the only bee in your bonnet

I have a new boyfriend, and his name is Ched'R Bites. We've been seeing each other regularly for the past couple of weeks and it's going so well. He puts my old flames, A&W Cheese Curds and BK Cheesy Tots, to shame. Plus he brings along his cute brother, Buttermilk Ranch. Oh it's a match made in heaven.

Today though when I ordered my ched'r bites and diet vanilla coke, the guy working at Sonic asked, "do you want to add anything else to that, like maybe some mozzarella sticks?" Um, no, I think one batch of fried cheese is enough, thank you.

(But if we're being honest, one batch of fried cheese isn't really enough.)

Then for some reason instead of doing their usual Nukem's Nineties at Noon today on the radio, X96 decided to go a different route--Every Song Tracy Loves That Will Make Her So Happy. Nice of them.

Finally, speaking of anniversaries: happy birthday, bionic spine. Here's to twelve months of great parking spaces, learning how to bend and twist again, too-short shirts, excellent posture, complications at airport security, stress-free internal organs, level shoulders, and every kind of pain management this world has to offer. I can't wait to spend the rest of my life with you.

Yay for the bionic spine.

I sang "Birdhouse in Your Soul" at karaoke once, and no one had a clue what the song was. I still did a good job, though.

this kind of reminds me of my last trip to Applebee's with Dad. I decided to take advantage of their three course classic deal, while still watching my calories. It wasn't until after the waitress left that I realized I had ordered a garden salad as an appetizer for my Oriental Chicken Salad entree (grilled of course). That was a lot of lettuce. At least I didn't order salad for dessert. The Key Lime Pie was green though....
That great song is another neat thing that you have introduced me to. Add that to the bottom of a long list.
I have a lot of memories of this day a year ago. I am so glad that the results were good, and that you have handled it all with grace and dignity.
Love you.

I can't tell for sure if you are feeling better or not backwise. Hopefully the pain management thing is in the past. You are a real trooper! You know I had to use an exclamation point.

Love ya,


PS H'ray Cougars!!!

I'm happy for the two of you. And no disreaspect, but I just don't think it will last.

Fried Cheese relationships always end in a broken heart.

Or am I thinking of a clogged heart?

What if you had a new spine made entirely of fried cheese? Would ya eat it? I know I would.

If this doesn't work out, give A&W Corn Dog bites a call.

Happy Birthday, too-short skirts! We love you!

I was going to ask if your spine was a birdhouse, but alas, the reference has already been referenced a-once too much.
