tag

oh thanx Mel for the tag!
OKAY......here goes.......but it shall stop with me...because all the people i know have already been tagged!
1. i primarily love to LAUGH.......morning, noon, evening and anywhere in between......i find the greatest strength and source of hilarious entertainment in the form of the little "munchkin" variety.....aka......CHILDREN!......they absolutely crack me up and furthermore their intense honesty is what really makes it WORK! i must admit that it is often fun just to "urge" them to reveal even a little "more" hilarity than they would have otherwise delivered.....this often leads to much in the way of entertainment and sometimes i have to keep it a secret.....
2. well, it is a no brainer........an awfully HUGE part of my life is loving my 4 grandkids......Hope, Carter, Addie and Ava.......they are often "involved" in the aforementioned info, stated above
3.i will reveal some of my pet peeves and dislikes.........watch out......this will tick some of you off!
i am unbelievably annoyed by the music on everyone's blog!....even if i individually love the song or the singer......it annoys me to death while trying to read someone's post!
4. i will never never never understand why clothing companies have put those horrid, dagnabit, pesky labels in our clothing, behind our neck, and to make it worse.....they use fibers from steele, (i am sure)....that leave deadly rashes and scratches beyond all medical help!.....and what's more...........to get them out........you must rip a HOLE in your shirt........and who on God's green earth could EVER be strong enuf to even be able to pull them out anyway??? honestly......this is a pet peeve that has been festering in me for many many years, and i have been alive for a very very long time
5.okay....it is my "dream" to have 12 or more comments on a post.......ahhhhhhhhhh.......what a dream!
6. and here is a confession like Heidi is prone to give these days........on the FIRST EASTER SUNDAY at Vinings Lake......(where our son is the pastor and where we attend, for those of you who don't know me very well....IF there really are any other people than my own faithful followers, albeit few faithful followers........).......i digress.......anyway.......i was an altar counselor in those "early" days.......and i was in line with others, ready to counsel anyone if needed.....which meant i had to be up front, in view of the whole church, which i kind of am paranoid about anyway, ......and thankfully everything went fine and the service ended etc. etc.........about 10 minutes AFTER the service........i was sitting in a chair.......and looked down to the floor for my purse......and saw this black PILE of something around my feet........not being able to assess it fast enough i was quite alarmed at what in the world it could be.......when suddenly i realized it was my half-slip!!!.........it must have silently, shimmered down and fell right off me when i had stood up, and then sat down again.!! i was horrified!!!.........well yes........i had noticed the elastic slightly extra stretchy that morning, but did not give a second thought........and my next horrified thought was........oh my word........WHAT IF it had fallen off while i was UP FRONT in the counseling line???........here i am, the pastor's mother.......and my slip would fall off in front of the church, on Easter Sunday.........what's more the FIRST Easter Sunday????...........oh thank you Lord for your great MERCY!
btw........i just kind of "coughed" leaned down, full body lean down, that is.....and scooped the slip into my hands and thrust that sucker into my purse as fast as i could........i sure hope NO one saw me

Don't feel bad about the slip. Your son has you beat when his cell phone goes off during his sermon. I think it was an Easter service but I am not sure.

Heidi Zawisza said...

I saw it. And so did everyone sitting beside me.We just pretended that we didn't.........................................Ha!ha! JK!!!!!

Honey, the slip on the floor is great.....that means you are so skinny you cant even keep your underthings up!!! I pray for the day my slip falls down -ummm, that is if I owned a slip - here in TN, we prefer to go slipless (now if my girdle falls down, I will shout for joy!!!)

oh how i wish that little scenario were the truth, Bethanne....no, sadly the truth is...i was wearing OLD undergarments, with OLD elastic on an OLD woman.....too senile to think the dagnabit elastic would finally POP and the whole thing fall off.....but hey, i like YOUR story.....so yeah...that's my new story...and i'm stickin to it!

Two thoughts:
1. I don't carry a purse but note to self do not wear a slip :)
2.Didn't your mother teach you better? What if something had happened and they had to call an ambulance and rush you to the hospital and you were unable to undress yourself and someone had to help you oh and Larry wasn't there and the doctor was male and hot and then what if he has to take your clothes off and he had seen that your slip was not nice and new? :P I should write a book and call it "My mom's mind".
