The Day Sipper

I was on Twitter looking for other "Jessica Patrick"s and came across one that lives right down the road from me. This Jessica has a blog all about drinks and might I add....some really awesome drinks.


Check it out!


He was gorgeous. Tall. Dark. Deliciously handsome. The first time she met him was at her favorite bar. No one that good looking had ever talked to her. Deep down inside she knew it would never work out for the long haul. He was from Connecticut and she was from Georgia. They both worked for two rival sports apparel companies. The only thing they had in common was a mutual friend.

After getting to know each other over scrambled eggs at the Huddle House, the two of them spent every moment together. They would go play miniature golf, go to the water park and spend countless nights together watching movies. He even took her to Chuckie Cheese so she could play skee ball. Neither one of them had to act like someone they weren’t. It was heaven for both of them. She loved him terribly.

Several weeks into the romance, he asked her to go with him to visit his parents in Connecticut. She couldn’t go because of work but vowed to remain true to him while he was gone. So off he went and she stayed behind counting the days until he returned.

While he was gone she got sick to her stomach every day. It must have been her nerves from missing him so much.

He finally returned but things weren’t the same between them and never would be. She had a new life inside of her that had never been in her before and he wasn’t ready for this new life. She felt abandoned by him in her most desperate hours of need. All she wanted was for him to say everything would be okay and he’d be there for her. The only thing he was there for was the hour and half drive down the interstate.

My First Kiss

I know I’m seriously behind on the times especially when it comes to music. When I was younger, I always knew the newest best songs on the radio but in the past few years I’m lucky to know any songs that aren’t sang by The Fresh Beat Band or the Backyardigans. A few months ago, I turned the television to CMT and fell in love with Kelly Clarkson after hearing her sing Don’t You Wanna Stay with Jason Aldean. I’ve watched the video over and over and finally for the first time heard it on the radio today. I had a three hour window in my car by myself….it was heaven! I’ve listened to the song numerous times and have finally come to the conclusion it’s a song written about a first date or either a rekindled love. It really doesn’t matter, the song is awesome. It makes me think about my first kiss. Oh, how long ago that was!

My first kiss happened when I was in the seventh grade. It was nothing like I imagined nor what I expected. I’m not sure what I expected but certainly not what happened. It was one of those awkward moments when you’re not sure where to place your hand or which direction you should tilt your head. All I can say is that it went wrong, terribly wrong. During the middle of this “passionate” middle school smooch, the guys tongue went straight up my nose when I adjusted my head. Sadly, I was too grossed out that he had tried to suck my lips off of my face to even think badly of him cleaning my boogers from my nose.

That happened on a Friday. By that next Monday, everyone at school heard what happened and I broke up with him. It was just too humiliating to walk around with him knowing more about the texture of my snot than I did. Summer break was a week later. And now almost 20 years later, I’m finally talking about it. I need a therapist.

Dirt Road Anthem

Last Wednesday night I watch the CMT Awards and was sooooo happy to see Colt Ford doing a little bit of entertaining even though he was cut to a commercial. I was even happier at the end of the show when Jason Aldean performed his cover of "Dirt Road Anthem" along with Ludacris. "Dirt Road Anthem" was written by Colt Ford and Brantley Gilbert. The song is about the good ole days and was written about the small community where I was raised. Potts Farm is about 1/4 mile down the road from my parents.

I've been reading blogs and comment posts about the performance with Ludacris and so many people have been really negative about the entire thing from Jason Aldean doing the cover to having a rapper included in the song. There wasn't anything wrong with the song or the performance. I guess my irritation with the complaints is the fact that the complainers don't realize how much the human products of the 70's and 80's (and the 90's but they aren't my generation) around here don't care if you're black, white or purple. We grew up liking everyone and listening to all kinds of music. One minute we were listening to The Judds on Y106.7, then we changed the station to V103 to listen to Luther Vandross, and we finish up with Weezer on Bulldog 103.7.

It's just nice to be able to listen to Brantley's and Colt's song and be able to think back to the good times when we didn't have any worries. It lets us remember where we came from.

No Apologies....Not Happening!

I was chastised for exploiting a news story on my facebook page in reference to a man who was arrested for trying to entice a minor for sex (or something similar). I was told this man is a person and has a family. Well, guess what….I am a person and I have a family, too and don’t want my children molested by a predator.

1. Creepy men don’t just get arrested for the hell of it. There is a reason and cause behind it. (And for the record, I personally don’t believe in “innocent until proven guilty”. Like I said, there’s obviously a reason he was arrested. We all know OJ killed Nicole but he was found innocent and we all know Michael Jackson wasn't innocent either!)

2. This creepy man used to work at the same school from where I graduated. Yes, it was several years ago but just the thought of this man having access to young people freaks the crap out of me.

3. He claims to be a Christian. I don’t know a single Christian who’s a sexual predator. I have however heard of several sexual predators/offenders that claim to be Christians.

I’m not going to apologize for offending anyone. There’s no point in it.

My Post Disappeared

I wrote a short post about Obama the other night. Sadly, it has gone MIA in cyberspace. Maybe it will return in a few days. I think the Secret Service or CIA may have had it taken down for content reasons...who knows?

One Billion Dollars Going to Waste

I just heard on the news that Obama is expected to raise nearly a billion dollars for his next presidential campaign which I am pretty sure he will suffer a huge defeat. If he can raise $1Billion in attempt to stay in office another four years why can't he make a better attempt at improving our economy?

And remember folks....Obama didn't catch bin Laden....Navy SEAL Team Six did the job along with intelligence from the CIA.
