Secret Shames

Alright...inspired by my friend Melissa, I am writing down my three Secret Shames. These are the things I will admit and then, depending on reactions, take stock of who my true friends are.

Secret Shame #1: I like to listen to the Beastie Boys really loud while cruising in the Jeep. I wish I had a nice car stereo so I could play it louder. Yes, my secret shame is that I wish I were a gangster sometimes. ("Can I get some action from the back section?")Secret Shame #2: The kids run wild through the streets, often in pajamas and without their hair fixed. I will usually choose a picnic on the front lawn over housekeeping, and last night, I finally rolled into bed at 1:30.

Secret Shame #3: For the first time ever, I just spent over $100 for a pair of jeans. It's something I never thought myself capable of doing...and now I've gone and done it. My consolation: they're flippin' sweet!

Hooray for picnics and letting the kids run wild! I don't think you have anything too shameful! Does that mean I am still counted as a friend? :)

AmShaZam said...

Awesome. Of course! But now you have to make your own list...

Joe and Melissa Vega said...

Yayyyyy! I love it! I'm proud of you for spending money on good jeans. It is a good feeling. And they will feel so rewarding every time you wear them. Are they Hudsons? But come on you knew out of everyone that I would hardly think that is a shame:) The Beastie Boys one doesn't surprise me either. I still remember on a youth conference you singing Warren G-Regulator:) Love ya!

AmShaZam said...

Yes, they're Hudsons- and you know me too well!

I just want you to know that I am truly appalled at your lack of responsibility!! Ha ha ha!!

Let's first take the jeans. While I could never spend that amount of money on a pair of jeans I probably would've, at some point, spent that much on a pair of shoes. Of course, I view clothes as disposable at this point since they usually don't last long without grimy, greasy fingerprints and spills all over from my chillins. Even shoes at this point are disposable since my feet keep growing every time I pop out a baby!! Anyway, if I judged you for spending money on clothes, I really don't think I'd have many friends as it seems you all are shoppers! I remind Ben often that he should feel lucky to have me as my wife.

Next point, the whole neglecting housework and letting your kids run amuck. Now, if I neglect housework, I go crazy because I am crazy. So I can't agree with you there. As for the kids running around in pajamas I can't even say a word. My kids constantly run around in their underwear for an entire year of potty training. I know you've seen them.

Oh, and then the Beastie Boys! I'm right with you there! You might recall I met my hubby through a hip hop group that I was a total groupie for! I've always been a closet gangsta! The only difference between me and you is that I'm driving around in a mini-van now so I'm not nearly as cool as you!!

So, you were right, I do find we are very alike. You can definitely count me as a true friend. Love ya!

P.S. I used to have lizards named Adrock, MCA, and Mike D. and a fish named Warren G.!!
