Whose mom am I?

Funny spawn story.

So for some reason, she /wants/ to go grocery shopping today. Hooray! I think to myself, so happy I'm not going to lose a body part dragging her ass out to the car.

We both hate shopping, particularly for groceries, so we split up tasks -- I make a run to one side of the store for *those* products, and she goes to the other.

When I picked up what we needed from my side, I swiftly made my way to the spawn's side. Pausing to purview the sliced ham selection - since it is her fave sammich schtuff - I notice her, standing really close to this woman who I've never seen in my life. I look back down at the ham, then up again. The spawn remains close to the woman, with the woman's back to her. That's when I decided something bizarre was up, and quickly made my way to her.

She looked up, and her eyes turned to saucers, as she hastily made her way to meet me halfway, looking like someone just stole her boyfriend in front of her.

Me: "Sweetheart, who was...?"

Spawn: "MOM, OH MY GOD, I THOUGHT THAT WOMAN WAS YOU AND I WAS JUST A'RAMBLIN' ON ABOUT WHATEVER!!!"

Waaaaaaaaaaaaahahahahahahhaha.

WTF. My own child didn't recognize the backside of me, and mistook me for some childless 20-year-old. Worse was the fact that she was running her bizarre yap with this woman's back to her. LOLOLOL. You had to be there, but her face turned blood red. I've never seen her blush before.

Classic.

I call these "Special K" moments :>

I swear, you would've peed your pants if you'd been right there with me, watching her. LOL. She even had her mouth open, hair all pulled up in bathtub hair, lookin' like an orphan. lolololol :D :D I'm just glad she didn't steal ANOTHER couple of fountain drinks (she's convinced the fountain sodas are free), and then offered up the free Sprite to that stranger. lolol :>

i pretty much well peed my pants reading about "special K moments." man, i loved that bit by e. murphy! and it's just perfect. worked out really well you didn't end up naming her... jim, was it?

Well, the Special K has always been what I've called her "soft" moments :D There are so few of them, they need a name :D :D

I can't BELIEVE you remember that I was gonna name her Jim! Do you remember why??

i thought it was because you and your significant other always called each other "jim." i think it had something to do with enjoying the confusion of everyone's faces when you called one another "jim"

ps. i have a dyslexia when it comes to typing the name "jim" i always type it "jum".

Ja, her dad and I. Do you remember why we called each /other/ Jim? LOL. It was funny when we started commonly calling each other that, and embarrassing in public :>

That's weird. Are you dyslexic??

Jun. 3rd, 2008 10:12 pm (UTC)
no. i only have that problem with the name "jim." or if i have that problem with any other words it hasn't come up. i wanna say it was because you knew a lot of people named jim, but for some reason i don't think that's it.

My hairdresser is named Jim, but he's the only one I can think of. Hmmm. Weirdness. What about Him? Does that confuse ya into Hum? :D

well you know i have no problem typing Hi! it's never hu!

ok, so it wasn't because you two knew a lot of jims... it was because you were both big star trek fans and wanted to be Kirk?

Heeheehee.... oh dear god... still, it was a childless 20 year old she thought was you, it could've been worse!

I expect the woman never realised that the talk was aimed at her.

The woman had NO clue but I'm sure she was wondering why the spawnlette was standing so close to her! lololol

Oh, I've done that the other way around. The place was crowded.In crowds I usually look over everyones' heads to pick my way through, not looking down all that much, and I started "herding" some poor stranger six year old kid who looked a little like one of mine. I'm just glad the kid's mom had a sense of humor, or I'd still be in prison somewhere five years later...

Words.

Here is Belladonna, the Lady of the Rocks,
The lady of situations.
Here is the man with three staves, and here the Wheel,
And here is the one-eyed merchant, and this card
Which is blank, is something that he carries on his back,
Which I am forbidden to see. I do not find
The Hanged Man. Fear death by water.
I see crowds of people, walking round in a ring.
Thank you. If you see dear Mrs. Equitone,
Tell her I bring the horoscope myself;

One must be so careful these days.
