and more proof (as if you needed any) that i am a total loser

Me and Meg standing in Chapters:

“AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH MEGAN! I. HAVE. TO. HAVE. THIS.”

Dutiful daughter – rushing over… “what mama, what?”

“FINGER PUPPETS!” “Greatest writers of all time, FINGER PUPPETS!”

“Finger puppets?” *See eyeroll combined with pulling hair over her face trying to hide the fact she is with me.*

“Tolstoy, Shakespeare, Virginia Wolfe and Charles Dickens!!!!!!!!!! They are magnetic! It says right here on the box -“You can put them on your fridge when the show’s over!!” “HAAAAAAAAAAAAAaaaaaaaaaa!”

“Mama, you’re nuts.”

“Possibly, but I. WANT. THEM.”

*Suddenly the child reels in her laughter and get serious for a second …* “Mama, maybe you should think about it and wait for payday.” “You may not think these are so great tomorrow.” *Snicker, snicker*

“Maybe, but how much do you think would be tooooo much for finger puppets. Seriously.” *Both of us close to tears now …*

Seriously. Like as if I would suddenly have the need for finger puppets …. ok, fine I wouldn’t pay more than 25.00 bucks!”

“HA, they are 24.00!”

And that was it … we started laughing so hard we had to leave the store …


Minutes later … sitting at my desk… dreaming of finger puppets … dammit… I should have bought them!
