Heavens to Betsy, crew. The old girl is dying over here!! Lil Red is absolutely exhausted. If you recall from yesterday, I had a rude 8 AM text message awakening, so I was super wiped out from that. One would think that I would have had the sleep of the heavens last night, but unfortunately that was not the case. I had the worst caffeine headache of all time yesterday night from drinking hella coffee all day. On top of my head feeling like it was getting hit repeatedly by a brick, my stomach was in knots as well. I was super nauseous while I was trying to sleep, so I spent a nice fifteen minutes or so in the bathroom just hanging out and dry heaving. It was a lot of fun, you should all try it sometime. Anyways, I got back into bed completely wide awake and proceeded to toss and turn for a solid three hours until I finally fell asleep around two. Before I zonked out I experienced every annoying thing that could happen when you’re trying to fall asleep: Being too hot, being too cold, having to pee, wanting something to drink, having to pee again from the drink, the list goes on and on. I had to get up at nine today to get ready to take my brother to work and I was not refreshed AT ALL! In fact, I felt like a bigger hot wreck today than I did yesterday….and I was a hot ass wreck yesterday. I swear guys, if I don’t sleep well tonight, I give up on Friday because I know I’ll be such a miserable bitch! Lord have mercy on a Lil Red! And do you wanna know the major kicker in all of this trauma? MY BELLYBUTTON IS STILL INFECTED!!!! My pasty pale stomach is never gonna feel sunlight on it again because I can’t wear crop tops with my bellybutton looking like a war zone! It literally looks like someone launched a grenade into my bellybutton hole, leaving only redness, dry skin, and destruction. #FML So it’s safe to say Lil Red has had a tough few days, but I’m gonna keep on truckin as usual through the shit show that I fondly refer to as my life. 😉
You might be asking yourself why the title of this post is called “Heavens To Betsy” and I’ll tell ya why: There are some fantastic, underrated phrases that aren’t being used nearly enough in the English language and I wanna make them a thing ASAP! To elaborate further, here’s a list of my personal favorite phrases that I’m hoping will hit mainstream lingo in the near future:
- “Level with me”: This phrase is my number one favorite. The day I hear “Level with me, Sarah…do you want high heels or wedges for your birthday?” will be the happiest day of my life. And to answer that question….wedges please!
- “Big deal”: This is a good one!! I love how blaize it sounds. “Sarah, I had an allergic reaction to a bee sting today.” “BIG DEAL!” 🙂
- “Heavens to Betsy”: It speaks for itself. “Sarah, I had an allergic reaction to another bee sting today.” “Heavens to Betsy that’s twice in one day!”
- Referring to yourself as “the old girl”: Ladies, I beg of you to start using this one. So 40’s fabulous I can’t even! Say “you sure know how to make the old girl swoon” to your beau and watch him or her crumble under your charm!! You’re welcome!
Oh yes, there are certainly some winners listed above, and I urge all of you to work them into your daily vernacular. And if the haters question them and the man gets you down, you just send them Lil Red’s way! 😉 While you mull over these phrases, here’s some tunes for you to enjoy!
So what are some quirky, fun, and fabulous phrases that you like to pepper your vocabulary with? I’d love to hear from all of you, so leave me a comment and let’s chat! Have a great night! -Sarah
