Help me out, people.

May 2, 2008

Journal, Lauren

Is it really that good?

I’ve decided to change careers. I’m done teaching – instead I want to be one of those ladies who sits around eating yogurt all day, comparing it to everything else in life. “This is better than (verb) (adjective) (noun/situation) good.” You know what I’m talking about? The two who obviously have some sort of ‘flavoring’ in that yogurt?

To have a successful audition, I’m going to need some good lines, so help me out. How good is this yogurt? Is it ‘better than skating with Tonya Harding good’? ‘Better than smelling frying bacon good’? Help! Multiple suggestions are welcome.

    Not smelling frying bacon -- Better than bacon mats good. But can anything be better than that?

    …better than baby sleeping through the night good.
    …better than nasal congestion relief good.
    …better than winning the powerball lottery good.

    (But seriously, any of the above three is better than yogurt. Yogurt is good about once a year and then I need a while to like it again…)

    … finally got satisfaction from Verizon customer service good.
    Sorry, that’s all I’ve got. Long story.


  6. Lloyd Said on:

    …better than being caught up on your grading good.
    …better than annoying kids being sick good.
    …better than Cats, I would see it again and again, good.

    I think that about covers it.

    • Karla Said on:

      Oh no -- I don’t think anything can be better than Sting singing at your birthday party…


      • Lauren Said on:

        I would hold my breath in a vat of yogurt for Sting to sing at my birthday party. *sigh*


        • Beth Said on:

          That paints the most hilarious picture…

          But really, don’t you think his voice would be muffled if your ears were submerged in yogurt? Not to mention you wouldn’t be able to feast your eyes…
          *sigh* Sting *sigh*
