Standing here screaming

Sometimes people annoy me. Other times I am stuck in a really funny situation. All in all, I just got to share it!

2 posts in one

Nobody reads me anymore since I haven't been blogging as steady anymore so since I have two posts that won't be read anyway, I'm putting them together. They're short.

#1 The most annoying thing ever:

Right now If asked what the most annoying thing is, I would probably try to be funny by answering the screaming sound that jim carrey does in dumb and dumber, "wanna hear the most annoying sound?"
But in truth the most annoying thing to me is that sticker that is put on a new cd. You know the one that is under the plastic wrap? The excitement of getting a new cd is overwhelming. You rush home to listen to it, or rather rush to pop it into your cd player in your car. Rip open the plastic, get ready to open the case and nothing. You absolutely cannot open it. There is a long sticker the length of the side of the cd holding it shut. Getting this sticker off is not a simple task either. I think it takes me about 20 minutes every time. You get a little corner, are all ready to peel and come up with a tiny sliver of sticker, over and over again. What, I ask, is the exact purpose of this little sticker? Is it just in case someone opens trys to steal the cd in the store? Cuz if that's the case, they'd first have to rip all the plastic off and open the cd case. Why wouldn't they just steal the whole thing? I can't imagine it is for the safety of the cd. Isn't the plastic wrap enough. Who thought of this silly little sticker anyway? I think I need to write them a letter.

#2 Ladies: who wants to be the first to throw a pie in Aaron's face?

The following conversation was exchanged between Aaron and I yesterday.
Aaron burned his finger while sauteeing onions

Me: How's your finger Aaron?
Him: it's fine, I don't feel pain anymore since I broke my ankle.
Me: that's good for you but I still feel pain from things after giving birth.
Him: (major pause) um. I hate to say this but I think the pain from me breaking my ankle is a lot worse than giving birth.

What??!!! he must be joking. That's it. Funny funny har har. Because if he's not, he has completely lost his mind. lost it. There is a reason men don't give birth. Besides for the obvious body part issue, there is no way they could handle it. Seriously. They can't even handle being sick. But I digress. If you are a lady who has experienced the joys and pains of childbirth and would get great pleasure of throwing a pie in my husband's face please feel free to contact me at your convenience. You supply the pie.

    even if people don't comment it does not alway mean they don't read, sometimes we're just a little lazy:)

    If you supply the pie, I'll be more than happy to render my services!

  • At 8:36 AM, Blogger Ezzie said…

    I'm with Prag. :)

    I just saw Aaron a couple days ago... he's so nice, don't throw pie at him!

    Also, I'm with you on the CDs thing. That's one reason I don't bother buying CDs, generally.

  • At 3:21 PM, Blogger Lindsay said…

    i haven't given birth...[[obvs]]
    but, can i throw one at him anyway??

    hahaha just kidding.

  • At 6:35 PM, Blogger Rebecca said…

    prag- okay good to know.
    ayelet- okay fine I'll supply the pie. I missed you!!!
    Ezzie- yeah he may be nice but ask Serach what she thinks about his comment.
    linds- You can most def. throw a pie in his face anyway. Def.

  • At 6:09 AM, Blogger MUST Gum Addict said…

    Don't be silly Rebecca -- we read your blog all the time :)

    You mean people still buy CD's? Sheesh. I just download stuff from iTunes. Unless of course you were buying a Jewish CD (sorry for accusing you as such)... can you share which CD it was?

    BTW, most big record stores (Virgin, Tower, etc) sell a little plastic thing that slices open those CD stickers in a second. You can put it on your keychain and they cost like a buck or so. Sounds like you need to go out and get one of those...

    As for the pie, everything is relative. It's obvious that Aaron has a low threshold or concept of what pain is. I'm sure his injury was very painful, and from the way you described the accident when it happened, and the issues he went through afterwards, it was certainly traumatic for him. But the actual pain isn't really the whole story, is it?

    I mean, as much pain as you were in leading up to and during childbirth, you would do it again, no? I doubt Aaron would elect to go through his ankle injury/surgery again.

    And secondly, the result of your pain was probably one of the biggest joys in your life. Only judging from your other blog, Estee is a gift that is so great, that you can't imagine NOT having her. In contrast, the result of Aaron's injury is probably fear for the rest of his life each time he walks on ice and maybe he can't run like he used to.

    I'm not justifying his comment -- in my opinion, I think it was a REALLY dumb thing to say. But rather than toss a pie in his face, I'd ask him what his most favorite pie is and make one for him. Then I'd sit down in front of him and eat the whole pie myself and not let him have any...

    My Name is Aaron and I would like to profusely apologise for every stupid thing ever said by Males about pain and Child birth.

    I'm not that Aaron [recently severely injured with ankle in mouth] just another Aaron who after seeing my three girls come into this world, have only just started to comprehend the depth of Love a woman must have for her partner to have more than one child.

    Two tips in the 'Male book of childbirth'.

    1. Don't just 'step out' for pizza
    2. Stand 1 and half arm lengths away from loving Partner.

    regards Aaron

    There is a reason men don't give birth.

