Mom, It's Not Porn! I Swear!

I decided to not taint my New Year's post with this mortifying story yesterday, but it's too funny to not share!

I spent New Year's Eve at my mom's house. Family time just sounded nice this year. Shortly after the countdown led us into 2011, my brothers began to heckle the TV (they weren't very amused by the Kathy Griffin/Anderson Cooper duo on CNN).

My family just extended their Direct TV package, so I took the remote and started browsing through the new channels. Now, I really like Hung on HBO. For those of you who don't know of it, it's a half hour show about a newly single dad who's also a basketball coach at his kids' high school ... who happens to fall into male prostitution after his house burns down. It's a sort of dramedy!

Long ago I tried to sell my mom on the show, so when I saw it on the menu the other night I decided to stop for a second to show her what I had been talking about. Well ... I turned to the show mid-sex scene (remember, it's an HBO show)! My 17 and 19 year old brothers let out the most horrified noises, and my mom's mouth dropped. So I did what any panicked and mortified person would do ...

I looked at the remote that didn't belong to me, couldn't find the right buttons to change it, threw it across the room and hid my head in my hands until someone else got up and changed it!

I'm now the perv of the family.
