Hello folks, I hope y’all had a great Thanksgiving! I have a feeling you could be knee deep in Christmas lists or decorations and that, my friends, makes it all the more humbling to have you drop by the porch. Have a seat, and let’s chat…~smile~
I really enjoy sharing group text messages with my immediate family. With a cell phone on every hip, it’s a cool way to have group conversations at the drop of a hat and everyone replies pretty quickly, normally. The other day, I messaged the men folk what I was thinking about getting ‘em for Christmas and waited eagerly for a response. I got nothing. It was so quiet my text was echoing. Not one word from Phil, Patrick, or Phillip. I couldn’t even get my guys to talk about Manties. Yeah, man panties, the big thing in high fashion.
I explained to my men that I could order ‘em in high cuts or briefs, with or without lace, and for a few extra dollars, I could even have ‘em embroidered with their names. Again, they missed the humor completely. And that, dear ones, is a-okay with this belle. In my last book, Sue Ellen’s Girl Ain’t Fat, She Just Weighs Heavy, I discussed the southern woman’s preference for real men. That hasn’t changed. If anything, we’re growing increasingly concerned about the rest of the male population. Mirdles, manties, and guyliner– these latest straight running crazy developments have moved me to act on an idea I’ve been considering for some time.
As of today, I’m launching my own organization to combat SRC, Straight Running Crazy. We must act now. At the current rate of infection someone you know could be diagnosed with SRC in the time it takes you to read these words. Our motto will be “Commit Yourself to Raising Awareness of SRC.” Please join the Facebook group and contact me with SRC outbreaks wherever you find ‘em. Our first official SRC documentation will be these mirdle wearing men folk. Paulette thinks I could get a ton of negative publicity with that but I feel duty bound to call it the way I see it for the good of all mankind. Should the men fashionistas take issue with us, I will politely suggest they heed the advice that has served the rest of us so well, “Put on your Big Boy Manties and deal with it.”
P.S. I’ve got a SUPER DUPER CHRISTMAS GIVEAWAY for y’all. Read more about it here!
