Do you have a temper? Have you ever broken things because you threw something or hit something too hard?


Me either.

Dammit | The Farm Paparazzi

My college roommates doing our best Tony Soprano impressions

Okay, to tell you the truth, I do have a temper. My parents, little brother, husband and college roommates will attest to that. Once I broke the towel rack in our hall bath because I thought it would be safe to hit things with a towel. A towel is soft, right? Well, it ripped the rack right out of the wall. I’m just being honest. Please, don’t think less of me.

I’ve gotten much better about controlling my temper, but every now and then I still feel like hitting something. My mom knows this about me and she brought something to my aid when my parents visited last week.Dammit | The Farm Paparazzi

It’s called a Dammit Doll. We’re new best friends.

Dammit | The Farm PaparazziThis poor little creature has one purpose…getting the stuffing knocked out of it. Short of tenderizing chicken breasts with a mallet, this is the best stress relief tool I’ve ever seen.

Dammit | The Farm PaparazziI haven’t used it yet for it’s official purpose (see I told you I was getting better at this self-control thing), but when I need it, my Dammit Doll will be there for me.

Thanks Mom,

    Again, I knew I liked you. And perfect timing on your post, today was particularly rough. I too have a temper and wish I had a cool story like breaking a towel rack. Things were better for my aggression when I could play soccer ๐Ÿ™‚ now I know what to ask Santa for christmas.

      Yes, the more we know about one another, the more we realize what kindred spirits we are, dear Angela!

    Oh, I do need that. I have ruined a curtain rod before. Yanking down the draperies just seemed better than causing bodily harm, right? In fact, I have had a run in with drapery hardware and drywall. Mercy. Now that I think about it, it’s a wonder there’s a curtain left hanging in this joint.

    It seems we are textile fixture demolishers. Let me know if the DD really helps – I may give my curtains a break. ๐Ÿ™‚

      So glad I’m not alone in my rein of terror against household fixtures! I have since used it and I must say, the Dammit Doll is a godsend. You definitely need one Emily. ๐Ÿ™‚

        Your review and subsequent recommendation have been noted! LOL ๐Ÿ™‚

    Your mother and I are still debating over whose fault it is that you got a temper. Neither one of us has ever thrown, broken, smashed, slammed, or yelled over something silly….at least not in the last hour. It’s a good thing that God and our family loves us warts and all!

      If Iโ€™m talking to you, itโ€™s definitely Momโ€™s fault. If Iโ€™m talking to Mom, itโ€™s definitely your fault. Ha!
