There's a Jayhawk in my Car

KU Jayhawk inside my minivan.  I'm an MU graduate! 
Last night, on the way to ballet, I needed to return a Redbox DVD.  Our Redbox is located at so I swung in and parked in an "illegal" parking spot next to the Redbox machine.

I jumped out of my car...leaving the door open...and the next thing I know Jay is peeking into my car!  My kids were terrified.  HA!

Mary, dead serious, asked, "Mom, is it okay if I smiled at him?  He wasn't a tiger!"  
Hilarious!  (I've trained them well!)
(For non-Missourians/AKA BIG 12 Conference fans, the mascot for Missouri is the Tiger)


  1. And you just happened to have your camera on you as you jumped out to return the movie . . . you are amazing. I got the tiger reference right away. Too funny. Smart girl.

  2. Nope! As I was lamenting that I ALWAYS have my camera on me and didn't take it with me to drop off at ballet, the McDonald's manager ran out and asked if he could snap a picture of me! He was so kind and offered to email me copies!!!

    Love small-town living!

  3. "Rock Chalk, Jayhawk"
    One of my good friends from college went to KU. I love Lawrence--what a cute town! Actually, I really like the whole Kansas City area, it has that small big city feel. Hope you cool down soon. :)


  4. Go Tigers!!!

    Did you know who was behind this little trick???

    Too funny!


  5. My nephew Brad would totally love Jayhawk. He just turned two, and I love the way his face lights up when he sees a mascot. Oh man, I sometimes miss the joys of small-town living.
