Sunday Confessional: hypocrisy and hygiene
Forgive me bloggers for I have sinned. Again.

I posted a comment anonymously on a site I regularly visit because I just didn't feel like dealing.
This weekend, I also inadvertently left a manhole cover in place for 29 hours. Should toxic shock syndrome ultimately overtake me, I leave my blog to you, as these days the cats are finding it increasingly difficult to type.

Edit: To give you a little background on the manhole cover reference (as if you wanted more), my aunt used to have code names for all of these things so she could talk about them in public. For her annual ob/gyn visit, the nickname was "getting my oil changed." That way, when she referred to them, people didn't catch on so quickly. So there you go: manhole doesn't hold even the tiniest bit of vulgarity that you'd hoped.

And come to think of it, she probably would have gotten more questions about manhole covers on her shopping list than if she had just written tampons . . .

See, now because I'm such a nosy little devil, I'm intrigued (about the blog comment, not about the. . .erm. . .manhole cover. Can the cats at least dial 911?)

It happens to the best of us!

Blogger Megarita said...

Blog means never having to say you're sorry. And I'm really disturbed by the term "manhole cover." As opposed to more genteel "Ponies." Haha.

Blogger Wicked H said...

No worries, absolved once again.

Carry on....

My my...such a quick post, and yet I've learned so much. A term for lady things. That commenting anonymously probably ticks you off. So informative! I've noted all that I've learned.

I bet the cats find it increasingly difficult to type because of all the cat humping, eh?

Kris, my only advice is "Stay Free" which applies to the anonymous commenting and the plugs.

I call the boxed wine!

Blogger Biscuit said...

This is reminding me of all the "exploding man holes" in Georgetown. Boy, do I wish that would start up again. Watching the news was never such a riot!

Blogger Dave said...

How dumb I am: I immediately thought, "I didn't know Kris worked in construction..."

Seriously.

Blogger kitkat said...

Yes, it took me several reads of this post to figure it out-never heard that one. But, I'm glad to know I'm not the only one who reads the labels! Hah.

Okay...you cracked me up on a Sunday. That's pretty good stuff. Hope you had a god...er...good weekend.

I got a new chair which has made me too lazy to deal too...

Blogger Lulu said...

I still read read the labels, everytime I open a new box. I don't know why.

I don't think I have ever had such an easy word verif.

Blogger LBseahag said...

I'm impressed that it stayed up there that long!

Blogger Poppy Cede said...

It took me 11 seconds to figure out why "manhole cover" meant the same thing as tampon (cuz I understood the toxic shock reference but not the words used for a tampon, ohhhh....it must be the paint fumes).

Kris, we love you no matter, come back from your toxic shock and curl up with a good book. Two periods ago I stuck another tampon in with one that had been there for 10 hours because I couldn't feel the other one and had forgotten that status of my "manhole". Oh, that's fun to say. :)

Blogger Lulu said...

I have a friend who had sex with one in. She totally forgot about it, and didn't remember till the next day. That was pretty funny.

Blogger nutty said...

Hail Mary. You're forgiven.

Blogger Bobby said...

I get in trouble whenever I leave my manhole cover open.

They I get yelled at when I would like to keep it covered.

You just can't win sometimes.

The word "manhole" makes me laugh every time.

Holi crapoli girlfriend!

Blogger Neil said...

Jeez, I had to call Sophia to figure this one out. Now I get it!

Blogger Jessica said...

hmm, I am a true believer in the rights of all bloggers to make anonymous responses! :) Girl, check out my blog if you have time, I'm totally having a traumatic weekend, feel free to comment or offer advice. HELP!

Blogger Shirazi said...

I am just curious. Will follow here.

Blogger Sub Girl said...

hahahaha kris, it stayed in place for that long?? i'm impressed.

Toxic Shick Syndrome?!?

Didn't they used to open for Anthrax?

I don't know if I can forgive the "anonymous" comment thing though. I'm very disappointed.

Ha shick!!

I should correct that, but it's too funny. I hope the razor guys don't get pissed off, they'll cut me up with 3 times the blades a Ninja would use!

i refer to my period as george. so whenever it's that time of the month, my friend george has come for a couple day visit.

Blogger Melliferous Pants said...

I use fun sticks during my monthly curse.

Are you okay from the manhole debacle?

Blogger kimmay said...

have you ever accidentally inserted two manhole covers and not realized it until you remove one and find that there is another? not fun, believe me.

Blogger Jürgen Nation said...

Oooh, I like "manhole." Decidedly less vulgar than my standards: "riding the cotton pony," or "I've got to shoot up now."

I never claimed to be ladylike.

Blogger Cheryl said...

Yeah that would raise more questions. Anyway I've had that happen and all was fine. Don't worry.

Blogger KlevaBich said...

I've called 'em manhole covers for years, but generally referring to the external device (aka mouse mattress) rather than the tampon. And at my house it's Aunt Martha visiting -- can't remember the whole mnemonic but it ends with "Rag Time's Here Again." Charming, I know.

My inner 12 yr old also recommends a trip to the home improvement store, plumbing aisle. Look for the "cockhole cover" and try not to snicker.

For a second (and only a second) I thought I had missed something about you being a mutant turtle.

Blogger Admin said...

Wow, what a great site. I will bookmark this site and return often. It's nice to see sites like this.

Please visit my website and let me know what you think. Secret Confession
