Saturday Night Special: Embracing The Pain

Momo Fali is one of my bloggie besties. She is always a pleasure to talk to, whether it’s on the phone, on Facebook, on Twitter, or of course, in person. (And whether we’re speaking English OR French.) I adore her.


My Momo and me

The other night, we were on Twitter, having a discussion about her first day of boot camp and her reentry into a health and fitness plan. The conversation was just too good to leave there in the black hole of Twitter archives, so I preserved it in possibly one of the funniest things I’ve ever created. (Thanks for the comedy gold, Momo! And I made you the girl. You’re welcome!)

Check out Momo’s own report on how that first boot camp session went by clicking here.

    The sad thing is that I "overhead" the initial version of the conversation and could tell what was coming next. But holy cow do you find the most bizarre things to make funny things funnier. I love it. And I want one of those bedazzled t-shirts 😉

    My word? UpYers. I swear.

  • SurprisedMom

    You are a funny lady, Melisa! When I get up the courage to join a boot camp to get healthy, you'll be the first one I call!

  • Momo Fali

    "I can see the future."

    My word verification? "dimpl" Even your word verification knows about my thighs!!

  • Momo Fali

    I can NOT stop watching this! You have the funniest lines!

    "Do we need a Ben Gay wagon?"
    "Crap, we look awesome."

    I am cracking up!

    I couldn't understand what was so funny until I clicked over… the vid doesn't show up at all in the feed. Hilarious, though!

  • Heather

    This is too funny! hahah.

    (Not really good for me to laugh right now so I'm trying to suppress it so my chest doesn't feel stabby but I had to come over here.)

    Bedazzled "Embrace The Pain" T-shirts, I'm thinking those fly off the shelf at Blogher 2011.
    My mother had a bedazzler when I was a child. I'm now 41 and the therapy isn't helping. To the day, at any given time she'll wear a denim shirt with some shiny something on it.
    What burb? We lived in Chicago (Lincoln Square) for 13 years, miss it so much it hurts sometimes.

  • NukeDad

    That was great! I've seen those before, but didn't know you could make your own. THAT'S how far out of the loop I am. Great job, Momo! Keep it up!

    Ohhhhh crap! I am laughing over here and I JUST DID SIT UPS and I am NOT embracing the pain very well, Melisa. Not at all.

    Owie ow.

    Now get bedazzling.
