:: I moved from The Big City to a beautiful country locale more than three years ago. Life's been sweet, waiting for my jalopy to rust-out on the front lawn near the DayGlo gargoyle, whimsical chainsaw-carved bears, and our hubcap stand. I figure two thunderstorms and a frog-strangler should do it.
Then, only one mo' thang before we assimilate completely into undercover Witness Protection Program society. Git our 'neck names.
I looked through some redneck resources and name generators and found a special one at Internet Junk, easy 'nuff. I typed my squeeze's name into this here appellation-distributor gizmo and, instantly, there'd be her new handle! Looky...
Ooo-Eee! I gots me a new woman! Heh-heh. Now, if I could only get Missus Smead to smoke and hack and rear me a Dodge Dart full of drool babies.
I typed another name.
Suzy-Lee would like that name, if she weren't deceased. I hanker I'll bobtail over and Dyno-label her plot.
Time to assert my old man's name into the machinery ...
Too bad he's daid. That's a fancy lookin' name on checks of genu-wine rubber.
Say, my cat requires a new nom de guerre, too.
Shoot, I reckon.
Not since we spread the higher priced poop litter! Heh-heh. He's delightfully undusty. I shall call him Clumpy Tuskwort.
Hey, our other, littlest kitty needs a name. Don't fret, they's free! They's free! ...
"Morty S. Tashman
That's not what his vet says. Heh-heh.
Well, guess I'd better face the music.
I - I - I dunno. It's not exactly glamorous, is it? Reminds me of the Fair, when I gobbled for apples on John-Bob Night.
I'm still feeling kinda flushed.
Hmmm, let's see, my bride baby, she calls me "Baby." I should prolly trade-in that name.
Hey-heh. Luv it! I thought
it said "Toolkit." But, that's me. Harry Toolookat. That could fit. Guess I
needs to let my ears grow out and stop the back plucks.
1. What size shoe do
At the moment, if you must know, I'm shoeless. I'm squeezed into extra-long tube socks.
I may need to change into a pair of sleeping bags.
2. How many pairs of shoes do you own?
Four in current rotation.
And the time-share mukluks.
I wear sneakers
exclusively. Being a vegetarian, I won't purchase leather. All my shoes are canvas. All my
meals taste like canvas.
Actually, my favorite
shoes are my Tigger slippers. I wear them during the cold weather months. They're cozy and
people stay out of my way at the Wal-Mart.
One hundred dollars -- but
that includes the money I lost walking out of Adam Sandler movies.
