...for a different kind of girl

silent surburban girl releasing her voice, not yet knowing what all she wants to say about her life and the things that make it spin. do you have to be 18 to be here? you'll know when i know.

Sunday, September 14, 2008

my kids' mom has got it goin' on. apparently.

The other night, I met a friend at Starbucks for coffee and catching up. Over a pumpkin spice latte for me (Starbucks? Call me. I will totally sleep with you on the first date) and hot tea for my friend, we engaged in random discussions quite often punctuated by uproarious laughter. While taking a breath following one such hilarious moment, my friend settled back in her chair and gave me the once over while peering above the rim of her tea cup. Then, leaning across the table toward me, she declared, "You know, you're looking very MILFy tonight."

Her assessment caused me to choke on my latte, sending drops of its delicious crack-like goodness spilling down the front of my shirt. Because that's apparently how smooth and seductive we MILF types are.

Blotting away at my misfortune (And/or my friend's unfortunate lost eyesight) afforded me the opportunity review what it was about me on this particular evening that provoked such a remark. In my haste to get out the door to meet her, I'd doffed my sensible work shoes (Oh, New Balance black cross trainers in 10 wide, how you cuddle my feet in cushiony bliss for those oh so taxing three hour retail shifts) and slipped into a pair of black heeled boots hoping to improve upon my work pants ensemble (Mmmm...work pants! Tres sexy!), Also, perhaps there was some heave to the cleave, but nothing so out of the ordinary that MILFs everywhere would feel compelled to bow down at my (unpedi'd) feet and crown me their new queen.

Foregoing the napkin in favor of blotting my boobs with a Tide To Go stain removal pen (which, let it be known, doesn't work against the mighty Starbucks pumpkin spice latte), I glanced up at my friend and demanded she retract her statement immediately.

"Oh, I beg to differ," she stated. "Without question, you are positively MILF-esque!"

"It was because I just looked up at you with demure eyes through batting lashes, isn't it?" I asked.

"Well, there is that," she responded. "But it's the way you wave your hand in front of your face when you laugh, too. And your hair. Your hair is...."

"Too porny, isn't it! My hair is WAY too porny! I KNEW IT!" I injected. "Gah! I was worried about that!"

At that point a hush fell between us, and we may have tee-hee'd and tittered a bit, unsure of this new ground we'd forged in our friendship. On one hand, I wanted to embrace this woman who still can't say the word 'penis', but the other hand figured maybe she needed a little space. We sat silently for a moment, and I blew the steam off my fresh pumpkin spice latte (Seriously, Starbucks, I'll even make breakfast the next morning. How do you like your eggs?) while pondering my options, which included:

(A) going full-on late night Cinemax movie-mode, bursting with hints of girl-on-girl action (And who's kidding who here? All late night Cinemax movies have girl-on-girl action)(I mean, I assume so), thus dictating my next move be to dip my finger into the whipped cream atop my latte, pulled said finger gently through my pursed lips, and then trace it atop my friend's hand (or, you know, whatever), and suggest we go somewhere a little more private. Wink wink and all that.


(B) pretending we're the stars of a really heinous sitcom and engage in a hilarious spit take (or, you know, whatever) upon hearing her words, prompting the studio audience to fall into fits of laughter, and eventually make "You know, you're looking very MILFy tonight," become the show's initially hilarious, yet soon rapidly annoying catchphrase. Sort of like "The tribe has spoken," only cuter.

To be clear, regardless of the MILF-like mystique I was apparently emitting on this particular evening, I didn't think my friend really wished to begin engaging in any carnal delights with me before we had to pick up our respective kids from school each afternoon. I'm just not used to being referred to as such a fantastic (or, you know, whatever) mom. Even Tool Man refrains from referring to me as such, instead saying I'm his WWRLMDTIHTBHFFTFDOMANTPMTSBWIWTGHNA (Woman Who Randomly Let's Me Do Things I Had To Beg Her For For The First Decade Of Marriage And Now That's Pretty Much The Standard By Which I Want To Get Her Naked, Amen). In fact, he chuckled when I relayed this story to him later that evening, an unfortunate move which resulted in me not calling and/or making him my DILF (Which was a crying shame because I was hopped up on two lattes).

When the time came later that evening for my friend and I to part ways, we stood laughing in the parking lot, and set a date to get together again soon. "So, I guess this is goodnight," I said.

"Yes, I suppose it is," she replied, moving in closer.

"So...um...are we supposed to kiss now?" I gleefully inquired.

"I think a hug would be OK," she said.

"You just want to feel me up, don't you?" I cheered, jutting out my stained-sticked chest for her under the glow of the street lamp.

"Totally!" she cheered louder.

...then I ran my finger down her arm as we untangled from our embrace, and whispered, "I'll see you Tuesday night!"

And that, my friends, is the tribe having spoken.

It's ok for teenage boys and 20-something guys to talk about MILF's but I think it's creepy when women talk about it, mostly because my little brother used to talk about my friends that way back when, and it wasn't really a compliment. I mean, yeah they are saying you're hot, but using your mom-status in a sexual way, which is just too perverted for me. =P Why can't they just say, a WILF.

