I'm Sorry Francis.....

Being a female makes this especially difficult, being an Irish female makes it a crime against Nature. But I have to do this, I have to say "I was wrong".  It was all a misunderstanding you see, and really it was his fault. When Fran wrote the post dedicating the Ogress to me he said "and you can name her Anne"  The thing had blonde hair and I thought he meant to call it "Anne" by name. I spent the better part of the night looking at myself in the mirror and thinking "Christ, I'm getting old, but do I really look that bad?"

Now if he'd only written "Anne, you can name her" I wouldn't be in this mess.

And to help me get out of it here's Pamela Sue Anderson.


And to make me feel even worse, I find out that Francis hasn't been sleeping well because he's now the proud Daddy of a flock of baby chicks and those babies are keeping him up nights. 

I'm a bad person and I'm going to Hell. It's Lent and I can't eat a doughnut until Easter. I just had to tell a man I was wrong. Please somebody, just shoot me.

  1. Is there a worse fate? I know my wife doesn't think so.

    1. Next time she messes up, have her read this blog and say "See honey, women can be wrong sometimes"

    2. Oh, she'll agree that -women- can be wrong, just not that she can be wrong. Except in a very hypothetical sense. But, you know, there's no actual data to prove it.

    3. The Hubby writes it down when I'm wrong. On this day ----- my wife was wrong. After 20 plus years, he's filled a notebook with dates.

    1. You did something nice and I took it as an insult and I feel terrible. Now aren't you glad you left home. Remember what it was like to be surrounded by a whole island of women like me?

  4. NO we Irish women are never wrong. We can be Somewhat Mistaken. That is different than wrong.

    I've seen photos of you, darling. You could never look bad. You have those fabulous Jessica Lange-esque features. You will be gorgeous until the end of time.

    1. You sound like my mother hahahaha. I don't think she ever uttered the words "I was wrong" in her life. I'm older and getting soft in the head.

  5. Wow, you put Pam up there with her boobs. Wait, that doesn't sound so right. Why wouldn't she be with her boobs? I dunno. It's late here and I am a bit foggy.

    Must sleep.

    So ... did you name her? I thought her name was already Anne, as well. So confusing. But no, you don't look like that, at all. You're even prettier than Pam.

    Cheers and boogie boogie.

    1. See, I'm not the only one who thought he'd named her Anne. I think I'll name her Theresa after one of my little sisters. She makes me look calm and mild mannered.

    2. Nope, I did think it was really cool though.

  6. On the rare occasions when I admit to being wrong, My Rare One pretends like she's deaf and makes me repeat it about six times, each time louder than the last.

    1. She's a woman after me own heart. The question is "do you do it?"

  7. Is it just me, or did anyone else never find Pamela Anderson that attractive to begin with?

    3. I thought she was beautiful in Baywatch before all the surgeries. She had great cheekbones and she would have aged better if she'd left well enough alone.

  8. This really isn't going to be a good Lent for you, or at least it's not started well. I think we all made that mistake really, and while it's true you might have been wrong in your assumption, he was wrong in his grammar and he misrepresented what we misinterpreted. So, I hope that assuages your guilt. We're all at fault here, especially Francis.

    1. I'm Catholic, I was born guilty and I will die guilty. And I want a doughnut!

  9. Don't feel bad at all Anne haha, if Mr Francis hadn't poorly grammatically worded his comment then there would have been no need for this sorry mess! No but seriously you made up for it and I doubt that the great man minds at all so there's no harm in any of this in my opinion!

    1. Well people were still hassling him as of last night, so I thought I'd better set the record straight. I've been forgiven!

  10. Anne, you read it the same as most of us, so although we were wrong it was Fran's fault for how he presented that sentence.

    "Guilt all round, barkeep!"

    1. When I was younger, I would never admit I was wrong. It comes with age and now I don't have a problem with it. I hate to feel guilty and it's better just to be honest and get back to doing what I want to do.

  12. You were WRONG!!!!! Oh the cat will have to mark this day down in his litterbox, he'll think of you everytime he goes in and has a big dump, rhymes with grump right? haha

    1. I know it's a grand day for you isn't it. The Hubby is loving it as well and he'll be rubbing my nose in it for weeks. He read Frans post on the night it was written and laughed. He said one of those heads looked like his!

  13. Oh no, the curse of the missing comma is admitting you were wrong! Damn the fates.

  16. We all make mistakes, draw wrong conclusions, and just mess up sometimes. It's a human trait, not a gender-determined one.

  18. I don't know, I think the lack of the comma "and you can name her, Anne" made a big difference. You should go forth with nature and stick to how you were never wrong.

  19. oh Catholic guilt and sleepless nights. Sounds like some of my relatives.

  20. Once you get my age and the mind goes, you're wrong all the time.

  21. I never realised Irish women got things wrong and I have never heard them say sorry, is it the end of the world, lol?

  22. Storm in a teacup - no harm, no foul... or should that be fowl, just for Fran of course! ;-)

  23. damn I wish I was in miss Corcorane's class this year... I wonder if she is re-trying to give up swearing for Lent? doughnuts? actually I guess its where you are here that would be easy as their not that great, perhaps thats why New Zealanders always go and invent crazy things, their wondering whats missing and instead of realising its a good doughnut they go invent bungie jumping... I have no clue how that even works out but after living here over 8 years all I know is that it does... remember they invented the electric fence also so if that was because of the lack of good doughnuts what they'll come up with next will be even more random.

    got to love it here oh and perhaps we should combine the electric fence with the longest water slide... I have been zapped by an electric fence a couple of times and a good one in the a*** not only is very painful but I know looks very funny.

    your not wrong you just took a while to get to the right answer ;-)... see you can never be wrong it just took you the amount of time until other person telling you the correct answer to get it... why they never believe me in maths when I say that I don't know.

  24. Oh no you are not doing the lent thing??? This is going to be terrible without sugar and meat and..any stimulus! No wonder you made a mistake!

  25. And this is why grammar is important sometimes. Like D4 said, the difference between "You can name her Anne" and "You can name her, Anne," is all in the comma. Without it, they mean completely different things. ;)

  26. No doughnuts until Easter? I think that's punishment enough. He's the one who forgot the comma.

  27. I read it the same as you, Anne. Ain't nothing but a thang. (That's what they say where I used to live in the deep south).

    No doughnuts? Yikes! If memory serves, you did that last year too, right? Well, typing that just made me hungry so I'm going to have a piece of sour cream cake. Yeah, that's right, sour cream cake at 10:00 a.m. Don't judge me. =P

  28. What better way to apologize than a sexy pic of Pam! Fran should forgive you now!

    ReplyDelete
  29. "Anne" and "looking bad" would never go in the same sentence. xo

  30. Modesty FTW. As long as people admit they're wrong, we won't get anymore World War III's.
