Pigs have officially flown out my arse.
For the first time since my daughter's diagnosis on January 24, 2014, I was able to make only one refill request to the pharmacy. Then I made only one trip to the pharmacy and paid the copay and picked up her four vials of Apidra!!! No tears were shed and no profanities were uttered! (Insert soundtrack of an angelic choir singing a sustained perfect chord.)
No fourteen bazillion calls to BCBS, Sanofi, and the pharmacy, no 7 trips to the pharmacy after being reassured 6 times that "Everything has gone through insurance and you can come in and pick up her insulin, no problem."
New deductible begins January first. It may be awhile before my butt sees any further pig action...
Your post made me think, "....mmm....Bacon!"
Mmmmm, turkey bacon. Which should officially be called "tacon". (No treif human-eating piggies in our house!)
Oh, right. Yep, I'm an idiot! I'm laughing at my own cultural stupidity.
I can think of quite a few positive descriptors for you, but no negative ones. So take back the "I'm an idiot" right now.
She's a shrink. Do as she says.
Now I'm real nervous!
I'll retract "idiot", and maybe we can settle on "dunderhead".
"Dunderhead" is still negative. So nope, not acceptable. But I like the sound of the word and will begin using it synonymously with "asshat".
And don't try to sneak past by using a British idiom like "tosser", hoping no one will know what it means.
I've learned so much on this forum!
Clearly you have never watched Doc Martin. British series of which they have done 7 seasons. Set in Cornwall, one of the most beautiful places on Earth.

How strange. Not 20 minutes ago my 12 year old son and I were having a discussion on anthromorphizing, and wondered how you would express the same notion about pigs. We decided the right word would be omorphizing (from ὗς - modern greek is different, I think χοίρος).
Did you mean to say "anthropomorphizing"? Or can you make animals morph into humans?
Arghh. Yes, thank you:-) Typing too fast as usual!
There is a long tradition in western civilization of morphing humans into animals - for instance Circe (Κίρκη) did it for Ulysses' crew. Even I know how I can turn humans into pigs (a few bottles of slivovitz).
But the opposite, I am not sure... I wonder why it seems so much harder to go the other way in our psyche - there are many fewer stories for that kind of morphing. Hmm. Now you are making me think (my wife would not believe that possible).
The grammarian strikes! I had the same instinct. It's a good word. Sometimes when people see me out and about with my yellow labrador retriever service dog, they will comment that my dog seems sad. My dog is fit, well nourished, sees a vet when necessary, and walks with me about three miles every day. In other words he's a happy, well adjusted dog content that he rarely needs to be away from his human. When people assert his apparent sadness, anthropomorphizing is what my brain is thinking and my next thought is, "don't even think of attempting to say that out loud!"
