I was up at the crack o'butt this morning to be at the school for the field trip.
If you have to get up early in the morning I am so sorry. If you choose to get up early in the morning we can longer be friends because I don't trust a morning person! I feel like I've been up for 72 hours, endured a beating and I think my kids had cookies for dinner! Whatevah!
We had a great day at the park. I played it cool, just following the kids around all day spending most of the day on backpack duty while they went on ride after ride after ride. This is their 8th grade trip, they so did not need a nosey Mom standing over them all day. I even let the girls roll their shorts at their waist totally breaking dress code and I allowed the two couples in my group to hold hands. Oh the horror right?!!? I am such a bad chaperon! At least I wasn't the one that was 30 minutes late getting back to the bus that was booed upon boarding...by the parents!
It was a great day for people watching. Man those tourists never fail to deliver do they? My top 3 favorites.
1. 6 year old topless girl with a pacifier. Her Mom saw my shock and awe, I was not about to bring the camera out!
2. 20-something hootchie walking around in a skirt big enough to be a headband with the cheeks of her booty and her white panties hanging out. I did not get her pictures, she quite honestly scared me a little!
3. Grown man in whitewashed jeans and black boots that were way too short and tight, a big ol' belt, a white t-shirt tucked in, with his stomach hanging over said belt and a green hat on. Dude strutted from one end of that park to the other! Seriously!
But I have to say the highlight of the day was when the bird flying in the beautiful blue sky thought I was wearing a target and crapped on my shoulder. Yes, I had a bird poop on me. As if my week hasn't been shity enough! What they say about it being good luck to have a bird poop on you better be the freaking truth! Personally I think the same person that said if it rains on your wedding day it brings you a happy marriage made that up too. I posted the incident on Facebook and do you know that a friend from school remembered that the same thing happened to me when we were in 8th grade during P.E.? How did she remember that? It did make me laugh though so, thanks Sam!
I'm off to soak in the hot tub for a few minutes before I shower crawl into my bed. Thank God there's no school tomorrow!
Thanks for all the sweet comments you left on my Debbie Downer of a post this morning. Y'all are just so sweet!
I just couldn't hit publish without sharing a picture or two.
Here is Mr. Dude. I have removed his face, because I care! You have to give him props for his confidence!
Although this did not make the top 3 it still needs to be shared. I have removed her face as well, I would hate to be stalked and slapped across the face for being not so nice. You should thank me for not showing the front shot, chick's about 60 and braless! I think she had a banana clip in and she has side wings!
Here's my group of 8, they are such great kids!
I apologize if this seems rude but I really needed a pick me up and this was just what the doctor ordered. I believe drinking would have been frowned upon while chaperoning a school function so I substituted one for the other and it totally did the trick!
