I Am PEEVED!!!

You know my little budding photographer? The one who likes to take random pictures of household objects?


And sets up his toys, to take pictures of them?


Well, he was having another inspired moment with my camera, when he suddenly got the bright idea to take picture of himself drinking water. Only, it was more like taking a picture of water poured directly into the lens.

Yeah.

Needless to say, it might have screwed up the camera a bit. Oh, it still works. But now my pics look like this.




And this.



See the funny lines, like you're watching a TV from 1970, and the rabbit ears aren't lined up just right?


This is my not-happy-about-my-broke-camera face. (Please disregard the giant zit under my nose.)

Not cool, since it happened right before I ran a marathon, put on a concert, and leaving on a trip, where I'm probably going to me some famous people. So. Not. Cool.

TJ is going to have to be pulling a lot of weeds to pay me back the $400 that camera cost me.

So, I went and got me a 3-pack of disposable cameras at the store today for $12.99. Looks like that's what I'll be taking pictures with. I'm trying to figure out how to plug them into the computer, though.....HA ha!

I'm sure when I go to ask Danica Patrick if I can have my picture with her, she'll be sooo impressed with my state of the art 35 mm disposable camera.

I am peeved with you. Sorry about that Sher.

Annette Lyon said...

Totally beside the point, but how did the concert go? I was with you in spirit!

Kristina P. said...

Oh no! That sucks! Hope the concert went well, at least!

Melissa said...

Naughty naughty boy! If you run out of weeds for him to pull, feel free to ship him down south a bit.

For the record, my kids once used my camera to take a picture of one son "mooning" the other. Back in the day when you took your film to the store to be developed. I scared them straight about kiddie porn~ : )

Sarah said...

Same thing happened to me a while ago. Accept I only had myself to blame. I hadn't even had the camera for 6 months! At least I only had myself to blame!

Janice said...

My five year old "washed" our camera. After about 48 hours, it dried out and works great. Bring the camera with you, just in case.

susette said...

Oh what a great way to get your weeds pulled! I hope you follow through and really get him out there doing it.

I love your kitchen table and chairs. That's on my wish list :)

Have a lovely day cute friend ☼

Jillene said...

OH NO!! I am so sorry!! I hope that you really do make hime claen/weed/wash windows/clean toilets--etc. I am all about teaching them lessons.

I hope that you have a fun trip though!!

Peggy said...

Sounds to me like a good excuse to go buy yourself a new one!

I would be SOOO angry! I think I would be out for blood. I got a really good camera on overstock.com at a really decent price.

Emily said...

I just saw your title on Rachel's sidebar and had to come see what you were peeved about. Sorry about your camera! But you seem to have a pretty creative kid.

Lara said...

Have you taken it in to see about repair?

I would be SO ANGRY! And you just made me put my camera away. I'm so careless about leaving it sitting around. And mine cost me over 1K!

Jessica said...

That is too funny! Tyson always cracks me up! One day he'll be a famous photographer and have you to thank!

Jo said...

You did the post in such good humor! The boy was taking pics with my camera and making me very nervous. I bought him one of those fisher price ones so I didn't have to kill him in case something just like this happened! Now I have Baby though, and NO ONE is allowed to touch her. NOT even my beloved grandbabies.
I missed your party last night! Boo hoo, my man is working extra hard and didn't get home til 9:30. I hope it went well!

Now, Sher, just live in the moment. Being a mom is the closest thing to divinity you'll ever experience. I know a lady once who got mad at her child for busting her $400 camera and the next day his arm fell off. And then his leg. And then he was spit on by a venomous llama. I'll bet she wishes she could totally take back all those grumpy feelings and just love and hug her kid back when he, you know, had two arms. And that leg. And no giant zit under his nose from that crazy llama venom.

Think about that, Sher!

BTW, Motherboard says you full-on ROCKED the place at your concert last night! Is the position of President of Sher's Fan Club still open?

SO said...

Oh dear! Have you put the camera in a bag with Minute Rice? Supposedly that will suck out any extra water and maybe it will work better for you. It's worth a shot. I would be furious!

Becca said...

After a somewhat similar experience, my kids are no longer allowed to touch my camera. But that sucks for you--I'm sorry.

Erin said...

I read this right after you wrote it, and I even told my husband the story last night. And then I got on and realized I never commented. What is wrong with me?? So here's the comment: broken cameras suck. Enjoy the Indy 500. With a cheap camera.

Cadance said...

Oh..that really, really, really SUCKS!!!! I bet he feels really bad too...that is just too bad all the way around!!!!!!

Terresa said...

So sorry this happened. You could always try & play the Pollyanna "Glad game" and think it could've been worse. He could've borrowed the car & totaled it or something...(not that it helps repair the camera any)

AS Amber said...

He's naughty. Still bummed about not seeing your concert. Thanks for the after-concert texts though. As if I didn't feel crappy enough.

I laughed about you trying to plug that disposable into your computer.
