So, I talk on a popular messenger with Carla all the time. She lives less than five minutes away, but we talk more on IM (instant messenger) than we do on the phone. We're just weird that way, I guess.
I got a good laugh out of our conversation today and just felt deep down I needed to share it just to show you how boring my life can be at moments. After receiving permission from Miss C, I did a little copy and paste. Just ignore any typos or grammatical errors because we really don't care.
Hope Tee: and i'm sitting here wondering what to eat because if fred isn't here...i don't want to cook a meat, complex carb, and green just for me.
Carla Girl: i'm just eating some white rice.
Carla Girl: i put a dab of butter on it...and some no salt
Carla Girl: its not bad.
Hope Tee: girl.i just can't eat rice like that
Hope Tee: it goes against my southern blood
Carla Girl: lol
Carla Girl: have a can of tuna
Hope Tee: without salad dressing and pasta?
Carla Girl: yeah, you can do it...
Carla Girl: lol
Carla Girl: bake a small potato in the microwave for 8 minutes
Hope Tee: hadn't thought of that
Hope Tee: have never cooked 'em in microwave either
Carla Girl: i believe its for 8 mins
Carla Girl: poke a fork in it to create some air holes
Hope Tee: will it explode if i don't? because that would be really cool if it did.
Carla Girl: omg, i don't know i've never tried it
Carla Girl: it wouldn't be any cool to have to clean it up
Hope Tee: that's why i got paige.
Carla Girl: i need to be out there mowing the front yard
Carla Girl: but i'm so lazy
Hope Tee: it's looking like rain...so really? There's no need because if you cut it then after the rain you'll have those weedy shooty up thingys and that would piss you off because you would have just cut it.
Carla Girl: yeah i guess so
Carla Girl: i just hate unkept grass
Carla Girl: its my pet peeve man
Hope Tee: it's not a favorite thing of mine either but that grass is gotta be dang tall for me to justify sweating
Carla Girl: i hear ya
Yeah, we're a laugh a minute, that Carla and I. Another moment to share, if you will. Last night my husband and I were discussing this season of Big Brother. If you have watched it, it's been enough to make your nerves seriously bad. It's down to a father-daughter team that really are dysfunctional.
So here went the conversation betwixt Fred and myself:
Fred: You know, I get the impression that Dick is the type of guy that would give you the shirt off of his back if you needed.
Miss Hope: Yeah, I think he would, too. But, I think he would slap you with it a few times for good measure before he handed it over.
And, we have one more moment to share........
Last night there was a commercial on television about losing weight. Paige is a beautiful gal that is curvaceous. She's not a stick like most her age and I just want her to see how feminine she is sometimes. (Sometimes, I'd rather her not, you know.)
Commercial: Take this drug and go from a size 12 to a size 2 !!!!!!
Me: That's crazy. A size 12 can be perfect for someone. Why be crazy about it? I'd kill to be a nice sized 12.
Paige: Me, too.
Pause a moment for new thought to enter Paige's head.
Paige: Yep, I sure would. Both hands around the throat.........
I laughed so hard because my child just comes up with stuff off the cuff sometimes that catches you off guard and can tickle you to no end.
Now, I'm off to get The Boy dressed for school and enjoy my time alone. Have I mentioned how much I LOVE school?
