I did tons of stupid things

21 03 2008

This is to make up for the blog I recently posted about my mother.  Granted, she’s odd, but I have no room to talk.  I’m not only clumsy, but kind of dim sometimes.

Okay, when I was about 8 years old, my mother was struggling to put my hair into a bun for a ballet recital.  It took lots of hairpins and hairspray.  So much hairspray that I had to stand there with my eyes closed while she kept whirling that damned can around my head.  I started coughing and she said “Run.”  So I did, out of the bathroom and straight into a wall.  Because I didn’t bother to open my eyes.

My defense: She didn’t tell me to open my eyes.  Momma gave me an order and I followed it.  She should have been more explicit.

Mom’s thoughts following this incident?  According to her, she just sat there, shaking her head and thinking “That’s my gifted child.”

Did she laugh at you? Or at least video tape it and send it to America’s Funniest Home Videos?
