Life - A Snapshot


Background:
HRH's class has been given a few disposable cameras and an assignment to take pictures of their house, neighborhood, favorite room, family, etc. HRH is the last in the class to take the camera home. There were about seven or eight pictures left.


Scene:
Manic Mommy stepping out of the shower, naked as the day she was born (clearly, you can already see where this is headed).

A knock on the door.

RC enters carrying disposable camera that is part of HRH's homework.

RC: I just want to take one picture.

MM (mirror strategically behind her, of course) simultaneously reaches for a towel and the camera. Screeches: NOOOOO!!! Don't take the picture!!


Options:
1. Run camera over with newly-repaired truck.

2. Develop all pictures to determine if nudie pic of naked mommy was, in fact taken. Also to be taken into consideration: person working the photo desk at Target.

3. Hand the camera back to kindergarten teacher and hope for the best.

I'd definitely go with #2.

Now that I'm done laughing... I would destroy the camera. Get him a new one and send him out on a G-rated picture taking mission.

OMFG!!! HAHAHAHAHAHA!!

If he took the picture and you are at least covered up, we totally want to see that shit. HAHAHAH!

I'm still laughing!!

Develop the pictures. You will never see the Target photo person again. But the teachers you have to see all year. You don't want to be "That Mom."

Go to a Target far, far away from you house.

#2. You might not even be in the frame.

I'm not going to comment because you've probably already made your decision. :-)

#2. Just be prepared never to go back to that Target again if it doesn't go your way. OR buy a new camera and start the whole project over again.

My daughter did that to me once, when I was drying my hair. Fortunately, it was just the digital.

THere was a good reason digital cameras were invented. I would go with the "accidently" dropping the camera in the toilet. OOoops.

Tough one. I vote #2 as well. Unless you really trust that K teacher!

I would develop the pics at a Target that you never go to, who knows maybe he didn't get the shot he wanted.

If I could breathe (after laughing my A** off), I would tell you to "lose" the camera!!!! Oh, good times....
