Who's In Charge of Me?

About a month ago, I was in the Disney store and a cashier talked me into buying one of those foam thingees you can stick on your car antenna. I thought this was a wise idea, considering I am one of those people who often forgets where she parked. I bought a pink Minnie Mouse princess head thingee with glittering silver tiara, because I was sure Sarina would love it. I am positive it made it home with me, because I remember taking it out of the bag in my living room. However, it was never to be seen again. I think it accidentally got thrown away somehow.

I've been thinking about it ever since, and arguing with myself about whether or not it's actually worth it to go back to the Disney store just to buy another antenna thingee. Finally, yesterday, I did. Walked in, told the cashier the story, and bought one more Minnie Mouse princess head thingee for $2.50.

Drove home and thought, "I'd better just stick this right on my antenna right now before I lose it again."

So I took out the thingee and walked around my car, and realized...





  1. Hahahaha! :-)

    If nothing else, buy one of those Nerf suction-cup "rockets" and stick it inside the back window of your car. ;-)

  2. It's better that way. I bought an antenna thingy for my truck. I can't tell you how many times I've smack a low lying branch or parking garage height bar (the antenna never fits) and then had to hop out and rescue my poor ball rolling away. I'm just glad I haven't beemed somebody with it, there have been times it's really taken flight. I know, it's pathetic that I feel the need to run after that darn thing to save it.

  3. Poor Jenna.... *snicker*

  4. ROFL - that's exactly the sort of thing I do from time to time! :D

  5. I wonder if you can assist me. I have no idea how to email you on blogger so I posted here, if that is all right.

    An established writer suggested I contact Powerhouse Publishing to publish my picture book. They charge $250 for a submission program, but PH does not state what the money is for, editing, advice, etc. Is this practice valid? I’m not familiar with fee-charging publishers. Thanks PS

  6. This is hilarious. I've had a similar moment, but as it would be odd for me to own any sort of foam antennae things (I'm not a mother, I'm a single 24-year old male), it was much a matter of thought rather than practice.

    I see the Disney foam antennae things (there must be a word for them!) every now and then, and for a brief moment, I considered what my car would look like with one.

    It was only that weekend while washing the car that I realised that I have no antennae either. Not a headdesk moment like yours, but it cracked me up.

    P.S. At the risk of making this an essay that you may never do more than sigh at, I'd like to say that I stumbled across Absolute Write a week or so ago and it's intrigued me immensely. I'm now trying to find your book so I can figure out how to leave my own personal torture rack that I call "work".

  7. Just stumbled upon your blog & love this post. Made me LOL.

  8. LMAO! Sounds like something I would do! We used to have a cool one USA Mickey Mouse one - someone stole it :(

  9. Hahahahahahahaa! =)

    Girl, that's really really funny!


Nice to hear your voice! Er... see your voice? See your text? Bah! You know what I mean.
