Wordfuse (Deny, Deny, Deny Edition)

pacifibs (noun): pacify + fibs = the lies we tell ourselves and others to cope, to placate, to smooth over, to take the edge off but mostly because the truth is just too scary. 




Comments indicative of this behavior range from the mild/moderate:
~"Pshaw. It can wait until tomorrow."
~"I don't weigh that much."
~"I can pay for this next month."

More extreme cases make remarks such as the following:
~"I'm not a hoarder; I'm a collector."
~"I can so rock this Speedo."
~Or if you're OJ Simpson, "I'm still looking for the killer, seriously."
~Or pretty much anything Lindsay Lohan says.
~Or all those enablers/parents of American Idol wannabes.
~Or especially those trying to justify their participation in this train-wreck.
~Or if you're me, "I totally look like Russell Crowe."

"Sure I need to buy these books before I read the other 80 on/stacked beside my nightstand."

"Pink hair is fine for a 30 year old"

"It's normal to wear pajama bottoms to the grocery store."

I can't hear the name Russell Crowe without thinking of this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5xtVipOjTEE

OMG that tiny little girl has giant gold Madonna-esque pointy boobs on!

dbs said...

Yeah. That freaked me out too.

Don't how many times i've heard "it can wait until tomorrow", most of the time tomorrow never comes and nothing gets done as usual :-).

"Everyone experiments with meth and huffing sometimes." Right? You're all with me on that one.

I don't need to buy maternity pants.

Peanut butter cups are totally a protein.

Everyone picks their pets based on their ability to fit their heads in their mouths.

I'm not fat, I'm just big boned.

Vinny C said...

Any answer to "Do these jeans make me look fat?" that doesn't end in you having to sleep outside.

Denial can be a healthy coping mechanism.
I still maintain that I don't hoard books. I COLLECT THEM.

That video was so disturbing. Thank you for the permanent damage to my soul.

so much truth in these...

Cheeseboy said...

But I DO rock that speedo! Maybe it's not small enough though.

dbs said...

@Windsmoke It's a classic, isn't it?
@Nicole Ha! Um, suuuuuure.
@Elly Lou I don't need maternity pants either.
@KevD Ditto.
@VinnyC So true.
@AC Me too.
@Charlie Yes it was. So sorry. Every time someone watches that show a book commits suicide.
@G Nice irony.
@Cheeseboy I suppose now when you reach X number of followers this will be your next dare?
