So, I received a text while I was at the park with my kids telling me I was going to do a quick call on the Dr. Drew show later in the day.
My nonchalant attitude towards it all should have been my first clue that it was not going to go my way.
“Perfect!” I said. It was going to be quick, I would be in comfort of my own home, it was over the phone so I could wear my pajamas and no one would know, and we would be talking about breastfeeding, but not about me! (We were discussing Gisele’s breastfeeding photo). I couldn’t have asked for more.
The day went on smoothly up until 1 minute before the call. I was on hold with the show and the boys came to me and asked for a snack…
Apples with peanut butter.
I didn’t even get to the peanut butter before I was on the air.
I rambled my way through the call while slicing some apples and taking orders from quiet little hungry boy voices in the background telling me I had taken out the wrong peanut butter.
As I went to correct my peanut butter mistake while I fumbled through my monologue…I said it…
As soon as it came out I started second-guessing whether that had come out of my mouth. It was too terrible.
I had some options.
- Impale myself with my peanut butter knife.
- Stop the thought and go back and correct myself.
- Pretend like nothing happened and keep on going…
I was in denial.
I decided to keep on going with my thought because my time was short.
I then immediately texted my friend to ask her to check if I said what I thought I had said.
She confirmed it and sent me a video back.
What did I say?
“Countries like Scandinavia”…
My husband responded pretty much like this:
And my Scandinavian mother?
And I just kept thinking of this….
