Forgive me, Internet, for I have sinned. I feel I must come clean with something I did last week. You may shriek in horror. You may even turn your back on me for my horrific act. But I still feel I must be honest with you.
Last Friday, I went to a…..PTA meeting. BUT WAIT, it gets worse. I showed up a half an hour early to help the Hospitality Chairperson set up and make coffee. AND (yes, there is more) when the sign-in sheet was passed around, I signed it. With my REAL name and REAL number. I know. I know. The horror of it is almost too much to comprehend. Yet, sadly, there is even more to my sinful ways.
After the meeting, I joined one of my good friends (A Stepford in denial- who will be called out by name if she outs me again) while she was talking to other board memebers. I knew it was going to happen. That damned introduction. I stammered and stumbled and finally admitted my name was Jenn. The woman cocked her head to the side and asked for my last name.
Before I knew it, I told her. I TOLD HER MY REAL NAME!
I know. I know. I am ashamed of myself, too. Not only did I put myself out there, but I know that this will make my participation in the PTA Protection Program null and void. What, oh what have I done? (In my defense, most of the board is either people I get along with or people in new positions. I mean, it could be different. Right? RIGHT?!!)
I knew that throwing myself on the ground and faking my own death was the smarter move. Now…well, now I can only accept that I have been marked a target once again for PTA volunteering. UNLESS, they are blog readers. Then, there isn’t a chance in hell they would ask me back!
