Request Granted

This post is at the request of my AC, who is part of the story. And I'm totally giggling just remembering!

Background Info:
My Mama drove my truck for a few days while I was on a trip and loved it. So she bought herself one. The exact one. My Mama buys new cars like they're earrings.

I used to go get a mani every two weeks at Style Salon downtown.

OK, the story goes like this:
I was just leaving Style after a Mani, apparently about 3 seconds (literally) before AC walked in for an eyebrow wax. She pulled up in her schnazzy little jeep at Palafox and Gregory, and happened to look over at the stoplight across the median where she saw my truck and a person driving which she thought was me. So she proceeds to jump around waving and yelling, "ASH HAM!" and as the truck begins to go through the light the person driving is waving back frantically. AC yells, "I LOVE YOU!" to the truck and the truck driver yells, "I LOVE YOU TOO!" about the time AC realizes it isn't me. All the while I'm about a half block away trying to walk without smudging my nails. How funny is God??

So my phone rings, and it's Mama, and I manage to answer it without doing too much damage to my nails. Mama proceeds to tell me that she just met the CUTEST Fairly while she was driving because an, "Adorable girl was getting out of a Jeep on Palafox and started waving at her and yelling that she loved ME! So I yelled I loved her back!"

"Mama, did you know who it was?"

"No, I didn't know who it was, Ash, but when someone yells they love you you just say it back! And she was jumping and waving!"

"She was in a Jeep? That must have been AshMatt. How did I miss her?"

"I don't know, but if it was please tell her she's SOOO cute!"

"Isn't she? OK, I will!"

Then, about 45 minutes later I get an email from Ash telling me that she thinks she just met my mother on the street, to which I replied, "Yep- that was her!"

And, once again, my Mama makes a big impression! Not to mention Ash!
Did I miss anything, Ash? Leave out any good parts?

Playing with and keeping up with my nephew and niece take up a lot of my time. Van Geaux takes up the rest of it. Work is an afterthought most days! I like to be outside- but not when it's too hot. I get bored at my desk all day. Niki keeps my world spinning and without her and AC I'd lose it. My work ethic crashes at 4 p.m. daily and I live my sweet puppy and my hedgehog whenever I am not at Niki's. I truly believe naps are quality pass-time events, and sometimes I say bad words at work. I'm pretty sure I'm insane on multiple levels and I believe rules don't apply to me.
It seems that my life is quite entertaining. I didn't realize this myself, but was informed of it by my friends- who are rather entertained by tales of my life occurrences.

I'm far from a professional writer. These are just stories, comments, and other items for simple amusement. Hopefully it's a fun read, as Shannon plans to edit it into a book one day! Maybe we'll become famous, and maybe we'll just have some good laughs at my expense (and some other characters in my life). Either way, happy reading!
