and the Perfect Post Award goes to ...

Sweatpantsmom for her hilarious solution to dealing with rude comments.

"So what I've decided I need is some sort of official system for coming up with the perfect comeback at the right time. Perhaps some conditioning exercises to prepare me for the unsolicited attack - I could have Rigel hurl insults at me while I practice replying with pre-scripted responses while timed. Maybe it's a 'one size fits all' retort, such as, "Bite me, skank whore." I could try a cheat-sheet approach, where I have several juicy lines written on index cards that I keep in my purse. That way, once insulted, I'd be ready with, "Oh yeah? You're gonna regret this in around thirty seconds or so. Just you wait till I get my notes out, buddy."

Go check out all the Perfect Post winners here and here.

And keep scrolling down to see my guest poster ... really, keep going ... I'll wait ... come on, you know you want to!

J's Mommy!!! (this is anonymous from CMHL) I will TOTALLY come to your house to meet your husband!!! HA HA AHAHA You totally made me feel better, especially after what your husband said to you the other night (about not being a priority). I am sure he said it in the middle of an argument, but still, he said it. I am expressly NOT allowed to write about my husband online because he says he "has no way to defend himself," and people only see "my side of the story." It matters not that he doesn't choose to post his own side of the story somewhere, I am just not allowed. And you know what? He got so angry about it the few times I did that I'm not willing to battle over that one. But I really wish I could (I've tried the anonymous blog before, but that didn't work out...how sad is it to say that the only thing that keeps me writing is knowing I have readers!!). Anyway, your blog is great. BOOKMARKED!! :) Thank you for helping me feel less alone!

By the way, my response to people's comments is generally (in a very sweet voice), "Oh, my! What a LOOOVELY thing to say!!" and that usually shuts people up!
