Okay, I came across this video and thought it was a joke, a parody, but it's not!!! It's real!!! It's the promotional video for the Miss Utah pageant and I just about died. There are so many things wrong here on so many levels. Can you count them all??
Hint: start with the sparkly face tattoo, the red dragon lady gloves,
the "we all went to college for something, and we're moms," and the, "If
I don't win I hope someone will win," or the best, "I heard a voice in
my shower while my mascara was running down my face!" The fun does not
Okay, story #2.
The other week we visited my brother and his family for dinner. My brother has this junk room above his garage where he squeezed a TV and has turned it into his hangout room. After I cleaned up from dinner I hitched Jack onto my hip and went to look for Gary so we could start to head home.
"I don't know. I think he's in The Man Cave."
"ManCave? What's Man Cave, Mommy?"
"Oh...just a Man Cave. A place where Uncle Rob likes to be." Because Jack says his thoughts out loud he repeated it a few times, entranced with the idea of it. I didn't think any more of it.
Fast forward to church on Sunday. We are sitting in The Royal Pew and as usual I am trying to keep a lid on Jack. He is on my lap and I find the first book I can to keep him busy. It's a little lift-the-flap book on Jesus. So we get to the end and I whisper in his ear, "This is Jesus. He's in his...." and I couldn't figure out how to explain the concept of a tomb and all that so I just said, "he's in a cave." (You see what's coming.) And Jack in his LOUD voice says, "OH! Jesus is in his MAN CAVE Mommy! It's Jesus' Man Cave!" and I am trying to shush him as the family behind us begins to crack up and Jack repeats various variations of "Jesus has a man cave too Mommy! Just like Uncle Rob! A man cave!" Like I've said, once he gets going it's hard to get him to stop. Inner voice, Jack!
