I suppose it’s my fault. I don’t wear a wedding ring after all and I guess a man likes others to know that a woman is with him. Maybe that’s it. Maybe that’s why I’m walking around looking like white trash right now with a hickey front and center on my neck.
I didn’t want to bring it up, it’s very embarrassing you know, but being that it’s front and center on my neck what’s the use in trying to hide it. I just wish I hadn’t had it today. Today when I had to go to the high school to pick up my son’s diploma. Today when I had to meet with all of the office workers that LOVE him, and that looked at me quite funny as they asked, “You’re Landon’s mom?” (They’ve meet me before but I guess the new hair and the HICKEY threw them off)
And blame it on the meds I had taken for a migraine, or the migraine itself, or maybe the fact that I had just been watching my kids take swimming lessons for two hours in a stuffy room, or perhaps even the fact that I was in a high school office, whatever the reason, I found myself speaking to these dear ladies like I was an idiot. Using phrases that a teen girl would use as I explained why Landon hadn’t walked with his class, “And he was like this, and we were like that…” I seriously used the term “like” um, LIKE a lot. Am I almost 40 or 14?
Hickeys? Primitive speech? Where was my big wad of gum?
Will I ever grow up? Is there any hope for me?

Waylon sure hopes not because we like had a really fun time riding this scooter today.
It was like way cool.
Being a grown up is so overrated.

You are hilarious. Next time you happen to be in the neighborhood, can we play? I think we'd get along just fine.

Hee, hee! You're right--being a grown up is overrated. I spend way too much time being a grown up! Thanks for the reminder to play a little more.

woo Hoo- You go get her Rick!!! I want to know what your kids said about the hickey though! I can't imagine neing a teenager & having my mom have a hickey from my dad. That's so funny.
And the fact that your so young & cute. They were just jealous that your still getting some & have a body like that & that it was a hickey & not a bruise from falling down from old age or something!!
I love that picture of you. You look so happy & just plain cute. No wonder Rick can't keep stop acting like a teen - you look so great you make him feel young!
