I Got Busy This Weekend!
Ok, I really am a dork!
Last week, I saw a shirt at Old Navy that I just had to have.
It's slogan was a slogan that I use often..."Get busy".
At home, if the kids are watching tv or on the computer, they are sure to hear, "You need to stop what you're doing and get busy."
At school when I'm substituting, I tend to be a broken with the kids..."Please stop talking, and get busy."
When I'm taking the dogs out I say, "Come on boys, you need to get busy and go poo-poo."
So, when I was out shopping and saw this shirt, I just knew that I had to have it.
Yesterday, after the funeral, I threw on the shirt with a pair of jeans and headed to the soccer fields. My nephew happened to be playing in this tournament, so I stopped by his game first.
My sister took one look at me and said, "Oh my gosh, EE, what are you wearing?
I was pretty proud of myself for selecting this hip little number, and replied, "What's wrong with what I'm wearing?"
Sis: It says, Get Busy.
Me: I know, what's wrong with that?
Sis: EE, when you get busy, you are...
Me (finally figuring out what she's insinuating): NO WAY!
I am always the first one to turn the innocent into something sexy, and I did not think that!
The shirt did not say Gettin' Busy...it said Get Busy.
After discussion with a few other parents that were sitting around, I convinced myself that the shirt simply meant what it said.
Fastforward through three more soccer games and two baseball practices, to the 80's roller skating party for our middle schoolers from church. Too tired to change out of my attire, but still wanting to get into the spirit of the party, I teased my bangs, threw the rest of my hair up in the side pony tail, donned great big dangly earrings, loaded up on the blue eyeshadow, and headed to the roller rink with the kids at 9:30pm.
It hit me in the car...OMG, I am going to a pre-teen church event, and I may be wearing a shirt with a suggestive expression printed for all to see.
It was too late to turn around and go change, AND, I'd already exposed my t-shirt to probably a couple hundred kids during the day, so I continued on...
At the party, I asked Lynne, one of the 23 year old youth leaders, what she thought my shirt meant. She went on to confirm it with a few others, that, yes,get busy probably meant what I had always thought gettin' busy implied.
Anyway, they were very cool, and gave me a hard time about it all night. I may never live this little episode down!!!
What do you all think?? Does get busy equal gettin' busy, or does everyone else just have their heads in the gutter (teehee)?
