Bad dog

I saw a lawyer picking his wedgie on his way to court.

I drove behind a NY car with a big placard in the back window that said “bad dog” and had a picture of a pit bull. And then the driver made an illegal U-turn in the middle of main street. And I honked and said “bad dog.”

When I went to buy doughnuts the woman behind the counter kept calling me “hon” which people do around here – even if you are older than them – I wasn’t older than her this time, but she kept calling me “hon” and I sort of hated it. I ain’t your “hon” sprinkles or no.

    Was the guy picking his wedgie Paul?!?!?! Haha.
    Stupid NY drivers. They’re ALMOST as bad as NJ drivers. And always say YES to doughnuts! Chocolate glazed comin’ right up! :o)

      No, it was not.
      I did say yes to doughnuts!!! I went in because I had already said YESSSSS to doughnuts!
      I said a very big NO in my head though to the lady calling me “hon”
      I think she was eating and drinking all the sugar in the joint – she was pretty jacked up.

    That was the heroin talking, love! Haha – Good ol’ public square and the junkies who live there.
    So now in Texas, instead of hearing “hon” – which I hear all too often anyway – women call each other “mama.” Disgusting. I’m not anyones mother, yo.

  3. This made me laugh out loud, Rachel!

    Presumptions of intimacy can make one’s skin crawl. Oneskincrawl. Grrr.

    Bad dogs indeed.

    ; )

      Indeed! And so many waitresses and clerks in Pennsylvania say it! I wonder if they are trained to do so – if so – stop.
      It was an odd morning 😉

  4. I think I’d take “hon” over “mama.” Not so much of a trend here, as you will find when you arrive in California. But if I’m wrong, let me know.

    • rachvb says:

      California can survive on its own without trends. We don’t trend – we just do – and the rest of the world follows. I can say “we” because I was a born-bread. 😉
      I agree, though. I think I would take “hon” over “mama.” “mama” is just really pretty creepy.
      I’ll give you a report when I get back. Still counting down the days!

    I think that first line should be the first line of a book.

    So many things could go from there…

    At the care center where my dad is, an employee calls him ‘babe’. When we telephone, we are all addressed as ‘hon’. Yuck.

    ugh. yeah, pat was saying the other day how you guys were in a restaurant in Ennis or somewhere once and the waitress kept calling you “hon” and he said you were getting pretty aggravated. 😉
    I think it’s strange when it’s people younger than you calling you “hon.” It just doesn’t work!

  8. Hi, Rachel. Just came over to check out your new blog. Very pretty, although I was fond of the other one too. xo

    • rachvb says:

      Thanks, Melissa!
      yeah, I liked the old one, too. No need to change other than getting my site together and wanting to keep it all in one place. We are still working out the kinks. I think this will be a good home from now on, though.

  9. Like a fiefdom, an empire, so much more than just a blog. And LATIN? This I will need explained. It all looks, feels, very full of life and how fun to see your picture, along with pages of writings in their original state. Good work. xo

  10. rachvb says:

    haha! Yes, the Latin will go away soon! They are still working on the coding and all that good stuff that I don’t understand and am very much grateful for. They were hoping it would be done by the end of the weekend, so we’ll see. Still very much a work in progress.
    Thank you!
