He totally broke his neck looking at me!

So the other day I'm walking back from my daughter's elementary school having just dropped her off. I was ready for the day because I was going to work.

So basically what I'm saying is... I didn't look like I just woke up, which can be really scary.

Anyway, a guy there totally broke his neck trying to look at me. He may or may not have been ... well, I'm not going to be rude, so nevermind.

I'm not saying that to be pompous... or vain... or "I'm all that"...

There is a point.

And the point is... what happens in my brain after something like that occurs.

Let me know if I'm alone in this thought process.

First of all my brain thinks, "hahahaha... that was so nice"

and then, "Oh yea, I still got it."

and then, "Wait... what if I just have something hanging out of my nose?"

and then, "I bet my skirt is tucked up in my under garms?"

Check nose, check under garms... I'm good.

and then, "Maybe I'm just really weird looking? Like he's never seen hair color my color... or my breasts are WAY bigger than is normal for natural breasts... or maybe he can't believe my butt fit into my skirt?"

and then, "Oh well, hahahaha, he looked funny looking at whatever he was trying to look at!? Maybe it wasn't even me!? Maybe there was someone behind me that I didn't notice? Hahahaha... people are funny sometimes."

Seriously.

Does someone else think I may have a problem with the voices in my head?

Am I the only one that follows this pattern?


How abnormal am I?

Let's discuss.

Thanks in advance.

Love,

Shelle-BlokThoughts said...

If you say it... then it HAS to be true! ;)

Homer and Queen said...

Ditto KP. I wouldn't know what to think because it has never happened to me.

Garden of Egan said...

Well, since I have had the great distinction of meeting you on two separate occasions.......ya baby.
You are hawt. He was totally checking you out.


I can't enter into the discussion cuz well.....I ain't got it.

Steph said...

Dood... you are HOT!

I always have conversations with myself. But mostly about how bad I want a kitten. Your conversations are more deep.

Shelle-BlokThoughts said...

Queen and GOE--you guys are SO full of it!!! Not even having it happen to you... B> S>

Just sayin ;)

Step-bwhahahahaha... oh my gosh, that was funny... and good. Mine are more self centered I think. :)

Heidi said...

I think the answer lies in your observation about breast size. :)

~Kenny said...

Not for nuthin' but yeah...I would totally break my neck to check you out!

Shelle-BlokThoughts said...

Ha! Heidi... for sure! hahahaha.

Kenny--hey... it means something! Because obviously I'm flattered. As long as you don't break your lips... those things need to win you some kind of award or whatever trumpet, band playing, marching, people win! :)

Homer and Queen said...

Trust me. Women hate hot women. And it is even worse when they are hot AND nice. Ya'll can die a slow, painful death.

I am trying to score us some free tickets to break our necks looking at cowboys. I mean bull riding. Details later.

Jessica Stier said...

You are so not alone in this! Why can't we just cut off the thoughts after, "Yeah, I still got it!" I think you still got it babe!

Shelle-BlokThoughts said...

Queen!!! WHAT!? OH MY GOSH... I just got the chills and goose bumps and stuff. That would be sa-weet!!! But no expectations... that news just made me happy... even if you are at the just trying stage still.

You light up my life...

Shelle-BlokThoughts said...

Jessica! Okay, good, I'm glad I'm not alone...

I know right!? Why can't I just cut the stupid voices off after that!? I find it gratifying that AT LEAST I think that first...

Just Sayin.

Emily said...

Yes, I have the same train of thought but in this case he WAS totally looking at you because you're one hot mama.

♥Georgie♥ said...

I have a very similar thought process BUt wait that would mean this would have to happen to me...which is rarely IF ever LOL yes you are HAWT!!! Rock The Hawtness!

T said...

I remember going through this awhile back... turns out the guy just thought I was someone he knew... or at least that was his excuse...

You think he always recognizes people by their butts? because he was SO checking it out :)

Shelle-BlokThoughts said...

Emily-u do!? Wait that makes me feel a little normal because u r hot IRL... I would know, and I don't lie about this stuff.

