It finally happened.

THE whistle.

a post-work, 3-mile run through my neighborhood in my lululemon reverse grooves and my march for maddie t-shirt with my (rocky training montage) music blasting through my ipod. I was feeling good, there was life in me yet. I could have run a fourth mile, for sure. I stopped in front of the high school for a moment to fix my headband when I heard it.

THE whistle.

I whipped around to make sure that the whistling was, indeed, intended for me and my smoking ass, and once this was confirmed, I jacked up the pace and ran all the way home with a smile on my face. I was, after all,  a girl who had been whistled at. FINALLY. it only took thirty years.

and then I collapsed on my bed. and realized.

it wasn’t a high school I had stopped in front of.

it was an ELEMENTARY SCHOOL.

shitty realization of the day: being whistled at my pre-teens *might* just be worse than never being whistled at at all.

please come on over to Juice today. I’m running a Mother’s Day contest for an XBOX 360 bundle. Come on, you know you want to. There are absolutely no strings attached, and this puppy is valued at $275!

(I’ll be honest, I’m more than a little bit jealous that I don’t qualify to win this)

(I’m guessing with the Lips game, you can probably make your own CandySam video!)

(seriously…GO THERE NOW!)

  1. Maybe it was a hot teacher giving the whistle. That’s seriously what I would go with!

  3. Yeah… I was all excited about that XBOX contest until I realized it’s not for guys. I was going to use it to leverage a console out of my wife.

    Also? Think of the whistle this way: in 10 or 12 years you’ll be Stiffler’s mom and Josh will be Stiffler.

    (OK wait… maybe don’t think about it like that.)

  10. I’d like to be the one to kiss your ass and tell you it was a teacher.

    But we all know it was a student. Because you’re so wee!

    But I love you all the same!

  18. I’m with the previous posters, think of it as a whistle from a hot teacher. Or perhaps a hot divorcee picking up junior for a dentist appointment.

    I’m too self conscious to run outside…in public..where people can see me. That is why we bought a treadmill.

  19. Whistles from pre-teens? I do believe that puts you in the MILF category, my dear. And isn’t that something to be proud of?

  21. Oh my hell. I’m slightly more flabbergasted that those pants go for $96 than the fact that you may have been whistled at by a 10-yr-old. Do they run for you? Cuz then I’ll buy ‘em.

  22. I love this, and strangely enough, had just been thinking about exactly the opposite – how I kinda sorta secretly miss (some of) the catcalls that have not come in my direction much lately. Doing a post on that flip side & will link to you.

    And apparently I have to check out these Lululemon pants, since I hear nothing but miraculous things about them.

  23. At least it was a whistle thrown ass-ward rather than a ham sandwich or garbage…I don’t want to talk about it.

  24. Definitely a teacher whistling! Way funny…

  25. Okay, so it probably WAS a student, but look at it this way: He thinks you look young enough to be prime whistling material! I bet he thought you were a teenager, and not, you know, Stacey’s Mom of Fountains of Wayne fame. :)
