My Professional Background - Once upon a time, I wanted to be a motivational speaker. Actually, I was a professional motivational speaker for about 5 years.:
Not that you should care AT ALL about the nonsense that comes out of my mouth on a daily basis, but…well, I guess you wouldn’t be here if you didn’t care at all. So, thanks for caring, first of all!

But here are some things you’ll probably never hear me say. I say probably because I sometimes even surprise myself. Particularly when I hear something like, “Come on, kiddos, hop in the minivan! Let’s watch Sid the Science Kid!” come out of my mouth.

This list is by no means exhaustive:

1)  “Do you mind standing right behind me while you eat those carrots?”

2)  “MAN, does it feel good to finish that workout before the sun is even up!”

3)  “MAN, does it feel good to finish that workout!”

4)  “I just wish that person was a bit more vocal about their political views.”

5)  “Yessss! Another season of Keeping up with the Kardashians!”

6)  “There is nothing more attractive than a man in skinny jeans.”

7)  “I can’t wait to hear what the girls on The View have to say about this.”

8)  “I’m just not tired enough to take a nap right now.”

9)  “Honey, I killed the biggest spider today!”

10)  (While driving) “I know exactly where I am.”

11)  “My garden is really looking great.”

12)  “I really don’t want another pair of shoes.”

13)  “Can I swap the French fries for some steamed broccoli, please?”

14)  “Sometimes, I just wish I would speak my mind more often.”

15)  “I’m sick and tired of Law & Order reruns.”

16)  “My name is Katy Morgan, and I AM smarter than a fifth grader!”

17)  “I would never waste my valuable time watching shows like Dance Moms or Toddlers in Tiaras.”

18)  “Ok, son. Thanks for only asking me one time.”

19)  “Ugh. I’m just not in the mood to shop.”

20)  “It was just another quiet family get-together.”

Okay, your turn. What is something we will NEVER hear you say?

    Things you will never hear me say would be:
    “Hey, let’s go to Six Flags so I can ride the Free Fall.”
    “Hmmmm, hmmmm, let me have some more of that rutabaga!”
    “Honey, give me a second. I need to run in and ask for directions.”
    “No thank you. I don’t like Cheetohs.”
    “I hope I can get home in time to weed the flower beds.”
    “Get it. I don’t care what it cost.”

      Daddy, all of yours just cracked me up. But the last one is CLASSIC G-man. Oddly enough, it IS something you’ll hear my husband say. And that’s probably one of the reasons I married him. 🙂

    Things you will never hear Lauren say:

    “How bout them Gators?”
    “I hope you all enjoyed this four-course, from-scratch meal I just made.”
    It’s fine, I don’t need a stool…I can reach that.
    Sorry I’m being so quiet…I’m akward in social situations.
    While driving…I know exactly where we’re going!
    Nap? Who needs a nap? I got 9 hours of uninterupted sleep.

    Katy, I have been racking my brain and I don’t think there is a thing I wouldn’t say! Love you!

      I have a few for you:

      “I just can’t think of anything to say.”
      “It doesn’t matter which side the napkin is on…just as long as everyone has one.”
      “I don’t really have a ‘game plan.'”
      “It’s just adorable to me that your dad doesn’t know where he’s going most of the time.”
      “Sure, I’d love to stop what I’m doing!”

      Mom, honestly, this is way too easy…

      Brian has more, but he won’t let me publish them. 🙂

    Here’s mine …
    “My favorite thing to do in the morning is empty the dishwasher.”

    “I’m going to make that Paula Dean fried chicken and cheesy mashed potatoes recipe for dinner tonight.”

    “John, please tell me the escalator joke again!”

    “I am going to skip yoga this morning because I just got sick to my stomach” (HA!)

    Katy, this is too much fun!

      Haha! Robyn, one of these days I’m going to have to tell the story about you throwing up in the car on the way to yoga. Classic.

      Also, the escalator joke one was perfect.

    “My closets look JUST like yours!” In all seriousness, you need to take a trip to Vegas and organize my closets.

    oooh! these are great! My personal fave:

    “Sure sweetie, you can have my complete, uninterrupted* attention for as long as you need it!”

    *Note: I am not ashamed that I needed to use spell check on this word. I am not a spelling bee champ.

  11. Pamela

    September 19, 2012

    Stuff you’ll never hear me say…

    “I’m sooooo patient, I can wait until tomorrow!”

    “Yey! There’s no plan and no schedule!”

    “Yes, baby, you can go straight to bed without a bath.”

    Somehow I missed this post. Mmmm let’s see…

    “Spiders are my favorite!”

    “Oh, I eat broccoli any way I can get it!”

    “Yes! I am thrilled when I get to do a third load of dishes in one day.”

    “Son, please repeat every word I say. It makes my brain happy.”

    “I love the way that canned fish smells. Please come eat it right next to me.”

    “French fries, chocolate, and donuts? Oh, gross! How can you eat that junk?”

    • Katy in a Corner

      September 25, 2012

      Haha! The fish one was my favorite. Brian loves to talk about pilots he flies with that insist on eating canned tuna in the cockpit. The only thing worse than eating canned tuna is doing it in a small, enclosed environment.

    Oh gracious….how long do we have here????

    just a few things I will never say:

    “Oh honey, seriously your farts really smell like roses.”
    “Oh dont worry about cleaning up, I LOVE picking up 3,000 toy trucks and legos.”
    “I love changing poopy diapers….they are the best!”
    “Yummmmmmmm…….escargo, just might have 2 servings.”
    “No, I will not go spend all your money at the mall.”
    “I HATE diamonds”
    “I LOVE moving every 2 years, it is so REFRESHING!”
    ” NO, I do not want to spend all day at the spa.”
    “Sure, please go spend our entire life savings on hunting equipment….that would be AWESOME.”

    and finally (to begin and end with my husbands gas….because frankly it is EVERYWHERE)

    “Oh honey, my favorite thing is when you fart in bed and then fan it just so I can REALLY smell it…please do that ALL the time.”
