Happy holidays, and welcome in to another fun and exciting edition of "What I Should Have Said." Today's contestant once again, you know him, you love him... our very own Bone! On today's show, we find Bone going thru the drive thru at the local Hardees for breakfast. He is very happy, as he has just spent five minutes scraping ice off his car so that he can see to drive to work. This, despite the fact that driving with ice-covered windows and zero visibility is increasingly tempting.
Bone's order: Two cinnamon & raisin biscuits and a medium Mountain Dew.
At the window, we find today's willing accomplice, an extremely cute blonde named... Hmm... well names really aren't important. So we'll just refer to her as Meg Ryan. Meg gives Bone his total. He hands her his money and she hands him his food and drink. When she returns with his change, she sees the accumulation of ice around the car window and says with a radiant smile, "It looks like it snowed on your car."
If you would like to play, using your qwerty keyboard, type in now what you think Bone should have said. Here's one suggestion:
What Bone should have said: "Yeah, wanna come over and help me build a snowman?"
What Bone actually did say: "Yeah..." (and quickly drives away)
Eh, it's too early in the morning to be picking up chicks anyway. Especially very cute, friendly ones...? But I think I will be frequenting ye olde establishment more often. For breakfast only though. Not sure I could stomach a thickburger. Even for love...
Kids say the darndest things...
Switching gears, I thought I would leave you with a light-hearted slice of life. This exchange comes from my Mom via my aunt. My first cousin, who is in kindergarten, was trying to get her grandma's attention the other day. Grandma was reading or watching TV or something, so she resorted to other tactics:
"Some people don't believe in Santa Claus, Nanny."
"Some people don't even believe in God, Nanny."
"The only reason you believe in God is so that you can go to heaven and meet Elvis."
Attention achieved! Sounds like Nanny's been telling some very interesting bedtime stories. Have a great weekend!
"I'm quiet you know. You make a first impression. I've found I'm scared to know I'm always on your mind..."
