Mad Housewife My Ass
I asked Justin the other day if he would buy me a bottle of wine (or six) when he stopped at the store to pick up stuff to make this.
So, imagine my surprise when I opened the refrigerator door to find this:
What. The. Hell.
He thought it was funny.
You know, because I kind of am a mad housewife.
For those of you who watch Sex and the City (the shows, not the crappy movies), remember when Charlotte’s husband got her a cutout of a cardboard baby as a “joke” when they found out she couldn’t have kids of her own?
Yeah. It’s kind of like that.
I mean… I can’t imagine why he saw this and thought of me.
It’s not like there’s a resemblance.
*The best part is what the bottle says on the back: “Somewhere near the cool shadows of the laundry room. Past the litter box and between the plastic yard toys. This is your time. Time to enjoy a moment to yourself. A moment without the madness. The dishes can wait. Dinner be damned.”
YES! Why make dinner when you can have WINE instead?
I bought this just for the cover. I thought it was hysterical!
It IS pretty funny – even I have to admit. :)
That bottle is way too cute. Hope the wine is as good!!
You know what? It actually wasn’t too bad!
Love this post, I’ll have to check you out more often. I’ll look for this in the wine store~
Thank you! And I must say (as I’m sure you already know), you have one talented daughter!
lol Nice! I bought my grandfather a bottle called “Old Fart” for his birthday. I don’t think he really thought that was that funny either… although I did.
Oh, that is so, so wrong. So funny, but so wrong. :)
LOVE it! Our dear friends, Steve and Eric bought a bottle of “Grumpy Old Fart” red wine for Damon, as he is becoming a little crotchety in his “old” age!
You know, I’m thinking as long as he doesn’t bring home one called “Bitch,” I can take this in good spirits. Haha, get it? Spirits?
And Damon, crotchety?! I don’t believe it!
The chick on the bottle is pretty hot – I’d take it as a compliment. And definitely don’t ever let him come home with “Bitch.” I’ve had it, and it’s awful. You know how your first glass has to be really good, but as the night wears on you can switch over from the Grey Goose, to the Smirnoff, to the stuff made in someone’s bathtub? Not even way late in the night was “Bitch” palatable.
Yes, I’ve noticed a lot of those wines that spend a lot of time with marketing certain look are often lacking in taste. I’m no guru, but this one actually didn’t taste too bad to me. And I’ll take your word on Bitch!
And you’re right – the mad housewife is kind of hot. :)
2. the baby cardboard cutout WAS kinda insensitive. i mean. i always hated Trey anyway.
3. you don’t look mad in any sense of the word. you look determined and focused. amiright?
4. love it.
YES! You are right. Determined and focused. And possibly a little mad.
And Trey was a douche. If I’m allowed to use that word. Which I am, because it’s my blog. “I thought we’d have a giggle!”
Haha, I gotta admit, that bottle is pretty funny. And the similarities are uncanny!
Haha, I’ll take that as a compliment. ;)
[…] might play up the desperate housewife image a little too much, but in general, it’s good stuff. Which is why more and more middle class American men want […]
