Hi again, and welcome to the 4th I WONDER WEDNESDAY! I'm so glad you stopped by!

Did you ever wonder why you were selected to get the short straw? Let's just say, I didn't win the Body Lottery (try saying that 10 times fast!), BUT...I could have it so much worse. If you don't believe me, just go to the beach and see all those females that still wear bikinis when they R-E-A-L-L-Y NEED TO QUIT! (Warning...DO NOT ENLARGE TO SHOW DETAILS!)
That includes guys in Speedos too! Don't you just get a twitch when you see a guy in a Speedo...and not a good twitch? (Again...enlarge at your own risk!)
We, here at Confessions of a 40-Something Mama Queen don't discriminate...we call it like we see it!

I mean, I've sat and watched skinny friends eat 3x what I eat, and they stay skinny with little exercise. At my skinniest, I walked several miles each day, took 2 aerobics classes and lifted weights. I had a 26 inch waist. What the heck happened??? I said goodbye to that after childbirth! I don't think that there is a liposuction vacuum in the world that can remove all of this blubber. But, I will resolve to exercise more and eat yucky healthy foods as often as I can because I don't want to look like this for-ev-a!


Now today, Bo @ Blinks 'N Winks from Brown Eyes is also wondering something too! So be sure to stop by her blog and try to help her find some answers! We love it when you do that, you know!


Leigh said...

You sooo gave me a laugh tonight! The speedo thing. More than just a bad twitch...more like a full body heave. Its just wrong. I dont want to be that intimate with someone's boys. I mean, lets keep it all under cover, ya know? And I also know what cha meann on the bathing suit thing. IN fatc I will go a step further (and I will get poopooed) but if you are over 40, you should NOT be in a 2 piece not matter how good oyu look. Really I would say 35 on that age. My son, who is 18 agrees. Not matter how great you look, have a standard.

Ok, girl! I hope you can join me tomorrow for thrifty thrusday!

Melissa Miller said...

Girl you are toooo funny!

Didn't you know Bo did a post about you????


tam said...

Hey Penny-so it's your Birthday? Well here's wishin ya a very Happy Birthday!
Funny post!~Tam :D

Bo said...

Hi Tar...I didn't win the BODY LOTTERY either, but I am not quite as bad as those bathing beauties you have pictured...LOL
Hey, I did the math & I know exactly how many candles are on your cake...heehee
Hope you have a wonderous day! ♥ Bo

rebel said...

Happy Birthday! So, you're a pisces. Hmmmmm. Hope you have a great day.
You are wonderin' somethin' I wonder all the time! Why did my younger sister get the skinny genes? I mean really! She is 5'8" and slim almost to the point of bein' too skinny. When I saw her at Christmas she was talkin' about how her Dr. wants her to gain some weight! And she's not braggin', she says it in a worried voice. She has always said, "Sis, bein' skinny is not all it's cracked up to be." GIVE ME A BREAK! So says the skinny _ _ _ _ _! It's NOT fair. She is such a brat! I really do love her, I don't want you to think I don't, but I mean, here I am 5'2" and fight weight gain all the time and my skinny little _ _ _ _ _ of a sister has to struggle to keep weight on. I call her that to her face too. I'm not proud! Now I mean, how fair is that?
You always seem to wonder about things that get me goin'. Are you doin' it on purpose?
I love your 'I wonder Wednesday's'.

Will not enlarge pix, will not enlarge pix, oh drat I HAD to! Now I'll have nightmares. I would take this a step further and say that there are some people who should never START wearing bikinis and speedos. I promise you I'm in that group. And Rebel, I feel your pain, I've got one of those skinny minny sisters too. And Tar HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU! You do know that birthday cake has no calories for the birthday gal, right? Kathy

Kristen said...

I think you look great!
I wish it was as easy to loss weight as it is to gain weight!
FYI no matter how small I get I'll never wear a bikini...nope, never have and never will.

Happy birthday to you
Happy birthday to you
Happy birthday dear tardevil

Happy birthday to you

bj said...

Happy Happy Birthday to you, sweet Tar. I hope it is one of your very bestest, ever!!
Guys in Speedos are at the top of my "Good Gosh O'Mighty" List...
ok, sweetie, I don't know how old you are today ??
Blessed and fun day to you!

Stacey said...

I wonder how you knew how to express what all of us have thought about our bodies in one way or another. :)

Darlene said...

That is too funny!

Happy Birthday to you....
Happy Birthday toooo you....
Happy Birthday dear Penny....

Hope you have a GREAT one!

tardevil said...

Thanks, everyone! :O)

Beth in NC said...

