Its time to say goodbye to a much loathed word.
I’m gonna get hate mail for this, but I really dont care at this point. I’m sure my reputation on the net can’t get any worse.
I have no problem with “amazing” or “balls” for that matter. I say “meatballs”, “cannonballs”, “shitballs”, “assballs” etc.
But shortening “amazing” by making it sound cutesy and attaching a “balls” on the end is downright obnoxious. If you do say it on a regular basis, I dont hate you. There are support groups for it, get help.
In an effort to get rid of the word, I asked some blogger friends to give me a short list of things they think is “amaze-balls”. But to be honest, things got confusing and getting all the responses turned out to be a giant mess. So I’m just giving “Amaze-balls” its last hurrah by listing things I thing are…..amaze-balls (cringe) So without further ado…
Eden’s Amaze-balls “Last Hurrah” List
1) Sneezing AND farting at the same time so no one notices you farted!
trust me. As a yoga teacher, I deal with lots of tooting (not by me, well, maybe sometimes….). And this is like getting away with something illegal. Pray its doesn’t leave a toxic odor though.
2) Dogs That Have Jobs
Dogs are lazy. There, I said it. And you know it’s true. But I love it when I see them do amazing things. There are seeing eye dogs, the K9s that work for the police (and apparently help find Bin Laden), sheep dogs, rescue dogs. I mean, whens the last time YOU sniffed out a bomb or rescued someone? Exactly.
3) That Separate Compartment in your Stomach for Dessert
We all have one. Fess up.
4) That Moment on Vacation When You Forget What Day of the Week it Is
Speaking of which….I will be on a little vacation this weekend but I have VERY special guest posts lined up while I’m away!
5) Completely uncontrollable laugher
The kind that takes all of the energy out of you, leaving you a limp noodle of a human being and makes your bladder surrender a little.
What do you have to add?
So this is the one an only time I think I will dare make “amazeballs”. And here’s how to get them:
1/2 cup sugar/sugar sub of choice
1 tsp. vanilla
2 tbsp. cocoa (unsweetened)
1 cup shredded coconut
1. Beat first four ingredients together (peanut butter, sugar, vanilla, cocoa).
