a tale of boobies and buttons

A funny moment to share from this morning.

It is Spring Break here, which means 3 busy kids at home to entertain. I had just stole away to hop into the shower, when 30 seconds later, Big G comes running into to bathroom, "Mom, come quick come quick!" My hair was full of shampoo but I assumed they had somehow taken their unsupervised minute to set the house on fire, so I dashed out of the shower, threw my robe on loosely and a towel over my head, and ran downstairs like a bat out of hell.

To the foyer. Where the front door was wide open.

With the post person standing there, package in hand.

Thank goodness it was a "she".

"She" may or may not have seen a flash of my boobies.

I am sure neither "she" nor I will ever speak of it.

After an awkward moment had passed, I signed the required forms to collect my small package of heaven. Buttons! All the way from Thailand! Gorgeous wooden gems, some of which will be getting a starring roll on my Golden Wheat cardigan, which is FINISHED!!!!!!!!


Off to sew them on, will show the sweater soon. I am expecting a full on parade for finally finishing this beast, so get your best comments of praise ready, I will have no shame in asking for them ;)

Debbie DeBaeremaeker said...

haha- oh boy!! thats crazy.

Im glad you can laugh at it and that you got buttons from it too!

Karin said...

OMG too funny! At least it was a delivery and not the 7th Day Adventists or something. The package can take your mind off the accidental 'flash' at least :)

I am sure that is one of the perks of a mailworker's job, and probably in their contracts!

Nothing like a little boobie flash to start your day. The buttons are gorgeous. Totally worth it.

Shay said...

GORGEOUS buttons. Totally worth flashing yourself at the post gal for.

You know that the whole delivery room at the mail centre was talking about you yesterday right?

Bobbi said...

Those buttons are fantastic! Surely they're worth the embarrassment. ;) I can't wait to see them on the cardigan.

Lily said...

You could have at least included a photo of 'her' at your door, completely flustered at your brazen appearance! :) Enjoy your buttons and thanks as always for your comments on my blog - did I mention lately you're very sweet? :)

Natalie said...

OMG, once again I am totally laughing out loud as I read your post. I LOVE the buttons-- they were clearly worth a little boob flash! Can't wait to see the sweater!

Leila said...

Oh, kids! Love the buttons.

Julie said...

LOL! I'm sure she has all kinds of great stories from package deliveries but this one is so funny! It's worth it for those fabulous buttons though.

Turtlegurl said...

Ha ha!! I love reading your blog, you are hilarious and sound like my best friend.

J-Money said...

I love that you never said anything about it not being a real emergency. Buttons from Thailand sound like an emergency to me. If your mail person is anything like ours you would have had to tough it out and wait a day or more before they would have tried to deliver them again.

Jacey said...

My party hat is ready for your parade! Also, your boob story is full-on hilarious!

Tawny said...

Hahaha oh you always make me laugh. It's a little cold in Winnipeg to have the front door wide open when you have wet hair. Yipes! Nipply hehehe.

Anyway, the buttons are gorgeous!
