To Jack Ass Events and future resume bullet points!

October 6th, 2012 by Carrie, the Just Mildly Medicated gal

You know how sometimes when you go out and you end up spending all night telling drunken men “back off my ass”? Well this has a whole new meaning as in my current life it was a mule not my ass and they were elementary children not drunken men.

Back to the beginning… I am the Room Mom for a 1st grade class at an awesome school. During the fall most schools have a Fall Fun Fest, as does this awesome school. As Room Mom part of the gig is to make sure volunteers are at your assigned event to help kids and give out a prize. So I get the email that says what class is in charge of what event, last year my class did the cake walk… this year I was taken back when I read “mule ride”. Yes, mule ride. I am thinking are you freaking kidding me, they must know I’ve never gone to a PTA meeting at this school… I am pretty sure they have it out for me.

After my coffee and a good amount of Facebook time I relax into this. I begin fully embracing the mule ride gig. I have dubbed it the Jack Ass Event (not to the parents in the class just everyone I know on Facebook) I am thinking there has to be a story to share here and people are signing up to help out, so really all is well.

I am then talking to a friend of mine who started a career after college and has no kids so we have occasional ‘trade lives with you’ envy not to mention most of my best stuff is not quite understood to its full potential. Conversation goes something like:

Me: I have Room Mom stuff to get done today.

Friend: I don’t even know what that means.

Me: Room Mom, you know, I organize stuff for the classroom… you know cool, awesome super mom stuff.

Friend: Oh.

Me: I am like a career Room Mom, totally putting it on my resume.

Friend: What would you put?

Me: Well I am in charge of the Jack Ass Event at the Fall Fun Fest. Can you believe it? Not sure if I am on the mule ride shit list with the PTA or if the Donkey Show is like a big promotion.

Friend: You should NOT put that you are in charge of a Donkey Show on your resume, or a Jack Ass event for that matter.

Me: Why not? I think it’s a huge responsibility, okay maybe not but who else will have that one their resume, I’ll be memorable…

Friend: OH MY GOD! You have no idea what a Donkey Show is, do you?

Me: No, but as of this moment I am sure it’s some terrible and sexually deviant act though isn’t it? I am searching on Google now… and I will forever know that you knew all about whatever this is all about.

Friend: No, you shouldn’t do that…

Well I totally did and that’s one stop I won’t make when I take my awesome vacation to Mexico that I am not really planning on taking anyway…

So the Jack Ass Event was pretty kick ass and the mules were gigantic, which I know they are not the same as donkeys it still made me feel sorry for some strange people in Mexico…

    This post just made my day! My husband is constantly telling me of weird sexual phrases that I accidentally say or write and thus I am scared to ever let my kids use the Internet! Haha!
