Several years ago, I thought I would have learned to put my toys away. The one time that I left Platinum Pete out in my shower was the day that the cleaning ladies came to the house. Platinum Pete was moved from one shelf to the other. Embarrassing. Most parents have been teaching their children to put their toys away since they were little ones.
I was busy at work the other day. I had a spreadsheet full of data clouding my head when my mother called to tell me that the pest company was at my house to spray. She called back to say he was going to go spray in my bathroom for sugar ants. I was enthralled with work and let it go in one ear and out the other.
Two hours later, I was leaving work and sat in my car. Shit! I left my bullet out on my sink. Oops, I did it again! Sommabitch. I was a little embarrassed, but I remembered that it would give the guy a good story to tell for a laugh. Shit does happen. We’re all sexual human beings.
I decided to share my embarrassing moment by calling and telling my dad about it. He had a good laugh and called me an idiot. Most of you are probably wondering how I could have a conversation like that with my dad. We are all adults here. Everyone masturbates or at least they should. I was lucky enough to grow up in an open household full of inappropriate comments and jokes with a side of sarcastic asshole. I wouldn’t have it any other way.
The moral of the story is… pick up your toys and put them away or have the red-faced embarrassment and own that shit in the mirror.
