friday's letters


Dear hair, 
I know it's my fault you're a crunchy, frizzy mess. I shouldn't have bought that max hold hairspray, but it was on sale and I couldn't help myself. Never again, I promise!

Dear lungs, 
I know I've promised to quit smoking before and let you down, bare with me, when summer is over I swear I'm going to give it another shot!

Dear old people, 
I know driving makes you feel independent but if you can't see 3 feet in front of your wrinkled face and your reaction time is that of a sloth maybe it's time to throw in the keys .... I'm tired of almost getting hit by you every time I try to cross the street.

Dear bailey,
Naps are a privilege, do you have any idea what momma would give to have a scheduled nap every single day?? wait till you're older and you'll regret not taking advantage of them now!

Dear weather,
When bigger chicks get sweaty, it's not pretty, tone it down. thanks!

Dear white trash that lives across the alley from me,
Stop throwing your beer cans in my trash cans and get your own!

5 question friday

1. What's your favorite childhood snack that you still eat as an adult?

What I remember most from being a child is eating flakies and jos louis cakes ... do they still make these?? If so I haven't seen them in a very long time and you bet your ass I'd still eat them! 

2. What food will you not eat the low fat version of?


3. What's your favorite way to cool off in the summer?

hitting the pool, drinking iced coffee drinks, or laying around the house with the central air blasting.

4. What's your favorite summer read?

The only time I have to read is before bed, right now I'm reading a collection of short stories from Jack Ketchum I found on a top ten disturbing novels website. It's pretty disturbing, the stories so far deal with twins who have sex with each other and then turn into zombies, a mother who blows her sons head off and other stories of rape and incest, not for the faint of heart!

5. What are you doing to stay cool in the awful heat?

2 words .... swimming pool.
