50 Shades Of Stupid-Week 5

This is probably a pretty normal thing to most people.
Not to say that you are all stupid, but to say that we all do this.
When you are in the middle of an arugument,
or perhaps like me, you are in the middle of scolding your kids...
and you mess up what you are trying to say with so much emotion.
Then, of course either they start laughing at you,
or you start laughing at yourself.
So instead of making your point, you just wasted a lot of breath.
This morning Leila was whining,
and it's pretty simple, I said the obvious thing.
"Leila, Lock it off!"
Yes, thank you ladies and gentlemen, I'll be here all week.

Remember when you were in high school and all you wanted to do
was to be cool with your cool new car?
Well, I don't. Because my laziness caused me to wait until I was 18
years old and out of high school to get my license and my brown 1988 Chrysler LeBaron.
I was thankful for a car, but it wasn't the cutest thing.
At least it went with the grunge look I was going for in the mid 90's.
So I was 18-19 ish years old, right? I wanna be cool.
I wanna fit in with my friends at work since I was out of school.
But the problem was that I had this problem with my alternator.
It would work and not worked as it pleased.
Well, friday night came. I was working at Ponderosa at the time.
The uniform consisted of a snazzy green "cap", tan pleated "slacks"
and a peach or blue chambray----heyyyyyy! A Chambray!
That's in style right?

Ok, really it was just a button up dockers type uniform work shirt.
So, I'm driving home from work in my outfit,
which let's face it had all the mystery in the world.
I had my 1988 Chrysler LeBaron.
I was "cruising" the strip, which in my city is Hwy 100.
This is (uh, was) where all the kids cruise and hang out on the weekends.
I start to pull up at a stop light.
Naturally, my alternator gives out. I swear sometimes, God is cracking up.
This was before cell phones obviously, and Lord knows I wasn't cool enough
to have a pager.
So I get out of my car, and flag down the nearest car of "fine" guys that were
cruising the strip. Remember that? He is sooooo fine! Or is it just me?
Because I am so old?
They were so nice and kind and helped my push said Brown Chrysler Lebaron off of the 
middle of the "cruising" strip. I wouldn't want to get in the way of all the cruising fun.
Yes, thank you. If you are reading this, I am the girl with the tan slacks and green cap
who flagged you down in my brown car as you were trying to pick up chicks.
But, thanks for your help anyways. 
Really it was the ploy of a lonely 19 year old who wanted a boyfriend.

Well, this Sunday I was convinced when I left the house that church started at 9:00. About five minutes down the road I remembered that it started at 9:30...but I decided it was too late to turn back. I showed up at church 40 minutes early, which I found hilarious...but I haven't had the time or inclination to turn it into a blog post yet. :P

Brooke @ Covered in Grace said...

Haha!! Love it.
Girl... I still say "soooo fiiine!"

And I love LOCK it off. It sounds legit. It's a mix of Lock it up and Knock it off.

Jana Faith said...

Um, yeah... I TOTALLY remember "fine"! If he was reeeeeally fine... he was 'foiiiiine'. And ugh. We've all been there because in spite of my fortunately, quite awesome 1970 VW bug, it was quite unreliable. At least someone helped, right?
