Inaugural Post - DB

Well, here it is. The inaugural post of the Bowdenisms blog. There's a lot of pressure to come up with witty posts and do so on a regular basis. I won't lie to you... I have pipe dreams of being so fiendishly funny and entertaining that somebody pays me gobs of money to write blog posts all day. This won't be a celebrity blog like, although I encourage you to check out his blog, however, I do reserve the right to steal his posts and make comments on them as I see fit.

So you may be wondering... "Why Bowdenisms as the name of your blog?"

There are 2 reasons:

1.) Courtney decided that was the name after many failed attempts of coming up with the most clever blog name ever.

2.) While I was a teacher, I was told by many students that I have "Bowdenisms"; things that only I would say in public and say them on a fairly regular basis. Coincidentally, Courtney was told by one of her co-workers that a phrase she says regularly was a "Bowdenism." It's interesting to me that that her co-worker chose to call it a Bowdenism and not a Courtney-ism.

And so, the blog was born. The blog will be thoughts from both Courtney and me (Dustin) which will hopefully keep it updated regularly. Given that it's a shared blog between a married couple, I can tell that you are hesitant to fully subscribe. Guys are wondering if I'll talk about the Eagles, MMA, and.... (is there anything else?) And girls will be wondering when the men will shut up and talk about things that matter. (shampoo, nail polish... that sort of thing)

So to save you from any confusion, I will place my moniker (eat that Parsons!) in the title of the post. That way, you lady readers can skip right over it if you so choose.

Now, on to the meat of this post:

You may be wondering, "What are some of Dustin's Bowdenisms?"

Here are some in no particular order:
1.) "Sweet Fancy Moses!"
2.) "Essentially" - apparently I say it a lot according to students
3.) "WORD!"
4.) "She does nothing for me"
5.) "Bam!"
6.) "Some days you da' windshield, other days you da' bug"
7.) I'm so hungry ... I could eat the ass out of a hobby horse
8.) I'm so hungry ... I'd eat the south bound end of a north bound skunk

A lot of these I stole from various places. Many of them came from Bobby B. (my father). The list is much longer, but I'll stop with these for now as this post is too long.

Hope you check back.
