Weekly Wanna-Be

Holy Mother of let's take a break, right? Where have I been? I know you've missed my Wanna'Be's...I KNOW you have. Well, I'm still chubby but it's slowly melting away so I thought I'd venture back into my love for "admiring people's uniqueness" (that's the nice way of putting it).



This time is...



MRS. EDMONDSON!!



So I had to have a conference with the kids' teachers last week for this 9 week period and I got to meet the lovely Mrs. Edmondson. She's a sweetheart, really she is. SOO kind and Kora really does enjoy her BUT, she has the most interesting facial expressions and voice. I was in dream land listening to her talk to me about Kora. She sounds like she's having a really hard time getting the words out and like her toungue is all twisted up inside her mouth. Not to mention her neck which she keeps constantly flexed tight so you can see tendons protruding from it.



I LOVE meeting characters like her.



So unique and SO fascinating to watch speak. She makes my day :)



PS...Kora is the Q.U.E.E.N. at kissing butt and who better to butt kiss?



Her teachers. Yes.



She's managed to make all her teachers (from PreK to 1st, and all the church teachers as well) think they are THE MOST beautiful human on the face of the earth. She tells them over and over how much she loves them and how beautiful they are. She writes stories about them. She hugs them and holds their hand. She sits with them at recess sometimes.



Yea.



BIG TIME butt kisser.



So anyway...enjoy :)

Candace said...

You are so freakin hilarious. I hope her teacher doesn't venture to your blog. Does Kora work in your promotions department? If so, you might want to tell her not to work so hard on recruiting this particular person to be one of your sadistic (loyal) followers. LOL

raschel said...

I was going to same the same thing Dana said...is she an old lady? that's what I kept picturing was a sweet old lady. And...what IF she DID venture to your blog...haha!! especially at the end when you say "it's hard to keep my neck flexed this long". LOL! I'm with your dad, i didn't realize i was flexing my neck, but after I watched it, my neck flexors are sore. :-/ haha. good one.

Laura said...

the whole time i was just worrying about what if she comes across this on your blog. hopefully she'd be flattered...?

Jess said...

AW...she sounds like the sweetest little lady! BUT...I don't think I could listen to her for long. Me and slow talkers don't jive! :) Did she REALLY make that comment about her neck? Has Kora ever mentioned how she talks?

Btw...Kora rocks! I know I will swell with pride when I'm told by Harper's teachers that she is so wonderful...well, because she is, duh! :)

Ummm, I hope that if she doesn't see this on your blog, that she will on YouTube!!!!! I wonder how many hits you'll get from this?!?

Too funny, and welcome back!!!!

Adam & Brandi said...

There for a while I thought I was watching myself in the mirror. Kidding. I'm not that dramatic, not at all. This is so hilarious, I couldn't keep from tearing up. Poor teacher.

Jill said...

Too freaking funny. I laughed the whole time. I'm impressed that you are able to keep a straight face as you imitate these wanna-be's! I'm glad to have them back!

Lindsay said...

Queen Mama said...

Oh em gee! I am literally, I mean, LITERALLY laughing my butt off. That is just hilarious. Yes, it would be funny if ALL AMERICAN recruited Mrs Edmundson (in my most southern accent) to check out your blog. Ha.

P.S. You look great as usual...you suck!

The Nugen's said...

I couldn't stop thinking how uncomfortable you look doing this video! But great job keeping in character. I would have started laughing!

Froggylady said...

Hilarious! I think it sounds like she's trying to talk like an adult after talking to kids in a sugary sweet voice all day.

Kim said...
