    Just read it. Loved it. “My hand to heaven.” might just be my new favorite thing to say. I’ll credit you, I promise. It’s a pleasure to read you, wonder what took me so long. I’m a bit slow, I guess.

    SO full of win, Maggie. So full. of. win.

    You and Heather are like chocolate and peanut butter. It’s hard telling who is which, though.

    I am shocked – SHOCKED i tell you, and maybe even appalled. I just had NO IDEA that delicate flower Heather was capable of such crude behavior! No. Idea.

    LOL Funny post – I read both of you regularly (and in fact subscribe to the feeds for both), so when I read Heather’s version of that story some while ago, I thought to myself, “Huh. I certainly hope Heather offered to cover the cost of getting those windows fixed.”

    Heh heh heh .

    OMG – best post I’ve read in awhile from either of you!! You’ve started my Tuesday morning w/ a nice, steaming cup of awesome!

    I think we need more Heather vs. Maggie versions of stories. It would make the world a fun place. :)

    I am 55. You make me want to have another baby (my final is now 16). There is so much cooler stuff out now. I started getting jealous in the late 90’s when I saw cup holders for lattes on the strollers. By the way, when i was first changing diapers on dirty restroom floors back in the late 80’s, I thought that if I were a business owner of any kind, I would put changing tables in both the ladies and the mens room as a customer courtesy. I knew it was the righteous thing to do. These days almost every restroom has one of those fold down changing table. Why didn’t I patent that thought when I had it?!!!

    I second the “my hand to heaven” thought. And I’m so glad Heather asked you to guest-post, otherwise I don’t know how long it would’ve taken me to find this mighty site. Rock on!

    I hadn’t been reading Dooce long when I read Heather’s account of the “inaudible burb” and my knee-jerk reaction was “Jeez, this friend sounds a little uptight. Loosen up, lady!” My SECOND thought (which occurred to me immediately following the first one) was “Waitaminute! I’m not too well-versed in the Doocespeak, but “inaudible” doesn’t sound like something Heather would do…Something is definitely fishy here.”

    Sooooooo glad you cleared that up!

    Loved your post yesterday. But, the quote from you in today’s “guest dooce” by Sarah Brown blew my mind. I think that is the best relationship/love advice EVER.

    maggie, i’ve started reading you recently, and i’m not ashamed to say that i adore you. also, i just KNEW there was a more accurate account of the ‘inaudible’ burb from heather. and i LOVE being right.

    Hah, I loved the burp story from the Allegedly Uptight Lady’s perspective. So, “inaudible” is Heatherspeak for “sits on top of you, steals your beer, moves in with you, borrows the car without asking and trains the parrot to say dirty words to guests.”

    Hey, at least it wasn’t a food smell burp. OR WAS IT?

    Love your writing…but I have to confess…what does ‘My hand to heaven’ mean? ‘I give up’?
