I am obsessed with staying hydrated. I think it's partially because I'm always talking about staying hydrated with my clients, and I don't want to be a hypocrite.

So, I carry around a camelbak water bottle. I bought it at Target. I still use my Nalgene, but I love the camelbak because you don't have to unscrew the lid. You just flip up the "straw," bite, and suck. It's the perfect adult sippy-cup.
Nice, right?

Sometimes I have a big mouth. It's been a problem (blessing?) since I was a small child. Things pop into my head and then they pop out of my mouth. So my cousin (13 years old) is goofing around and she pulls up her shorts to her armpits and I believe I say something like, "You better check yourself girl, you got a cameltoe." It just popped out! I couldn't stop it! In front of my entire family! Embarrassment! And laughter!

In case you were wondering that line is mis-quoted reference to this song, which was introduced to me by none other than Meg B.
(Sorry for the quality.)
(Sorry for the subject matter.)

Anyways, a few days later and I'm playing cards. I had to take a break to do something and when I got back to the table my brother and sister-in-law were just giggling up a storm. I thought they'd stacked the deck or something, but they swore up and down that they didn't. OK, fine.

We started playing and obviously they didn't do anything with the cards. Then I went to take a sip of water from my water bottle.
Then I knew what the giggling was all about.


  1. oh. i noticed it the other night. I thought you just liked toes... or something. shows how much I read.

  2. I have to say, I saw this one coming and I am not surprised by any of it.
