Oops

Oops, I accidently voted for Obama...those ballots are just so darn confusing. O.k. not really. The real reason for the "Oops" title is this. My brother Jake sent me a text message saying the following, "Due to long lines all Obama supporters have been asked to vote on Wednesday." haha funny funny, I know, right. Well, someone didn't think so. I had sent it to my friend Amy who recently changed her phone number. I keep forgetting to put her knew number in my phone so it went to a total stranger. Here's how the texting went...


Me: -the original message


Stranger: "Who is this?"


(at this point I thought it was Amy)


Me:"Lana, haha"


Stranger: "Who the hell are you"


(realizing it wasn't Amy, but driving at this point, I didn't answer back)


a couple minutes go by...


Stranger: "Who the *$%$ is this!"



(By this time I'm not driving anymore and can answer)



Me: "Jesse Jackson"



Ok, I didn't say that last part because at the time I didn't think to, I actually did the polite thing, apologized and explained. My gosh though, it was only a joke. People need to lighten up.

My other "OOPS" of the day happened this morning. I had just finished feeding Tristan and went to get up when "POP"! There goes my neck/back. I felt this surge of pain and dropped to the floor. The pain was so bad, I thought I was going to puke. I had to crawl to the bathroom. As I was crawling I began to black out! I finally made it to the bathroom, but had no movement in my neck, so I had to just lay on the floor (gross, I know)

Lucky for me, Chad hadn't left for work yet so he was able to work from home. I spent the first half of the morning paralyzed, ok I wasn't paralyzed, but I really couldn't move me neck! By the second half of the day I felt better, but am still feeling sore! Am I really old enough to be having these aches and pains!

People really need to lighten up. Bad news...Obama it is. Yikes! Should we migrate to Canada? hahaha!!! So sorry to hear about your back/neck!! Glad Chad was able to stay home. Hope you're feeling better...except maybe after the poll results now you're just sick! :)

ha ha I got that text too and you know the funny thing is, is that they had to denounce the text in public because the Obama supporters were dumb enough to believe it!! I'm so sorry about your neck. Man are we that old?! ha ha just kidding

Michelle said...

Lana I was totally going to do this same post! I was going to say I voted Obama b/c we was going to win and I only vote for winners. But, you beat me to it.

That's scary about your neck! Do you know what happen?

And that guy needs to take a chill pill. Yikes.

Lana!! I was dying when Jake got that text. He got it from one of his friend's whose number he didn't have, so he didn't know who it was from. he said at first he didn't get it and thought for some reason that it was offensive so he wrote back, "who in their gay pro abortion mind wrote that to me?" LIke only Jake would do, and his friend wrote back, "dude, it's me chance!" Jake said then that he read it again and got the actual meaning of it! He's such a dork!! But, that sounds about like the conversation you had!! hahahaha... Anyway, hope your neck and back are feeling better, that's a little freaky!

I always thought you and Jesse Jackson bore a strong resemblance. Hah! My brother sent us that text, too. I am sad for you about your naeck/back. What caused it? What are you going to do? Does it happen a lot? Feel more better soon!

Thanks everyone for the get well wishes. I woke up feeling pretty sore this morning (kind of like I'd been ran over a few times), but I'm feeling a ton better now!
