Funny Foto Friday: SUAR Sticker

About two weeks back, Beth from the Shut Up and Run blog announced that she had made real live stickers for fans of her blog.  Just like Kathy Lee Gifford at a wine tasting event, I was all in.  When I received my sticker, I hemmed and hawed about where I should put it.  I was reminded of when I was 7 years old in the gas station trying to pick out what type of candy bar I wanted.....  Do I go for the skittles or the fun-dip......or the gobstoppers!!?!?!  GAH!

Let me invite you into a pictorial view of my thought process.  Since men really do think about sex every 7 seconds, I've tried to edit it for content.

First, I went to the obvious: underwear drawer my running corner where I store all of my race medals.  It honestly did fit really well there, but I thought that I could probably do better.  Besides, I'm all about symmetry, so I'd probably have to whip up some Boring Runner stickers if I was to keep it there.  (That gets me thinking....)

But, then I thought that I should put it on my laptop.  You know, like the kids are doing.  But, if I did that, I'd have to start dressing hip (it seems that flannel is STILL in??) and saying things like "Wow, that Justin Bieber is like the new Justin Timberlake!"  Better keep looking, I'm not yet willing to commit to anything Tim Gunn says.

Of course, there is the stereotypical back of the car.  You've seen those before.  Someone has an oval on the back of their car that says BLO and you're left wondering if they like the Boston Lyric Opera or if they like to blow dry their hair.  I was afraid that people would think that I loved hanging out in sewers ninja turtle style so I kept looking.....

Boobs......Sex.....Boobs......

BUT THEN!!  Then I remembered that Beth too was a fan of Justin Bieber the sauce.  I first tried my wine fridge which was fairly well stocked and my wine rack which has fallen victim to a few too many midnight cravings and too few wine store trips.  Both worked, but when I drink I like to be alone in my thoughts....tears streaming down my face.  I don't want to be reminded of tomorrows run.  Therefore, the quest continued.


Ah, yes. But of course.  When people think of SUAR, they think of two things: runners trots and the skids (wait, is that two things?).  So, I of COURSE tested out a few of the obvious places where burritos go to die.  I'm not sure if the SUAR sticker made me want to drop a deuce more or less, but I ultimately decided that, just like when I am drinking, my toilet time is my private time.  

Since I am also trying to involve my son in anything and everything (cat calling, drinking, all things a baby should be good at) I thought that I might as well start him running early by putting the sticker on his diaper genie or his wall hanging diaper storage deal that my wife put up.  All of which were good, but I felt like I owed Beth more.


But, at the end of the day, I decided that I would honor the spirit of the S.U.A.R. blog and would instead put it over the snooze button on my alarm clock. That way, each and every day that I want to snooze through my workout that morning I'll think that, in spite of a stress fracture in her hip, Beth is out there.  So I should be too!


I'm shipping the little man off to military school tomorrow (his salute is getting WAY to lax), so I plan on getting all caught up on all of the 355 blogs then.  Happy Friday!

This post was awesome!!! Loved it. I'm sure Beth will too. I'm still working on a perfect place for mine.

Oh you know how much I loved this post. It's true, I do like the sauce and we're not talking Ragu. I could probably be convinced to like Justin Beiber if he bought me some wine or had a large vein in his bicep.

Toilet has been done. Diapers don't allow for messes and good blog posts. Snooze button is genius.

Jamoosh said...

You know, if it was a rockin' beer fridge instead of a hoity toity wine fridge, a SUAR sticker would have been perfect!

Amanda@runninghood said...

This is great! Mine is on my jogger stroller. Snooze button is perfect!

Luke said...

I lvoe it! and i'm pretty sure that anyone who is young enough to like Justin Bieber is too young to even know who Justin Timberlake is.

Chad said...

I would definitely put a Boring Adam sticker on the Beer Fridge... it would have to be a 6" cut out of your head, at mile 20!!!

Chris K said...

So Beth mailed you one, eh? Well, today she delivered mine in person. I win.

...Barbie... said...

RunnuRMark said...

Well done. I say that it really belongs on the shitter, but the problem with that is you can't see it WHILE you're doing your business.

Ha ha ha ha hilarious! I was cracking up seriuosly. Then my husband came to see what all the comotion was about. I tried to explain. He doesn't get it. All he had to say was, "A dude that blogs?" Yeah, he doesn't get it but I thought it was hilarious....

Rose said...

My husband needs to put something like that on his snooze button, but maybe something more painful and spiky.
