I had been feeling a bit off for a few weeks now...
Nothing terribly drastic...just little things...
I first noticed when I was loading the kiddos into the car, as I've done for 7 years now. There's no just getting in the car, I have to get the kiddos situated and strapped in before I can get in the drivers seat. This day was no different...until I got in the car.
I actually belted myself up, had my keys in hand...before I noticed. I was on the wrong side of the car. That wouldn't be such a big deal...had I not heard the sound. Did anyone else hear it, or was it just me? Oh-oh-oh-oh-ah-ah! I turned my head...it was like a high pitched monkey sound...but the kiddos didn't hear it.
Then there was the time I was sitting on the couch, checking facebook on my phone. Normal as any other day. The Bro posted a picture of the elevated train stop. He's been working down there for a while now. (I don't know what app he's using, but he's taking some great panoramic pics...)
Before I even knew what was happening...I had typed "Mind the Gap!"
"Mind the Gap"?!? Where did that come from...and then there's that sound again!
Oh-oh-oh-ah-ah-ah...Am I the only one hearing this???
Every afternoon I pick up my daughter at school. Every afternoon, it's the same scenario..."Do you have to go potty?" I say. "Nope Mommy" she says. Then we get a few blocks from home and "Mommy...I have to go potty!"
This day, I picked her up...and said "Do you need to use the loo?"
"What's a loo Mommy?"
...and then that sound again! Oh-oh-oh-ah-ah-ah...Was that a guitar? I looked around...
I think the hat incident is what pushed me over the edge.
Did I actually BUY a cocktail hat?!?
Does anyone in Chicago WEAR a cocktail hat??? I mean...I can see if my name was Beatrice...and I was invited to William and Kate's wedding...but come on. Chicago...I've never seen ANYONE wearing a kooky hat like that.
Cue the darn Oh-oh-oh-ah-ah-ah...I'm defiantly the only one hearing this!
Holy Madonna Penn Ritchie Ciccone Batman!
I know what this is!
It happened to Gwyneth...and now it's happening to me!
I've got Brit Fever!!!
HOW can this happen?!?
I must go to the Cybher Conference and get my Brit on...
Help me Collective Bias...you're my only hope!
Oh-oh-oh-ah-ah-ah...Cybher Calling...I never felt so much a like a like a like a...
