Addendum to a Summer Story

Remember this chick? My best friend from high school who made out with my boyfriend in front of all my friends at a party? And then at my 20 year high school reunion was throwing me under the bus in front of Mr. Peeveme because I had kissed her brother? Yea, her.

She's in a commercial for this anti-snoring device. If you want to take a peak at the chick who was almost on the recieving end of my full wrath click on the TV commercial. She's the third testimonial. Not the really blond lady but the lady after in the blue shirt.

I just thought it was funny.

What I did not write in that first story was that she kept going on and one about all the things we did in high school....only she kept saying it was me....leaving herself out of it. "I remember Peeveme did this". "This one time Peevme was blah, blah, blah". Each thing made me look stupid and immature...which I was becasue I was 16 years old....and although they were based on truths they were exaggerated and she managed to leave herself out of all the stories.

Of course, all this was in front of Mr. Peevme. I kept trying to change the subject, "So what are you up to these days"? "Oh that was so long ago. Where did you go to College?" After about three of those I took her by the elbow, you know, the way moms drag a mischeviouse kid down a hallway? Yea, I gave her one of those and pulled her aside. I said, "What are you doing? Why are you trying to make me loook bad in front of my husband? I remember myself as a somewhat nerdy homebody in high school so that's what my husband thinks. Tell you what, why don't you cool it on the, "Peevme was so drunk" stories and I wont tell embarrassing stories about you. I'm just here to have fun. We cool?"

See how much restraint I have when I try? I did not embarrass her which I could have. She would have been an easy enough target.

She avoided me the rest of the night. Fine by me.

You, my dear, are a bona fide Bad Ass. You handled that situation with grace, but still managed to show the insecure bully who was really in charge.

I am so impressed I can't even put it into words! Send some of that over here, would you please?

'Kay thx.

That infomercial is too funny! Cheesy...
I'm glad that you handled her the way you did, in fact, you make me admire you more because I would have handled that situation much differently....

Teresa,

I actually have tears in my eyes from trying to stifle my laughter. I;m at work and yelling "butt chin!" while cackling in probably not very professional.
