..a cute contest where she ( http://dreamincream.blogspot.com/ ) posted a photo and started the caption with "this couple walked into my shop today and..." and you are to write a little story. I read some of the entries and they were great - stories of ghosts, antique selling and such.
But you all know how my mind works...here's the photo and followed by my story..I may not win, but it was a hoot to write...
This couple walked into my shop today and the gentleman (found out later his name is Rolly) asked if we "carried that 'Blue Collar Tour' CD - you know, the one with Larry the Cable guy?"
Then his wife, Ophelia, said she really liked "that Ron White fella better than Larry"
I was surprised to say the least that this couple would have been "into" this kind of comedy - no less they knew what a CD was..
Rolly said their daughter, Tillie, was auditioning for "My Big Redneck Wedding" and he was not all to fond of the location they had picked out for the ceremony- the bowling alley next to the 7-11. Said Tillie was too young to be in that part of the neighborhood, being only 12 and all.
Ophelia said anyone weighing 250+ was able to take care of herself. I had to agree.
We found the CD- then it was off to find the Tostitos and Bean Dip for the reception. I reminded them they really needed wedding cake and they said Tillie had already made one with Twinkies and Gummy bears..To each her own I guess.
Finally they said they were off to the Red Box to rent another Wrestling movie.. said it wasn't the same without the "Rock" anymore. Gotta love that Dwayne..
"Bygones" was all Rolly said. He looked kinda sad..
They were finished and as I wished Tillie luck on the audition.
Ophelia kinda smiled and said "No matter - she's off the farm before pig season - she does like that bacon you know.."
Yep, just another day at the shop. Maybe I should have listened to my parents when, upon learning where I was setting up knitting shop, just shook their heads and mumbled.."location, location"...
