Next time, I'm wearing pants.

I live next to a movie theater.

I could walk...but you guys know me better than that. I always hitch a ride.

A few weeks ago, a bunch of The Wives went to a late night movie. Since it was so late, I assumed everybody would dress comfortably, and I wore my pajamas.

....Yeah. Either their PJ's are a whole lot trendier than mine, or I somehow missed the "dress up as cute as possible" memo.

There's something you should know about me. If you have some kind of crazy scheme, and you need a partner in crime? I'm the one to come to.

Just ask The Pirate.

I can't say no to a crazy idea.

So when everybody piled into 2 cars for the ride back, and we started racing, and Amber shouted "Moon them Helena!" you know what I did.

I'm not proud of it.

No, I didn't pull my pants down. But I did stick my butt out the window and dance around a little.

"Oh my gosh!" "Niiiice" "Is that Helena?" I heard from the other car.

"Quick! Roll up the window! Roll up the window!" I cried, diving onto the floor. "I don't want them to know it was me!"

The other girls in my car were dying of laughter.


"But Helena, you're the only one wearing pajama pants!"

...Oh yeah. Huh.

"Tami! Lets switch pants!"

She didn't go for it.

And I? Now have a reputation that I am kind of proud ashamed of, and I think I gave the new girls the wrong impression of me.

Or, rather, the right impression, which I was hoping to reveal gradually, and only after they are familiar with my good points.

It's like college all over again.

I just hope they respect me in the morning.

(If you are curious about my college promiscuity, you can read this post. And for an extremely awkward story about my Dad walking in on me and a guy in bed, you can go here.)

I think that them thinking of you are a tramp is a much better reputation.

I would definitely have been wearing pj pants right along with you.

at least there isnt a photo of your butt tagged on fb right now!

Lauren said...

haha Maybe if you'd gone for the full moon they wouldn't have recognized?

Hey, I would have gone with comfy clothes, too...and if that's your definition of promiscuity, then man, you should hear some stuff from my college, you're good, you're good...

If we could've taken our camera out fast enough, there would've been a picture of your butt on my blog. I think it's good that you just let the new girls know what to expect of you right away;) no gimmics. I think it's great that you don't always care what other people think.
I used to be a lot more goofy and silly in high school and college. Adam didn't seem to have a problem with it... until we got married. What's up with that? So now he just rolls his eyes when I'm being silly. Now I just feel weird sometimes being silly which means I'm becoming an OLD MOM. boo

That is awesome!! You go girl that is all I have to say :) A pretend semi-moon is nothing to be ashamed of. Thanks for the laugh.

beka said...

Honey, I love the look of your pj pants....
Ha, that is something I would totally do someday. --The wearing them to the theater with girlfriends, not the mooning... I'm just not that daring!! LOL
You're totally cute though.

Sara Strand said...

Oh dang. Well if your pants weren't down.... it totally doesn't count. At least where I come from. It's all or nothing baby. ;)

Okay, I swear, there is no casual anymore. I say casual, I mean just BARELY good enough for Walmart. Everyone I know wears casual and looks all cute and irritating.
I would have mooned em just because they looked all cute.
But, that being said, you DO look adorable in your jammies.

k, what? who even wears clothes to a late night movie???

oh and how come your hair looks so good when you have jammies on? lame!!! i would have been completely pajama'd out, including ugly face and hair!

Mama Mary said...

LOVE YOU! This post took me back to mooning people out the back window of the school bus coming home from field trips or volleyball games. Good times. Def something to be proud of!

Haha... you like it :-P They have exactly the right impression of you, because you're fun and spontaneous and they all wish they could be more like you. I'm serious.

Also, I would have work\n pjs too :-)
