Slendermama

Last night, after I had showered and gotten into my pajamas, my son decided to follow me around snapping rapid pictures of me with his iPod camera.

"Dude, do you really have to do that?"

"Yeah, Mama.  These are going to be perfect!"

"Perfect for what?"  This sounded like trouble.

"The horror video I'm going to post on YouTube!"

"The what?"  I couldn't believe it.  "No!  You are not posting any pictures of me on YouTube!  You delete all of those, right now!"

"But, Mama, this would be so awesome!" He showed me the pictures.  I looked like some kind of scary shadowy figure moving around the house.  "You look like Slenderman!"

Uh, right.  Probably more like Slendermama! (And no, ladies and gentleman, there are no horror videos of me on YouTube so don't bother looking!)

  1. If he made you scary, then at least you know he has a future in photography. He knows just how to catch the right angles and might.

    1. I'm glad I asked what he was going to do with those pictures. I would've gone nuclear if he had posted them!

  5. If any of us did that to our mother we would have to kiss our ass goodbye. Witness Protection couldn't save me or my siblings. Great job securing the evidence mama.

    1. Who knows what he'll be. He's interested in so many things. Personally, I think he'll be a video game designer.

  9. My kids are doing the YouTube thing too. Making videos and such. Amazing what they can do with a tablet camera and a PC or iMac.

  15. And we now all want to see that video--you are killing your son's artistic creativity, you know, but denying him this one opportunity :)
