Note: the above title is in reference to the movie, Jerry McGuire, which came out in the 90s. One of two famous lines in the movie is “you had me at hello. ” It was a very romantic and sweet (blech) moment in the movie.
I love today’s daily prompt, I really f*cking do! I sometimes, more than I probably should, have a filthy mouth. I curse and I drop the f-bomb, a lot. Most of my friends do too and we laugh about it. Usually the guys I meet or I’m with are not affected by it either.
Now I didn’t grow up in a household where my parents cursed continually, so I’m not even sure where I get it from, maybe just dealing with life in general. Even now, when my Dad drops the occasional f*ck it takes me by surprise. He is extremely sarcastic and very funny (apple doesn’t fall far), but only saves cursing for any guy I am with (must be a male thing) or political talk. I also find it funny when a stranger drops it speaking to me and then apologizes for doing so. I usually respond with “no f*cking worries” which usually elicits a laugh and a renewed comfortableness.
In my Facebook, Twitter, Instagram descriptions I say that I am, at most times unfiltered, sarcastic and a curser (not even sure that is the proper word but who the f*ck cares) extraordinaire. It doesn’t mean that I am unable to “act” proper when I need to. I keep it under control.
I do, however, love a guy who is sarcastic, unfiltered, but is loving too. If he’s too sweet I smell bullshit. If he’s sarcastic, I’m hooked. I’d rather have real than hokey, lovey, dovey talk any day. I enjoy romance but I’d rather laugh and spit out my coffee by something that is said to me. As long as it’s not malicious I say bring it, just be prepared to take it (insert smile). And does my sarcasm get me in trouble? Who the f*ck cares?
So remember, if you have a filthy, sarcastic mouth you had me at f*cking hello, not just hello. And, always remember, according to my new favorite quote:
If the tables won’t turn, then flip them the f*ck over!
