This might sound like I'm whining and maybe I am but not for a long time because "ain't nobody got time for that." I'm one of those people that don't sit around long waiting on a good time. I can make a good time all by myself. I can make a good time out of cleaning the house 'cause I will turn the radio way loud or in my case the Spotify and dance with the broom. Yep, I bet my neighbors (if I had any) would think the witch was loose if they came by my house and looked in. Well, you know what they say. If the broom fits, ride it.
I'm not really sure where I'm going with this so I hope it gets good somewhere along the way and makes you laugh or giggle a little. It doesn't take a lot for me to have a good time. Just this week I met a friend for dinner because I had made her something and wanted to give it to her. There was absolutely NO alcohol involved but we laughed so hard I thought we would be thrown out of the restaurant. Luckily they didn't because those dang half price tacos were good. I mean if I'm going to be thrown out, at least let me finish my tacos.
Y'all know how it goes, when women get together they gonna talk about any and everything. I wished I could tell you all the funny stuff but I promised anything that was said at Big Daddy's would stay at Big Daddy's. Yes I pinkie swore that my lips were sealed, never to repeat to anyone. Hold on a minute though, she had to pinkie swear too so don't go thinking she was the only one with something I can't tell. So you see, that's why we all need a night out. If nothing else, just to laugh and enjoy the company of someone that will lift you up in conversation, motivation and if you're lucky enough, like I was, you will be inspired before the night is over.
I'm sure you wondering how could a "girls night out" be an inspiration. Y'all know I'm about to tell you, so hold on. Have you ever met someone that just talking to them gives you a feeling of peace and maybe even a little comfort? Yes of course you have! So that's what happened just talking to my sweet friend. I'm not sure if it's her voice or on this particular night, her ability to tell that I was feeling a little sad. Keep in mind, I have absolutely NO reason to be sad, but I've had questions weighing on my mind lately that I just can't get the answer I'm looking for. I'm not exactly sure what she said but the thing I remember is her telling me that I was beautiful, smart and lots of fun. This might not be EXACTLY what she said, but that's what I heard and this is MY story, so I'm telling it my way. She said all this while I was dabbing at my eyes, trying not to cry. Needless to say, she knew she better do something quick or the flood gates were about to open wide. Being the funny person she is, she said something that made me almost fall off my chair.
LESSON today? Take a minute and remember the last time you had a night out. If it's been a while, get on the phone right now and plan one soon. Go ahead take the chance, dance the dance but don't you dare call someone that's not going to be fun. Don't you waste one nano minute calling someone that is negative. No, no, no we don't need that kind of people at our party 'cause life's too short. We don't know what tomorrow brings, we ain't here for a long time, and for the love of Peter, Paul & Mary, do not end up with a "tear in your beer" as Hank Jr. says.
Love to all,
Sweet Southern Sass
