Do Not Teach Your Mother To Say Muffin Top


My mom who is pretty cool all in all, has been picking up bad habits of mine. Like I said "Muffin Top! Ewww!" When I saw a girl with a belly shirt and tight low rise jeans on... Mom looked at me quizzically and said "Muffin Top?" I said "Yeah it's the roll of fat that is squeezed out of the jeans and up and over the top." Oh, I see" said my mother.


And here's the kicker, Honey and I stopped by to see her yesterday and she says "You have a Muffin Top and you are getting too skinny!" Meanwhile my shorts are falling down to my hips and I have them belted so that they don't fall and my T-shirt went all the way down my belly to meet the top of the shorts. I SO DID NOT HAVE A MUFFIN TOP. Ladies that are 69 really don't need to be spouting off slang if they can't use it correctly... I don't care if she is wearing flared jeans with cute embroidery that are really cool. Obviously I forgot to mention "Muffin Top" is totally derogatory and SHOULD NEVER be used on family members.


Today I stop by again with Honey and she is going through magazines she asked if we wanted any of this month's issues of a variety of magazines. She has a subscription to "Blender Magazine", I grabbed that, I have a feeling she thought it was a cooking magazine when she signed up for it, it's actually a music magazine. Honey took the "Newsweeks". Oh and she hands me a "Healthy Living " magazines as if I don't spend an obsessive amount of times researching everything I put in my stomach..


I could go on about our antics today but this was just a brief synopsis of the appearance aspects..

I've always wondered what to call that! My Dad calls it a "spare tire", but Muffin Top is much closer...

Ha ha ha ... no kidding. That should be used VERY CAREFULLY!

i call it a meat hoop. if your mom is anything like mine, she couldn't wait to use the phrase. and i love that she told you have a muffin top AND that you are getting too skinny. it makes no sense.

Thank god you guys only have to endure this is ummmer time..here 365 days of the year and it usually comes with a whale tail..you know where you can see the thong pulled up the the top of the hips with low rise jeans..

Oh and Soapy..it doesn't make any sense..mostly we don't. We speak in code, my husband is fluent also. In fact we knighted him today but that's another story for another day..

I have thought about taking pictures of....certain things....and starting a web site called "Women Dressing Badly." There is lots of material out there, especially as summer approaches.

Ohhh, I would imagine that a mother with such information would be a hazard -- as is a pre schooler. Let me just say LittleMiss is also familiar with the term .. not good.
I LOVE that she thought Blender was a cooking mag. Too darned funny!

Then you'll totally love this story: we used to watch the movie, "Friday." And, there's that song on there: "...hood rat, hood rat, Hoochie Mama..."

So...I go off to college. My mom sends me cookies (Snickerdoodles of course) & signs the top with: Love, Your Hoochie Mama!

My room-mates & I all BUSTED OUT laughing. We thought is was so cute & funny.

Another story:
there was some line in rap song..."give me what ya got for a porkchop"...
So, my mom was randomly making an attempt at the song...jacked up the lyrics to say: "Whatcha gonna give me for porkchop?"

Good times...
Thanks for making me think of those things. They made me smile.
