Another Embarrassing Story

June 9, 2015






It's June and school is almost over, thank goodness! This time of year is always filled with the requisite end of the year parties and picnics, the kind of events I used to attend regularly when my kids were younger. Of course, now, as teenagers, the father away I am from school, the better ~ for all parties involved! To illustrate that fact, I want to throw it back to June of 2013, the first time I posted this tale.


If you've already heard the story, I apologize, but I really think you may get a kick out of it again. If you have never read this one, well, it's basically another embarrassing story. About me. And texting.

It's called:

Please, Just Take My Phone Away

Technology is not generally my friend.

Is it yours?

  1. OMG Kim! That is such a funny texting story and thanks for the laugh today! Boy I am so glad that school is over for the kids. What a year and how hard they work at being good students and I feel like we are their entourage! Hope you have a nice afternoon. We get to sleep a little later here too! :0)

    1. No, you can’t make this stuff up…that’s for sure, Julie! Although, sometimes, I wish it was just a story. ;) I am glad that school is done, too, I feel the exact same way. I need a vacation!! I don’t remember my mom having to do all the stuff I feel like we need to do to support them. It was sink or swim for me.

  4. That is SO funny, Kim! One reason I got a smartphone was so I could lock it! Found out one of my daughters had gotten into a bunch of texts hubby and I had sent to each other....super racy texts! Now I can keep her out!

  7. Too funny, Kim! And I can identify---In a way. My hubby always thinks he's so seductive-- whispering in my ear, "So what color are your panties today?" It grows old after awhile and I knew he was doing it to make me squirm so one day in front of our 4 semi-adult children, I said, "Why do you ask? My panties are red today!" He doesn't do it so much anymore!! :)

    Thanks for a funny blast from the past! :) You are so darn cute!

  8. OMGosh....those stories were hilarious!!! I'm so glad I'm not the only one who has done that...AND my son has done something similar to me thinking he was sexting his wife....embarrassing for both of us, needless to say...LOL. Alfred Hitchcock movies -- wonderful! I watched The Birds, once...will never watch it again. It terrified me!

  11. Loved "the reads!"
    The black crows freaked me out . . . and I am here
    and they are there with you . . .
    and are fake crows . . .
    The Birds was the scariest movie ever, I still remember sitting in the theater with my coat over my head.
    Not sure I could watch it again.
    And if I did and a fake crow landed on my shoulder . . .
    It would be OVER . . . all OVER!

    1. Birds freak me out, Lynne. I like to look at them from afar, but any closer than that reminds me of that movie and I shudder. Of course, my friends know this and love to tease me!!

  12. What a hoot this story was Kim! Boy there are times when technology is just not convenient, lol! I always worry I am sending a text to the wrong person... and your story confirmed that I should worry, lol! Oh my! What a great story, a good belly laugh for the day!! Will have to come back when I have more time to read more of your stories! :)

    1. I am always terrified of sending the wrong message…emails, texts, blog comments…you name it. I check and double check, but not that day. I was in such a rush to exact my revenge, I blew it! It was very funny though and all these years later, the story still makes me laugh! :) Glad I made you laugh, too!! :)

  18. Too too funny!

    On another real life note, our oldest friends are now divorced after 41 years of marriage because he sent an email, intended for his girlfriend of over 35 years, to his wife. The entire community was in shock that the pillar of the community was a fraud. Sadly, he fell off of his pedestal and he is still trying to regain his stature, even with his daughters.

    1. Yes, I think that technology mishaps and mix ups have gotten a log of people into hot water. I am sorry for your friend...and the family.
