Not Me! Monday

It's Monday again and with that brings "Not Me!" Mondays! Our beloved MckMama unveiled a new logo for us to proclaim to the bloggy world how perfect we really are.

I did not spend an hour trying to figure out why my home phone line wasn't working. I did not unplug, plug, rearrange countless wires, push god only knows how many buttons and then try to figure out how to put them all back correctly. I was convinced it was their system, the man on the other end of the line was not! Let's just say, I am not absolutely and thoroughly enjoying my new fancy phone since I went and purchased one at Target. Nope, not me! (sorry Mr. comcast guy I concede, you were right)

I was not entirely convinced that practicing bowling on my Wii would actually make me a better bowler. One trip to the "real" bowling alley, a few gutter balls later and my hopes were squashed! Nope, not me!

I do not "forget" to defrost meat on hot days so that my hubby will be "forced" to take me out to dinner and I will be spared the wrath of the hot kitchen. That would be shameful and make me such a bad housewife. I would never, ever do that.

(Table for 3 at Chilis, please!)

I did not discover that in my old age ( heck, we all know I'm approaching 30 soon) that I've become kind of accident prone although I occasionally show some aspect of my dwindling athleticism.

I did not trip on a pair of toddler shoes and almost eat it only to shoulder check the door jam like a hockey player, and ricochet towards the couch to land in the soft pile of pillowy goodness. Sore shoulder, but I still have my teeth unlike a "real" hockey player.

I also did not totally miss the WET FLOOR cone at Safeway and proceed to use their aisle as a slip and slide. Luckily for me, I never lost hold of the cart and managed to "right" myself, but unlucky for my shin that now has a bruise the size of Texas from hitting the bottom bar of the cart.

Me, accident prone, NEVER!

I just had to check your blog and see if you were 29 or had 29 in your family. After the Duggers, well you never know! Enjoy your "old age" and please be sure and steer around us old foggies in our 40's pushing toddlers around. We're tired and certain to trip over you young uns sliding down the aisle ; )
