Embracing my Inner Hick

30/Mar/2007

I know what you love to hear: Excuses from bloggers on how they’re too busy to blog. Or! Better yet! They are just busy enough to update their own blog sporadically but too busy to read your blog and actually make a contribution.  Meanwhile, you’re reading their updates and contributing selflessly.

Excuses, Excuses. And, as a teacher, I know excuses.

I have my own excuses that I will not bore you with. Instead, I will tell you that I’ve thought of you, I’ve read your comments, I’ve wanted to respond, I’ve read your website and wanted to respond, I’ve drafted several posts in my head, including but not limited to:

“Which comes first, the Mullet or the Motorcycle?”
“A math question: If I ate my weight in popcorn, how much popcorn would I eat?”
“For a straight ‘A’ student, I flunked it twice.”
“Times I think I suck as a parent.”
“How I ruined potty training in a single afternoon simply by letting her wear panties.”
“Nothing says white trash like a toddler in a panties and a wife-beater on the balcony. Unless the toddler strips off her panties and poops, then you’re a Flinger.”

And, finally, a post I wanted to share for a few weeks and never got around to placing it on You-Tube:

Originally shared with family on Feb 16th, now making a debut here for the Entire Internet. Why? Because I encourage you to embrace your inner hick.

  2. I’m not sure I buy it that Mr. F. isn’t a hick.  Kicking up his heels just came so naturally to him.  She of course is just too adorable for words.

  8. Is that Mikey or Mr. F? Either way - the boys got some moves! I don’t think we should ever let LB & Ry out together to dance. LMAO - the rocus they would cause from all those boys!

  16. Nothing wrong with letting a little of the inner hick free every now and then.  Besides, as a frequent live show and music festival attendee, I have to say that few things bring as much joy to my heart and smiles to my face as a little kid dancing around with joyous abandon that I only wish I had…
