Ah, a bloggy story is about to ensue. Are you ready?
One of my newer-ish bloggy friends is the ever entertaining and delightful Keetha. She often writes about sports, but I like her anyway. We are fellow science geeks and find it easy to get excited about beakers and test tubes and Mole Day. She also has a perky haircut that matches her personality. I mean, what's not to like?
I especially enjoy her little stories about the antics of her Sunday school kids and her 6th grade school class. Apparently, they are all as quirky as she is! Recently she ran a humorous anecdote about her 6th graders. (Sidenote: And just what's NOT humorous about a sixth grader?)
OK...I provided the link to the key blog entry in that last sentence. I'll wait here, while you go read it; it's short. You can do it. Go on...
Did you read it?
Funny bunch, aren't they? I'll bet they also like to experiment on the most proficient method for making armpit farts. (C,mon...admit it, guys. I used to have 6th graders!)
Anyhoo, after reading Keetha's entry, I made the following comment:
I could use a "Rudely finishes her husband's sentences" hat. You got one of those?
Guess what just came in the mail?
Yep...they actually made me my very own "Blurter's Hat"!!! The designer was the extremely talented Laura W. Thank you, Laura!
See. It says, "Rudely Finishes Her Husband's Sentences".
Um...Hmmmm. OK, so it says it backwards. That's not Laura's fault. That's mine for using PhotoBooth to take the pictures. It gives mirror images.
And here's the cheerful back. Note all the beaded danglies that make it so fun and festive!
And, since Groovy does indeed often catch herself rudely finishing her husband's sentences (poor guy!), here she is wearing it:
At this point I might add that Mulletman HIGHLY approves of the hat and thinks I should wear it every day as a reminder to NOT blurt.
So...Many, MANY thanks to my friend Keetha and her crazy class of blurting 6th graders. Thanks to you, I may actually one day overcome my own blurting tendencies.
And now - the best way to make an armpit fart? Think sweaty pits and bendy straws...
