Mean People

The rockstar has told me on more than one occassion I am "too uppity" for our laid back little town. We live in the poorest county in the state because my honey likes the country life (destitution is what I call it). The general attitude of the population is pitiful ...there is not a lot of opportunity and people become depressed after years of making meth and smoking pot all day. I just felt the need to give a little background before telling this story so you could picture it more acurately...

We got in from New Orleans late Sunday night so I took Monday off. Monday I was going to spend checking on my family and friends and making sure everyone made it through their week without me ...I got out early to run some errands before making my rounds and I stopped by the post office (because you can't keep a mailbox longer than a week in the country) ...When I went in I spoke to the old man on the bench (yes the post office is the local hot spot where I live ...people actually hang out there) and gave him my big flashy smile (as usual) I put my key in the box and hear "They ain't no maaaail 'day" I said "okay well I'll try again tomorrow" (fast and friendly) He says (very slowly/not so friendly) "It's presidents day" So I respond "Well, Happy Presidents Day" and sort of chuckle. He says "How about, Happy you're a big fat dummy day" ...WTF? Happy You're a big fat dummy day??? Listen here mr. ...I just came back from Dixieland ...where the food was De-Lish ...if I'm packin' a few extra pounds I have a very valid excuse and further more "I AIN'T NO DUMMY" Hmmp ...mean unfriendly people.

    Its a little known fact, That Big Fat Dummy Day is celebrated in the southern counties of the great state of Indiana, oddly enough it coincides with the day the rest of the country celebrates Presidents Day.

    Or, Just perhaps the gentleman was commenting on the fact that he thought Presidents were big fat dummies, and his comments were not directed toward you.

    Good morning!

    hmmm ...I like that scenario a little better ...thanks for shedding light on a dark place;)

    Yeah, I like John's story...he was talking about presidents being big fat dummies! Doesn't matter, he's the one hanging out at the Post Office when "they ain't no mail," sheeesh...what kind of looser does that? At least in MY little town, they only spend regular business days there!

    I think I need to come up and open up a can of whoop ass! Nothing like a good push-kick to the balls and a right round house with my foot up the side of this head. At least that way, I'd only have to buy new shoes :)

    And next time...you need to come to Georgia for a little something else that is de-lick...I mean de-lish ;)

    JQP ..you and I would not be good for each other ...as much as we love to eat we'd be fatty patty's by spring;)

    Anon ...the right round house reminds me of all the times Rainbow dragged my butt to the gym for kickboxing ...I just went along to look cool ..that stuff liked to have killed me ..I'm so glad we're past that!

    well sweet-pea...

    I am sure we could think of a few things to keep those pounds away...
    God, knows I can...

    but if not, what bad about being fat and happy?

    oh, time form a pic of R-B...
    pref. nude, none of the ones I took turned out...

    WHAT DO YOU THINK THIS PLACE IS? SOME KIND OF VIRTUAL NUDIST COLONY? PUT SOME CLOTHES ON!!!

     
  • At 12:55 PM, Blogger Rainbow-Bright said…

    Who doesn't have any clothes on? I wanna see!!!

    SS, I was just trying to help you get in shape...it was for your own good really. But, I guess after all that clubbin' you were just too tired. Sorry Sweetie!

    And JQ, I'll post a pic sometime but don't count on it being nude. While I do have such photos, I can't imagine posting them to have them moved to some sleazy porn site and it turn be downloaded (free, might I add) by horny, lonely men. Oh wait, maybe I will...that doesn't sound SO bad! ;)

    BTW, did you see I called the guy a "looser" in my previous comment?!
    Hmmmp, I'm the "loser" cause I can't spell. LOL

     
  • At 12:59 PM, Blogger John Q. Public esq. said…

    well, I am nude...

    and dont shout at me, it makes me cry....


    oh, and on cry'en like a little girl, Mrs JQP rented 5 ppl you meet in heaven, I JQP must of gotten something in my eye, because they sure were watering...

    hell R-B, I wouldnt share with anyone, just ask S-S, she sends em to me all the time, LOL

    JQP

    Tired? hmmmp ...I was just too fat ...big girls can't do that stuff!

     
  • At 1:29 PM, Blogger Strawberrie-Shortcake said…

    I read the book JQP ...I didn't cry. ...maybe the movie was better?? LOL. It did make you think..

    I read the notebook and cried for days ...try renting that one;)

    ...and will you put some clothes on. You're scaring the children ...buy a razor man

     
  • At 1:35 PM, Blogger John Q. Public esq. said…

    its not hair, its a pelt... and Mrs. JQP love to comb in out for me, she said when we are down home I can get corn-rows put in, pure sex...

     
  • At 1:37 PM, Blogger Strawberrie-Shortcake said…

    Well right now it looks more like a corn stalk ...now put your clothes on;)

     
  • At 1:54 PM, Blogger Winning Loser said…

    Ignore senile old men sweetie. They think the world runs just for them and everyone owes them a living because they made it that far without dying.

    I swear, I finally get a chance to start posting and people are running around nude. If we are sharing nudies, I can share a few... or are you meaning of ourselves? I can't share those, I am far too shy.

     
  • At 1:59 PM, Blogger Strawberrie-Shortcake said…

    Hey Loser! What out now ...you know me and JQP go way back and come from the same southern roots. That's cause for a mud rollin' ;)

    How ya been sweetie? Where've you been ...I've left messages for you "virtually" everywhere.

     
  • At 2:03 PM, Blogger Winning Loser said…

    I have tried to comment some but I have been feeling like a coon mauled by a hound for the past few days. (How's that for southern?) I'm glad you have made it back and are posting again, I missed you. I have missed everyone. Now if I start feeling better soon I will be back to my goofy self that everyone has come to love.

     
  • At 12:39 PM, Blogger ananonymousgirl said…

    I love to kickbox. I'm limber enough now that I can get my leg up really high...oh...I think that got everyone's attention. Just imagine all the lovely things you can do being limber...

    purrrrrrrr

    Let's just all have a big orgy in Georgia! We can wallow in the mud, eat grits, and cover each other in peach juice. Any takers?

     
  • At 4:19 PM, Blogger Rainbow-Bright said…

    Hey, AG...I'm in, except the grits!I can't stand them, guess I'm not really a southern after all. Mud sounds good though, some Georgia red clay, perhaps?
