Lost Art of Conversation
Random conversations. Online and off. Because some of you are WAAAAAAAAYYYYYY funnier than I am. Or maybe you just make me laugh. Either way, I’ll take it.
Lou Mello, at last night’s Rotary District 7770 Leadership Cocktail Hour:
Lou: So. Andra. You really freaked me out with this Voodoo Lou thing on your blog.
Lou: Me? Rotary pins? I mean, LOOK at me, Andra.
Me: Come on. Admit it. YOU’RE Voodoo Lou.
Robert Johnson, at The Quotidian Hudson, in response to my comment below:
Me: I need to print this picture out and plaster it to my forehead on my walk, Robert. I’m already planning a “walk 15 miles on the side of the road in formal wear on Mardi Gras” day and a “birthday suit on my birthday” walk (I’m still not sure how to do that without getting arrested), but Buddha might help me every day.
Robert: Well, if you were in NYC for your birthday I would gather a few of my photographer friends and we would walk with you and you could call it a performance art piece but I don’t know if that will fly on the Trace.
Carnell and me, while in the midst of setting up my e-mail:
Me: Oh. Here are my vitamins from this morning. I forgot to take them. I guess I can swallow them with this gin and tonic.
Me: Lest you think I make this blog stuff up…………gulp.
On my father’s behavior on our upcoming trip along the Natchez Trace:
Me: Mom, you HAVE to come out earlier. I mean, Dad probably won’t change one set of clothes, socks or underwear the entire time he’s with me.
Mom: Oh, Andra. He’ll change his underwear.
Of course, there’s the incredible piece of encouragement my friend Alice sent me.
“Reading dreams. That’s what started her walking down the road. Every day she’d walk a little further: a mile, and come home. Two miles, and come home. One day she just kept on.” Breakfast at Tiffany’s
Or the incredible response to that quote from Steve Stanley on Google+:
Well…she’d better write, no matter what. Or there’ll be a lot of cryin’, hissy fittin’, and carryin’ on to deal with… 🙂
Dear Readers, you always give me just what I need, just when I need it. Thank you.
