NaBloPoMo | Day 27: Conversations In The Car

While driving my 16 year old son, JCH, to the mall for his new job, the following conversation happened.


Me: “Why is that lady walking her four year old child in the middle street? Especially when there’s a sidewalk right there?”

JCH: “Mom, you’re wearing Hello Kitty Pajamas, you have a cigarette hanging out of your mouth, and you haven’t showered in two days. I don’t really think you’re in a position to be giving advice to anyone.”

Me: “Oh.” *hangs head in shame * “You’re probably right. I’ll shut up now.”


Well played, Whosteen.

  • I think Meleah going out in pajamas is quite normal. Isn’t it? 🙂

    Oooh. You got served. That’s one smart ass kid there.

  • Ouch.

    As the saying goes:
    People who live in glass houses should not throw stones.

  • Sure, you can point out the obvious…woman is being fu**** stupid being in the road with a child. So now we have a very SMART, OBSERVANT woman in the car, in her pajamas with a cigarette hanging out of her mouth. Oh and with her is a very funny teenager.

    I just hate it when my kids do that shit to me 🙂 Still makes no sense to walk in the middle of the road, I mean seriously and if you are not going anywhere why not where Hello Kitty Pajamas,wait, what if the car broke down,see these are the things that make me get in the shower and put makeup on before I get in the car, like my car has ever broken down but just in case, you never ever know 🙂

  • Abby Normal

    I dunno, I think you’re still one up on the mom in the street!

  • Totally!

  • I really did get served!

  • He’s so damn quick witted! I didn’t even have a come back.

  • Apparently!


    Thank you!


  • Right? WHO DOES THAT?!

  • shadowrun300

    You gotta love the quick wit! Takes the sting out of “being served”! Abby’s right, though. You still got one up on the mom in the street!
    Sometimes when I drop my kids off at school – I’m still in my t-shirt “pajamas” with a blanket wrapped around me for warmth. My kids have yet to ask me to drop them off a block from school though!

  • HeSaidHisTelephoneNumberWas911

    Yup, JCH reminds me of my son at that age (well, still) with every story you share. I’d bet you’ve got more on the ball on your worst day, than she does on a good week. PJs and all.

  • Ahahahhahahah! I’ve gone to my son’s High School in Pajamas. But NO ONE CARED ­ seems as though the kids go to HS in jammies too.

  • Awww. I love you, Jimmy!

  • AH HA HA HA HA HA HA HA !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I wish you could have been here with me when I read this…. so you could see me laugh outloud and scare the dog sitting on my bed. I LOVE what your son said… and those words were out of love too LOL! We are what we are. And you know what, I would do ANYTHING for adult sized Hello Kitty jammies… you are so small yours probably aren’t adult? Or do they make adult? (I assume we won’t talk about the last time you shaved your pits?)

  • Ahahahahhahaa.

    They are adult sized pjs!


  • For what it’s worth, I think the pajamas, smoke and lack of personal hygiene totally justifies you giving people advice. 🙂

  • Thank you, Nicky!
    For always being on MY team!

  • Well, your pajama pants, lack of showering and cigarette smoking pretty much just affect you. That mom’s lack of common sense was TOTALLY affecting her little child!

  • That’s what I’m saying!

  • ladyV

    ahahaha. funny. i too hate people who walk in the freaking street and with young kids when there is a perfectly good sidewalk for them to use. i don’t like for runners to do it either, but sometimes i do, but when cars come if i can get on the sidewalk i do.

  • She was really dumb having her kid in the street like that.

  • Hahaha. Sounds like a great character from a book or movie. Love it!
