It’s True Story Tuesday y’all! Time to share our old or new stories of something amazing, outrageous, hilarious, miraculous and (mostly) true that has happened to you! We make it easy… just grab the TST code from the sidebar, and link up the web address of your actual post below, … we’ll send some linky love your way!
This one goes back to almost exactly a year ago. To set the scene, you can read Mr. Daddy’s version of it here. Long story short… some big dudes were changing a tire at a gas station, and one of ‘em had a bit of a (ahem) wardrobe malfunction.
Longtime readers know this story well… since they wouldn’t let me live it down for the longest time.
The lesson learned was that you should always have a camera with ZOOM… and not rely on a puny little cell phone when the image requires stealth and a safe distance. Otherwise, as in this case… the big dude might catch you trying to take a picture of his bare naked butt.
Without further ado -the rest of the story…
(0riginally posted here.)
Okay, this has gone on far too long…
Mr. Daddy decided to post that lovely little story about his sweet wifey poking her head out the window, then leaning out and angling for a better shot of a total stranger’s mostly naked bum.
Then getting totally busted by the other guy who was with him.
Then their suddenly hurried exit from the gas station lot when they realized just how big those two mad dudes were.
(At the risk of obliterating any respect you might hold for me - if you haven’t read his post, I'll wait right here for ya.)
So let me lay it out for y'all. I know you’ve already heard it from Mr. Daddy, but it bears some explaining. Cuz, man this story has been spreading like wildfire around here!
You know what…?
I got nothin’
It happened just like Mr. Daddy said it did.
No sense in trying to explain it.
Cuz I cannot for the life of me, figure out why I though it was even remotely a good idea to try to capture that sight on a cellphone camera… or any camera for that matter.
I mean, how do you even apologize for that?
To make matters worse… Dear Husband sits down at my family’s table on Thanksgiving and says,
Rach asked me for my phone so she could take a picture of a stranger’s naked butt.
(I crack myself up with these hearing loss puns)
As one, my entire family is speechlessly looking at Mr. Daddy in horrified interest.
I AM SO MORTIFIED
My mouth turns to Play-doh and nothing intelligible comes out.
Then my aunt’s sweet naïve mother says in her 100% Italian voice (you know, with one eyebrow raised), “WHAAAAAAT?”
There is no place to hide, and I’m not giving up my seat for the game of Spoons.
“mumble mumble, there was this guy, mumble, full moon, mumble mumble, camera”
Everyone has even stopped eating - so shocking is this piece of news. So Mr. Daddy tells the tale in all his mock indignation and leaves the entire extended family with not a single hope for my corrupted soul.
I survive the brutal re-enactments and head home. To wake up to Mr. Daddy’s creative genius in print. On our blog. You know, the one I used to put my best foot forward on?
And the comments are UNBELIEVABLE.
I read two of them and realize they are another husband-wife team. I chuckle loudly until I reach the last line of the husband’s comment.(Wife)
Okay, if you open your windows you will hear my muffled laughs as I was reading this delightful story...and I am trying to keep my composure since Dw is taking an afternoon snooze on the couch not 10 feet from me giggling into the palm of my hand...What is up with men like that anyway? Can they not feel a breeze whisking its way down their cheeks?? Come on dudes! Stop grossing out the entire world! Loved it and still smirking...can't wait till he wakes up and I can read it to him...
You "crack" me up! I'm still trying to "wipe" the smile off my face. Linny was just giggling as she read it to me. I am so very thankful your wife didn't have a zoom lens! I’m sure they were hoping not to be the "butt" of your jokes. I'm still trying to figure out how to work this into tomorrow's message... maybe a title like, "Showing your best side butt don't let your guard down."
When I got to that last line, I felt the color drain out of my face. If you know this couple, they are the fabulous ones from A Place Called Simplicity.
The part that scared the bejeebies out of me, is that this man is a
P A S T O R.
And somehow my temporary insanity is going to mean that someday at some pastors’ conference, they’re gonna talk about the 14 different versions of that “girl trying to take a picture of a guy’s backside with her husband’s phone” story.
And ya know what? I’m okay being the “butt” of that joke.
Tell me you’ve done something far more outrageous… all for the sake of a blog post, right? :)
