Embarrassing Story: Almost Getting Myself Abducted

Car Dummy

I have always been very day-dreamy and a little air-headed. One day in high school a boy that I sorta-kinda-maybe-liked said hi to me after school. I was OUT TO LUNCH. I completely checked out of my own brain. I started imagining our wedding and how many kids we were going to have and what we would name them.

My mom was coming to pick me up in her super generic-looking Honda. So when I walked out to the front of the school I got into the first white car I saw…

I buckled myself in. Keep in mind that I’m a high-schooler and way too old for this kind of mistake. I started to rummage through my backpack when suddenly… I noticed that my mom was listening to some weeeeird music. It was like Bulgarian opera of some kind? Which is not on my mother’s usual playlist. I slowly glanced over at the hand resting on the shifter, which just happened to be attached to the hairiest arm I’ve ever seen. I looked up in horror at the large Duck-Dynasty-lookin’-dude in the driver’s seat, who could no longer hold in his gut-busting laughter.

I fumblingly undid the seat-belt, grabbed my stuff, tripped on the way out and skidded my face on the grass. All the kids out front laughed and pointed at my lifeless body on the lawn. My mom watched in disappointment from the car directly behind my unintended Uber. I awkwardly picked myself up and got into the correct ride. As we drove away I saw my almost-abductor still cry-laughing about it all.

So there you go. Always double check the car you’re about to strap yourself into.

My Emo Pregnancy

I think the best way to describe being pregnant is like being a Sim with every one of your health bars in the red. You’re always hungry, you’re always tired and you always have to pee. I remember once sitting on the toilet and wishing I could eat a sandwich and take a nap at the same time.

But last year I had an easy pregnancy… well I mean besides Exorcist-puking so hard that you pee yourself and your husband nicknames you “Puddles” for the next several weeks.

The only other thing about it was that I was SUPER emotional. I cried over everything that could be even kind of sentimental. It got so completely ridiculous in fact that I decided to take a Snapchat every single time I started crying. Below is my photo series from last year’s pregnancy I hope you enjoy the ridiculousness of my tears

Being pregnant with Jack was the most amazing, maturing and in-touch moments of my life. In fact he still makes me cry all the time… “You can put the remote in the dishwasher all by yourself?” *sobs*
