You Know What's Embarrassing...?

Well, hold on--before I tell you, I want to sent a HUGE thank you out to Heather and Tiffany of SITS for being such geniuses and thinking up the great idea that is SITS and also to all the AMAZING ladies who stopped by my blog and commented yesterday. It was so much fun--I didn't want it to end!! Thanks again Everybody--SO much!! I will be making the rounds to all of your blogs--it might take a few days to get to everybody though!

Okay--for full impact of my humiliation--listen to this as you read:


Do you know what's embarrassing?

Calling one of the moms (that I hardly know) from Gooser's kindergarten class from my cell phone while in the car and leaving a message (RSVPing for a party!).

But not realizing that I didn't push the "end call" button correctly.

Then cranking up Queen's "Another One Bites the Dust."

Then singing along--LOUDLY--practically channeling Freddie Mercury.

Then noticing the "end call" button is still on the iPhone's screen and realizing that the whole ugly episode has been recorded on the mom's voicemail.

Then gasping and ending the call.

Yeah...that's embarrassing.

Now please excuse me while I pack up my family and move to another city--I just can't face her at kindergarten drop-off tomorrow!!

Just think, it's way better than if you said something like "ugh, I can't stand that woman!" LOL

Ronda's Rants said...

You do Rock!

Heather said...

Awww, I wouldn't worry - at least it was Queen, I mean, they call Queen "classic" rock for a reason: Queen never goes out of style!

It isn't like, you know, you had cranked up some Engelbert Humperdinck or something.... :)

Brooks said...

I would be embarrassed to but at least you were upbeat, happy and singing instead of inserting your foot in your mouth by saying something mean. That is what would of happened to me!

Kori said...

At least she knows your a ROCKIN' COOL Mom!

Misty - Fellow AB Mommy! said...

I'm jamming out at work right now just reading your post!! EVERYBODY knows you're the coolest mom in the state of Illinois! Look at it this way - you just confirmed it for her!! :)

justjuli said...

I think you probably just made her day!

Maybe you could trade kareoke voicemails from now on... just to exorcise your inner rock star every once in a while.

:)
too funny!

Lori said...

AHHHHHH HA HA HA HA!! Don't worry, I'm sure she just thought you were dropping a hint to be asked to provide entertainment for the party. :D

Jamie said...

I agree with dysfunctional mom...It could have been a lot worse. Thanks for stopping by my blog this morning, feel free to visit any time. :)

Jo-Jo said...

Whatever! She probably thinks you are the coolest mom ever now and is afraid to face you in all your glory!

MBB Founder and Editor Denene Millner said...

LOL!!!! You're lucky--you could have been playing that Jay-Z song you were quoting yesterday... that would have gotten you kicked out of the PTA for sure. LOL!

Mimi said...

HA! Now she knows your cool, you could have been rocking out to Mel Torme. That would have been embarassing.

Jennifer said...

LOL--Yes, I'm sure she's totally intimidated by my mad singing skillz!!

Missy said...

At least it was a cool song! My sister did that to a friend of hers but it was a stupid song so she was made fun of!

{Ashley B} said...

Angie said...

Jen - Queen of Poo said...

Oh no! That's priceless.

I can totally see myself doing something like that.

You'll probably become best of friends now unless she hates Queen. ;-)

Mamahut said...

I can't believe I missed your big day yesterday! Congrats a day late. That is too funny about the phone call. That could have gone so much worse than it did. She probably did giggle at you...giggling is good for you! Just tell her your spreading the love.

Ashley said...

Hahah! Maybe she deleted the voice mail before you got really carried away! Wishful thinking anyway!

Susie said...

Oh Honey!!! I have feared it...I am almost obcessive about it. I won't even turn the radio back on until an hour after the call:-) Ok...not that bad but...

Too funny!

I always embarrass myself when leaving messages. Well, I think I embarrass myself... I tend to ramble. On and on. And on. But only when leaving someone a message. My mouth keeps talking, but the voice in my head is saying "just shut up now!"
