Are they really fooling themselves

OK my “straight/gay” thread wasn’t clear enuff so let me try a different approach.

You say: I have a receding hair line

If it’s receding past your ears I say your bald.

You say: I have wheels

If you’re 38 years old you have a car (20 year olds have wheels)

Any other good example of this?

BTW this post is intended with humour and in the spirit of fun :slight_smile:

My 34 year old sister titters : “I still get proofed all the time when I buy beer!”

I say “Yeah, 15 years ago!”

My husband says “I think I’ve put on about 5 pounds since my accident” (motorcycle)

I say “Oh, that would explain why I had to get pants with a waist 4 inches bigger then last time!”

(close captioned for the sarcasm impaired)

Some mornings it just doesn’t seem worth it to gnaw through the leather straps.

Lol! That’s like my husband who says “My pants are really baggy because that’s the style now.”

No, it’s because your waistline has gone up 4 sizes and your legs aren’t getting any longer!

I have an uncle who wears this jet black toupee all the time. We never say anything, so I really do think he’s fooled himself into thinking that we dont know it’s a rug.

“proofed”? I’ve never heard this term before (had to read it twice to understand) what part of the country is this terminology from?

(btw, where I’m from they say “carded”)

“Cluemobile? You’ve got a pickup…”

Markxxx, I like to think that most of us understand this and your other post as being humorous, and could resist the urge to jump on the PC bandwagon, so don’t be to hard on yourself. There are some who feel its their mission in life to tell others how to think and speak, but their the same people who make jokes into harassment, and unpopular opinions into crimes. I on the otherhand like a good laugh, so keep on offending if it has potential to be entertaining!

That could be a NY or Northeast expression…it’s even printed on manufacturers signs at the store. “Proofed” and “carded” are the same thing :slight_smile:

Hey Zette, is that your husband in the lawn chair? :smiley:

If you’re over 30 and dating someone 5 years younger then it’s no longer called ‘Robbing the cradle’.

The ones I really can’t stand are the ones who say. (they’re 35) “All my friends say I look 25.” To wit I say "Well you better hang on to those friends…They are few and far between).

I am 35 (I deal with a lot of people via the phone) people will ask me how old do I look. I say 35. If anyone saw me they would say there is a guy in his mid-thirties.
