Make a Wish

Just for the record, Lisa absolutely loves you all. She got a big kick out of reading your comments and sticking up for her.

I on the other hand was crushed, devastated you might say. Betrayed by my closest friends. You the blogging ladies, (and you know who you are) left me on the virtual alter like the groom to be of a runaway bride. Yes my poor dainty and fragile ego beaten down and spat upon. (are ya feeling the guilt yet?) I was barely able to drag myself out of bed today because of the shame and humiliation that was weighing me down. (how about now?) My dear sweet friends...why have you forsaken me so? (come on, I can go on all night) It is only now that I can bear to claw my way back to the computer to eek out another post. Woe is me..(insert wailing and gnashing of teeth here)

I had never really considered how many bananas bought the farm in our house before, so I decided to do a quick calculation. Seeing that number along with the two rotting corpses on the counter inspired me to write that post. So please rest easy knowing that I don't hold any ill will towards Lisa for offing a few bananas each week, and no, I don't lay awake at night worrying about it.

Whew, I feel better now.

If you're new here, don't give up yet, it's just part of the fun that is "A Word in Edgewise".

And now, on with the show.

Odat tagged me with the "Make a Wish" meme.

I'm giddy like a school girl that I actually know how to do these graphics thingamagigs now. I couldn't resist playing along.

Here's the rules:

1. Think about what it is that you want more than anything, what your heart's desire and fondest wish is, and what it is that you would wish for if you were to see the above wishing star flame across the night sky.

2. Right click and SAVE the blank graphic below.

3. Use a graphics program of your choice and place your wish on this picture:
4. Post the Make A Wish Meme and your wishing star on your blog along with these rules.

5. Tag as many people as you like so that there can be wishing stars all across the Blogosphere and ask them to please link back to Linda so that she can see what wishes others have made and share those wishes with others.

I knew I could count on you to make me laugh during my fever induced aimless walking about the house...

You know, you could have used a few guilt lessons from my mother :wink:

Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going back to bed.

Oh.. did you look near the bananas? I mean, wasn't THAT the last picture you took?


Matt-Man said...

Ha...Good Pic Jeff, you sniveling, shell of a man you. Cheers!!

Mel said...

Where's Gene when we need him?!


Geeze, what a whiner....

I am impressed with the new found talent for photoshop!
Maybe envious is a better word....

*waving at Lisa*
<----agreeing with katherine about the Thursday Thirteen (get out the calculator, times that by the two months and see if that doesn't give her a good start....LOL)

Mel said...

Oh wait......I forgot!

Pooooooor baby--being picked on so mercilessly......

Awwwwww.......poor thing.....

(how'm I doin'?!)

Dana said...

Of course ... NOW it's really not about the bananas. OK ... yeah ... I think I need to make a loaf or two of banana bread!

buffalodickdy said...

Truth be told, when the kids were home, we went through the same banana scenario... Haven't had banana bread in years now...

nitebyrd said...

Jeff, just for you - "Poor baby!"

Jeff B said...

Anndi- You poor sick thing you. Oh, and I'm sorry to hear you're not feeling weel either. (snicker)

Matt- With those kind of positive affirmations you should consider becoming a shrink.

Mel- Please don't encourage Gene!
Other than that you're doing great.

Dana- Make all the loves you want, just don't think I'm giving out my address anytime soon.

Buffalo- I knew I wasn't alone!

Nitebyrd- I feel like Eddie Murphy's character, the donkey, in Shrek..."See that, she called me a noble steed."

Bond said...

Cool graphic...

FYI..I have always done the food shopping...ALONE...thus no 'looks'

I am here for you worries!

Leighann said...

Please accept my sincerest condolences during your pity party.

Here's a banana! MUWAHAHA!

katherine. said...

I'm with Mateo....quit your belly aching....and EAT MORE BANANAS!

Anndi said...

Jeff - wait for it... ::blows raspberry at Jeff::
Oh.. I posted something you might like in The Luggage... because I'm sweet that way.

Bond was pussy whipped too.. he even wears an apron when he cooks, hehehe.

Travis said...

So now the banana is your totem fruit?

Nice job on the wish graphic!

Akelamalu said...

You got tagged too! Your wish made me LOL! :)

Jeff B said...

Bond- I feel a bond developing between us. (pun intended) You won't score any points with the ladies with that comment, but I appriciate it.

Leighann- Nice sucker punch!

Katherine- I just know your eyes rolled when you read that.

Anndi- But is that the only thing he wears when he cooks?

And you should put a heart stop disclaimer on that post! Wow!

Travis- Since I like to monkey around all the time I guess it kind of fits.

Akelamalu- Thank you my dear.

Leann said...

I was going to play my little villein but as I ran to get it I dropped it hurrying back to the computer and smashed the dang thing on the sorry you will have to have your pitty party without music.
Hee hee....

Anndi said...

Jeff - Hey, maybe that should be HIS version of a half-nekkid Thursday!

and thanks dear!

Jeff B said...

Leann- It's the thought that counts. Thanks, I think. (hehehe)

Anndi- As long as it's a view from the front, you know those little strings won't hide much in the back side!

Odat said...

ahahaha...I knew you would post a great wish!!! Besides being bananas, you're also nuts!
(Thanks for playing).

Linda said...

Hi Jeff!

Now I feel guilty but I have no idea what for!

That said, thank you so much for stopping by again and thank you even more for playing along with my meme. LOVE the sense of humor in your wish!
