Yesterday morning, I woke up with this in my YouTube inbox:
The message was directed to my dear friend Karen who has appeared in many of my videos. For awhile, she was a nanny for AAron & Stephanie, regulars on the running channel vlogs, and did vlogs with their baby girl. Even though she states that she is a nanny, people would still mistaken the baby for hers.
I ignored the message until I got an email from Karen:
I looked back and finally read the message realizing the person thought Karen & I had a baby. Remember, this is me who we are talking about. A grossly single & no luck with girls having a kid with Karen, the person who uses me as a punching bag. A baby? WOW!
To which I responded:
“Omg is right! Hilarious!”
That is until I noticed the username: 77360645.
At first, I thought those were just random numbers. Then my eyes broke up the numbers into something that I can recognize: 773 & 60645.
773 is one of Chicago area codes. 60645 is the zip code where I grew up 15 years of my life. It then all dawned on me. I promptly emailed Karen back saying:
“Omg! That is my mother! She thinks I had a kid with you.”
Folks, my mother thought I had a baby with my friend Karen. Might I also add that the video is over almost 2 years old, so she probably thinks I’m hiding a toddler & grandchild from her. I will add that her stating the baby is cute is a false statement. She is using it as a coy way to get a response.
My own mother thinks I have a secret baby. What. The. Eff?
I hate to admit this but Internet, my mother is a YouTube troll. I am so ashamed.
