Six of the Many Things that Annoy Me

by Madam Z

People who try to tell jokes that they don’t remember very well. People who don’t appreciate my jokes, just because I don’t remember them very well. Dogs who insist on breathing on me. Dogs who insist on touching me with their noses. Women with naturally red hair, especially if they also have naturally flat stomachs. People who ask me, “How are you,” and then refuse to stick around for an extended, thorough, thoughtful answer.

6S

Madam Z, whose full catalog is here, could go on and on with this list, if she were not restrained by that annoying “six” limitation. Fortunately, there are no such restraints in her blog.

Alas, for despite my appreciation of your prose, I would annoy you intensely.

Ian said...

You know, this subject alone could probably support a blog such as this. Nice 6.

ever experience the dog nose while in the midst of a sexual act (with another person, of course, not the dog)?

talk about cold surprises!

Linda said...

It's that last one that gets me... why ask if you don't really care? A to-the-point 6S. Peace...

Madam Z said...

Margery: I'm glad, glad!

Leather: Don't tell me you have naturally red hair, a flat stomach and no time to hear how I am?

Ian: Oh yes, it probably could. We humans are a pretty irritable lot.

Roger: Not yet, but there's still time...

Linda: Yeah! Anyway!

I insist on making jokes, even though I'm not funny, which is pretty close to number one. Also, I am a fan of red-headed women with flat stomachs, natural or otherwise. Other than that, I'm right with you. One thing that definitely isn't irritating is this 6S.

I agree w/ all 6 - especially the last one!

I HATE when people ask me how I am, too, and bail when I actually tell them.

This is a great 6S, divaZ.

Nice.

Another well-written 6. Raising the bar for all of us. There are many things that annoy me, but never Madame Z!

awesome! especially because i mis-read it the first time round and got "Women with Dogs who insist on touching me with their noses."

A Rabbi, a priest and a dog whisperer go into a bar... or wait, no, wait,yeah a TALKING dog goes into a rubber raft and ...wait, no, dammit! Anyway dude, it was really funny. So anyway, how are you? Gotta go, toodles!

Madam Z said...

Harry, you're REALLY irritating me. But thanks for reminding me of that joke. But I think it was a rabbi, a priest wearing a rubber and a baptist dog and they were going to an AA meeting, but there was no smoking allowed so they went to the pond to cool off...or something like that, or maybe it was a mermaid...so anyway...

and thank you, all you other guys, for your nice comments. You don't irritate me at all!

Harry said...

Z, The world's your oyster but it's the irritant brings the pearl. You're already a jewel but I'd still like to rub you the right way.

Madam Z said...

Ah, pearls of wisdom from my favorite surfing cowboy. Any way you rub me is the right way, Harry.
