If Anyone Needs Me I'll be Under the Table

Take it from Hula that extra second or two that it takes to double check the phone number you’re texting is worth it.

Last night Teen Angel was on a date. I texted her , telling her to alert me when she was on her way home so I could put on more clothing before she and the new beau came into the house. I did this because back in March she brought the last boyfriend into the house unexpectedly one night when I was in my pajamas, and I spent thirty minutes in conversation with the boy with an open book slapped across my chest so he wouldn’t realize that underwear is not always a priority in our home.

When my phone dinged with a reply last night, I clicked on it to find, to my horror, a message from the youth minister at church letting me know that I had sent HIM the message about the clothing, and he was pretty sure it wasn’t meant for him. Apparently, he had sent me a message about bible school earlier, and I had opened it up without realizing it when I was composing the underwear note to Teen Angel. Great Gertie! My face hasn’t been that red since that unfortunate Playgirl pinup in the locker incident my senior year of high school.

While the youth minister jokingly threatened to work this into an upcoming sermon, all I could think was that if that dadgum Eve had just eaten something ANYTHING other than an apple this clothing thing would not be an issue.

ROTFL...that is too funny. I would love to hear that sermon if it ever takes place!

I'm trying to think how this could be more embarrassing but I'm not sure how. Messaging that to your boss, maybe???

Anyway, I will be extra careful. Thanks for the warning!

That is too funny. That definitely clasifies as an embarassing moment. At least the youth pastor could not see your blushing face!

Jejejejejejejejejejeeeeeee........

Is he a cranky pants or does he see the humour in the whole thing?

He'll be able to go out to dinner with the other ministers on this one...

So glad it wasn't the minister's wife who read the text. There might have been some 'splanin' to do.
At least when the boyfriend came over, you had on pj's.

P.S. Yes, there is another Pioneer Woman Cooks cookbook waiting to be given away.
Not sure when the next contest will be, but will let you know.