    We are too smart to do something so silly. ;)

  • At 4:08 AM, Blogger Rebecca said…

    must- first of all thanks for always reading! Second, it was an elmo CD for Estee that my father bought her. I don't buy cds (unless jewish) I just listen to all my old stuff from back in the day when music was still good. I didn't know you can get a cutter like that. That is too cool. Thanks. As for the pie, it's coconut cream. I'll make one this weekend. haha.
    bagel- thanks for stopping by. It is so beautiful what you said about your daughters. Not every body sees it that way though. How old are your girls?
    Jack- hahhaha very funny.

    I just wanted to defend myself. I am aware although have not experienced how painful childbirth is but I would like to make a few points. When giving birth most women get epiderols (i don't know how to spell it) so they don't feel most of the pain. When falling and breaking your ankle in three spots and tearing all of the ligaments there is no escaping the pain. After childbirth you are given painkillers and your body heals and the pain gradually goes away. When you break your ankle like I did the painkillers do not work and you have to wait a few days and in some cases a week before the swelling goes down while still in the maximum amount of pain before you can have surgery. Then you have the surgery in which a metal plate and six screws are put into your ankle after you leg is cut open. I know some women have to be cut open and stiched up as well so there situation might be worse but those stiches go away while the plate and screws do not. Following that surgery, the next step was an angiogram which after that is done you cannot move for over an hour after you wake up. Women are allowed to move however they want as long as they can. I am not going to go into detail about the rest of what happened regarding my ankle but it has been well over 8 mnonths and I am still not back to normal. After giving birth it does not take 1 year to fully recover. Although many women might still disagree there has got to be at least one women someone could find that has given birth and has broken her ankle the way I did and ask her which she thinks was worse.

    Hey! No one reads my blog either! ;)

    I have a new URL - if you are one of my few readers, come and bookmark me! :)

  • At 4:27 PM, Blogger Rebecca said…

    oh my goodness. Aaron you're crazy. I am not going to even address this. But I will say that my epidural was removed before the pushing. Pushing hurts like hell. Think about the dynamics of it. You couldnt handle that in a million years. Second. there is a ton of pain before the epidural. Third there is nine months of discomfort and pain and vomiting your brains out all day long. Finally there is the tear and the stitches which hurts like hell and the pain killers dont work for that either. I really think you have gotten yourself into a lot of trouble for going into all that detail explaining why your ankle break is worse than giving birth. I think you have a lot of chutzpah.

  • At 7:23 AM, Blogger Father Of Estee said…

    Chutzpah? Even if you are vomiting for 9 months you are still able to walk around and are not restricted to much. Try not being able to shower and not being able to walk for a couple of months. Must gum Addict has a good point as Ezzie reaffirmed to me at The Shmuz last night. You would go through labor again for another child but I don't think you would want to break your ankle and go through what I went through.

  • At 4:42 PM, Blogger MUST Gum Addict said…

    OK both of you -- enough. Take a deep breath, and GO out and get some ice cream or something. maybe share one of those huge sundaes with all the whipped cream and butterscotch and fudge (and rainbow sprinkles of course).

    Aaron, think about all that Rebecca did for you while you were immobile. And Rebecca, think about all the things that Aaron did for you while you were pregnant and in the hospital.

    Aaron, did you ever think about how much mental pain Rebecca was in while you were hurt? If I remember reading her post from that day, she was quite freaked out from the accident too.

    Though you both probably didn't realize it at the time, you BOTH suffered from the pain of BOTH the ankle and the childbirth. So give yourself a big checkmark for living through the challenge and move on. You've still got your entire lives (and Estee's) ahead of you.

  • At 6:37 PM, Blogger Rebecca said…

    thanks must.

  • At 11:43 PM, Blogger Kar said…

    Yay Must!!

  • At 5:39 PM, Blogger Chana said…

    OK - back to add my 0.02 - excuse me while I point and laugh!

    Aaron - I could post my birth story where I was awake during my c-section from he!! and they basically beat the crap out of me and my son to the point that he ended up in the NICU for 3 days, but there are people here who would never procreate again if I did...

    After giving birth it does not take 1 year to fully recover - yeah, some people never do...

    I think its more painful to watch a loved one, in pain than to bear the pain yourself.

    Though this information has been released in the United States, most of the world is unaware that the Messiah has come, and has fulfilled all major Jewish, Christian, Gnostic and Masonic prophecies.

    He has been demonstrating unprecedented miracles, and has been punishing "apostate Christians" in America, on a massive scale.

    On Thursday April 12th 2012, he will be introduced to Israel, and he will be holding a live press event "for Israel bloggers only" at 7pm (Jerusalem time). He will be taking questions live, and you will be able to simulcast this interview on your blog, and ask him questions.

    If you are skeptical it is understandable, but unquestionable evidence has been gathered since his introduction in the U.S, and you can read some of it, and see the amazing video proof here:

    To better your chances of having your questions answered, we ask that you submit them in writing no later than April 9th, and we will reply with instructions on how your blog needs to connect to the event.

    You may begin promoting this event to your followers now.

    You have received this invitation from one of our clergy, but to send your questions and confirm your participation, send email to: with "Blog Interview" in the subject line.
