Remember when....

I'm going to start a new fad right now. This is groundbreaking I tell you....groundbreaking.
Ok, not really. BUT I am starting a new thing on my blog called REMEMBER WHEN?
I always think of funny things that happened in the past, but I never write them down because they're just random. Usually they'll just be short little stories that are pretty much only funny to me and those who were there....but I'd like to remember them. So I'm going to write them down, and you'll just have to suffer through them. Hey, it's my blog and I write what I want!

Yesterday while I was helping my mutha decorate her tree, I remembered a really awesome tree decorating incident from back when I was 6 years old.

We had softball size bulbs for our tree and I thought it was AmAzInG that I could see my reflection in them. I was making all sorts of dashing-ly funny faces in this bulb, laughing all the way HA HA HA (did you catch that? Yess). At one point I started opening my mouth really wide just to see what that little hangy down thing in the back of my mouth looked like in a bulb. I'm pretty sure that at this point something possessed my 6 year old body, because I got the sudden urge to bite the glass bulb...and I did it. Who in their right mind does that?? Honestly! You can guess what happened next. The bulb shattered into millions of pieces all over in my mouth and I thought I was going to die....literally. How did I get it out, you ask? This next part is ingenious! My mom got out the VACUUM, put an attachment on the hose, and sucked my mouth out! How disgusting/germ ridden is that?? Yet completely clever! Props to my mom for saving my life that day via the vacuum.
