In which Daniel and i discuss crystal meth


WARNING:  If you don’t have a sense of humor, DO NOT READ THIS POST!

Yesterday, Daniel and I were outside enjoying the beautiful fall weather when we had the following discussion:


Me:                  Daniel, bad news.  I’m not going to be able to go to New York with you next weekend.

Daniel:            Why mom?

Me:                  Unfortunately, I’ve gained a ton of weight and I just don’t feel like wearing real clothes.

Daniel:            you look fine mom

Me:                  easy for you to say…you don’t feel yucky and look awful

Daniel:            (always the pragmatist) it doesn’t matter mom.  You’re already


(yeah, like the only reason I like to FEEL good was to catch a man…as if)

Me:                  perhaps I should go on a crystal meth diet

Daniel:            what?

Me:                  … yeah, but there are pros and cons to crystal meth

Daniel:            mom, what are you talking about?

Me:                  well, I would definitely lose weight using crystal meth

Daniel:            …ummmm

Me:                  but then there’s the whole complexion going south issue

Daniel:            mom, that’s terrible

Me:                  I know, have you ever seen all those before and after pictures with crystal meth? The complexions are AWFUL!!!

Daniel:            mom, you’re not using crystal meth

Me:                  plus, it’s so highly addictive…

Daniel             mom…

Me:                  … so to find the balance between weight loss, addiction and a bad complexion could be difficult I suppose …

Daniel             you might be the sickest person on earth

Me:                  (musing) perhaps I should write a post on the pros and cons of crystal meth for weight loss

Daniel:            you should DEFINTELY NOT write a post on that

Me:                  I could present a balanced view point

Daniel:            there IS no balanced viewpoint.  It’s a terrible drug!

Me:                  I probably wouldn’t know where to find it any ways

Daniel:            you’re ridiculous

Me:                  perhaps I should start a meth lab in the basement

Daniel:            MOM

Me:                  it’s not like we use it much anyways

Daniel:            just stop

Me:                  of course, I believe manufacturing crystal meth is kind of explosive

Daniel:            not to mention illegal

Me:                  well, I guess I won’t do it then

Daniel:            I think that’s best.

Me:                  Ok, I’ll have to figure out another way to lose weight.

Daniel:            … and what about New York?

Me:                  New York? OK, I’ll go now that my complexion won’t be ruined.

Daniel:            I bet other kids don’t have to put up with this crap.

Me:                  You’re just lucky I guess.

So, there you are.  The pros and cons of Crystal Meth as a weight loss supplement.  Aren’t you glad you read my blog?


Once again, this is just a joke and obviously it contradicts the stuff I said last week about drugs.  Just get over it.  Daniel knows I’m kidding!

    I like your strategy. Throw out some totally ridiculous stuff and see how your child reacts to it. Especially since we have learned from a previous post that several of your children’s friends have “experimented” with illegal drugs.

    Shock therapy is good! And I am always for a pro/con list (that’s how I solve a lot of my daily conundrums).

      well, i do so love my silly conversations …

    I get you. This is hilarious. This sounds like a conversation that I have had with my husband about becoming a crack whore. Don’t forget about the whole rotting teeth too.

    I can’t wait until my kids get older so I can torture them like this.

      my daughter asked me to become a crack whore so she would have something interesting to write about for her college essays. I declined…

      i know right? feel free to use your basement this way…if you have one

    I agree with Jayme ~ the damage to the teeth is horrible. However, you could set up your lab and become the local dealer, saving all the profits for future dental implants and plastic surgery to correct your complexion issues. Wow, this is a tough one! So many choices!!!

    • Lynn

      true…but i LIKE my teeth so i don’t think i’ll go with the crystal meth diet

    Hi Lynne,
    I have recently discovered your blog, and have enjoyed getting my Lynne humor fix! I really miss those days of sitting in the bleachers laughing at your conversations and comments. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t really miss sitting on those bleachers for what seemed like days and days at a time, but the conversations kept it bearable!

    Meghan told me that she and Keely have shared a couple of comments (I think about their “gangsta” phase) on Facebook and she had me vote for Keely’s essay. I wish you all of the best for whatever is ahead for Keely.

    Looking forward to reading more of your stories…

      hey there! first, i kind of miss those days too. I find that without the sports interaction i can spend days without any conversation at all. I agree.
      Yeah, Keely said all the swimmers were VERY SUPPORTIVE with their votes and i really appreciate your voting as well. Keely does a good job keeping in touch with so many of the girls. Those were good times and i miss them too!

      as to the blog, thank you. I never know who’s reading what i spew out. You know me!

    I too have contemplated the pros and cons of the meth diet with my kids while promoting the upside of the business venture. I guess I took it a bit to far since my daughter asked my son if she should tell their Dare coordinator at school. I contemplate it EVERYTIME I open my closet. Now that jeans weather is here I guess I’ll spend my day searching the web for home-meth-lab-kits rather than working on my blog. Thanks for the unneeded distraction!

      hahaha…see? i knew this topic was relatable! and my kids thought people would be pissed…as if

        Another blog I started following, perhaps because it is on your friend list is “Mommy Wants Vodka”. Being that we are new to the small rural town, everyone still looks at me like I have 2 heads. I think what is more entertaining for me and annoying for them is my “I don’t give a fuck” attitude so when I told my son that since the “Football Moms” don’t want to include me when handing out t-shirt order sheets with your sons name and number on them, that I was fine with that, I had found my own.

        So when I told him that I am ordering a “SHUT YOUR WHORE MOUTH” shirt from Mommy Wants Vodka to wear for the rest of the season, he took me very seriously and brought me home 3 new t-shirts on his trip to DC. He informed me that it is just the right number for the rest of his season.

        I still think I am ordering, at least for the grocery store…

          yeah…small towns can be hard. Most of the people i know now are used to me but it took a GOOD LONG WHILE for that to happen. that’s a pretty funny story that he brought you shirts to avoid the “shut your whore mouth” t-shirt.

          Yeah, i love Becky…on her blog and in real life.

          Thanks for commenting

    hahaheehee – I’m glad to read that I am not the only parent who has conversations like this with her children. My youngest usually just leaves the room after rolling his eyes and shaking his head. I’m pretty sure he goes to his room to start calling nursing homes – just in case.

      October 21, 2011

      nope…i think people have them but just won’t admit to them…type up one of your funny convos and submit it to “go ahead, amuse me”.

      I’m always looking for new people

    Wise choice – meth mouth is disgusting. If you’re going to go down the road of illegal drug diets, stick with the cocaine diet – you’ll feel great, lose weight, and be amazingly productive!

    It’s NOT just Me ? I thought I was alone in my desire/fear of using Meth to be skinny .. But just like You Lynn, Hubby pointed out that I’d look old, have less teeth and/or die .. Always the voice of reason that one ! Uggg ..

    • Lynn
      October 25, 2011

      no…we all want short cuts don’t we

    I touted the benefits of a Meth diet a few years ago– what’s the point of paying the premiums for my health insurance if I don’t use it for something. Might as well max out those substance abuse benefits. Someone finally asked me if I watched Nip/Tuck–apparently this was a storyline on their show. A porn star needed to drop the baby weight and get back to work.

    • Lynn
      October 25, 2011

      yeah? how did that go over?

      • JLynn

        I think she might have killed herself, but I bet she looked great in her casket. I’d say it was a pretty even trade.

    See, you taunt with the idea of getting skinny and then you throw in a dead toothless wonder.
    Buzz kill – totally!

    Way to shake things up!
