I'd write a soundtrack to my childhood, but nobody wants to listen to a dirge lmao...
So I'm super excited to share with you my most embarrassing moment ever.
So,My husband and I take our children bowling.
My then 7 year old had a bit of a hard time rolling the bowling ball down the lane.
Well, she rolls it and it only goes halfway down where it stalls in the middle of the lane.
(You can see where this is headed, can't you....well good for you, I didn't.)
Well, Sophie was soooo upset.
I told my baby not to worry, mama would fix it.
(Yes I am one of those idiots who didn't really think)
I head down the lane gingerly....and made it.
I pick up the bowling ball.
I turn around...
In the best impression ever of slapstick comedians the world over.
My feet fly out from under me and I land flat on my back and the bowling ball goes flying up the lane.
Which would have been bad enough,
But in the spirit of 'Ain't she the coolest mom ever!'
I had also gotten a ten dollar roll of quarters so the kids could have fun at the arcade later....
Which I had unrolled to get my oldest a grape fanta for a quarter just prior to starting our bowling game...which left $ 9.75 in loose change in my shirt pocket.
A pocket that wasn't buttoned.
Which meant ALL that loose change went flying into the air when my feet flew out from under me...
(Oh, and Did I mention that there was a bowling tournament and we had managed to score the last lane in the place.)
So as my 262 lb frame lay splayed out in the middle of the bowling lane.
My husband standing at the top of the lane with his hands covering his face.
My oldest, still grasping her prized grape fanta in her ungrateful clutches, bent over cackling so hard she was hyperventilating, the only sound in the otherwise suddenly deathly quiet bowling alley...
Only my youngest, too naive to realize what a complete ass I had made of myself yells...
"Mama, are you Okay?!"
I say "yes baby", while staring at the ceiling..
Dead silence as every eye was trained on me..I managed to roll off my back, get on my knees,
Allowing everyone to laugh as they ought.
After collecting my quarters, recieving a good scolding from the bowling manager, and finishing our game.
I was able to laugh about it.
They still bring it up.
Humiliation is fleeting, mockery lasts forever.
Tappity tap tap...

So after the gym tonight I went grocery shopping...I overheard the young bagger talking about working out.
So I asked him about it on the way out.
He said he was studying to be a personal trainer for young adults.
"Oh how interesting...Do they have personal trainers for obese and morbidly obese people?"
He said, "No. Not that I know of.'
I said "You would think they would...considering how many people in America are obese or Morbidly obese."
He said "That's true."
He then said " I try to be really disciplined about what I eat, cause you can work out but if your eating is terrible you will stay fat...My wife does too...she has had three kids and only weighs 110 lbs."
(I almost applauded sarcastically)
(Meaning I suppose that slobs who gain weight lack discipline.)
"I lost over 100 lbs. I think people need to deal with their food addiction. That is a large part of it."
He just looks at me like I have grown a third eye.
He said "Wow, that is a lot of weight. Great job!"
two seconds ago (unbeknownst to him) I had been an undisciplined slob...now I wasn't.
You see, this is what I am talking about.
People who have never had a weight issue...don't get it.
I can see how obese or morbidly obese people would feel judged by this guy.
I did and he didn't view me that way.
I don't think I will ever be that mindset.
I have been there.
I know who I was and a lazy, undisciplined slob wasn't it.
I was depressed.
I was hopeless.
But I wasn't lazy.
I just put all my effort and energy into everything but me and my health.
I almost told the boy to put on an extra hundred pounds and wear it for a week.
See how tired he is.
Well, Had a great day, stayed in under calories.
3 eggs, 1 toast, 2 cups of coffee, one granola bar, one small bag beef jerky one hamburger (homemade with bun pickles, tomato and onion) and carrot sticks.
Have a great day guys.
