skiddspoppe Gave Me a Black Eye!

April 7th, 2006 (05:27 pm)

Well, sorta.


Onnnnnnnnnnly Ginger could do this.
I was taking a little nap this afternoon and the phone rang, I reached up to tip the phone
off it's rest and into my hand. I was reaching for it on my phone table from my futon. MY
phone is from 1962--probably a bit heavier than most of ya'lls phones out there, right?

It slipped and dinged me HARD just below my eye at the peak of my cheek bone.

ALL that Skids could hear--having called from Vegas to congratulate me on the new gig
and catch up a bit--was Oww!!! @#$^!&@$%^@


Yup, I have a lovely little shiner blooming as we speak.

I've got an 1947 "Humphrey Bogart Special" that I bought at an antique store.

You could easily beat someone to death with it. Not like these suppository-sized cells that are out there now.

I don't trust a phone I could swallow.

My Father's Father built the phone table my phone sits on,
and the phone that sits on it, was theirs. Maw-Maw and the Paw-Paw.
I only got to know him, until I was two.
He died while may Pop was in Vietnam.

Somethng about that whole "Altar to Communication" gets to me.

I'll take the bruises, thanks.

I love my old phone.

And I was toutingyour virtues all night tonight, too.

Hope your eye feels better (although I bet you look like a tough biker chick now)
