not me! monday



hello monday! what a great day to confess those things that we'd rather not admit to, which is the whole purpose of not me! monday! so here goes:

i did NOT let ben cut the grass, pull weeds, plant tomatoes, and grill our dinner. on FATHER'S day. this was NOT justified because i worked in the kitchen for 3 hours on mother's day!!

ryan did NOT pee on me today. ugh.

i did NOT about have a heart attack while shopping in petsmart on saturday. while we were looking at the various rodents ben looked up and said "oh, look at the snake." and as i looked up to see a 12-year-old boy (about 5 feet away from me) picking up an 18-inch snake i did NOT jump and let out a slight scream. i was NOT so relieved when the boy said, "don't worry. it's only a PLASTIC snake." but then he continued and said "but that one's real." and he turned to his father who was standing behind him with a 5 foot live ball python around his neck and arms. i did NOT gasp and back away a little and the man did NOT procede to ask me if i'd like to pet it. ummm... i'm fine, thanks! as we quickly walked away from the snake i was NOT the slight bit embarassed by the fact that i was freaked out by a tiny plastic snake when there was a huge live one right behind it!

ben did NOT run around walmart the other night stalking this little old man in hopes of capturing his hair-do on camera. he did NOT have a nice little bald spot with a mohawk. i do NOT think it's totally cute!



the temperature has NOT reared its ugly head around here. it is NOT 97 today with a heat index of 112 degrees. and we're not even to our hot months yet. sigh.

i am NOT gonna go eat a popsicle!

happy monday!

That's funny that your husband followed a man to get pictures of his hair!

okay, that picture is so weird. is it 2 pictures combined into 1, or was the scary-hair man actually a twin, one short and one tall? :) better go get my post done....

Heather said...

oh, i forgot to say... i would have TOTALLY been with you on the snake thing... YUCK!!

ben and erin said...

haha. yes heather, two pictures. ben cut off his head in the second picture, but from the side you can see how old he is!

Did the guy notice? Was it obvious? Cool though! I would have totally died on the snake too!

ben and erin said...

no! the guy actually didn't notice! although ben was a little worried that he'd turn and look right at him!
