No, this blog isn't about country music, which I despise by the way. But the title of that country song just cracks me up and can sum up so much about life! Recently, whenever I come across someone who does something nutty, I just quote the title of that song and bust out laughing.
Now I don't profess to be sane. Just ask my family. They can tell you I'm one crazy bitch, especially when my WV Mountaineers are on TV playing football. But I know for a fact that I've never entered the wrong house and slept in someone else's bed, or gone up to a total stranger and asked them to be my facebook friend, or had a complete blowout in someone else's toilet when my own house was right across the street. Yes, those are all true little tidbits from people I have met.
I also love the misguided confidence of some folks. Last fall, one of the Dads on Ryan's football team was sporting a home arrest ankle bracelet most of the season. Now I don't know about you, but I would damn sure wear long pants to hide that piece of jewelry when I came out to watch my son play, but he didn't have a care in the world about it. He just wore his jorts like it was any other day. Then when I was PTA President of Ryan's elementary school, we hosted a FAMILY movie night. Some Mom dropped off her 8 year old child unattended for the evening while she went out clubbing. I had the unfortunate task of telling her it was not a "drop off event" when she came to pick up her child (who was the last kid still there). She got right in my face and proceeded to yell at me with her tongue ring and tell me a thing or two!!!! Really lady???? Who drops off their kid unsupervised at an evening event so they can go out on a date?
But hands down, the winnah, goes to the guy who came into the emergency room many, many moons ago when my husband was still doing his training in another state. He had a pencil stuck in his urethra. When the doctor asked how the pencil got there, he replied that he was painting on a ladder naked and he fell off the ladder right onto the pencil and it just got stuck in there. Now, I didn't just fall off the turnip truck yesterday so I'm pretty damn sure it didn't happen that way. As I like to say, "God is Great, Beer is Good, PEOPLE ARE CRAZY"!!!!!!
