Shhhhhhhhh - keep this from the terrorists.


I discovered the top secret formula for spontaneous EXPLOSIONS yesterday.



1 18 year-old self proclaimed "bloated" girl + constant hormonal stuff (aka PCOS) +shopping for spring clothing at a billion stores where NOTHING FITS PROPERLY = KABOOM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!







pass the aspirin.

I am so sorry this exploded on you...... lots of asprin!

Marg said...

Not just 18 yr olds, 16 yr olds too!

Little Ms Blogger said...

Wow and they say Mother/Daughter shopping trips are supposed to be the stuff memories are made of.

I'm hoping there was enough aspirin in the bottle.

Alix said...

Aspirin? Pass the shotgun.

Momcat said...

I'm still bad at shopping for clothes. But as a teenager, I would co-operate for about 4 clothes changes and then dig in my heels. My mom was very good at buying on approval on her accounts and bringing home the clothes for me to try on. It was painful...

It all sounds so simple...

But I'm not sure how to acquire an 18 year-old self proclaimed "bloated" girl and what the legal methods are and even if I managed that, how can I guarantee there is "constant hormonal stuff" going on or do I need to give her or myself hormonal injections? And even if I go round a ton of shops I may find that inexplicably everything fits.

So what I'm saying is, can you prescribe a simpler method?

Lori said...

Oh yeahhhh - been there. My theory is that when you hear of otherwise healthy people killing over - it's not from a heart attack. It's from their teenagers. They simply have to be the hidden highest killer of otherwise healthy parents, right?

Anything Fits a Naked Man said...

Yeah, I don't think aspirin's going to do the trick! How about a good, stiff drink? Think I'll join you!

Steven Anthony said...

I think a martini might be more in order...lol

Brian Miller said...

asprin is the strongest thing you got?

Fiftiesmom said...

Thank you so much for this reminder! I was just thinking that my girls and I hadn't gone shopping together in awhile. Now I remember why!

Scope said...

Good thing I don't have a teenage daughter. Wow, all this warning stuff you provide. Yup, if I had a daughter who had just entered her teens, I would be nervous.

Oh.

Wait-a-second...

I'm getting one? In July? Well, she'll be different from every other teenage girl on the planet, right? Right? (Why are you laughing?)

(My word ver is "intif" I find that funny)

The Boob Nazi said...

ooohh, that's happened to me many of times.

Cheryl said...

My heart goes out to you in your time of distress.

Lorraine said...

I had one of those explosions all by myself this weekend - without the hormones! When did they stop making short sleeves? What's with these little cap sleeves and the puffy baby doll crap. If I wanted to look pregnant, I would shop in the maternity department. And fabric that shows every possible roll you have - no matter what size you are I might add! This is what we're up against. My sympathies to you both - it ain't easy!

Notes from a Broad said...

CHOCOLATE
Nothing else really works as well.
Take more later if symptoms return.

Momma Fargo said...

I'm glad it wasn't indigestion. But I can relate. I feel the same way. What is up with clothes these days!

ReadingRosie said...

I used to be that 18 year old girl...bloated and hormonal. Now I'm a 40ish perimenapausal midlife crisis losing my sanity nutjob. Want to go shopping?

Haven't you learned by now that you shouldn't shop w/your teen daughter? It's a disaster in the making. Always. I couldn't shop w/my mom until I was 20 or so.

SkylersDad said...

Soooo very happy I don't have to go through that!

Sara said...

I'd love to laugh at her a little for that... but I've definitely done it.

So, I invite you to laugh at me as well!

WeaselMomma said...

I hope you have been practicing your duck and cover move.

Sierra said...

18 AND PCOS?

RUN (to the liquor store to buy more vodka)

Locking yourself in the room helps too. Use earplugs for the screaming.

Cora said...

*snicker*

Reminds me of Animaniacs "Katie Kaboom" episodes. Sooooooooo true.

Mellodee said...

Courage! One day (probably sooner rather than later) your offspring will move out, become self-supporting, and possibly even revert to the sweet loving, sensible daughter you used to have!! Its worth waiting for!! :)

Expat mum said...

Or a 17 year old girl coming home from school, pissed as hell at the math teacher. Yup - that's lovely too!

The Pipster said...

It's Thursday night and I can drink my vodka and Fresca because I am taking tomorrow off. Cheers to you after a shitty trip to ye old mall.

Just one word....cocktails :)

Joanie M said...

And that's exactly why I don't go clothes shopping with either of my daughters.

The Blue Zoo said...

Ha! This happens to me every now again too! My husband hates shopping with me. =P

Alyssa said...

This was a great post...pcos is no fun I know from first hand experience. At least you caught it when she was young.

Anne said...

I can top you today.... had to get a substitute 20 minutes into the day to take my second grader home, where I proceeded to pull 125 or so nits and one live bug from her head. Guess who's still doing laundry? I sooooo wish this was an April Fools Joke.

Captain Dumbass said...

There will be no negotiating.

Mimi Lenox said...

That goes for not-so-young girls too.
Blah!
