Beware The Taint Of March

Beware The Taint Of March

Mr. Right-Click: Today is like, one of those days you just want to soak in, for when the summer comes.
Me: Oh yeah?
Mr. Right-Click: yeah, I love this weather!
Me: Yeah, it’s nice.
Mr. Right-Click: It was a tough day. But you know. I’m fighting.
Me: Were you perchance called a “taint-face” today? Because I was.
Mr. Right-Click: A what?
Me: Excuse me. A “linkbait taint-face.”
Mr. Right-Click: What is —
Me: LBTF, for short.
Mr. Right-Click: What is a “taint”?
Me: — because I seem to like “random consonants strung together.”
Mr. Right-Click: What is a “taint”?
Me: The “taint” is the part of the body located in between the anus and the genitalia —
Mr. Right-Click: [Laughing]
Me: — so called, as you might have guessed, because “itain’t the ass, and itain’t the genitals” —
Mr. Right-Click: [Laughing]
Me: Yeah.
Mr. Right-Click: But that’s, you cannot even get upset about that one —
Me: Well . . .
Mr. Right-Click: Did you have to look it up?
Me: Strangely enough, no.
Mr. Right-Click: So there’s that . . .
Me: I’m a driver, I’m a winner, things are going to change, I can feel it . . .

    Savor the little victories, Anna.

    You know, they are probably just jealous because they WISH their taint was as lovely as your face. And, because they wish they had something interesting to say.

    Fuck’em, Anna.

    I’m not sure I understand how this is a bad thing. I mean didn’t Georgia O’Keeffe paint a lot of pictures of taints?

    That’s so funny, because at dinner last night, I explained the whole situation to my husband, including the meaning of the term “taint-face.” He seemed impressed.

    Now that’s one to teach the seven year old boys playing basketball to taunt the other team with. Cool.

    Notorious TAINT, that’s what you be!

    I was revelling in the weather, myself. I love it when it’s cool and windy here.

    What trouble have you gotten yourself into today, young lady? Surely the brouhaha from last week has blown over?

    Is knowing the word “taint” a victory?

  9. Mar 10, 2010

    Good point. Thanks.

    Well, that’s true. Maybe she’s just jealous of the character an episiotomy adds to a taint-face? Now I’m grossing myself out.

    It doesn’t happen to just anyone. It takes a special person to get called a taint-face.

  12. Mar 10, 2010

    Hah! Imagine the raised eyebrows.

  13. Mar 10, 2010

    Tain’t it the truth?

    Oh yeah, sorry, I read your blogs from left to right on the masthead. Umm, anyway, when I first started to get interested in making a career switch to an MBA, I was *really* interested in marketing and new media.

    You know, over the last two years I’ve been watching the blogging scene, attended a Blogher conference and kept myself abreast of all these controversies.

    I am going into investment banking. That is all.

  15. I’m thinking Monkey has a point, investment banking sounds less troublesome.

    So this is now a total of two men who didn’t know the meaning of taint? I’m BAFFLED!

  17. Mar 12, 2010

    I know, really, of all the things that happened this week, this may be the most astonishing of them all.

  18. Mar 12, 2010

    Well, with investment banking, the whole world hates you, until they forget who you are, and then there’s a crash and they all start hating you again. I just have the mommies hating me. So, I don’t know. It’s kind of a wash.

    Sister, you got more than just the mommies hating you. You got the daddies, too.
