Who’s ready for more inappropriate potty humor???? Everyone??
That’s what I thought.
I was over at a friend’s house today talking to her and her tween daughter. Talk of Instagram came up and my friend told me that someone Tween knew had posted a semi-scandalous picture of themself (I know that’s not a word but WHATEVS) and Tween had seen it and told her mother. This led to a great convo in which they discussed, again, what was and wasn’t okay to post on the Internet.
Me: Don’t EVER even take a picture of yourself that you wouldn’t want to have to show to your grandparents, yourself.
Tween: I know…
Me: I mean, once it’s out there, even if you take it down, somebody has already forwarded it or taken a screen shot and they can do whatever they want to with it.
Friend: We’ve talked about this a lot. I hope it’s sinking in. We had one little incident around Christmas when our elf (You know those Elf on a Shelf thingies?) replaced everyone’s stocking with a pair of their underwear. Before I knew it she had taken a picture and posted the whole family’s underwear online.
Me: Uh-oh, so now all your friends have seen your parent’s underwear?
Friend: Speaking of underwear, I need to get Son some new underwear. He’s practically in the same size as Hubs now.
Tween’s jaw dropped to the ground.
Tween: Momma!! Does Brother have a huge weinie?????
I spit my Diet Coke across the room and any semblance of trying to be a good role model went out the window as I doubled over with laughter and wheezed the rest of my Diet Coke into my lungs.
Friend was as thrown by my laughter as she was Tween’s comment so we all laughed hysterically for a couple of minutes. I was wiping tears out of my eyes as Friend pulled herself together.
Friend: NO! Good grief! It’s just that–
Tween interrupted: Daddy’s is really small???
I almost vomited with laughter.
Friend: *screams tweens name* NO! OMG! It has NOTHING to do with that! He is just getting bigger everywhere!! That’s ALL!
Me: 4 hours later– still laughing.
I haven’t had to deal with cell phone drama yet. But I’ll go ahead and say it. I’m skeered.
Have you had to deal with cell phone drama? Biggest issue? If not, biggest fear?
