Uncomfortable truths, vol. 6

1. I drool so much when I sleep that Grayson once nicknamed me the eighth dwarf: Drooly.

2. I've only seen about 10 minutes of Hoosiers.

3. Every time I'm driving behind someone and they throw a cigarette butt out their car window, I cringe because I'm sure that when I drive over it, my car's gonna explode. So if any of you are smokers, the next time you go to do that, think about the people like me in the car behind you, whose hineys are seizing up in fear.

4. I try really hard not to break the law, and generally I do pretty well. However, a couple of times a year, I seem to have a spurt of a few days in a row on which I run red pink stoplights. It's like, I don't do it for six months and then over three consecutive days I'll nearly run six stoplights. Then I don't do it again for the better part of a year. Now watch. Next week I'm gonna get a ticket.

5. There's no way to say this other than to just spit it out: Because my cough was so bad when I was sick recently and because I have no bladder control after having three children, last week I had to pull out the spare pair of underwear I keep in my desk drawer at work. And replace the ones I had on with them.

So now I bid a fond farewell to those of you who are never coming back after reading Number 5. It was lovely knowing you.

And a hearty WELCOME to those of you who will be joining us later today after Googling "spare pair of underwear in desk drawer"!

Katherine, you are just too funny! And, I will admit to 4 of the 5 above....I'll let you figure out which 4! HAHA!

Lacy said...

I'm a very bad drooler too. My husband makes fun of me all of the time! #5- WOW! LOL! At least you plan ahead...

Janine said...

You are hilarious my brave blogging friend! At least we can all now rest in the fact that we are all truly human and not all so pretty picture perfect :) hee hee

After reading this I can never again in good conscience say I'm "keeping it real" on my blog.

Rene said...

Only 10 minutes of Hoosier? Promise me you will watch it one day. Also, the butts make me cringe too.

Enjoy your weekend in dry underpants :)

at #3 I sat with my jaw open cause I'm the same way... then I got to #5 and had to go change undies myself. W O W

Jane said...

I just wrapped two Table Topics Family for Christmas presents for my siblings' families. Thanks for the idea! I wish you had posted the spare underwear idea before I stopped working! : )

Rachel said...

After reading #5, maybe that repeat C-Section isn't such a bad plan after all....

**rethinking VBAC**

Rachel said...

Umm. Yeah, about 5, umm? Here! Here! Only I keep a pair in my desk/purse. How funny.

Katherine @ Grass Stains said...

Robin, four outta five isn't bad! I can't believe you'll even admit to that many. ;)

Lacy, planning ahead is the key. THE KEY, I tell you.

Janine, never any claim from me to be picture-perfect! I don't think you've been around here that long, but trust me on that one.

Amy, speak it, sister! I can't believe you'll own up to #5.

Paige, word to your mother.

Rene, I think people will possibly call me un-American for the Hoosiers thing. I promise one day I will watch it. :)

Beth, well, at least I made you laugh!

Jane, Table Topics are the best! I bought three sets for gifts this Christmas, as well. So glad you think they're worth the purchase!

Rachel and Other Rachel, I will totally have to see if there's room in my purse for some underwear. And yes, a Section is the way to go if you'd like to retain control of your bladder. Ha!
