This is going in the bathroom. When I saw it in a bin at the Kooky Kitsch Klear Out, I about passed out. It was kismet.
Years ago when I rented a room from/with my closest (to this day) friends, we started a tradition of adverbs. I will explain. My mother gave me some ridiculous new age healing type book that actually contained positive affirmations for every part of the body and every bodily function. It’s the kind of thing I loath and have a hard time even finding funny (which is saying a lot for me). The day was saved though, when my dear friend (who shall remain unnamed) decided to look up the word anus. The affirmation attached to this specific region was, “I easily and comfortably release that which I no longer need in life”. I can barely remember my own birthday, but that phrase is forever burned in my brain. We laughed so hard we cried and immediately sat down at the kitchen table to come up with new adverbs. A tablet of paper and a pen was also left by the toilet in case of in-the-moment inspiration. It started out with words like publicly and proudly and whole heartedly and enthusiastically but soon spiraled into things like unsatisfyingly and depressingly. A favorite of mine was eerily and disturbingly. (EERILY!?!?!!? It still slays me!) So, now you know something about me that you probably would have never liked to know. Yes, we are all still friends. Yes, I miss living with them (In fact the idea is that when I win the lottery, we can all be neighbors because I’m building a compound). And yes, we still find stuff like this funny. This might have to be a present for someone. It’s just too good to keep to myself. Thank you Kooky Kitsch (www.kookykitsch.com) for bringing us closer together.
