This is How I Feel, Volume 50

this is how I feel

50. Fifty! Craaaaazyyyyy. It all started with this post. I did a follow up a little while later, then turned it into a monthly feature. We’ve been doing it once a week for awhile now, and after every single week I go “That’s it. I’ve run out of GIFs and I’ve run out of captions. We had a good run. Goodbye, sweet TIHIF, goodbye” and then I pour one out for TIHIF then grab like, four towels and a mop because that’s just messy.

I’ll keep doing them until I feel like there are no more funny things to share. WHICH IS EVERY WEEK.

If you’re new here (hello!), This is How I Feel happens on Fridays, reflecting my deep, deep love of GIFs and dumb captions.


When my mom asks me where she can buy a Walkman.

When I step on a wooden alphabet block.

When I’m in bed, drop my phone on the floor, and I lean over to see if I can grab it without actually getting out of bed like a responsible adult.

At the mall. Was it always this loud? And did it always smell like a mixture of sweat and Axe and vanilla body spray?

When I see my friend in new jeans. “SO CUTE! TURN AROUND AND LET ME SEE YOUR BUTT!”

    I do the bed one all of the time. My husband watches me struggle and I can always reach it mostly without hurting myself. I may have fallen a couple of times…

    What’s almost worse is when I am trying to lay down and use my iPad and my arms give out and I drop the iPad on my face.

      I drop my tablet on my face all. the. time. And every time I feel like a total spaz!

        Oh man, I snort laughed at that visual. I do the same – even with my teeny little android phone! I can carry babies around no worries but give me something hard and let me hold it above my face and suddenly gravity’s laughing.

    Thanks for making me laugh every Friday. By Friday I’m about to crawl under my desk and take an exhaustion nap but TIHIF saves the day every time. You pretty much rock my socks off.

    Never actually get out of bed. Do people actually do that, without trying to get whatever it is first?

    I don’t even watch Game of Thrones, but that last one is priceless.

    My problem isn’t reaching the object I dropped. It’s getting back up…. I think I need to work on my core…

      Bahahahaha! My thoughts exactly! Oh core, why do you fail me in my moment of need?!

  • Reply Jessica April 11, 2014 at 12:52 pm

    Don’t ever stop!!

    LOL I’m with Mandi on getting back up after the lean. So good!

    I choked on my lemonade with the alphabet blocks one – although for us, it’s those evil Lego pieces.

    Bahahaha. I feel like that about my parents too. And that jeans one!! STAHP. How can you even judge jeans without that crucial test??

    Oh phone. I hate my phone right now. I came home from grocery shopping a couple weeks ago and dropped a can on my toe. The reaction to that caused my purse to tip and for my iphone to land face down on my stone tile kitchen floor. It shattered. My upgrade isn’t available until May 31st, what did I do to deserve this junky karma???

    Bahahahahaha, that phone one! So true…

    NO joke I did the whole reach out of my bed for the cell phone thing and the phone was wayyyy further than I thought. I face planted HARD. So hard, that I was still hurting a week and a half later and ended up having to get a root canal! My laziness knows no bounds…
