Let Me Introduce You to My Bail Bondsman...

Ha! Just kidding. I didn't get arrested. I didn't assault anyone with a turkey leg. I pretty much didn't even speak (yes, that was difficult... thanks for asking). And I found out that you can sit across a dining room table from two people and not even look at them. Not once. It was uncomfortable and unpleasant, but I made it through. And I was never so thankful for a meal to end. And that, my friends, is what I will be recording in my gratitude journal tonight!

Yea!! It's a good thing, because when you told me a few days ago to be prepared to bail you out, I knew there was no way I would be able to afford to get you out. You know I'll do anything for ya, but thank goodness! Seriously, Glen and Rob in the same day? Good god woman! What did you do in a former life? And, can I just say: 10 to 7. 10 TO FREAKIN' 7!!!!

Lee said...

OK. File that away. (You've done it once. One day you may have to do it again!)

Well done.

J Cosmo Newbery said...

Disappointed. I've always wanted to be able to say I know an axe-murderer.

Oh...I sit across from my sister and never speak about any of the crap we have gone through...I think I would rather sit in silence than make the stupid, stupid small talk she makes me do! Oh...but we aren't talking about me....I am glad you survived nad I am sorry something more festive and enjoyable can't be done by all!
Enjoy your holiday weekend!

Mel... 9 hours? My GOD, woman, you deserve a medal!

Lee... yeah. I used to work for an awful man who expected miracles from our team, mostly because we delivered them. I'm afraid my mother might turn into him. I should remind her that we all nearly had nervous breakdowns by the time that company was sold.

J Cosmo... the year's not over yet. I still have to get through Christmas.

Ronda... I don't think I could have choked out small talk had I tried. So I didn't try. Thanks for the well-wishes :)

Sounds... like... a... really...

Um. Sucked. SOunds like it sucked. At least you didn't partake in any fighting, right?

My husband, who is a 21 year veteran for the Sheriff's Dept. of San Diego, says that Tday is, like, the worst day to work patrol. Because of all the domestic fights. He said that more fights break out on Tday than any other day. So yay! You didn't become a statistic! That's something, right?

Right?

Hey, where are you going...?

Andy said...

Congratulations, although I would love to hear what you'd write if you had to go to jail.

Heinous said...

Assault with a turkey leg is perfectly acceptable on Thanksgiving. I checked.

Diane said...

Guin... Thankful for not being a statistic... yes. Very.

Andy... Maybe you'll get to read it after Christmas. Sit tight.

Jim... NOW you tell me! DAMN!!

Protege said...

And now you can look forward to a very nice weekend in a great company:)))

Glad you made it through. Although, I agree with everyone else...I'd love to hear a story involving one or more people being bludgeoned to death by a turkey leg. :)
Next year, you can come eat with us! We're friendly, most of the time!
