I thought so.
Last month I gave the key note address at The CEU Women’s Conference. My Mom and sisters traveled down to the college with me, and boy did we have a fun time. (After the address, that is.) I was in worry, worry oh my heck why did I say I would do this mode, until it was all said and done. Literally. The topic I spoke on was Making Life An Adventure. I finished my talk off with the story I am about to share with you.
They liked it.
I thought you might enjoy it, too.
Try to still love me after you read it, okay?
Here. It is. In all it’s glory.
“Hello there. I’m wondering if you have any really small life jackets.”
To which she said…
She just stared at me.
I thought maybe she didn’t hear me, and so I ever so politely said.
“Do you have any small life jackets?”
This time she just looked around, refusing to even make eye contact with me! What is up with her, I thought.
Then she just walked away.
Holy cowgirl!She just totally ignored me. This. Is very strange.
At which point my sister in law came up to me and said…
“You. Are totally wearing your bra.”
And I was.
I totally WA-HUZ!!!!! I had on my big white bra over the top of my big hefty purple swimming suit, dear reader. I WAS WEARING MY BRA IN PUBLIC!!
Because I am so sophisticated and well organized, as I previously mentioned.
Now, you may be wondering what a girl knee deep in a pool who had just realized her embarrassing situation might do next, aren’t you? Well, what could I do…but parade myself back to the bank of lockers, remove the big white bra and toss the old girl inside with my other things.
And then hide in the corner in shame.
Cry a little.
Put a paper bag over my head.
I didn’t do any of those things, because I had small children in the pool…remember?
And it’s my life goal to be a really organized, really classy mother. Which I totally am, as you can tell by this story.
So, I just got in the pool and played with my kids.
And laughed with my sisters.
Because during times like these…that’s all there is left to do.
Happy Mother’s Day, to all of you moms out there. Thanks for joining me today! See you back here soon, more fabulous recipes lay in wait just for you and your pretty white bra. Please wear it under your clothing at all times, is the very important lesson I would like to leave with you at this time.
