Total Recall Sunday: When you wish upon a star…and it’s stuck…up where?!

I’m putting my “blog of the week” back up. I love finding new ones and mentioning blogs that I’ve been reading for awhile. Basically, I love spreading bloggy love around. It’s kind of like sex well not really but with zero chance of getting an STD. Awesome? I say yes!

The blog of the week is City Momma who I find to be a wonderful and beautiful writer. She’s a new mom with a new blog and she also just started a 30 day blog challenge so I’ve gotten to know quite a bit about her.

A few must read posts from her are The Things No One Tells You about becoming a new mom, and this beautifully written post Yes, it’s a mushy, my baby is so inspiring, thought.


I know this is Total Recall Sunday but I think I’m going to start putting the post up on Saturday night just for the hell of it.

This is a post I wrote around the holidays last year but I thought it was fitting seeing that my in-laws have been here since Friday. Oh dear gawd, help me!

And now on to a Christmas star stuck up my MIL’s bum because I’m classy like that and such an effing lady. heh.


When you wish upon a star…and it’s stuck…up where?!

November 22, 2010

We are now on our way to spend the rest of the week with my family. Yay! Yesterday while at the in-laws, we were in the living room and my FIL and hubby were in a deep discussion about which is better, east coast or west coast rap.

Just go with me on this.

My MIL got up to grab a newspaper from 1992 that had a very compelling article, swaying people towards east coast rap.

When she was walking over to the newspaper stack, I saw something that shocked me. I finally realized why she has been so mean and insulting to me all of these years.

You are not alone. There is help for Christmas stars stuck up someone's butt.

I can’t believe she’s never talked about this problem. I learned from Dr. Google that this has deeply affected many others over the years.

Most are too ashamed to talk about this but my wish is that they know they’re not alone.

My MIL has been carrying this around for years and in one second of forgetting who she was, she unclenched and the star was finally free. The Christmas star was pretty shaken up and needed some time alone outside with a few glasses of wine.

Later that night, the star came to me and while he was fuzzy on the details, he thinks his incredibly daunting journey started around Thanksgiving 1970.

He said that before then, he had lost much of his family to this awful problem of “can’t take the stick out-itis”. Star told me that my MIL and her family were in such a rush to get the tree up and untangle the lights.

He thought my MIL saw him lying on the couch and then everything went dark.

After using several handi-wipes and a bottle of disinfectant, he was starting to feel like his old self. I was able to take him to the neighbors who gladly welcomed him into their home. They even promised Star that he can sit on top of their tree for the rest of his days.

Sadly some aren’t as lucky and remain up the butts of many. The solution is simple, unclench. Unfortunately, it didn’t seem to make much of a difference with my MIL.

Then again, a wooden post my in-laws had in their backyard has gone missing. Hmmm……


Total Recall Sunday is pretty simple. Just add a post you wrote whether it’s something from a year ago or even last week. It can also be a post that you really love but it went unnoticed.

The linky I’m using will open up into another page but I will add your post on this page for easier access. Also if you’d like, please give others who link up some bloggy love. I’ve been meaning to check out everyone you has been linking up since I started this a few weeks ago but had a brain freeze without the ice cream.

If you check out a link or two then leave a comment if you wish. After that do 20 jumping jacks, 10 push ups, and mix it up with the running man and the cabbage patch dance. Or you can just say f*ck it and eat a brownie.

And no, I’m not poking a little fun at certain giveaways that people have where you enter by liking their blog, like the product on Facebook, give up your first born, etc., etc. Okay maybe I am a tiny bit. :^)
