Picture This

Me and Kelly. Friday afternoon. Alone in the lobby of the local Orem Jiffy Lube for Bernice's well-deserved oil change. There is a loverly TV for my amusement. I find something that peeks my interest. Queer Eye for the Straight Guy. Love that show. 5 gay men helping a sadly dressed straight man. Beautiful concept. In walks in a Mom with 3 toddler-ish aged kids.

Kelly: "Mom, don't you think we should change the channel to something more, uh, kid friendly?"
Me: "What's wrong with this show? Fine, change it if you want to." (As I'm thinking *whatever, I was totally here first. I pick the show. Fair's fair.*)

Kelly changes the channel to Disney.

Mom of the 3 kids: "Thanks for changing the channel. My kids love Disney."
Kelly: "Yeah, sure thing. Sorry about Mom is kinda weird."

Good thing Kelly is the voice of reason in my life. Where would I be without her?

Ha. I love this story. "Sorry my mom is weird." Same thing Kylie tells people all the time.
