13 Things About Dane Bramage
13 "What I Should Have Said/What I Said"

You know sometimes your mouth works faster than your brain. And in those instances you utter something that in retrospect could have been said in a more kinder, gentler fashion. Here are thirteen of those times. What I should have said is first followed by what I said.

  1. Of course not! Why you look ravishing!
    No. Your big butt makes you look fat.

  2. Times are really tough for all of us. And I am sure once he bounces back he will be in touch.
    You knew he was a deadbeat before he was your baby's daddy.

  3. I'm sure he was drawn to your vast intellect and beauty.
    I'm sure he was drawn to your vast wealth.

  4. The screen says the flight is delayed. I'm sure it will be here soon.
    The plane ain't landing but your Mom's broom just touched down at gate 47.

  5. Well he's had some setbacks with his health and other issues.
    The lazy bum is deathly allergic to work.

  6. No I have never had this kind of food before and let me just say the texture and smell makes for a unique dining experience.
    Oh man this tastes like crap.

  7. I would describe her appearance as classical. I bet men surround her staring, transfixed by her look.
    The trick is not to stare directly at her face, instead use shiny surfaces.

  8. Genetics is a powerful thing and he could very well inherit your brains.
    Since you're a dumbass chances are he'll be a dumbass too.

  9. Let's hold off on the drinks until we get to the air conditioned room.
    You know how your mom sweats.

  10. You're Sisters? I see the striking family resemblance now!
    Which one of you did Dorothy drop the house on?

  11. Dude your cologne is a little overpowering.
    Dude you reek. What'd you do, bathe in a latrine?

  12. Your track record isn't very good. And I see that these setbacks haven't diminished your perseverance.
    Don't you ever get tired of being wrong?

  13. It's obvious you have championship attitude if they gave awards for it.
    You'd definitely get a gold medal at the Jerk Olympics.

#4 had me laughing out loud at my cpu! I am well known for speaking before I think and found this idea for a TT hilarious. May have to steal it someday! ;-)

Irishcoda said...

And you're still here to tell us about it? ;) Great thirteen,have a wonderful weekend!

Darla said...

#7 made me snort tea out my nose. Thanks so much. :)

Michelle said...

LOLOLOL! So many of these are what we're actually thinking!!
Great idea for a TT, and thanks for the raucous laughter in the middle of my day.
Thanks for stopping by, too.

I love this 13! Great idea. But really, I don't know what's wrong with the real things you said ;)

Open Grove Claudia said...

These are hilarious! I love the "your mother's broom landed" and the"you knew he was a deadbeat" - that one is soooo true! Do you think them at the same time as you respond? or later? I never come up with things in the moment.

Happy TT!

Karina said...

These were great! And see, I would be the one saying your "should have saids" and then thinking to myself what I really should have said was the thing about the jerk olympics! ;-)

Thanks for stopping by my TT.

LMFAO #4 is the best!

Eve said...

Great TT. You made me laugh. I'm sure you stole a couple of my faux pas to include here. My brother-in-law used to tell me I was the reason they make peppermint socks. I'm not playing today, but I did put up a post.

Jane said...

I love this!!!! How many times have we ALL been in a position where we say one thing but REALLY want to say something else!!!
By the way, here is a link to the article about the "Pigs on Mars",
but it is in Spanish. Maybe someone can translate it for you!

MrsMiller said...

I loved your post! Made me snort...I mean, chuckle, yea that's it!

Thanks for stopping by my TT (

Lisa said...

I should learn that I shouldn't read your post while drinking anything! Snorting iced coffee through the nose is sooo not fun!

Happy TT! My list is up!