Georgie-whatev,it has to happen to you all the time, you are just unaware of it? I've seen pics of you. Your eyes and smile! My goodness!

T-lol! My butt is very recognizable! Maybe he was just trying top figure out if he knew me!!!

Shelle-BlokThoughts said...

Now you all must stop before I let all these compliments go to my head and I actually believe them!!!

Can you imagine!

I'd be a disaster.

Walking around just to catch people checking me out!!!

Wait... That might be good for calorie burning...

Nevermind... Carry on.

Momma Sunshine said...

I totally used to go down "the insecurity road". I've had to work at it, but now I'm usually able to stop myself at, "Oh yeah...still got it, baby!!"

Effort and re-training of your brain is what's required here. Don't give in to the Inner Critic voice!

Barbaloot said...

See-this is why I go through life making sure I won't draw attention to myself in any way, shape or form.

Stephanie Faris said...

Oh my gosh, I'm so glad someone else has that thought process. I thought I was crazy! You're such a hottie. It's no surprise you get looked at. I have a feeling you're looked at more than you realize!

Anonymous said...

I'm thinking he was looking at something else.

Are you sure? She is young and cute... maybe he was looking at her.

Look, she's got a little kid, she's probably married.

Yes, but still, it can't hurt to look. Maybe she's a single mom.

Hello?? She's really cute, not likely.

binks said...

I'm sure he was looking at you Shelle, I mean really, how could he resist??

SciFi Dad said...

The voices in your head only become a problem when you start losing arguments with them.

O said...

Think I'm a bit of an optimist (or just a complete narcissist), cause my thoughts would be; "Damn, I sure must look hot!" And I don't think I'd give it much more thought than that...!
Visit my blog if you like.. I'm new to this whole world of blogging..

Kathi Oram Peterson said...

Not many blogs can make me laugh out loud. This is so funny! Thanks for the chuckle.

I remember a few years back (10 maybe, could be more, but I'm not fessin' up) as I walked to my car a fellow whistled at me. And I thought, yeah, I've still got it, but now I'm wondering.

And there are times at the gym, when fellahs watch me walk by, but now I'm thinking I have something stuck in teeth or maybe they are thinking why doesn't she just give up. Ah, what the heck. I'm going to keep thinking they like what they see. ;)

Shelle-BlokThoughts said...

Momma Sunshine-Hey girl! Totally true about re-training the brain. I have a lot of that to do. I'm trying... it's 20 years of the "Old Dog" syndrome. Thanks for the advice!

Barb--Girl... you are pretty--I think there is no need for you to draw any attention to yourself... it's natural :)

Stephanie--isn't it crazy. How much validation is relied on sometimes? I had to write this post just to see if there was anyone out there that thought the same way as me!?

Shelle-BlokThoughts said...

Anon--whomever you are... that was an awesome comment that had me laughing and smiling! See! I need to think more like that. Like Momma S said...

binks--I know right? I mean, I just have to say that I think that other stuff so people don't get turned off by me knowing how irresistible I am... hehehe

SciFi--They have become a problem then ;P

Shelle-BlokThoughts said...

o- I envy your thought pattern then. I wish, OH How I wish I could just stop with that! :)

Kathy--Good, we can do this together. I'm going to stop myself at "I still got it" and add a snap just for effect. I'm so glad you saw the humor in this post also! Love when people get me! :)

Danielle said...

Seriously, we need to hang out for a few days. By the time I am done with you, you will know that you are HOT!!! I tell you this all the time and I will keep beating you in the head with it. YOU ARE BEAUTIFULL!!!!!!!!

The Crash Test Dummy said...

I can't say fer sure cause I've never had that happen to me. Except when I have xyz. ;)

Jack said...

I have six thousand sisters and have gotten to be an expert at giving men a steely glare.

Walk with me and I'll have them running away. Give you new things to worry about. ;)

Becky @ Welcome to my life said...

