Thank Goodness We Do Not Believe in Karma…
…..but it would explain why some of the most ridiculous things happen to me.
So yesterday afternoon I was taking my oldest son to baseball practice. I had him, Boy 2, and The Girl in the car with me. On the way to the field, I decided I could not live one more second without a bag of sour gummy worms. I’m telling y’all, I’m obsessed. Those things are so stinkin‘ good and I’m literally having to fight my sin nature not to eat a whole bag every day. Will you still love me if I tell you I had a Romans 7 breakdown? (BTW, being the gummy worm connoisseur that I am, I feel obligated to let you know these are not as good as these.)
Boy 2 loves to act like a nerdy dork for fun so before I ran in the store he said (in his best Pee Wee Herman voice), “Mom, would you please buy me some moist towelettes?” And because sarcasm is a love language in our house, I said, “You big sissy! What in the world does a boy need with a ‘moist towelette’? If you get your wittle, bitty hands dirty at the ball field we’ll spray you down with the water hose. Or swish them around in the toilet, whichever is closer.” We all laughed and I ran in to get my gummy worms.
While at the checkout I saw a man whose daughter comes to our church. I asked how she was, he told me she was out in the car, so I made a point to wave at her as I was leaving.
Okay, picture this. There was a car in between mine and hers and somehow when I waved my meshy-woven, beaded bracelet got caught in this car’s antenna. I don’t mean just a little caught. I mean my arm was fully stretched in the air, completely entangled, and would not come down. I started waving with my other arm hoping they won’t notice but yeah, whatever. The girl and her new step mom were laughing at me. My own kids were laughing at me. Somehow I managed to wrangle loose without breaking the antenna clean off this poor, unsuspecting vehicle. The car may have been safe, but my ego was SO not.
I finally got in the car and Boy 2 said, “Mom, you ever heard of karma? I guess you should have gotten me those moist towelettes.”
Ooooooh. Good one.
Clearly my padawan has been paying attention in class.
And my dear future daughter-in-law’s mom – if you are out there?
I apologize in advance.
You gotta love ’em, don’t you? These are the things great stories are made from.
I can so see that picture! Laughing out loud!!!! Hey I see you’ve changed the “I AM” Bible study logo! I have to get back into that! I have to finish what I started! BTW Thanks for doing that study! What I have done has been a blessing!
This is funny. But girl, I already have a list of apologies for each of my boys to just hand over before they say “I do” so they can never come back and say, “but you never told me!”
MY in-laws joke when I married hubby was, “Well L we did the best we could, now it is your turn to raise him.” Boy were they not kidding, heehehe =)
I mean to hand over to each of my boys future wives…(not enough coffee yet…)
LOL That’s too funny! And it is something that would so happen to me! I’m like that…I’m the big klutz, the one who gets herself stuck in weird places!
Sugar trumps karma!
SO funny! Thanks for that laugh :)
You are just too stinkin’ funny! Thanks for the laugh!
Too funny, and definitely something I would do (except I don’t wear bracelets). Be grateful your son didn’t have a camera. =)
I could picture the whole thing!! Aww nothing like the good love language of sarcasm. No wonder we get along so great!! :)
Lisa, I’m too old to be laughing this hard.
You’ve got to stop those stunts of yours.
This is HILARIOUS!!!!
Oh, and no need to apologize. My son-in-law(whichever one of the three) will fit in just fine in this family! :))
I’m also glad you linked the word padawan to the definition. I would’ve never figured that one out! HA!
You are too cute! I loved the message to the future daughter-in-laws! You are making me hungry! I’m trying to stay away from sweets for a little while, but am really having a hard time tonight! Maybe we should make them the theme candy for the Siesta Fiesta??
Oh, so that explains my life! If I believed in karma!
BTW which store did you say you stopped at? I want to see if they caught that whole episode on tape. LOL.
As you would probably say if it happened to me “ya’ll are too stinking funny” Oh that would so be me that got stuck, however I must admit I’m horrible about laughin at these things too.
Thanks for sharing, you’re so real and so great.
Very Funny! Sounds all to familiar to some of the things that happen to me!
HEHE that is so funny!
BTW: I too love gummy worms and I have found the best gummy worms are the CVS brand – they are so good
I was addicted to them forever until I noticed my pants were getting a bit tight LOL
Enjoy your day & don’t go roping any more car antennaes mkay!
Oh yeah! Score one for boy number 2! That sounds just like something that would happen to me. I mouth off some perfectly timed comeback(in love, of course) then walk into a wall, slam hand in car door, or something like that!…maybe it IS karma
I’ve got to start using the bathroom BEFORE I read your blog!
You crack me up, friend!
Boy! You must have had some big, enthusiastic wave to be able to reach out and snag a car antenna as you passed by :) That was so funny! Sorry, though, about your poor, wounded ego. You and Lucy (Lucille Ball) would have made a great pair.
Thanks, for the laugh.
That is something that would SO happen to me… if only I were a little taller. ;o)
LOL! I am laughing so hard right now. That is totally a “me” moment, except I may have ended up with both hand caught. Thanks for sharing. (I wondered on your blog from merriedays, i am her youngest daughter, the blogless one he he he)
