Why it is Cool to Play GI Joe and GI Jane


       It’s all about perspective people. To sum it up if you don’t like how crazy the title sounds well then you are not even close to being cool.

So between my boyfriend and myself we have 4 kids, okay so ¾ of the kid percentage is mine, but that’s not the point. The point is when we have to travel somewhere all together, we have to drive in separate vehicles. Pain in the butt most days, but today was LEGENDARY. On the way to the Mother’s Day family cookout, which is an hour away, the boys all rode in the car with my boyfriend and the girls, myself and my daughter, rode in my car. The boys had decided they were going to take water guns to the cookout and not fill them up with water, but just use them to play GI Joes.  Okay, so as we are driving down the road I receive a text.

Boyfriend: “Apparently the joes just blew ur car out of the water.”

Me: “Bahaha! Y’all r CRAZY!  Autumn and I are laughing.”

         As we are driving down the road the next thing I see is a plastic water gun sticking out the window on the driver side shooting at us. Followed by…..

         Boyfriend: “I so shot out ur tires”

         Me: “We need a suction cup dart gun!!! GI Janes will always win!!!!”
         Boyfriend: “U r outnumbered 4 to 2”

         Me: “We r much stealthier!!!”

We start driving on the bridge when my daughter suggests we throw the GI Joes in the water. To which I gladly text.

         Me: “Autumn said we should throw u in the water”

         Boyfriend: “U cant if u cant catch us”

         Me: “Watch out we have spies and snipers ahead”

         Boyfriend: “Haa u alerted us to soon! Now we r ready”

     We had to stop at a stop sign to turn heading closer to our cookout destination. It gave the GI Janes enough time to roll down the windows and use our “finger/Hand gun” to shoot the GI Joes mustang.  Since we were out in the country (more so than usual) and driving down a long road (nobody in sight) we passed the GI Joes and shot them as we drove by. My daughter thought that we better keep an eye on those sneaky boys, so she put up a stuffed cat and elephant in the back window to watch them.

         Me: “Y’all sooo got shot. We’re watching u”

         Boyfriend: “Ur cat just window farted us”
         Me: “Lmfao. Autumn said we r gun proof and invisible.”

         Boyfriend: “U would be but we have u on infrared.”

         Me: “We realized our 3rd GI Jane got left at home in the pen. Autumn said she has skills to take over all computers! Bwahahao”
(I should state here that our 3rd GI Jane is our dog and not another child we keep in a pen. We almost never leave our kids in a dog pen. hehe)

         Boyfriend: “Except Stephen uploaded a virus to hack her”

         Me: “Until he realized he just opened the exact file we sent to give us access to  all ur files. We have the info we need and our computers self destruct in 5…4…3”

         Boyfriend: “One problem we have the best weapon ever. Snake eyes in our back seat! Ching!!”

         Me: “Maybe u should double check….”

       Anyway we finally made it to the cookout. It’s hard to say who won because there are no losers, but the GI Janes totally won. I know you agree. I have to say that was the best Mother’s Day ever! This is why we are the coolest people you know. ;)


P.S. Nobody was harmed in this story. All involved our law abiding citizens. No laws were broken, nor endangerment of any lives. GI Janes rule the world!
