meeting new friends

Let’s review what just occurred to me, but first a quick refresher:

I work from home. I’ve let go of most personal hygiene habits anytime before 4pm. My diet is crap and needs improvement. I’ve got several windows open in the house today so it’s a bit chilly in here. My office looks out onto the front yard of which anyone needs to pass by on their way to the front door. We’ve recently moved and I’m trying desperately to find new friends. Ideally moms in the neighborhood that like to drink enjoy a mommy’s night now & again.

So where to start….It’s about lunch time so I decide I’m going to heat up the leftover lo mein. I realize it’s about a week old, ponder whether I’m going to vomit profusely or die upon eating it but throw it in the microwave regardless. While it’s heating up, I realize it’s a bit chilly so I wrap a blanket around my waist which falls to my feet. Kinda like a towel after a shower except on the lower half of my body.

I quickly eat the lo mein while standing in the kitchen. Death does not instantly find me, but I do decide I’m still hungry and an oversized bowl of mint chocolate chip ice cream will do my body good. Hell, I’ve got a blanket wrapped around my lower half so bring it on cold food.

I take my yummy bowl of ice cream and blanket wrapped body on a walk from the kitchen to my office at which time I see a girl walking up my sidewalk with flyers. Oh great, someone leaving something at my door. The girl then knocks to which I think “okay, I’ll grab what she hands me and quickly move on.”

So I proceed to carry my overloaded bowl of ice cream and blanket wrapped body to the front door, open it (remember I’ve not showered yet today nor am I wearing a hat or a scarf. Think Billy Idol! To make me even more attractive, there is no bra in this story!)

OH SHIT! YOU’RE NOT A GIRL. YOU’RE THE MOM THAT I’VE MET AT THE POOL A COUPLE OF TIMES & YOU’RE HANDING OUT FLYERS FOR A NEIGHBORHOOD PARTY NEXT WEEKEND & WE ARE ABOUT TO HAVE A CONVERSATION!!! FUCK

We started chatting and I start a conversation in my head: Well aren’t you just all cute in your green tank top, short shorts and sleek brown hair! Why can’t I look like this when I haven’t showered? Do you like mint chocolate chip ice cream? Would you like one of my 7 scoops? It’s kinda chilly out here today, want a blanket? I just happen to have one on my body. Sorry, no bra. But there’s a whole pile of dirty ones upstairs so I could go grab both of us one!!

ARE YOU KIDDING ME THIS IS HAPPENING RIGHT NOW?

During our longer than I expected conversation, which I welcomed but couldn’t stop the voices in my head, I learned her son & my son are part of a shared classroom/team teaching set up at school this year and we are scrimmaging her son’s football team tonight.

I need to go get my ass in the shower as I need to clean up for tonight’s second showing of my HOTT self! Just as soon as I stop laughing.

    1. Oh yeh! I walked up to her and first words outta my mouth “sorry you had to see me as a fat, lazy slob earlier today.” She sorta stumbled with a few words and said No, I probably shouldn’t have stopped by and I said Oh no you better. Anytime you want.

      I think we are all good. However, I am afraid to eat ice cream and wear a blanket today. I am dressed with scarf on my head. I am not clean. But I will hide that til shower time!

  1. So, the other day, our power went out and I was sitting in the living room nursing the baby and for some reason I was not wearing a nursing friendly shirt. I decided to take it off, so I was essentially sitting in the living room without a shirt on. One of the neighbors walks up our walk to “check on us”. I fully anticipated that he would just leave if I didn’t answer the door. But no, he cupped his hands to his eyes and started peering in the windows. Of course our blinds were open. Imagine my shock. I tore the baby off my nipple and threw on my shirt as fast as humanly possible. And then went and answered his continuing knocking with my shirt all askew. “Yes, our power is out too. Yes, we are fine. Thank you, neighbor.”

And then you said...
