"Put your Big Girl Panties on and walk it off" I am sure glad I didn’t come up with this statement but sad to say my little Brother did.
A few days ago we were talking and he asked how Cindy was doing, I told him that she was still hurting and it looked like the first of February would be the soonest the Doctor would release her to go back to work.
Tell her I said to "Put your Big Girl Panties on and walk it off", I had to laugh because he and she have always gotten along really well, they always have a comment similar to this for one another and they always laugh about it.
I can just imagine if Cindy were to say to me that she was hurting and needed a hand with something, and I replied with "Put your Big Girl Panties on and walk it off" just how quickly you all would be reading my obituary.
Why is it that Cindy’s Dad or my little Brother can say things like this and get a laugh, no one gets their feelings hurt, and all is still well in the world.
Jimmy messes up and says something like this and no one laughs, the world seems to come to an end, everyone’s feelings are hurt, and Lassie won’t even bark to let anyone know Jimmy’s in the well.
The smartest thing I know to do is to help her out when I can, say yes dear, and smile to myself when little brother makes comments like this.
Cindy was sitting at her computer tonight laughing at a text she got today, a message from my Brother that said, "Put your Big Girl Panties on and walk it off" I just shook my head and said, "I can’t believe that guy"
It’s OK Brother, I did laugh but you know how it is, you get away with this kind of stuff because you are all the way across the country, but I have to live with her.
Do you have a friend or relative that can get away with comments like this?
