feeling better

Wow, these antibiotics work fast . . . I'm feeling better already. I'm still a little weak, but much better than the past few days. I'm planning on resuming my normal workout on Friday morning with an easy 3 mile run.

On another note - went to Starbucks this morning and the cute counter boy handed me my change and said "Thanks Ma'am" - I think that's southern for "too old to be hot anymore."

Food log: coffee w/cream, antibiotic ---> 215 calories. 1/2 Chicken salad on wheat, 1/2 olive, 1/4 c potato salad ---> 607 calories.

Maybe he was being respectful but he really thinks of you as a MILF.

hee. MILF.

yeah, i got called ma'am a couple of days ago at bed, bath and beyond, and i was freaked out. the dude called me ma'am four or five times. i was like, DO I LOOK OLD?

sometimes it helps me to remember that it's a respectful, quirky southern thing. but sometimes that doesn't help at all.

i'm glad you're feeling better.

Let's just believe that his mother actually taught him some manners. You're never too old to be hot - we're still young! Glad you're feeling better.

I tell people Ma'am and Sir at work, and it's just something I do because I was raised like that. I do it in almost every scenario even id they are a few years my senior. He probably isn't aware he is doing, my Mom used to smack me if I didn't say it. LOL.... New Yorkers eat it up though

"coffee w/cream, antibiotic ---> 215 calories"

Wow, how many calories are in those antibiotics?

I think Sir or Ma'am is better than the Hon or Sweetie I get from my coffee shop. That's a little to creepy for me.

What if he would have said, "Thanks, MILF". Would that have made you fell better? ;)

You bring up a good point, as I use Ma'am all the time (and I'm from the Midwest thing, so the South theory doesn't fly). What should someone call a woman they don't know?

Should he say, "Thank you, Lady" or "Thank you, Woman"? I think Ma'am sounds much more polite than those two.

So what do all you females out there prefered to be called by a male you don't know? It would be interesting to hear what you have to say.

I am leaving the whole MILF comment alone, but I must admit that when I am amongst the guys we use that term in describing women quite often. Bad, Bad, Bad I know. I had to explain what it meant to my wife as well. She just rolled her eyes.

Glad you're starting to feel better! I still feel like hell. Maybe I should get me some of those pills!

Suzie, if you truly didn't know what MILF stood for, then you deserve to be called ma'am!

OH MY and so I do . . . FYI - don't google MILF while at work.

HAAAA! You didn't? You DID... Wow, now that's showing your age...

hee...

This has been really fun!

Yeah - I agree on the whole "ma'am" thing! Don't feel bad Susan - I didn't know what a MILF was until my daughter's guy friends started telling her (beginning in Middle school) that her mom was a MILF. I think my face would turn red if they said that to my face!

Happy to hear you are feeling better!!!

Would you prefer Dudette?
Consider the formal choices here: if the guy is astute enough to determine you are not married (rings?) he should address you as Miss. The only other non slang alternative is Ma'am (Madame), unless you like Sweety, Hon or Babe.
Oh, and even if you do feel better I recommend the bourbon, just to wash down the antibiotic.

Good to hear you are on the mend 0 but take it easy - don't want a relapse.

i don't like sweetie, hon, or babe, but i wouldn't mind being called madame.

but it has to be said in a cool french accent.

it would probably make me feel brothel-ish, but still. better than being called ma'am.
