In which she knows ALL my stories

So this is just typical.

 

I get a text message from Keely asking me to give her a story from when I was a senior in college.  Now, I have spent mucho time regaling my kids with stories of my misspent youth and normally, they just take them as cautionary tales of how not to behave.  As a matter of fact, they have been known to tell MY stories to their friends.

 

I really don’t know why they do this but they do.

 


 

At any rate, Keely wanted one of my stories and I love how she was all like “I know ALL OF YOUR STORIES” so of course I say “how about the one where I went to Boston and met the mayor?” and she’s like “I don’t know that one!”

Umm … didn’t you just say you knew ALL OF MY STORIES Keely?  At any rate, then she starts giving me parameters.  Has to be PG-13 and all that crap.  I don’t have all that many PG-13 stories in the first place but to have to remember on a SUNDAY AFTERNOON no less is a lot of pressure.

 

 

So I tell her that I’ll think about it and she says “nevermind, I’ll use one of my own” like she’s punishing me or something.

 

Kids!  I don’t even know what to say!

    Yeah, I know the feeling. I swear it’s either they’re trying to punish us, make us feel useless because our memory has started to deteriorate, or just being plain mean. lol.

      i know…first they put you down because you always repeat yourself and then they turn around and ask for help and then they diss you for not helping them…YOU CANNOT WIN!

    Guess she was in a hurry and you just weren’t thinking fast enough for her! Now you’re going to come up with a great story and she’s going to be sorry she didn’t wait!

      well, she managed to come up with her own topic and the paper was great. i actually asked her if i could print it. But, she is ridiculous for asking for one of MY stories

    I shudder to think what I’ll say when my kids ask me about my college years. “Well, Sweetie there was the one time when I woke up in the bathtub of the Lambda Chi house missing one shoe. . .or would you prefer to hear of how Mommy almost flunked out because my 8:00am class wasn’t ‘hangover friendly’?” Three words: distract, deflect, deny.
