Chickens in the Basement

I love to write and I love to laugh. When I write, I get to the point quick. My stories would fit on the back of a postcard. They usually make me chuckle. And you know what they say, "It's all about me!"

Aw, Hell No!

My buddies at SuzAnna's Antiques needed some help today...Jenny, The Red Bulletin Board, was supposed to be off to spend time with her son but wound up in the bed with a bug and Susie is still recovering from back pain! So, I got to go in and spend the day with some of my favorite people! Susie sat and wrote tags for goodies she purchased first thing this morning. I was proud of her! She priced and pointed. The rest of us tagged and displayed. With her work done, she went home to rest.




A customer came in with a baby carrier and the cutest little girl napped while mom shopped. When she came into the office to check out, Pretty Sam looked at the baby and, I swear if it was possible, the man would have lactated! He said, "I want another one!" He swooned over the baby and made faces. I rang up charges and did nothing to prepare for his next comment...



"Anna, why don't you have one for me? I'll go buy a turkey baster."


Being pregnant at 44 1/2 would send me right over the edge! Job hunting and pregnant? I'd say they don't go hand in hand! I can just hear my explanation to a future employer...


No, it's okay. I'll just spit this baby out, hand him/her over to her two daddy's and I'll be back at work within 48 hours. If it's born on a weekend, you won't even miss me!


You never know what kind of proposal you'll get when you enter SuzAnna's Antiques!


Aw, hell no!

LOL!!! Sounds like Sam! Too funny! Thank you so much for helping. I am still down and out right now. Better than yesterday, but I would never make it all the way to the potty if I was there today....every 20 minutes I would lose a ton of weight!

And here I thought you were a multi-tasker. You wanna get a job? Get preggers and the day after you find out someone will want to hire you. Guaranteed.

Better warm the turkey baster up first...

LOL!!!! I love Sam! He is just the best! Sorry I worked all weekend or I could have come out and visited! Glad Sam was there to "help"!
Hugs, Lisa

Anna!
I searched through my piles and found another skeleton key that I will make into a necklace and send to you. You have been such a great cheerleader for OGT and you always make me laugh. Email me your address and tell me what color/s you like...

You never know what will come out of Pretty Sam's mouth... Let's just not even consider what goes on in that brain of his:) hehehe...
I hope you are feeling on the up and up. How is the weather there? It's messy and rainy here. Ugh. And the booth and online sales are so slow. I've been praying for things to pick up but I'm worried that this period will last for a while. Oh well- At least I have my blog. Ta-ta for now-
Love,Stacey

Poor Sam. Tell him I feel his pain. Mike and I ain't likely to ever have kids, even as much as I'd love to have one. We do have fun trying, though! But then there's the issue of who the mom would be, who the dad would be, an endless list. Don't blame you, though! We've had offers, but not from anyone I'd want to birth my child! Ha!

So he's gonna make you a romantic dinner, (Roasted Turkey, obviously,lol) and woo you and all you have to do is carry a baby for 9 1/2 months, sounds like its a bit in his favor...maybe you can get him to make two roasted turkeys!
