Oh No He Didn't


Faux (pronounced /ˈfoʊ/, like "foe") is a French word for false or fake. It is often used in English phrases such as faux pearls, faux fur, and faux pas.


Except when you go to the hardware store with your Significant Other and he picks up a flyer that advertises a FAUX painting class and says........

"hey! a F***K painting class! Sounds like something you might want to try, honey!"

picture me with a faux smile plastered to my face.

If I weren't so cranky hormonally challenged it would have been amusing.

thank goodness the store was full of men who didn't know how to pronounce it either.

Can you imagine if you took the class and did your living room? The dear could tell everyone who visited how you fauxed the paint job.

Sometimes I think mens' heads are just faux brain holders.

Sounds like a fun class. Being that you were probably the only lady in a hardware store, all the men would've been lined up to register for the class!!

Rudee said...

Only proves that once again, you can dress 'em up, but you can't necessarily take them out. Very funny.

Haha, aren't our hubby's hilarious! For our 10th anniversary we ate at a restaurant and shared a pu pu platter. He was in hysterics over the name of the food and said it over and over.

I started to crack up too and then he got serious and surprised me with a gorgeous diamond necklace from www.idonowidont.com as an anniversary present. They are silly guys but we love them!

I think I need to plaster that little photo on my forehead. I am always fauxing up.
