The Night I Had To Pinch Myself

February 22, 2012


Erin Schrader

Once upon a time there was a girl named Erin.
And everywhere that Erin went, her Ipad seemed to follow.
On Sunday, February 19th Erin and her Ipad fell asleep on the couch together.
Those two sleepy heads woke up around 10 pm and naturally–
Erin had to say hello to her Ipad.
So she turned it on–
opened her email–
and thought
“Hey that’s weird. Why is Twitter blowin’ up my inbox?!”
So naturally–Erin clicked on a random email from Twitter.
And this is what she opened it up to:
This caused Erin to only be able to yell one thing.
{Because whenever Erin gets excited–she tells whatever made her excited to shut up}
And then she proceeded to yell to her husband
“Guess who is following me on Twitter!!!”
“Seriously. Guess”
“No like oh my gosh, you will never believe who is following me on Twitter”
But then it gets better-
Erin opened up her Twitter account and wham bam thank you ma’m.
This is what she saw:
Miss Queen G just tweeted–me?
I’m over the 3rd person talk for the remainder of the post–
we are now referring to Erin as me.
There is something about 3rd person talk that gets creepy real quickly.
Okay back to that tweet–did you catch the part that said
And then the part that said “I’m hooked on your blog”
but what about the part that says
“You have the sweetest “About” I have ever read?!”
Say whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat?
Instantly I freaked.
And then I exclaimed “Oh my gosh, I have to tweet her back!!!”
So naturally–I grab that Ipad and I start writing all sorts of things to Giuliana.
I think my first tweet went a little bit like
and then I switched it to something a little freakish to–
but then that husband of mine saw what I was typing and piped in instantly
“No. No. No. No. You can not act like a obsessive freak about this”
“You need to act cool, calm, and collected”
I need to act like I have A-list celebrities follow and tweet me everyday.
So then being the smarty pants that I am, I said to that husband of mine
“So what? I should respond with something like–
 “Oh. That’s neat.”
or maybe something a little simpler like
or heck, if we are playing real calm and collect maybe I should just say
“I am sorry–Giuliana…Giuliana who?!
 I don’t think I am quite sure who you are?! Please introduce yourself.”
After much debating and thinking, my tweet back went a little something like this:
The remainder of the night was spent blaring old school Juvenile–
“Move it slow motion for me…”
Bouncing around like the biggest freak of nature you’ve ever seen–
and pinching myself.
Yes, this was the first time I’ve ever pinched myself.
But people–it was a much deserved pinch.
Kids–this kind of stuff doesn’t happen to me.
Needless to say–
Sunday, Feb 19th marks one of the top 5 moments of my life.
Right behind:
 The day I discovered mac & cheese–
Oh and the time that I found a chunky necklace at Banana Republic for $4-
Can’t forget about the day I became potty trained. That’s pretty important stuff
And one other thing. What was it? Yes, I remember now–
Okay your right–I might have been more excited about this than any of the above.
Minus the wedding people, calm down.
Now if you will please excuse me, I am off to continue floating on cloud nine…
…and picking out my outfit for the first date I have planned for Giuliana and I. 
I’m thinking shoppingpedicurescocktails–and some type of red carpet event.
G–your life just got a lot more exciting 😉
