Anyone else go to your child's end-of-the-year preschool party and realize that the ball00n artist greeting you enthusiastically was the guy who offered your junior high boyfriend a dollar to break up with you so he could date you?*  Just me?  OK then.

*My boyfriend refused, by the way.  And no, I don't condone dating in middle school.


  1. But what did you DO? Did he recognize you? Did you duck behind something and hide, like I would have done?

    1. He recognized me and gave me a big hello before I even realized who it was. "I see your parents all the time! How are you?" Me: "..."

  3. lol

    You must live in the same town you grew up in too. I have these embarrassing types of encounters often.

  4. You have to do these stories more often. I LOVE THEM. Makes me feel normal.

    Convo last week about picking up bookshelves from Walmart:
    Me: will you please go with me and help me load them?
    J: they'll have a guy help you load them
    Me: yeah but it's prob some guy I went to high school with so I really don't want to deal with the awkwardness

  5. LOL. Sorry, but that is truly funny and ironic :)

  6. Aieeee. That is a good story. The best part is that he's the balloon guy.

  7. This put a huge smile on my face!

  8. You are a brave woman. I worked hard to escape my home town :)

  9. HAHAHAHAAA! 2 of the guys who stood up in our wedding told Hub when we started dating (waaaay back in high school) that if things didn't work out with us, they were going to ask me out themselves.
