This past weekend, the PSIL (pseudo sister in law) and I decided to take the kids to Como. Our reasons were simple: It was free, the kids LOVE animals, and it was a heck of a lot more entertaining to walk around the zoo than sit at home and break up never ending fights between little man and Bop(my niece). Before we left, PSIL received a phone call from a lady she refers to as Grandma (note: she is not related to Grandma. Rather, this lady was her neighbor's mother when PSIL was little. Not that it matters, but Grandma is about 68-ish). Grandma wanted to take Bop to the zoo..and instead of telling PSIL telling her we already had plans, she invited Grandma & Co. to join us. Did I mention that I am totally PMS-ing right now?
For about forty five minutes PSIL, myself and the kids walked around the zoo. It was enjoyable. I was managing to keep myself collected while the crowds of people swarmed. Then PSIL got the call. Grandma & Co. had arrived at the zoo.
Now, I'm not SUPER shallow. I try my best not to be judgemental. Let me just say for the record there was a TON of EXTREMELY inappropriate spandex involved with Grandma & Co. They were the people I would normally catch out in public and think to myself "seriously, what were they thinking!"
My mood spontaneously shifted from "I'm surviving the zoo" to "Get me the hell out of here!"
Needless to say, I might politely decline another trip out with Grandma & Co. PMS or not...it was still too much for me to handle...and now, I've just received a one way ticket to hell, courtesy of my horrible thoughts!
I'm not sure if you've ever heard of a blog Pay it Forward...but I have reluctantly decided to participate (especially since I intend on entering EVERY contest possible because I am a whore for free stuff!!). Here's how you're going to play my "contest".
First: leave a comment about a time you've noticed someone completely inappropriate in public. If that's too much to handle, just leave a comment saying hi.
Second: the contest ends on Friday, July 4th at noon my time (central time). I will use a random number generator to pick the winner....a package of surprises will be mailed out.
FIY: if you DO win you need to post and participate in a pay it forward contest of your own!!! Yeah, that's right bizzo's...it's time to Pay it Forward...just like that
