I Can't Even

Mrs. Hillbilly Mom's life is off course!

While walking down the 13 basement steps to my lair this afternoon, my SHAMING BRACELET ABANDONED ME!

That's right. The Fitbit-style doodad made by Garmin, that Genius gave me for Christmas, threw in the towel, and flung himself from my wrist right down those remaining 5 stairs, thumping on at least three of them.

Yes, Mrs. HM is such a loser that even her SHAMING BRACELET, whom she displeases daily by not meeting her goal five days out of seven...chose to jump from her wrist and hurl himself into oblivion (or at least onto the hard press-down tile of the basement concrete floor) rather than ride down the rest of the way strapped to her wrist.

Let the record show that on the band, there are two hard plastic prongs that fit into stretchy rubber slots, and a turny thing to keep the prongs latched in. I had pronged and latched as usual. Nothing was malfunctioning. Upon closer inspection after the fact, there was no damage to any part of the Shaming Bracelet. Even though it caught for a moment on the plastic bag handles of the Devil's Playground sack that I use to ferry down my drink cups, such an incident happens every single day. There was no reason for this sudden leap of non-faith.

This does not bode well for Mrs. HM.

I'm glad I skipped buying scratcher tickets today.

If you were still teaching, you'd make that step goal five days out of the week, I imagine...

A Shaming bracelet that's ashamed to be seen with you? That's just shameful (*~*)

Hillbilly Mom said...

Yes, I imagine I would. If only going to the faculty women's restroom hour after hour. And my room was the closest one to it!

I know! It's a darn cryin' shame, isn't it?

I hope my kids don't get me one of those!

Hillbilly Mom said...

Heh, heh! Genius actually thought he was doing me a favor, since I was hitting the driveway every evening for my walk. I've let that slide during the cold and messy weather. I need to get back into it, so the bracelet will have less chance to shame with with its BEEP and red line.

Or...he might have gotten a 2-for-1 deal through Garmin, and used it for my gift. Because he DID have one of his own. And I think they probably come in other colors besides black.
