comebacks please



I really want to put words to this song I have made up on the piano. It's a pretty tune and the words needed would be somewhat serious and meaningful I would think.

So yesterday I was at the piano trying to come up with some words to my song. My mind was blank. "What do I feel when I play this?" I would just sing silly stuff...just kind of entertaining myself- but then for some random reason I started to think about the guys I have dated in the past and especially the ones who wouldn't let me break up with them first...because I was so desperately in love with them...and my pride couldn't get over the thought, "why didn't they like me as much as I liked them?" Do any of you reflect back on stupid things like this? Well suddenly I started to sing "man hater-I'm so hot- your loss" kind of words to my song and no it didn't go well with the melody but it was so fun...

I need your comebacks. You see, I dated this guy once who swept me off my feet- he had a pull on me (this is pre-chay mind you) and I fell for him pretty hard. Well one day in the car he looked at me and said, "April...you have almost everything I want in a girl...it's like you have 9 out of the 10 things I am looking for in a girl" Who says that?? At the time I was so devastated and obviously lacked self esteem that I immediately thought, "tell me that 10th thing and I'll be it for you" I know pathetic. Don't worry I know...I was kind of lost at that time in my life- but so...now that we all know better, grown up a little, love ourselves a whole lot more and are completely disgusted with what this guy said to me...let's play the perfect comeback game! Write and tell me what I should have said back at that moment in the car! Do you want to play?

best comeback wins!

I would be at a loss for the comeback. I would probably dump him because he obviously didn't see that you had 10 out of 10. And who says that kind of thing anyway!! He was the one missing the things you needed...you just didn't know it then :)

Who was this guy?!?!? What an IDIOT!!! I feel sorry for the girl who married him, if he ever got married, that is! I have to admit, I would have been totally taken aback and would've had no idea what to say either.... Ok, let's see.... comebacks....
1."What? My boobs are too big?"
2."I've been thinking the same thing about you! You're just not good enough for me. I am not one to "settle" for anything less than what I deserve."
Or, you could have burped and blew it in his face! Or farted on his pillow....

oh Jaynee- I love the "what? my boobs are too big?" that has to be the reason why he didn't like me...oh how funny.

April said...

I totally should have farted...in the car with the windows rolled up...and then said, "I guess I just got knocked down to only 8 out of 10 things you want in a girl" lol- thanks Jaynee for always making me laugh

Heather said...

Oh my gosh, I think I remember this guy, did I meet him?? I don't know what I would have said in that position. I can't believe that anybody would say that to someone's face. So my come back would have been something like "You know I was really starting to think that something was wrong with me, now I know something is wrong with you."

You could have said baby, I am unrateable....hahahahah

Heather said...

OK Ok I got it. Now that I have been thinking and brain storming.... I have got it. He is gay. You just simply could have looked him in the eye and said. Sweet heart I am sorry that I am not a man. But there is nothing that I can do to change that. hahahahah ok now that I need to go cleans my soul, I am going to bed!!!! Love you!

I don't know what I would say - it's always easier to think about it after the fact. But I think it would be really great to focus on the positive here - and say "Wow- 9out of 10 is a high score, thanks for the compliment."

Marne said...

"Well, you know, I was just about to tell you that you only have about 4 out of the 10 things I want in a guy, so perfect. We are not made for each other."

EDK said...

"Honey...I do have all the 10 qualities you want in a woman, but it's to bad and so sad that you only had one of the qualities I want it a man, and looks like you just blew it! See ya, wouldn't want to be ya!!!!"

I would tell him that he had a booger hanging out of his nose. Then I would probably stalk him for a few weeks and try to prevent him from dating anyone else so soon after me. Good thing I'm married now, huh?

Marie said...

Wow - that must have been harsh! So now you can think of these comebacks in advance and share them with your girls when the time comes...
Maybe you could have said: "Well, I guess that means game over - for you; now please take me home so I can scratch GENTLEMAN off your list of redeeming qualities."
