Today’s post is a writing challenge. The last one of 2019, well the last UYW for this year. You know how it works: participating bloggers send 4 – 6 words or short phrases to Karen for someone else to craft into a post. We then use All words at least once and all the posts will be unique as each writer has received their own set of words. That’s the challenge, here’s a fun twist; no one who’s participating knows who got their words and in what direction the writer will take them. Until now. So join with us as we visit each other and see who and how our words were used. Fun right? If you are a writer/blogger and would like to join us, contact Karen over at Baking In A Tornado. She'd be more than happy to give you details and sign you up.
When I saw my words I immediately wished I lived closer to Miss Sassy Pants, who by the way is 9 going on 35 right now. However, I am now nine hours away from her so this little bit is part fiction and part fact. Facts being words and phrases she has said to me. Lawdy that child! So here we go. Thanks Rena for the words.
Sitting at the house waiting on everyone to get ready so we can go to dinner, Miss Sassy Pants is getting beyond impatient, pacing and saying "COME ON y'all I'm starving to death in here" while five people try to get ready in one bathroom with two dogs and two cats getting in the way.
Miss Sassy Pants as y'all may remember is my granddaughter. She is just as sassy if not more so than when she was a wee little lassie.
She now has gotten bored and turned the TV and is blasting Brittney Spears music video, my DIL is so proud. Me, not so much. I suggest cartoons and get the eye roll. and "Ugh, gramma, are you kidding, do I look 2?"
Well excuuuuse me!
Finally I said, "we'll meet you at the restaurant" and told MSP to come one. Boy she ran out of the house so fast she about took the paint off the walls with her.
We get in the Jeep and she yells "ROAD TRIP"!!! I'm laughing, girl what do you know about a road trip? she smiles "oh I KNOW about road trips" nodding her head and looking all impish. Lawdy here we go.
I crank it up and before I even get it in reverse, she has taken over the radio dial and is blasting some hip hop stuff and bouncing in the seat next to me. My eye roll time. Oh lawdy help me, I'm getting old. This music has GOT to go.
"Okay girl watch your mouth, a cheese coney is a hot dog with cheese."
"Then why is it called a coney?"
"Coney refers to the type of hot dog, frankfurter or wiener, whichever you want to call it." The last part of that sentence could not be heard because once I said wiener, she went totally hysterical. Laughing, slapping her knee and saying "you said wiener!". OMGosh child please. YES a wiener, as in hot dog. Don't be nasty! No need for a history lesson on coney's because she can't hear a thing for laughing so hard. Now I'm laughing and trying to drive.
"Okay giggle box, forget the cheese coney and let's stop at the park and take a walk by the river before we meet everyone for dinner."
