bless your heart….

Bless her heart is such a great phrase. It’s one of those things that something people say to soften the blow of a really harsh comment. Example….”Bless her heart, she’s gained a little weight.” “She’s not the smartest girl around, bless her heart.” haha. People in the south say Bless her heart with pretty much every sentence. In reality this whole “southern hospitality” thing is regular rudeness covered up by phrases like “Bless your heart”

ok so that section was bonus because this post is really about email surveys. You know what I am talking about. You get an email forward with like 59 questions on it and you are supposed to fill out all the answers and send it to ten friends or a small country in the former USSR would explode or someone would get mono or something. I always pretended to hate those things. They would come in my mailbox and I would whine for a couple of minutes about them. But then I would spend the next 5 minutes reading what my friends had written and what the other people on the forward, including those whom I didn’t know, had to say about their favorite breakfast foods/toothpaste/and underwear choice. Then, ultimately would fill my own out and send it to about five people who wouldn’t think I was completely lame for doing it. My friend Rachel, bless her heart, used to send them to me alll the tiiime while I was at Taylor, but if it wasn’t for her I wouldn’t be feeling nostalgic about those precious surveys that helped support my procrastination problem for so many years. So, in honor of this nostalgic moment, and for today’s colt’s victory, here is an old survey brought up from the archives. Feel free to copy and past it in the comments section and fill out your own, I would love to pretend to hate reading your answers.
