Spanx A Lot!

11 Apr

In England, woolen coffins are being offered as a GREEN alternative to wooden and aluminum caskets.

Do we really have to worry about our carbon footprints if we’re sporting toe tags?

Supposedly, 1 out of 3 of us in the U.S. is obese.

My question:  Does SPANX make a casket?

I can't breathe!

spanx

Power Panties!

 

 

 

I want to look slim and svelte – downright sylphlike –  in my grave, don’t you?

    HI. Enjoyed looking at your blog. I too am a humor writer. I have a book out for women (baby boomer humor) which is just about to become an ebook which is a new thing for me. I also have 2 kids books.
    Love Dave Barry. The highlight of my life was meeting him and getting my picture with him. I am on the A-Z Challenge. Will be back.

    The question does spanx make a casket is just awesome! Of course that makes us think twice about the bag of cheetos we’re eyeing at the moment…

      Ah, yes – Spanx can hide many a bag of Cheetos. Hmm, I bet you “think twice” anyway because you are 2girlsonabench.com

    Okay, so I ordered Spanx online and the package came today but the delivery person left me a slip to go pick it up since I wasn’t home when they attempted delivery. Trouble is, the depot is all the way out in a suburb and I’m not about to waste 3 hours of my life going there and back to get this package. So, I called Purolator to see if they would reship it tomorrow and leave it on the doorstep if I leave a note with my signature.

    The conversation with the guy on the phone goes like this:

    Gentleman: Your name, please?
    Me: Lindsay—
    G: Your address
    M: 721 Dupont, blah blah blah
    G: And who are you expecting this package from?
    M: They’re called Spanx…
    30 second drawn out, long-ass PAUSE
    M:….but it’s not what you think it is.
    G: laughing so hard he can barely speak…thanks for clarifying ma’am, I was wondering
    At this point, we were both laughing so hard we are in hysterics and he had to put me on “hold” to compose himself

    Spanx for the laughs!
