risky business: Seth makes a friday funny



Today I posted at  The Mother Letter Project, so check it, and Seth from The Mother Letter Project, who is my good husband, is bringing you our funny story for the week. Enjoy!

Amber meets with a small group of college girls every Tuesday night.  They are young and impressionable, each is as pure as the wind-driven snow.  Amber has grown close with these girls, and they typically babysit for us. 

A few weeks ago, two of these girls came to the house to babysit.  While Amber was explaining the finer points of the evening—where we would be, what we would be doing, what to do if Jude decided to eat an entire box of antacids—Ian came toddling into the room fist closed tightly around a little, grayish package.  I thought nothing of it, walked to him, and held my hand out, asking him to drop his square treasure into my hand, not realizing exactly what it was. 

Now, Amber and I have had three children in a very short period of time, so we have taken certain “precautions” to ensure certain things (we’re all adults here, stop giggling like church-ladies).  Somehow, Ian had discovered one of these “precautions” and decided to present it to me in front of one of those sweet college girls. Hoping to keep her eyes from sure defilement, I quickly hid the item where any good guy would— in my wallet.  Promptly, I forgot about it. 

A few weeks later, this Wednesday to be exact, I opened my wallet to pay for certain items at a certain auto-repair shop.  Both cash and that gray packet came spilling onto the counter.  Quickly, I brushed it into my wallet, slightly embarrassed.  Finding it humorous, I decided to send Amber a text. 

“So 1 day Ian had a condom and I took it from him. I slid it in my wallet for who knows why. Just found it. Feel like a teenager… The kind I never was.” 

A few minutes later, I received a response, but not from Amber.  “Wow, are you coming on to me” it asked?  I reviewed the text chain.  I HAD SENT THE TEXT TO A MINISTER!  

Text confession is a risky business.

I had to read this aloud to my husband, the closing line really sums it up!

Oh, that story just kept getting funnier, from the time your toddler presented you with with a condom to the told the wrong person about it. Was this a random clergy member or someone you know well? Not sure which would be worse, actually. :-)
In my Friday Funny, my hubs is also the leading character (with best supporting actor going to the 4 yr old).

I sure hope that minister was a man. It would be slightly less embarrassing, I think. Oh my. I'm laughing, but I'm feeling sorry for you at the same time. I would just die if that happened to me. I will just say this, though - some things are best kept under lock and key. ;) And that is my tip for the day.

    No, it was Matt Mooney, and he is our friend, but still! I feel like the minister part doesn't even matter. It's hilarious.

It really IS risky business. Both my husband and my brother are named David, and on at least one occasion I have sent a racy text to the wrong one. Awkward!

This is really funny. I am sure Matt got a laugh from it, and that makes me smile too. The embarrassing moments in our lives help us realize how totally human we are...and that is never a bad thing. Laughing at oneself is healthy too! Thanks for sharing. That made my day!

Hilarious. Reminds me of the time one of mine got ahold of a gag gift someone had given us that included the personal lubricant that has "a warming sensation." He smeared it all over his legs and then cried for twenty minutes b/c it tingled.

Couldn't have happened to a nicer person! I have to say Seth, Lord forgive me, that I enjoyed laughing at you for once and not the other way around. I mean that light heartedly (is that a word?). I relish the chance to peek into y'alls family life. It is a bit surreal to me, you know the whole knowing you as a kid and all. Yes, we were still children back then, even in high school. I still remember one of your high school crushes. Don't know why. Seth, it reads as if you have turned out to be a good guy, loving husband and great daddy. Good thing you married up! ;) I pray for the Lord to continue to bless your sweet (but real) family. Blessings to you too Amber. I didn't want to leave you out. Especially since you are the heart of the home. Thank you for embrassing your roles as mother, wife and child of God.

Oh and thank you Amber for embracing your role as a mother while other mothers like me use our time to rewrite the english language. Honestly! So know what I meant...I hope.

Lora Lynn,

Your story is funnier.

Oh my... I'm on hold for a conference call and hoping I can pull it together before the other guy says "Hello."

Too late...

Once Ella bounced into the living room with a little package of her own. She begged to have it and asked me to open it for her. I, of course ,refused and told her it was something for grownups. She was not buying. She said, "I know its candy. I can feel the stick."

I've read this story three times and have laughed harder every time I've read it. Too Too funny. Thanks for sharing

Reply March 13, 2009

The whole thing is BLESSED HILARIOUS!!! Love it.

Reply March 13, 2009

Um. Wow.
Definitely going to have to share this one with my husband!
Just makes me think of all the lovely things our children will some day do, and maybe then I'll have some funnies to post of my own!

Oh, and about our puppy...(Seth?) We definitely love her this young, too, but can't wait until she gets out of the terrorizing biting stage.
