Silly Little Lady


I never knew an oil change could be so much fun. You sang silly made up songs to me, Oliva, as we walked to breakfast while our car was being serviced, “Sweet potato, sweet potato, SWEEEEEET Po-tayyy-TOEEEsssss!!!” My silly little flower. I love you!

  1. And suddenly you call the shop and say: “It’s OK if you can’t get my car lube done in a Jiffy!” Love the photo and Oliva’s sweet potato song, Sandra. And for some reason, now I am hankering for a McMuffin …


    1. Egg muffin no ham. My favorite! My first job was cash register at McD’s in the middle of no where. My register was always short random whole numbers at the end of my shift as much as $20! I was mortified. No matter how careful I was it happened often. When I was in college I heard from a friend who said the GM was found guilty of embezzlement. Turns out I wasn’t the only one who was short after every shift.


      1. What a lousy thing for a GM to do, make young workers look incompetent, or worse yet, dishonest. I hope some time was spent wearing horizontal stripes, Sandra.


      2. Thanks Mark! It was my very first job. My first boss. I thought he was so cool too. He had a great sense of humor and was always jumping in to help when anyone needed it. My first lesson in the dichotomy of life. I heard he did do some hard time. I hope it was worth it. Kinda makes me think of Breaking Bad. Did you watch that series? I wonder what was going on in his life that made him feel like he had to make those choices.


      3. I watched one episode of ‘Breaking Bad’ and it was too depressing for me, Sandra. Just like the tale of your manager gone wrong. It did teach you a lesson, the hard way when you were young. I wonder if it did him?


      4. Yeah, it was a very dark series that’s for sure. I have another friend who could only sit through one episode as well. In her previous life she was entangled with a man she watched helplessly disappear into the deep end of addiction. I couldn’t pull myself away from the storyline. I think it was the writing that I enjoyed so much. Not everybody’s cup of coffee though, I understand.


    1. Thank you so much, I hope she sees it that way too someday. I am enjoying piecing it together. I need to stop by and catch up with Keri’s Journal. I think I may have missed a few entries. Last one I read was awesome. A bit of an artsy departure from prior entries. I love it. All of your entries are intriguing, really.


      1. Seriously!

        Do y’all have Sonic where you live? Matthew had a Grape slushie with Nerds candy in it last night. Pop Rocks would have been much cooler!


      2. Nerds! I forgot about those! I have been to Sonic when I lived in New Mexico. We don’t have them around here. Did Matthew like the grape slushie? Sounds like an interesting combo. I think you’re right. I’d like to try one with pop rocks too.


  2. Her hair is gorgeous in this picture! Mine exists in one of two states: hanging down or in a ponytail.
