More Random Crap. And a Spanish Lesson.

Standard

I suck at meetings. Not work meetings –I’m good at those, but kid-related meetings: PTA meetings, cheer meetings, band booster meetings, etc.  I usually avoid these things whenever I can, because 1) People tend to say stupid things at these meetings, 2) I have lots of opinions about the stupid things people say, and 3) I have impulse control issues. If I am forced to attend one of these types of meetings, I try to make sure I have my a couple of things with me: My phone, so I can text Hedge all my snarky comments, which helps keep them from escaping my face, and a notebook & pen, so I can look like I am studiously taking notes, when I am, in fact, drawing pornographic pictures of the parties involved.

Last week, I had a mandatory band meeting about the boy’s upcoming trip, and needless to say, I had a LOT of (badly drawn) porn when it was over. In my defense, one of the guilty parties actually said these words: “There isn’t much to do at Epcot.” Between that, the rest of the misinformation being thrown around, and the passive-aggressive packing orders tips, I’m sure you would have done the same.

Three words: Stupid Candy Crush! Why, oh WHY did I let myself get sucked into this game?  It brings out the toddler in me, too. I get pissed off when I can’t pass a level (those chocolate levels – my GOD), and I inevitably I regress to toddler logic. It usually starts with “It’s not faaaaaaaiiiiir.” And when that gets me nowhere, I go with the always helpful, “This is STUPID!” Then I swear I’m done with it, and I will never play again. And then a few hours later, I’m Level 86’s bitch again.

And speaking of Candy Crush, I recently said something about it to my family & my husband asked “What’s Candy Crush?” to which my son replied, “Some game everybody’s mother is addicted to.” Sigh. He’s not even wrong.

Hedge and I are considering going to see REO Speedwagon & Styx. Unfortunately, they are bringing Ted Nugent with them. We will probably bring some candy bars to eat during our protest during his set. Because we far prefer nougat to Nugent.

Also – the freaking raven was back the other day. I’m getting nervous.

Let’s end with this delightful exchange:

My 4 year old cousin to his brand new sister: “Hey, Mr. Dick!”

His mom: “What did you call her?”

4 yr old: “Mr. Dick. It’s the Spanish word for cutie pie.”

His mom: “Um…OK. But maybe we should just stick to cutie pie.”

Forty-sdjhfkjsdhfkjsdh year old mom of 2 - a 18 year old boy and a 11 year old girl. I love them very much, but they drive me crazy. I'm married and work full-time. I'm not sure which of these is the most exhausting, but probably the husband. I'm opinionated. I'm outspoken. I'm loud. I'm an over-sharer. I think Tom Cruise is a jackass. I like to say jackass. I like to swear, period. Fuckers. I love to read. I struggle with my weight. I love my job. I dress my pets up and ridicule them regularly. I am not afraid to cut my hair and I don't understand people who are. I hate getting old. I love to laugh. Make me laugh, OK?

  1. Your texts to me during such meetings are the texts that get me through work meetings the following day. We need to publish a book of our texts. I think it would be something for the world – let us help you. This would include your pornographic drawings. A best seller.

  2. And I prefer chocolate covered poo to Nugent and his insane ramblings….we’re walking out during his set and stuffing our faces with alcohol while calling everyone Mr. Dick.
