Too Bad I Didn't Have My Gun On Hand

Imagine a slob in his 20’s.  This fellow has long blonde greasy hair, bloodshot eyes, huge earring things in each ear, dirty clothes (shorts and an undershirt/tank), and really bad B.O.  Now imagine how I felt when he came through my line and asked me if I was single.  What was I supposed to say?  Yes?  So I fairly glared at him and said, "I am NOT available!"  I assure you, my answer would have been the same to any fellow.  I shuddered when he left and indignantly told a fellow associate, an older gentleman, "Did you see that creep that just went through my line?  He asked me if I was single!"  My co-worker quickly examined my left hand and said, "You gotta get yourself a ring."


So, on to better news.  James can suddenly talk.  A few minutes ago I was given "wiping duty", which really means you stand in the bathroom for 5-8 minutes while your four year old brother informs you that there are "still poopies in my tummy".  He told me, "Um, you can go out if you really want to."  That is the fullest sentence I’ve ever heard from him.

I am reading "From Basic to Baghdad" by J.B. Hogan in addition to more substantial books right now.  I read it 2-3 years ago, but it is just as funny the second time through.  It is a sarcastic/dry humor and one of the only books that makes me laugh out loud.

And lastly, I think that raw goat milk is a cure-all.  I was having knee trouble for a few weeks along with stomach aches.  I had to wear a tight bandage around my knee so that it wouldn’t hurt so bad at work.  But when we started milking the goats again (long story, but our fence wasn’t working for a while) and I drank it daily, my knee and stomach felt so much better.  Plus, it is fun to have a jar labeled "Raw Goat Milk" in the HD fridge.  I believe all my co-workers think I dropped off another planet.  I plan to keep it that way.

    Each of your posts enlighten me to what is going on at the Igs. Sometimes I learn more than I really really wanted to know. But hey – it IS great that James is talking.

    I will drop you off the "stuff" later. Rmeember don't put them together or they will explode..

    ps – please tell your momsie that my neck is feeling better. I think I sprained it.

    pps – Can you haul again? We are going to do another


    ppps- Mr Roy said that it may indeed have been the dog food. Thanks for the info!

    Ok so I am old and not a really young chic like I used to be *sigh* but when I read your intro to this creepy guy I wanted to know more.

    Kudos to you for not making any compromises. I am impressed with your ability to just say "NO" loud and clear. When I was younger I was waaayyyy to shy to even squeak and would have probably humored him for lack of ability to say what I really thought. I am so happy that a young person can articulate her stance and not leave herself open to any individual to question her.

    You go Girl! As for the little brother stuff, well, I have boys and my little one that is on the way is going to be a boy. What can I say? They are BOYS!! Through and through! 🙂

    Glad you spoke up! You don't need a ring, you just need to keep going with the level head God has given you!

    I wonder how honored the Hogan's would feel if they saw that their book endorsement directly followed the sentence, "I still have poopies in my tummy".

    WHAT?! You rejected him? but, he was poor…

    And by the discription, he sounds like a lunahick. He would have suited you.

  5. Wow

    Oh Coie!! that does not sound fun. Did you really glare?

    I don't think you should get a ring just so people wont ask if your single. :o) Have a great day!

    Actually, Mom, credit to Bo on the Lunahick joke…I stole it from him. When we were in the dining room he showed me his two lost teeth and he burst out laughing suddenly saying that he looked like a Lunahick….but he didn't need to lose the teeth to look like one, though…

    Lunahick– that is hilarious– I'll have to use that sometime… actually, around these parts I'm sure it will be OFTEN.

    Not sure about the goat's milk. I keep meaning to try it… is it really good taste-wise? Is the kind you buy at the store even comparable?

    No advice regarding advances from gentleman customers. Oooo… now <i>that</i> sounded creepy, didn't it?! No advice about guys hitting on you. Better to smile and then say <i>NEXT IN LINE PLEASE!</i>

    When I was a young gal and a checker in a grocery store, I wore a ring on the telltale finger, and for several years after that too. (Until it was replaced by a "real" one from my husband!) I don't know if it helped, but I felt like it made some sort of a statement. That and the "don't mess with me" vibe!

    That last comment was me- not that you know me. But there it is, I'm signed in now.

    Ooo. Great. A creepy guy asking you if your single. I would have done the same thing to the creep! And I'd take the older guys advice. 🙂 Somewhat. 😛
