i’ve always been one of those people that is on time. and on most occasions, i’m early. i even remember once in high school, being anxious about a big day… i got up, had curlers in my hair (this was 1990 people), make-up applied (the necessary blue eyeliner of course), and was getting dressed when i began to wonder why mom, dad, and Amie weren’t up yet since we are all notoriously early risers. it was then that i realized. it was 3am. i was early. way early.
but lately, my early ways have evolved into barely on-time ways, and sometimes (gasp), late ways.
such is the case with this book. this book that i originally wanted to “save” for the right quiet time. the right time when i could give it my full focus. “saving” it turned into never getting it read. i remember what my granny always said about best laid plans….
i also remember how i used to save my halloween candy until it molded years later…
between filming, and opening the store, and moving, and well…LIFE, the quiet time never came. and the book, I’m ashamed to admit, went unread. until now.
and i would like to thank the flu for this….
for knocking me on my hiney. yep. for making me sit still. and finally, 1 year late, getting to read sparkly green earrings.
you see, Melanie (aka. big mama in the blogger world) is our favorite person we’ve never met. she’s a true southern girl with some serious comic talent. we are kinda like BFF’s except that we’ve never talked on the phone, never made friendship bracelets, never shared those little heart necklaces that you give half of to your best friend and you wear the other half, never had lunch together, and never been in the same room. (i’m getting kinda depressed here.) but other than that… we are totally BFF’s.
anywho, since our BFF wrote a book, we’re super proud of her and even prouder to say how great it is. i laughed. and i laughed more. and the best part… it was the kind of book that left you smiling and just feeling …. happy the rest of the day. and anyone that knows us knows how much we like feel-good anything. feel-good movies, feel-good books, feel-good tv shows. and this, my friends, is a feel-good book.
and what, you ask, does this blog post have to do with tim duncan’s shoe? you’ll have to read the book to find out. but i will say this book is quite the opposite of tim duncan’s shoe.
now…i better get started on her newest book, the antelope in the living room….
well done, melanie…well done, my little BFF…andddddd by the way, this is headed your way…
no need to thank me…it’s just what friends do.
