Something

Something I didn’t expect to hear: “…and that’s how my brother got that fungus on his butt.” 

Something embarrassing: Samantha’s friends were over. “Ice Ice Baby” came on over our speakers and I thought, (thinking = my first mistake) I should show them how well I can do ‘The Running Man’ – I bet they will see how cool I am and suddenly want to tell me stuff, and desire to have all their future gatherings at Samantha’s house because she is the one with the cool mom.  Here's an update on that: EPIC FAIL.

 
Something funny: Drew was gearing up for a presentation at school and he was a little nervous about it. I tried to pump him up and give him encouragement, after which he raised his eyebrows in mock appreciation and said, “Wow Mom. That was a really moving speech.”

 
Something…(I’m not sure what this is, but I don’t think it’s very positive): While lunching with some friends we began discussing a family while inserting all kinds of favorable adjectives. It piqued my curiosity (never a good sign) so I turned to Samantha and asked, “What kind of adjectives would you use to describe OUR family?” She looked up to the ceiling, pursed her lips and contemplated, “Uhhh…we’re…’special’.”

 
Something lame
  • Nonfat yogurt.
  • “Whole Grain” Fruity Pebbles.
  • Asking, “Hey, has anyone seen my iPod?” and then finding it in my washing machine.
  • Kevin Costner. (Why is he a famous actor? If I had known I could be rich for being boring I would have called him for some pointers years ago. I’m pretty sure it’s too late now.)
  • Bruce Jenner marrying into the Kardashians.
Something not lame: Sonic Happy Hour. Only six more hours until two o’clock.

LOL! We were just talking about Kevin Costner's "lameness" the other day! He is EXACTLY the same in every roll he does.

BTW, you just crack me up

Stefani said...

lol... that should be "role" - maybe he's lame at rolls too;)

Heather said...

So the running man isn't your specialty... they'll divulge all their secrets when they learn about your parallel parking skills!

Whole grain fruity pebbles?? I'm out on that, sounds nasty from the get-go.

I can do a pretty mean running man. Only problem is that a lot more things jiggle now than they did in the 80s.

Poor, poor Samantha. (Seems I've been leaving that as a comment a lot lately. HMMM)

How's the IPod?

Kristin said...

as far as the "lameness" goes hate to tell ya but, it gets worse the older your kids get.
Makaila did the same thing to her IPod and it didn't survive! We buried it in plastic if that helps.

Well, you're on MY cool mom list. I can't do the running man.

Thanks for reminding me.

I enjoy your "specialness"

Lisa said...

I'm going to need you to go ahead and post a video of you doing the running man on your blog. I need that to get me through to Sonic Happy Hour. . .

rocslinger said...

Special, that's what I heard in third grade. I've moved way past special. My family, I don't know. Ask Sam Sam I'm curious to know the word she would use for us?

Vern said...

Lisa: You wish!

Paige said...

I'd like to see your running man.

Meg said...

Sonic??? Is it the Ice??

I so agree over the Kevin Costner thing! Now he is making money off of the oil spill selling his invention. Something crazy...Hollywood!
