You’re so vain!…this song is absolutely about me!

Today my husband, Wayne, and I had a date.
We were going to Home Depot to shop for new toilets.
I know, it’s not Red Lobster, but it works for us.

As we’re entering the van, Wayne says, “Did you write this on the side of your dirty van?”
“Write what?”
“It says ‘I’m a foxy mama’.”

“I did NOT write that!”
I’m very happy now.
“I bet some random guy saw me getting out of my van, came over, and wrote that. God I love being hot!”

Wayne says, “Are you sure one of the kids didn’t write that?”

“Which one would write that?” I reply. “Jackson and Wyatt would NEVER. Terran can’t spell. And Zoe has never heard the term ‘foxy mama.’ Nope. It’s definitely a random stranger.”

We get home.
I ask Zoe: “Did you write ‘You’re a foxy mama’ on the side of my van.”


…ok, then…

So, going back to my Valentines Day post when I complained that Wayne hadn’t gotten me a present…well, a GOOD present.
Many of you asked me what I had gotten for him.

This is what I got him.
I had to order it and it arrived today.

It’s me in a hockey jersey of his favourite team.
Of course, in the original version, I’m not wearing pants and underwear.

And no, don’t start telling me which hockey team is the best because I honestly don’t give a flying fuck.
I hate hockey.
I hate it.
I’d rather peel potatoes with my finger nails than watch it.

The jersey is strictly for my husband’s pleasure.

Look how happy he is with his present.
He’s looking at the team logo, not my boobs.
Although I am wearing my good bra.

Ok, so to get back to the fact that I was shot down as the ‘foxy mama’…

So I go to my daughter’s dance studio to pick her up, and while I’m waiting for her, I’m flashing the other daddies with my pink hockey jersey, all “Look how fucken hot this thing looks on me,” and they’re all “Oh ya baby! I love a woman who loves hockey!”…

So nobody actually said a word.
But I could see it in their eyes.
Because really, how super cute is this jersey in pink!

So then I felt better after being shot down as the ‘foxy mama’.

The problem, now, however, lies in the fact that I thought this jersey would excite my husband at the thought of its various possibilities in the bedroom.

What I hadn’t counted on was this…
…”Sweetie! Toronto is playing tonight! Go put your jersey on and come watch the game with me!”

He’s gonna need to give me more than a giant-ass bear…

…before I’ll be doing that.

    Foxy's a good word. Fitting.

    And I'm in a similar boat. My girlfriend HATES football but has a cute pink jersey she wears just for me. If only she liked sports, she'd be the perfect woman…

    Haaaa. Thank God you posted something, I am dying of boredom tonight. Special Agent is not a super sports watcher, but bought me some Red Sox undies which he insists I wear. It makes the kids very interested in my undies, which is why I would rather not. There is nothing more sex killing than having your kids pawing at your bits, pointing out the logos on your ass.


    Jewelry! It always fits….

    You're hilarious. And you're absolutely a foxy mama. Love the jersey. I don't mind hockey; that is, I kind of like to read about it in the newspaper (back when I read the newspaper instead of blogs and knew what was going on in the world instead of just what's going on inside my blogfriends' heads). It's too hard to follow the puck on TV, and it's too scary when you have good seats at the game.

    But I'd totally use the jersey and nothing else present on my husband…and he'd love it.

    Sandra, I'm shocked that I've discovered a Canadian who doesn't like hockey but that will be to your advantage when you rule the world. No need to appoint Gretzky to anything. I think the hubby bribed your daughter to say she wrote the “Foxy Mama” comment. Everyone is always against the future ruler from an early age….

    Awesome. Now take it down to the embroidery place and have 'TEAM BRACELET' embroidered across the front AND back.

    Seriously, whatever happened to those places – they used to be outside supermarkets and you could get His n Hers embroidered on towels and shit… What will I do now? I could suddenly have a towel embroidery emergency!

    You are so hot.

    I cannot tell a lie!

    'Foxy' is not a term I would personally use – it implies a sneaky, chicken stealing nature.

    However, the phrase 'finger lickin good' does come to mind.

    I'm with you on the hockey thing! I've fallen asleep during the only two games I went to see … YAWN!

    One of the saddest sights I ever saw was in a bar in Toronto, watching The Leafs (sorry, but that's just bad grammar) lose some playoff game or other, years ago. You'd think the city had been bombed.

    Maybe they should've played without pants?

