A Poem

I'm on my way to North Carolina today.  I actually left at about 4 a.m. Pacific time this morning.  Ugh!  

You have no idea how tired I am.  I'm also very behind on my email, etc. and I apologize for that.  This will hopefully be my last trip for awhile.  I hope to get caught up soon.

The purpose of this trip is to move my son to college for his freshman year.  (Yes, I'm sobbing!)  

Yesterday I was at the taping of two Dr. Phil episodes.  I will tell you all about my experiences there as soon as I can.  

Since I'm traveling, I thought I'd share two poems with you today.  One of my male friends sent them to me awhile back.  I've been saving them for a travel day when I knew I'd be too busy to write.

Also – remember you can still join me on Friday afternoon/evening in Charlotte if you live in the vicinity.  I'll be at Roosters restaurant for Happy Hour beginning around 4:30 in the afternoon.  I will be in very casual attire – probably jeans and flip flops. 

Do they wear flip flops in North Carolina?  : )

I'm getting really excited to meet some of my Carolina friends.  (Both South Carolina and North Carolina friends are going to be there!)


A Woman's Poem
Before I lay me down to sleep, I pray for a man, who's not a creep,
One who's handsome, smart and strong.  
One who loves to listen long.
One who thinks before he speaks,
One who'll call,
Not wait for weeks.
I pray he's gainfully employed,
When I spend his cash, won't be annoyed.
Pulls out my chair and opens my door.
Massages my back and begs to do more.
Oh!  Send me a man who'll make love to my mind,
Knows what to answer to, "How big is my behind?"
I pray this man will love me to no end,
And always be my very best friend.

A Man's Poem
I pray for a deaf-mute gymnast nymphomaniac with huge boobs,
Who owns a bar on a golf course,
And loves to send me fishing and drinking.
This doesn't rhyme and I don't give a shit.
The End.

    I’ve seen pictures of Ginger’s feet – I can say with absolute authority that yes, they wear flip flops in South Carolina.
    Wow – you weren’t kidding when you said he was going FAR away to college! Have a safe trip, and I’m sharing a sentimental *sniff* with you; I know how hard it is to have them live so far away.

    So this deaf-mute nympho gymnast. What’s her butt like? Because I’m not so shallow that I just want huge boobs.

    Isn’t GoGoInflight amazing? I tweeted about it recently ATL-SAN-ATL and GoGoInflight repaid me with a Follow Friday. I thought that demonstrated a great understanding of social media.
    Taking kids off to college is a whole ‘nother thing. I’ve only recently discovered your delightful blog (via Twitter). Is this your first? That’s a long way away. North Carolina is, however a great place to go to college. I did it and one of my three sons did also. (Neither of us went to Charlotte, a great town.) Good luck with all you do.

    Get your ass back here so we can go to lunch. I am taking my baby to College on Friday. Why are we both flying across the nation to deposit our children when CA is full of great colleges?
    I can’t wait to hear about the Dooce taping and talk to you about our boys! Call me when you get home. I will back SUnday night.
