Um, is the Pope catholic?
Lately, thanks to my foray into the world of selling my shirts at The Pink Pantry, and then putting the baby on the floor of The Pink Pantry so I can make myself a nice decaf Mocha latte behind the counter, I have been meeting lots of people. When they ask who I am, I say “I’m Mommy Needs a Cocktail.”
“Oh,” they say, “you are the Shirt Lady?”
“That, and I’m ‘Mommy Needs a Cocktail.”
It seems to have the general population stumped. I then have to wander into my little schtick about how I blog, and that I was blogging BEFORE I made t-shirts and how I did it all by my lonesome. So when all the technicalities are out of the way, I get the inevitable, “are you gonna blog about me?”
To be honest, you had better be interesting or at least be on the road to interesting far enough along so I can take creative license to get you all the way to funny. Or you can just do something really stupid, like have the cable run through my yard so that when my fence guys knock on the door to apologize for accidentally cutting the cable that I DON’T have, you can then get really pissy at me for cutting your cable line that is running underground on MY property and for putting up a fence on the property line that just happens to be 25 feet from your house. Your house that you put on the property line of your 6 acres that looked even bigger than 6 acres with those nice woods that are mine and are now comfortably located within, I believe you described to me as, “one of those ugly fences that I don’t want associated with MY property.” You are going to make the blog for stupid crap like that. The title to that post will most likely be “how to welcome the new folks to the neighborhood.” You will probably also make the blog for the stupid crap your son does, like driving up the hill in reverse at 30 mph. Never fear. At 17, his 6 months driving experience means that we will all be safe around here.
Now, if you tell me a story about how your 10-year old son just discovered boobs and how you were so proud of his love of boobs that is not unlike your love of boobs, you are probably going to make it front and center on Mommy Needs a Cocktail.
It was nice meeting you today, Darren. Love your coffee.
