We going to file this under “you can take the girl out of Tillamook”...

I ran to Market of Choice (high end yuppie grocery market chain in Eugene) to grab a few things we needed for tomorrow's tailgate snacks. Actually, need is probably not the right word here, since I came home with, amongst other things, organic cupcake sprinkles and a $40 bag of dog food. Anyways as I climbed out of the car, I noticed I was in the following fetching outfit: an old pair of denim shorts, Birkenstocks, and a faded T-shirt I got at Target sometime in the early 90s. To top it off, I was a little big wiggly since I had already ditched the bra for the evening.

Ah well, at least my nails still looked fabulous from the wedding last weekend.

Mom sounds LOOPY?

I asked Samantha to teach me one of her favorite bed time songs, Mountain Dew . As I joined her in the first couple chorus lines...

They call it that good old mountan dew,
And them that refuse it are few....
she stoped me and said, "No mom. Do it in a Southern accent, not your drunk accent."

For the record

- I was not drunk, it was 6:30 in the morning
- MY? drunk accent? what are you talking about child?
- I was asking for help with the lyrics, NOT my singing style
- I'm an Oregonian. I don't have a southern accent.

I objected. She replied, "I'm sorry mom, you sound Loopy."
