Well, I am tellin ya today...I DO DUMB DUMB DUMB STUFF! I think I need to starting limiting myself to one dumb thing a month that way my life doesn't quite sound so bad. Okay, maybe not bad, I don't think I have a bad life, but I guess so I don't sound so dumb!
Yesterday I stopped by Naomi's to pick up her list so I could go to the store for her later. I was helping her find some paperwork and my phone went off. I got a text message stating "going fishin, hope u have a great day". I didn't recognize the number and I text back "Wrong number, but hope you catch a bunch". Of course I get a return text saying "This is (name), is this not (name)" and I text back "nope this is Shirley, don't know who (name) is but if ya catch enough I will take some fish". At some point I should have just said good-bye but I didn't, neither did the person at the end of the other phone. We ended up texting for...umm, uh....all afternoon and evening *okie watches the mouths drop open and feels the oxygen swoosh out of the room a the deep gasps....okie waits patiently for the exhales and feels her hair blow back from the force of air*. Okay well ya might want to sit down for this one *okie waits for everyone to find a place to sit* we ended up deciding that we would meet for lunch today *okie watches one of her readers pass out and whispers to the closest reader* do you think she will be okay?
I know, I know...how do I know he isn't a mass murderer or Jack the Ripper? Well during our conversation texting back and forth we actually found out we are acquainted, one of the benefits of living in a small town for sure. I guess that doesn't mean he couldn't be a Ted Bundy or such but at least I do know a little about him and know others that know him so that does make it a little more safe.
So my dumb thing for last month was a marriage proposal, for this month - texting a stranger for hours and getting a lunch date *okie suddenly wonders if she is obligated to tell her non-intentional fiancee about her lunch date and decides since the lunch date was non-intentional they cancel each other out and she is safe*. I am a little scared of what next month holds considering I will be out of the country with all kinds of strangers. Maybe BFF Karen better keep me on a tight leash, especially if alcohol is going to be involved since I did the other dumb things stone cold sober!
Karen -- you have your work cut out for you while you guys are on the cruise. I'll be praying for the both of you!! LOLReplyDelete

Okie- they were not dumb things. they were getting ready for a adventure lolReplyDelete
Wow! Did you tell him you are an engaged woman? Is this going to be an "open" marriage?? You are a wild, wild woman Okie! *wish you lived closer, we might be great friends...*ReplyDelete
You never gave us more details about your marriage...when is it? Did you get a red dress to wear?
Awww, the adventures of Okie...you should write a book, it would be a best seller. Be sure and update us on how the lunch date goes. Some things are just meant to be.ReplyDelete
Wait a minute! Why would you get to NOT do dumb things when most of us do dumb things on a regular basis? Or maybe . . . it's just me???ReplyDelete

When I saw in the heading of the email 'Have I told you lately I do dumb stuff?' all I could think is what a great rubber stamp that would make or a T shirt! Thanx for sharing your adventures as well as your beautiful creations!ReplyDelete
Well at least you have to say your life is interesting and spontanous.ReplyDelete
