It was once suggested I start a blog because as he put it, “funny always finds me.” ‘A blog?’ I thought. Do people still do that? I put it off and put it off vowing to put everything in my books.
“Books?” you ask.
Yes, I’ve written 2 books because I have A LOT of hilarious stories to tell. I am in waiting mode now to actually do something with my stories. In the mean time, I continue to write and learn more and more on how to improve my writing without loosing any of the humor.
I once had an offer from a very old cowboy to help publish my books. He himself published a book about his love for his wife. Awwww…When I told him my books are funny because they are inappropriate, he suddenly narrowed his eyes and sternly asked in a much lower tone,
“Now there isn’t anything racy in there? Like sexual innuendos?”
I debated for a few seconds on how to respond since my writing is completely inappropriate. I decided to take the high road and not ruffle his bible pages.
“No, absolutely not,” I declared. ” Just some cursing because I am quoting someone who cursed,” I said sweetly. It was as if I had never heard a curse word and my virgin ears would fall off should one grace my ears.
His concerned look quickly turned to approval and he handed me his card. 10 minutes later I ripped it up, threw it in the trash and said “screw that”under my breath.
So where does the Hot Mess come into play? Honestly I think it’s because I embrace my imperfections and I want others to embrace theirs.
You forgot to pay the electric and it was shut off? It happens.
Can’t lose the muffin top? Me too!
Hate Pinterest obsessed, “attempt to be the perfect mom” women? Can’t stand them either!
If you have an inappropriate sense of humor, don’t take things personally and love to laugh…..you’ve found home.
