Peasus Chroust

Yesterday's post was a bit heavier than normal. But back to our regularly scheduled programing.

My grandmother is Catholic. And I grew up next door to her. I call her Bubba.

One of the things my grandmother hates is when I take the Lord's name in vain. (Which I do an alarming number of times a day.)

After saying "Jesus Christ!" more loudly than necessary at my desk, one of the girls I work with said, "you know you say that so often, I started saying it now!" and I was like ugh crap! I'm infecting the youth with my ungodly ways! but really I was like, "yikessss sorry about it. Bubba hates when I say it too." Also she's only a year younger than I am.

So we decided we needed to come up with an alternative that was not as sinful but still something I could say when something really irritates the snot out of me.

So we came up with Peasus Chroust.

Now, this isn't supposed to be and/or mean like a Jesus, Jesus, bo besus, banana-nana fo fesus, mi-my-mo mesus JESUS! Kind of scenario. It's not poking fun at the guy, I just needed an alternative!

So when you see me saying Chroust, this is why. And I'd be happy for you to join in with me on it. Because, truthfully, you don't want Bubba mad at you.

Also something that regularly drives me to curse? Trying to take a not-absolutely-obnoxious picture with Tom.
