Take a minute out for a special prayer and good healing thoughts for our pallies, Sharla and Sadie at Beaded Tail. Sadie has surgery today to check out a suspect lump and poor Sharla is very scared and worried. We love them both and hate to see Sharla so sad. We wish you good news today and a speedy recovery, Sadie!
Hot and heavy smoochin' too--not just a hug and a kiss. It was full blown, hands-all-over-the-back smoochin'. Like steaming-up-the-windows smoochin'. I just stood there staring--I think I was in shock. I mean, I never saw these people before and here they were--at some ungodly hour--necking in front of my house. It was very exciting. And appalling.
A few weeks later, Em comes home with a report, "Hey! Jimmy, from around the block? Well, his parent's are getting divorced. His mom has a boyfriend!" Uh...yeah. No kidding. Really, honey? Why would you say that? (I think that was the first time I had the scoop on anything around here.)
Fast Forward to marching season this year. At the very first band meeting, guess who walks in the door? Yep, Smoochy and his gal. Apparently they are married now-and they are all over each other at everything. It's just wrong. Band parent meetings and football games are not good smoochin' places--but I don't think these two care. Needless to say, right?
Super Fast Forward to this week: I'm pulling out of my garage on my way to work and I catch this idiot snapping lilacs off my neighbors lilac bush right next to my front window of the house. I mean, it wasn't like it was on the street or anything...it was up against the house.
Guess who? I busted Smoochy getting flowers for his gal.
I stopped my car and gave him the evil eye. I mean, this was stealing. It wasn't like this was a park or a neglected piece of property--this was my neighbor's well-kept meticulous yard and lilac bush. She would have been infuriated, as was I at his rudeness.
You should have seen him cower to his car. Homeboy broke all land speed records getting into his car and kicking the car into reverse. He backed all the way around the corner and shot off down the street. He apparently was too embarrassed to pass me.
Super Duper Fast Foward: Guess who walked into the band meeting tonight? And caught my eye. I could see it register that he totally knew who I was.
