As I look around, I realize that I am THE ANCIENT ONE. . I'm almost old enough to be some of these kids grandmother!! I feel old then. I mean if my oldest had had a kid when he was 18, then my grandchild would be 15 or if he had become a father sooner then I could have a 17 or 18 yr old for a grandchild. . I've got one foot in the grave. . My bones are melting. . You don't even need to throw water on me for this. .
Oh yeah, back to the Phi Theta Kappa thing.
Have I ever mentioned that I absolutely HATE to dress up? I'm a boots, jeans, Tshirt kinda gal. Give me gloves and let's put up a fence, feed the cows, oh yeah, that's me. I always wanted to have some land with horses, cows, dogs and cats. Middle of no where. Oh yeah. . hmmmmmm..
Dang! There I go again getting off the subject! SOOOO I have to dress up and I have been told that I CANNOT wear black jeans and a black shirt and be called dressed up. I have ONE dress in my closet and I am NOT wearing it to this shindig.
My thing about dressing up is the heels. I always feel like I'm gonna put my foot down the wrong way and then arms go flying, legs all up in the air and WHAM! I land on my very padded tush! The walls will shake and the floor will rumble and the lights will flicker. Some will think a storm has hit. Then the lights will come back on and all they will see is me on my butt on the floor.
Can they just slide me across the floor? As I slide on by, I'll even smile and do the Miss America wave. Think I could get them to just do that instead of me trying to walk in heels, fall and embarrass us all?
I promise not to yell "WOOHOO!!! What a ride!!" if they will do this. Really, I'll be good, well, sorta, maybe. .
Hope you kackled today.
