The time my Dad embarassed the crap out of me
My Dad was known to attend my basketball games (I played and was a rah-rah'er) in plaid pants. And not just ANY plaid pants. Very LOUD plaid pants. My friends would say things like "hey Murry (my nickname in HS) ... what do you think your Dad is wearing tonight?" and people would CHEER when he walked into the gym if he had them on.
Yes ... embarassing moments to be sure. But this one takes the cake.
When I was in college, my parents took a group of high school kids up to Toronto to see Phantom of the Opera. I was able to make the trip, but the caveat was that I had to sleep in my parents' room in the other bed. No biggie, I thought.
I used to wear contacts when I was growing up, before I had my cataract surgeries. Because I was blessed with cataracts when I was born, my vision was very poor without the aid of contacts or glasses. So when I was ready to go to bed, I took my lenses out, and I couldn't see anything. My father used this to his advantage that night in that hotel room.
My mother was having "tummy trouble," and was in the bathroom for some time. I went to bed, and my Dad turned on the tv. He was flipping through the channels when all of a sudden, I hear this cheesy music, and start hearing the sounds of two women... so you get the drift.
I sat straight up in bed, flipped on the light, and my Dad started chuckling.
DAD!!!! I CAN'T BELIEVE YOU!!!!! I am IN this room with you!!! I might not be able to SEE what you are watching, but I sure as heck am not DEAF!
Haaaa haaa... oh yeah.... ok. Flips the channels again.
About 3 minutes later, hoping I had gone to sleep, what channel is back on? Yep.
So I pulled out the big guns...
MOM! You wouldn't believe what Dad has on in here!!!
What is he watching?
A PORNO! With ME in the room!!!
JERRY!!!!! You turn that off RIGHT NOW!
Heh heh .... the remote control was stuck.
Stuck my butt.
I'm a mom of three peeps ... Queen Bee, The Door Man, and the Chandelier Monkey, and wife to Ace, the Helpful Hardware Man. I created this space to get away from the people known as my inlaws, and because life with three kids and a hubby is all Unexplored Territory.
