
