Mama Kat prompt...Who me embarrassed? Hell Yes

I haven't done a prompt over at Mama Kat's in a while and decided I might as well do an embarrassing one lol. So I will start with Mama Kat's prompt.

5.)Describe a moment you felt embarrassed by your parents.

My parents split up when I was around 3. I ended up with my VERY YOUNG mom. So please enjoy the following mom story. (And let me tell you when you have a mother like mine you have a lot of these moments.)

My mother and I were at the grocery store grabbing some produce for a salad we needed to make for a family gathering. I was on one side of the produce while she was on the other side. I was choosing lettuce and tomatoes and the only thing my mom was getting was cucumbers.
It is best not to give my mother more then one thing to do at a time or she gets confused or distracted by sparkly shit and forgets what she is doing.
So I am standing there with my head of lettuce in my hand when I hear really really loudly....
Oh crap my mother is yelling across the store at me. I hate this.....
I turned towards my mother and pantomimed "What?"
People are staring at us now. I can feel my face getting warm.
My mother then holds up two of the largest cucumbers I have ever seen in my life and yells across the store....
I swear to you my face started to burn. People's heads were flipping back and forth between my mother, me and the two giant cucumbers. I was freaking mortified. If I could have slunk out of the store at that moment I would have.
I kind of waved my hands at my mother as I shoved the lettuce in a bag. I kept my head down as I walked over to her and grabbed the damn cucumbers and shoved them in a bag while speaking so softly my mother asked me what I said twice.
"They are fine mom"
It wasn't until we were in the car that I turned to her and asked her what the hell was wrong with her.
She had no idea what I was talking about.
When I explained it to her, her face turned red and she told me to get the hell out of the parking lot.

I was so freaking mortified that day.


  1. OH No!!!! LOL I would have died in your shoes!!! This was funny, hehehehe

  2. I would have DIED! My mother was so prim and proper though. Thanks for the comment!

  3. That has got to be the freakin funniest post I have read in a long time! I even burst out laughing! I might just have to follow you!

  4. Ha! Your mom sounds like a hoot! Good luck with the job search, too. It bites, I know all too well. And, yes, peanut butter slices are WAAAAY too indulgent, in my opinion. Seriously.

  6. That's an awesome story!! I laughed out loud the moment I got to "Do you think these are big enough for tonight?"!!!
