#Social Clutz Loveable Spaz

I told you people not to let me out in public. Didn’t I say that? Therefore, don’t be surprised when I tell you the following is in fact, real, and not made up or embellished for blog’s sake. I have witnesses.

Hi. I’m a spaz.


  1. ROFLMAO! That is a GREAT story. (and I am sure she was laughing in a good way)

  2. um, yeah, don’t know what to say here; afraid to say anything!  maybe you’re preggo and all your brain cells are too busy working elsewhere to fire correctly? 
    At least you can say you had a funny weekend!
    Next time you say something like that, right after, you can say that you are training to be a comedian and ask them how that sounded.

  3. LMAO!!!  Too funny!  Reminds me of last weekend when we were at the beach and I had picked up Grace(she almost 4, btw), she started patting my chest and said, very loudly, “I love your boobies, Mommy!”  Yup, I almost died, right there.

    Add us to the white trash list.

  4. ROFLMAO! I totally heart you for thinking Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae ARE REAL PEOPLE. I’m laughing with you, not at you…really. This comes from a woman who couldn’t remember where she put her husband’s wallet after we arrived at the pool yesterday about two minutes after he had handed it to me. My two children have completely fried my short-term memory. At least I like to blame them for it because it’s so darn convenient.

  5. I have *so* got to meet you sometime.  If you’re like that around strangers, you’ve got to be even more fun when you sorta know the person.  wink

    Fwiw, when ds1 was about 1.5 (and still nursing) I had him in the sling in line at Albertson’s.  People were taking their sweet time.  All of a sudden, ds1 yells out “Boobs! Boobs! Boobs!” while frantically clawing at my shirt - he was thirsty/hungry.  The checker hadn’t even started ringing us up yet, and there were five people in line behind me.  At least he knows what boobs are for, I suppose.

  6. I thought Freddie Mac was either a singer or a TV star. You have to admit, they are rather odd names!

    And I’m sure she was laughing in a good way!

  7. What gives?! Ebby Halliday had me crazy the same way. “My Mom’s friends…” bwahahahaaaaaa…Lily will one day make the same mistake when hearing of her own ” Mommy’s friends” Jose Cuervo, Jack Daniels, Jameson, oh the list goes on and on…

  8. Oh, Anne, totally. Jack? My good buddy Jack Danielles? Yup! Love him.

  9. hehehe - thanks for the laugh (with you, not at you). ok, kinda at you… but in a good way.

  10. Oh yeah, I can totally relate.  Only my affliction is that I have this voice that carries REALLY WELL and on top of that, I have this weird inability to talk softly (no matter how hard I try).  You know, like when I see someone or something that I just HAVE to comment on (for example, when Hubbins and I are walking downtown and we see some teenage girl with a skirt on that is so short I can see her pubic hair and a shirt that is so tight I could read her tits like Braille), and I say (in a voice that sounds quiet TO ME) “Nice look, Britney!”  Or when we are at the store and I see a kid that is going ballistic on its mom and she is either ignoring it or just letting it run rampant and I say “That’s a good argument for birth control” and she shoots me an evil look.

    And that’s not even when I’m drinking. 

    If I had been with you out there in public, I’d have laughed my butt off (in a totally supportive way).  You need to move to my town so we can hang out!  smile

  11. Okay, and I had to add (after reading the links to back posts you offered up in this post… thank you, by the way)—that I TOTALLY understand and suffer from the slug trail!  I’ve never had the guts to discuss it with anyone, but somehow I feel I can post it on the internet to you!  Ha Ha!  I won’t even talk to my gyney about it because I absolutely DETEST the word “discharge.”  It’s just so gross.  Can’t they think of a different word?  Like, say…. maybe… slug trail?????  smile