No, when a man turns and looks at me, I think "Yeah, I got it. No you can't have it.... Goober." As if there is something wrong with him, because there is nothing wrong with me. Clearly.

Que said...

I don't have this problem at all. I just let my hotness flow and you should too. As a matter of fact, if I'm with a friend of mine and they get a look or a compliment, I accept it as my own. No point in wasting it on them! :)

Papa K said...

I give a lot of girls neck strains from trying to soak as much of me in as they can.

Too bad for them because I have to tell them: "Sorry doll... but I'm taken". Then they cry and it gets all emotional and crap. Whatever.

wendy said...

It's the dimples
and the cute freckles

and the exceptionally HUGE boobs.....you said it, not me.

Nicole said...

I always pay attention to who is checking me out. It's a total ego boost. And when my husband isn't being particularly attentive, I'll tell him about who offered to buy me a drink, or who whistled at me...and suddenly, he's all over me.

See Mom Smile said...

yea, I would take a second look at you ;) It's that red hair baby! I always wonder what people are looking at when they look at me. After 40 the self-conscience level raises a lot. It's so fun.

Anonymous said...

those were just the voices talking.....

Serene is my name, not my life! said...

Just face it. And all these comments prove it.

You are hawt!

And I say, let it go to your head. Just so your hubby remembers how hawt you are!

Shelle-BlokThoughts said...

Danielle-OKay! OKay! Goodness.... I'm sorry. But I"m not afraid to say that I would love for you to try and change my mind about it all! :)

CTD- XYZ??? BWAHHAHAHAHA. Yea... me neither, all of this is one big fantasy horrible dream?

Jack-LOL... I'm for that! I'd like to even see what a steely glare is!?

Shelle-BlokThoughts said...

Becky--that's a good tactic... and I think that Goober gives it that extra special effect!

Que! hahahahahahahaha... OH MY GOSH! I can just imagine. I need to start doing that, taking everybody else's compliments!? I bet that would boost my ego... or something like that.

PapaK--I bet it's hard living your life. All that emotion and sadness because you are taken... sigh.

Shelle-BlokThoughts said...

Wendy--no doubt at the HUGE boobs. I always say it!

Nicole--good point. Although my husband takes it as a compliment to how smart he was he chose me ;)

SeeMomSmile--It's cause you're hot. I can wait to find out about the 40 thing... believe me.

Anonymous--you hear them too?

Serene--I know!? Right...? this wasn't suppose to be a "tell Shelle how hot she is" it was suppose to see if others hear the voices...

Looks like just a handful of us! Special we are.

H.K. said...

I'm pretty sure he was checking you out because your were hot! But I totally have those same voices too, I had a guy check me out yesterday too, but then I automatically checked my feet to see if there was TP stuck on it!

People in the Sun said...

I was in a playground and I got really angry at all the moms looking at me. All of the only-dad-in-the-playground stuff came out. And there were social issues too. These people thought they were better than me because they had more money. That's why they were looking at me funny.

Of course, as soon as I got to the car I realized my fly was open.

PorkStar said...

I agree with the very first comment up on top. Also, you are not the only one who pays attention to the voices. I do too, but they usually tell me to do bad things. Evil things.

April said...

He thought he recognized the space in your teeth. That happens to me all the time. :) We need to do lunch this week and catch up!!!!

Shelle-BlokThoughts said...

H.K.-ha! I've done that before also... looked for the TP on my foot!

PITS-HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHA! OH MY GOSH... that was good. I had to run over to my husband and read that comment to him. Awesome. I hate judgmental moms :)

Porkstar--Thanks at agreeing with the comment on top...that's nice. Although you finished your comment with evil voices... (backs carefully away) *smiles tentatively* I don't judge of course :)

April-You should see the space I have NOW!!! You'd laugh! For sure let's do lunch. I'm game for whenever!

Annette Lyon said...

Absolute truth: I've never, ever noticed a guy looking at me. Not in high school, not in college, never.

I hope this is simply because I'm clueless.

Mariah said...

I met you, you're hot!

Here you Go SciFi Dad
