risky business: Seth makes a friday funny
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.
