Five Question Friday

March 26, 2010

My Little LifeWell, it’s time again to answer five pretty random questions.  If you haven’t, you should go over there and link up with Mama M.   If you do, let me know, I’d love to check out your most embarrassing moment.  Might make me feel better about myself.

1. Did you pass your driver’s test on the first try?
Heck no, or my second, or my third.  It took me six times to get my license.  We’d go once a week, and they’d make me wait a week or two before I could come take it again.  On my last try, my dad told the kind folks at the DMV that he thought they should put us on the payroll.  After all, we were there as much as they were. 
I went on to have a decade of awful driving.  I was constantly getting stopped for speeding.  Had accident upon accident. 
Then, I had children.  And I became SAFETY GIRL.  Instead of a cape, I wear a seatbelt.  And instead of driving the Batmobile.  It’s a very safe Chrysler Pacifica, seated with booster seats. 

2. What is your most embarrassing moment?
I’ve got more than my fair share. 
For this story to make sense, you’d have to know that I’m pretty low maintainance.  And that I have very straight hair.  My husband and I were getting ready for a funeral.  I was in the bathroom doing my hair and decided to curl it.  This is WAY unusual for me.  I plugged in the curling iron and hooked it over the cabinet door.  The cabinet was right under the sink.  I wandered off.  There is NEVER a curling iron plugged in, anywhere in our house.
My husband was getting ready too, and had just bathed.  He was standing in front of the sink, naked as a jaybird. 
The next thing I know, there are screams, like, girl screams, coming from the bathroom.  My naked husband is lying on the floor, thrashing as if in the throes of a seizure.  I, for the life of me, couldn’t figure out what was wrong with him.  Once the screaming subsided, he rolled over, still clutching his blistered turtle.(That’s what we call the “business” around our house) 
We went on to the funeral, and he spent the next few days walking very gingerly, crying in his sleep and what not. 
This is not the embarrassing part. 
The part of this story that makes me embarrassed, is that Sunday at church, our oldest, who was our only at the time, must have been about 4 was chatting away at our minister and a few of the other members of the congregation.  He was one of the only kids in our small church, so he got lots of attention.  By the time I arrived on the scene, everyone was wiping their eyes.  They had laughed until they’d cried.  My dear Adam told the burnt turtle story.  And Wayne was still walking funny. 
My kids just have no filters. 

3. What TV show would you like to be on- Oprah, Biggest Loser, or What Not to Wear?
What Not to Wear.  I seriously need some help.  Since moving to the country, I’ve really let myself slide.

4. Would you ever get plastic surgery and what kind?
Yep!  I’m dying for a tummy tuck.  And the girls wouldn’t mind a lift either.  I’d get my skin resurfaced or whatever they call it.  Yep!  I’d love it!
5. What are your favorite jeans to wear?
I love trouser cut jeans from Ann Taylor LOFT.  They are my favorites.
I can’t wait to hear your most embarrassing moment!

    I am cracking up at the burnt turtle story! Hilarious!

    I’d also love to be on What Not to Wear-I’ve told my family that after I lose the baby weight, they all need to nominate me, because I have no style whatsoever (not to mention no budget for clothes!)

      I’ve never had much in the style department. I’m a mannequin shopper. If it all goes together on the mannequin, I buy it. Other than that, I’m kind of clueless.
      My baby is almost five and I still haven’t lost the baby weight! EEEEk!

    Happy Friday!

      It’s my favorite store! I buy most of my clothes there, because they seem to cater to short, short waisted, big busted, slightly overweight women. (That’s what they want on their bio, don’t you think?) lol

    Since I don’t do the blog hops, I thought I’d favor you with an embarassing story on here. I went to my son’s school for a conference last year. First we stopped by Burger King to eat. As I was leaving Burger King, I noticed quite a few people looking at me. I had no idea why. But I was hurrying to get to the conference, so I dismissed it. At the school I walked through the parking lot, into the office…trailing my husband. Got a few more looks. We met with the teacher, and she ushered us into her office. I was the first one to go in. Suddenly my husband grabbed me and bumped into the back of me. “Amy!,” he said, “The back of your pants are ripped!” I’m talking the ENTIRE back of my pants was torn wide open. You could see the backs of my legs (not pretty) and the entire back of my panties. I sat down and went on with the conference anyways, and my husband escorted me outside, covering my behind. Now, my question is, why didn’t anyone say anything? Even at the school, no one notified me! I would notify someone if I saw that. So, there you have it. One of my (many, many, many) embarassing moments.

      Love it! Don’t you love a husband that will literally have your back? lol

    Oh my goodness!!!! I can’t stop laughing about the blistered turtle!! This should be a warning for men all over!!!

    • March 27, 2010 6:33 am

      I haven’t curled my hair since! 🙂 Yet another excuse to let the grooming go!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog.
    I’m all for the tummy tuck but, have to wait because we may have one more baby first.

    The burnt turtle story made me laugh out loud, but what I think is even funnier is that you created a tag for it on your post. That is hysterical.

    • March 27, 2010 6:34 am

      I’m such a dork! I didn’t even log in that I’d done that until you pointed it out! I’m such a newbie, I’m not even sure what tags are for! lol

    I’m dying laughing over here. Kids!! One time we were at Subway and my daughter went in to use the bathroom. It happened to be that time of the month for me…the first time since having L-boy…so about 15 months. When S-girl saw it she was quite I explained it to her. Well…we went back out to wait in line with my husband and she blurted out as loud as possible. “DAD…MOMMY’S BLEEDIN’ “!!!
