If you think that two helmets are excessive then you missed the post about how toys get treated over here. *Kareem you will be missed*
As a side note: this picture is filed in my computer under weird stuff. For real.
Today while I was -- I don't know what I was doing, washing dishes maybe... Yeah, let's go with that because it makes me sound better then if I were, say, wiping boogers on my kids.
So today while I was washing dishes, my phone rang. I see a name I don't know on the caller ID and roll my eyes and answer it even though I'm sure it's a wrong number. We get a lot of bill collectors that call for the Stacy's. I don't know who they are, and I really wish they would stop giving my number out to their bill collectors. Although in all fairness it's kind of genius to give a fake number to people who want money from you. I'm sure those bill collectors will never find you, Cheryl and Thomas Stacy.
Anyway the conversation went something like this
Her: Hello, Bethany? This is Tracy. My mom is Lisa.
Me: (Still completely unsure who I'm talking to.) Oh hey.
Tracy: I need to do some field hours for school and I wondered how old Mallory is or what grade level she is.
Me: Um, she's 5, but she's working at a first grade level.
We discussed grade levels for a few minutes and then she went on to explain that she has to work with a child in the field of literacy and could she work with Mallory? At some point she actually says, "I know Mallory loves to see us." I agree, and she's coming over on Monday to work with Mallory. I'm not sure what they are going to do; Mallory is an excellent reader already.
Here's the thing: I STILL HAVE NO IDEA WHO THIS GIRL OR HER MOTHER ARE.
After we hung up I called my mom's house and spoke with both my parents and neither of them had any idea who Tracy was. I IMed Jessica, and still no one knows. I hope to God I recognize her when she knocks on my door on Monday. I really hope she's not an ax murderer. (Other forms of murderers are OK, but ax murderers I can't handle.)
I'm going to be so embarrassed if she reads this blog and shows up on Monday and mentions it.
