Real Conversation with Mom: New Year's Eve

Mom:  "I want to go honky-tonkin' on New Year's Eve.  Where can we go?"

Me:  "Um, what?"

Mom:  "Honky-tonkin!  Dancing with men!  New Year's Eve!"

Me:  "Well, I know of a club that's supposed to have a pretty good band.  Should we go?"

Mom:  "Is that honky-tonkin'?"

Me:  "No, it's just going to a bar with a band."

Mom: "What do we wear?"

Me:  "Something slinky.  And a push-up bra."

Mom:  "No, no.  You'll just get upset."

Me:  "Why would I get upset?"

Mom: "Because if we go out together, all the men will dance with me and ignore you.  Then you'll be impossible to live with."

Me:  "Mom, you are seventy-six years old."

Mom:  "When you've got it, you've got it!"

Me:  "And I don't got it?"

Mom:  "Not like me.  You'd cramp my style."


  1. Go for it, ladies! Who knows? You may just find your own Almanzo and Angel. Your blog keeps me in stitches!

  2. You should do it for sure! It sounds fun to me!

  3. I can't wait to read the post-NYE blog!! Only in SC can you go honky-tonkin' with a sixty-seven year, lol.

    P.S. Broiled cakes, condensed milk and Ewoks are super entertaining!!
