Kentuckiana thanksgiving.

Don't worry I won't bore you with too much Thanksgiving talk, sure there was plenty of food, I attended an Indiana football game, hung out with Brad's family, etc, etc. but that's old news now... we're on to bigger and better things like Christmas! Besides, I forgot my charger for my DSLR and my camera was dead the entire visit. Instead, what I do want to share with you are the two embarrassing things I did over my trip to Indiana. 

Embarrassing story number 1.
On the flight out to Indiana I had brought a CamelBak water bottle like this one. Well funny story, when water that is stuck in the straw mixes with cabin pressure, you might as well have a fire hose. I flipped up the straw to take a drink of water and it shot straight into my face...Not only did I get a water facial, but there was so much force the water shot up to the airplane ceiling.  There was water everywhere. In my hair, on the roof, all down my sweater. I still don't know how I managed to not drench the older gentleman sitting next to me, but I definitely think I got a few drops on the people in the seats behind me. My bad.

Brad did nothing, but laugh and I really couldn't blame him. I looked like a wet dog or pathetic cat. 


Embarrassing story number 2.
Every year Brad's family plays an annual sporting event for a trophy and all. Aunts, uncles, cousins all partake. They used to play flag football, but too many people were getting hurt. Brad made his mom and sister both cry in one game, not to mention the game his mom tore a muscle in her bicep.  Anyway, the past three years they have played soccer instead of football, because there is a little less chance of someone getting seriously injured....One would think anyway. Now see, I don't play soccer, never was on a youth team growing up, always played sports where you could use your hands. I dribble the ball with my hands, not my feet, ok?! I also only have two speeds when I kick a soccer ball, barely move it an inch or kick the shit out of it. Ball control is not something I pride myself on twss. Of course not long into the game I go to kick the ball and guess who's face happens to get in the way.... Yup, Brad's Loving Mother. wa wa wahhh.  I hit Brad's mother in the face with a soccer ball. I felt horrible. Although, I must say she took it like a champ. She is a stronger woman than I. 


So yeah, that about sums up my trip in a nut shell. We'll see if they ever invite me back. 

Cheers to being an asshat!

MY CAMELBACK BOTTLE DID THAT TO ME TOO!! not on an airplane. It was while I was standing in line at a restaurant. I was just going to get a sandwich and fill my water bottle up. It had been sitting my my truck (in July) all day and the heat did the same thing. I flipped it up out of habit, but it was facing straight forward so instead of soaking myself a jet stream of scalding hot water drenched the man in front of me. I was SO horrified. I still can barely talk about it.

1. The CamelBak story is pretty hilarious, I would have laughed pretty hard if I saw someone do that. Reminds me (kinda) of when I flew to Colorado for my bachlorette and we hit turbulence and I spilled my vodka soda on the little boy in front of me! Oops!

Soccerball to the face? That had to hurt!!

Karoline said...

You've got me sitting at my desk trying to hide my laughter...I think it's so funny that you hit her with the ball! Hopefully she took it well?

Anna said...

An asshat...hahaha! How do I always forget that one?
Those are both pretty embarrassing. At least you didn't break her nose or something though!!

Lauren said...

Your TWSS moment was perfection. And ouch! That is a Thanksgiving story that will be told for years to come in his family...

Kasey Lynne said...

Kenzie S said...

I couldn't help but laugh, really hard, at your stories! Thanks for sharing them :D

Nikki Mitchell said...

Forgive me for laughing but those are some crazy stories! But again they were all things you couldn't control. But I would advise not participating in any more soccer games lol.

Alyson said...

Literally LOLed reading that first story. I would totally do something like that and my husband would be doing nothing but laughing (which is okay because I would be doing the same thing).
