A Slight Mishap

Yesterday found us at the public library, searching for that elusive best book to read......well, at least something to keep certain people occupied and quiet. Whatever floats your boat.

As I was scanning the shelves, I looked up and saw something amazing. Something I truly have never seen with my eyes before, yet have heard about.

What was it?

Toilet paper hanging out of the back of a skirt.


You know, the kind of people you see on random Wal-Mart photos, Facebook pics, people you can giggle at and say, "Whew, glad that's not me."

Wait, hold on here.....

Upon further reflection, I realized the skirt looked familiar. Uh oh.

The skirt looked familiar because I've washed it before. Many times.

Oh heavens.

The toilet paper dangling from the skirt belonged to my own child.

And the sad thing is, I hadn't noticed until this point.

And it was 4pm.

Today found us driving an hour north, in the early morning, with no air conditioning, in off and on rain, to help Katie move into her new apartment. Just how I want to spend a hot Saturday......but, we have to be nice parents sometimes, you know.

Well, within ten minutes of leaving home, all we heard was, "How much longer?", "Are we there yet?" even though certain little girls have been to see Katie before and know about the drive. I mean heavens, it's only an hour.

So Daddy told them about a wonderful new game called Boogers. Yep, you read that right.

How does one play, you may ask?

Stare intently out your window at all the passing vehicles. Find the people inside said vehicle. Look to see if their fingers are anywhere near their nose, in the nose, etc. If the fingers are near a nose, you get to yell, "Boogers!" and claim points.

One point for kids, five points for dads, and ten points for moms. After all, moms don't do that kind of thing.

Guess what I heard for the next forty minutes?

Yep, "Boogers!" over and over again.

I never knew so many people in Atlanta picked their noses.
