Button, button who’s got the button?

To celebrate my brain being fried by the NaNo experience I'm sporting THREE buttons on my winter coat at the moment.

"I write therefore I am"
"I believe in j"
"Nano '09″

The first one so I will remember why I started this insane challenge,
The second one because judy is going to finish this thing dammit!
And the third one so I can blame NaNo for any possible traffic violations.
The way it works is the literature loving officer will pull me over, look at my wild eyes and frantic hair, see the buttons, realize the pressure that I'm under and say it's ok Karen, I'll let you off with a warning this time….. but that excuse only works in November……..

..….for all other months you have to use your boobs.

thank goodness for those across the chest seat belt straps-not much help in winter, true, but I imagine they can be flattering. (and we get ticketed for not wearing one, now)

Karen from Mentor said...

LOL Bandit, I'm assuming you were alluding to those old "lift and separate" cross your heart commercials from a while back.

Interesting take on the post.

Are you Nanoing? Cause that would explain a lot.

Welcome to the blog. Thanks for stopping in.

Karen :0)

Now that you're a well-known blogger, I'm sure the officer would recognize you and be too star-struck to ticket you anyway. But it's nice to have the NaNo excuse and the cleavage to use as backups!

Karen from Mentor said...

Kris knowing that you used to be a police detective pre mommyhood I'll tread carefully.
I'm a big fan of the men in blue [or gray, don't want to leave the staties out of the mix]

But the other day I saw a policeman at a stop light talking on his cell phone, im[ing] with someone AND surfing the web on his center console computer. When the light changed he was steering WITH HIS KNEE...... I wanted to chase him down and make a citizen's arrest lol

I think there's just too much going on in cars these days.

And truth be told? There's not really that much cleavage *sigh*

I had little success using my boobs to get out of a ticket. But they have gotten me a guest spot on Biggest Looser.
Keep plugging away at that NaNo.

Karen from Mentor said...

lol Chris. I think the first time I saw the term "moobs" as in man boobs was in the comment thread of your Teenage Romeo story.

Now I'm watching the scene from Seinfeld where Kramer and George's dad are doing the cha cha and trying out the prototype of the bro....

oh man.....laughing...

I love your imagination!
You crack me up, I needed a laugh today! So you can scratch that off your list :P

Karen from Mentor said...

Making you laugh is on my list every day Estrella, so I'm glad this worked.

I love my button! (Although I did think it was more of a general statement, not necessarily specific to nano. A J-rocks-unversally sort of thing. A J-don't-let-the-bastards-get-you-down-because-karen-schindler-the-rock-star-believes-in-you thing. A... Never mind.)

I LOVE my button! Hugs!!!

*slaps self on forehead*

I don't know what I was thinking to not include the fact that the button is a universal statement. 24/7 there's me. believing in judy.

hugs baby. you rock. and fyi? I met a lady wearing a wwjd button because of my I believe in j button. THAT was an interesting conversation...lol

[glad you like yours too]

Hugs back Estrella. We're going to have to invent a transporter just so you and Judy can come over during the holidays to visit. We'll have a litte soiree.... nothing fancy, just maybe a party with two or three hundred of our closest friends.
