… and I love my co-workers! Most of them, anyway. I’ve gotta hand it to them though — they’re a constant source of entertainment. Between Carlos’ witty banter and Rocky laughing at 99% of anything he says, we’re always in for some laughs.
First off, Carlos has successfully gotten Rocky to start referring to me as “Kirbie Jo Lynn Carrington,” which is a mix of a) my name b) the middle name Carlos made up for me and c) Heather Locklear’s character on Dynasty, Sammy Jo Carrington, which coincidentally is the show I got my actual name from. Carlos calls me that because he says I look like her. It’s all a relative at this point. And in an effort to figure out who the hell Sammy Jo Carrington is, I googled her and found this gem of a video which pretty much validates that I am Sammy Jo Carrington part deux. Well done, Carlita. Well done.
The whole purpose of this post is to inform everyone of my new favorite saying. I have my particular words and phrases that I use: babis, wee wah, WAGs, etc., however the other day Rocky was telling me this story about his four-year-old niece and how he was playing Wii tennis or something with her. She was designing his little Wii avatar or whatever it’s called and he was telling her he didn’t like how it looked, when she looked straight at him and said, “You get what you get and you don’t throw a fit.”
Seriously. How amazing is that?! Forget “Keep Calm and Carry On,” we have done one better, folks. I have not ever heard of this saying, but I can guarantee you that when I have my gaggle of children that I am going to be utilizing that saying like it’s nobody’s business.
