Like...Gag Me With A 4x4

I grew up in Southern California in the midst of Valley Girl talk. As you may know, "Valley Girls" had their own way of sounding uber cool.

Words like "Totally", "Like...", "Gag Me", "Awesome" and "So..." were combined with other words to create the unique Valley Girl vernacular that I honestly love (and still sometimes use)...phrases like:

"I'm, like... so tired"


"You are like so totally awesome"

and my personal favorite

"Like...gag me with a 4x4!"


Right now...I feel like I have been gagged with a 4x4.

I woke up feeling really exhausted...like "hit by a truck" tired...but I had to go to work, so I got myself ready and went in to teach a couple of classes.

Midway though my first class I knew I was in trouble. My stomach was achey and I had the icky feeling that I might vomit...Ewwwwwww!

Anyhow, kept my composure and I made it through the first class...I knew I had to at least talk to the second class, to get them up to date with all the things they need to do in the next week and I was able to make it most of the way through our class session thanks to an activity that made them do most of the work.

I got home feeling REALLY bad and when Momo came home, she too stated that she had a headache and a stomach ache. She is laying next to me right now... asleep since about 3:00 in the afternoon.

The worst thing about it all is that HWMNBN and Mango feel just fine and they decided they had to make chili dogs for dinner...

And the smell is like so totally killing me!!


  1. What is it about men?? They always seem to pick the most gawd-awful smelling thing to cook & eat when the women-folk are sicky-poo! Gotta love 'em, 'cause they are so totally like ....

    never mind.

    I hope you and the girl-child are healed quickly!

  2. Reading this is like talking to my husband. He's from LA and he like totally talks like a Valley Girl. Like totally.

  3. yeeesh... u hope you guys start feeling better soon! p.s. i know nothing of valley girl talk... all i know is some thick southern drawls all around me!

  4. Oh not chili dogs when you're feeling under the weather. That's not right.

    Feel better, like totally better!

  5. Take it easy. I know that's not always possible when you're a mom!

    Mmmmm, sorry about the chili dogs....

    Get better soon!

  6. I hope you both get better, for sure.
