Have you ever been completely #SheetOutOfLuck? I have… About 2 hours from home, in the car.
My son was recovering from a nasty stomach bug. Jeremy was driving and we were trying our best to amuse 4.5 year old Gabe.
I will be frank, Jeremy can be crude at times. I’m not sure why someone with a Ph.D finds fart jokes so amusing.
Jeremy asked Gabe to pull his finger, which he did several times, but there was no noise to let Gabe know it was a successful pull.
Gabe, in a very scolding tone, said, “Jeremy you didn’t fart.”
Jeremy replies, “You just didn’t hear it.”
“Was it invisible?” Gabe asked.
Without blinking, Jeremy replied, “I sure hope so.”
I erupted into laughter, but it turned out to be short lived.
Gabe asked Jeremy to pull his finger in return.
I knew that was a bad idea, but before I could get out the word “no!”, #SheetHappened.
Gabe burst into tears, and I was trying to comfort him while scolding Jeremy. It turns out Gabe wasn’t quite over his bug, and as Jeremy likes to say, it was an electric fart–it had juice.
We were in the middle of nowhere with no toilet paper and no underwear. Well, none that we hadn’t already been wearing.
We were completely #SheetOutOfLuck.
The closest gas station restroom had one stall, one ply toilet paper, and no trash can (ew!!!).
We headed back to the car with slightly soiled underwear feeling a little less than dignified, vowing to never leave home without toilet paper again. And we have started to abide by Jeremy’s uncle Wally’s longstanding advice: never trust a fart.
It wasn’t my “shining moment” as a mother.
While I was participating in my #SheetHappens interview Patrick Quinn from Life of Dad snuck around and snapped this photo. I am anxious to see the video that we recorded, and thankful that my son is only 4.5 years old (I’m pretty sure I would face some form of retaliation if he was just a bit older).
The booth was a great way to get BlogHer attendees talking about those embarrassing moments when you are #SheetOutOfLuck. I had no problem talking #sheet that day! My son loved his “tiny little toilet” and every loved the free toilet paper coupons, we are all stocked up to move into our new home.
