My favorite was a hostess once who came out of her powder room and announced, "How many of you have used the restroom? And the soap's not even wet!

Now we didn't map this "little walk" and by the time we got to Bradenton Rec center I was about to die. We had covered 5 miles!!

I saw my golf cart at Bradenton and knew the guys and grandkids were in the pool. As we approached the parking lot our 35 yr old son got in my golf cart to go home for something they forgot. We waved him over and I asked if he'd give me a ride. He laughed and told me we were so close to finishing our walk I should just walk on home. (parent/ child reversal!)

As he pulled out of Bradenton I vigorously, aggressively, gave him a frantic, waving 1 finger salute!! To my horror the golf cart passing by was not him....but some nice little couple with a look of horror on their faces.

I thought I would die!! The girls and our son, who was following that cart out of the lot, had the laugh of their lives. I will never live that down!

But if it was you, please know that I do not shoot the bird at random strangers.

There, it is off my chest. I feel so much better!!

If people say it's yummy, I say I made it myself.
I guess you'd only come clean Barefoot if your guests started heaving.

If I burp in public -- a rather loud one, that is,
I will look in feigned horror at my husband and say, rather loudly -- "Richard!"
