The Gospel According to My Aunt Al

  • My cousin: Can you put on your glasses and take a look at this...?

    My aunt: You need to (drag on cigarette) get out of this house (i.e. go to the hospital).



  • My aunt was flipping channels when she landed on Lord of The Rings which I told her that I had really enjoyed.

    Me: Have you seen Avatar?

    My aunt: I don't watch that kind of s*@t.




  • My aunt: Come on, now, work with me...


  • A statement that my aunt makes when she feels someone is being too diplomatic.



  • About my Sunday malaise:

    You can't win; you have five days stacked up against two.



  • Mental illness is rough.

    A comment that my aunt will typically make in connection to difficult coworkers.




  • Regarding my cousin's possible depression...

    She (drag on cigarette) just gonna have to shake it off.




  • On why she will not loan people cigarettes.

    If you smoke, you need to have your own cigarettes.




  • You must not know how to hang up.

    After I got kidnapped into a rather awkward conversation.




  • How long have you been working? Ain't no end to work.




  • I don't see why they (commentators) are still discussing it; they gave them the points.


    On the Green Bay (28) Dallas (0) game (score) right before halftime on Nov. 7th when the Packers intercepted the ball and there was a question about whether the player's knee was down before the ball was swiped.

    2. I was thinking the same thing as TJ!! too funny.
      my husband has some pretty wacky off the wall random things he says alot--of course interspersed with some cuss words.
      this morning he was reading my cover letter for my job aps. he said,
      "holy sh!t this is a good cover letter. I wanna hire you and I don't even have a job for you."
      It was actually one of the sweetest things ever :)

    4. @TJ,

      Hmmm, I'll have to see how I can get around that legal thing. ;)



      @Angela,

      Glad you got a laugh out of it.



      @midlife_swimmer,

      I'ma tell my aunt that you send your regards.



      @gingersnapper,

      It is, isn't it? :)


      @Heather,

      What your husband said is pretty sweet.

      Good luck with the job hunting.



      @Diane,

      You hit the nail on the head. I wish, especially, that I were more practical like my aunt.
