Ledbetter Lunacy - Part IV (Cont.)



Yes, dear Blogosphere buddies,
it's Friday, and therefore it is
time for your end-o-the-week
installment of fantabulous,
freakish fun!



~~shrill flute music & cymbals crashing (and since it's Christmas month, a nice sprinkling of bells jingling)~~


LEDBETTER LUNACY!



Today's episode really goes with last Friday's. That's the one in which readers find out what drove the Castle Wench to begin her love affair with costumes, outrageous behaviors and other stoopid doings. To catch up, click here for the first part of Episode 4 "Revenge of the Castle Wench" which began thusly:

Payback comes when the kiddos start dressing up in costumes to "help" at their kids school. Should be fun to watch.

hahahah! This so cracked me up! And it reminds me of the way my mom tried/tries to embarrass us all the time. Of course, I do something similiar except I pull a "Dori" on my kids from Finding Nemo. I'll walk around a store, pretending like I don't know them.. LOL! I run and dart through racks all the while exclaiming, "Who are you? Why are you following me! Leave me alone lil kid!" LOL! I'm awful aren't I? Muhahah!

I don't know if I can express just how disturbing that eyeball photo is...

ROFL! Great lunacy you have.

Melissa Marsh said...

How funny is it that you met that mom in the pediatrician's office later in life? Hahaha!

Suldog said...

I love the fact that mom was met again later, and the lady didn't know, at first, who she was talking to. Very funny!

mlh said...

Haha! Oh, I need to go back to the beginning of these Ledbetter Lunacy posts. These are a great read, and an entertaining way to tell a story!

Strange how you got into an "embarassing stories" talk with the new mom so quickly. Do you think she might have recognized you beforehand and came over to verify that it was you in the elf suit?

Ang said...

Too funny. I love Friday's just because of your story. I have to say, my children now grown and one with a child of her own, realize just what Mother's do for their kids and to their kids. She knows there is always a good reason behind it...even though she didn't think so at the time...lol.

My mother used to embarrass me to death by talking to strange babies/children (that is, babies/children she did not know--not babies/children who were strange in other ways) . . .

Now that I am an adult, I catch myself doing the same thing--of course, I have no children of my own to embarrass. Care to lend me yours?

Angie Ledbetter said...

You betcha, Oren. I just know my Costume Therapy is saving them lots of heartache down the road, and maybe helping some with peer pressure issues. Can't wait for the day Grandma (me) gets to see it passed down upon the grandkids. :)

Giddy, you my kinda gal! The kids may act put out, but you know they love it on the inside (somewhere deep down). LOL

See, Janna, it's like negative advertising. Them wiggly googly eyeballs get attention. hehe

Angie Ledbetter said...

Melissa, I'd give a lot to have had a video camera on her face when it suddenly dawned on her at the Boy Scout function that she was talking about ME. Poor thing...scurried off like a frightened little mouse to get away from the looney toon woman. :)

Sul, it really was. I felt sorry for her nervousness and tried to reassure her I didn't care she thought I was deranged...but, oh well. PS LOVED you Pointy story yesterday. A true Christmas classic! (Blog friends, do drop by and read it if you get a chance. Talk about give ya some Christmas spirit!)

mlh, maybe somewhere in her subconscious I looked familar to her, but the humilation on her face after slamming me unawares was way too real. LOL

Angie Ledbetter said...

You're right, Ang! Nice to know they grow up and "get" ya at some point.

Oh, Written, I'd love nothing better...but am afraid it might put you off having kidlets forever! (They're teens, remember, and 2 of 'em are boys. eeeeek.) But love ya for the offer. :) They're used to strange people (outside the family) talking to them. Don't hardly flinch anymore. LOL

kimmirich said...

Lol, Lol!!! I love this!!!
:smoooch:

Angie Ledbetter said...

Kimmi, smoochage (ooo, that's hard to say) back!

Terri Tiffany said...

That story is TOOO funny!!! LOL I would have had to laugh myself to death when the person figured out who it was!!!
You are one brave woman! I am afraid to even go to the door for Halloween!! Made the husband do it as he loves to give out candy.

Angie Ledbetter said...

Terri, I did laugh, which sometimes sounds like a loud cackle. Imagine that. Maybe that's why she ran off? :)

colbymarshall said...

Haha! I love it!

Jessica said...

Hey, I saw your post on Terri's blog and was wondering is you write for suite 101? I was considering subbing to them but wasn't sure how it worked. Any advice? And now I need to go check out that article. :-)

Jessica said...

Oh, just thought I'd let you know your first link worked. LOL Because I'm not all there in the head, I copied and pasted the third one without changing any of the "dots" into dots, etc. So then I tried the first and it took me right there.
All that hard work for... ahem. :-)

Angie Ledbetter said...

Glad you likey, Colby.

Jessica, no, I don't write for Suite 101. Just found the listing for flash submissions there. :) And LOL on my slaving over getting that link to appear, and it worked all along! Story of my life.
