My Five Least Favorite Letters...

So what does the acronym "IBESR" mean? Here's what those dreaded letters don't mean.


Maybe if all the adoptive parents just stormed the office or had a sit-in or something, they'd sign us out? What about blasting loud, annoying music into the office? I've heard that works in hostage situations. What kind of music do you suggest? I'd say polka or Judas Priest. Little known fact about my hubby: he and his brothers snuck out of the house to see a Judas Priest concert when they were teenagers.


I don't believe I've ever had a rutabaga. Parsnips and turnips, yes.

Suspicious of
Railroad tracks?

Yep. They are actually one of my few phobias. I had a friend in middle school who was a child actress. I watched her in a made-for-tv-movie with Jane Fonda called The Dollmaker. There's a scary scene with a train (I won't go into details because it's just too troubling) and it scarred me life.

Reflux, then I need some Prevacid.

(not really)

Actually, it's the:

Institut du
Social et

In English, the Institute of Social Well-Being and Research. And I'm going to be forced to post more stupid things like this if we don't get out soon. It's crazy.

It seems like the last one is the funniest! Maybe what they're searching is how long it takes people to go crazy waiting!
The social well-being part is what gets me.

Oh, I hope you get out soon!

Sick of this

Oh Beth, this is a very funny post but I'm feeling your pain! I would riot with you too just let me know when and where!! :)

PS: Rutabagas are a really disgusting nasty thing but I still would eat them soggy and even pretent to like it if you could get out of IBESR tomorrow.

Kathy said...

Loved this post. The first one is my favorite! I would love to join the riot. It would feel good just to yell at someone- even a tree.
