Follow UP

This is a follow up post to High Jack. I felt it was needed. Okay so the book was fine, it didn’t have as many bubbles on it as y’all may have thought. It did not get soggy or anything like that. Jeezzzzzzzze, some of y’all really panic over stuff. Yes I photo shopped extra bubbles to cover some...err...umm personal bubbles. Now I can tell in my Freudian kind of way that some of y’all, sadly, have had bad bathtub photos taken by your mommies? And that may have lead to your lack of bathing. OH MY Goodnesssss, I can’t believe how many of my dear internets don’t bathe. No wonder the perfume industry is so big.

Okay so now to the real point of this follow up post; Do y’all have any idea how big my head got after reading the super special comments? No? Well let me put it like this, {cue your favorite happy song. I’ll tell you mine later}…

It's about ME

I was floating like a bubble
Glossy, light and free
Carried higher than the average me
Above the clouds, even
Looking down upon my domain
My people, gazing up to me
Uttering sweetness all about me
Laughing at my silly bravery
Wishing to be me?
I blush, with vanity – seldom
Showing photos without makeup
No hair doo, just hair don’ts
It’s not confidence as one
Would think, it’s laziness
Or craziness, when it comes to me
I do recommend this type of attitude
It’s not as if I’m on stage
There is no live audience
It’s all virtual, don’t you see
Truly only a virtual me

So there I was displayed in subdued glory {wink} when the loverly Candy Lady, Jannie, said, “You are crazier than I am!!!” Impossible as I no longer climb trees. And my dear ElizabethR said this “you are by far the zaniest woman on this earth. You are what Cool wants to be.” Did y’all read that! She said Earth, not just Texas or the U.S.A. but the Earth! And hows about that next line…Cool wants to be ME! Lalala faladidah or as the Fifth Dimension sang…

You shine, shine, shine Lady!

Loved the poem, Paige. And you are definitely brave, and cool, and crazy and sweet. I hope you have a great week filled to the top with bubble baths and chocolate cake and love poems. :-D

Oh you *Silly Goose* you! Just 'cause I don't love soaking in a bath tub full of bubbles, I do *bathe* in my shower. You silllllllllly! ,-)

Hugs and ♥'s...
'Cause Valentine Day is coming!

I'm grinning!


ElizabethR said...

Ah Paige, I'm always guaranteed a good laugh whenever I pop in here :)

And you are too cool!

Jannie Funster said...

Cool DOES want to be YOU!!!!

Guess who had tiramisu and tea in the tub 2 days ago?? ME!! Thanks for your inspiration, Paige. No book in there tho, I was just munching, sipping and singing!
