Here is your special order, ma’am, hot off the press!
I was helping my aunts paint my grandmama’s house, the same one I was sitting on the porch, after Grandma had passed. Unfortunately, no one in the family could buy it, so it was going on the market. 😦
So, here we were, painting the ceiling of the dining room, do ya feel where this is going???
We are all laughing, then crying, talking about Grandma, and memories we had in the house. So, after a too long crying jag, I painted someone’s shirt back, just to get a laugh. Then, it was all out paint war!
Before long, we all had paint smeared hither to yon. I already had flecks in my hair, so I painted the stripe down the top, and said, “Hey, y’all! Remember when Sherry skunked me??”
They all stared at me horrified!! “Melinda!! That is oil paint! You’re gonna have to use paint thinner to get that out!!”
“Yeah, but do ya remember when Sherry put that streak of white down my hair, by using all the bleach on me, cuz I was too impatient to wait for her to do it right?? Blast from the past, baby!“
And, just like 35-ish years previously, it had to grow out. But! This time Mama couldn’t yell at me for ruining my hair! HA!
I love my adventure filled life!
