This Time I am NOT a TEASE!

I had an awesome Valentine's weekend complete with our first (and probably only) snow of the year, basketball games (1 kid won, other kid lost), Nana and Papa took the boys for the rest of the weekend, dinner, movie, Sunday lunch, and peace and quiet. Ahhhh...all is well with the world. 


As I was waiting for the prince to park the truck and join me in waiting for a table at a swanky downtown restaurant on Sunday, I saw something that caught my eye. I thought to myself, "Blog material! I must get a picture!" 


But if you've been reading me for a while, you already know I don't have much luck when it comes to capturing the moment with my camera! If you are a newbie, see examples of my epic fails here and here.


But this time, boys and girls.....I GOT IT!! 


*insert raucous applause and whistling*


That's right...the old toilet paper on the shoe schtick. 

I WAS however, nearly busted AGAIN! I didn't even consider that it was dark and that the FLASH would give me away! 

I played it off and didn't look at them when they stared at me. If they had confronted me on it, I was planning to tell them I was a moron and trying to learn how to text on my new (not really) phone. Luckily for me, right at the same time I was taking the flash photography...MIITB texted me. So I had a legit false alibi with that story. 

And I knew I had the women in their party on my side because I caught them being envious of my furilicious boots when I walked in. (Chicks will ditch anyone for awesome shoes.) I did manage to get another pic without the flash. The first pic didn't show you how ridonkulously long the toilet paper was!


There was, however, one other pic I wish I had gotten. While we were finishing up our lunch, the owner came over and turned on a nearby flat screen. He asked if we all wanted to watch the Olympics. The table of little old ladies requested Nascar. (Dear Lord please shoot me.) 

I didn't really think much of it at the time...since I live in the South, it's something I deal with quite a bit. Everyone around here loves Nascar...except for me...and maybe 3 other people. (Though I'm still searching for them.) 

I couldn't see the people at that table very well until they got up to leave. I was shocked to see the little old ladies file by in their FULL LENGTH MINK COATS and their botoxed faces wearing their diamonds and pearls! Not your typical Nascar crowd!!!! 

Welcome to my town. 

*sigh*

Hillbilly Duhn said...

Pics like these make me really really really wish I had a cell phone. I see this kind of stuff all.the.time, but can never get proof! See, now if I had a cell with a camera, I wouldn't see it...:)

Jenn said...

I have a toilet paper story that is even more horrific that finding that shit attached to a shoe. Thank GOD it has nothing to do with me, but my little sister was the ass of the joke. Also, I don't get nascar. I would rather stick my tit in a meat grinder than watch a left and a left and a left and a left and a left. HOLY SHIT, did you see that? They just TURNED LEFT? Gahhhhh.

LOL!!!

One time I took a picture of a lady wearing short shorts at the laundromat. I should blg about that! LOL!

It's hard to get images of stuff like this without them noticing.

Semi-Slacker Mom said...

I was wondered how swanky that restaurant was with the person wearing jeans witha hammer hook on it.

But that story totally sounds like my town.

Kmama said...

LOL!! you got one!

I almost peed myself when I realized it was toilet paper. I can't believe I'm sharing this, but I found some (unused...must clarify that it was unused) toilet paper on my work chair this morning after I had used the rest room and then came back to my desk. It was obviously on me somewhere. *blush*

Shell said...

LOL I believe it! I hate nascar, but I don't count as really being southern.

The Blue Zoo said...

Im always trying to catch stupid people doing stupid things with my phone. But it never works! The phone camera takes forever to load, and then there's the tattletail flash. I totally love your 'alibi'! LOL

Sunday said...

Never fear...I hate Nascar too.
But, I was born and raised in Oklahoma which according to some is not really the south.

OMGosh this is funny. I had a moment like this a month ago. We were waiting a very long time for a table at our local Japanese
place. While sitting there I saw a for sure hooker straight outta the happy ending massage parlor! I tried and tried to get a pic (using my kids as my decoys). It didnt work. I was very disappointed. Now the image only lives in my mind.

We must live in the same town! There are 2 season here...football and racing. Sucks when they over lap.

Homesick Cajun said...

Lmao...I always miss seeing funny things like that! I can't stand Nascar and I live in NC...that's like ungodly to hate it here! Lol... it's a bunch of damn cars going in a circle...what's to love?? Great post!

Jessica said...

***snoring***snoring***

Sorry...you just lost me at the mention of Nascar. I woke up the second you mentioned the bling though!

Too bad for the loser with the toilet paper on his shoe!

Bonehead said...

Ha! Great cover on the cell phone camera flash - don't think I'd be that quick.

Maybe it's a New York thing but I gotta ask - what's Nascar? ;)

Margaret said...

Those are great pictures! I can never get moments like that.

Sabrina said...

Okay, seriously...how LARGE was the person with the offending tp?! Those pants look HUGE!!!

Lisa said...

HAHA! I love it! I am always wanting to get pics of people at walmart for the site because there are so many weirdos in our walmart but I'm scared they will catch me and kill me dead!

Daffy said...

I think I may have to steal that 'Oh I was just trying to text' line.

That's a keeper!

KUDOS on catching the paper trail!

Beth P. said...

Hilarious. I love the tp picture.

I have an award for you! Come visit!

Tami G said...

Note to self: turn off flash!
