Who doesn’t love a squishy, chubchub newborn?? Who doesn’t inquire as to the health and well-being of said newborn and Mother to a co-worker returning to work after such a momentous occasion in their family??
A Sourpuss-Grumpy-Guss that’s who….
That’s ok, I like to believe in a little thing called Karma. And in certain cases, I like to believe Karma is a big ‘ol raging bitch named “Peterbilt”. You can’t run from Karma…
Fellow blogger Dani from deathbycupcakes01.blogspot.com (whom I adore) has advised me on a previous rant I had on a similar situation to “kill ’em with kindness”…Here’s the thing: I’m not that big hearted a person. I’d like to be. But the reality is I’m just not. And I accept this about myself. I’m more of a “make a voodoo doll and stab them repeatedly” kinda girl…
So I googled it.
And got detailed instructions.
On “How to make a voodoo doll”.
So according to Wikihow, I need a couple of sticks, some string (they recommend Hemp cord or waxed thread as better than regular string as they tend to be stronger. Wouldn’t want my doll coming apart now would I??) some Spanish moss, fabric and embellishments to personalize with. And of course, PINS…Gotcha. Soooo on it!
Oh this is gonna be FUN!
“Oh I’m sorry, you have a raging headache??” Poke, poke.
“Gee, you’ve really been having a lot of stomach and butt pains lately (welcome to my world, you’ve been causing pains in my butt for forever). Poor thing” Stab, stab.
See? I’m civil….I inquire about folks health…
“My oh my, you’ve really lost a lot of hair recently, tsk tsk” Tug, tug. Yank, yank.
“Maybe you have Sciatica…”
“Wow, look at your eye twitch!”
DON’T YOU JUST LOVE ARTS AND CRAFTS???
