Thelma and Louise…only better. They didn’t have a little metal chicken.

October 4, 2011 in Me and My Public Self,Stuff I Should Think About Regretting Later

I got this picture sent to me today by a co-worker who is a fellow redhead:


Let me back up about 12 seconds.

I emailed her saying I’m gonna be ditching the office on Thursday and Friday of this week.  She would be the lone redhead for a couple of days.


(Fast forward 12 seconds back to now.)

The smart sister and I are taking a road trip!  We’re loading up and heading out to Colorado on Thursday morning.

That’s Austin to Colorado.  That’s 14-hours one-way.  That’s a lot of me for her a little of her in one trip.

She wants to leave at some God awful hour in the morning.  Like 4:00 a.m.  Probably because she knows I’ll sleep most of the way.

Hence, why she’s the smart sister.

(I’m not sure what ‘hence’ actually means, but it sounded educated to use at this time.)

However, Thelma and Louise, we’re not.

I won’t drive that far in a convertible and she won’t wear white boots.  Or at least not with me she won’t.

And though I didn’t see the movie (I know…don’t start on me), I have a strong feeling there is another slight difference.

They had Brad Pitt.  We have Beyonce.

Oh, yeah.  She’s going.  My little metal chicken.

She’ll be strapped in the back seat and she’ll be in most all pictures.  So get ready.

And we’ll be safe and well protected.  In a way, she’s a weapon.  Her beak…razor sharp.  So, unless he looks like Brad Pitt, anyone who knocks on my window during a gas stop could easily get the shit beaked out of him.

We’re heading that way because her stepson is having surgery.  She needs to be there but doesn’t need to make the drive alone.

Hence (there it is again), that’s where I come into the picture.

For entertainment value only, I’m sure.

I’ll be seeing people on the road that I’ll never see again.  I’m feeling there will be a lot of blogworthy happenings and photo ops.

She’ll drive out there and I’ll drive us back.


Uh, I do know how the movie ends.

And after 3 days with me…it’s gonna cross her mind.

I’ll be updating as much as I can…which I can assure you will be more often than she’ll like.

But I encourage you to stay tuned…this is gonna be a wild ride!

Ohh…I cant wait for the stories, road trips always have stories. As for Colorado, that’s where I lived for 9 years. I love Colorado like a crackhead loves their dealer. Please take a picture of the CO mountains for me, just so I can reminisce. Have fun! (and I hope the stepson does OK).

It’s a deal. I can’t promise Beyonce won’t be in the picture…but I’ll sure get you one! Or 17. I’m good about taking pics then once I’m home looking through them and more than half get that, “Why the hell did I take this?” comment.

Hence, Therefore…. mostly used the same but… why?

Now, see, because of my friends…I are smart.

I love my friends!

“He’ll get the shit beaked out of him.”

Greatest line ever.

Well, you know there’s a word that fits better coming out of MY mouth, but I guess I should occassionally keep it a family show. Sometimes.

love the “shit beaked out of him”… yall have fun and be very careful…. can’t wait to read more!!

Carrie October 7, 2011 at 11:39 am

Sandy…it has been an experience to say the least. Eveything from almost dog attacks to possible illegal substances. And I swear, we unknowingly walked up on both then turned and ran.

We discovered quick…we’re not in Texas anymore! But getting back as quick as we can! Y’all will certainly be hearing about it all!
