A Missed Opportunity to Mortify My Son (Oops!)

My son is taking quarterly exams all week. He’s in his first year of high school. Which, in these (backwards) parts, means he’s only in 8th grade. He attends school with boys his age as well as with up to 18 and 19-year-old MEN. When I went to pick him up today, he ran a little late so I passed the time by checking in with my friend, Virginia.

Step lively in the future, Dean. Because next time, I’m bringing bunny slippers and cold cream in the car with me. And possibly a megaphone.



I make myself laugh. Which is a good thing because I’m not sure if I actually do that for anyone else. Nonetheless, I shared the text screen captures with a few friends and family members who recommended I post them here. And my brother is holding me to it for next time. He’s daring me.


Game on, Uncle Jeff.

  1. I would hate if mother did this, and usually hated my mom for doing anything embarrassing if she was at my school. So inside I’m thinking like your son and thanking God you didn’t do it. However, the other side is thinking you should have done it! Lol

  2. Yeah see around here they KNOW me I would do it.. cause I am just that evil lol..

  3. Just remember – as your son absorbs these lessons, one day he may use what he learned on you.


  4. Love it. I need to remember this when Tuck is of that age. So…I’ll need…slippers, no bra, pajama pants with bright colors and curlers in my hair. I can’t wait!! 🙂

  5. I have this tucked away in my brain! LOVE IT! This might be something I would have done in the later years- just sayin’:)
