Today I unveil a new category.
It’s aptly named, Why yes! I AM insane! Because, y’all know, I’m a wee bit on the “WOO WOO” Twilight Zone-ish side on occasion. This particular time I am chaperoning a trip. I have volunteered (there’s that Can’t-Say-No thing again!) to chaperone a trip of first-and-second graders to the seaport museum. You know, the one near the river? We’re going there. IN DECEMBER. When it is 34 degrees. Yes, I volunteered! Because I’m SO. INVOLVED. WITH. MY. KIDS. And because I am insane.
Y’all do me a favor? Next time that permission slip comes home and it says, “HEY! WE NEED YOU TO VOLUNTEER TO WALK AROUND WITH LITTLE PSYCHOPATHS IN SUB-ARTIC TEMPERATURES!” Please make sure I check off the box that says, “HELL NO! DO YOU THINK I AM INSANE?”
Please. Thank you.
