What do I do?

What do I do when I look on my phone and see I have a message.

I open the message.

It reads, "It took me forever to get the courage up to send this."

There is a picture attached.

I open the picture and its a picture of boobies!

Mom boobies, like mine.  I mean, they are NOT mine but they are by no means "dirty picture boobies."  They might be a picture for a husband out-of-town and it could be as innocent as "holy cow look at my tan lines" photo.  It could be a "before" photo, as in before a little touch up with a plastic surgeon.

I don't know why someone takes a picture of themselves naked.  I don't care if you do.

This does not change the fact that I just got a naked topless picture of a mom I know from my boys school.

A pair of boobies staring at me that I find myself studying and concluding that those are indeed her boobies.

Holy-Mother-of-God.  What do I do?  

Do I reply?

I get butt called and butt texted all the time.  This is a byproduct of having a name that starts with "ABB"  

I am a librarians dream.

Once she realizes she accidentally "sexted" me will she kill herself before school starts because she has to see me everyday.

I don't want her to be uncomfortable.  I have all sorts of wacky pictures on my phone.  I don't have MY boobies but I have other people's boobies.  I have pics of toilet stalls, dead mice in pool basket, husband spooning dog thinking its me...

Should I send her a naked photo of some of my anatomy so we are even?  No harm, no foul.  

Do I just send her a, Thank you?"

Do I just send her a, "Thank you but I like boys?"

Do I call the son and tell him, "Shame on you!"

Do I forward it to her husband and tell him I think if was intended for him?

These are the kind of pictures I send my husband.  I sent this picture a couple of weeks ago. I wanted this puppy.  I lost all sense of reason.  I went to the mall to buy Chinese soup spoons and I am trying to leave with a Havanese puppy?  Maybe he would have said yes if I showed him my boobies.

I was pacing the house chanting...

"What the heck do I do?  What does this mean?  

Ahhhhhh who can I share this freaking hilarious situation with?"

I decided to contact the mom.

I am soooooo glad I did and so glad I didn't have to tell her I am not into girls, that way.

I think we can all take away a BIG lesson from what happened to her, (and don't forget me, as I was handed this AWESOME situation to write about.)

Deep thoughts by Abbie: 
We all get things in our teeth.  We all get boogers.  We all have boobies.  Just don't have pictures of your OWN things as in food in teeth, boogers in nose or YOUR boobies on YOUR phone.  OH, and NEVER, ever,  leave your phone with a group of teenagers without a password on it.


All that makes you smile, laugh, think, love, cry or cry laughing.

PS  I promise I wont send you pictures of my boobies.  I may at any time send a picture of something in my teeth or an exceptional booger.  Stop it!  We all get boogers!

After attending BlogHer last week and wondering where I fit into this whole "webosphere" God sent me a clear sign where I belong.  I must keep blogging and telling these stories.  He sent me Mrs ______   boobie picture so I could make you laugh.

I think God wants me to continue on.

What would you have done and do you have a similiar story?
