Oh who are the people in your neighborhood?

The other day Mia was singing this song in the bathtub and all of the sudden I hear "Oh the devil is a person in your neighborhood." At the time I never realized that she was talking about me.

Last night while the rest of my family was at the MRCC New Year's party I was at home hugging the toilet and sleeping on the bathroom floor (And no, I was not hung over, I am a proper ministers wife after all. I am hung over now though, but I promise it is just from the vomit and the drugs....must find more drugs...)

Okay, I'm back.

Some time in between sleep and vomiting I heard girls yelling "Help" over and over again. Then, like any person on lots of drugs, I started imagining a Dateline Special. All I could think about was the part on the show where they talk about the woman who was home with the stomach virus and heard screams but did nothing about it. So, what do I do? I dial 9-1-1. I tell them that I hear girls yelling "help" and could someone please go to my neighbors house and check it out.

Just an FYI for both of my fans out there: "Help" and "Hope" (the 6th grade girl who had her friends over for a slumber party) sound a lot alike when you have taken pain killers and three doses of phenergan. And to the Edmond police who raided the slumber party, thanks for responding so quickly and thoroughly to my call. And thanks especially for ratting me out to Hope's parents. What ever happened to remaining anonymous?

If anyone is interested in a 3 bedroom, 2 bath, with over sized playroom give me a call. I expect the HOA to ask us to leave at any moment.

That's hilarious!! I'm sorry you were sick though...they should've been happy that you took the time to be concerned even though you were so sick! What a way to start off the new year! :)

Heh heh. That was so good of you to call, though!!
Hope you're feeling better.

The HOA should thank you for caring about their noisy kids:)

Aublog said...

The image of that scenario was cracking me up. I'm sorry I missed it. Tell the kids I miss them!(you guys too, of course)

I can always count on your blog being entertaining! Sorry you are sick, we had the same bug last week.

Tracy said...

Aaaawww, that was sweet of you! And really funny. It'll be a party that little pre-teen will always remember. Hope you are feeling better.

At least you don't have any trees left that could possibly fall on their roof. THAT would definitely get you kicked out of the hood.

(Actually, if we really did have a HOA, don't you think they would have taken care of those prehistoric rock signs coming into the neighborhood?) The next thing you could do for me would be to drive your car right into those things. :)

HAHAHAHA, oh my word, best blog post ever!

No no Summer, Ricky told me that you just made Hope the most popular girl at OCA, she is the only one that had the cops called to her New Years Party!

I'm not sure I've laughed that hard since the back porch "incident" of 2001. Can you PLEASE put up a post about that sometime? Surely it's been long enough to be funny now. :)

I personally feel better having a neighbor like you!! However, I will keep this in mind when I am playing in the back yard with the girls. ...we'll use our inside voices so we don't bother you! haha
