I'm in Oklahoma for my sister's wedding. So far we have:
  • shopped at Wal-Mart
    (full disclosure: I got two great party dresses for $15!)
  • heard a song called I'd Like to Check You for Ticks
  • experienced the banjo riff from Deliverance as a ringtone
  • bought these:

At Wal-Mart:
Sister: So the last thing we need for the BBQ is a case of Bud Light.
Mom: (whispers to me) I'm not wasting 150 calories on Bud Light! Do you want to get something else to drink?
Me: (nods)
Mom: How about Dos Equis?
Me: I dunno, I had one at the restaurant last night but it tasted kinda strange.
Sister: (chimes in) That's 'cause beer's not allowed to be more than 3.5% here!
Me: No way!
Sister: Yep. They even used to have dry counties here not too long ago.
Mom: So what should we get if we don't want to drink watered-down beer then?
Crotchety Old Lady: Hot chocolate.

When I was job hunting, I interviewed at a place in Texas that was in a quasi-dry town. You could go into a restaurant and get a drink, but nowhere could you buy something like a six pack or a bottle of vodka to take home. You had to drive out of town to do that. I'm so glad I didn't get that job. That wasn't the only thing that made that town suck.

Hahaha, that must have been fate—I really can't picture you in Texas!

I don't mind not drinking but it's funny how people like to put in their two cents here. My sister was trying on a top that was clearly too tight in the chest and as my mom was giving her feedback ("I think you need to go up a size, honey") the guy running check-in at the dressing rooms pipes up like, "yeah, I think she's gonna have some trouble here (points to armpits)."

That is too funny! I'm glad we don't have that kind of stuff up here!

Heh. Seeing those religious candies reminded me of a some gummy crosses I saw in Tennenessee. I think the slogan was "They're cruxicious!"

"My Sister's Wedding" - a new musical?

Meanwhile, in the non-Biblical Belt...

I forgot to mention that I have a tin of Dilbert wintergreen "Appease-Mints" that I probably found in a dollar store years ago.

Wow.....so much has happened for you over the last year. I can't believe it's already November when it seems you were just here a short time ago after Christmas. :( I am a rotten friend and I am so sorry I let life carry me away. Would love to touch bases if you don't hate me.....
