A Story Worth Sharing

This is a story worth sharing.


Today my mom called to tell me this story and I laughed until I cried.


Maxton (my nephew) loves trash trucks, but due to the fact that he goes to school with my mom every morning he never gets to see the truck.

So Monday morning my mom was off school, getting ready for the day when she heard the trash truck coming.

So excited that Maxton was going to get to see the truck, she ran as fast as she could, scooped Maxton up and took him outside so that he could see the trash truck.


She told Maxton to wave to the trash-men. He waved, and they waved back very excitedly. She thought to herself, we have the nicest trash-men ever.


It was at this point that she realized, in all of her excitement to get Maxton outside to see the truck she had forgotten an important item of clothing.


Her shirt.

So there she was in sweat pants and a bra greeting the trash men.


It was probably the highlight of their day.


The things grandma's will do for their grand-babies!

OMG ROTFLMAO! Once I was getting on a plane and I was really late (this was back in the early 90s when you didn't have to be there hours early). I was the LAST person on the plane and seated way at the back. As I walked through I was getting many smiles and looks from several guys. When I sat down I realized the top on my one piece shorts set was unbuttoned about three buttons down. As I was running through the airport trying not to miss my plane while carrying my carry on bag my buttons came unbuttoned exposing my bra for everyone to see! lol
