You know what word is funny?
Yes, I know I am immature and I have embraced that about myself, but admit it. You laughed when you read boner didn’t you?
Whatever, here is why I bring it up. During the Monday Night Football game this week (thanks a LOT Jets, you cost me my office pool) they were of course advertising Cialis or some other wiener medication and the guy on the commercial was running through the list of possible side effects: headaches, memory loss, stuffy nose, back pain, upset stomach, blurred vision and I said to Gabe “Oh my God! I think somebody is slipping me Cialis. I have ALL of those side effects!”
Now. I really do have all of those side effects. Probably mostly due to aging and poor diet. But the thing is I really said “Oh my God! I think somebody is slipping me Cialis. I have ALL of those side effects… well, those and this raging boner.”
And then I laughed for a good five minutes – not because of my wit and not because I was uncomfortable when I realized I have all of those ailments and I’m not even sick – no, I was laughing that hard because I said boner.
I am somebody’s wife and mother of two functioning humans. I have three successful businesses. I am a well-respected blogger.
And I think the word boner is absolutely hysterical.
You know what else is funny?
My husband works with a gentleman that is trying to bring back the phrase “pop a boner”. I’ve been trying to work it into my everyday speech, but it is surprisingly hard to use in a sentence. The closest I have come so far is “Hey! Pop a boner.” and instead of people thinking that is funny they just assume I am hitting on them, so I am not using that one again.
Anyway, if you are even still reading this nonsense, can you help me come up with a sentence in which the phrase “pop a boner” could be used outside of a middle school?
Thank you in advance for your assistance.
ps – boner
