Missing Germany allllll week.

Walking across campus today I ran into a friend I haven't seen in about six months and...SURPRISE! She was severely pregnant.

I feel weird about this for two reasons:

#1. Because the last time I saw her she was a regular old girl running around campus wearing spandex as pants based on her own free will.

This time around she is wearing spandex out of force because that's all that is conducive to her newly chosen profession of human-growing.

(Speaking of spandex, read this. My friend Bryce is a smart boy and I like what he has to say.)

#2. The last time I saw her she could have also been pregnant, and I just didn't know it.

I don't like that idea.

If there is going to be another person participating in our conversation I would like to be informed. Even if it is a weird alien inside of her stomach.

NEXT. Tracy opened my cupboard the other day and asked me if I still planned on eating my potatoes.

"Yes," I said.

"No," she said.

I thought we could just cut off the bad parts and eat the rest. Tracy said no again.

I've got to start eating more food faster so it doesn't go bad.

Fun Fact: Before you smell the conditioner you want to buy at the store, keep in mind that they probably changed altitude on the truck ride over and there is some definite air pressure in there waiting to get out.

I didn't even want to buy that conditioner but seeing as how half of it ended up on my top lip, I felt guilty not making the purchase. The other night at work a Dad showed up at my game and asked if I could watch his kids while he played. I told him that my boss doesn't want us to babysit because he is actually paying me to do work (crazy), so he came up with his own solution using the mini-goals on the sideline. I didn't know if I should laugh really hard or call child services, so instead I just took a picture and blogged about it. Another funny story from work the other night: A woman on the sideline was trying to get her baby to stop screaming so she could watch her husband play. She started to quietly sing to him what was happening on the field to keep him distracted. "And now the man has the ball, and he passes it to the other man..." she was singing as I walked by. As I was walking away I heard her say, "...and now the skinny girl has the ball...but she can't do anything with it because she's just a stupid skinny girl..." hahaha.

On a final note, I'd just like to give a shout out to my wonderful Grandpa Wade. Today is his birthday, and after how much he does for others, he deserves it to be the best day ever. Love you Grandpa!



  1. none of this post had anything to do with germany, but i read the whole thing anyway and it was hilarious. i get shampoo and/or conditioner on my face almost every time i try to smell it at the store. you'd think i'd learn. i also liked the part in this blog about the woman singing to her baby. mostly because she's bitter against skinny people. katieeeeeee i hope we can be roommates.

  2. did that guy seriously leave his kid like that?!! haha oh my.

    and those potatoes are STILL totally edible, my family would do that. as long as they aren't SQUISHY. that's when bad things happen.

    yess i've been missing germany alott lately, because remember how we were getting ready to leave the country a year ago?

  3. Katie. I cannot tell you how much joy your blog brings to me. you are hilarious.
