Today's Soul Crusher

When Violet and I were at the park today she noticed two bigger girls, about eight or nine years old, on the swings. She ran up to them and said hi. One of the girls looked at Violet and said, "She's the cutiest." (Not a typo.)

The same girl then reads Violet's shirt which has "I Get My Cute From My Mommy" on it. (No, I'm not conceited, my sister bought it for her. If I bought one it would say, "My Cuteness Is a Total Genetic Fluke. Yay For Genetic Flukes!") So, the little girl reads the shirt and then she looks at me for a second, pauses and then says, "Ummm, are you her mom?"

Hahahaha! I love it.

What do they know. I've seen your pictures before and so what if sometimes you're purple or you have one eye and where a big tall black hat. I still think you're cute.

So after you punched the little girl and told her to tell her friends, that you are violet's mom and not to mess, did you go get a t-shirt that said: "yes, i am her HOT mom, go eff yourself"?

if not, i can go make that shirt for you.

I am immediately incorporating the word cutiest into my lexicon.

And when you left, one girl said to the other, "When she got the cute from her mom she must have taken it ALL."

Just kidding damnit. Damnit. Just damnit.

Sorry, I put the kids to bed and raided the easter baskets, I'm bouncing.

Thanks for the comments everyone. I thought it was pretty funny really.

Maelstrom- I only wish I had thought of that! That is too hilarious!

Maybe they thought you looked too young to be her mommy!

:) I love the way your shelfari is lookin' these days. You've got the whole undead thing goin' on. You should've said "Yes and I get my beauty by eating small children, so you better sleep with one eye open from now on, Cupcake."
