Go Ahead, Laugh With Me

Just please, please, please, don’t laugh at me. That is all.

We drove up to Chesterfield Sports Fusion tonight right at 5pm. We pulled in right behind an untagged white Chevy Traverse and I was all, “Cool – looks just like the photo I posted on my blog.”

We pulled in closer to our entrance and low and behold: a fleet of rolling billboards, just waiting to be escorted home by six mommy bloggers. Yes, I just agreed to drive a billboard-sized advertisement around town for an entire month.

Yes I did.

OH MY WORD. Seriously?

Here I am, standing next to my new ride, in all its auto-wrapped glory:

Me, Next to Drivable Billboard

You want to see some Mommy Madness? I’ve got your Mommy Madness right here:

So. Seriously? This is going to be one big kick in the head for the next 30 days. I guess it’s time to learn to live with a little bit of public attention. Because I have a feeling I’m in for some of that. Just a little bit.

As the ride home was filled with three pseudo-whammies (new ride, nighttime, and rain), I didn’t exactly fiddle with all the cool gizmos and gadgets this thing is souped up with. But when the windows started fogging up after I pulled onto the highway, I first panicked, then quickly found the defrost button. WHAMO. Just like that the windows were clear.

I think I’m already in love.

Friends, if this does nothing else, it will for sure kick-start me back into semi-regular blog posting. I’m going to need some kind of therapy at the end of each day.

    That would be a shocker, but what an adventure! You’ll have lots of fun … and can’t you just imagine sitting around the table at Christmas when your grownup daughters tell your grandchildren about grandma being a famous Mommy Madness blogger back in the day?

    (snort) I want one of those, advertisments and all, just to embarrass my kids in. What a thrill that would be! Does it have that new car smell?? MMMmmmm….

    This is awesome! Your comfort zone is being stretched, eh?
    I have a friend who drove around in a similar car with a billboard for $1,000. Hey.
    Enjoy your next month. I think you are lucky to be chosen and I wish I could vote for you.

    don’t you just love it when you get shoved kicking and screaming out of your comfort zone?:) the bribe of a new car for a month is a nice one…even for an introvert…too funny. it’s good you have a great sense of humor.

    (I just wanted to say:
    Your comment regarding blog conferences left at Like a Warm Cup of Coffee?
    Brilliant… and echoed my heart.
    Thank you for encapsulating it so well….)
    All’s grace,
