It's Why She Asks My Opinion

My phone call from Mr. Farklepants' sister yesterday went just like this:

Sister: I'm filling out this form for this thing and they want me to list 3 things that I think people would use to describe me

Me: Okay

Sister: I don't know what to say so I want you to do it

Me: Number one you have an awesome sense of humor. Not too many people can make me laugh the way you do and so often

Sister: Everyone always says that

Me: Then I guess it's true. Second, you are generous to a fault

Sister: To a fault?

Me: Yeah, I don't really know what that means either but I hear people say it and I think it's good. Just say super generous just in case.

Sister: Okay. So what else?

Me: You've got a great rack.

Sister: I'm totally using this.

I suppose now is as good a time as any to share a story about my sister's rack.

When she was about 19 or 20, which means I was about 23 we were having a little get together at my grandmas house.

My sister was walking out of the living room through the sliding glass door and I was attempting to walk in through the same door. Neither of us were paying much attention so we almost collided.

It was at that very moment that I first realized my sister has massive breasts which had we actually collided would have cushioned the blow and saved me from a nasty bruise. Heck, they would have cushioned a Mars lander during touchdown for that matter.

So naturally I blurted out loud enough that my Grandma, my Dad, my Stepmom and my brother could all hear..

"Holy crap your tits are freakin' HUGE!!!"

No one thought it was all that funny at the time (especially grandma), but no one could really argue the point either.

Impressive list of 3 things. The rack thing will never be on my list. Unless I cought up alot of cha ching and get personal with Dr. 90210.

Karen said "Let's hope it wasn't a job interview." Depends on the type of job.

I truly appreciated Mr. Farklepants' story behind that great rack.

PS-WHY is it called a rack? Blog about that, please, Tootsie, please.

Bonnie said...

Now we all know why she called you. She knew she would get an honest answer. I love it.

Nora Bee said...

I wish you were my sister in law!

stephanie (bad mom) said...

Is she applying to Hooters? Because that will all make perfect sense.

Applying to teach, maybe not so much. I mean, it helps in certain ways but I wouldn't bring it up in an interview...

Tootsie Farklepants said...

1blueshi1~ I'm working on it right now! I'm sorry I'm so behind!

Mr. F~ The women in your family are very blessed.

calicobebop said...

You are the best sister ever. Every woman loves to they have a great rack!

dkuroiwa said...

Hey Tootsie...tell Stephanie to "get out of my head"...."Is she trying for a job at Hooters?" is SO what I was thinking! uh-huh, I was!!
What is it about brothers and telling "my sister has huge boobs" stories"??...I've been hearing about my "rack" from my brothers for many years now...
and "her rack is stacked" always stumped me...but of course, I'm blond too, so that might have been part of the problem!!!

Ann said...

Okay, now - I think everyone really wants to know - WHAT form is she filling out? PTA? Hooters? NASA? Meme? Vice Presidency?

g said...

Hee! How do you write that on a resume?

The Girl Next Door said...

TOO funny - and why is it a rack? A drunk conference attender once said that to my co-worker (a gorgeous, brilliant attorney) at happy hour/conference wrap up party. Talk about speechless...

Tricia said...

Good think I wasn't reading this while drinking something. Your third charachteristic was so unexpected, I made one of those ugly snorting sounds while laughing.

anglophilefootballfanatic.com said...

Wow. You've got a pretty good sense of humor, yourself, toots.

JCK said...

You girls must have a blast when you get together. Do you ever stop laughing? I hope not!

What's the difference between a "rack" and a "grill"?

Marmarbug said...

LOL! That is a totally awesome quality to have.

Donna-Michele said...

You are awesome Tootsie. We all need a sister/friend like you. AND big isnt the 'only' nice.

Mr.- I am from a well endowed family, and you would have gotten booo'd at our house... We all have lots of boobage, but blood-relative men arent ever supposed to notice, let alone comment! Kind of like how you'd feel if you were swimming and hopped out of the pool and your sister commented on your endowment, or lack there-of loudly, and in front of Gramma... just not the done thing. Now if you were out with just the cousines, and half loaded, you could get away with it, and we'd have all laughed.
