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!
