Skipping Breakfast and Other Not-So-Bright Ideas

So I had a BIG meeting at work today. The kind you wake up early and actually iron your pants for. Okay, who am I fooling? By iron, I mean throw them in the dryer for 10 minutes. Okay, okay....after you take out the load of towels that have been setting in there for three days. So, all I am saying is it was a pretty BIG meeting.

My belly was grumbling and all nervous ... no way I could eat... so I chose not to cook breakfast for the kids like normal. Okay, okay, by cook I mean put cereal and milk in a bowl. I instead gave them a healthy fruit snack of Spiderman and Batman. This soon turned into a fruit snack catapult fight between the two boys as I sat down to slip into my three-inch-heels.

I grabbed my laptop, ran out the door, and over prepared for my big presentation. I was on top of my game. I stood in front of my superiors and gave one bang up, informative, life altering speech. I even had to request all questions and comments be held until the end as the hands began to fly up during the presentation. I could tell they were impressed. At the end they asked questions like, "How many kids do you have?" "How many boys?" "Wow, you must have your hands full."

It seemed strange that they would focus on my home life, but they obviously were impressed with the fact that I could multitask with three kids and yet still present such an amazing presentation. Yep, that is me Super Mom.

As I sat down gleeful and a little full of myself, my coworker leaned over and whispered in my ear, "You have a cherry Spiderman stuck to your butt."

Well good thing, cause I was starving after skipping breakfast.

Don't be too bummed, (no pun intended) better a sticky Spidey on your posterior than broccoli in your teeth!

That reminds me of a time that I sauntered out of a building through a gathering of rival military company men whom we'd been fighting with over rec room privileges for days... and I had a dryer sheet stuck to my butt.

Trust me, it doesn't sound that embarrassing, but it was.

Particularly when they all started pointing and laughing.

And no one even told me. :\

Hilarious but glad you made it through your big presentation. Maybe they didn't notice... yeah right. At least you got it off there before you put it back in the dryer to "iron" it for next time- that could be quite the mess!

Oh man! I was not expecting that. Thanks for the laugh! Really, I'm sorry, but it was funny!
