Long after the children had blissfully fallen off to sleep, I sat down at my computer and was catching up on my blog reading. I finally got over to 5 Minutes for Mom, and was watching the hoopty ploopty interviews they put together featuring some bloggers from BlogHer. Very impressive. Totally enjoyable. If you haven’t checked it out, you should.
Fiddledaddy wandered through, and asked me what I was doing. I told him about the interviews, as I was closing my computer down. I began my nightly coffee making ritual, so that in the early morning hours, I need only to punch a button so that coffee will magically appear.
And Fiddledaddy asked me, “So, how do you think you would do in one of those interviews.”
Without hesitating, I answered, “Oh, I would totally s..” Before I could finish my thought, he launched into a one-woman show starring me, with a ‘worse that could happen’ take on me being interviewed. Live.
No one does a better impression of me than my husband. Not even me.
Well. I’d love to recount verbatim his dialogue, but I’d like to keep this a family friendly blog.
People. I peed on my kitchen floor. While holding the coffee pot, suspended in midair. And that only made me laugh harder. Making the predicament much much worse.
Okay. You weary moms of small children. Let me see a show of hands. We wait far too long to go to the bathroom. Often with disastrous results. Am I right?
I mean, I will wait for HOURS because I often have an entourage attempting to follow me into the bathroom. Or if I manage to sneak away, leaving the children to their own devices, I fear the house will be ablaze when I emerge from the facilities.
So, I just don’t go. Ever.
And it’s gotten to be a really unfortunate habit.
Since impromptu peeing seems to be a theme with me this week, do you have any Depends Moments you’d like to share? C’mon, it’ll be fun. We’ll call it Tinkle Time.