    That jersey is waaaaay better than a teddy bear. Seriously–he still needs to make up for that.

    HA! Love that no one said a thing but you KNOW they were thinking about your scorching level of hotness. I get that.

    It's not easy being the hot one. But someone has to do it!

    I have a cute little Harley shirt that I wear for my husband who is a Harley fanatic. I look so flipping cute in it but I can't actually ride for more than like 30 minutes. Hurts my delicate tush.

    Besides do you know you're not supposed to wear HEELS on a motorcycle? What fuckwad made that one up? Although I DO have some totally kick ass boots that just scream “hot little biker chick”.

    I will never fit in though. I actually hate motorcycles. Too dangerous. Besides, the real biker chicks are always covered in tattoos and tend to be missing teeth. You know, from bar fights? Needless to say? They don't like me. For me? It's ALL about the fashion.

  44. Sparkling
    February 27, 2011 | 3:45 pm

    You know I love pink. But I think the sports people know that many women love pink, so they've upped their marketing to suck in ever more dollars by creating every jersey in pink. And they won, you see, because people like you bought it.

    Ok yes, I do own a pink Red Sox baseball hat but only because I got it for free. Ok, I might have bought my sister a pink Red Sox t-shirt but only because it was on sale and she loves the Red Sox.

    But my point is that I hate those damned marketers who learned that you can lace anything with pink and many women will buy it. And wear it. And love it. And ignore whatever logo is on it because they can't see past the pink.

    If you were shopping for a pink toilet, now that would be something!!

    Oh, and the plural of leaf is leaves, so what is wrong with those damned Torontoans? It should be Maple LEAVES, not Maple Leafs. Geez.

  45. Sparkling
    February 27, 2011 | 3:49 pm

    Oh and about hockey. I actually will watch it with k-ster on TV because I can make fun of the commentary. And repeat silly things like “nobody home”. That's one of my favorites. And I can gripe about the improper use of the phrase “man advantage”. I say that every hockey team has the “man advantage” because they are all men. DUH!! What they need to say is the “one man advantage” but they never say that. Sports guys are so D-U-M-B. BUt in my living room, I can see the puck at all times and understand what's happening thanks to the commentaters and I get my feet rubbed and I can sort of zone out and it doesn't matter. Until they get a goal and then we all have to run for cover because k-ster screams GOAL and everything goes flying, the cat loses another life and I need a valium to calm down from all the screaming. At least it's free. You won't see me paying to go to a game where I can't keep track of the puck, there is no one telling me what just happened and k-ster can't hear me saying silly things because there are too many people around.

    IT IS ABOUT YOU… erm… him. whoever the vain, apricot scarf wearing, yacht walking, dipped below one eye hat wearing dude is. the song IS about him.

    LOVE the hockey shirt—in pink,totally awesome…..and especially without the underwear I am sure (tee,hee)
    I can't get into hockey either….except MAYBE for the Stanley Cup (is that what it's called…oh dear, I can see you hubby rolling his eyes at me right now)
    I LOVE FOOTBALL….my cowboy hubby does not watch sports. I LOVE FOOTBALL. Amazing that this was NOT a deal breaker for us.

    You are foxy…what are people thinking. Like when I keep telling my 14 yr. old grandson how HOT I am.

    and it is so funny how this blogging world works….going through your comments I see a few people I blog with on a regular basis. AND…Kristina, and Hit it (Kari) I have been with in person. Totally awesome gals.
    Kristina even came to my son's viewing when he passed away in November.

    No? Too many kids around?

    I understand.

    Stuffed animals are not valentine worthy for adults..


    I say this as I sit here single so yeah, ignore me

    I like the jersey, but you look hot in almost everything I have seen you in.

    Okay, Foxy Mama, the jersey looks adorable. I'm probably jealous. Well, okay, not of the jersey. You look gorgeous and I'm glad you are wearing pink. It is a rocking color on you. But then you'd also look great in “blue fox” don't you think? Next Valentines Day, blue fox head to toe!

    And, yes you ARE a foxy mama. Stick with THAT. :)

    The pink jersey is extremely foxy by the way. And Wayne STILL owes you the Pandora bracelet. Tell him we're ALL waiting….

    MY husband broke his ankle last night (humorous recounting on my blog). As you might imagine, he's milking it for all it's worth.
    Excuse me, I believe he's ringing the bell right now… I must go fluff his pillow. Ha!
