Not Me Monday!

August 17th, 2009

It’s that time again. That’s right — bring on another round of “Not Me Monday.” Thanks to MckMama who hosts this fabulous blog carnival. You can check out what she hasn’t been up to and survey the hundreds (we’re talking multiple hundreds) of other participants in the carnival here.

So last week I did not have an hour to kill before a dreaded meeting for which I definitely did not need a major caffeine boost. Therefore, I did not succumb to the allure of a ridiculously overpriced iced chai from Starbucks. Then I certainly did not smuggle it into the nearby Borders (in my purse) and proceed to sip secretively while browsing through a stack of books I had no intention of buying. I would never do that.

And in parenting news, I did not violate the number one rule of diaper changing by turning around to grab a toy for Miss Mouse to play with. So I definitely did not turn back just in time to see her launch herself off the changing table and onto the floor. In the aftermath, I did not contemplate whisking her to the nearest emergency room (even though I was the only one crying by that point) because I am not an alarmist. Nope, not me.
