Hey! There's a picture of a young Valerie Bertinelli. Thanks for stopping by, Valerie. I know many people think you are the Yoko Ono of Van Halen, but I disagree. I think Alex and Eddie Van Halen, like many great artists, are temperamental and therefore you get the bad rap because the fan boys can't hate on their man-crush heroes. Oh, by the way, people say I look like a young you. I think it's because of the brown eyes, hair, and big cheeks.
Yes, this rambling has a point, I'm short and rather youthful looking, if I do say so myself. So last night shouldn't have surprised or aggravated me in the least.
Katie was participating in our local Relay For Life for The American Cancer Society. She does this every year with her school. They stay up all night walking around a pathway to raise money for killing cancer.
raising money+ walking laps+ remembering cancer victims+staying up all night+ having fun = killing cancer
Well, teenagers need chaperones. I volunteered. First, I was harassed by one security guard because he thought I was a teenager. Okay, cool, I get it. I was wearing jeans, cons, and a t-shirt. The uniform of teens everywhere. It was dark but there was plenty of lighting and you were being a hard ass. Hmm, way to treat people who want to help kill cancer. Good Job Rent-A-Cop.
Later on, around midnight, leaving to go home from my chaperoning duties. Another security guard says,"we're checking all juveniles." as I am walking toward him.
My first thought is, okay cool... whatever you said makes no sense to me, and I keep walking.
Then he says it a second time.
I just look at him puzzled and keep on walking, now passing him, by maybe three feet.
Then he yells at me,"we're checking all juveniles."
"Okay, for what?" I ask while still walking away.
"Id. How old are you?" he yells. "You need to be with an adult to leave!"
"I'm thirty-four." I, sort of yell back.
"It's okay. I get it all the time."
By this point, the other security guard is laughing and I just want to go home.
*Puppet Master Time! In the comment section leave your ideas for main courses. You don't have to write the recipe just give me your ideas, lots of ideas. I need to have enough for voting and seven days worth of meals. Don't let the sous chefs starve! Matter of fact... don't let Valerie starve!
