Well, I had a fairly tame New Year's Eve celebration planned. We went to Cpt Clueless (don't start on me about apostrophe's, I have no idea where they go on that one nor do I care) brothers house to hang out. My BIL had to work the next day so we were going to have pizza and play with the 2 year old nephew, Mini J. I had a new camera to test out and Mini J loves having "movies" of himself to watch.
At 5:50 I got a text that came from: #-###-###-####. It said "Happy New Year. I know I am early but i have alot of sexy people 2 text so im gettin the ugly fuckers out of the way first... Lol. Pass it on..."
Ok, this just cracked all of us up (except Mini J, he didn't get it.) My BIL immediately wanted me to forward it to him, which I did. He then sent it out to their whole softball team (more hilarity ensued.) But I had no idea who it was from. I thought about sending an equally obnoxious text back - I mean who knows who really sent it to me? Cpt Clueless takes my phone and calls the number (he has his moments) - someone answers and he rudely demands "Who is this?" Then he starts cracking up and hands me the phone, saying that it's my little sister! We talked for a few minutes, and I told her only the phone number showed up, not her name. Well, she had also sent it to our 18 year old nephew so she decided she better clear up to him where it came from.
My SIL couldn't believe that I didn't know my own sister's cell number. Well, I explained, she changes home phone, cell and email as often as I buy shoes - and that's often. About that time I have my first beer of the night (only 2 there, left the hard drinking till we got home later.)
So my mom called me a little while ago to wish me a Happy New Year. One of the first things she asks is if I'm hungover. "No!" I reply (Chasers are the shit) and she said - well your sister said you sounded pretty tipsy when she talked to you last night. I hadn't even started drinking yet and OMG, she's 30 years old and still a tattle tale!
The toughest gig in town. (aka Parent be thy name.) - We all, those of us with children, always hope to be the best parent there is. At least I think MOST of us do. But, it’s a tough gig, this parenting thing...
