I Have Flare!

Sometimes in the car, I get bored.

You know how it is. Sitting at a red light and your eyes kind of wander and you're just bored. Sure you could turn your music up and sing loud, but what if your baby's asleep? Sure you could get out your old cell phone and call someone, but you're spending your minutes then. So what do you do while you're waiting at a red light?

I don't know about you, but the other day I was just in this very situation.

And you know what I did?

Well, my husband has this rare talent of being able to move his nostrils back and forth. I can't do it. I want to, but I just can't. So I was at the light, waiting my turn, looking at myself in the rear view mirror and trying so hard to wiggle my nostrils.

I was just starting to sort of get it, when all of a sudden I heard a HONK! HONK!


I look over right as the Young Men's President drives by and waves at me!

Oh, for the love.

I glance back up at the mirror to see my face.

Yup, looked like an idiot.

Check another one off for the "you're a total dork" list.


  1. Why is it always someone you know that drives by when you look stupid? I've never figured it out!

  2. Hey, at least you weren't *picking* your nose . . .

  3. I'm coming over from Mormon Mommy Blogs, asking for your help. I am in the running for a round trip airfare paid ticket to Connecticut, to meet a friend I became acquainted with through blogging. She is a super fun person and is holding this contest. I entered a funny story titled "Grapejuice Floaties, Now Marry Me." The person whose story receives the most votes will win a trip to meet this generous lady, whom I'm hoping to meet. The voting ends tonight-midnight. I used to be ahead but there is a story coming up from behind out of nowhere, and it's a tight race now. I would so much appreciate your help. Her blog is and the voting is on the sidebar on the right. "Grapejuice, Floaties" Just go there and cast a vote for me, please. Thanks so much-you're awesome! ♥♥

  4. You know, I have a special place in my heart for DORKS. And by the way, I can flare my nostrils!! I amaze myself sometimes ---perhaps I am a dork like you.

  5. lol! I love the word Dork.

    words I love
    El Stupido

    I love that you do dorky things :)

  6. Oh melonhead...I swear we could be sisters! If I were skinnier, cuter and well you know...I go crosseyed when people annoy me (right to their face) so making faces in the mirror is nothing sister
