Please Shoot Me If I Ever…

How many times have we all said that phrase to someone to express our belief that if we ever displayed the specified behavior that we would essentially have lost all self-respect or reached our rock bottom of moral destitution? How many times would we all deserve to be shot if anyone took us up on that? Here is my list of Please Shoot Me If I Ever…

1. take a job as a clown
2. sing along to any George Michael/WHAM! songs
3. write a paper check in line at the supermarket
4. laugh at an episode of Everybody Loves Raymond
5. play Dance, Dance Revolution
6. stop professing my love of Canadians
7. announce my engagement to Lindsay Lohan, Paris Hilton, or Brittany Spears
8. go to a tanning studio

What’s on your “Shoot Me If I Ever…” list?

  1. You love us Canadians? Good God, why?Shoot me if I ever:– start watching daytime soaps– wear a sweater with a Christmas motif (or a puppy on it for that matter)And that’s all I can come up with early on a Monday morning

  2. OK well I’ve been singing Freedom 90 for days and went to a tanning salon prior to my trip to Mexico this past week. Don’t shoot me! 🙂However, pull out the gun if I:– Yeah jazz, me too…the day you see me in a Christmas sweater, start shooting.– Refer to Star Wars as “The Greatest Story Ever Told”– Begin watching MTV for its compelling programming content– Stop drinking coffee. You know that means I believe Armageddon is forthcoming.– State that I think the mullet is a sexy and fabulous hairstyle– Own more cats than shoes

  3. Marybeth…Oh, yeah, the dreaded mullet!!! Shoot me for that one too.

  4. Please shoot me if I ever…Begin to carry on a coherent conversation about American Idol, Survivor or The Biggest Loser (if such a think is even possible)Take out a hankie, spit on it and start to wipe the corner of your mouthWear rainbow colored leg warmers in public while singing the theme to One Day at a Time (in private is a totally different matter)

  5. shoot me if i ever, uh, can’t think of anything…*bang*

  6. Jazz- Of course I love our peaceful neighbors to the North.MaryBeth- It’s fine if you tan, but I think it’s a little unmanly, so I refuse to do it. Besides, I’ve discovered that the big, glowy thing in the sky does the same thing for free.Jazz- Don’t be dissing the mullet. All business in the front and party in the back!

  7. Amy- Good list, but I think I may be guilty of one of them. I’ll leave it to you to guess which one.(I look great in leg warmers)Say Rah!- Hi, nice to see you again.
