The other day my mom sent me a job posting for a “Fashion Maven”. The description began with “Are you a Fashion Maven? Watch every episode of Project Runway, LOVE to get dressed up, express yourself through fashion & have an eye for the Red Carpet? We are searching for retail sales associates that can provide the ultimate "princess" shopping experience for our amazing customers!!!” It immediately caught my eye and got me excited. The description went on to get even better so I wrote my mom back and our conversation continues as follows:
ME: This looks pretty awesome. I am sure they will have a million people apply but I think I will anyway!
MOM: really???!!!!! I thought it was so "you" but I thought you'd write back...."I'm NOT working for anyone else but me!" cool!!! ohhhhhh, and your welcome! :p
ME: hahah oh thanks! I mean I’m willing to have a boss if it’s something fun and cool like this. unless they are a troll. hmmmm good possibility they could be, maybe I should stick to working for myself.
MOM: so what were all those weird symbols on your blog about? (see here for the blog she is talking about)
ME: you don't get it. If they write you notes to do something and you can’t understand what the hell they wrote then write back to them in "code".
MOM: It's official....I'm retarded.......
MOM: oh and I really should stop emailing you so that they don't end up on blogs like xtina did!
ME: hahaha I was actually going to put this email on my next blog ghfdjhjdhdkjghsdk
(she then asks again what the symbols were on my blog in a separate email)
ME: omg you imbasol. If my boss wrote me a note i usually couldn’t read it, it was like it was written in code. So I was saying, Write a note back to your boss in your own code so they cannot read it either and you can write your code like this: and there is the pic. So for A you would use that symbol. Get it?!!
MOM: Am I an Imbasol (you're a bad speller) or just a retard? Or maybe I'm just REALLY confused..NO WAIT!!!! HOLD THE PRESS!!! I'm a muttonhead!!! my fav word ever!!!! (ps I better not find this on your blog. I know where you live....just say'in....)

ME: I’m dying! this shit is so getting posted! I actually sat there for about 5 mins trying to figure out how to spell imbecile and couldn’t so I just phonetically spelled it.
MOM: NOOOOOOOOO I "WILL" hurt you!!!!!

MOM again: ok...WAIT.....forget the murder thingy...I don't think I'll do well in prison. Use this verb instead.............you will no longer be an heir. In other words, your "princess" status will never make it to "queen" like me....you will be a pauper your whole life, and I know you really really well........and you will NOT like it!! And just in case you're being a dolt today, I have included the definition for the word pauper. Thx

PS there is a great app "ABC check" had you had this app, you could have started typing in the word imbecile and the correct spelling for the word would have popped up, because it is a very smart app and knows that you were probably raised on "hooked on phonics" so they made it for you. :p