IT IS YOUR BIRTHDAY?!?!? Girl, you didn't even give your date of birth on facebook? lol Ms. Secret Lady!

Happy Birthday!!! I hope you get all kinds of great treasures today!

Your post is a hoot. I never have understood people who wear bikinis who are fatter than me! I don't even feel comfortable in a regular bathing suit. I guess there is something to say about GOOD SELF-ESTEEM. lol

Love ya!

Michele said...

OMG...those pictures make me feel so much better about myself. I hate dieting and I hate exercising. I didn't get the good genes either...but oh well, I'm too old to worry about that now!


Cami @ Creating Myself said...

Happy Birthday Tar!!! Hope it's a great one!

I was born w/ the opposite genes. I was too thin for much of my life. I wish I had a dollar for every time somebody told me I was too skinny. Used to make me sooo mad...I wanted to say, "do you walk up to fat people & tell them they weigh too much?"

And they would always say, (w/ glee!) "wait until you hit 30, you'll get fat". Then "wait until you hit 40, you'll get fat."

Well boy were they wrong! it wasn't until I quit smoking @ 41 that I got fat. *grins* Wish you could have seen the jaws drop when I showed up at the first family function, after putting on 30 lbs in less than 6 mos.

So the "skinny sister" is now the "fat sister". I'm cool w/ that.... I'm still smarter than both of them put togther. ;o)

xinex said...

Happy Birthday Tar! LOL! Your post made me laugh so hard. That is so gross. I hate speedos!....Christine

coco said...

Happy Birthday! Those pictures are hilarious...I will just look at those when I want to feel thin! I was like Cami...always bordering on too thin until I hit 40 and my metabolism came to a screaching halt. I work out more than I ever have and I think I am in better shape than I ever was...I keep telling myself that muscle weighs more than fat! I have had a few friends lose weight recently and all of a sudden they look much older...all their wrinkles are right there for everyone to see! I agree with Leigh that by a certain age you should hang up the 2 piece for good! :)

restyled home said...

This gave me a good laugh! I always assume skinny people are happier. I know they say that's not necessarily true, but come on, it's one less thing to stress over, isn't it?

Happy Birthday!!!
I'm off to read that post!

The Quintessential Magpie said...

Okay, I think you need to hear this...

Happy Birthday to YOU!
Happy Birthday to YOU!
Happy Birthday, Dear Taaaaaaarrrrr!
Happy Birthday to YOU!

Hope your day is great...


Sheila :-)

How old are you?

Dee said...

I'm working on my body too! Maybe it's not too late? I hate being fat

Raggedy Girl said...


What a great post. First a photo that makes me feel a little less fluffy! And a girl who knows my heart. I am a prisoner in the battle of the bulge.

Have a Wonderful Wednesday!

carolinajewel said...

Happy Birthday!!!!!! Hope your day is wonderful! (And I wish I had gotten that "skinny" gene too!) :D Jewel

laurie @ bargain hunting said...

OMG! Those pictures are disgusting!
I wonder what makes people think they look good in those suits!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU! Hope you are having a wonderful day. laurie

jeanne said...

Hi Tardevil, Happy Birthday girl. You have been exposed. Not by a bikini either. Hope your day is a happy one. I firmly believe there are people who do not see what we see in a mirror. They go right along wearing the most unattractive clothing. LOL. We can not choose our genes but we can choose clothing that covers up the gene producing problems. Such is life...


Beth at Aunties said...

I was wishing while at the pool todayI had got the body genes... but thank heavens I didn't get those genes either!!! No I didn't enlarge:) LOL

I came to say Happy Birthday to You dear one of Blog Land!

My Cottage Dream said...

Ok!! That was funny!! Thanks.. laughing is healthy to, I just lost 5 pounds!!

Nancy said...

Very cute and funny! I wonder the same thing! ;) Nancy

Shelia said...

Oh, my goodness! That's funny, but it's awful at the same time! lol You're not gonna catch me in a bikini! Would not be a pretty sight.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Wa(i)sted talent!!

nikkicrumpet said...

The pictures made me actually feel better about myself...just a little!

Envoy-ette said...

I'm blind! The speedo did me in!
Ack! You know what I'm wondering? I'm wondering why that TV man beheaded his wife when he was trying so hard to show us how peace loving his religion is!

Theresa @ Take A Sentimental Journey said...

Happy Birthday dear ! And how did you get that pic of me and my friends ???? LOL . I don't even wear a bathing suit anymore.Have you ever seen an elephants ass ? You know; all droopy and saggy ? That's me LOL.

justabeachkat said...

Body Lottery? Too funn! And those photos....puhleese, don't do that to us again. It's bedtime and I don't need bad dreams. LOL


justabeachkat said...
