The Wisdom of Wife

Went to the Texas Roadhouse (or, as Little One called it, "Road Texashouse") for dinner tonight. As we were leaving, The Wife had some trouble seeing well enough to back out of our parking space because we were parked next to this honkin' thing.

Its license plate: SXYMAMA

The Wife: "Those who proclaim themselves to be sexy mamas, generally aren't."

The Wife is wise beyond her years.

Ah so true!

A similar gem of wisdom this wife learned last week regarding people who are "so busy": they generally are not. People who genuinely are busy don't have time to tell you how busy they are.

Case in point: When a car salesman never returns your call and then proclaims "it's been SO busy!" when you call him out on his inability to dial your number (and he doesn't even remember the first conversation you had with him), you can pretty much conclude the guy is full of it. Last I checked, American car companies are not overwhelmed with shoppers.

I hate car shopping.

Hilarious! Especially a mama with a truck like that!
I do love reading what people have for their plates though.

Wow. Someone sure has a healthy dose of confidence. Blind confidence, maybe, but still. At least you saw a Texas-sized truck on your way to the Roadhouse to get you in the mood. (It didn't happen to have a little "We're Seceding" sign on it, did it??)

I'm willing to bet SXYMAMA doesn't have a clue what "seceding" means.