Mandy - Ha! Um, look up above. The sex that results in kids? Yeah, that part has now blown it for me!

Michael - Ah, the power of the written word!

Sam - I totally had my hair fluffed and ready for a night out last night that she cancelled on me! If she's cruising some other MILF I will have a MILF throwdown!

Bee - Heh, heh, heh. It got filled up!

Brian - Whenever I've been in doubt, I've always found you can't go wrong laying the blame on that pumpkin spice.

Savage - I totally heard it in my head the entire time. ;)

kelley - That would be an expensive latte for you, but go ahead and make travel arrangements at your convenience!

ct mom - Gah! I was going to play off that song and I completely forgot! I sang it, though, when I read your comment!

1blueshi1 - The school system rocks, the house next door to me just sold, but there's another one looming. I'll let you know!

Always home - Let me flick that lighter for you... :)

Chuck - My MILF Arena is totally like Thunderdome, which kicks ass hardcore!

Madame - The pumpkin spice latte is a new treat for me, and, based on what it's doing for me, I'll likely dive into a gingerbread one when they arrive.

Heinous - They will correct you if you say you want a large coffee. Just fyi!

Christina lee - Heh! I don't think I know enough slang words for anatomy to be a good Penthouse forums author!

graham's mom - I love your idea! It would cut down on those awkward 'mommy dance' moments!

stella blue - OH! We actually did take a belly dance class together! NOW I get what the attraction is!

Des - I am, in fact, a huge tease. I also am big on the tittering. :)

ftn - Step up on the stalking, doppleganger!

biscuit - It would take barely a sip of one, you magnificant hottie!

Meg - The way I routinely spill food and/or drink on my cleavage really does go a long way toward making me more adorable. Mostly lame and clumsy, though!

Eternal Sunshine - I'll now have to add the eggnog latte to my list of things to try, too!

Choppzs - I had no idea the power behind the pumpkin! Try one immediately!

ladyfi - I'm stunned to read there is a place on Earth that has yet to be inhabited by a Starbucks! Thanks for coming by. Sorry (?) it was on a MILF post! Hope you'll be back!

ali - You are totally hot and MILFable! I dedicated a song to you last night on Chag's Twitter Radio Show, but you must have been off doing other, potentially MILFy things!

Merecat - You're the sweetest to say that! Thank you! I know how you feel. Right now, I'm sitting here quite un-MILFish. However, I say we embrace the MILFishness any way we can!

tuesday girl - That you'd pay for my Starbucks coffee means I now love you!

that girl... - Mmmm...that Mr. Sweetypants would say that about my blog in an English accent makes me even more thrilled! However, he should really just be bracing himself for the heartbreak that will befall him when I steal you away from him!

Carolyn - Word!

Manager Mom - Double Word! It also takes him so long to call me that that I fall asleep before we can commence the pleasure, so good thing there's credit cards and Amazon. That's all me and my drawer full of treats are saying!

Lori - I'm still easing out of my stunned reaction, really. I had no idea a pastor's wife would know of MILFiness!

Chris - If necessary, sit down and breath into a paper bag!

Stiletto mom - Ha! I apparently need to get me one of those husbands who doesn't laugh when you tell him your girlfriend called you a MILF!

Papa - Heh. Stand upside down. It works better that way. I don't look quite as rough as Shannon D. from that angle!

BP Dad - I totally know it, Freddie Prinze Jr.! Sigh, oh, how we need a movie date... Not a Skinemax one, though, sadly. Tool Man doesn't spring for those fancy channels. I'm expected to make up those movies in my mind!

Twobusy - Equally as awesome! I always enjoy when you come over to visit!

jenboglass - They certainly don't pay attention to the porn hair in the same manner, that's for sure!

Chas - I still thank a big chunck of mine is buried under a ton of Legos and some questionable laundry hidden deep in the closet in my oldest kid's room! We'll get it all back soon!

RN Mommy - Heh! You think my chest wouldn't already be stuck out in your face?! Pfft! That's just crazy thinking right there! I missed the links, too, but I didn't want to scare him with all the MILFy talky talk!

Andrea - Amen! Never underestimate the power of a mighty bra! Some days it feels like that's the only way I get up!

Zip - You're right about the pumpkin thing! I forgot! Probably because I'm a cinnamon girl myself. You're also right about it feeling pretty damn good to get the affirmation from time to time. I'll raise another pumpkin spice latte to that!

Heather - Oh, I think sometimes, as moms, or just women in general, we have a tendency to just get together and outline all our faults and our 'gah, look at my ass! It's so big!' drama, so my friend and I are, it would seem, turning over a new leaf in that department and countering each other's gripes with something good about the other. As it is right now, I'll take what I can get!

Stacie - She totally had to cancel on me! However, I'm having lunch here soon with a different girlfriend, SO...we'll see what kind of powers I possess over her!

chat blanc - Ha! Oh, it is so totally a MILFmance at this point! I'm writing her love letter blog posts!

katie - You'd never get a word in edgewise to tell me nice things because I'd be going on and on about your cuteness and killer guns!

bejewell - Let me work on the hair. Right now, it's pretty flaccid again!

madwoman - It's like crack steamed with milk!
