I have a good friend, actually a GREAT friend that I adore daily. She’s the one I call at 7am cause my kids are already making me crazy. She’s the one I call at 4pm cause I’m doing the ‘tornado’ on the house, and I’m in a panic cause my husband is due and I’ve napped all day. She is also the one I call at 2am if my husband is late from his adventures. Hmm…before you start to think I bother that girl too much-she calls me too, but her phone calls are A LOT more hilarious!
Our typical phone conversation goes something like this:
Her: Hey, whatcha doin?
Me: Not much, what are you doing today?
Her: Well, I just got pulled over…
Her: Yea, I had to call and tell someone..
Me: What happened?
Her: Well, you know I got the new car and I’m trying to keep it clean so Jack* doesn’t flip out!
At this point I laugh because both our cars are usually full of papers, ponytail holders, stale French fries, random skittles and the occasional sweaty sock! Our husbands do NOT appreciate this!
Her: Anyway, Jack is at home with the kids, so I decided to go grocery shopping. You know, while he is home, so I can go without heathens grabbing everything off the shelves.
Her: On the way to the store, I look in the back seat and realize there is half a jelly donut back there.
Me: WHAT?!? Why would you EVER let your child have a donut in your new car?!
Her: I know! I know!
Me: Oooooooooh, Jack would have a FIT if he saw that!
Her: I KNOW! That’s why I grabbed the damn thing and threw it out the window.
Me: Is that when you got pulled over?
Her: Shortly after that. When the donut hit the cop car.
Her: Yeah, yeah, I know it’s funny….
Short time later…
Her: Are you done yet? Quit laughing, so I can tell you the rest of the story!
Me: Yea, sorry go ahead. Did you get a ticket or not?
Her: No, I apologized and offered to wash his car but I told the officer “Listen, YOU don’t understand! If my husband catches me with that donut,we are ALL in trouble” but I don’t think he grasped the concept. Then, he tried to tell me it was littering. I told him "Hello…donut…food…biodegradable!"
At this point I had to pull over because I’m laughing so hard that I’m crying and can’t see the road.
This is why, I love her! She’s real! All time!! And she can ALWAYS make me laugh!
Love Ya, E!
*I’m gonna call her husband ‘Jack’ because he doesn’t care how “cute we think we are” he doesn’t want his name splashed all over cyberspace J
