Sex, Lies and Soccer Games
Yesterday was the area high school's Homecoming parade. The girlscouts had a small float. I sat with three other mommies on the back of an SUV pulling a small trailer, aka the float. There was cheering. There was candy throwing. And there was picture taking. It was all followed by a $5 fundraising hamburger,chips, drink and cookie meal. Later, as I was tucking the girls in to bed, I heard my phone ringing in the other room. When I checked the message it was the mom who had driven the SUV/float saying she had my camera. After a quick mental review, I realized I not only left the digital camera in the back of her car but also the video camera. When I called her back, she explained that isn't it great now with digital technology, you can just look at the pictures and video to find out who lost their camera? Which made my mind do a few twists trying to remember what exactly IS on the video camera. To the best of my recollection, there is: the girls swimming, the girls at cheer camp, the girls in the cold tub, the girls on the trampoline, the girls in Galveston, the girls, the girls and more of the girls. I mentioned it to Erik later. The what if? What if that mommy just decided to try to find out who left the camera in her car and instead of 2-4-6-8 from cheer camp she got a little mommy / daddy 69? Wouldn't that get the PTA talking?
