Sarah Jessica Parker!!!!!! Explained

I keep forgetting to explain this - 


I went through a little phase shortly after my 3rd was born where I was a touch frazzled - I know that is very difficult to imagine - but with a 4 year old, a 2 year old and a newborn - I suddenly found myself using a variety of exclamations that I had never used before. One of these involved using the name of my Savior (whom I love and serve and really try hard not to use His name in vain) and his Mother and Father. Those three names together do sort of just roll off the tongue - you have to admit. Well - religious ideology not withstanding - I really could not be spouting out those names all the time with Little Pitchers with big ears repeating my every word and for whatever reason at that time in my life - it was a hard habit to break UNTIL I discovered a wonderful new exclamation....

Sarah Jessica Parker
It just rolls off the tongue with the exact same syllabic melody of the other but no offense taken by anyone other than the most die hard of Sex and the City fans and my thinking there was - hey take it as a compliment - a name so melodic and recognizable that it is an actual exclamation? So that is how it was born - instead of J,M, and J - I now shout with alarming regularity - "Sarah Jessica Parker that was loud" or sigh "Sarah Jessica Parker that scared me to death" or groan "Sarah Jessica Parker get out of the toilet".... you see? Watch out - it is very addicting - you could become a SJP exclamation junky just like me in the blink of an eye!

Hi! Found you on The Whole Family blog, and just about squirted coffee out of my nose and onto the keyboard when I read this post. I will be trying these syllables soon...perhaps regularly:)
