"After about 6 weeks of non stop tormenting me with which ever one came out first, let's say Achy Breaky Heart, I grabbed it out of the tape deck, pulled a little of the tape out and threw it out the window."

The difference between you and the person in the story this relates to (and the part that rescues you from SS-itude) is that you'd been forced to listen to it for weeks, presumably after you'd said you didn't like it.  She, on the other hand, did this on one of their first dates, and after a cursory sampling.  That's what makes these stories so different.

The second tossing is even farther from SS because he knew what happened the first time, so he was obviously picking on you because he liked you and fully expected you to defenestrate the irritant.  ;D

Am I the only one here who had to look up the word defenestrate?   ;D

Gosh, I use that word as often as I possibly can! It's one of my absolute favourites. ;D

Nope, but I'm probably the only one who really likes Billy Ray Cyrus. ;D

Me too... it always thrills me to death that there's a word that specifically means to eject someone via window.  Language is awesome.

I love it as well. It does NOT seem like it would mean what it means. It sounds more like a medical term, i.e., "I went to the ER last night with back pain and was diagnosed with a defenestrated kidney." or "The cause of death was defenestration of the spinal cord."

Well, to be fair that probably would kill you...

Then she decides that the asthma medication is making her heart race, so she takes her dad's heart medication (despite she herself not having a heart condition).

To be fair, it probably was. They gave me ventolin which is asthma medication to slow my labour and I thought my heart was going to pound out of my chest. Its a very unpleasant sensation. It started immediately and wore off in a couple of hours so I am picturing her popping handfuls of pills to treat side effects. Like Kirk in the new Trek movie.

I got really excited that I didn't have to look it up since, to me, it's fairly obscure.

An extinct forum I used to like going to had a member that PM'd me that he'd like to 'defenestrate' me. So I copied-n-pasted to dictionary.com and realized it wasn't something kind or helpful! ::)

One of my favourite TV facts is that every episode of Due South contained an incident of defenestration.

So every installation had an allocation of demonstration of the application of defenestration?  For education, or did it depend on the situation?

Oh man, I hate that song.  That was popular when I was in middle school and our gym teacher apparently loved it because during our square dance unit she'd have us dance to that song over and over. 

I do however love the Weird Al Version. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qJWWKj_wptY

I'm another one that hates that song but there are some lovely songs on the album such as the the title track "some gave all" not a song a song that would get on the pop charts (which i think was their intention when releasing "achy breaky")

I love that word - or I should say Snarky and Evil love that word.

They just threatened the embroidery machine (and there's a cement driveway under the second story sewing room - they could DO IT, easily) if she didn't start behaving herself and embroider properly.  SHE just came back from a three week stay at the sewing & embroidery machine spa!  Snarky and Evil had plans and the spa trip took priority on the budget.

That was cases of chocolate bunnies (especially if you wait until the day after Easter)!
