Yeah, I’m a Yankee Bitch, but still y’all, YEEEEEHAW!!!

My HME is coming to visit! My HME always makes people ask What’s an HME? and again, I tell you, my HME is a person. Maybe her name’s Hattie Mae Eller, you don’t know. This ain’t her blog, you don’t need to know who she is ferreal, just that she is one of my favorite people in the whole wide world and she has been my friend through thick and thin these last … I am bad at math … since …  MTV played music videos and people thought the internet was a phase.

Oh my goodness, we were so young. So young we got up early to run, but also so young we smoked IN coffee houses WHILE drinking caffeinated coffee in the middle of the night. So young the word ‘calorie’ was merely used academically, no practical application needed. So young we used answering machines, checked them from phone booths, and our brains stored phone numbers. Hell, we were so young we dated Republicans.

Around this time:

Which happens to be a song I listened to on the way home.

And also this:

And this:

Cause my commute is short and Cause MY HME IS COMING!

Tremendous day is tremendous!

Happy Friday Everyone!

    Have an extreme amount of laughs and snorts and good times with the HME! Have adult refreshment! Eat cake! Do whatever you feel (that doesn’t require bail money)! Enjoy!

    It seems redundant to say “have a good time” but have a good time. I’m happy for you.

  7. …”and our brains stored phone numbers”! You know I have no phone numbers but mine, He-Man’s and the old number I used to give to guys who asked for my number that I didn’t want to have my number, but gave them a number to make them go away in my head that I can rattle off just like that! That last one didn’t happen often being a plain girl, but every girl/woman needs a number like that!

    It’s a mistake letting that skill go. I’ve been meaning to get right on that and memorize my kids numbers… but, iPhone has it which oh, so, convenient, so my Scarlet O’Hara kicks in and says in a soft, whispery southern drawl, ” I’ll work on that tomorrow y’all.”
    I got that from Mom. 😎😊

    Have the best visit evah with HME!

      The phone contacts storage is fabulous! We can’t keep all those numbers in our heads now because we need that space for PASSWORDS!
      I know mine, The Mister’s, my mother’s, my mother-in-law’s, HME’s, and work. That’s all I got. Hadda be 100 numbers in my head back in the 90s! In my defense, cell phone numbers seem to change a lot for people now. All the numbers I know are 5-10 years old.

      We had a WONDERFUL time! 😀 Thanks!


  8. It sounds we were that same young once. 🙂 Lucky us! (And I had to look twice. I thought it said “we voted Republicans”. hihihii)

    Geez, Joey, if only you could fully express yourself. Open up! Get out of your shell some!

    And there was something about that time: “…we were so young we dated Republicans…” SAME.

      Weird, my mother says that, too 😉 Course we know my mother is not your granny 😛 We were not good, but we were careful (and supervised by the designated driver, should need for that have arisen!)

    “Hell, we were so young we dated Republicans,” made me chuckle. It didn’t matter back then when we were young. You picked some really good songs, though I was sort of grown up when I first listened to them. Have the best time with your HME. 🙂

    HME’s are THE BOMB! So glad you had a blast with yours. There’s nothing like the people who knew us back when coffee at 2am was a given to keep it real.

    ps – I’m loving all of your so-young trademarks. ALL of them so very, very true.
