Why I'm A Better Mom In My Fantasy Life

Because in my fantasy life, Teen doesn't come to me before my morning coffee and proudly parade his Facebook page with beer quotes in front of me:


"Yes, madam, I am drunk. But in the morning I will be sober and you will still be ugly.

Winston Churchill 

It takes only one drink to get me drunk. The trouble is, I can't remember if it's the thirteenth or the fourteenth.
George F. Burns 

I feel sorry for people who don't drink. When they wake up in the morning, that's as good as they're going to feel all day.
Frank Sinatra 

And in my fantasy life, Teen doesn't laugh in my face when I lecture him on how things he posts on the internet for the world to see could effect how people think of him or even his chances for getting a decent job. 

And in my fantasy life, I'm not a Hypocrite Mom who posts things on the internet for the world to see that could effect how people think of me or even my chances for getting a decent job.

And in my fantasy life, I certainly don't own a t-shirt like this:

I'm still trying to get past the fact that the Internet is so very, very public.

But wait. I don't care.

Life without beer would be a sad, sad, existence.

If I only had a quarter for every time I've wanted to post 'It's Margarita Thirty' as my facebook status- or 'Overserved'- or 'My cheeks are light'- I would either be very wealthy, or be able to afford to permanently see double. :)

Here's what I don't understand about the employer thing on facebook- Don't you have to accept them as friends in order for them to view your information?

The internet is probably (quite likely)(oh, definitely) the reason I make slightly more than minimum wage.

mmmm... beer....

That Benjamin Franklin quote is one of my favorite things of all time, right there alongside Kaiser Wilhelm's "Give me a woman who loves beer, and I will conquer the world."

Candice said...

So it's safe to say that your kiddo likes beer.

Why can't they get the morning coffee thing? Why must they taunt us?

Cat said...

I think I might actually a better mom in real life than is my fantasy life. That is pretty sad.

Honeybell said...

Ha! I have that quote framed on my kitchen wall!

Chris Wood said...

Good luck shagging up. Better than shagging down!

Jeff said...

You might be a better mom in your fantasy life, but not nearly as entertaining.

Wait...where's the bar?

Sounds to me like your fantasy life is not quite as interesting as your real life. Post on!

Like mother, like son, eh? No big dramas, you're not talking about government overthrow or anything!
