Who says romance is dead?

Hello everyone! I'm so excited to be back. My project deadline has come and gone and I'm so thankful to get back to normal life - whatever that is! I can't believe how fast February has flown by. I know I haven't been posting but I've been reading your blogs to keep up with what's going on with all of you.

I really wanted my first post back to be better that my usual lame post awesome and meaningful so you'd hopefully not consider leaving me forever think about how glad you are that I'm back and how much you missed me. I tried, I really tried, but I feel compelled to tell you about something I saw yesterday.

I stopped at a gas station and while I was pumping my gas, I was discreetly watching this young guy and gal. They looked like they were in high school and since I'm fascinated with people's lives and I had on my big sunglasses which allow me to stalk stare to my heart's content, I was able to witness young love in action. They were so cute talking and laughing and I just smiled thinking about young love.

And then something happened that was totally beyond my comprehension.

This guy pulled a tin of dip out of his pocket, got some out and ya'll, if I'm lyin', I'm dyin' - this young, cute girl opened her mouth and let that boy put it in her mouth. I didn't know what to do. I wanted to yank her up by the arm and ask her why??? What are you thinking?? Don't you know how cute you are? You don't have to DIP for a guy! Oh.my.word.

It gets better. As they smile and hug on each other (with a lump sticking from below each of their bottom lips), he took that tin of dip and put it in her back pocket. A gift - no card needed.

GAH-ROSSE!!! I'm assuming that by "dip" you mean chewing tobacco? Because if we're talking chip dip, that might be acceptable excepting the fact that he's been keeping that in his pocket.

I need to say it again. GROSS.

I've missed you Jill. Don't leave on me like that again! That was just way too long.

And by the way. My URL has changed and I'm having no end of trouble with the blogroll updating etc. Just FYI. (It's being worked on as I speak.)

Blessings,
Sasha

LOL....That is DIS-GUS-TING! I guess that's what you get for staring at people. Ha ha!

Welcome back, I HAVE missed you!

And how awesome that Peeperspage is your gal pal! Yay for our small blog world!

Lianne said...

Eww, Eww, Eww!!!! At least they didn't kiss! Blecch!

Abbie said...

They ought to kiss while they can, because if they keep that dipping up their jaws will fall off!

LeAnna said...

Oh good grief, that is terrible! My FIL worked for the federal prisons and he said he only ever saw ONE woman dip the whole 30 some odd years he worked there, and she was a guard. Said it was the most gross thing he'd ever seen in his life. DISGUSTING! Our youth of today have no idea what real love is!

And yes, we missed you. Don't leave ever again.

HILarious. What better post back than a priceless gas station story? Poor girl...you shoulda scooped her up and brought her with you.

Peeperspage said...

Ha that is pretty nasty. I stopped at a gas station the other day. The one in Alabaster right by the Awful Waffle and saw 2 kids punching each other. The dad walked out of the gas station and got his child and walked him in the gas station and the other walked home. I thought I was dreaming. Anyways, welcome back to blog world. Sure did miss you

Gag. And from ER nurse experience, I pray they don't get into an accident and get hauled into the ER with that stuff in their mouths/throats etc.

Stephanie said...

RW @ TrueBeauty said...

Maybe she'll grow up soon. Of course this comes from a woman who used to ride in the hot rod, down the drag strip with your dad. But look how we turned out. Well, maybe not......

Trina said...

GAG! My first thought was, What part of town was this...cuz if that ain't redneck I don't know what is. LOL

Jill,
My first comment to make ever....and this is what I have to say. I made Marty read this blog because I thought it was hilrious. It reminds me of a few people we might know. Anyway, he told me to tell you the story about when he brought his college roomate, who was from Mobile, home for a big, country lunch. Well, he was not used to that meal and LOVED it. He said the lady who fixed the meal (and we all know and love, but I will not name her in this, got up and said "Time for dessert". Well he thought for sure an apple pie was on its way when she walked to the counter and took out a dip. He liked to have died. Do you remember those days?
