Not Me! Monday: BRUTAL honesty

Welcome to the blog circus courtesy of MckMama's creative genius. Here we write all about what we HAVEN'T been doing this week because it, in a way, makes us feel like we're not alone in our idiosyncrasies.

I did NOT whittle my inbox from 989 emails to 17. No, I would NEVER allow my inbox to become that overgrown so it took an entire morning to clear it! NOT me!

I did NOT request a personal half day just so I can go see Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince at midnight on July 15th. Who would be so irresponsible?

And what's more, I am most certainly NOT currently on week two of three short work weeks in a row. On the subject of vacation, my life is so cool that I would NEVER spend a vacation day to have a colonoscopy a week from today. NOT me! I will NOT be writing my Not Me! Monday post in an anesthesia-induced reverie next week.

I was NOT so insensitive that the words, "I would have been sadder if it was Elton John," came from my lips before I had the chance to word-vomit censor my conversation about MJ with co-workers. I did NOT have to fumble some semblance of a recovery to salvage what heart I had left. "I, um, only went through one MJ phase, but I've been through nineteen Elton John phases. Yeah!"

Who would put me in charge of watching the volunteers' kids while they worked VBS? I would NEVER choose the safe air-conditioned job over the 110-degree heat. I would take one for the team instead of eating Goldfish and laughing so hard with a totally awesome 14-month-old girl, 2-year-old boy, and 3-year-old boy.

My French toast attempts always turn out well. I did NOT have to heed my cousin's advice and tell my husband I had turned his favorite breakfast into fried bread pudding! I DON'T fail. I am a domestic diva and culinary creative genius. My kitchen is my haven where I do NOT fail!

Last but not least, in the spirit of MckMama, I did NOT almost use the MSC acronym in a press release I wrote about a woman with 3 kids under 2! (Adopted, then had twins!)

What HAVEN'T you been up to lately?


  1. Oh MckMama...I'm always thinking in acronyms now!

  2. I too did NOT have to delete over 900 emails from my inbox. And I NEVER almost refer to the man I married as DH in conversations! Hope you have a great week!!
