I’m trying something new…

Posted on

Found Friday fragments over at Half past kissin’ time and decided to give it a go myself…

— I’m smaller than you’re average mom. Seriously, on the height charts I’m the size of a third grade boy, but I have good posture and carry my weight well. It’s hardly noticeable (you can stop laughing now). Earlier this week there was a knock at the door.

Obnoxious perky college student: Oh! Hi! is your mom home?!

Unamused me: I am the mom

OPCS: Right on! *high five, clap, little jump* Well, have you ever heard of the BBC…

She was selling magazines. I never think quick on my toes. I should have said “No, I’m not allowed to talk to strangers” and shut the door.

— On the way to the library, I heard a giggle from the back seat. I turn to see Simeon had opened and dumped his entire bowl of snack cereal on his head. Seriously?! I pretended to be mad, but I was laughing on the inside.

— Leo comes home in approx. 9 hours. He’s been gone approx. 73 hours. 48 hours. is as long as I can stand him being gone. I can NOT wait until he gets home. *note it took approx 3.5 hours for me to do all that math.

— Simeon has visitation today. This should really be saved for a whole post. Look for more on this later.

— I got a little misty eyed at The Office wedding last night. Now I’m embarrassed.

— When I was a kid, I would take my mom’s razor in the bathtub, and shave the thinnest layer of skin off my thumbs. It felt daring and dangerous. I have no idea what made me remember that.

Well, those weren’t very interesting. I’ll try it again next week. I’m sure there’s better fodder in my life Β than this, I just have to keep my eyes and ears open. How ’bout you give it a try?

  1. Don’t worry about being interesting. We’re just glad you joined the party. πŸ™‚

  2. I never had the problem of being mistaken for a kid… even when I was one *L*

  3. Fun fragments! Welcome to the party! πŸ™‚

    Heh, next time you’ll know when someone wants to speak to ‘your mom’ that you should jut pretend you’re the kid to get rid of them… πŸ˜‰

    It’s hard to keep a straight face and pretend to be mad when a kid does something they’re not supposed to, but it’s too funny… πŸ™‚

    You shaved SKIN off your thumbs with your mom’s razor? I remember ‘borrowing’ my dad’s razor once before I was ‘allowed’ to shave my legs…still have the nice scar where I nicked a nice chunk of skin on my shin in my hurry to be secretive… πŸ™‚

    Happy FF! πŸ™‚

  4. That is too funny about the height thing. My hubby always feels so self conscious because he’s a good bit shorter than I am…I avoid wearing heels around him though lol. I used to know a teacher who was about the height my 10 yr. old son is now…but she was awesome!

  5. Sounds goofy, maybe, but I really loved the fragment about using your mom’s razor to shave your thumbs. I think maybe it’s because we can all remember doing something with our mom’s stuff at one time or another. I can’t really articulate why the way I want to, but I loved that fragment.

    I like your writing style and personality. Thanks for joining in this week.

  6. Oh my gosh, the wedding! So good! Jim cutting his tie made me so happy!! Although I’m embarrassed to admit I didn’t know the Chris Brown song or the Youtube reference, so I had to look them both up.
