Read me on Mamapedia

There's a cute guy who sits beside you in College Algebra, which on most days, is the only reason that you even bother going to class.

The professor is standing at the front of the room talking about how something will yield such-and-such, but all you hear is "Bueller.... Bueller....".

Although solving for X to determine how many watermelons should be taken to the festival is super interesting, you're thinking about the cute guy's dimples instead.  And how his hair curls at his ears.  And how he doesn't know you're alive.

But then on Friday, the cute boy walks up to you and says, "Hi, I'm Jim. Do you want to grab a cup of coffee after class?"

Uhmmmm, YES.

But you've got to play it cool, right?  So you say, "That should be okay.  I mean... well, sure. Why not?"

But on the inside?  You're doing cartwheels and whatever hot mess Ke$ha calls dancing.

That's exactly what happened to me when Mamapedia asked me if they could publish my article.

On the outside, I was all like, "Sure, that would be okay."  But on the inside, I was KeSha in the Tick Tock video.  Hot mess central.

PhotobucketBe sure to stop by Mamapedia to read A Funny Letter To My Kids.  

So far, 99% of the comments say that I'm an idiot or a bad mother.  It looks like it's going to be a banner day. :)

  1. I loved it! And clearly you hate your son. :-) I guess your sense of humor is a bit too complex for some...

    1. I read those comments like, 'Huh? They don't get that I'm being funny?' If that was an actual heartfelt letter to my children, I woudln't have told a soul. ;)

  2. I found you through Mamapedia and I have spent a little time checking out your blog. I swear people will latch onto anything they think could be construed as controversial and run screaming through Walmart about it. The problem with free speech is that everyone else gets to talk to. For the record, they are completely wrong. I read your post about your son. I think you've got a great sense of humor. Just take all the crap other people say (who won't take the time to get to know you) with a grain of salt. Or do what you would tell your kids to do in this situation. Good luck!

    Blessings,
    Chelle

  4. WTH with those moms? Is Mamapedia normally a serious blog site? Are these moms unfamiliar with humor? I think they commented before drinking coffee. Seriously. Anyway, you are hilArious and I love you!!!!

    1. I was also surprised that more people didn't recognize the humor, but I actually understand how (if you thought I was being serious), you would be offended. I would be the first one to set me straight if I was seriously say that to me. Did you follow that? ;) But I wasn't being serious, and I thought that was pretty obvious. Maybe next time I'll post a humor warning label at the top of the post. :)

  5. *I* thought it was hilarious! A big, very mature, plbbbbt to those who are too tightly wound to get it.

    Some seriously good advice in the humor. Like if you go out looking a mess, you WILL run into someone. Ain't that the truth?! I can come from the salon with a perfect blow out, spot on make up, cute outfit and not meet a soul. Run to Target with rat hair, stained T, and no sleep? I'll run into someone from grade school visiting from out of town. argh lol

    1. It's so true, right? The worse I look, the more likely I am to run into that beautiful, skinny blonde who stole my college boyfriend. But the better I look, the more likely I am to watch HBO at home in my pajamas. ;)

    1. Thank you, Sara! I'm so glad to hear that somebody (not related to me) thought so. LOL.
