Hold on loosely

I just woke up. I know. What am I, 14?

I went out last night and partayyed with my …friend. And who is getting tired of having to call him my dot dot dot friend?

Here is my dot dot dot friend pouring honey in his tea last night. I know! Raise the roof!

 

Do you know who needs to get over YouTube?

Anyway, somehow last night I was telling the story of someone I know who has issues with possessiveness. Dot dot dot friend said, "Wasn't it Alabama who told us, 'Hold on loosely? But don't let go'?"

Wise.

Then today he emailed me to say that was .38 Special, and it's important we get that deep message right.

So I had fun, and did not get to bed till after 2:00, which means neither did the dogs, because they wait up with rolling pins, and does anyone actually wait up with rolling pins anymore? Because if they did, wouldn't you be all, Why do you have a ROLLING PIN? You will be shocked to hear I do not own a rolling pin. Do you? If you do, everyone be sure to get all up in what you use it for in the comments, and then share rolling pin recipes with each other, and then check back and talk about how delicious your rolling pins made everything.

Because I will not come to your houses with a .38 Special or anything.

What IS a .38 Special? I mean, what makes it so special? Is it like when our parents tell us we're all special and it's just a regular gun like all the other guns, really? It's just a kind of chubby, homely gun watching Brady Bunch like everyone else?

Anyway. I have to go now because it is noon and time for Whitney's funeral live on TMZ. Later I will pick a comment of the week, so look on This Week's Special when I get back from the funeral.

When I "get back" from the funeral. I am .38 special.

  1. Sorry, June, shouting and waving their hands around is what your readers do when you DON’T post and they’re not reading you. Backwards, I know.

  4. I was thinking Nippy as in cold. But, I would be just as happy, even more so, with Nipply.

  5. I loved the reverend who spoke about love and death and how sad it’s going to be when the pies and cakes stop being delivered to the family. Can I get an ‘Amen’?

  6. Good morning. It’s 4 a.m. and I have a house full of girl scouts. One of them won’t SHUT UP and so here I am.
    I did not get to watch Whitney’s homegoing (see above) but I read every word here throughout the afternoon and I feel like I saw it all. Y’all were cracking me up.

  7. I didn’t see any of the funeral but thanks to the comments I feel like I was there.
    I got a lovely collection of kitchen goods from my parents when I moved out which included a rolling pin, pie dish and salad tongs. None of them have seen any action in 6 years.

  8. I saw a woman who works for CNN being interviewed this morning since she was an invited guest at the wedding. Several points she made:
    1. The first three rows of family and friends meet together before the funeral (maybe at the funeral home) and travel from there to the funeral. Bobby did not do that.
    2. Other guests were moved depending on new arrivals.
    3. Bobby was visually quite upset at Whitney’s death and this woman did not see how he would be able to last through the entire service.
    4. She thought he had moved to a row further back for privacy and no one inside the church realized he had actually left.
    5. She thinks his comments made afterwards will not help heal the rift with Whitney’s family.
    6. She said she watched some of the funeral on television afterwards (must have been repeated or maybe she saw clips) and she said seeing it on tv was nothing like being there in person.
    7. Because I need an odd number.

  9. Anita! I didn’t even realize I wrote wedding instead of funeral! Obviously, it was way too early for me and I had not even been up all night with a house full of Girl Scouts.
