not a bad problem to have…

14 Jul

…but a problem nonetheless…

I’ve been losing some weight recently (go me!) and today I realized that while this is great, I now need to go shopping. Darn it, I know.

My pants have been literally hanging onto my hips by a prayer all day today and have been driving me crazy. I’ve been awkwardly hitching them up all day long and not wanting to walk anywhere for fear of mooning my office peeps.

For instance, I had a meeting today so I’m lugging armloads of color coded Excel spreadsheets and other enthralling documents across campus while muttering to that little known Patron Saint of Waistbands to please not let my pants fall down, and if he spares me this embarrassment that I promise I will go buy some new pants, or at least a belt right after work!

And so, that’s where I’m goin’. Don’t you love it when I tell you these things? Mwah!

to my BFF

14 Jul

Go read the comment in my quotes post below…I’ll wait.

That’s Amanda. My BFF from back in the day, and still. I think anyway, ahem…see how she treats me? Callin’ me “weird” and wonderin’ why we’re friends? (And probably wonderin’ why I like to leave the letter g off the end of words and use an apostrophe instead.) Little does she know that I think she’s the weird one.

Just kiddin’ lady, but you do raise an interesting question. I have no idea why we’re friends either. We’re polar opposites. You’re a tried and true country girl who knows how to rope a calf, barrel race and strip tobacco. I have no idea how to do any of those things, thank God. I didn’t know what a farrier did and had never seen a brand new foal (or is it a colt?) until I met you. I’ve always envied your contentment with things. I’ve always wanted to get outta our little town and move to the big city and you always wanted to stay right where you were.  Me, I’m always wishin’ for something bigger, better, more exciting.

Ya’ll should see the looks she used to give me when I wanted to go shopping and she wanted to go camping. She thinks I’m crazy and boring and I wonder why she wants to pretend to be a homeless person.  So she goes camping and I go shopping, separately. We do our own thing and that’s the way it works for us.

Oh, remember that time we were at Tootsie’s and we saw those two girls coming up the stairs? One had on cowboy boots, western shirt and cowboy hat. The other girl wore a denin mini skirt, sandals and a girly tank. We immediately looked at each other and burst out laughing. That was us! Exact opposites but best buds.

I love and miss you girl! But you know how I hate talking on the phone…email me!
