The New Nacho Club

Well as many of you know, I eat with a group of women every Thursday and we call it Nacho Club.  This excursion started for me 12 years ago and it had actually been going on a few years before I started.  When I first began, it was cheerleader moms (and Debbie).  We would discuss all kinds of important matters concerning cheerleading, pep rally's, hanging those darn sheet signs on the fence and blowing up all those balloons for the pep rally and then of course, what we would hear that our kids would  might be doing after the game or on weekends.  It was a great way to stay informed and let me tell you young mothers or those that will be one day - you MUST stay informed.  The kids called it gossiping, but I think it is a major way of protecting your child from all kinds of mischief.  Of course, none of us have had kids in public school for some time now so we have become a real support group for each other.  We can tell anything that is on our minds to this group of women and we know it won't go outside of that meeting - mainly because we can't remember it long enough to tell someone by the time we pay for our lunch ticket! :)  We have dealt with MIP's, stalkers, great train robberies, awful relationships our kids have had, wedding and baby showers, deaths of parents, etc, etc.  The list could go on forever.  We don't have to remember birthdays or anniversaries (which is a relief for those of us without memories.)  It is just a wonderful hour to sit and laugh and admit when we have done something really stupid cause we are all pretty much alike in that respect.

Well, today was the beginning of a new Nacho Club.  The name more than likely will need to be changed.  We haven't voted on it yet, but we did discuss how the name might need to be revised.  See if you can tell from this picture what has happened to the old Nacho Club.
The new Not-Sho I-Phone Club!
Today Teresa was sporting an i-phone!  She and I were the last two hold outs and she gave in!  Now I am the only one with a Motorola Razr.  All they do is discuss which APPS they like this week.  Today it was the BUMP.  Everyone of them downloaded this app and then proceeded to start bumping all their phones!  IN THE RESTAURANT!  At one point, I told them, "Don't look now, but there is a whole line of people on the other side of the 4' wall watching how funny you all are."  Dottie's face started getting red and said "Not really?"  I had to admit I had made that up, but I do believe the entire restaurant could hear them telling each other about their i-phones and how to work them.  No need to worry anymore kids!!!!  You are NOT being discussed - unless of course you have created your own APP - and THEN, they MIGHT talk about you! ha  I am really thinking when the old Razr goes out, I will still save it and carry it in to Nacho Club so they will never know I gave in.  Or maybe better than that, I will have to start carrying the I-Pad so mine will be bigger than theirs!  It is really kind of scarey - six women with such powerful little machines in their hands.  They could change the world!!  Everyone needs a support group and for that, we seven women are VERY BLESSED!  We have the best one ever.  It doesn't happen over night, so start yours now.  Between these women and the Lord, I can conquer anything!
Have a Blessed day!

  4. You know, people throw out "lol" Left and right these days, but this is truly a LOL moment for me! Especially the part about the kids not being discussed anymore unless they created an app. Ha! 12 years is a long time...

  5. hahaha~ love this post, cathy! {and love that all the "not discussed" kids are the ones commenting on this post.

    Mom called me immediately to tell me about the bump and I said, "Oh yeah, you bump and it shares information?" and she says, "YOU KNEW ABOUT THIS AND DIDN'T TELL ME!" ooops!

    I absolutely think you need to one up them with the iPad! They would never spend that kind of money on a silly thing... wink wink=)
