    Eespondent – Ok…this one…depends. If tis asking me if I want a bigger penis … sad if they think I am a boy-man-insecure bastard lol. Now, if they are sending me a potential mate based on his anatomy … hmmm…hahaha…I am TOTALLY kidding lol

    Fridgebit – I want those!!!!

    Lollycoddle – back seat of the car?!?! Can this term be used for when I toss a twinkie or two in the closet for the child?!?!?

    Verboaster – Feck…this is me isn’t it?!?! Or should I have said, “Oh pollypoops. I suspect the personage that this is addressing is indeed the person here speaking of herself in the third person.”

    LOL…sorry…did not mean to hijack your blog with a long comment!

    • You didn’t hijack. It pleases me greatly that you get so involved and write such in-dpeth responses to my dribble…Loved the closet answer (secretly hope you don’t stick child in the closet of course) You got me confused with the Verboaster lol
