Moonstruck Slap

The other day I was complaining, probably endlessly, to DR about my sister.  She is acting so weird right now and we can't seem to talk and I am seriously frustrated by her.  He let me rattle off my complaints and then he said the perfect thing:

She needs a Moonstruck slap....like "Snap out of it!"  You know when Cher says that to Nicholas Cage?  That made me laugh and made me feel strangely better.  Because he is exactly right!  My sister needs a Moonstruck slap and to SNAP OUT OF IT!

So, that is my Tuesday Talk Talk!  My question to you is...do you know someone who needs a Moonstruck slap?  Alternate question, has anyone ever said anything to you, when you were feeling bad, that instantly made you feel better, especially if it was something right out of left field?  Talk Talk.

Sheesh, I could write a whole blog post about someone else that needs the 'get over it' slap.

For me, I've had a couple of those instances. One was from my dad, the other from my pastor. I think both actually said, "Get over it." I can't say it made me feel any better, but it needed to be said.

It's sure nice to have someone to vent at, huh? Glad you have a good venter-at-er.

Oh I know so many people who need a Moonstruck Slap. A few of them rapid fire, actually. I think I'm going to have to watch that movie again.

The latest quote that cracks us up involves swearing...Oooo, naughty!

My mom and I were watching the 80s movie "Silver Bullet" this past weekend, and the guy who is the werewolf corners the kid who knows his secret. He tries to explain to the kid why he selects certain people to kill, and then angrily says, "Do you SEE?! You meddling little shit?!"

It cracked us up, and my mom said she wants to try that on my brother when he's being too rude and unnecessarily nosey.

My sister could use more than one slap! Is there a moonstruck beating option?

Yes, we were on our way to do a family thing and I was very nervous about his family accepting me. I said after looking in the mirror
"Oh god, I look like a sea hag!"

Randy reached over and squeezed my leg and said "But you're MY sea hag!"

KenV: Well, you should write that post then! :-)
It is true that sometimes even hearing what you don't want to hear is just what you need.
And I am lucky to have a very understanding vent-at-er!

Tara: Hearing that from DR made me totally want to see that movie again too.
hahahaha! Oh, boy, I LOVE that line! I haven't seen that movie in year and years and clearly I must see it again. So perfect for a number of people I can think of. Awesome :-)

Ananda: Sounds like your sister needs the full Friday Night Smackdown :-D
Wow, Randy is making me melt a little from way over there. That is so sweet and perfect :-)

My brother. In fact, my sister texted me Monday to say she wanted to kick his ass. He's being delusional about a woman who has no interest in him, behaving like a lovesick middle schooler and on the verge of destroying a pretty good relationship that he's already in.

Ha ha. I know a bunch of guys who should stand in a row, so I can give them the Moe from the Three Stooges slap all the way down the line.

Secret: That sounds like a perfect example of someone who needs to be smacked back to reality.

Churlita: haha! I love that visual! Bap, bap, bap, bap, bap....snap out of it, guys!
