My ‘People I Want To Punch In The Face’ Book

Have you got one of these? A long list of names of people you’d really like to punch in the face. Maybe yours isn’t a book, I guess you could just have a list or one name written on a napkin.  

It’s actually something I’ve started saying a bit lately. It started a week or so ago when I saw a few comments on facebook from a guy on facebook (who has no children) accusing a mother of being overbearing because she didn’t want her child being exposed to pornography in public places. Fair call I think. There was nothing she, or other mothers, could say to defend their thoughts to change his opinion. He wrote obnoxious, rude, and callous comments accusing them of bad parenting. This guy clearly deserves a good punch in the face. I told him so too.

Then it became my staple saying. It’s like this imaginary physical release of frustration that makes me feel better. Rather than steam out the ears we go to pretty floaty ballerina. The imagary face punch is akin to punching a pillow, except that pillow punching is totally lame. Ever done that? So not helpful. Does NOT work.

So I'll stick with the face punch. Driver cuts me off. I want to punch him in the face. Overpriced dress? Face punch! Stolen wallet? Double face punch! Bird poops on newly washed car? Birdy face punch.

It’s a beautiful thing, don’t you think?


  1. Katrina, loved this post! You will appreciate the following story...Once Jay and I were at a ward Christmas party. We joke around a lot...probably more than we should. He said something smart and I jokingly said I was going to punch him in the face. The people sitting next to us were mortified! They even scooted their chairs further from us. I think they thought we were serious! After that, I wanted to punch them in the face :) Get a sense of humor :) Ha!

  2. I still can't believe the guy thought it was okay to expose your children to pornography. I've got a small hunch that he has a pornography problem and just maybe a good face punch would help.
