I met with a client at the hospital; I had a friend’s handiwork with me, as her condition was such that she may not live through an upcoming surgery, so I wanted her to have a will. She was wearing a hospital gown that looked like an art smock taken from the local preschool; it stopped about her waist. Her soft parts hung over and around the arm holes like pre-made biscuits getting squeezed out a can before going into the oven. She stood up to shimmy past where I was seated and plop down at a desk to sign the paperwork I’d brought. As she passed me and flashed her uncovered what-not along the way, she glanced down at herself, looked at me, and stated with no hint of irony:
“Excuse the sexy.”
There was no way I could avoid the guffaw that followed. I regained my composure and submitted the above to the Urban Dictionary. It was approved and can be found here.
Immortality, thy name is muskrat.
(incidentally, another way to help me achieve immortality is to vote for my “world’s greatest dad” video here!)
Oh, what a thing to read first thing in the morning before the very first sip of coffee… Congrats on joining the Urban train and second of all, at least she had a sense of humor about it!
@nipsy, Humor is essential in such situations.
I gave that a thumbs up!
@dave2, Didn’t know that was an option…thanks for sharing!

I love your client. Great story. I hope she’s still around, but if not, I hope she shimmied her *sexy* right on up to heaven.
@chris, She’s still around!
My love for the urban dictionary is deep. So props to you.
“Excuse the sexy” is officially my new favorite expression.
@ellie, That reminds me of my jimmy, then!
Congrats on your entry. Lawyers do get into some interesting situations, don’t they? You’re client has a great sense of the absurd. I hope she made it.
@surprised mom, Yes, she’s okay, and yes, we get all the good war stories.
–>That is Brilliant! I’ve been saying it for years (not really) but not with that much PIZAZZ.
@websavvymom, Thanks! Feel free to use at your leisure.
That. is. awesome.
@Sybil Law, I thought so too. I’m going to excuse the sexy every day now.
Very cool. if the phrase ends up on Gossip Girl in two weeks, do you get royalties?
@Didactic Pirate, I’m not sure. If I don’t and they use it, however, I may have to sue.
Entries in the Urban Dictionary actually have to get approved? Really?
@headbang8, Yes–it takes a day or two. I don’t think it’s a very high bar, though.
You may as well give up now… there’s no way you’re topping that. Ever.
@SciFi Dad, I believe you’re right.
I love it! I’m using it whenever and wherever it may or may not be appropriate. And of course thumbed it up!
@Kathy, It’s a good expression to tuck into your back pocket fo’sho’.
And here I was hoping that “muskrat” was in the UD for some reason. Maybe I should come up with a definition . . .
@avitable, Please do…you would do well in such an endeavor, I’m certain.
I don’t know how this works, do you get royalties if someone uses it? Maybe we can start a hashtag.
@PJ, Let’s start one and see what happens, ok?
Day-um. Why didn’t you tell me this 2 weeks ago?
I coulda had all sorts of fun with that.
You should totally get your headstone done now.
@Kelley, I’m not ready for a headstone yet!
HAHAHA! I know you stole one of those too short hospital gowns for your wifey! ha – tell the truth!
@jade, Yes, several. One for each of the seven colors in the rainbow.
omg that’s funny. the biscuit bit was quite clever.
That is awesome, my best laugh and smile of the week!
I have been searching for a time for just a reasonable study dealing with this kind of subject matter . Checking out in Aol I now uncovered this website. Reading this post I’m just happy to enunciate that I’ve got a great impression I discovered precisely what I was looking for. For certain i will be sure to don’t forget this blog and go here on a constant basis.
